    new AW employee: Toby

    We welcome to the fold Toby, who's been working closely with Nico learning to shoot stills for the past few months! Toby has been doing shoots on her own lately, with Adora, and doing a brilliant job (as is Adora, of course). This allows Susie and Nico to go shoot a T3, while Toby and Adora go do two solo shoots.

    Tres efficient.

    Welcome Toby!

    (please refrain from asking staff members to pose as models - if they want to, you can be sure we'll make it happen!)

    Wow, I noticed that, maybe she's learning from Valerie.

    And a big welcome to Toby, another new staff member. Abby sure knows how to find beautiful staff members.

    Why should you get a pic? You will only ask her to get naked. Which is rude......

    Welcome, Toby. Try to keep your clothes on. Don't let these Horny guys talk you out of them.

    Ah.. after re-reading that I think I get it . Toby will do the solo-stills and Adora does the solo-vids. When will Toby's first set go up? Hmm.. neat team setup, but that leaves poor Penny all alone

    Welcome to Toby of course, feel free to post on the forums if you want. We'll be nice, honest . How did you first solo solo-still-shoot go? No horrible mishaps I trust ;-)

    In fact, I have been helping her out. Why, just last night i taught her what the word "denoument" means. Pronounciation is another story, but that's not the point just yet.

    Learning the pronounciation goes both ways, it's the same for us french speaking people when learning english. Once you get that part, it all seems easier afterward. Btw, I surely don't want to take you down on your french, because I think you're doing just fine, but the word should be written "dénouement", and comes from the verb "dénouer".

    Hey Toby, it's great to see ya out here as well... haven't really had much of a convo with you yet, but it's pleasing to see that you're happy with your work.

    Looks like I'm going to have to resign my post of AWHQ new kid after the arrival of you and Adora... the AWHQ family just gets bigger and bigger...

    Oh, and Abby, when is the Meet the team list getting updated? It's sooooo April 2006

    April 2006 was a very good time in my life, who doesn't like hanging on to the past?

    Welcome, Toby Hope you like it here as much as all of us do.

    That may be true, but does a native English speaker trying to speak French sound as sexy as English spoken with a French accent? Ooh, la la

    How about working with her, Margaret? Isn't it about time you did another redux?

    Abby, you didn't say anything about asking Models to pose again

    Very good Abby and you're right you have a good teacher. Maybe I could teach you if my english was better and there is also the skilful Luxman who can help.

    I just want to say that I LOVE Toby's avatar!
    Is she really that cheerful? Oh my!

    I also love Adora's avatar, but for a more nepharious reason. My bare shoulder fetish.

    Toby,

    Welcome aboard the Abby HQ team,

    May your time here be as enjoyable as it is for us.

    Is it just me or does Toby have a passing resemblance to a FORMER model on this site

    If it is, I hope it's beach-bleached as opposed to from a bottle. That genuine surf-girl look's sooo sexy IMO.

    But if it's a look why does it matter how it came to be ??

    Just adding my welcome to Toby.
    She looks a happy girl, and if that cheerfulness rubs off on the models that she photographs, we should all be in for a fun time.

    Oh, there is QUITE a difference, trust me. HUGE difference.
    I couldn't possibly explain in just a few words, but rest assured it is so much more than just hair colour.
    It's an initial indicator of personality, of soul, of a certain irresistible ethereal quality.

    Good memory you have ! I do recall that vague answer/comments weeks ago... interesting. They both look lovely (goes for most of the AW staff I think;-) and nice.

    would explain the separate teams, heh

    Hi Toby,

    Was reading your texts from the 'AW Today' archive page and since I'm a faaaaar far from anywhere near competent photographer I don't know much about it. So I was wondering; what does ' light going flat' mean? I can imagine light going away or being not enough/too much but 'flat' ??

    Fun pic for 23rd btw. This HUGE lens at that tiny distance, must be detailed close-up there

    Do you know when your first set will approx be published ?

    P.S. If you could be a superhero, who would you like to be?

    -Frans

    Hi Toby

    I was just looking at the What Happened Today photo and I was wondering - was that a glimpse of a tattoo we saw on the small of your back? I am always fascinated by tats (not always a huge fan mind you) and people's motivation in getting one. So I am wondering (and ignore the whole or parts of the question if you don't want to answer) - is that a tat, what is it of and why?

    Thanks - you are stunning and so are your photos (you shot Katy perfectly)!

    Hey Toby,

    It is indeed a treat to hear about your experiences behind the camera in the AW Today section. And bonus that we often get to see your very sexy self in shot. Seems like you're dealing well with the trials and tribulations of the job, especially on the technical side.

    So far I'm impressed with the shoots you've done and it will have helped that you got to work with some seriously spunky girls. That makes the effort worthwhile I'd say.

    Glad to see you're continuing the Verity "tradition" of visible butt crack Tobe.

    Has Abby tried to slip a quarter down there yet? I'd heard she did it frequently to Verity!

    Excellent, just another reason to love the backstage pics, you don't need new jeans

    Normally I "say no to crack", but in your case I'll make an exception.
    I liked it a lot!
