Flightsuit Nude

Well this could be a flightsuit. Studio photo shoot with model Kajira. Yes I do like to shoot on the edgy side. Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.

Is This What You Wanted To See?


Yes She Is Naked

Shauna Toerner from our photo shoot. This is one of the instant film photos I shot for fun and I really love the look of instant film. This was Fujifilm Instax but I also shoot Polaroid cameras with Fujifilm and film from the Impossible Project which is now Polaroid Originals.

By the way Shauna is an incredible model and looks gorgeous naked. I get to say that because I have always loved the art of women nude or semi-nude in photography. For decades if you walked me into a museum and there was the work of Helmut Newton or some other famous photographer shooting in the genre of “Porno Chic” that is where you found me. The genre now also appears as “Naked Chic” and can be seen in high end lifestyle and fashion magazines across the more extensive shelves of a bigger city Barnes & Noble and major city magazine stands. Indeed a mainstay in the rest of the world, just too much for our timid U.S. archaic values.

Personally I like the look and fun of Porno Chic and Naked Chic and that is why I shoot it. I also like poking fun at society and it’s ill conceived prudishness. My only problem is mixing it in with my own mainstream work in such diverse areas as aviation, fitness, and bodybuilding. My more fashion work is OK with it. So I had gone back to hiding it away. But no fun in that and I have been around long enough to do what I want. So watch for more here on my Blog. Can’t put this on Facebook and much of social media, so you would do me a great service by subscribing to my Blog here and passing me along to your friends. Re-posting is good too. Thanks for that.

Photo shoot notes… Makeup and Hair Styling by the wonderful Natalie Lyle. I used a Fujifilm Instax Mini camera and shot about fifty. And they are really great! The actual shoot was with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting by Broncolor. At FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks again!

About The Purse

It is all about the purse. Too little, too big? Hold just enough or not enough? Formal or casual? With truly one of my all time favorite models, Aristodeme. Broncolor lighting and Hasselblad digital camera system.

Nova And Hasselblad

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!

Torn Up

A little torn up but all good for sure! Amber Flowers, a tremendously talented and gorgeous woman. Her styling design made it such a great outstanding photo shoot! Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system (H4D-40) and Broncolor lighting (Para 133).

No Bra Day

You may have missed the shout out, Friday October 13th was National No Bra Day!

Ok yes very fun! But actually on this day, millions of women go no bra to promote breast cancer awareness.

From my photo shoot with model Severine. Makeup and hairstyling by the incredible Blanche LeBeau.

Trying To Be Social Media Safe

I try to remember in photo shoots to create some Social Media safe work. A lot of my photography goes toward being “edgy editorial” or sometimes called “fashion nude” or “porno chic”, a term used to describe the photography of Helmut Newton, mainstream fashion photographer Mario Testino, and now most recently, the fashion house of Yves Saint Laurent . So here I asked Kajira to keep things covered up. It kind of worked.


Beauty And The Bald Spot

Behind the scenes photography by my assistant for the day Harmoni Everett which clearly exhibits the incredible gorgeousness of our model from NYC, Nora Zainglein but also my increasingly declining hair volume. More ‘behind the scenes’ than I expected lol.

The incredible Makeup, Hair Styling and Body Painting (you will see that soon too) for the day by the premier Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau. Studio photo shoot in Downtown Los Angeles, Hasselblad digital camera equipment and Broncolor lighting. Always the best!

Just Lounging By The Pool

She lounged by the pool and I shot photographs. The result of good planning. A sexy and edgy photo shoot destined for an editorial series. Model Noel VanBrocklin, photographer me and my Hasselblad digital camera. Thanks!

It Takes Four

Sometimes a photo shoot is just perfect. The model, a very extraordinary gorgeous Séverine. Incredible makeup and styling by the globe trotting Blanche LeBeau. And not a time to use anything but the best photo gear; Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. As for me… one very happy photographer!

Is This What You Wanted To See!

“Is this what you wanted to see!”… From my photo shoot with Kajira. She is too good! Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!

Is This What You Wanted To See?


SEX

SEX… There I said it. The gorgeous Aristodeme is reading it. Many photographs to see in it too. “SEX” conceived and featuring Madonna was released in 1992. Photographs and writings of pornography, simulations of all kinds of sexual acts, sadomasochism, raunchy and very erotic.

At the time, critics said it went way too far. But ultimately it was a defining moment for Madonna, her creativity, and as a champion for women’s sexuality and equality. It sold 150,000 copies on the first day of it’s release. “SEX” is perhaps the most sought after out of print book ever released.

Looking At Her Looking At You

Look away, no you just can’t. Even when you do, you still see her looking at you. This gorgeous woman, Amber Flowers in our photo shoot. She also created her makeup, hair and wardrobe styling. One incredibly talented and beautiful individual.

Mystery Posing Fun

Some behind the scenes posing fun during a photo shoot with Kajira. She is truly a gorgeous and fun model!


Just Love It

I love the people I photograph! I love the creation, the wardrobe or lack of wardrobe, the makeup, the process, the cameras, the lighting equipment, even the light stands, all of it. And I am a true lover of photography, not just my photographs but the world of photographs.

My photo shoot with the beautiful Amber Flowers. The camera is Hasselblad digital. The lighting is Broncolor with the so unique Broncolor Para 133 reflector. I love it all, I truly do!

Looking At Me?

Yes we are looking at you! It would be a tragedy not to! Amber Flowers in our photo shoot. Superbly wardrobe styled and makeup and hair by Amber. Hasselblad digital camera system and lighting by Broncolor. I am sure happy I shot some photos to remember all this!

Back Of The Closet

I always suggest to models that they should bring along the things they bought but have stuck in a closet or in a drawer because they never found the opportunity to wear those things. It can be so fun! in our photo shoot, Kajira had a few of those kinds of things.

Add A Vintage Turban

Photo shoot with model Kajira was just so very fun! Tall, slender and so very well poised! I cannot even begin to tell you, but I have the photos and some great video! But for now I loved her look with such a simple wardrobe addition as this vintage turban. Made my day!

Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!

Not Fall Flowers

This is not Fall flowers, this is Amber Flowers and she is just perfect. And wardrobe styling by Amber as well. She is so good!

Shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system. Broncolor lighting with the Broncolor Move 1200L pack and one strobe head in the Broncolor Para 133 reflector. Only the best!

Instant BTS

Fun shooting behind the scenes photos with instant film cameras. This one with the Fujifilm Instax. Of course no one really cares because I know you are staring at the magnificent Noel VanBrocklin. Model, actress and the stunning creature in the blue lagoon of my pool. Shoot notes… lighting is a Broncolor Move 1200L and Broncolor beauty dish. The actual shoot with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Often overlooked, the stand and boom are Matthews Studio Equipment. Wonderful and sexy makeup and hair styling by Blanche LeBeau.

The Girl Is Just Beautiful

Model Amber Flowers is not only beautiful but so very talented. When I release some of the other photographs from our shoot, you will see how tremendously creative she is with wardrobe, her looks and shoot ideas. And I will hear this over and over after posting this photograph, because that is what happened on the last photos I posted of her… “She is so beautiful”.

Shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system. Broncolor lighting with the Para 133 reflector and Move 1200L pack. Only the best!

Self Illuminated

Noel VanBrocklin almost like a self illuminated being in the darkness. Makeup and Hair Styling by Blanche LeBeau. Shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.
