Photographer: Ryland Haggis, Redpilot Media. (I helped too)
Here’s a funny thing… So my multimedia company, Redpilot was hired to do a cover shoot of a physically exhausted runner for the cover of the British Journal of Sports Medicine. We had 2 days to shoot it , and missed the opportunity to grab some shots of tired runners at a big marathon by a few hours on the first day, and it was pouring rain the next day, so the shoot got pushed until late Sunday night.
*Cue panic.* Who are we gonna shoot? How are we gonna get this shot? Do you know any models? Or runners. Pause. Reflect. Oh right you’re a model. Aren’t you? And didn’t you run? You must have run at some point! Let’s just shoot you.
Gah. So at 11pm on Sunday night, I’m running up and down the staircase in my apartment whilst spraying water all over my face and body to get the desired sweaty, red-faced exhausted look. I have no make up on and I’m dead tired and somewhat unimpressed and that’s the picture that ends up on the cover of a major magazine. Yes that one. No not the one where I’m all fabulous. The one were I have a crazy illustrated brain and boney teeth and weird organs and stuff popping out. That’s the one they’ll remember you for.
PS. Don’t even talk to me about the legacy of the BC Transit Bus Guide Girl.
PPS. I have a HUGE & famous brain. I’ll out think all of yous! Seriously, quiz me on anything! I dare you!
PPPS. If you crack a Skeletor joke, I’ll shank you!
