Hand job, anyone?

Comments 0

I got a call tonight from my agent that I booked a hand modeling job. (Hand modeling, you ask? Yeah…) I am already confirmed and the client is about to book my flight as it is shooting all week in San Francisco, with a call time of 7am tomorrow! I have a bit of concern, however, as my hands do not look quite as nice as they did at the casting last week due to a CrossFit workout over the weekend. So I text my agent a photo of my hands because, as I’ve learned in the past, it’s always better to be honest and on the same page with your representation than otherwise. And it was nice to hear my agent compliment my professionalism over the phone in that sense. Yet when she saw the photo, she felt it best to share it with the client so that I didn’t show up on set tomorrow and have it be an issue.

Unfortunately, the cuts on my hands were bad enough for the client to release me and book another model for the job. While this isn’t a pivotal job that will change my career forever, it was good money and it’s still a part of my career. I feel like an idiot for not better taking care of my hands, especially after a hand casting. I guess I just have trained myself over the years to forget about my castings after they happen to avoid disappointment if I don’t end up booking the job. But what I should do, is still be aware of the shoot dates in case I do book the job and be prepared for each perspective job.

I apologized to my agent for not taking care of my hands and promised her that I will take better care of them in the future. So if any of you see me working out without gloves, get on me!!!
