Harper Scott was one of the first people that I ever hired to photograph. I jumped online and searched for girls that looked cute and open-minded for the type of photos that I wanted to take. I initially thought I’d be able to schedule a shoot for later that week.
However once I started corresponding with Harper, I took a shot in the dark and asked if she’d be interested in coming over that afternoon for an hour or two. To my surprise, she was game and was at my door in no time. I can’t say I knew exactly what I was doing, nor do I even now. I just know what type of photos I like to see and aim for that. Fortunately, Harper Scott is a sharp girl and easy to work with … the perfect beginning to my long and eventful journey behind the camera.
When I arrived at the Denver airport, I was greeted with the strange giant mural in the last image of this gallery. Google “mural denver airport”, you will see more.
I was in Colorado searching for this crunchy, white, nearly extinct goodness called snow. There is never much of it in Los Angeles. Hilary Craig is this trippy 21-year-old from the Mile-High City. I was a stranger to the town, so I asked Hilary to show me what makes for good sightseeing in the area. She took me to Red Rocks Park. Here is what happened.
Julie Wheeler says her father instilled a strong sense of discipline in all his children. Julie and her siblings were constantly nudged towards sports and other competitive activities.
Nowadays, she lives on her own in a small Hollywood apartment, sans the strict guidance of a parent. Her apartment might be messy, but overall, the mess that is Julie is a beautiful one.
You might be stressed about the holidays. You might be wracking your brain over the perfect gift for your grandmother. You might be begging the Sun to stick around longer each day to warm up your old bone. Fuck it, man. That’s what my spiritual guru says.
Fuck it, man. You will pull through. January will come around shortly. Then safety, balance, and routine will be restored. And just as you burp up the aftertaste of your last eggnog, you will scratch your head and wonder what all the fuss was about. For now, enjoy Luna Kitsuen on a warmer day of the calendar. More from inside the wigwam to come, as well as a splash-filled vid.
The tall, lovely, fair-skinned Haley Gladwell returns for another Zishy shoot. The weather was warm, so Haley felt comfortable in this sheer black nothing by Armani Exchange. She consumed about three half-melted popsicles in a matter of minutes. Haley recalled a sugar high when I showed her the photos.
We took these in the Palisades, which is an upscale neighborhood just a few minutes from UCLA, where Haley attends and recently finished her sophomore year. Some of the residences’ outdoor security cameras may have picked up part of our antics. Whoops.
Lilith Lust is the type of girl that simply turns heads no matter where she goes. In this series, we visited Chinatown. She said her outfit seemed very ‘Asian’, so I suppose our location was perfect. Back at the parking garage where we took some of these, an elder security guard approached us.
We could tell that he did not speak English well. Lilith batted her eyelashes and smiled. The man smiled back, gave us a thumbs-up and walked away. It pays have an attractive girl by your side.
Once I saw Natalie Moore on a preview trailer for an adult site, I knew I had to photograph her for Zishy. Natalie was no disappointment. She brought the vibrance that had caught my attention. Though she is in porn, I suspected she had a creative mind and a truly devious nature.
She was not simply perv-for-pay as so many girls are in the industry. Mix that in with her looks and you have a winner .We took these at a buddy’s place who has an exquisite little garden. Natalie offered the idea of climbing the tree in her dress and heel
Erin Marie Hogan is an actress in Hollywood. She began her theater and ballet training at an early age in St. Louis, Missouri. She’s made many appearances in indie and short films,as well as staring in the feature, Paranormal Entity, not to be confused with Paranormal Activity.
Erin is quite physical and boasts about her recent accomplishments in picking up pole dancing. When I arrived at Erin’s apartment, I had her show me some of the activities that she does at home. I must admit, it was Erin’s idea to recreate a scene where she had to climb in through the window because she had locked herself out.
Domino Madsen is a 20 year-old from Texas with a generally curious attitude. She saw an ad that I put up for modeling in a scandalous category of a popular online classifieds site. She said she was awake late one night getting a kick from reading the various listings for private massages and escort services.
She saw my ad and said it was the only one that seemed ‘legit’ and so she sent in a response. When I first saw her pics, I was a bit skeptical because she had such a wholesome appearance. I didn’t want to get my hopes up just to be flaked on again… it happens a lot. But in the end, Domino was for real and seemed to enjoy being a wee bit devious out on the streets of Los Angeles.
Domino Madsen back in effect. She’s cute, way into music, ready to go to a good concert any night of the week, and loves herself some Chick-fil-A. We visited one of these establishments right before the photos at her place. Chicken sandwiches are okay, but they don’t hold their own as well as a 100% ground beef burger, in my opinion. I visited to one of my favorite burger joints today in a daze of hunger. And just as I’m placing my order, I notice that I’ve made a mistake.
They only accept cash and I don’t have enough of it. They do have a convenient ATM machine inside their small dining area. Nice. So now I gotta pay almost 14 dollars for a burger and fries (no drink), and then get reamed with transaction fees from both their machine and my own bank. Nah, bro. Not today. You did not win me as a customer. Stop being a slacker eatery that doesn’t take card. Get with the program. It’s 2012. Ok, maybe, Chick-fil-A doesn’t sound that bad after all.
