Enough Of March

I moved on to April and turned the page. This is April in one of the Pirelli Calendars hanging in my office. About as close as I can get right now to photographing Pirelli style. Sheltering in place.

Wrong Face Mask

Thinking I got this face mask thing wrong. OK, sheltering in place.

Model Protective Wear

Working on protective wear for models so I can get back to some photo shoots. What do you think? OK, sheltering in place. Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.

The Other Side – Sheltering In Place

Had I known, I would have photographed the other side of the sign. Sheltering in place.

Wrapped In Papier Doux

Model Aristodeme naked except for wrapped in papier doux. A day we spent shooting with many unusual props and ideas. Much fun! Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Thanks!

National No Bra Day

I almost missed it! Today is National No Bra Day!
 
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!

Auto Erotica Peep Show

A video montage that I created for a gallery show I did with the Michael Weems Collection Gallery creating a separate gallery called “Auto Erotica” in Palm Springs. The entire gallery was works of my photography and special auto body pieces by Michael Weems.

We even had built a seedy motel room in the gallery. Kind of road trip auto related Route 66 with erotic twists. Stacks of old televisions played another video montage of my creation. This video actually played through a peep hole in the blacked out front window of the gallery 24 hour per day 7 days per week. It was great fun!


SX-70 Nude

Continuing my theme of shooting with instant cameras. Here is a series I shot during our photo shoot where I brought out an old folding Polaroid SX-70. Again I love the look of instant photos and especially here, the somewhat mid 1960’s film color palette. With model Jamie Lovelle.

Passed Out On Instax

Continuing my theme of shooting instant photographs. My photo shoot with Shauna Toerner had me bring out my Fujifilm Instax mini camera. We had so much fun shooting these and many more too.

I Am In It

Are you one of the ad agencies, editorial publications, design firms, and select companies around the US that received the 2019 APA Sourcebook? Yes I am in it. Thanks!

Objectifying Women

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.”

Kajira

Model Kajira in our photo shoot. Powerful in her own way. Studio shoot in Palm Springs.

 


Naked And Bold

I do find some women very bold when they are naked. It is very powerful. Shauna Toerner in our photo shoot. At FD Photo Studio in Los Angeles. Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.

Floor Model

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!

Preying Female

This is the preying female of the species. From my photo shoot with Shauna Toerner. One from one of a few series we shot that day. Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.

Working

Working on getting a shoot ready for publication. Edgy for sure. With my buddy and model Shauna Toerner. Shot on a Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. At FD Photo Studio Los Angeles.

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!

Edgy Fashion Instax

Just too fun! Instant photographs from my shoot with Shauna Toerner. Actually shot about fifty. Love the look and so simple.

And as for Shauna Toerner in front of the camera…. Just Wow! Love her and will be showing more from our shoot soon.

Including more of the Fujifilm Instax instant photos, the photos from the shoot itself on Hasselblad digital and Broncolor lighting. Some video too! Makeup and Hair Styling by the ever impressive Natalie Lyle. Thanks!

Thrift Shop Chic

Thrift Shop Chic… The wardrobe for our photo shoot was all thrift shop. A true model creative…. Amber Flowers.

Photoshoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Thanks!

Easter Bonnet

This would be more of my idea of an Easter Bonnet. It’s all about the Bonnet of course. Model Severine makes for my idea of wearing the perfect Easter wardrobe too. Ok maybe my ideas about most wardrobe might be different than most. I like it!

Makeup and Styling with the incredible Blanche LeBeau. Lighting by Broncolor and a Hasselblad digital camera system. Maybe next year we need Bunny Rabbits too.

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.

Emotion

“Emotion” – I just don’t know which one. From an incredibly fun photo shoot with model Severine. Superb Makeup and Styling with the stellar Blanche LeBeau.

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

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.
