After falling for the tennis world champion, a no-name photographer gets a job at the Wimbledon tournament and pretends to be a successful newspaper owner to win her heart.
In the age of the internet, I don’t see how passing himself off as a successful newspaper owner is credible. All she has to do is google his name and the name of the paper he says he owns to find out he’s an impostor. Which she would surely do if she has any interest in him. That’s SOP these days.
Further to dpg’s comments…
How does a no-name photographer fall in love with the tennis world champion? Surely for this to happen they’d have to be close enough for him to get to know her. OR has he in fact never met her and is infatuated with how she is portrayed in the media and her looks. If that’s the case, then his actions aren’t romantic. They’re just plain creepy. In this day and age, this is problematic!
FWIW: As an amateur photographer I am attracted to your premise. However, I suggest that you invert the situation. That is, he may be carrying a secret torch for her, but he’s too shy, too socially inadequate to approach her directly. However she notices and becomes interested in him via his online photography, his pictures of her in action. And candid photos in between.
And other subjects. You mentioned in one thread that he is agoraphobic, goes out at night. Well, I follow on Flickr two photographers who specialize in night photography. They do wonderful shots of the night life and scenes in the cities where they live. (Which is not easy to do–night photography is challenging.) Their photography has attracted an avid following. So that’s another way she could become interested in him. Her hobby is photography and she starts following him on Flickr or Instagram or Facebook. And he notices she responds to his photos with “likes” and “faves”. In this way you would be turning his liability in terms of his personality into an asset in terms of the kind of photography he does as a compensation.
And then either she reaches to him with a comment or email query or he dares to reach to her to thank her for appreciation of his photos.
One other thought: The shy-guy must compete for her attention and affection with a romantic rival who is everything he isn’t. And may be pushing for and on the verge of getting her to marry him.
The end of Act 2 “darkest hour” could be her agreeing to marry the rival. And she asks the shy guy photographer to shoot their wedding.
Now what will he do? What must he do?
Whatever, I see a more interesting story with your protagonist in the role of a photographer than the other roles you have been auditioning him in other loglines.
