Local stock photo model, John Smith (35) has no idea why the hell he is currently wearing business attire and pretending to make a mobile phone call on top of a surfboard in the middle of the ocean.
Speaking to the Betoota Advocate today, he says he’s been asked to do some really weird things over the course of his career as a generic white male, but this is by far the weirdest.
“I have literally no idea what this photo could possibly be used for” he said.
“Like, maybe a mental health pamphlet? Maybe. That’s really pushing it,”
“It’s too bizarre to be funny and it’s just obscure to really be related to any industry. I am lost for words,”
With the shoot expected to take up to two hours, with around eight different variations of this particular setting, John says his career as a model looks like it will be a short-lived one.
“Ten years I’ve spent in the gym, only to be made to look like an idiot for random online clients,”
“This photo will never be used for anything.”
