    3774 - 3779 Harriot
    Cass:
    As you might have wondered, Abby and I tossed up whether to shoot Harriot as she has a real problem with acne on her face. Absolutely spunky as babe, hot bod, great boobs, swell personality, but blatantly aggressive acne on her face. We didn't think, when we weighed up the whole equation, that it was reason enough not to let us all rejoice in the splendor of her obvious beauty. And at the end of the day, that's what it comes down to. Why are you a member here? Because you wanted to see real people! Right on!

    Abby: I had some probs with the light on this shoot, and ended up making the classic amateur mistake without even realising it: slow shutter speed with fill flash, when there is a lot of ambient (bad, bad, bad!). In my defense, I was using a particularly shit flash system... In hindsight, I shoulda stuck with natural light...


    3780 - 3842 Lizzie, Morgan & Collette
    Abby:
    Luckily, these girls hit it off (sometimes when we get a group together, they don't, and it can show). We still had to come up with activities that show off the gals, and that's why you hear me bleating about it all the time on the boards. This shoot worked ok. Collette loved to chase the ducks. Why does Lizzie always seem to have a beer in her hand?

    Cass: We saw a little octopus in the water and puttered around in the dinghy before making camp for a little bit on a secluded beach. The whole houseboat we had for our shoots was totally decked out. It had everything...including a little shower. The girls were freezing by this stage. The sun was setting and they'd been in the water for a good few hours. We thought we'd be nice and put them in the shower together to warm each other up. Check out Colette's foot in the last group pic - she is SUCH a poser!


    3843 - 3858 Belinda
    Elvaar:
    So Abby is coming to town to shoot and she says "come up with about 40 shoot ideas for us". Being that it's Autumn I figure what could be more natural than a girl frolicking in the fallen leaves? So I get out in the street and grovel with my shovel to collect bagfuls of the things and what does Abby do? Tip them out on the freakin' floor and shoot indoors.

    Jamie: For Belinda's shoot Elvaar collected a bunch of autumn leaves and put them in a plastic garbage bag. Some of the leaves must have still been wet. When we arrived almost all the leaves were dampish, and we couldn't have our beautiful Belinda rolling around in cold damp leaves! We sat around considering how the hell you dry a large bag of damp leaves.

    Ok, the concept was this - we get a blow heater, pile them in a corner, and then let the heater blow the dry ones to the back, leaving the damp behind to get more heat. Well it kinda worked. The blow heater dried them while I sat there turning them over, and to top it all off I got to clean up the mess twice - once after drying the leaves and once after we had Belinda rolling around in them. Anyone would think that I'm a cleaner! :)


    3859 - 3879 Elise
    Jamie:
    We went for a trip to Melbourne and by god was it cold. But as soon as Elise got into the room the place heated up. I had only talked to Elise on the phone and was expecting someone entirely different than the person that I opened the door too. Elise was so small and so cute that she was better that what I had imagined. Elise can still fit in to children clothes. Not long after the shoot Elise joined us on the boards and chatted almost everyday. Everybody fell so head over heels in love with her that we were forced to push her shoot forward.
  • Sun 10th Oct 2004 | Behind the Scenes

    3669 - 3690 Gretel
    Cass:
    Oh boy! This shoot was so funny. We went to quite a public beach, and at first I was shocked that Gretel and Marta agreed as they seemed a little conservative. Man, I couldn't have been more wrong. During Gretel's shoot, all the navy boys were out training, and decided to come in for a closer look. I freaked thinking Gretel would spin out. Wrong again! She loved it! Loved the attention, and loved being handled by a bunch of muscley navy babes. Lucky girl!

    Abby: Again with the fill flash, and I think it works really well here. I was up to my waist in the water, and Cass was holding the boat so Gretel did not fall over with the waves as they came in. Those Navy dudes on their training exercise scared the bejesus out of me. That's their boss on the ducky coming back to make sure there's no danger to national security. Not sure where the crusty old fishermen went, but they were nowhere to be found after the shoot...


    3691 - 3720 Bron
    Jamie:
    Bron is one of those real cute shorties. We had to get her to stand on a rock to be near the same height as me. We took this gorgeous young lady to a secluded beach. We asked her if she didn't mind being arrested for indecent exposure as we drove down past a police academy and got out to hike the rest of the way to the beach. On the beach a few people sun baked topless and an old man got around in a thong (eeieew). We'll Bron is a trooper and smiled all the way through.

    Abby: This is the same beach where we shot Kellie (backstage 34), and Sonja (backstage 37). That damn waterfall was dry every time we came to this location, but we were lucky with a trickle this time. If only we coulda gotten there in Spring, it woulda been gushing and extra-pretty. Or maybe this was Spring, cos I remember Bron being cold... Fil-flash for the stuff in full sun, then natch light for the stuff under the trees. Gosh, doesn't Jamie look young?


    3721 - 3745 Jamie and Gabrielle
    Jamie:
    Gabrielle and I got on like a house on fire. In fact, we did set the house on fire. It was so hot in that room under the lights and then making the hot sexy love, we were really sweating heaps. So much so that we could slip and slide all over each other. Part way through the shoot the water main outside on the street burst. We had to call a stop while we waited for them to fix it because it was making lots of noise. We should have gone running under it to get cooled off.

    Abby: Hey, there's a shoot in that! This was probably our best GG pairing up to date. No matter how hard we try (nor how many times, it seems) we can't come close. It was a flash of inspiration Cass and I had late one night driving home from a shoot. I don't remember who our original plan to shoot Gabrielle with was, but I am glad we ditched it. This park stuff was shot on the corner of Broadway and City Rd, near the heart of Sydney.

    VidDude: I had wanted to do a hand-holding shoot in a public Park for ages. Originally I wanted to do it in a park that coincidentally is near our current Melbourne studios, but this one was filmed in Sydney, so I figured this park, near my local Supermarket, was almost as good. Unfortunately it was a bit of a grey day, and there also happened to be an entire primary school swimming meet on at the pool in the Park. Luckily, there was no nudity in these scenes to frighten them.

    If you look at the video, you'll see the traffic going past in the shot of them leaning on the tree. I wish I'd moved the camera a little over to the side and blocked the traffic out. That's my only regret, as the rest of the shoot was brilliant. Jamie and Gabrielle were perfectly natural together. And it was coming back from this shoot that we offered the job of working for us to Jamie. Another devilishly smart move by us.

