Reeeal Good. Promise.

Baths - Lovely Bloodflow
Kain, Bergsma - I think you two will particularly like this track.

How to Dress Well - You Won't Need Me Where I'm Goin'
Super lo- fi recording. The whole albums is done this way which I really like and find interesting. Makes me wish I was in a car on a road trip driving past sunsets in the midwest. Kind of sounds like Maxwell going indie, recording in your bathroom through a tapedeck on your boombox. Or a low quality Bon Iver mix. Either way, real good.

Snip Snip Part II

When it comes to the finished product, a model is only as good as their photographer. Which in this case, and luckily for me most cases, makes me amazing due to little effort on my part. For I am only part of a whole and it is with much gratitude that I am always met more than halfway when it comes to shooting with Cris. She can take my simple poses, with simple lighting, simple background and a mere 15-20 minutes of shooting and turn them into something aesthetically beautiful and alluring as the images above. She amazes me. I love it when she gets all artsy and shit. Much love girl xo

Hurry up and get naked!

Gary Breckheimer is one of my favorite photographers. His work always brings out a twinge of jealousy and envy in me, but in a good way of course. It's always some muttering like how did he think of that, how did he pull that off, or I wish I was modeling for that particular shot, etc.

His work just does it for me.

I first came across some of his work almost 3 or 4 years ago and have been checking up on him for new work ever since. Finally, I got to become one of those models in that particular shot. And not only did I get  the pleasure of modeling for Gary, but I got the pleasure of modeling with a beautiful woman as well, Miss Meghan Claire. Frankly, I think she's fucking hot and being able to get naked with her was a very nice bonus treat. And, she's also a great model. ;)

So yes, we woke up at 6 am and braved the early LA, January weather. One of the most exciting parts about this was that Gary just happened to be here on vacation (normally a resident of NYC), and well there's just nothing more thrilling than getting naked on your own stomping grounds.

What's that you say? We're going to shoot in front of The Vista next....7 am rush hour traffic at the junction of Hollywood Blvd and Sunset.

Yes. Yes we are.


Hmmm.... 5th and Main St with all the pedestrians and peddlers and crack heads around... And in front of an already open diner with the cooks in the window?

Yes, Yes we are.

And in front of the doors no less...

And the 1st Street Metro Station escalator -- listening for the incoming trains trying to avoid rushes of people. Nevermind the camera's at the metro station right above the biggie.

Or tied and bound on the roof of a parking garage (in front of the Walt Disney Concert Hall)...

Or Elysian Park...

Or even on a major street, basically in my own backyard...

It just went from thrill to thrill and I absolutely loved it. There wasn't an ounce of privacy no matter what location we went to. It was gorilla style all the way and I personally can't wait til next time.

Hugs and Love to Gary and Meghan <3

^ Check him out. ;)
