Mob O’ Models In Woodstock

January 16th, 2017

D70 5720 DxO 400x241 Mob O Models In Woodstock

After Brooke Lynne and I spent a couple days shooting we went to Woodstock, NY, to meet up with my old friend, Dave Rudin, and eight more models who Dave had invited to join him to celebrate the 2oth anniversary of the first time he photographed a nude at a workshop in that iconic town. That’s a photo of all the models posing at the site of that first shoot by Dave R. Here’s Dave R’s post about this shoot:  https://figuresofgrace.wordpress.com/2015/09/02/woodstock-more-from-my-20th-anniversary-celebration/

The lovely models are (in no particular order): Blueriver DreamErica JayClaudineBrooke LynneKelsey DylanStevie MacaroniNadine TheresaDane St. Clair and Elisa Dandelion.

We all went out to a location in the Catskills to shoot. Dave R did a bunch of photos with all nine models, but then we each worked with smaller groups of models. In these photos I was working with Brooke Lynne, Blueriver Dream and Kelsey Dylan.

More Brooke in the Catskills

January 11th, 2017

Brooke Lynne and I worked together in the Catskills for two days. These are from the second day of shooting.

A beautiful place, a beautiful, highly skilled model. It’s hard to miss with that combination.

Back With Brooke

January 6th, 2017

d70_4509_dxo

In August 2015 I was still trying to fully recover from my heath crisis in January. But I was feeling well enough to go on a bit of a photo expedition to the wilds of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York.

d70_4581_dxo

This was an especially good trip because I was joined by my favorite model, the lovely and talented Brooke Lynne. We spent a couple days exploring locations in those mountains and making some photos.

d70_4643_dxo

If only Brooke lived nearer to me instead of in the frozen north of Minnesota I’m sure we would work together much more often. But every shoot with Brooke is a treat and never fails to generate some more photos that I can be proud of.

d70_4684_dxo

These were all from our first day of shooting. More to come from the second day.

A New Model Gets Wet

January 2nd, 2017

d70_4227_dxo

Well, it’s now 2017 and I’m still editing shoots from the middle of 2015. I seem to be slowly making progress, though. I might actually get to only being one year behind soon.

d70_4253_dxo

This was a shoot with a new model, Hayden, getting her “baptism” in working with me in my favorite local waterfalls.

d70_4324_dxo

I enjoyed what was happening when I got some spray on the lens, so I just worked with it for a while.

d70_4328_dxo

And my model did a fine job, considering it was her first experience with posing in the challenging environment of a waterfall.

d70_4330_dxo

I hope you are all enjoying the new year and that it will bring peace and happiness to all of us.

More With an Old Friend

December 29th, 2016

d70_3554_dxo

I’ve already posted a few photos from this shoot with an old friend. We did the shoot to mark her 50th birthday. She first modeled for me back in the 1980s and is still a remarkably beautiful woman. She’s also one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

d70_3561_dxo

For this shoot we went to a place that has special memories for both of us. And we had a great time.

d70_3855_dxo

If that photo above looks familiar it might be because I already shared another from the same spot. The other one was published in French PHOTO magazine last year. I still love the one that French PHOTO chose, but I like this one a lot too.

d70_3929_dxo

And just one more with my friend sort of looking like she is ready to become the sacrifice to some ancient gods.

d70_4033_dxo

Happy New Year everyone. I’ll be back in 2017.

This is the End

December 22nd, 2016

d70_3339_dxo

I hope you haven’t gotten tired of seeing my photos from the Smokey Mountains. If you have, you won’t have to see them any more after today. This is the last post I’ll be doing from that great shoot.

d70_3366_dxo

It’s a nice problem to have when a shoot goes so well that you have a ton of good photos to chose from. I’m usually happy to get 4 or 5 shots that I’m happy with from a day of shooting. This trip to my favorite mountains with this great crew of models consistently produced at least 5 times that many photos each day.

d70_3399_dxo

On this final day of the trip Nadine and Lilith kept the hits coming. I can’t thank them enough for their great work.

d70_3432_dxo

But that’s all for this set of photos. I hope you enjoyed seeing them half as much as I enjoyed working with these beautiful models in my favorite mountains to produce them.

More with Lilith and Nadine

December 19th, 2016

d70_3170_dxo

Lilith Noir and Nadine Stevens did a great job finding places to pose around this pretty waterfall. There are almost too many good photos from this day.

d70_3208_dxo

Such a nice problem to have so many photos to chose from. Still more to come in the next post.

Different Day; Different Model

December 16th, 2016

d70_2937_dxo

On the final day of my shoot in the Smokey Mountains I was joined by a lovely local model, Lilith Noir.

d70_3064_dxo

We returned to that beautiful little waterfall from the day before to see what else we could shoot there.

d70_3069_dxo

Nadine Stevens was still with me on this final day and she and Lilith did a fantastic job working at this spot. More to come in future posts.

Yet Another Waterfall in the Smokey Mountains

December 12th, 2016

d70_2699_dxo

When the arrival of other people at Triple Falls ended our shooting there, it did not end our work for that day. We just went to another more out-of-the-way waterfall nearby and continued our work.

d70_2709_dxo

Stevie Macaroni and Nadine Stevens continued to do fantastic work and we got quite a few more photos at this lovely hidden spot.

d70_2716_dxo

As you can see from all the recent posts, this trip to the Smokey Mountains was very productive. One of my most successful trips ever.

d70_2860_dxo

It’s hard to miss with such a tremendous crew of great models in one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Thank you, ladies.

d70_2873_dxo

This isn’t the end. More to come in the next post.

More Beauty At Triple Falls

December 9th, 2016

d70_2490_dxo

Triple Falls was an almost inexhaustible location. If people hadn’t started showing up I think we could have shot there all day and never run out of ideas.

d70_2576_dxo

Nadine Stevens and Stevie Macaroni were wonderful, working hard at finding creative poses to work with the amazing scenes.

d70_2629_dxo

This is the last post I’ll be making from Triple Falls. But there is still more to come from this trip to the Smokey Mountains.
