Episode #7 of The Shot airs tonight on VH1

Episode #7 of VH1's reality TV series "The Shot" airs tonight at 10pm (eastern/pacific) on VH1. "The Shot" your typical reality TV show, but has a ...focus on photography: Ten aspiring photographers want to make the big time as they compete with each other for the grand prize of this reality TV show, which includes money ($100,000 from Vaseline), and work with Victoria Secret and Marie Claire.

In episode #7, four photographers are left and they have to work as paparazzi at a red carpet event, something that frustrates some of the photographers who are appalled and put off by papparazzo type work. Later in the episode they take shots of music sensation Joss Stone. Featured in this episode was paparazzi photographer David Aguillera. This is a spoiler free summary, I won't be revealing who is voted out at the end of the episode.

This show combines photography and reality-style drama. Don't expect this to be a photography documentary :) For that, be sure to check our photography documentaries on DVD post.

The new episode airs at 10pm tonight on VH1, and repeats throughout the week at different time slots on VH1. If you missed any previous episodes, or if you want to start watching the series from the start, each episode is offered on Amazon Unbox for $2 each. With Amazon Unbox you can direct your "purchases" to your broadband-connected TiVo.
