There is always something else

September 9, 2016

to do. There was a time I had plenty of time to write here but now so many dangling projects. Finally got the summer issue of Peau magazine is on it’s way, see link

Of course a model asked me for a digital tear sheet and I spent days looking up how to do to no avail, nothing. Just now it occurred to me maybe she wanted a ‘screen shot’ of the Peau pages. Life is full of difficult question made more by how the question is phrased.

But persistence always pays off somehow. My wife is turning into a very creative photographer I am impressed with her creativity see She has found her niche at least with the underwater photography and climate change.

Me after publishing the summer Issue of Peau magazine I am drained yet it’s time to start again as I have a theme Halloween. I really haven’t up dated my web site at Photoshelter in months.

I started the day wearing my Occupy Wall Street t-shirt and listening to native american tapes I’ve collected along the way. Doing laundry moved to listening to Phantom of the Opera just to get my blood moving. Now it’s Man of La Manch.

The other day a french model Byuruka Heck contacted me about shooting together when she was in town. Hey why not I’ve been in front of a computer for weeks. To say nothing of home projects.

So we began doing shoots and talking she wanted some fashion images
but the latex dress didn’t cooperate with the shoes.

I am not sure about that

She did fit into the Peau magazine tattooed look.




I asked about this tattoo she explained it was about birth and death and she had designed it herself.

As we talked I suggested trying some body paint ideas I’e been thinking about. Sure.

This isn’t an easy technique as I need to mix each batch them pour it never knowing where it will go.

This can be messy an disappointing at the same time. But that’s the exciting part of it, you never know what will happen, except a shower afterwards.

I want to do more of this as I learn something each time.Till next time





Costumed redheaded young woman in leather and chain mail dress

June 10, 2015

it’s been a long time since i’ve had the opportunity to do some new photos. I was very pleased when a friend asked if i knew of a female model who would be interested in modeling some of his clothing that he had acquired in the course of life. When i would visit him i’d seen the chain mail dress hanging and had asked him about it. ‘something i picked up at the renaissance fair’ which he lives close to and visits every year. i contacted a young model [see here] i like working with asking her if she would be game. then called my friend setting a time and date. on the day of the shoot he came to studio loaded down with outfits. we were only able to use two of them and he acted as the stylist since he knew how to fit them.

there are way too many hooks for me to venture as my own stylist, sort of like being your own lawyer. one of the things i learned that day is how many different egos, for lack of a better word, effect the shoot. there was no real client and no one bothered me about how to shoot but there was something weird in the air.

as you can see here there weren’t too many keepers but as i always say i don’t need hundreds of them. i did fool around during the processing doing a B&W image below.


B&W experiment

i am not sure if i am fond of this one, too many shadows on her face and chest. i need to be more aware of details before i press the shutter. now it’s time for a costume change which turned into a long costume fitting.

that masha hung in there gamely, which is why i like working with her. she has always done what i’ve asked her to do trusting my judgment that i mean to do no harm. she does surprise me by bringing some tricks of her own.

one of the things i look for in people i work with is intensity. for art models it’s not always there as they seemed to be trained to be demure. who trains them other models, or is there an art model school down in Florida?


bitting the subjection crop

some thing different as we move through the day that’s what is so much fun, things happen. gotta have a sense of humor.



at the end of the day we were a bit tired from all our traveling here and there from one fantasy to another or is it just dreamtime? no one was hurt or damaged by our playtime. but wait there is one more image i almost forgot another toy. here you can see what she brought with her, a creative addition of attitude, something models need to understand and this is a fine example, it just doesn’t come out of the blue, it’s felt.

nipple clamps


see how her body seems to lunge forward challenging the viewer? the way she holds her head back and arms tucked behind her, some body language. just a lucky shot for me.

we go from demur and passive to challenging. some range of human emotions

I showed these images to my partner and retoucher on our new magazine, peau magazine, he asked where we shoot this spread. ‘here’ i said. he looked at me strangely because all he saw was an empty studio. yes all the backgrounds were merged and composed in Adobe photoshop 6  from stock images i wander around the city snapping away thinking they might be interesting someday. life can be fun that way. enjoy. jene
