The above pictures were taken by a real photographer. Brittany, Taylor and Thea are three members of the CHEZ 106 / Ottawa Sun Sunshine Girl beach volleyball team that will be playing at HOPE this year. I got the chance to go to their photo shoot on Tuesday, I guess the plan was for me to mill about and take some pictures of my own. So I did.
Again, these pictures were NOT taken by me. They were sent to me after the shoot by Mark Williamson from the Sun - he took them during the two-day shoot. Brittany is on the left, Taylor in the middle and Thea on the right. A couple more of Taylor, sent over by Mark:
See, this is what a real photo shoot is like. It takes place on a big white sheet under big bright lights and a lady holds a fan to make hair blow and the photographer points at stuff. The wardrobe is carefully planned. High heels are a must. Swimsuit models and strippers always need heels. Even though they are likely the two professions (well, and maybe construction) where high-heels are the least convenient thing a person could wear. Especially when you’re on your way to play beach volleyball. Here’s more photos of Thea:
Once again, these photos were not taken by me. These photos were taken by Kaitlyn, our promo assistant, who accompanied me to the photo shoot at Events In Style on Murray street. This is Kaitlyn:
Kaitlyn is an actual volleyball player. And at least a halfway decent photographer. She’ll be at HOPE with another team. She tells me they will not be wearing high heels for their game. Now, the pictures I took.
It appears I cannot be trusted with a camera. If this radio thing doesn’t work out, I will not be able to fall back on any kind of photography career. I also took these pictures:
This is either Kaitlyn preparing to bump a volleyball, or demonstrating how to take a dump in the woods.
Swimsuit models eat healthy food.
Brittany was getting ready for her shoot as we left.
Kaitlyn took that one. The woman in the green dress was the one holding the fan for the models. She may have been the best looking woman there! Okay. My career in photography clearly will not take off, I’m done.
