For this next set with Kira we moved inside the location to utilize the studio space. She had these cool floral print shorts that looked awesome on her with a bikini top. With plenty of good light coming in I did what I feel I do best which is utilize these uv rays for the benefit of my photos. I loved how in some of the shots it seemed like the light was just wrapping around her. Take a look for yourself and hope you enjoy them! And thanks to Kira for taking the time to drive out from Long Island to meet with me in the city to shoot. Let’s do it again soon!
Sometimes all it takes is a glance through my hard drives to remind me to stay on top of things. Between all the traveling and shooting I have been sleeping on getting out some good stuff. Case in point some photos I shot with Kira when out in N.Y.C. I had done one post before on my Hundreds blog that had the famous building on Bowery and Spring as the back drop but I still had some great photos remaining. So over the next couple of weeks I am going to make it a point to get as caught up as I can with posts for all of you starting today. I shot these at my friend Mike’s place, it is one of the few locations in the Bowery area that has a backyard. Trying to keep Kira entertained we had gotten her a lollipop to improve with during our shoot. I think you will like what we came up with.
Continuing my shoot with Jessie we decided to gather our things and head off the pier to see what else we can shoot. See the thing I love about working with Jessie is that she is spontaneous and down to just try things. Sometimes when working with a model like this it makes the shoots that much more fun and exciting. So we went down to the boardwalk and checked out a couple of shops but rather then me talk about it just check out the photos below.
Fall is starting to creep in and give us a reminder that summer is officially over. That may be so,but for me I still have plenty of images from the past few months to share with all of you. I am hoping they will serve as a reminder to how much fun we all had and how we can look forward to next year for even better memories. I remember going down to the Santa Monica Pier with Jessie to shoot with my new camera I had just got. I loved how this set turned out with the faded blue back drop working with Jessie’s look and outfit. Something soft and subtle about it that to me is summer. Well enjoy the images and stay tuned for more!
For this final set with Natalia she had mentioned there was a rooftop area available for shooting. Now while I love the setting of a bedroom I do love to try to shoot outdoors with a model when the opportunity arises. So we headed up there with her wearing a bikini and some tennis shoes to shoot away. I was fortunate that the day had some scattered clouds not making the sunshine too harsh on her. She is a pretty lively person to shoot with and I think it shows in her photos. Natalia genuinely has fun doing this and at the end of the day that is what it is all about….. fun. So thanks Natalia for taking the time out to shoot with me and hopefully we can do it again!

For this next set with Natalia we shot in her living room. Behind her couch was a awesome black and white back photo of N.Y.C. that I felt could serve as a backdrop. Which made me think that these photos just might work out as black and white images alone. So we shot away on her couch and did some in front of her sliding doors to use the light as I like to do sometimes. I was really digging the contrast of her dark hair and light skin to the settings and was more then happy with the outcome of this set.
Some people you come across in life just have that fire. The fire of life,to succeed and to enjoy doing what they want to do. I say all of that because that is what comes to mind with this recent day of photos set with Natalia. She had reached out to me about shooting and after figuring out our schedules we set up a day at her flat in downtown L.A. Immediately I could tell she enjoys modeling. And when you put that with a person like myself who loves taking photos then the results are bound to be good. We started off this day shooting in her bedroom. Usually I rent locations out but there is something to be said about shooting a model in her actual room. Something kind of personable and intimate. Needless to say she came off very comfortable in the pics which I loved.Well enough talking and enjoy this first set of Natalia!

I came across a set of photos I shot with my buddy Meagan a few months back. I almost forgot how awesome these looked with the lighting and the pantyhose she was wearing. Figured it would be a shame to let them go unseen so here they are to share with all of you so enjoy!
