Shauna Naked And Restless

I think Shauna Toerner does naked and restless very well indeed. Her dilemma helped with Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle. An extra series on Fujifilm Instax instant film from our photo shoot at FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks!

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!

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!

Fashion Nude Through The Glass

Amber Flowers, fashion nude in our photo shoot. Through the glass this time, I love doing these videos! “Thrift Shop Fashion” styled by Amber herself and so very outstanding.


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).

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!
