My most incoherent headline yet.
And this was the answer.
Comes now The Tens with his take on photographer-model duality:

O.K., so skip down below to see the ad from Target / Converse Shoes that caused a stir a while back. You know, over the whole “IF YOU”RE NOT THE MODEL, BE THE PHOTOGRAPHER” thing.
So I was thinking the photographer gal shown might actually have been a photographer who became a model for the first time because somebody took a photo of her OTJ photographing models.
And then I just saw this link here from Erin Williams talking about “the ad that I shot for Converse,” so I thought, yeah, she is a photographer IRL:
“My mom told me about this blog post that someone saw online in regards to the ad that I shot for Converse for Target. The tagline in the ad is “If you can’t be the model, be the photographer”. I guess not everyone liked the line… What do you think?”
But then one more click to one of the galleries on her website reveals she’s a model model:
(Because, of course, “the ad that I shot for Converse” can mean different things depending on whether you’re a model or a photographer.)
So, as stated, mystery solved.
Keep up the good work, Erin Williams.
“Maybe you can look at this new ad from Target and just lol.
But not Steve Meyer Photography, oh no:
“i just saw this ad on the back of a magazine. i feel so offended i need to take another deep breath before i start ranting. the tag line is “If you’re not the model, be the photographer.”
And Tzulin is not impressed, not at all:
“I’m a girl and I was like…what! Converse, my favorite brand, is saying … If you can’t be a model…then be the photographer, those who can’t do..teach… so offended !“
But You Make The Call.*
