Crunk Girl of the Month
One of my many resolutions for my photography this year included pursuing more project-based shooting. I’ve got a whole list of different concepts and ideas that I’m in the process of getting models and locations put together to shoot for, but in the meantime, I’m starting to revisit a project idea I had a few years ago.
My good buddy, DJ Real Juicy, of White Folks Get Crunk, has been having a wonderful run of gigs and publicity over the past couple of years. All the while, I’ve been right there beside him snapping shots for my friend. Not only is it a great way to spend my time practicing some night life shooting, but I usually can pass my card on to a couple of potential models and even clients that might be out at the club.
In light of all of this good success, I am finally taking another stab at a segment for his website called the Crunk Girl of the Month. Based upon the format that College Humor uses for their Cute College Girl of the Day segment, I will be choosing a model for each month of the year and doing a glamour shoot with them featuring some of the merchandise that WFGC has to offer. The photos will then be posted on the WFGC site monthly alongside a set of random, sometimes funny, questions that each girl will answer.
At the end of the year, I’m hoping I can develop some sort of Crunk Girl calendar, much like the Hooters calendar, to generate some money and publicity for my friend and my business as well. We have already shot Miss February and I’m working on the next few months of girls. I have the list set up through June so if anyone is interested in being a Crunk Girl, please feel free to let me know!
