This post is for the faithless flock who never believed a word I said when I mentioned that I’d entered the world of cocaine, chain-smoking, who’s-who parties, modelling, glossy magazines and photo shoots (okay, maybe some of you believed the first three). A big “BLEH” to all of you. Faithful Loesil was the only one who didn’t blink an eye when I posted about it back in August, obviously seeing natural talent for what it is.
I recently read on Uno’s blog that it’s not unusual to walk around foreign countries and see your friends’ faces blown up on billboards, due to the cheap cost of production film and advertising in South Africa. The same can be said of Vietnam. This place is a production mecca bursting at the seams with potential, especially for foreigners, who for some strange reason attract the undivided attention of much of Vietnam’s population – or at least the advertising industry seems to think so.
I did another shoot today for a photo production company who sets up photo libraries for Getty Images. Here are some from the shoot in August. I’m not really sure if I can get in trouble for posting these, but I think it should be okay – but just in case: These photos are all under the copyright of Getty Images and may by no means be used, or reproduced. There, I said it. Don’t laugh too much!
