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.
Fetish & Alt
 
Just plain beautiful, sexy women of all kinds.

Ups and downs of photography

Pardon me while I rant for a moment. I had a lovely model named Jaclyn scheduled for today. We discussed the shoot a few weeks in advance, and everything was set. I spent the weekend making a wonderful chainmail outfit with turquoise plates. I went to the studio today and did some cleaning and set up the lights. Then I waited for Jaclyn to arrive. And waited. And waited. She did not show up and did not call. I had given her my phone number, but she did not give me hers. Bad mistake on my part; I should have demanded it ahead of time. With no way to contact her, I killed time weaving chainmail, then put the lights and props away and went home. And this was a PAID shoot, so not only did she miss out on a fun shoot, but she missed a paycheck. I sent her an email asking what happened, but she has not bothered to respond. That's what I get for trying to work with a wanna-be.

In contrast, I did a shoot last week with a fantastic model named Hollis Ireland. This was my third shoot with her and every time has been a delight. You can set your watch by her arrival time. She is very creative in her posing. You just turn her loose on the set and watch the magic unfold. She is a true professional.

Some day I will learn my lesson and stop wasting time with wanna-be models. I mostly work with professionals these days, but I like to try out amateurs from time to time, in the hope of finding a rising star or to get someone with a unique look. Fortunately, I don't have to deal with too many Jaclyns.
