Friday, I had an incredible opportunity to pose for a photo shoot with Adidas Volleyball. It was quit an experience and definitely one I will never forget!
I have a history with volleyball and that’s a part of the reason that I was asked to pose for the shoot. I was practicing my poses beforehand but was not prepared for what actually happened!
All of the girls were asked to play games and act out scenarios for pictures. I haven’t really played in about 5 years so I was very nervous. We had to continuously repeat hits, sets, and spikes, over and over again until the photographer got the perfect angle. And we ended up playing for 4 hours.
The day still wasn’t over at that point, we had a little break then we went back to playing volleyball. After lunch, we had to take studio pictures. So each model had to pose in different outfits. This wasn’t bad but it’s extremely hard to act ‘natural’ when someone is screaming act natural while taking 100 different pictures. Not only was I photographed in volleyball gear but also workout clothes. The day totaled 11 hours.
It was such a cool experience but super exhausting! If anyone says models have easy job has never experienced it behind the scenes! I received very sore muscles, bruises in odd places, as well as some cool swag! What an experience!
