Thanks Thomas. All sounds very correct and what I've been telling myself. Now its a matter of implimenting theory into reality.

I'm a nervous, shy person by nature. Not good at small talk... turns to nervous chatter or head nodding.

Not so interesting for TV. lol.

yeah, real shy. :-)


I was alone when I took that!! LOL. Seriously everyone who meets me after seeing my photos is baffled. "Wow, you look so different" "wow, not what I expected" etc!

That's actually the front of my portfolio. My friends said I should wear that shirt too... I mentioned that's major lame and they exlaimed "It's reality TV!!!"

Point taken. I think I'm gunna do it.

Tomorrow at 3. Shannon you gunna be there?

yea... it would be really cool if at least one of us make it! If not perhaps we shall arrange a DPC boycot!

I should go in and be like "listen, me and my buds got a whole GANG of photographers that will watch us, who might NEVER even TURN ON VH1 otherwise. So you better pick one of us if you know what's best for you"
07/11/2007 08:49:31 PM · #105
it would be awesome if every photographer that was chosen is a DPC member!
07/11/2007 08:49:57 PM · #106
I never watch VH-1 so someone PLEASE post the date and time for the first show. This is one I do not want to miss!
07/11/2007 09:02:28 PM · #107
this is so deeply cool. fingers crossed for all!

Damn, that sucks. I was hoping to meet one of my Llama teamates. Break a leg or two tomorrow! If you can, please fill us in Thursday night about what they ask you, etc. My call time is 3:15pm Friday. I have to do a self-portrait tonight, which is something I've never done besides my goofy profile pic (which I actually sent them in the first email, lol). I guess they have a sense of humor.

Let me how it goes guys. One of the producers is a friend of a friend. I don't know if i can actually help things out but it's worth a shot.
07/12/2007 04:43:37 AM · #113
Good luck to you all - itching to find out what the outcome is.

Damn, my evil plan foiled again! You're a rather smart cookie! Demise or not, go in there and knock their socks off. Just give 'em that Monica charm.

Adam, are you going for it too since you're in LA and do some really nice portrait work?

Shannon, good luck getting your days switched. Hope to see you there on Friday.

So anyways, I was up late last night shooting a S/P to turn in to them. Man, I hate photos of my &$%#@! fat face! Had to have something though, and couldn't bring myself to do a glam-type head-shot. Don't laugh too hard now...

great shot, marc!
07/12/2007 06:15:58 PM · #116
i wonder how monica's audition is going :)
07/12/2007 11:01:14 PM · #117
soooo! lol.

It was pretty basic guys. I should have predicted it all but I hate the unknown and was driving myself mad with the possibilities. Will it be a pannel of judges? Will it be a group audition? Will there be a huge line?

OK... so you go upstairs to the suite, fill out this form, other people will be in there. Then the assistant comes and grabs people one by one. You go down to this little room, she takes a photo of you... And then you meet this guy who takes a glance at your port, and then you sit in a chair and get interviewed with the predictable lame questions like "tell us about yourself" "what would you bring to the show" and then the last "ok here is your last chance to give reasons why we'd want you on the show, GO!"

He wants over the top, energy, etc. I don't think I delivered but oh well.

I did... eh ok. I didn't freeze up but I did nervous babble. And I forgot the very simple instructions he gave at the begining, namely repeat the question in your answer.

Other than that who knows!
07/12/2007 11:13:20 PM · #118
Way to go, Monica! I'm sure you did great. They expect some nervousness from everyone. I was lucky that I got to tape my answers to the questions, that way when I babbled I could delete and shoot again. :)

Good luck to ya!

Told ya it was a "Job" interview type situation.

Nice going Monica. Break a femer.
07/12/2007 11:58:19 PM · #120
Monica, how many were there while you were there today?
07/13/2007 12:02:13 AM · #121
Good luck to all!! This is very cool!! Can't wait to see the outcome!!

at any given time 6 or 7. But more would come in as more came out... and think they've been doing this for a couple weeks now.

Not good odds that's for sure!
