I always approach modeling gigs with new artists with a high level of suspicion. I’m not paranoid, but that “Sister, Sister” episode left a lasting impression at a very young age. But if potential employers can screen people on Facebook, I can too. This artist had a Facebook fan page, so that makes him legit, right?
When he joined me at the makeup artist’s house, his first words to me were “You look very different.” Great.
It wasn’t a photo shoot this time, but a shoot for an American-born Taiwanese DJ’s music video to be released in Europe. Got all that? We stepped into the windswept streets of downtown Taipei to shoot, much to the interest of passersby.
The guy seemed pleased at the end and said he wanted to work with me (and any of my foreign friends) again. Without further ado, “Nadia.” It takes awhile to load, so be patient.
