I am featured in this weeks OMG Magazine on pages 20-23. OMG is a local digital magazine with a very large following. They feature many different local artists and personalities.
OMG was my first formal interview and photo shoot. I was a lot more nervous for the shoot than the interview because posing makes me incredibly self-conscious, and I was fighting the worse cold I ever had. Ever since I can remember I was always the girl who would rather take the picture than be in it.
Two Fridays ago, my book launch was covered by a local newspaper. Although I was ecstatic to be in the paper (my first time), the photo was very unflattering. I didn’t dwell on it too much because it was a good article – Newsday Article. I crossed my fingers and toes that I would like OMG’s pictures and promised myself to practice not closing my eyes when the flash goes off.
My photographer was Mr. Stephen Doobal. Mr. Doobal was very professional, and he made me feel comfortable. I explained to him that I was a writer and not a model, so please have patience with me, and he did. Being self-conscious is to my detriment now. I am not Naomi Campbell and will never be. However, I am pleased with the entire article and hope to work with OMG again soon.
Thank you Mr. Stephen Doobal and Ms. Amelia Ramjarrie.
