A sneak peek at the photo shoot with
O'NEAL Model Search Winner Brit Bliss!

We caught up with the lovely Brit Bliss, our 2013 O'Neal Model search winner again after her trip out to California for her photo shoot. Here is what she had to say.

How was your California experience?
It was nothing short of amazing. I had a blast, and it was so great to see all of the sites while the weather was perfect. It was sad to leave, and I already want to try to plan another trip to come back.

Who did you bring with you?
I brought my friend Sara. She had never been able to spend time in southern California, so she was the perfect candidate.

What did you do in your spare time?
We went to three different beaches, shopping in Hollywood, visited Madame Tussauds, and we went to see The Young Rapscallions perform.

Be honest- was there a major shopping spree involved?
Of course. I can't deny it one bit. I was somewhat worried my bags would go over the weight limit. It wouldn't have been the first time! Haha!

What was your favorite part of the trip?
The shoot was the best part. The photographer was so creative, and it was extremely easy to work with him. I'm dying to see the images outside of the camera.

Is there anything you would like to come back to California to see?
I want to see more beaches, and just walk the streets of LA for a day. Seeing the guys ride this time would be awesome, too.

How was your experience at O'Neal?
It was absolutely perfect. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience. Everyone was so friendly & eager to help me figure out where to go, what to do, things to see.. O'Neal has definitely been a major highlight in my career.

How did the photo shoot go?
The shoot was fabulous. I really didn't want to stop shooting, especially the fun stuff by the pool! I've always wanted to take these types of images, and now I have.

What was your favorite part of your shoot?
Definitely the pool stuff. It was so fun working with Marc. I think he might have a future in "special" modeling. ;)

Top three memories of the trip…
1) Drowning Marc
2) Seeing The Young Rapscallions perform
3) Experiencing the ocean

I just have to say how in awe I am over the hospitality that I experienced with O'Neal. It's definitely an experience I'm going to relish for a long time. I'm really grateful for having this opportunity, both from O'Neal and the friends, family, and fans that made this possible.
Thank you, everyone!!

We had some time to talk to Brit and get a little more info about her! We hope that this will tide you over until we can fly her out for her photo shoot!
