What's up with Modelling?
Probably not what you think. Here is a sneak peek into my shoot the other week with the very talented Alicia Fox - my first shoot ever with a woman. I think it's more natural and easier to be sensual with a female photographer.
So what is up with Modelling? Let me tell you. It was grey and cold. Think middle of winter cold. We shot this late in the afternoon in Lima, Peru, in a coastal suburb called Miraflores. You get covered in sand, freeze your ass off and then there's the staring. Everything from odd looks to creepy dudes taking pics on their iphones. And it's really hard to pull a good face sometimes. Most the time I feel really silly. But every now and then things just pull together. The sun hits a perfect way, combined with flashes, reflectors, artistic eyes and thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment... and it all seems worth it.
But is it reality? You decide.
