10 things from FIRST you missed but shouldn't…

That was really the whole point of FIRST, a chance to show what we in Jamaica should already know, that apart from picking coconuts and murdering each other there remains some other stuff worth talking about and some pretty weird stuff.

Once in print and in-between online there’s a few things you may have missed that we think you ought to check out:

Fit birds. We’re superficial and so are you dear readers. Easily the most popular thing to do on this site is admire the beauty of Jamaican women: beginning back in 2008 with Miss Jamaica Yendi Phillips.

FIRST is looking for you fit birds

You may have noticed – well, you really should have noticed – that beautiful Jamaican women have been a staple of FIRST, from when we started as a print magazine, right up to today: Candice McCalla X Lime Cay.

The way it usually works is that women, who often are not full-time models, contact us directly. Or every now and again, we find them ourselves.

We’re not a model agency and we don’t have a dodgy TV show. We’re not even seedy model talent scouts. We just take photographs.

Why you’d want you to be photographed is really your business. Our business, however, is solely to ensure you and the photograph look good, good enough to be published here.

As for your modeling career, should you become one of the lucky few; well, that’ll be down to the whim of some dude in too-tight pants…not us.



Women of Jamaica: please drop the tattoo thing

“Yes, just urn your head away from the camera and cover your…” Female tattooing is really starting to get FIRST down. Sadly the human eye, no matter how attractive the subject, still can’t work as well as Photoshop.

It baffles us why beautiful, elegant and frequently intelligent women would want to ink themselves up; and always by that same guy who must have learned his trade at Tower Street Correctional Centre.

Ladies, just remember, you’re not livestock.