    Cass: To tell you the truth, I didn't really see much of the action during this shoot. Gabrielle's room was kinda pokey and I couldn't fit in with Vid Dude and Abby plus the two girls, so I sat in the living room and patted the cat, and read my book. I was there however, for the whole pre sex shoot where they went walking in the park. That was cool. I noticed that the two of them clicked immediately and I even began to wonder if they realised that the rest of us were even there.


    3746 - 3755 Marjorie
    Abby:
    Another of Elvaar's brilliant ideas, the early-morning-lolling-on-the-bed look. Like all his others, this one worked perfectly (tho for some reason I was skeptical at the time, again, as I often am). I guess the hose must have been broken that day...


    3756 - 3761 Alexandria
    Cass:
    Alexandria arrived during our Russian crusade. For some reason we got this massive influx of Russian chicks lining up to get their gears off for us. Awesome! Alexandria rented a little unit out the back of a families house in Sydney, and had the most incredible spot in the sun. She had the most intense little dog though. One I was hanging to strangle or fling across the room. And this squealing little guinea pig in a box in the kitchen that the dog was intent on joining with. Hmmm? Good shoot anyway.


    3762 - 3773 Alicia
    Jamie:
    I didn't know Alicia before she got pregnant. But I sat in on this set with her. All I could think of was, how could you shave your pubic hair while you're that pregnant you couldn't see what your doing?! Alicia told me that it's really getting to be a problem at the moment. Understandable.

  • Sun 03rd Oct 2004 | Behind the Scenes

    3564 - 3614 Annabel and Briana
    Cass:
    Phew! Again, a real tricky one. Briana did such a confident job on her own, and little Annabel did such a great job with Jamie, that we thought we'd made a heavenly match. The truth was however, that Briana had never even kissed another girl, let alone licked her pussy, and Annabel sensed her tension and reciprocated in the same fashion by sorta clamming up. In a way, it was kinda cute, how they both felt so nervous, but for us, at the ready, expecting roaring solid passion, it was a bit disappointing. What's more, we hoped to hit the beach with the two girls, and it started pissing with rain. Oh well, you do what you can? We made the most of a conflicting situation, and hope you can do the same.

    VidDude: I did like my last minute idea of them getting out of the rain, as opposed to the sunbathing on the beach we had originally planned. The whole towel-drying sensuality angle was quite cool. And we had to drive around and around to find a good location for the exterior shots, which eventually ended up being a park next to the harbour, where many very expensive private yachts were moored.


    3615 - 3631 Kate E
    Cass:
    I had no idea that Kate E had the potential to be such a flirtatious and vivacious little naughty. She seemed so cute and sweet at her interview, and although I was obviously pleased that she was more than willing to do explicit poses for our beloved members, I didn't imagine she'd be so lolly mouthed when she so kindly wrote to us all. The coolest thing about Kate is that you could tell she genuinely got her kicks from her shoots with us. I think that rocks!


    3632 - 3653 Helena
    Elvaar:
    I remember this was a hot day and we parked the car too far away and had to carry all the flash gear up a hill. Helena had just kicked out her psycho flatmate (jeez, do you blame him? Look at her!) so we were on notice that he could storm in at any moment and may be dangerous. Those are not the easiest conditions to work under, but fortunately Abby knows several martial arts including bok choi, tai chi and origami so I felt quite safe. Anyway she still ranks, in my opinion, among the most naturally beautiful of all models on the site. Not Abby, the model.


    3654 - 3668 Annabel Redux
    Jamie:
    It was a happy reunion for both me and Annabel after not seeing each other since our girl-girl shoot in December '02. Nearly a six months later we got to catch up over a few beers, a smoke, and a photo shoot. Annabel's been really getting into the rave scene now, owning a couple of turntables and a mixer. She was delighted to play us one of her tapes that she had mixed. Abby tried not to look disgusted but you could see her relief when the tape finished. I think we'll just stick to Madonna.


  • Sun 03rd Oct 2004 | Behind the Scenes

    3564 - 3614 Annabel and Briana
    Cass:

  • Sun 26th Sep 2004 | Behind the Scenes

    3465 - 3473 Casey Redux
    Jamie:
    Casey was cool to do insertions and so we decided well shoot it. We pulled out our dildo kit and let Casey pick and choose. I think she was a little shocked with the size of some of them so she went for the small still great, "lady finger". Then we blasted Madonna and went on our merry little way.

    We love Casey at AW HQ. She's such a funny girl as you will see. Instead of us telling jokes to her she was telling them to us and had us rolling around on the ground laughing. It's girls like Casey that makes our job even better than it is.

    Um, Casey I believe that is a dildo not a knife.


    3474 - 3492 Kellie
    Abby:
    Cass and I took Kellie to an awesome little back beach of the famous Manly in Sydney. Mid afternoon on a cloudy but warm summer weekday, it was almost totally deserted, and of course Cass went for a swim while I shot Kellie. We went up in the hills above the beach for the bulk of the shoot, some quintessential Aussie bush there.

    Cass: We're lucky we shot her when we did, because she's so damn hot, and when we immediately called her in for a redux, she was gone. She's in Asia some where now on her big O.E. Good for her. I think I mentioned it in her shoot bio, but on the day of her shoot there was a couple having a D & M (deep and meaningful) on the rocks down on the beach just near where we were shooting. The girl seemed to be having some emotional issues and they were talking it through. When her boyfriend went to give her a hug he noticed up as he was facing in our direction as he squeezed his girl. The girlfriend was obviously pleased that he gave her an extra prolonged hug and started getting all fuzzy and schmoozie, but at the same time slightly distracted. You can imagine the venom she spat at him when she turned and busted him gawking straight up at the gorgeous Kellie. Busted!


    3493 - 3508 Becs
    Cass:
    Bec's was bloody hard one. Don't be mislead by that natural vibrant smile. She was a nightmare to get smiling. I was horribly exhausted by the end of it, and totally out of crappy jokes to get her laughing. Ended up having to flash my tits behind Abby's back to get her to show her pearly whites. All the same it was good fun and especially nice to be hanging out in such a serene location. That's Sydney city in the background, you can juuuuust see the Bridge.


