I want to preface this video.
I woke up in Bogota thinking I would film a segment for Vagabondish.com titled, “A Day In the Life Of Digital Nomad.” But my day ended up just a tad unusual:
Clay and I were used as shirtless models in a photo shoot with a Colombian model.
As I cooked a plantain for breakfast, I noticed some photographers in the courtyard of my hostel. When I walked outside to investigate, I spotted a beautiful model doing her makeup. “OK, I thought. This might be interesting.”
I had no idea that Hostel Alegria in Bogota is often used for photo shoots and filming of telenovelas. The unique architecture of the house make it a perfect location for producers on a budget.
Clay and I watched the shoot for awhile and befriended the camera man. He really liked Clay. Like a lot. We excused ourselves to go get some lunch.
When we returned, the camera guy had now moved the action inside to a dimly lit stairwell and the model had lost some clothing. The camera man was excited to see us back. “I need you,” he said.
It didn’t take him long to convince us to get shirtless and pose with the model. “Why not?”
Enjoy the video.
