And Day 3, a day in advance, in case I didn’t get a chance to take a picture tomorrow. Bumble is hanging out with some mini Christmas decorations on the chandelier in our dining room.
I am taking a short break from writing my insanely difficult research paper to post pictures of our family’s holiday visitor. He has been named Bumble, and has been the source of great joy for our son, Toby. This shot is Day 1 (yesterday). Bumble attempted to help us decorate the tree.
I wanted to reblog this to help Miss Missy in her goals to doing whatever she can to make the amazing Bondi achieve her goals. Some group of women monitor Miss Missy’s facebook page and report any pictures of this woman that are posted. So take a minute to read this. You’ll understand why I want to succeed as a pinup photographer and why Miss Missy has become someone I look up to, though I’ve never met her in person.
Every-time I post new photos Bondi they are reported and taken down that day..Really? Why so jealous?
I’ve worked closely with Bondi the past year..She’s become a really good friend of mine, someone I can trust..It helps that she is totally stunning..She’s become my total muse and I am always coming up with things for us to shoot..I adore her and will go to all lengths to see her succeed in this industry because I believe she’s a true talent..She’s got some big things coming up, but you won’t catch her bragging because the girl is not like that..She deserves every good thing that comes her way, and the more you report her the more attention you are getting her, so why waste your time? Getting her posts deleted won’t make things not happen for her..It won’t make her go away..It won’t make you better than her..
I just don’t get it..When I started shooting all these beautiful woman I HAD to remove any feelings of jealousy I might have, not that I was every really a jealous person..I appreciate a beautiful woman when I see one, but I had to stop comparing myself to other women..The truth is, we’re all the same..It doesn’t matter what size, shape, color..We’re all sometimes insecure and we all have our flaws..If I’ve ever been jealous of anything it was when someone was confident, but doing this, I haven’t met too many women who were all that confident when you took all their makeup off and got them in-front of a lens that showed all their “flaws”. We ALL have things we don’t like about ourselves, you can either change it or make the best of it….Modeling is like acting in a lot of ways..Sometimes these woman come in and they feel horrible about them-self that day and they are worried they are gonna look fat or they’ve had something bad happen..The good ones hide it, the ones that aren’t so good let the camera see their problems and insecurities..I know Bondi has come over not feeling as sexy, but she will not show it when we start shooting..She will not show her bad day or anything that might be “wrong”..That to me is what makes a good model..Also, I hardly have to ever tell her what to do..She’s not scared of her body or her face..She does what comes naturally to her. Out of all the women I have worked with, Bondi is in my top 5 easiest to shoot..The camera loves her and so do I..I just wish these girls weren’t so intimidated by her, so I could share the work we do together..I’ve posted anything (of her) that shouldn’t be posted and should be removed from FB..Anything that shows too much ends up on here, I don’t want to risk my account being taken down..I work too hard to have hateful people get my work taken down, it’s not fair and I am pissed…I am pissed that today is the only day off I’ve had in a while and I want to share something with the people who look forward to seeing my work and like what I do and then some catty “women” get together on the internet and all report the same image so no one can see it and without even looking at it FB takes it down and now won’t let me post photos for a few days..
I don’t bother with many people in my area because of these kinds of problems..It’s become too much drama for me..I’m 31 years old and don’t want to play high school games with insecure “models” and “photographers”..If you don’t like me, and you don’t like Bondi and you don’t like my work, don’t add yourself to my friends list or “like” my fan page..It’s really very simple.
This is the photo that is TOO HOT FOR FACEBOOK…Well one of them..
