Dillion Harper is unique inside and out. On the surface, she has one of the most striking figures I have ever seen. And inside, she has a sweet and accommodating personality to write home about.
We hit up Taco Bell for snacks on this warm day and then I showed Dillion a talking seagull at the gas station at Sunset and PCH. No joke. Just about anything is possible in Malibu.
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.
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.
Alyson Grey is one cool cat. She did not even flinch when I asked if I could photograph her in this sheer gown. Alyson is also creative outside of modeling. She loves to paint and is deeply inspired by Matisse.
Having friended her on Facebook, I was pleasantly surprised to learn of our similar interests in music. She was first to introduce me to Lorde, who I enjoyed until the radio made me sick of the Kiwi’s voice. That’s fine. Alyson will always be royal in my book.
Delia Castillo is a petite Latina from Southern Cali. I had her photographically explore the phenomena of the black-tight-trend with me. It is a recurring theme that has mystified many a male in the colder months. It’s as if the female gender found the perfect way to give the finger to Father Winter who said you couldn’t look sexy and stay relatively warm.
And when the sun shines bright, pure magic occurs. Lululemon may not describe it in such a positive manner. They are a yoga apparel manufacturer that came under fire recently for selling products that were transparent in direct light. Apparently many girls were doing yoga without panties under their Lulu-pants. What is this world coming to?
Debbie Vogel has this aura about her that I credit to her upbringing in San Francisco. She’s easy-going, often flustered, and open to creativity. We took these right before I rushed her to catch a bus back to the Bay area. This street, devoted to places that sell automotive glass, is also a spot where day laborers loiter on the sidewalk.
Consequentially, Debbie was timid to take these pictures in front the graffiti wall, but understandably so. One worker decided it was a perfect opportunity to bust out his crappy cell phone and do his own photography of my muse. I had to holler at the bastard to give us 30 seconds of semi-privacy. We took our shots and Debbie earned my respect as a girl willing to go the distance.
Courtney Laudner withstood the intense heat on a warm day in the Valley. And this dress that she’s wearing is not summer garb. Both us of were breaking a sweat. Or should I say that I was sweating and she was perspiring?
Courtney is a bit shy at first, but I can also tell that she enjoys showing off her crazy curves. Finding girls who are beautiful, edgy, and a bit uninhibited can be quite a chore. But when you find them, it is amazing. Courtney fires on all cylinders.
Bobbi Vidal comes from a Puerto Rican family, but she grew up in Michigan. I believe she told me that she enjoys Wu Tang Clan, but I guess it is possible that I am mistaken. In my head, I wish all girls dug on the Wu. I would feel safe betting that most members of the Clan would dig on Bobbi.
Her looks and personality are straight out of my version of the Garden of Eden. Even though she got a bit timid at times, she stuck to the shoot and made it a point to fulfill her role in camera seduction. Mission accomplished. Returning to earth can be painful after days like this.
I told Bailey Helen that she could select anything that she wanted to wear for this pictorial. She compiled the wackiest get-up possible from her suitcase of clothes. But this is Bailey.
She loves life and knows how to cut loose for the camera. Bailey used her long legs and athletic build to attack the hurdles on her high school track team.
Aubrey comes from the Midwest. Her easy-going attitude and bright smile seem ingrained in her personality. We visited a local college campus here in Santa Monica and saw how deviant we could be.
While shooting the panty shots, some guy saw us from about 100 yards away and stayed hidden behind a barrier to see what peeks he could get. Aubrey just seemed to laugh it off and enjoy the warm weather out.
