For 12 years, Henrietta Leung drew a $200,000 annual salary at HSBC and Credit Suisse. Laid off during the recession, she's currently exploring a new career path: exposing herself in softly lit photographs. She enjoys it greatly.

Freed from investment banking's grueling 16-hour work days, the 39-year-old Henrietta reconnected with her creative side. After posing for "around 30" "very edgy" photo shoots (only five of which paid), she realized that building her body and showing it off in photographs is her true calling. There are, however, some lines she will not cross: "Though I have been offered adult photo shoots, that's not for me." Showing nipples is mere child's play. [Sun via Dealbreaker]
