With summer in full swing (oddly enough, it was hard finding a sunny day to actually shoot outside), Janna and I took to the outdoors to show off some summer style. In our Q&A session this month, we talked about Facebook, fans, and Jack Daniels.Seichi Photography: What did you think of your Model of the Month title when I told you? Janna Lee: When I found out that I was Model of the Month, I was very excited! You’re a great photographer and I feel honored that you picked me for July. SP: Thank you. Did you tell anyone? JL: I feel like I told everyone! I put it up on my Facebook fan page and also up on the main page of my Model Mayhem. SP: So its been mentioned before that you work for 360 Promotions. What is your favorite thing to promote? JL: My favorite promotion I have done was for Jack Daniels. It’s a brand that everyone knows and loves, which make events like those a lot of fun. SP: Who makes it fun? The brand doing the promotion or the customers? JL: The Jack Daniels brand is a lot of fun because there is a lot of history that people aren’t usually aware of. The customers are very loyal to their drinks and Jack Daniels is a very popular brand. SP: What reasons did you get into modeling? JL: At first I got in into modeling when a friend of mine talked me into doing a photo shoot. After that I started booking my own shoots as a hobby. A few months later I started to get paid assignments and it has become a job that I love doing. SP: You meet a lot of people when doing promotions. Do you get lots of Facebook friend requests? JL: I have a lot of people ask to be my friend. When I see the name or picture of someone I know from the promo work I do, it makes me feel like I did a great job for them to remember me and look me up. SP: What’s something strange you’ve gotten from your fans on Facebook? JL: People have asked me out on dates. Its flattering, but I turn them down nicely. I am married. SP: Where do you do most of your promotional work? JL: Tacoma and Seattle. SP: Which city is better? JL: I wouldn’t say one location is better than the other. Seattle is great. They have bigger bars and lots of customers. Tacoma’s bars are a bit smaller, but they have a lot of regulars who enjoy spending time with you. Sometimes you’re doing 13 hour days with multiple promotions. Its nice to be able to connect with others.
