the Enchanting Miss M.

Miss M. is enchanting. There’s no other word for it. Quick to smile and easy to laugh with, our lovely Miss is also about the¬†fittest person I know.

That came in handy for the gymnastics that can sometimes be posing for a boudoir shoot!¬†Lucky she brought Mr. M along to help… for the first half anyway.

After some gorgeous steaminess in the studio, we headed out on location. On the way, we stumbled across an excavator someone had generously left lying around – so Miss August just HAD to make an appearance…

You can probably tell, we had an absolute blast on this shoot. Enjoy the gorgeousness!


The Zen of Photography

If Weddings are the bread & butter, and Fashion/Boudoir/Glamour is the rock star. Landscape’s then, would have to be the Zen of photography.

There’s something enchanting about really slowing things down. I never (never!) shoot with a tripod working with people, there’s too much happening too quickly. So it’s nice to take a break from the mayhem sometimes and shoot past f4.0.

I’m not really patient by nature. More a duck on a pond – everything looks calm on the surface, but the voices in my head are…. you get the idea, lol;-)

So, for me landscapes are perhaps even more a therapy session because it forces me to becalm the maelstrom and concentrate on just a few things rather than the whole box & dice. It’s also nice when that “hard work” gets a little notice – there’s a few award winners in the shots below (he says off-the-cuff-buffing-his-nails….):)

For the most part it’s setting up the tripod, checking how much depth of field I can squeeze outta f16, and waiting for some good light to arrive. That gives me time to plan what the final image could look like (yes, lying with photoshop is far too acceptable these days…). See! Completely different to photographing people. (Except the glacier shot below, that was 2sec of vantage point, the quickest setup-and-compose you’ve ever seen, and shot from a tiny/wobbly seaplane at 200 feet in Alaska. Not much zen right then!)

Enjoy a change of pace.

the sensual Miss V.

Sensuality draws you in.

There’s an aching want to the moment.

It can’t be taught or posed, it’s got to be felt.

Our gorgeous Miss for this week walked into the studio as graceful as someone in touch with their own sensuality can be. Every motion was a study in elegance, an almost feline languidness. You can imagine, then, when we decided to go a little dark and moody as a theme, just how sexy noir can be…
