Ahhhhhh Yes! These are the shoots that people associate with hand models. Whenever someone finds out what I do for a living, the first thing they ask (after the George Costanza question) is do I do mostly jewelry ads. There are a lot of jewelry ads, yes, most definetly…. but more often than not, I’m working with food… So I do really enjoy these glittery days where there are men with guns making sure I don’t “RUN! RUN!!” (as my friend Melissa texted me to do when I told her I was wearing a 30 million dollar ring on my finger.)
This was one of those glittery days for Glass Magazine. There were four guys with guns on this set. I didn’t run away
Our super dooper glasses make us look like bug people! We say we have to wear these glasses because of the intense lighting but really it is so you can’t tell we are sleeping while sitting up at 4am. Jimmy Furino and I had a blast on our all night shoot in the middle of nowhere Florida. We shot from 10pm to 5am!!
My friend Nate Shelkey wrote a song for me! giggle! Love it! He is a freakin’ awesome and hysterical guy and a great musician too. You probably saw him pantless during the Superbowl in the Dockers “I Wear No Pants” commercial… or dressed up as a giant mouse in commercials for D-Con mouse traps. Nate pretty much rocks all around and you can check him out online here!
Drum Roll Please… Here is the Hand Model Song by Nate Shelkey!
Check out Ashly Covington on Hamilton Beach’s new homepage! Ashly’s hands can be seen on the product packaging for almost every thing that Hamilton Beach makes. Very fitting that most of her hand was cropped out for this shot starring her FACE! So for everyone who asks ‘when is more than just a hand gonna be seen?’
There are so many steps to each advertisement out there.. From the concept to the creation, by the time I get to the set, many months of research, development and testing have already gone on.
I was booked for day #2 of a shoot for Samsung. day #1 was the face gal. They shot with me for a few hours holding the camera up to my face with my hair slicked back and in a few different tops. After they got several shots the client liked they combined the face gals pic with mine and that got them to the shot they had visualized. 🙂
