Don’t Thread On The Flowers

Somethings you have to get your head around when photographing young ladies and one of them is you are not going to get along with all of them. Women are from Venus and men are from Uranus. I find it strange that some models work all around the world with all sorts of photographers and yet are so naive and easily offended. I have a tendency to call tits tits and cunt cunt so when working with a new face I have to tell myself to go softly softly until I find out how the land lies. Here are 2 models who just about put up with my plain talking and were an absolute pleasure to have visit the Chateau de Vaughan. Definitely 2 of my favourites.

Dawn Of A New Era

Some more ropey sets taken around the time I started to switch to digital from film. I couldn’t afford one of the early DSLR’s so I was using point and shoot digital cameras that by modern day standards were far worse than the camera in your phone. White balance indoors was a real pain in the arse, still is mind you, so I was forever fine tuning in an attempt to get consistent results. The models must have wondered what the hell was going on. One minute I was shooting with a professional film camera, the next snapping away with little digital cameras with huge flashguns mounted on top. I took almost 30,000 snaps with these compacts before I could justify my first DSLR and regretfully consign my film cameras to the dustbin of history.

No Way Jose

Find and edit one favourite photo from each of the last 20 years! Come on boys and girls that would take me another 20 years to sort out! Anyway many of my early photos have been binned, and that reminds me I should be getting on with another cull before spring arrives. Why do I destroy old snaps? For one reason or another they are unusable so hanging on to them just takes up space. I may keep a couple for sentimental, historic, or even artistic reasons, but the great majority are worthless reminders of my lack of skill and ambition.

Playing Gooseberry

While rummaging through one of my backup hard drives I found these 2 contrasting models. In the old days I did an occasional movie shoot for other people of up-and-coming porn starlets. Before the action started I liked to take a few snaps with a compact camera for my own collection. The first set are just that, albeit rather poor snaps. The second set are from a housewife photo shoot, as I have indicated in the past, not one of my favourite subjects. Although the talent is completely different there is a common thread to both these sessions. The performances weren’t for me, I was just operating the camera.