    3509 - 3518 Candii
    Abby:
    So I had this wacky idea of doing a trad glam porn shoot, and Candii insisted on wearing a wig on her shoot or it was a no-go, so I gave it a go in this retro office dócor. I got a friend who specicialises in glam shoots to style her for me. Dunno if it works, but it was fun!


    3519 - 3424 Marta and Gretel
    Abby:
    What a whirlwhind day this was. Cass and I took Marta and Gretel to a deserted secluded beach we had found on a previous shooting expidition. Of course, when we rocked up, there were fisherman fulling in nets and stuff. We tried to fake them out by waiting, but they looked like they had a lot to do, and the girsl were getting braver, so we just started shooting (Marta solo, first, see below). Then Gretel in the boat (coming in backstage 36), then them together, before we left to go home.

    There was this weird square rock-pool, totally overgrown with barnacles, perhaps somone's old wading pool? It was filled with soft sand and very clean, so we chose it for the shoot of them together. Pairs of backpackers are so easy to do these kinds shoots with, I can almost hold the shutter button down at 8 FPS, and everything going to be good stuff! As I was shooting in full sun, however, I had to use fill-flash, and the poor thing could not keep up with my usual shooting speed. I did about 250 frames in four minutes, then the flash died totally.

    While I was trying to get it working, the girls all relaxed in the pool, til I called it quits. Still a good shoot, even if it does end a little abruptly. I now try to use natural light only (or with reflector boards), for action GG stuff, so there's no risk of a gear failure.

    Cass: Marta rocked up with her friend Gretel, for an interview. Obviously tourists, and for your information, German. The two of them nearly sent me bonkers at the interview. They were so hyper and giggly. It drove me nuts. However, at the shoot the two did great jobs. Marta was definately the tougher of the two, easily hopping and skipping over the rocks whilst poor fragile Gretel tip toed and hobbled cautiously from stone to Stone, lagging more than 100 meters behind. Still, that's what makes best buddies and I think Gretel liked having strong reliable Marta to keep her safe.


    3525 - 3531: Lizzie redux
    Abby:
    Ah, the houseboat. Christ, what a lot of work this was! We hired a houseboat for three days, sailing around a large river system near Sydney. It was about 1.5 hours drive from the centre of town, that annoying distance to commute, but not far enough away to justify accomodation (or the nightmare of logistics of getting around a dozen models and staff fed and bedded for the duration). So, we commuted with 8am calls at the studio each day. This was the first time Lizzie decided to do some more explicit stuff. Lizzie is still up there as one of the models we have shot the most for the site (Annabel, and Elizabeth are up there as well).

    It was a lot of hard work this trip, but it turned out really well. More notes coming in subsequent backstage raves. This was the first day...

    Cass: Do you guys remember my first shoot? That was when I first met Abby and the team, and... when I first met Lizzie! I was driving up the coast with a girlfriend and blew a tyre. We pulled into this tiny little wop wop mechanics in the middle of no man's land to get the valve fixed and there was Lizzie with Felicity. They'd blown the motor on their combi van. We made a wise crack about how we probably met for a reason and then went on our merry way again. By the time this shoot rolled around, Lizzie is my flatmate and done a series of shoots for the site. And I still can't get over her incredible body. She doesn't even work out. Sheesh girl!


    3532 - 3543 Day 1 Lizzie, Morgan & Collette
    Cass:
    This would have to be one of my most memorable days working for Abby, and three of the best models to make the whole day so much fun. Lizzie, Morgan and Collette hadn't met before this day, and it turned out that the three of them got on like old buddies. This made the whole day such a success, and we spent most of it rolling around in fits of laughter. The only rule for the day was that we had to get the boat back to port before dark. Ooops! Abby got in SOOO MUCH trouble for that one from the boat hire place (it was cos she wanted to do those sunset shots of the group of us, miles away from where we were supposed to dock). Norty.


    3544 - 3552 Marta
    Cass:
    Marta ad Gretel came hand in hand to their shoot. It was all or nothing with these loyal friends. Not that bothered us. We couldn't have picked a more gorgeous or sunny day, and the two of them were happy as Larry to be taken on a little tourist drive around other parts of Sydney. Marta loved doing a shoot with us, and because we shot her first, she spent the rest of the afternoon lazing in the sun like a seal. Good for you girl.


    3553 - 3557 Gwyneth
    Abby:
    At a loss for locations, we shot Gwyneth in our funky (and recently refurbished) interview space.

    Cass: I was quite sure that we wouldn't be shooting Gwyneth . You'd think I've know better by now, but for some reason I didn't think she would be Abby enough. Sheesh? You're probably wondering how many other girls I've turned away like Gwyneth eh? Well, don't be too concerned. I think my judgement is pretty good most the time, and anyway, we did shoot Gwyneth, who turned out to be especially cute and photogenic, and such a little sweetheart too, with her little lisp and baby doll smile.


    3558 - 3563 Lene.
    Abby:
    We shot Lene on a massive bluff overlooking the Tasman Sea, near Bondi. We had previously shot a Mez model in the same location, and decided it was such a good place that we could get away with using it again at sunset. I was disappointed at the time, as there was a light cloud cover which massively reduced the contrast of all the pics, but in hindsight, I like the "airy" feel of these. A shot from this shoot was the front page image for this site for around 18 months.

    Jamie: Lene is the cutest little German chick. Has anyone ever told you never to tell jokes to foreigners? Well it doesn't work something is always lost in the translation. Trying to tell Lene some of my jokes just didn't work and we spent more time explaining them then we did making her laugh. I think Lene just laughed to make us think we we're funny. We got Lene to have a chat to the camera. At first she was having a bit of trouble talking as she couldn't think what to say. So we asked her to tell us a story in German and translate it for us. So she started rambling on in German for at least 3 minutes non stop which translated into a 30 second story about a dog. Thanks Lene we don't really mind you speaking in German, just remember to take your clothes off!

    We love Casey at AW HQ. She's such a funny girl as you will see. Instead of us telling jokes to her she was telling them to us and had us rolling around on the ground laughing. It's girls like Casey that makes our job even better than it is.

    Um, Casey I believe that is a dildo not a knife.


