Outdoor shoot: Cosmoplitan Tv
but on the other hand there maybe no dressing room, bathroom and then there's the weather: it may be the coldest day of the year but you gotta look warm and happy (insert fake grin here).

He hands me my outfit and I find myself in awkward positions trying to take my clothes off and my new outfit on. I've learned that a 5'11" girl putting on super tight skinny jeans in a van, where the roof is only about 3 feet high, is NOT an easy task. Sweating now (but dressed!) I shimmy out of the van-the stylist seems happy with the outfit and then I am handed a leash with a very scrawny, very bald doggie wearing a camouflage hoodie on the other end. We all take a walk over to the shooting site. The cameraman and producer are talking about lighting and angles-I end up making conversation with the male model on the shoot who looks as equally dumbfounded as to what they are talking about as I.

Soon the models are back in a cab heading home and we all bitch about the usual stuff: being in debt to your agency, Toronto not having enough work for fashion models, $$$, blah, blah, blah. And while at times its hard, I keep doing it because of the adventure, because you never know what opportunity is just waiting for you. It is a risk but how will you know how far you can go if you play it safe, doing what you should do or what other's expect of you, your whole life. It's YOUR life!
