DinoRay 's Thoughts:

Okay, this picture isn’t what it looks like….nevermind…it’s EXACTLY what it looks like.

I had recently interviewed Rain from that movie, “Ninja Assassin” and it just so happened that we were doing a ninja-esque photoshoot for Academy of Art University’s One Eighty Magazine (BTW- I’m editor at large of the mag…and I’m an instructor there) – but it didn’t involve me. It was a lot more high-brow and conceptual than what I did.

Anyways, afterward, we had some time and Daryn Labier, the photographer, busted out a sword (which the director of the photo shoot refused to use) and I just wrapped my scarf around my face and embodied the role of the most dapper ninja ever known to man. Daryn snapped some AWESOME frames of me. This is just one of many.

I think I may have a new career as a ninja/model.

Check out my interview with Rain at my blog: www.thefinerdandy.com

Considering this photoshoot was so spontaneous, it turned out amazing! If you were attacked by a ninja, you'd certainly want him to be as sharply dressed as you and go down in style!
