These photos depict my models in exotic clothing and/or against exotic backdrops that are meant to evoke fantasy heroines, warrior queens, and the like.  In most cases, I made the costumes and backdrops myself.

Women with chains, ropes, leather, and other fun stuff.

Just plain beautiful, sexy women of all kinds.

An outdoor shoot, finally!

I have been spending too much time in the studio for the last several months. I finally got out and had a wonderful outdoor shoot with a beautiful model, Missy Rhodes. My primary goal was to shoot her in a couple of my chainmail outfits. We did that, but we also saw a couple of nifty backdrops for some artistic nude shots. One was the remnant of a tree that had been hit by lightning. It stands alone in the middle of a field. There was a bit of fog that morning, so the trees in the background are shrouded in mist.


Uprooted tree.
Nearby we found an uprooted tree that had been growing in sandy soil. I had Missy stand in front of the roots. The tree was so large, and the root system so extensive, that it was difficult to capture the whole vista. I could not stand back very far because the ground was swampy behind me.

I don't mean to wax too poetic here, but I like both photos because they contrast the vitality of the model with the death and destruction of the background. The smoothness and softness of the model's skin also contrasts nicely with the charred surface of the burnt tree and the sandy tendrils of the roots.

I'll try to post a few of the chainmail shots in the next few days.
