Whenever I shoot in a loft downtown, I get visions of owning my very own studio/work space, with a constant parade of models sunning themselves in front of my huge, perfect windows. Me effortlessly snapping away while gorgeous girls tumble around in the glow of the magic hour. It would mean less travel, less packing, and less hauling equipment up strange elevators. Granted, that’s why I have assistants, but it makes me feel mild pangs of guilt to watch them lugging gear in the LA heat.
We shot this in one of these jealousy-inspiring lofts, and this set utilized a bedroom that was bathed in that buttery, wonderful 3:00 pm dreaminess. Pairing awesome natural light with Shay, a model in full command of her powers, produces amazing results (see below). It was a challenge to pick the best shots because all of the frames were quality. Thanks a lot, Shay!
It was one of those afternoons that makes me feel very fortunate to do this job. It didn’t hurt that we had an awesome crew there: Shay of course, Willie T shooting video, artist Jim Mahfood sketching the whole thing…. and a cameo appearance by Bear. “Oh, such a perfect day,” Lou Reed sings, and even though that song is probably about heroin, I couldn’t agree more.
Shay “Beautifull” Maria.
This should be her legal name!
nice photos, hope we get some more of her in the future
We definitely will!
holy moly! nice fotos, good job!
like your work, keep it up!
Thank you Hans! Appreciate the compliments! <3
Permission to be the dog Cherie?
Haha… well, I think Shay would have to be the one to permit that. After all, she’d be the one cuddling her puppy.
looking good love
Amazing what a difference a good pair of stockings make.
I do love hosiery… just not a lot of opportunity to shoot them.
Definitely the best set since Sara Brinsfield. Nice work.
Thank you! We should do a Sara x Shay collaboration. But some heads might explode so maybe not.
Cherie, what makes you think I haven’t tried those already. Lets just say, the outcomes were not pleasant.
If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.
Damn, I always dream about having a women like that in my bed. Unfortunately, it’s always only a dream. At least I’ll always have these pics.
You and me both XD
You could always do like in Weird Science and create your perfect woman… or become a movie star. Or… pretend to be a photographer and lure hot chicks into your bed. Hey, works for me!
Thats actually not a bad idea
