Taylea Keenan has fulfilled her dream of appearing in a professional photoshoot, and she's looking for girls who might like to join her next time.
Taylea, 20, won Ralph Magazine's "Who Should Ralph Shoot?" competition, and appears in a two-page spread in the current issue, dated March.
The Broken Hill local flew to Sydney for the shoot, and said it had been a great experience. "It was really fun. I was a bit nervous at first but I got a chance to talk with the photographer before we started and that made me feel really comfortable," she said. "We got along well. I felt really relaxed." While four photos were published, Tay said the shoot lasted six hours, and she would be getting a disk with all the day's photos to build up her portfolio. Taylea said the photographer was interested in an idea of hers to be photographed in the Broken Hill landscape. "He was really keen. He said if I can get five girls together he would be able to come out," she said. "So if any girls are out there who'd like to do it and aren't too shy, they should give me a call. "It'd be excellent, and I think it could make Broken Hill look really good." Taylea encouraged anyone wanting to get involved to contact her on 0402 422 553.
