I accidentally chanced on the following fragment at the end of a photog’s e-mail to me. Regrettably, it isn’t my agent/agency, who opt for matter-of-fact phonecalls all around--otherwise, i could have used it to get at least a couple of hours worth of free pleading and bargaining from my mom. From the florid promises in the obsequious message below, they might as well be booking geishas.
