31 Mar Wk 2 Feature: Fourth Dimension Editorial w/ Meggy Sue
Interview by: Tiffany Snyder, Fourth Dimension Photography
What are your thoughts on Modeling?
I was nervous and a bit intimidated by all the other models that the photographer has worked with. But I also was excited because it was something I’ve never really done before and I wanted to step out of my comfort zone.
How did you decide on Fourth Dimension as your first photographer?
Well she’s my best friend! So, naturally, I wanted her to be the one to pop my “modeling cherry”.
How did you decide to pursue Modeling?
I decided on modeling after going through a rough break up. It sounds cliché but after all the ugly crying I did, I wanted to feel pretty again. Being that I’m a shy and awkward person, I wanted to do something that was out of character for me, which happened to be getting scantily clad in front of my best friend for her camera in the middle of winter in an old building.
Would you say you do Modeling for fun, self-empowerment, or for pay?
Hey, if I can do both, that’d be awesome! I went into this photo shoot with the idea of it being just for me, just for the fun of it. I was stepping out of my comfort zone because I wanted to boost my confidence. So I was pretty shy when the photographer asked me afterwards what I wanted to do with the photos, as far as posting them on Facebook or publishing them.. I was hesitant to post them online for all my friends to see, so we decided to try and publish them. I figured if I could get a magazines approval, then I’d be confident enough to share them with my close friends and everyone else. Being that it was my first time modeling, I wasn’t expecting to get published none the less paid. So it’s definitely a bonus for me if that happens!
So far, have you had any experience with any creepers or overly obsessive fans?
I imagine as I model more and build a name for myself, I’ll have a few. But what’s a fan base without a little strange?
What was your favorite part of your first photoshoot?
My favorite part of the whole shoot was exploring the building and trying to strike a fierce pose like the professional models do ( I really need to start stretching more)
Do you think you’ll continue to do Modeling in the future?
Over the years, I have watched my best friend grow her hobby into a business and now she gets to watch/ document my growth as a model and a more confident, bad ass women. Since the photo shoot, we have been brain storming on how to make the next one better and more interesting. I’m thinking steam punk next! The possibilities are endless. Fourth Dimension Photo has big ideas for me.
