I was modelling for the project ” Awareness in Manhattan” last year. This project is to araise people’s awareness of breast cancer. Which I think I already achieve on those two days shooting topless in Manhattan in LATEX dress, many people came to ask my crew what’s it for? And they gave us very much appreciation in return. (That’s why I love New York! Also it was during the presidential election period, the whole city is alive and people were very exciting.) The temperature has already drop during these two days shoot, we were lucky to catch come sunshine to do the outdoor shoot. Thanks to my professional crew menbers, the result is very goood. This project will be featured in the Playboy magazine March 2009(US. edition), then later this year you can see those photos in many exhibitions for charity cause.

You must be curious about the backstage too! Yes! Backstage is the most interesting part of modelling for me, I love to meet people in the same industry. This time I was very lucky to work with the best team. Includes project manager Yael Sapir, she is the leader of our team. She looks serious in these two photos because she is controlling the environment. As you can imagine a outdoor edgy shoot would attract so many people, it can casue traffic jam! But underneath her professional attitude she is very very funny, she is full of energy, always make us relax. I can’t wait to work with her again and again!



MUA is model’s best friend! My make up is done by Lancome senior make up artist Andrew Sotomayor. He is not only professional, has magic hands. This is a special project, not typical fashion or beauty shoot. He really made the makeup match my dress well. We spent so much good time doing the makeup, he is my MUA, my bodygard(cause he’s tall) and almost my babysitter :p I remenber one after he rush out when we had a break for hot drink, came back with two self-heating bags for me…..I am really touched! Thank you again Andrew! Evryone is very concerned about the low temperature. They are really nice people!

We were so happy to finish the shoot!

There are two people not in the backstage photos because they are behind the viewfinder. Photographic artist Thomas Hodges and his assistant. Thomas is an art photographerhttp://www.photoconception.com/, who won many major photographic awards such as: International photography award,International color award and Black and white spider awards. He is a real gentleman. Always very polite, efficient in work and full of charm. Amazingly he control the outdoor light without any reflector and artificial light source. All of us were very surprised of the way he took photos. I guess that’s how master would be.
