Testing with Patrick Wolgar
The Blog of Andrew Clifton-brown
So I tested with a model, Patrick Wolgar. Pre shoot communications were great, and he’s a friendly guy. On the day of the shoot turned up ready to roll, and he’s a joy to shoot with. He didn’t really need any help posing and the session rolled along quite nicely and I was very pleased with the results.
We got chatting about our pasts. Turns out Patrick used to ride BMXs like myself and we knew a lot of the same people. Granted Patrick is 20 years younger than me, but some people in BMX are still doing the rounds, and some names just survive. We also talked about how busted up we are from crashes, etc. Patrick went on from BMX into Motorcross and got really broken then. I’ll see if I can get a catalouge of his injuries to add to this post at a later date.
Patrick I believe will become a great model. He has the mindset to listen to advice, clearly has his own vibe going on and is just such a cool guy. He isn’t nearly as serious as the images suggest, and I had a good laugh while working with him.
