Occasionally I get accused of objectifying women in my photographs. Far from it, I am only guilty of showing these women as powerful in their beauty and sexuality; with or without clothes. To quote famed photographer Helmut Newton… “My women are always victorious.”
Model Kajira in our photo shoot. Powerful in her own way. Studio shoot in Palm Springs.
A discount for the floor model? Or maybe I worked her too hard in our photo shoot? The very versatile and talented Shauna Toerner is one of a few series we shot that day at FD Photo Studio in Los Angeles. Gear notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Thanks!
Hasselblad, my favorite camera system for much of my work. One of the reasons is that I am a huge fan of the history of the cameras having been there for some of the most iconic photographs ever created from fashion to going into Outer Space and to the Moon. I do collect the Hasselblad publications which are unique and filled with their features of photographers from around the world.
So very excited to have had the opportunity to photograph Nova who was a model in one of the “Victor By Hasselblad” editions. A very creative model and visual artist. Perhaps unusual for her to be the one being asked for an autograph. Thank You Nova!
