So much to say and it has been a while for sure. I am not sure where my blog will go this year. But, for now, I want to share a portrait of a very good friend who always visits me from Amsterdam when I go to Paris. He just shows up and allows me to dress him or undress him for my camera: no questions and no fails. Photographing him was a great way to end my year. And, my sharing this image is a great way for me to start my year in photos. Thanks to everyone who reads/peruses/shares my blog. Happy New Year. And, thank you Stijn and Sarah.
These past few weeks have been nuts in mostly a positive way. However, I have been remiss again in keeping my blog up to date. So, I wanted to share some great new faces (and a few recognizable old schoolers) that I have seen of late. It has been a mix of agency and Instagram finds. So, I decided to not list the agency of the model. And, let you, the viewer, decide who might be an agency model versus an Instagram model that everyone thinks is fun to make fun of or put down. We all start from some place. But,for my taste, just show up with a great skin, decent body and a great personality (agency or not). I love shooting portraits, clothed or unclothed/fashion or no fashion . . . just be nice.
Hello Trannies. It has been a struggle trying to maintain my life, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat AND my blog. All are a breeze save for Snapchat. I give up. However, I LOVE me some Instagram. But, I can’t espouse too much. People are just their for the likes. So, my pledge of allegiance to myself was to keep up on my blog. It has been DIFFICULT. But, I decided to come up with a bit of a challenge to myself. I am calling it 3 portraits; One Night. I will have someone come over and we just riff on clothing or nudes or sleep. And, I will shoot 3 different set ups not lasting more than 20 minutes in total. We get what we get. No RE-DOs/REshoots.
So, who better to start off this little project? My current obsession: Jacopo Olmo (MSA Models). Italy has never looked better. Thanks J for allowing me to shoot what I want to shoot without being vulgar or disrespectful. Post/Tumble away. Just credit the Photographer/Model/Agency too.
