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.
