Full Name: Kip Chanin
Age: 18. (15, but I don’t admit to that)
Eye Colour: Brown
Hair Colour: Dark brown
Characteristics: My mother is beautiful. Some people say I look like her. When I found out who my father was, I realized my eyes are like hisays the're tender. Not what a photographer needs.’re tender. Not what a photographer needs.
Dislikes: The paparazzi, celebrity, fame, notoriety and show business. Unfortunately, that’s my life.
Strengths: I learned how to not give up.
Weaknesses: My father, probably. I didn't know who he was and when I found out, it explained so much. Nothing I knew about my life was what I had believed.
Fears: That I'm more like my parents than I suspect. That their weaknesses could be mine, that I'll stumble and falll like they did.
Dreams: To be half as good a photographer as my mentor, Bay, and to be with Alex for the rest of my life.
Background: One day when my mother was 15, she went to a concert where Loy McLaren was performing. He was talented, self-indulgent, tormented and the ultimate bad boy. Of course my mother fell for him. My mother knows how to love. He really needed her. I'm the result.
She’d been pretending to be 18 for so long, it felt like the truth.
When the only way for 15 year old Kip Chanin to earn a living is as paparazzi, she can’t say no.
Kip’s first photo is of Alex Milne, the handsome and volatile young actor. That one photo changes both their lives.
