The Shot

Debuting on Sunday is THE SHOT, a new VH1 reality show from the makers of America’s Next Top Model. This time, the focus is on the photographers! Great timing for my interests. I know they’ll wind up spending more time focused on the cattiness between the contestants, but it could be of interest to those with an interest in photography. We’ll see.

I can’t find a page for it on VH1’s web site, so I can only link to this at the moment:

Time Warner Cable Media Sales :: VH1 – The Shot

In this highly anticipated series, VH1 is giving amateur photographers the chance to live out their dreams and prove they have the sharp eye, raw talent and sheer artistic genius to make it in the world of high end photography for the chance to walk away with the ultimate prize – no matter what lens you’re looking through. In the end, one lucky photographer will walk away with $100,000, an editorial spread in Marie Claire magazine, and a national ad campaign for Victoria’s Secret. Each week, contestants’ expert eyes are challenged with photo shoots ranging from commercial and editorial to wildlife and fashion.

Wait, here’s VH1’s page. . . There’s galleries of the photographers often looking like deer in the headlights holding their Nikons and Canons.
