Debbie Vogel is from San Francisco. It is one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever visited. It seems that the beauty has rubbed off on this 19 year old. Her natural body is a sight to behold. She comes out to LA every couple of months for modeling gigs. Her fashionable looks easily land her fashionable modeling jobs. She was staying at her friend’s place in LA, who also photographs Debbie, and apparently he had no idea that she does any underwear modeling.
So it was her wish that we shot quickly in his living room while he was out running errands in the morning. But while we were in the middle of taking these, he unexpectedly arrives and she is embarrassed as all hell. I asked her the reason for keeping it a secret and she says that once a guy knows that you take provocative photos, that style is the only one he will want to take of you. And by that, she proved to me she was not only pretty, but also smart.
Danica Ensley back at it with her fun and positive personality. I asked her if she’d be cool with drinking and getting playful with milk for some photos. She was like, for shizz. Then she started lapping up milk like a kitty.
And I was like, ahhh yeah! She’s a perfect beauty inside and out. Loyal as all hell to her man, attentive and caring towards her nephews, ready to work hard and do a good job at whatever task is in front of her. There needs to be more like her. Danica for life!
Chelsea Dawson moved to LA 2 years ago from New Zealand. I photographed her at her home in Brentwood. She loves animals, especially dogs, and seems to genuinely enjoy making new friends.
Her day job is as a receptionist at a legal firm in Century City. Chelsea has the frame that lends perfectly to fashion/lingerie modeling. Apparently, this was one of her first photo shoots ever and just like her incredible figure, she was a natural.
Upon editing these photos, I realized how the sequence makes no sense. Why would Kelly Lamprin rub lotion on her skin only to jump into the shower shortly after? Did anyone notice this oddity before reading these notes? If you did, you deserve a badge for being hyper-observant.
I certainly would have missed it. All of my attention would be drawn to this incredible girl shedding her underwear and enjoying a hot shower. The water was so warm it made Kelly’s bottom turn red. I found that to be absurdly cute. After drying off, Kelly rushed to her job at a local movie theater. Her clientele must have had no clue that they just missed the real show. BTW, a monthly subscription to Zishy costs less than a movie ticket. Just sayin’.
A girl like Luna Castro takes me back to my younger days growing up in El Paso, Texas. The population there consists primarily of Mexican Americans, not surprisingly since El Paso is a border town. I am guessing 7 out of every 10 girls that I knew were brunettes with dark complexions.
I will be real with you, this had a lasting impact on my taste in women. People tend to desire that which is rare. Looking through this site, it is evident that I have an inclination towards girls with lighter skin tones. But there are exceptions to every rule and Luna Castro is simply gorgeous even to my discriminating eye. She is also one of the most confident and experienced models that I have ever been lucky enough to photograph. Viva la raza.
Jules Diamond allowed me to photograph her at her place. Some girls are hesitant about that sort of thing, but I tell them that its safer for the girl to invite me to their place then for the girl to enter a complete stranger’s home, right? Plus, who wants to have to pack all sorts of crap into a suitcase and battle the Los Angeles traffic?
Also, potential models often ask if I hire a makeup artist or if I have a photo studio. I swiftly confess that I only photograph girls who do not need professional makeup in order to look appealing. And if I was limited to shooting in the same environment each time, I’d feel like a mouse on an exercise wheel. For better or worse, I’ll stick to winging it.
I was actually surprised that Jamie Alexis was willing to be photographed in a restroom having fun. I expected that she would tell me it was too gross or stupid. But when Jamie saw how ridiculously pink this particular ladies’ room was, she fell in love.
Jamie is a real girlie girl. She doesn’t like sports, she loves shopping, and she never goes anywhere without looking great. Luckily, that latter one is rather easy for a girl like Jamie.
Jade Couture AKA Natasha Malkova is as pretty and sweet and natural as they come from Southern California. She first gives you the impression that she’s a bit reserved, but when you ask her to strip down or do something provocative, you can’t sense the least bit of hesitation. Jade keeps close with her small group of friends and they enjoy going out on hikes and other random excursions in nature.
Although she is friendly and full of smiles, one can sense that Jade is a quiet and thoughtful person. She claims that when she was young, her parents kept her in unflattering clothes and hence made her feel a bit like the ugly duckling in school. Seems like that is no longer the case.
Issy Mai and I returned back to my suite at the Trump resort after hitting the pool. She was completely comfortable with me at this point and didn’t seem to mind walking around without a stitch of clothing on.
I pointed out the extravagant telephone by the toilet, the embedded flat screen TV in the bathroom mirror, and the gaudy horse-head statue on the desk. All of which made for great potpourri in these images. Issy was a pleasure to work with and meet on this quick trip of mine to Vegas, a beautiful person inside and out.
A while ago I became intrigued with photos that I found floating on the net where you see a girl clothed and then right next to it, the same girl in a similar pose but with less clothing on. When I met Ingrid Hayes for this shoot, I explained the concept and we gave it a go. Ingrid is a pleasant young lady with the essence of a hipster, however I still think she’s pretty cool.
I poked around her place for items we could use as a prop and she whipped out a 35mm film camera that she got at Urban Outfitters. I only ever owned one film camera and it was a broken one that I don’t think I ever figured out how to work. I never found where to plug in the USB cable to download the photos?!?
