A few months ago for my VERY first time ever, I had a photo shoot. It was a photo shoot for work and I was nervous but I presumed I was in good hand. OH MY GOODNESS. If I say I was given a beehive that would make Amy Winehouse (R.I.P) proud, I wouldn’t be exaggerating.
When you haven’t been on ‘shoots’ before you don’t want to act like a bloody diva, so I just went with it. Beehive and all. Then I was handed a leopard print coat and red lipstick. Oh sweet flipshizzle. WHY? WHY ME? I looked like a cast member from ‘Absolutely Fabulous’, my friend Gen even went as far as to say I looked like Fran Drescher’s best friend from ‘The Nanny’.
Ok, I thought, don’t panic. It’s only a picture. Oh wait, what? Z- Cards? Bio pics? please nooooo. Luckily for me, we got a new PR team who agreed that I looked like a twat. They decided to reshoot just this week. THANK FLIP. ok so here we go, I know now to stand my ground. Make up was AMAZING done by Pam Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org). My hair looked MUCH better and our PR manager had her own wardrobe with her so I had a sick outfit.
This should be good, MUCH BETTER. You know how you want to see pics STRAIGHT away? so I got sent just one, (I prefer the ones where I’m smiling, but this is all they had.) cool, I can’t wait…
email gets sent… it’s a great pic, but something is weird, different. you have GOT to be kidding me. All my moles and beauty spots are gone. GONE. I’VE BEEN PHOTOSHOPPED.
I HATE photoshop. If you’re going to remove my beauty spots you might as well make my eyes green while you’re at it, make my boobs bigger and my hair red. I mean… what the actual flipshizzle??? I have a no photoshop rule. A good pic is a good pic, I’m not a model, and am actually offended that someone thought my ‘face’ should be changed.
I would rather look average in a photo and look better in real life, than look AMAZE in a pic and look sh*t in person. fact.
Since I first noticed this I was told that actually it was just a draft pic and it wasn’t ACTUALLY my pic. Luckily for me, our PR peeps and our photographer agreed that I look better with my beauty spots. haha.
