Here we have Tristan Berrimore playing video games, which is obviously a fiction. We all know girls do not play video games. Let’s not kid ourselves, guys. If you want to meet women, put down that controller and go to a yoga class or take some Salsa lessons. Go ahead and crucify me and talk about the rare exceptions to the rule.
But never forget the reasoning behind the rule. Tristan was having a bit too much fun relaxing in the chair, so I suggested she get her heart pumping on the elliptical trainer. Oddly enough, it mostly just sent my heart racing.
It has been about a year since I first met Kendra Sunderland. A lot of people know the vague details of her story: girl gets caught masturbating on webcam in her college library. I remember reading the viral news articles and thinking; Goddamn, it would be fantastic if I could get her on Zishy.
I sent off a few messages that night and I awoke to a promising reply in my inbox. Within 48 hours, I was on a plane to Portland. Any success I have achieved has been a result of rejecting a pessimistic mindset. Likewise, I sensed much optimism in Kendra. I know she has endured a shitload of pain and fear due to the judgment of others, and all at a young age.
This gallery of Lana Zuyeva is a personally historic one. It was right on the cusp of me deciding what I wanted to do with my photos. I was having fun shooting all sorts of subjects, but I began to realize that the most fun for me was photographing girls being semi-inappropriate. I also noticed that I was enamored by images that did not show explicit nudity.
It’s not that I don’t love naked girls. Ninja, please. I just prefer the nail-biting anticipation which can only be delivered if certain things are left unseen. Lana is from Russia and has one hell of a figure, not to mention her amazingly fun personality. She is almost as goofy and perverted as myself. We became friends after the shoot and I showed her my favorite 24/7 burrito joint and she showed me how not to drive a car.
The unique Piper Candless returns. She invited me to snap these photos at a posh home she was house-sitting for a couple of weeks. Every time I visit Palm Springs, I feel the enchantment Sinatra, Liberace, Dean Martin and countless others must have felt .
It is a destination which forces a slower pace than the choleric state that Los Angeles often has you in. If I ever get the opportunity to shoot a girl like Piper again in this relaxing desert setting, you can be sure I won’t hesitate.
Halloween is my second favorite holiday. Luckily, I met Gabrielle Klein at the perfect time. She is visiting LA for a short while (from Utah) and had never been to the annual Halloween ‘parade’ in West Hollywood. It is estimated that half a million people invade Santa Monica Blvd. on this evening.
I proposed to Gabrielle that we scrounge together a costume and go out to take photos. The first 52 photos in the gallery are from this year and the rest are from my archives of previous outings. Do not fear, you will be seeing more of Gabrielle without the makeup and even without the wardrobe! Hey, cut us some slack. It was a chilly October night.