    3474 - 3492 Kellie
    Abby:
    Cass and I took Kellie to an awesome little back beach of the famous Manly in Sydney. Mid afternoon on a cloudy but warm summer weekday, it was almost totally deserted, and of course Cass went for a swim while I shot Kellie. We went up in the hills above the beach for the bulk of the shoot, some quintessential Aussie bush there.

    Cass: We're lucky we shot her when we did, because she's so damn hot, and when we immediately called her in for a redux, she was gone. She's in Asia some where now on her big O.E. Good for her. I think I mentioned it in her shoot bio, but on the day of her shoot there was a couple having a D & M (deep and meaningful) on the rocks down on the beach just near where we were shooting. The girl seemed to be having some emotional issues and they were talking it through. When her boyfriend went to give her a hug he noticed up as he was facing in our direction as he squeezed his girl. The girlfriend was obviously pleased that he gave her an extra prolonged hug and started getting all fuzzy and schmoozie, but at the same time slightly distracted. You can imagine the venom she spat at him when she turned and busted him gawking straight up at the gorgeous Kellie. Busted!


    3493 - 3508 Becs
    Cass:
    Bec's was bloody hard one. Don't be mislead by that natural vibrant smile. She was a nightmare to get smiling. I was horribly exhausted by the end of it, and totally out of crappy jokes to get her laughing. Ended up having to flash my tits behind Abby's back to get her to show her pearly whites. All the same it was good fun and especially nice to be hanging out in such a serene location. That's Sydney city in the background, you can juuuuust see the Bridge.


    3509 - 3518 Candii
    Abby:
    So I had this wacky idea of doing a trad glam porn shoot, and Candii insisted on wearing a wig on her shoot or it was a no-go, so I gave it a go in this retro office dócor. I got a friend who specicialises in glam shoots to style her for me. Dunno if it works, but it was fun!


    3519 - 3424 Marta and Gretel
    Abby:
    What a whirlwhind day this was. Cass and I took Marta and Gretel to a deserted secluded beach we had found on a previous shooting expidition. Of course, when we rocked up, there were fisherman fulling in nets and stuff. We tried to fake them out by waiting, but they looked like they had a lot to do, and the girsl were getting braver, so we just started shooting (Marta solo, first, see below). Then Gretel in the boat (coming in backstage 36), then them together, before we left to go home.

    There was this weird square rock-pool, totally overgrown with barnacles, perhaps somone's old wading pool? It was filled with soft sand and very clean, so we chose it for the shoot of them together. Pairs of backpackers are so easy to do these kinds shoots with, I can almost hold the shutter button down at 8 FPS, and everything going to be good stuff! As I was shooting in full sun, however, I had to use fill-flash, and the poor thing could not keep up with my usual shooting speed. I did about 250 frames in four minutes, then the flash died totally.

    While I was trying to get it working, the girls all relaxed in the pool, til I called it quits. Still a good shoot, even if it does end a little abruptly. I now try to use natural light only (or with reflector boards), for action GG stuff, so there's no risk of a gear failure.

    Cass: Marta rocked up with her friend Gretel, for an interview. Obviously tourists, and for your information, German. The two of them nearly sent me bonkers at the interview. They were so hyper and giggly. It drove me nuts. However, at the shoot the two did great jobs. Marta was definately the tougher of the two, easily hopping and skipping over the rocks whilst poor fragile Gretel tip toed and hobbled cautiously from stone to Stone, lagging more than 100 meters behind. Still, that's what makes best buddies and I think Gretel liked having strong reliable Marta to keep her safe.


    3525 - 3531: Lizzie redux
    Abby:
    Ah, the houseboat. Christ, what a lot of work this was! We hired a houseboat for three days, sailing around a large river system near Sydney. It was about 1.5 hours drive from the centre of town, that annoying distance to commute, but not far enough away to justify accomodation (or the nightmare of logistics of getting around a dozen models and staff fed and bedded for the duration). So, we commuted with 8am calls at the studio each day. This was the first time Lizzie decided to do some more explicit stuff. Lizzie is still up there as one of the models we have shot the most for the site (Annabel, and Elizabeth are up there as well).

    It was a lot of hard work this trip, but it turned out really well. More notes coming in subsequent backstage raves. This was the first day...

    Cass: Do you guys remember my first shoot? That was when I first met Abby and the team, and... when I first met Lizzie! I was driving up the coast with a girlfriend and blew a tyre. We pulled into this tiny little wop wop mechanics in the middle of no man's land to get the valve fixed and there was Lizzie with Felicity. They'd blown the motor on their combi van. We made a wise crack about how we probably met for a reason and then went on our merry way again. By the time this shoot rolled around, Lizzie is my flatmate and done a series of shoots for the site. And I still can't get over her incredible body. She doesn't even work out. Sheesh girl!


    3532 - 3543 Day 1 Lizzie, Morgan & Collette
    Cass:
    This would have to be one of my most memorable days working for Abby, and three of the best models to make the whole day so much fun. Lizzie, Morgan and Collette hadn't met before this day, and it turned out that the three of them got on like old buddies. This made the whole day such a success, and we spent most of it rolling around in fits of laughter. The only rule for the day was that we had to get the boat back to port before dark. Ooops! Abby got in SOOO MUCH trouble for that one from the boat hire place (it was cos she wanted to do those sunset shots of the group of us, miles away from where we were supposed to dock). Norty.


    3544 - 3552 Marta
    Cass:
    Marta ad Gretel came hand in hand to their shoot. It was all or nothing with these loyal friends. Not that bothered us. We couldn't have picked a more gorgeous or sunny day, and the two of them were happy as Larry to be taken on a little tourist drive around other parts of Sydney. Marta loved doing a shoot with us, and because we shot her first, she spent the rest of the afternoon lazing in the sun like a seal. Good for you girl.


    3553 - 3557 Gwyneth
    Abby:
    At a loss for locations, we shot Gwyneth in our funky (and recently refurbished) interview space.

    Cass: I was quite sure that we wouldn't be shooting Gwyneth . You'd think I've know better by now, but for some reason I didn't think she would be Abby enough. Sheesh? You're probably wondering how many other girls I've turned away like Gwyneth eh? Well, don't be too concerned. I think my judgement is pretty good most the time, and anyway, we did shoot Gwyneth, who turned out to be especially cute and photogenic, and such a little sweetheart too, with her little lisp and baby doll smile.


