Ikea in Burbank is crawling with people on a Sunday. It is especially busy when they are having some sort of Disney promotion just outside of the storefront. However, this did not deter the fantastic Aysha Thoen and I to try and sneak some shots as devout Christians, fresh out of mass, shopped for trendy new furnishings for their domicile.
It was tough, but we were patient and were able to find a few semi-private nooks for Aysha to show off her sensual stockings. I also did finally try the famed Ikea Swedish meatballs on this day. They paled in comparison to the lovely girl I shared them with. So here she is again, back by popular demand, Ms. Aysha Thoen.
Athena Adrianna is a young Jersey girl out in LA. She studies fashion and design. Athena is not shy and loves to rave. I tried playing some of my ‘old school’ electronica to see if she was familiar with any of it. But apparently Bassnectar and Deadmau5 are the new Aphex Twin and The Prodigy.
She still thought they sounded cool, so I was pacified. I wonder how the young kids felt when they heard Fatboy Slim at the closing ceremony for the London Olympics. I just hope they do not have the same reaction as I do to songs like Pinball Wizard. Hated it! (in flamboyant voice). Anyways, nothing but love for this fun & beautiful girl who is homesick for the East Coast.
Amber Sym is from Florida. Her fit figure, which is all natural, has afforded her many opportunities in nude modeling. She has worked for several big production companies including Playboy.
Amber has an adventurous personality and loves to try new things. She has even dabbled in a bit of parkour. That’s where you jump and run and climb over obstacles in the street and try not to break your face. Agile Amber is definitely not your typical model.
Noelle Easton may be 18 years old and bursting at the right seams, but she has not outgrown Halloween. Heh, that kinda rhymes. We visited the fine establishment named Halloween City on this warm Friday. Yep, temperatures are still pleasant in Porn Valley.
Noelle immediately attracted attention upon our arrival. A kind gentleman leaving the store offered us to photograph on his Harley Davidson, and even though we were in a pinch for time, we could not resist. Then inside, an employee pestered Noelle for a “sexy photo to make [his] girlfriend jealous”. Noelle indulged him, because she’s sweet like that, and the employee went so far as to lift her up into his arms. The place was crawling with people preparing for the holiday, but we managed to get a few photos of our own. Happy Halloween and do not fret, more Easton and her treats coming soon.
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.
Natalie Moore is originally from Maryland. So when I asked if I could photograph her enjoying some SoCal beach rays, the idea met with a resounding ‘yes’. We made sure to first cool our innards with frozen drinks provided by Taco Bell, a proud sponsor of Zishy. I wish.
Then we hit Playa Vista and turned heads at the basketball courts. I suppose they found me attractive. Once we got to the water, it did not take long for sand to crawl up every crevice of Natalie’s. After moshing with waves, she rinsed at the showers alongside some kiddos. Even today, my car’s backseat holds sandy souvenirs from this outing with Natalie Moore. It was worth it.
It was not hard to bring the rebel side out of Tristan Berrimore. We took these in one of the nicer neighborhoods of North Hollywood. Tristan is from Florida. Apparently, there are lots of naughty kids in that state. You ever seen the movie, Bully? That had a lasting impression of the Floridian youth on me.
I also recall the one time I was in the Sunshine State. It was for a wedding and we took the groom out for an impromptu bachelor party. At the club, the most eye-catching stripper wore a smile full of braces and did not look a lick above 17. Through my covert investigation, I discovered that my suspicions were justified. They grow up fast in Florida. True story.
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.
Captain Obvious here again to report that Geri Burgess is incredible. A few months ago, her beauty earned her a contract with a “mainstream” modeling agency. However, recently someone posted all her Zishy links along with her agency page to an online forum. It was surprising since she is published here under a pseudonym.
So someone either seriously did their homework, or what I suspect is more likely, someone who personally knows Geri did her this disservice. Long story short, Geri seems to have been dropped by the moronic agency. I did my best to console her and said she was better off without them. They seemed too small-time for Geri’s potential anyways. Puritans really have no business representing the Bold & Beautiful of this world.
