On our way back to the hotel to prepare for the casting call, a helpful taxi driver took us around town and showed us all the old and abandoned factories and apartment complexes - all fantastic locations!!
Arranging a casting is always filled with fear and joy for what you have to face, and this casting had everything: Girls sent by their agents saying it is for a bathing suit session and I trying to say it must have been a misunderstanding and that it is a full nude session.
There were lots of young girls trying to act old and showing their fake IDs, which I turned away immediately. There were also mothers with children still hoping to make it in the model industry. There were also porn models thinking sucking on a finger will help on their application. But luckily some of the true beauties of Poland also stepped forward to surrender to my lens. Without revealing too much I have attached some samples to the right.
Now it is just after midnight and I am back after a great evening out in the Old Town with my new acquaintance Marek from Poland. We feasted on delicious Polish food in one of the classic restaurants facing one of the grand old squares in the old town. Afterward we went bar hopping and I was treated to probably the best beer I have ever tasted. Thanks for a great night out, Marek! And I welcome you to be my official model scout in Poland and we will meet again in the spring.