    3558 - 3563 Lene.
    Abby:
    We shot Lene on a massive bluff overlooking the Tasman Sea, near Bondi. We had previously shot a Mez model in the same location, and decided it was such a good place that we could get away with using it again at sunset. I was disappointed at the time, as there was a light cloud cover which massively reduced the contrast of all the pics, but in hindsight, I like the "airy" feel of these. A shot from this shoot was the front page image for this site for around 18 months.

    Jamie: Lene is the cutest little German chick. Has anyone ever told you never to tell jokes to foreigners? Well it doesn't work something is always lost in the translation. Trying to tell Lene some of my jokes just didn't work and we spent more time explaining them then we did making her laugh. I think Lene just laughed to make us think we we're funny. We got Lene to have a chat to the camera. At first she was having a bit of trouble talking as she couldn't think what to say. So we asked her to tell us a story in German and translate it for us. So she started rambling on in German for at least 3 minutes non stop which translated into a 30 second story about a dog. Thanks Lene we don't really mind you speaking in German, just remember to take your clothes off!

    3354 - 3371 Tully
    Abby:
    British backpacker Tully, we shot at Cass's house, cos her own house was infested with cricket watching British backpacking boys at the time. I do so love those green knickers.

    3372 - 3377 Simone
    Abby:
    This is the first ever shoot we did of Simone. I used fill flash in the shade which is always a bad idea, but they still look great. I guess that's cos she's such a damn fine lady!

    3378 - 3385 Teresa
    Abby:
    Special Assistant Gretchen is helping out with the lighting. While that sun on the leaves of the grapevine looked great, it was not going to last at sunset, so we took the shoot out to the lawn. We ended up getting on to Elvaar's roof to get the final shots with the pretty sunset.

    Elvaar: That's not lawn, it's a weed farm. It's so hard to get a gardener these days! This is probably the worst picture I have ever seen of Gretchen. She's actually very pretty when she eats properly and smiles, but I do wish she'd either ditch that cow ring or put a leash on it. I'm pretty sure Gretchen has a crush on Abby.

    3386 - 3403 April
    Abby:
    We had a ladybug invasion for April's shoot, in Elvaar's backyard jungle. Ever reliable, Elvaar pulled out his hose and gave April a good seeing to.

    Elvaar: Don't knock the hose, it's like a personality gun. April is a nice girl and one of the pics she did for ishotmyself (that's www.ishotmyself.com, folks) became our splash page.

    3404 - 3433 Samantha and Tully
    Abby:
    These two post British backpackers were best buddies after going through all of high school and travelling around the world together. As you can see from these outtakes, this shoot was a hoot. All the shots of them looking off-camera are cos they can see a reflection of themselves in a window. Old pal of mine Dekoda sent me a shirt for a a place he used to work for or something, and we pulled it out for this shoot. That was a "small" as well.

    3434 - 3444 Bess Redux
    Abby:
    Not the sharpest tool in the shed, but she sure is pretty, I shot Bess in Cass's spare bedroom using my fave, natch light (hence the slow shutter speed, motion blur). It just makes everyone look so damn nice... The skin on her boobs is peeling cos she went topless sun bathing, hussy!

    3445 - 3449 Sara
    Abby:
    Elvaar insisted I shoot Sara, at the time I was totally against it, cos she was so big. But like most of Elvaar's ideas, it turned out great in the end. This shoot and model were very popular.

    Elvaar: I don't know how anyone could not find this girl irresistably cute, with those big puppydog eyes. I think doing this shoot gave her a lot of confidence.

    3450 - 3464 Anna O
    Abby:
    Cass was interviewing this day, and Lizzie was available to come and help out, so she did. I had a go with the off-camera flash for this series, and it looks totally weird.

  • Sun 12th Sep 2004 | Behind the Scenes

    3242 - 3274 Alicia D
    Abby:
    Crikey, what a character. As we sometimes do, we shot both of Alicia's shoots on the same day, one down at her communal pool, and one here in her bedroom. She's one of those girls who loves to shop, and had so amny clothes for us to choose from, so we took advantage of that. Then we moved to her bed, and did the shoot proper. I remember this was a Friday night and we were working late. Cass found beers and grapes in the fridge, and proceeded to heckle us relentlessly throughlout the shoot. As so often seems to happen, Alicia's mum called in the middle of the shoot.

    3275 - 3289 Sam
    Abby:
    Sam lived with Tully and about six british backpacker boys in Bondi. Cass shoo'd them out of the house, and we shot Sam alone, and the classic shoot of Sam and Tully together. I hung up a white reflector board in a tree to get a highlight, and I think this woked really well (apart from the annoyingly shallow DOF).

    3290 - 3300 Liiza
    Abby:
    Ah, our second shoot for 2003. Liiza's flatmate Alice was the first, and hour before this. Some of those sneers are for real... I found it very hard to deal with Liiza on her own, but she did a good job all told. I love the light in this shoot, natural thru a window cannot be beat.

    3301 - 3312 Renae
    Abby:
    Ohh. Renae got on our bad side by slagging off our country on video, but she did a good job on this very hot day, so I'll cut her some slack. We shot this on the same day as the GG shoot with Ellen.

    3313 - 3353 Alice and Liiza
    Abby:
    We shot this on the same day as their two solo shoots, and they did a great job. The pics of them grumpy at the start are just me testing the light. They were not really that grumpy!

  • Wed 28th Jul 2004 | Behind the Scenes

    3133 - 3144 Debbie
    Abby:
    Cass and I actually shot this on the same day as Debbie's redux set (the one on the rocks by the nudist beach on Sydney Harbour). This set, we shot on the bluff above the same beach, where the gay boys go to have sex. So we had to negotiate our way around the used condoms to find a nice little sheltered area. It was almost sunset, so poor Debbie was cold, and the sun was on the other side of the hill. Great pic of Cass in her orange bikini. :)

    3145 - 3158 Ellen Redux
    Abby:
    Another shoot on Sydney harbour, we shot this right after the GG shoot with Ellen and Renae (see at the end of this image set). Renae had caught the bus home, bless her.

