If you’re not big on tattoos, I feel ya. If you do not like Piper Candless, tough. I have a few galleries on her. I had to trek back up to Palm Springs just to photograph Piper. She was leaving the area, so the window of opportunity was mighty slim. Nonetheless, I knew that I had to capture this eccentric beauty with her athletic body for your eyes.
We woke up at the crack of dawn for these images. Piper had her espresso, I had my camera. We get out there and within minutes, she tells me that this setting calls for her to strip out of her clothes. Alright, Piper. No complaints here. Can you see the Ryan McGinley influence on this one?
Courtney Laudner is a natural beauty who drove out to LA from Apple Valley. She struck me as a bit quiet and reserved. But then she told me that she has a wild side. Perhaps its all relative. People from that area tend to be rather religious … Conservative Christian religious.
I once had to drive through Apple Valley and it seemed every other radio station was playing a song about Jesus and Glory and all that Salvation business. I just hope the rapture doesn’t come too soon. I would like to photograph a few more lovely girls like Courtney before all is said and done.
Ingrid Hayes is over 18. Please do not get your undies in a bunch. Her looks are quite deceiving, but that is probably an ideal quality for an actress. She is putting this trait to good use in edgy roles that call for a young girl with an untamed sexuality. Watch out Ellen Page. I have seen Ingrid’s reels and was very impressed, truly one of the few actresses I have met that can actually act.
She gave me a tiny taste with her nauseated look in image #17. Fooled me. We took these out in Eagle Rock. Ingrid was bold and beautiful in this little dress by Forever 21 without a stitch of anything else underneath. Stay tuned for more of this unique beauty.
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
