As part of that shoot I had with Romi & Shannety early this year, I also shot some portraits of Romi in latex, leather and lingerie. She brought the leather and lace outfit, I added the black latex body suit from Catalyst Latex and the ballet heels from Kassiopeya from my own collection to the mix. Elem did an awesome job at the makeup. The red & blue color gels on my studio strobes did the rest.
I finished my photography year on a high with the shoot with Jolien. And I think I started 2018 on an even higher note with these 2: I am over the moon to have had Shannety and Romi in the studio together for a series of lingerie and latex duo shots. They’re back after the awesome reunion shoot of November last year. And we had just as much fun now as back in November.
Joined by the lovely makeup artist Elem, who did an awesome job btw, and with a clear vision for the latex pics, we worked until these rolled off the press. And we had a lot of fun in the process.
In case you’re wondering: the latex bodies are designed and manufactured by Catalyst Latex.
I’ve finished 2017 with a bang: working with the incredibly talented model Jolien is always a blast. It had been a while since we’ve seen each other and since we talked. So we had some catching up to do before, after and during the shoot. Worked all afternoon in a very relaxed atmosphere and turned out a couple of nice shots.
We did all that with the help of Shari, a very good make-up artist that Jolien brought on set. It was very nice to meet her and work with her. I’m hoping to collaborate with Shari some more in 2018. And with Jolien too, of course.
2017 was quite a good year for my photography. I decided to only work on TfP basis and only on projects I wanted to work on. It meant less photos, more time for fun, better planning, more learning and cooler photos. And I had the good fortune to meet a very talented make-up artist that I get along with very well.
The result is a 4 minute video reel with the highlights of my collaborations with model Shannety and make-up artist Elem. Well, actually, this video covers about a year and a half of working with these 2 lovely ladies. But who’s complaining?
I would like to thank everyone who lent us a helping hand on our shoots.
It’s getting cold outside and the days are getting shorter. The perfect time for a throwback to a photo shoot I did this summer. Deeze Beeze and I met in the botanical gardens of the University of Gent. Sorta hidden in the heart of the city, they have very beautiful green houses–where photo shoots are not allowed–and nice garden around it. It is a great place to shoot though. Perfect for latex and feathers, and a model with unicorn hair.
I had my friend Lizzy in the studio over the summer.
Actually, she had asked me if I wanted to do a photshoot for her friend Yana as a birthday present. She said she would love to shoot with me after I finished working with Yana. Lizzy knows I like working with her, so I guess she knew I would say yes to shooting with her.
She said she would arrange a make-up artist. She introduced me to Nadia. Nadia is a talented make-up artist I had already met a couple of times but never had the pleasure of working with her. She did an awesome job on Lizzy’s make-up. And both ladies surprised me with a truckload of outfits. Nadia styled Lizzy both in the outfits provided by MOOD-S and well as in some of the latex fashion from my collection.
I was an absolute joy to work with both ladies. I hope to work with Nadia and Lizzy again in the near future. I would really like that.
Remember last month’s posts about shooting lingerie with Shannety and Kyara? Well, since I had both ladies in the studio together, I asked them to do a quick session together in latex. We found matching dresses in my collection: Kyara is wearing a dress by House of Harlot, Shannety is wearing one of her favorite dresses from Kinkykex. Makeup by Elem again.
There’s nothing wrong with combining latex fashion with regular clothes. It’s a combination you more and more in mainstream media and even on the catwalk of fashion shows of haute couture designers. And if they can do it, so can I. I had my muse Shannety in the studio earlier this year and we shot cool portraits.
Nanoe is definitely sweeter and nicer that her top leads to believe. We had a lot of fun back in February on our 1st collaboration together. We had agreed to do a series of portraits and then some fun stuff. I will stick to the fun stuff. The portraits are nice. Nanoe has a very pretty face after all. But the fun stuff is really fun, and way cooler that the portraits we did.
When I asked Nanoe what latex outfit she wanted to wear for the last session of our shoot, she said she wanted to wear the kitten ears. And that is exactly what happened: she wore the Larissa Latex Harness Dress from Pandora Deluxe with a belt from Mico Couture and the Kitten Ears from Lady Lucie.
