A couple of weeks ago, I had a chance to do a formal style photo shoot, courtesy of my new friends Chris and Tomo. Tomo is a guy that just has this passion for photography and I think my friend Chris is going to end up being a supermodel one of these days. I met Chris while doing the Domino’s Pizza shoot last month. I swear that every time I see Chris, that “HAN-SEL” music starts playing in the back of my head. I can’t help but joke with Chris, saying that he’s Hansel from Zoolander. But if that’s the case, then that would probably make me the black dude who gets blown up near the beginning of the movie while playing in the gasoline (OH NO! :O ).
I needed to take some updated photos so these guys helped me to come up with two different photo shoot concepts. The first one, I was this cool guy drinking and talking to two ladies at the bar (that’s what I was aiming for anyway):
The other concept was a restaurant full of Donalds. This part of the shoot was the most fun. I had to be a businessman, a waiter, a chef, an irate customer, a woman, the woman’s boyfriend, and myself. Honestly, the funniest one to do, was the one in the dress because of the staff’s reaction to it. Truth be told, though, I don’t want to get into the habit of wearing dresses. I felt so naked in that thing, just a littler “free-er” than I wanted to feel. It was a pretty funny shot though. Anyway, here are some pics from the shoot. Check it out:
I want to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO Chris, Tomo, Yoko, Marie, Masa, and all the staff at Sasebo for taking the time out of your schedules just to help me. That was so much fun to do. I hope we have a chance to do some more shoots together.
As of now, I don’t have any special gigs to report, but if I do, I’ll be sure to tell you guys about them.
Thanks for reading,
I’ll see you tomorrow!
