Weekend at the Expo

Yeah that read correctly. I received a email from a modeling agency last week inviting me to their booth at the Porn Expo in New Jersey. at first I ignored it but then I got to thinking. Well I do shoot Beauty and most of those people need great beauty shots. So I went online and purchased tickets for me and an assistant to the Business to Business Session of the Expo, That where other companies go in a pitch their services to the expos vendors.

Well The trip was turning into a total waste of time. only about 20% of the vendors were even present and most were just little sex shop sellers. not too much for a commercial beauty photographer to care about. there were a couple of photographers there so I did have some fun speaking with them. but neither of them really were my cup of tea.  so now I'm bored a almost 2 hours from home I was about to leave when someone called out My assistants name and to our surprise it was Kathy Wong! one of my models, No! Shes not a Porn Actress she was working a booth for a laser cosmetics company who set up shop to promote their services. It was that familiar face in this odd world I was in that kinda made me stay longer....

So know you are thinking why am I even bothering writing about this? Well I dont think I will get any calls for photography out of my visit to The Porn Expo so in essence to drum up new business it was an epic failiure. But there is a silver lining, I was writing in the previous post that I am working on a new shoot and whole new story line. and I was short a few resourses, Super cool motorcycles for one of the scenes in the storyboard. Well one of the vendors was a serious custom bike designer in New Jersey, Tribal Iron Choppers and the Owner promised to let me use his concepts in my shoot. Not only that but I found another Monster Jeep that works perfectly into my story line.

So sometime you dont get what your looking for but you do when you are not looking for it. Please look out for my story coming soon!
