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.
I like April Grantham. She is super chill and ready to enjoy nature. These were taken in one of the canyons in the Topanga/Malibu area. We went for a hike and both agreed that our situation did not suck. The land was parched due to the drought here in California, but we also had no job or class to report to on this day.
Guess you just gotta appreciate the positive in life and not dwell on the negative. For instance, most of us can celebrate the fact that we were not choked to death by a cop this week. Aphex Twin’s “Rhubarb” is the song in the bonus video.
I knew right from the get-go that I liked Kenna James. I explained that we would have a long drive and probably hit some traffic getting to Underwood Farms. But we both agreed that an authentic Autumn experience was worth the sacrifice. So we grabbed some tacos and jumped on the highway.
Our visit was a blast. The weather was perfect, we got lost in a corn maze, took plenty of adventurous photos and Kenna fell in love with the goats and chickens. She is currently in school pursuing veterinary medicine. Kenna says she used to be a shy girl. Guess those days are long behind her. The song in the bonus video is Harry McClintock’s “Big Rock Candy Mountain”.
Welcome Lana Rhoades to Zishy. A couple months ago, she decided to drop her boyfriend in Chicago and make a name for herself in the LA porn world. Lana has stunning eyes and the sexual appetite of a bonobo.
Let’s not blame Jon. I bet this woman would be too much for any one person to handle. A tourist teenager, unaware of who Lana is or what she does, asked to take a photo with the captivating brunette. Lana obliged and gained a future fan. The Beach Boys’ “Don’t Worry Baby” is the song in the bonus video.
Natasha Legeyda won the genetic Olympics. Is it because she is Russian? Or is it because she is Italian? This inked-up beauty with the natural figure of an adult store mannequin swears she never even works out.
Natasha just keeps moving, constantly traveling and searching for happiness and adventure.
Veronica Weston likes to put on a good show. For the most part, I sat back and just documented her devious nature on this day. Veronica admits to being an exhibitionist of sorts. There may not be many people in the background of these shots, but I assure you there were plenty of eyebrows being raised around lifeguard tower number five.
The shoes she’s wearing are quite awkward to walk in, which makes Veronica’s cartwheel in the bonus video clip all the more impressive. If you can believe it, this cheeky blonde had the audacity to ask if she did a good job. Yes, I’d say Veronica Weston gets an A on her report card. Summer days, I will miss thee.
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.
