Yesterday while I was test shooting I got asked to take my top off. There are a few things you should know first to understand my predicament.
1. I was on an unpaid test. On Swanston St. On a Saturday morning. Outside a flower stand.
2. It is winter.
3. It is unnecessary.
4. "You won't see your boobs though because you'll be covering them with flowers and your hands." Cool, what's the point then?
5. These shots are an editorial test being submitted for publication in a Perth magazine. "The editor said if we can get this shot it'll just really make the tulle skirt pop!" Next time the editor has such a big fat opinion on an UNPAID TEST that's being submitted for publication to HER MAGAZINE, how about she BOOKS ME and PAYS ME for an editorial.
So after succumbing to the dignity stripping predicament that is being topless crouching inside an enclosed flower stand on Swanston St, I said hurry up then this has better be worth it. No nip got shown, no public members saw a thing. "Can you just stand up in here because I can't get any greenery when you're crouched so low." NO I WILL NOT BE STANDING UP BECAUSE IT'S WINTER AND I'M NOT BEING PAID AND I'M A PERSON AND I DON'T WANT TO JUST GET MY BREASTS OUT.
