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.

The Salton Sea Whispers

As the weather cools here, you can hear the whispers of the waves of the Salton Sea calling “Nora” “Nora” “Nora please come back” “Nora we miss you“. Yes that is what they say, just listen closely! Makeup and Hair Styling by the globe trotting star Blanche LeBeau.

Golden Hour

The time at Sunrise and Sunset when the light is just right for photographs. I was asked yesterday in an interview if that is when I try to do most of my photography. The answer is yes and no. If it works out that way, ok. But more often than not it doesn’t, so you have to make it work. And especially when you have very bright hot overhead Sun much of the time.

The first step, someone gorgeous and fun in from of your camera, Maria Bertrand. Next step, an incredible Makeup and Hair Stylist, Blanche LeBeau. Third step, wonderful lighting and reliable equipment, Broncolor. Finally the superb Hasselblad digital camera system. See! Wasn’t that easy!

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.


Alt Photo Media

I forgot how much I enjoy alternate photography media such as instant films. My buddy, model, Noel VanBrocklin in a behind the scenes photo using a Fujifilm Instax Camera. I am also really liking doing short video clips both behind the scenes and as a feature along with the photography. Great fun and I love the look!

The actual photo shoot was done with Broncolor lighting and a Hasselblad digital camera system. This photo with a Fujifilm Instax wide camera. But I also use Polaroid cameras with film from the Impossible Project. I shoot my video clips with Fujifilm X Series cameras. Thanks!

Long Skirting The Issue

More behind the scenes posing fun with Kajira. We have more videos that you will only be seeing here and not on social media. Somewhat revealing. Think chic. “Porno Chic”…

A term created by New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer in the 1970s to describe the work of fashion photographers Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Chris von Wangenheim. Editorial and advertising photography that uses nudity, eroticism… sexual and sultry to be more than pornography. I also refer to it as “edgy lifestyle” and think it is great fun. That is why you see it in my photography. It is not just being naked.

Video on my Fujifilm X-Series X-T1. The strobes firing are Broncolor. The actual photo shoot on Hasselblad digital. Always the best! Thanks!
