Jynx Fatsoon - #studiokitten

Jynx got her modelling career started not long after being adopted into the Tamale Studios family. While extremely cute and friendly, she has been known to be somewhat aloof during shoots. While you can reliably get great photos of her and she knows how to strut her stuff, sometimes she may be disinterested in the process and not reliably stay in shot. We therefore recommend that you not rely on her as the main talent. Can be paid in cuddles and scratches.

Jonesy fluffypants - #studiocat

The ever elusive studio cat is disinterested in the glamorous life of photography and production. He keeps an eye on proceedings from the comfort of his bedroom. Keep your fingers crossed that you do manage to catch a glimpse of him because he’s a majestic beast!
