It seems the camera has always been a friend to Lynsey Noel: first, as a professional model, and now as a professional photographer.
You may recognize this week’s ec and dc cover model from past modeling work, or from her time as a member of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers’ Diamond City dance team. Most recently, you may have seen her on location throughout the 570 with local professional models as they’ve been shooting the Girls of NEPA calendar.
We recently caught up with Noel to chat about life on the other side of the camera, and her latest project, which will be released on Friday, Nov. 11, at a party at Breakers in Mohegan Sun. Creating a calendar that highlights the beauty of the women in our area, as well as the beauty of the region, has been a fun and fulfilling project for Noel. Not only will she showcase local models, a portion of the proceeds from calendar sales will benefit local charities.
“All of the models are very well known and some of them have done some really cool work,” Noel said. That cool work includes one model who appeared on “Rock of Love” with Brett Michaels, another who appeared in Playboy magazine, and others who have appeared in Maxim and in national advertising campaigns for companies such as Nike.
Most of the calendar was shot in Northeastern Pennsylvania, with help from local sponsors. You’ll see 14 different models at various sites in the 570, from a fire hall to the inside of a limousine. The only exception was their beach shoot in the Hamptons.
We could tell you more about what’s inside, but we won’t spoil the fun of letting you see for yourself at the Girls of NEPA calendar release party, where you can meet Noel and all of the models featured in the calendar.
Join Noel and the Girls of NEPA calendar models at Breakers at Mohegan Sun on Friday, Nov. 11, from 7 to 9 p.m. for a special Electric City and Diamond City Night Out. Calendars are $10 and will be available for purchase. To learn more about Noel, visit her website at lynseynoelphotography.com.
