The story of Jodie going model

I thought I'd share with you some sort of time line of what I've been doing and how I've developed as a model. However, as I took a look at my first photoshoot I realized it'd be waaaay too difficult to just pic one picture here an another there for just one post. Therefore, I'm gonna do this in several posts. So, here begins the story of J. You can find all these posts later in tags by the name of "the story".

Aaanyway, here are some pics from my first photoshoot ever. Well, before this I'd had my high school graduation shoot and my "prom" shoot before that. The graduation picture is especially pretty nice - it was even put on display on the window of the shop. That was a bit of a highlight of my life at that point. ;D Hehee.

But now I'm gonna share with you the aforementioned First Photoshoot of Jodie. When Jodie started to go all model. :D The shoot was with markus Lehto in my flat.

Where did the idea of shooting together come from? There's this thing called irc-galleria... x) I had pictures there, so did Markus. I'm not sure who asked who to do something together. In my version it was him asking me to model for him, but he's saying it was me asking to shoot with him. :D So, who knows. Good that we did!

I was of course super nervous. I 'd met Markus for a coffee beforehand though. It was good at the time, cos I knew nothing about the whole scene. Now I prefer to keep it professional and skip all nonsense such as going to have a coffee with photographers. ;D

 I do look a little shy and nervous. It's funny though, that even now very often in the first pictures of the shoot I look exactly the same. x) The little shy Jodie. Aaaw.

Daymn, I so miss those trousers. I still got them, they're just so worn out that I don't feel like wearing them anywhere i public. xD Also I so miss that green wall! It was the biggest wall of the apartment and really nice light forrest green. Not lime, not light green, nope. Nice shade of green that changed from yeallowish to olive-ish as the sun moved through my flat.

Aaaand after this shoot I think we arranged to ahoot again pretty soon.. :) This was November 2006. I was 22. Sigh.

Happy to be where I am now, though! ^^

Getting painted..

I just realized that I haven't said a word about Steve Gatlin's last visit to Finland (remember Steve? He's the guy behind this music video I posted earlier). He was here on early December and brought with him a live painter, or The performance painter Neal Ray Barbosa (see links at the end of this post!). I was lucky enough to invite two of my dearest friends with me to be painted by him on stage while Rebound was playing! Can it get any more awesome?! :D

I guess I haven't posteda bout this earlier, cos I've been sort of waiting to get some "real" pictures of the show and what happened on stage. Now I just feel like, whatever, Neal deserves his post. :D Even with a "crappy" pic taken by me by myself at home with my crappy camera and dim lights.

Me and my girls were super nervous and excited about hopping on stage with the band (it was an event of total of 3 bands). However, when we got there, at least I lost all the nervousness and just felt great! :D We were dancing up there and just jamming to the music - while Neal was painting t-shirts that we were wearing. It was simply fun! :D

I'm sooooo happy and feel soooo grateful I've had the opportunity to meet with these people from the sunny California.. that's where I'd rather be. So cos I just now can't be in California, it's just perfect they're bringing the California to me. :D And ofcourse it was super rad to hang out with the guys from Rebound after their show;D!

But hey, here's the pic that could be better. :D Notice me standing in all fashion bloggerish kinda way.. x)

Here's Neal's blog. Here Facebook and here webpage. I didn't know which to add, so here are them all. :D

And here my friend's shirt. :)