    3159 - 3175 Lillian
    Abby:
    Elvaar knew this park near his house, and Lillian was an up-for-anything kinda girl, and was totally unfazed by the passing foot and bicycle traffic. She got braver as the sun neared setting, eventually just running around the park starkers, much to the appreciation of others. And us.

    Indubitably, she has the largest clitoris I have ever seen. And I have seen a few.

    I never did work out what "spoon size" meant.

    Elvaar: She was careful to wipe the spiggot before sitting on it but I don't recall if we wiped it after use...hmm. Abyy has obviously forgotten about the young woman with her 2 kids on the playground about 50 metres away. She was disgusted at our behaviour and rounded the rats up before they could see what was going on, and rightly so!

    3176 - 3185 Nadia redux
    Abby:
    nadia refused to do the glass-drkinging thing sensibly (cos she thought it made her look dumb!). She's not so hot on the drill usage. But, when you're that spunky, you don't need to anyway, eh?

    Elvaar: She's a very elegant girl, I don't blame her for baulking when Abby asked her to "dribble all over the place". We like Nadia, she has boundaries but she's a really fun girl. How come her eyes are always a different colour?

    3186 - 3210 Alice
    Abby:
    Our first shoot for 2002, Alice and Liiza's home was so cool cos it was really lived in and had lots of textures. Clearly, Alice was a betty Page fan. But Betty never had those plaits that could double as a mustache and a neck tie.

    3121 - 3216 Jessie
    Abby:
    We shot Jessie in my courtyard. She was kinda grumpy.

    3217 - 3228 Lauren
    Abby:
    Elvaar and I shot Lauren at her home. Elvaar's hugely responsible for my "available light" passion, and this shoot is a good example of it. Lauren worked for us for a little while, recruiting models.

    Elvaar: Lauren had this great pad overlooking the park and the rent was really cheap. I also remember we told her to just leave the place as-is because we like shooting girls in their natural habitat but it was really obvious she had spring cleaned the whole place for us. The giveaway was the candle precariously balanced on the bedhead.

    3229 - 3241 Ellen & Renae
    Abby:
    As happens in a lot of our girl-girl shoots, these two met on the day in my car (we picked Ellen up on the way to the location). That'd always be a little weird, I reckon, so we try to keep the conversation rolling and get them chatting a little bit, so they don't have to say things like, "So. Kissed another girl on film before, or...?". These guys did a great job, even with the guy hanging around "look for his lost wallet". Uh huh.

    You can see we shot Ellen's redux just around the corner from there.

    Abby:
    Um. I don't recall much about this shoot, except Christie was verrry flexible. Yes.


    3032 - 3037 Debbie Redux
    Abby:
    Cass and I did two shoots of Debbie on the one day. As I sometimes do, I chose the first set I shot to be a Redux, the second set the "main". So these are from the first set we shot. We went to a nudist beach, and if I recall correctly, this was done on the last shoot day of the year (2002!) for Cass and I. The beach was busier than I anticipated, and we had plenty of interest (I expected some people to get grumpy cos I had a camera on the beach). Cass had to fend off seedy guys offering to hold Debbie's bikini top as she cast it off, and so on.


    3028 - 3052 Rani
    Abby:
    Elvaar and I went to Rani's house to shoot her, and she was just... Um. How can I describe her? An outrageous flirt who had Elvaar hot under the collar, her very new and apparently expensive but sparsely furnished apartment was a total pigsty, Rani was a ball of fun to shoot. As you can see, I had some trouble with the exposure for much of this, but I got some corkers. Elvaar shot the video on this day, and I am sure he will have some stories... That's Rani laughing at all his gags in most of these pics.

    Elvaar: Abby and I argued about the lighting for so long that Rani got hungry and tried to chow down on her toe. There was this skylight you see, and that seemed like lux superior, but it just wasn't working, then the clouds came and made it even more difficult - so the lighting is all over the place and so was Rani frankly. She's probably best described as an intelligent scatterbrain so we invited her to join our pub trivia team for a while. Geography and science weren't her strong subjects but when it came to the karaoke section, there was no contest. Not that she can sing, but the quizzmaster is male after all.


    3053 - 3064 Louise
    Abby:
    Louise is a british backpacker who we shot in her dingy Bondi Beach dive (who needs sheets on the bed anyway, I reckon!). Up for a good time, with a fab athletic body, Louise is a perfect model for this site. And she's laughing at MY witty japes. :)


    3065 - 3102 Elizabeth

    Elizabeth was almost a no shoot - we had the perfect beach picked out (the other side of Manly beach in Sydney, for Aussies), usually totally empty (we shot Bron, and Sonja there, from memory), but there was a massive uni crowd there for some function. So Cass pulled out the map, closed her eyes, and dropped her finger on a point (to choose a beach to shoot at, you see?).

    Of course, we can't shoot in the middle of Sydney Harbour, so she tried a few more times, and eventually I just picked a place on the map and we thought we'd give it a go. It turned out to be a most deserted beach at the bottom of a long flight of stairs up a cliff (I could not spare a free hand to peep up Elizabeth's skirt with a camera for a backstage pic, sorry!).

    She was very uncomfortable at the start, but warmed to Cass's jokes (but not to the freezing water). For an annoyingly long while she refused to get more than waist deep, and she challenged Cass and I. Cass needed little persuading, and I figured if we wanted a good shoot we'd bloody have to do something, so in we went.

    No one can deliver the "help me, I'm innocent" look quite like Elizabeth can, (see pic 66 from her set proper), also wrapped up with a lot of "hurry the hell up, I'm cold!".


    3103 - 3115 Leanne
    Abby:
    We shot Leanne and her pal Bess on the same day, on a tepid summer arvo at a tiny harbour beach. Then a family rocked up, so we headed for the hills and shot Leanne there. Natural light and those whassname trees made for a delightful look. That's Cass risking life and limb to show a model how to behave dangerously.


    3116 - 3132 Chloe
    Abby:
    I think we shot Chloe on the same day as Debbie (above). My plan was to get the setting sun over the water, with an awesome sunset in the background. Unfortunately, the sunset ended up being kinda lame, so we just had some jumping around fun instead. We had to wait for an hour for the sun to be good, so we sat on the now deserted nudist beach, ate peanuts and chatted.

    3023 - 3031 Christie
    Abby:
    Um. I don't recall much about this shoot, except Christie was verrry flexible. Yes.


