Maxim En Espanol's Aug 2012 Model !Man, Anyone feel the crazy heatwave in Toronto today ? Strangely enough, perhaps there had been a reason why ?Maxim En Espanol's Aug 2012 Model !1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well somewhere out in the ether-nets, something out of the ordinary was announced ; Maxim Espanol's Aug 2012 cover model and feature will be Susan Coffey... Styling by PRETTYDEADLYSTYLZ and Makeup by Jeya Singh ... of course photographed by yours truly. * cough cough *
Earlier today; I received an email from Brad ( webmaster of Susan Coffey's fansite ) about Maxim Espanol releasing the preview for the cover but I wasnt able to attend to it because I was in the middle of something --- I was on my way out of the parking lot till I finally caught a glimpse of the cover from Susan's facebook fanbpage. Wow . Who would've thought eh ? Lots of things were running in and out of my head. Feelings of excitement as well as other mixed thoughts resonated -- Could this internets update be the result of this blistering heatwave we had in Toronto ?

RESPECT. THE. MODELS !!!Ok so it seems I'll have to do that too.RESPECT. THE. MODELS !!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'll keep it simple : read the title.
I've been doing a bit of nude photography these last months and even though the vast majority of the people who visited, faved and commented my photos were totally fine, there's always a small fraction of weirdos/perverts/wathever and that really pisses me off.
I'll say that once : NUDE/EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT PORN !
and everyone have to BEHAVE PROPERLY and RESPECT THE MODELS
you can act as a dickhead with me, attack me, critique me, send me weird messages, BUT... one more time... Don't touch the models.
If you want to write some kind of pervert comment, keep in mind that nor the model, nor the photographer, nor even the people who truly appreciate the photo will like your comment.
You want porn ? Fine. There are plenty of website for that on the net, or even photo galleries here on dA that are more about porn than about nude. Use them.
If you're not able to understand that "nude model" does not mean "slut

Pin Up Week: How to achieve Pin Up HairstylesA large part of pin-up photography is based on the models hair style, so I pass the Pin Up Week reigns over to my better half `sodalicious as she educates us all on how to achieve a few basic pin up hairstyles....Pin Up Week: How to achieve Pin Up Hairstyles6 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In recognition of Pin-Up Week, here are several retro hairstyles along with a How To for each. So if you've ever wanted to achieve the perfect pomp, rockin' rolls, or the classic beehive, take note!
First I will write about the assorted instruments & hair utensils you may need to attain all three looks. Depending on the look you want, you'll need: bobby pins [LOTS of them!], hair rollers, hairspray, rat tail comb, pomade, curling iron, soft-bristled brush, and hair accessories [clip-in flowers, bandana, etc].
Hair rolls are what most people think of when they think of the vintage 1940s hair styles. If your hair is at least shoulder length, you can achieve rolls! Give it a try - it takes some time to dry your

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

Tate Hemlock . (Everyone Please Read)Tate Hemlock is literally the first photographer I shot with when I first got into the industry over 2 years ago. Ever since then, he has been my #1. He's NEVER made me feel uncomfortable and he's respected me since day 1.Tate Hemlock . (Everyone Please Read)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Which is why I don't understand why people have been thinking wrong of him. Are they stupid ? Tate has always been there for me. ALWAYS. I always turned to him when photographers would ask me to shoot with them. Tate would would let me know whether they were good news or not. If he's never heard of them, he would research them & let me know .
My point is, Tate has always looked out for me, & his other models. He always will. I have spoken to him about anything & everything . Tate is not a bullshitter & will always give me his honest thoughts. He's not just a photographer, he's my BEST FRIEND .
Maybe people really ARE stupid because I'm the only model (of his) that hasn't done ANY nudes & I STILL shoot with him. I strictly say I won't do any nudes & he respects that.

I'm really busy at work and I've not so much time to spend here at the moment.
I hope to come back in business on dA really soon with new works to share. I'm planning some new projects... but I need more time to release them. My photo-magazine absorbes all my efforts and it remains few time to organize in my daily life.
Anyway...sometimes I find two minutes to open dA on the art-gallery's pc. I browse the photography main page to look out something new, something inspiring and deserving. But... really often I stumble upon questionable photos. I think lot of you have just intend what I'm talking about...
I mean... years ago, when I left dA, the artistic nude category was a little bit more selected. Surely, lot of people posted pics that had little to do with Art, but there was more attention to avoid porn and exhibitionism. The year I left started a different approach to this... maybe more liberal, less "rigorous"..uhm..I don't know. The fact is that, j

I now have an Etsy shop where I will sell specialized, signed and unsigned prints. The reason why I chose Etsy is that through it, I can specialize, customize and control the quality of the prints. I can also send a little written note on the side to the buyer too. Make it more special and personal.
If you guys want to support me, this is the best way right now! I'm giving this a try. If it goes well, I will have more prints and more options available. For now I'm only trying it with the photos I did with photographer Ben Samson. In the future if it goes well, you may see all of my photos there available for purchase.
I send you all warm regards in this cold season, and will see you around!

Mission: Photograph the pageant pictures for the Regional Hooters Pageant.
Goal: Offer something unique to Hooters and the women in the Pageant. Give them something other than, the normal pageant pictures.
The situation actually turned out great this year. I had a space that allowed me to have privacy and was next to the trailer the women where changing in. The previous year we had issues because it is a outdoor event and a lot of the "fans" tried to mingle with the contestants. So we had the perfect spot. We were also able to use the district managers mustang as a prop so that was really cool. The soft box is boomed up front. Always remember, especially when shooting outside, to bring something to weigh down the boom. Too easy for it to get blown over, even by the slightest gust of wind. The second light (gelled with pu
