The new campaign for Mandalay Bay is featured on Mandalay Bay’s website.
Shooting at the actual hotel, I was there for a total of 2 out of 4 production days. The grueling call time of 4am was made up by the actual shoot ending before 9:30am — both days. Leaving me to play in Vegas for the rest of the afternoon and evening. I spent most of the time playing my favorite game, craps, winning a total o f $280 and also walking around exploring all the eye candy Vegas has to offer.
Modeling jobs aren’t always fun, it’s actual work. However, not for Vegas casino’s. The aliveness and energy of Vegas makes you more then happy to be apart of it — taking any sense of the word “work” out of it.
Not only a great location, what a wonderful crew I found myself to be working with. To my surprise, the photographer was an old friend and the person whom started my career, Dewey Nicks. Finding my sister when we were the young age of 13 years old, we worked together on many jobs through the years. Eventually loosing touch as my sister, Amanda, and I traveled the world, all the while Dewey has always been world renowned and in high demand — our paths didn’t cross for almost 10 years. What fortune I found myself in having the opportunity to work with such a talent again.
I loved doing this job — great models who were fun & sweet, great crew (makeup, wardrobe, production) with so much talent and beautiful personalities, and of course, great luck with a fantastic photographer who is a true artist. Thanks Mandalay!
