Yes, baseball season has passed for the year, but that did not deter Lauren Clare and I from exploiting this field in Beverly Hills. Lauren is a petite 18 year-old from Kentucky. Apparently, her modeling makes her insecure boyfriend feel, well, insecure. All I have to say is if you are fortunate enough to date a girl who is sought after for modeling, you should thank your lucky stars and hold thy tongue.
I’ve learned that a girl is going to do what a girl wants to do. And unless you DON’T want to continue enjoying her in your bed, you better get over your irrational desire to control. Patrons of this park would agree, you got something good going on, mang. Do not F it up.
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.
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.
Dasha Krasova stands almost six feet tall and came to America recently by way of Siberia, Russia. She has modeled all over the world, mostly in the category of fashion editorial, yet is only 20 years young. It took some persuasion to have her grace Zishy.
Because, along with her impressive looks, Dasha brought some conservative Orthodox values to the States. In the end, my persistence wore her down and she managed to crack a smile on several occasions and seemed at ease. She is definitely a sweet and beautiful woman I would love to photograph again.
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.
Cassie Becker and I took these just outside of her place. It was a hot Sunday morning. Sweat was unavoidable. Cassie, in good spirits, sported this dress that was not made of the thinnest material.
I had seen other girls try this piece on, but it simply did not work for them. Cassie’s spectacular figure, however, had no problem making itself known. So focused was I on the photos, that I nearly fell off a 12-foot ledge, since these were taken atop the property’s garage structure.
Blake Crawford appreciated the idea of photographing her with a natural, unrefined look. She understood that sometimes its better to not tamper much with a good thing. One of my favorite quotes is: if it ain’t broke, don’t break it.
Ok, so its just my own version of an all ready popular idiom, but that is how I often feel about cosmetic modifications such as makeup, piercings, surgery, tattoos, and sometimes even shaving/hair removal. Anyhoo, Blake has a fantastic raw beauty and seemed perfectly comfortable in her own skin.
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.
Ashlee Hills came to Los Angeles to work in the adult industry. Everyone that met her knew that she would be successful in this endeavor. She was 19, beautiful, and very wild with desire. Due to some unexpected circumstances, this ‘dream’ never came to fruition.
Alice Wonder wants to ride her bicycle. As much as Freddie Mercury? Probably not. However, I know she would never use banned substances just to ride faster than others like good ol’ Lance. Which brings me to a subject that has been on my mind for a while. Mr. Armstrong was admired by millions because he battled cancer and was a champion.
Pistorius was similarly glorified for competing on the Olympic track without most of his lower limbs. Yet both of these global tales of heroism are now tainted with scandal. Lance was on the juice and Pistorius allegedly gunned down his girl out of jealous rage. What’s next? It just goes to show that we’re all flawed, well except Alice Wonder of course. Less evening news, more Zishy!
