Icing the Models

May 20th, 2009

D20 7557 Icing the Models It’s cold today. And windy. And cloudy. And rainy. Great weather for photos, unless you happen to be a nude model. Then it’s bad news. But I work with the very best, bravest, toughest figure models in the world. And they proved that again today.

We met Montana model Tinytina at 8 a.m. and headed to a location she had chosen for us on Flathead Lake. It was totally exposed to the wind and to the rain that was falling. It was also beautiful in a very different way from what we had been seeing up in Glacier National Park.

Tinytina is a great model and a great person. It was a pleasure to meet and work with her. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a model in northwest Montana. You couldn’t do better.

I contacted 14 Montana models through Model Mayhem to find someone local to work with on this trip. Only three responded. Two of those said they didn’t do nude work. That left Tinytina. What a great stroke of luck to have connected with her for this one day.

It was a short shoot. Each model took a couple turns braving the cold and wind. And I couldn’t resist doing a shot with all three of them together, as you can see above. In more reasonable temperatures we would have spent several hours shooting at this great location, but that would have been far beyond a safe level of exposure on a day like today. In a very short period of time we were able to make a number of fine photographs.

And below is a photo just to show what the glamorous exciting world of figure modeling looks like between shots.

Thank you ladies for all the suffering you do for my art. I really, really appreciate it. You are the best.
