So…..my new pictures by the celebrity photographer have caused quite a stir. When I left the photo session the photog gave me all the images to take home. I guess she was going to do what she wanted to do with her copies but I was free to take all 205 images. I was bummed when I got home because my son (the professional photographer,) was on a company camping trip (which is super funny because he isn’t a big fan of camping.) Anyway, as his mom I was going to force him to photoshop the images so I could upload them to Instagram, but he was not available. I got to playing around with them on Instagram and posted 3. Yikes, the response I got was interesting. I woke up to so many Facebook messages, and Tumblr messages asking my relationship status. That is not really that weird but the weird part was that for the Facebook messages…….a lot of my friend’s husbands asked me that question. Weird!!
Then I sent them to my LA agent and they wouldn’t even look at them unless I sent them on a flash drive. So…..off to the post office I go. Then I sent them to my San Francisco agent and they were kind of “thanks but no thanks.” WTF???? These are beautiful pictures. But the more I thought about it, they are very theatrical shots for the LA market. These pictures would get me on a TV show or a film. San Francisco has no use for them because they are a commercial market. They want the big toothy smile shots and I didn’t take any of those. It is going to be interesting to hear what my LA agents think. I think my LA theatrical agent will be happy but not too sure about my LA commercial agent. I think she might want big smile shots too, and that just didn’t happen. So….we will see. I went to a lot of effort to meet up with this photographer. and so far it’s just getting me tons of “man” action and no jobs. I hope the tide changes. I’m completely happy in the “man” department, but I could use some help in the job market. lol
Wow, a crazy week, but today was all good. Got a lot done, and having a lot of fun as well. We just got home about an hour ago. A super fun day. Kinda romantic too. We usually don’t have time for that on weekends but we made time today. Now we are going to get cozy and watch Fallon!!! Our absolute favorite. Tomorrow more pool time, running, visiting my mom, and then a screening. I got invited to view “Pride” at a special screening in San Francisco, so I asked a very special person to join me. It should be fun. I’m interested to know how it is. It won awards at Cannes……so…..can’t be too shabby, right? Ok, getting cozy……right about now. :)
Does anyone know how long it takes to drive from California to NYC? If I end up there for a year or more I absolutely have to have Max with me and the thought of putting him in the luggage part of an airplane….I just can’t do that. A certain family member would move with me if it came to that, so we would have two drivers. I’m just wondering if it is possible to get across the nation in about a week?
