More lives than a cat.

posted on 26th of october, 2010

I have a very close friend of mine that also does stock photography and of course when we get together for some shooting we often use each other as models.

And as I look back at all the roles he has had me into I tickle myself remembering the shots. I feel like some actor in a play.

He has had me drunk and sleeping in a park.

Having an accident on stairs.

I have even been a rugged old blacksmith from years gone by.

Some times it's not all glory, as when I'm cleaning toilets.

But it is always fun.

We have had everything from police showing up to lend a hand, to bystanders chewing us out for taking pictures of some old man falling down with his walker.

But it is all in fun and has given us some good shots.

And yes he is a true friend and returns the favor, but that's a whole other story.

Great to find there are other nuts out there. My husband poses for me all the time. Most popular image is him as a flasher! I've done images with a swarm of wasps buzzing round his head (Photoshopped!), covered in bandages, playing the court jester. He's a great sport and says that, because he's old, he doesn't mind in the least. The only thing he objects to is when I use the word 'elderly' as a keyword. Thanks so much for sharing your own experiences.

Really terrific! How fun to have a friend where you can share these types of moments. I especially love the 1) accident on stairs and 2) you turned over in the chair at the park. Great shots!
