Excuse Me, Am I A Model?

Posted by Ruok On September - 14 - 2007

I’ve been advertising myself on AADB for over a year now, and while I have gotten lots of auditions from there, I haven’t been able to clinch any job so far.

That is until about two weeks ago. Wendy called me up for a last minute photo shoot and with that, I finally get my first job there at last.

We were told we were going to Bintan for a shoot, but when we arrived at the Tanjung Pinang jetty, I realised it was a part of Bintan that I’ve never seen before. A totally new and very different world existed at this part of Bintan, a far cry from the picturesque resorts that one usually associates with Bintan.

This part of Bintan was populated and rural and one could see from the surroundings that this wasn’t a very prosperous part of town. I would be told later that this particular area is where folks go for cheap sex, although I really didn’t see any women hanging around street corners as we made our way in a mini van that had a non working air-con.

Our first location was a very nice beach.

Beach shoot (pun not intended)

My phone camera don’t really do the beach justice, but the scenery is really nothing short of amazing. I doubt very much any of the main resorts in Bintan have such a nice beach front.

After that, we went to a few plantations as well as a few farm stay houses that had these interesting murals on its walls.

The scenery wasn’t half bad as well.

I actually had a blast doing this and I certainly wouldn’t mind doing more of such shoots in the future. But since I’m not really model material, I can only hope and pray. 😛