    3032 - 3037 Debbie Redux
    Abby:
    Cass and I did two shoots of Debbie on the one day. As I sometimes do, I chose the first set I shot to be a Redux, the second set the "main". So these are from the first set we shot. We went to a nudist beach, and if I recall correctly, this was done on the last shoot day of the year (2002!) for Cass and I. The beach was busier than I anticipated, and we had plenty of interest (I expected some people to get grumpy cos I had a camera on the beach). Cass had to fend off seedy guys offering to hold Debbie's bikini top as she cast it off, and so on.


    3028 - 3052 Rani
    Abby:
    Elvaar and I went to Rani's house to shoot her, and she was just... Um. How can I describe her? An outrageous flirt who had Elvaar hot under the collar, her very new and apparently expensive but sparsely furnished apartment was a total pigsty, Rani was a ball of fun to shoot. As you can see, I had some trouble with the exposure for much of this, but I got some corkers. Elvaar shot the video on this day, and I am sure he will have some stories... That's Rani laughing at all his gags in most of these pics.

    Elvaar: Abby and I argued about the lighting for so long that Rani got hungry and tried to chow down on her toe. There was this skylight you see, and that seemed like lux superior, but it just wasn't working, then the clouds came and made it even more difficult - so the lighting is all over the place and so was Rani frankly. She's probably best described as an intelligent scatterbrain so we invited her to join our pub trivia team for a while. Geography and science weren't her strong subjects but when it came to the karaoke section, there was no contest. Not that she can sing, but the quizzmaster is male after all.


    3053 - 3064 Louise
    Abby:
    Louise is a british backpacker who we shot in her dingy Bondi Beach dive (who needs sheets on the bed anyway, I reckon!). Up for a good time, with a fab athletic body, Louise is a perfect model for this site. And she's laughing at MY witty japes. :)

    2918 - 2934 Briana
    Abby:
    This shoot annoys me to this day. British Briana is an excellent model, and _Cass_ had a great idea to bring a mango along to this shoot (I think she planned to have a snack, but donated it to the cause as we started shooting, bless her). Briana did a great job, and the mango looked great, but my FUCKING flash gear was being silly (Canon 550ex), and severley wrecked 80% of shots in this shoot (under- or over-exposed). As you'll see from the set, I kept some frames in that were technically bad but all we had.

    Cass: I'd been speaking with Abby for ages about incorporating fruit into a shoot, and I was especially keen to use a mango, being my favourite fruit and all, and also being the height of mango season. When Briana graced us with her very elegant presence and stated that she would be more than happy to enthrall us all with her sexual abilities, I knew that she'd be great for a 'froot shoot!'

    I just conveniently packed a fat juicy mango into my lunch box, and when we reached the point where we had the model and the location and Abby on my left asking, "And now what", I whipped out my mango and gave it to our star. Very fruity shoot!


    2935 - 2949 Alison
    Abby:
    German Alison struck both _Cass_ and I as a dominatrix in a previous life (heck, or this one), not from what she wore or told us, nor the way she bossed us around (actually, she was kinda meek!). But there was something mysterious about her... She had a good time in this shoot, and I got to use some of my highschool German on her ("himmel was ist das?!" "toiletten papier", and "eins, zwei, drei, fier" is about it).

    Cass: Oh who ho ho! Now! Geesh! Alison eh? Where do I start? This silent type German girl is the perfect reincarnation of a war time sex dominatrix. Can I say that? Because really, she's exactly what I would imagine one to be. The brooding eyes, the tight, yet full lipped smirk, the extra length in her strong sexy legs and those firm gripping hands that clench and unclench into fists, even when she's not in a bad mood. I don't intend to make her out to be a scary woman. Not indeed. She's a fox! I can just see she's capable of much, much more-he he.


    2950 - 2957 Olivia
    Abby:
    Aussie Olivia and her boyf lived in a small but very cool penthouse, and they had a great rooftop garden. Older than our usual fare at 29, I liked Olivia from the first time I met her. Gretchen, our part time helper, came along to assist, and spent her time chatting up Olivia's boyf.


    2958 - 2968 Veronica
    Abby:
    Oh, what a funtime girl. We seem to have a real ethnic variety this Backstage - Veronica is part Lebonese. As I sometimes do when I am lost for ideas (late in the day, on a four-model shoot), I asked Veronica for ideas on what to do next. She looked around and found this coathanger. Looks to me like it really hurt.

    Cass: Veronica tried to drag all her friends along to be interviewed too, but none were keen or brave enough. They thought she was mad for doing a 'nude shoot..my god!' Alot of Lebo teenagers seem to hang around in large, tightly bonded groups. They're very close and don't usually do something unless everyone else follows suit. Veronica was great, as she ventured out and did a shoot because it was something she wanted to do, even if her friends opposed. Very cool, and a very cute chick.


    2969 - 2981 Bess
    Abby:
    Another Brit, Bess. Blue eyes and dark hair is not so common it's certainly striking on Bess. As we sometimes seem to, we had a not-so-subtle visitor on Bess's secret cove shoot. Cass shoo'd him off in no time. We shot Leanne on the same day (and their play GG shoot, as well).

    Cass: Bess is someone who I found sitting on the front step of a backpackers in the summer sun, with her buddy Leanne. I went up to them, gave them my card (was still feeling pretty cool about the whole business card thing) and told them to..."Call Me!" I was REALLY surprised when they did. Probably because it was one of my first times carding models. It was a great confidence builder for me and next thing you know, I'm throwing cards around willy nilly. This summer was really great for me. I spent loads of time with chirpy naked girls in the sun, swimming, and learning about camera's with my super cool boss That's me! -Ed. What more could a girl want?


    2981 - 2997 Marissa
    Abby:
    Aussie-as (though with Irish roots, of course) It's not often we shoot mums, but Marissa is a mother of three, living in a small apartment in an outer suburb. She just got a puppy for her and her kids. As you can tell from the shoot and the pics here, I really liked this puppy. I think I paid t more attention than Marissa. Luckily for me, she understood the attraction. Unfortunately, we never got a chance to shoot Marissa again. True redheads of her spunkyness are very rare, and damn cute.

