Sneaky Streaker payed a vist to Orlando Perez Photography CA

Stopped by to see photographer Orlando at his studio  in Orange CA as I was in the Area,


  we where chatting on set when the model torrid  let out a yell OMG its the sneaky streaker,
 we both looked to see his mua Nixxi  looking amazed ,and Torrid was so quick she grabbed his pants leg as he whizzed  by,
  the sneaky streaker was going so fast he could not stop, and Torrid had such a grip on his pants leg , he left his pants behind , but Orlando did get one shot ,
I was amazed at how fast Torrid was in grabbing his pants ,so watch out sneaky streaker you may not be that fast .

working in photo shop to create an image ,that is not just black and white


Some times I create an image that needs to be more than just black and white ,
 this is one,
  I put a layer over this image to create a very different look , I never worked in a dark room so to me the ease of photoshop is the only way I know ,
  to preview as you work is very much part of the overall process to achieve the vision you have ,

Black Male Nude Figure, black and white photography at my studio


Black male nude model at my studio ,one of the best I have worked with ,

What you may need to know ,to be a model on Model Mayhem part 4

this is just part of my what it takes to be a model series , hopefully the picture will tell the story ,
I have worked  with  model Kelly many times ,she is my concept model , 

 why you say ,

I think the world of her because she is there for my out there concepts ,willing ,hard working ,funny never flakes and  just a dam nice girl, wish more models where like her,

just go back and look at some of the stuff I have done with her ,the Broken doll,
dog eating models arm ,

Kelly may not be 5" 9" but to me she is ,  also what a model should bring in to my studio is respect and creativity when we work on Ideas ,
 Kelly does every time ,and wants the concept to happen ,so yes I love  working with her ,


  have  also put up the three head shots that makeup artist Elise created for this ,





Chanel Rene Photographer Open house meetup at her studio and yes the streaker paid a vist

yep that sneaky streaker made a very quick visit to Chanel's  Open house meetup at her Studio on Sunday     Chanel,s studio link
Studio OC
10562 Bechler River
Fountain Valley, CA 92708  

Kevin was the only photographer out of 17 to get a picture of the sneaky streaker,

even I and Orlando did not see him. as he is so fast ,only one model saw him and had to be treated for shock ,she said he was just a blur

but Kevin showed us a pic on his camera to prove it , and here is the picture .

They seek him here, they seek him there
Those Photographers  seek him everywhere, but are they quick enough ,

  It was shot with model Jean Patchett in 1949 to be the cover For Vogue  January 1950 ,
Model Kelly  sent me an email with this image from Harper's Bazaar not sure which month or who the photographer was, as could not find it on Google,

but it is nice to see great images being recreated not forgotten , so have put all 4 images up

a Broken Doll ,, I have re-posted this with the thoughts of Elise( from her Blog )

 I really like the way Elise thinks and writes so have re-posted this from her Blog ,
 
 Do we look at a model and just see just what is on the outside? So, when they fall and break, are they just an empty shell? 

Do they become a broken doll just to be thrown away? a broken doll just to be thrown away?" 

if asked, most I believe would agree that models have a stereo type of being empty, and hollow,.
For whatever reason, the general consensus about them, is that they are shallow and therefor a hollow soul empty on the inside.
Based on a bijork music video phillip was inspired to create the image in which the model, kelly v, lies on the floor broken.

In the video the pursuit of being perfect and  striving for an imposable to reach vision of  conceived perfection, causes the ultimate destruction and downfall of the main character.  

I believe that we are all like the doll face,


we strive to reach what society views as what we should be,  what we should dream, or even  what to look like.
It is wanting these false things to look up too, that make a person hollow.


We all strive for unreachable and unrealistic goals and it is when we don't reach them, that we fall.
If any of us fall we can break, and when broken we all feel like that empty shell.


We ourselves are doll faces.

Black and white photography to colour and comercial with Elise Makeup artist and a Mayhem Model

had booked makeup artist Elise for a commercial shoot with  JJansen designs,
 but alas our model from LA was having car trouble so said we would  reschedule with her,

but what to do now as we where ready  to shoot ,
well had been working with Elise as a model , but we needed a more glamor look and Elise likes the world of black and white photographer and may say more on the darker side as well ,

  any way we had some wigs in hand and some sets of jewelry to shoot,
so Elise said well let me become some one else,

  she really amazed me it was she became another model, but before we started we did shoot some black and white ,, so have posted them and her glamor look with JJansen Jewelry Designs ,
