This is Lynsey, a server at the bar where I eat supper every Tuesday night (dollar cheeseburgers, mmmm!) Asked her to model for me, showed her my portfolio, she said "okay." We had our session Saturday morning and she loved it!

Interestingly, she'd modeled when much younger, but when she grew up she was told she was too short. (She's about 5'3".) That's too short for fashion, but as you can see it's not too short to be gorgeous in front of the camera:



Once I get her shots all done, I hope to talk her into posting on a few online portfolios - including GG of course! - and maybe sending in some images to some agencies in Chicago.

Speaking of which, I must be getting soft in my old age - she doesn't do nudity, but she was willing to do what I'd call middling-provocative lingerie.

I said, "No, if you want commercial work, let's keep your portfolio fairly tame for right now."

Like I said, I must be getting soft. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Bar Louie, Tuesdays from five PM. I don't know if it's all the Bar Louies or just the one on Damen - I'd assume all of them. Monday nights is 25 cent chicken wings.

Very nice! BTW, did you studder and stammer when you asked her to shoot? Or, were you suave and confident?

Thank you. I was "casual and friendly," actually. I've been eating there every week for going on a year - I wouldn't say we "know" each other, but we're used to each other. She took some convincing - it was showing her my portfolio that pushed her over the edge, so to speak. She knew I wasn't hitting on her - she knew me enough that she knew I'm a nice person (I tip well [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] ) and that I'm married. But seeing the pictures reassured her that I wouldn't make her look ugly. Which, as you can see, would take some doing, but could doubtless be accomplished.

Oh, I almost forgot the *really* funny part. I had *meant* to ask her a few weeks before, but that same night, a co-worker of mine mentioned that he was going to ask her out that same night. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] So I agreed to put it on hold for a few weeks. (She said no, incidentally, but she was really sweet about it - she's got a boyfriend.)

Beautiful photo of an attractive woman. Glad to hear that it worked out well for you. Getting soft in your old age? ... nah, just wiser. At least that's what I tell myself. Good luck and thanks for sharing. Steve

Too short for the American fashion market, perhaps, but her looks and height would work very well for the Asian market.

Yeah, *right.* She just dipped her toe in the water and I'm going to send her to play with *polar bears.* I don't *think* so. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
