Today was the day of photoshoots – yep, that’s what counts for work around here. I got to see Fran in action shooting both Gergo and Stu.
It’s fascinating to see Fran so intense and focused when usually he’s laid back and joking around. Also there was quite a difference between the way he works with both guys.
Stu is a very experienced model, but this is only the second time that Gergo has done a model photoshoot. As a fitness trainer, he’s used to having his photograph taken to illustrate the correct way to use the gym’s equipment. He summed it up by saying, “I only know how to be myself.”
But Fran has a way of easing people into being natural, which isn’t as simple as it sounds. If, like me, you don’t like having your picture taken, as soon as someone point a camera at me, the urge to do something funny to compensate is keen.
Stu, on the other hand, can get into character really quickly. That comes from experience and isn’t something he has always known how to do.
Both guys are body-confident, but that’s different from performing for the camera. I asked Gergo how he felt about doing the shoot, but his answer was ‘fine’ for most of it. He said trying to do a sexy shot lying on a sofá with his shirt off felt unnatural, but otherwise, ‘fine’.
The third photoshoot of the day was for my military charity www.felixund.org.uk They’re promoting a new running t-shirt so sent me out with shirts for the guys and Martinha.
And just to prove that this is a working trip, this was all the authors working hard this afternoon. It looks like a staged shot, but it’s not.
