We were looking for a nude model for a magazine shoot and were growing tired of getting all the same faces (and bodies) from the agency. We needed something fresh. That’s why we went to Athens to look for some fresh blood.
When we saw Angie Black, we knew immediately that it was going to be her. Only problem, of course, is how we get a regular girl convinced to do nude modeling.
We were discussing how we were going to do it. We agreed that we were not just gonna go up to her and ask directly, that we would have to ‘ease’ into it somehow. “I have an idea, let me handle this” I said.
“Excuse me mam. Yes you. Excuse me. Hello.”
The girl looked back at us. “I’m Tony and this is Andy – do you mind if we ask you a few questions?”. She looked back at us. “I guess, what would you like to ask?”
“We’re … talent scouts, would you mind if we take a picture of you?”
She shrugged her shoulders. “Sure, why not”.
Wow, this was indeed the fresh new face that we needed. “May I know your name?” I asked as politely as I could. “Angie Black” she replied. I continued. “As you already know, my name is Tony. Angie, what do you do for a living, if you don’t mind me asking?” I asked.
“I am studying to be a veterinarian.” Now she apparently felt it was her turn to ask the questions. “So what kind of talent are you looking for”.
“Models” Andy blurted out. I was going to wait with saying that, but I guess we might as well tell her sooner or later. I continued in Andy’s direction “Yes, we’re working for a large fashion magazine and we are looking for beautiful … faces … such as yours”. She just looked back, didn’t say anything. Most girls would say ‘Wow, thanks’ or ‘Me, a model, really?’ but not her. I guess she knows exactly how good looking she is.
“Would you consider modeling for the magazine, maybe?” I finally asked. “It’s well paid.” I concluded. "I’m not interested” she just said.
“Uhm, but your salary is $100 for just a few hours of work if you come with us today. Just normal modeling shots.” I explained. She hesitated. She didn’t realize before now that we were talking that kind of money. She was thinking about it. I tried to close the deal by saying “$150 then, it’s no more than two hours work. Come on!”. She smiled. “Now?” she asked. BINGO! She was in. We led her to our car and drove to the shooting site.
“But no nudity” she then said, just before getting into the car. “No no of course not” I lied. “Just get in”.
She stopped. “And I want payment in advance” she said and held out her hand. “Sure, you’ll get $50 now and $100 more when we arrive, no problem” I said and smacked a $50 into her hand. Satisfied, she went into the car.
