“IF YOU”RE NOT THE MODEL, BE THE PHOTOGRAPHER” IRL – From The Tens – “Shots from the 47″

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

My most incoherent headline yet.

This was the question back in 2011.

And this was the answer.

Comes now The Tens with his take on photographer-model duality:

“IF YOU”RE NOT THE MODEL, BE THE PHOTOGRAPHER” – A Mystery Solved – Photographer in Ad Actually a Model

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

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.

Hurray!

Keep up the good work, Erin Williams.

Ah, memories:

“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.*

*Uh yes, she’s particularly not ugly, she’s a cutie. And yes, IRL, she’s a model, if she wasn’t before she certainly is now. Isn’t it ironic, don’tcha think?

Are these Target shoe models** too beautiful to be photographers?

Apparently.

The Stop Motion Dinosaurs of the Presidio – Jurassic Park Models Used to Decorate LucasFilm’s Letterman Digital Arts Center

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

As you’re walking in the Presidio along Chestnut Street West (or whatever they call it these days) through the Letterman Digital Arts Center, you can look up and see this view through the windows of a walkway connecting buildings.

[Oh, these models are called maquettes, and the one in the middle is a spaceship of some type - see comments]

Can you ID the species? Sure you can…

The Vanishing Car Show Babes of the San Francisco International Auto Show

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Just as San Francisco has experienced the demise of construction workers, it’s also lost its car show model babes. Things just aren’t what they used to be at the San Francisco International Auto Show, for whatever reason.

Maybe in Europe or Asia they still have something like the Bundy Bounce, but you’re not going to find anything like that at the big family-oriented car show in San Francisco, longstanding stereotypes of car shows notwithstanding. FYI.

Here’s what’s left of that bygone era.

The continuously-improving Kaizen-ettes (改善ettes - Jordan, Marisa and Laura) sing the praises of this 2010 Toyota Prius:

Chatting about a huge Dodge pick-em-up:

Talking to no one at all about the Chrysler 300 sedan:

That’s it.

Also, no beefcake (beefcake!). Maybe they had something like that ten years ago, but not anymore.

I think the South Koreans are arriving a little late at the boaty chromed-up car party, but anyway, here’s your giant 2010 Hyundai Equus – ask about their bullet-proof model:
