a story of my Muse

Once upon a time ,mmmm lets not go there ,

the story is about my Muse ,

  I have mentioned her  many times and have worked with   for maybe Five  years and over a 100 photo shoots ,
she is I think some what organized and does plan a head , so a few weeks back she emailed me about she had got engaged , well awesome I thought ,
had not meet Chris but she talks about him whenever she is here ,so I had a idea of what he was like  a planer and organizer as well ,
Lianda  ask if I would create some old time looking prints of there engagement and wedding web site  ,
they wanted a big dress look with a vintage chair  and he would have a tux  ,top hat  and cane ,

then Lianda wanted a  sort of vintage look in a  vintage style wedding dress she got just for this shoot ,not the dress she will wear for her wedding ,
well between them they planed all the clothes and props and the date and time for the shoot at my studio ,,

big day ,
they arrive bring in all the clothes and stuff  the vintage chai…

Shoe Fetish update

I had some time to get back on the shoe fetish series.
This is becoming a very interesting concept; talking to the models, there is more to this than I'd imagined. So much more to come.

when a model becomes a broken doll

This is part of my model concepts:

Do we look at a model and just see just what is on the out side? So, when they fall and break, are they just an empty shell? Do they become a broken doll just to be thrown away?

Talking with other Photographers and Wardrobe Stylist, we seem to have a preconceived idea of what models should be like and we label them.



Like, a model with more curves is Glamor.
If they are tall, skinny, long legs with small tits, well, they are Fashion.
And then the one who is too small, too young, well, she is a Wannabe - never will be a model.


So here are three examples of this.
Created by some amazing models that I work with who understood the concept and gave their time for this.



this was another idea  two models for the price of one ,just unzip and you have another model

do we put a model on a shelf, just to look at  like another doll,

Random thoughts on a year gone by

These are just some of my thoughts at random on the past year of 2010.

Never thought I would miss working with a model  that much.
Well, I do miss the creativeness of my Muse, who I have worked for over the past 4 years, so I do believe in magic - her magic .
How in the world can some one have magic? Well, I guess we then have to call it the X factor.

Althoough I work with many models many times and they are just great, but the x factor is not there yet -Some are close. It's just something special you just know when it is there.. so look up the word "Muse" then you will understand.

I have made many new friends this past year, and miss many that have moved on. The studio just seems to get smaller and smaller. Maybe I just have too much stuff.
I do have too much stuff, so this year, I have to thin it down. Also need to stop working so much of an evening  editing. I think because my work station is next to my online computer, I watch a movie on line or just music videos, an…

love new creative concepts

What to do... mmm... what to do...
Here we have a new product to shoot. A tad on the large side and somewhat unusual. A real Coffin Couch.
Maybe not for some, but is just awesome none the less.

Client said he would  leave it to me and I had a few models that I thought would be great for this and they all just loved it.



I think Elise wanted to take it home after the shoot.
Here are some of the different ideas I had: 






A New Year so testing out Ideas

seems like clients are getting busy  this year, so I'm testing some ideas with model Romina. She is one of my all time favorite models.
Never realized it's been five years working with her. She is smart and just a great model, with sense of humor and a laugh you won't forget.



Just had a great photo shoot with her, and her mother worked as my assistance. You could not ask for a better team.