    Cass: We didn't know Marissa had this cute little multi coloured eyed puppy when we rocked up at her home on the beach. She was a funny model to visit. Most girls have stuff strewn everywhere and we pick through bit of lint and dirty undies to find the clothes we're after for the shoot. Marissa had everything colour co-ordinated in her draws and wardrobe, which turned out to be incredibly handy and efficient for getting a shoot done in record time. Abby wanted sssssooooooo much to take that puppy home, and I think she ended up spending more time photographing the dog, than the model


    2998 - 3004 Natasha
    Abby:
    This IS weird. Natasha is Russian! Like a lot of Russians I have met, she was very standoffish. Gorgeous eyes and lips, I took a lot of face closeups. One thing I remember clearly, was at the end of the shoot, Cass had to deal with the next model, so I gave Natasha a lift to the train station... She insisted on sitting in the back seat, even tho it was only me and her in the car. That's weird, right?

    Cass: Ah, my Russian princess. Yes? Strokes chin thoughtfully. This one wandered in all nochalant, and seemed as if she didn't really give a donkeys...uncle. I've come to realise it's a common attribute in most Russian girls. They come in all dark and sexy and act as if it's them doing us the favour and they really couldn't care less either way, and then Boom-fa! You shoot em and they're gone. Kinda works well that way. This one was super funny. Natasha was dating a police officer at the time, which she found hugely amusing. I did too to tell you the truth. If only he knew.


    3005 - 3022 Charlie up the duff
    Abby:
    ok, so you'd be hard pressed to find a girl more Aussie than Charlie... She used to work for us as model liaison (where Jamie now does, and as Cass and Susie and Tahlia did before). She had to pack it in when she fell pregnant, but she came back for this shoot at Elvaar's house. He has a kink for religious iconography. (Hey, recognise the bed, anyone?). It was great chatting with down-to-earth Charlie about being pregnant, her video's a hoot. In all these pics, she's laughing at Elvaar's gags and looking at him.

    Elvaar: Those aren't gags, they're my life stories! Me and Gretchen were sent on a mission to track Charlie down. There'd been rumours she'd joined some religious cult. We found her working as a checkout chick in a supermarket in the boondocks but at first we weren't sure it was her - the hair was longer and a different colour, she looked taller, and pregnant! As soon as we heard her laugh there was no mistaking Charlie though. She has two or three little bundles of mischief now.

  • Sat 10th Jan 2004 | Behind the Scenes

    2820 - 2827 Josephine
    Abby:
    Reflections can be a real killer. They only happen when inside is brighter than the outside, which in this first image is only the inside of the umbrella only. We could not shoot at Jo's home, so Cass donated her bedroom to the cause - I love getting inside and outside in a shoot at the same time. Nice bum!

    Cass: Josephine was someone that Susie babe interviewed when she was still in these parts, and the poor girl ended up waiting a total of four months for someone to finally call her, through the haze the disruption and changing of liaisons. When we did get her in, we wondered why we didn't do it sooner. She was so lovely to be around and genuinely pleased to be doing a shoot with us. I love models like that. Most models are great to tell you the truth, and we were pleased to finally add Josephine to our delightful collection.


    2828 - 2838 Vanessa Redux
    Abby:
    At this stage, we were just out of locations. It was Winter, so we could not shoot outside. We resorted to renting furniture and shooting in the studio, something I hate doing cos it looks SO cheesy. Spunky model, best bum on the site in my opinion, and she is tiny - check her out standing next to Cass. I shot this before the ballerina shoot that appears in Deviations (ie, the same day).

    Cass: How cool is the orange chair in the shoot? I love it! Little Vanessa is also a model Susie interviewed and I had the pleasure of meeting. Vanessa's our prima ballerina. She's the most down to earth lady and not what you'd expect from a swan lake sweetie. It was really great to get her back in for this shoot, and I think also refreshing for her to have a go working at something that she's totally appreciated for and not having to work so hard (those poor toes).


    2839 - 2861 Rouamali
    Abby:
    Elvaar - who loves planes - knew this quarry near the airport (think desolate), so we took Rouamali down there for her shoot. We were lucky with a big earthmover, which is ironic as she's very much a greenie - she told us her occupation was "protesting" (usually against old forests being woodchipped). Still, she had a good sense of humour, and clambered all over the excavator. The wacky light in some of these is from an off-camera flash, triggered by infra-red. The weather on the day kept changing from bright sunny blue sky, to dark overhead thunderclouds, resulting in a nice range of pictures. One of the few shoots the Canon flash system actually worked ok.

    Elvaar: I found this location while looking for places to go planespotting. As you can see, it's right near the airport, and we were regularly distracted by the low flying jets. That was fine by me - but Abby couldn't understand how, given the choice, I'd be watching a plane when there's a naked girl nearby. Ruamali (Abby never spelled it right) was a tree hugging hippy and we all thought it was rather funny to be on this side of a bulldozer for once. Gee they smell nice, those hippies - like a wok, you never want to clean it or you'll lose the flavour.


    2862 - 2871 Violet
    Abby:
    What a fun girl Violet is! We thought we'd try a masturbation sequence for her stills shoot, and while she ended up doing ok, at first she kept bursting out laughing. On the same day, she did her "intimate moments" masturbatrion video, leaving Cass teaching me how to play guitar on her doorstep in the sun while VidDude looked on.

    VidDude: Violet's home was a bit of a shack, but it had character. So we decided that a quick tour of it is what we needed. But Violet, being a bit of a hyperactive kind of person, tended to gabble her way through her monologue and tour, so we had to take several takes, which I blended together to make the final vid.

    We also asked her to do something for the Intimate Moments DVD, which was still just a germ of an idea at that point. So for about half an hour, Abby, Cass, and I sat outside in her yard, tiptoeing and whispering so we would not be picked up by the sensitive microphone, while she was in her room alone, masturbating rather animatedly and furiously in front of the camera.

    Cass: Have you seen this shoot? How happy and shiny can one girl get for goodness sakes? We all had to wear sunglasses she was so vibrant. Her house was the best, and obviously, what I adored about it most, was her special room set up especially for music. The coffee table had a big bowl of peanuts in the shells and I spent most of the shoot time cracking and munching while Abby got busy with Violet in the bedroom (so to speak). The rest of it I wasted in the sun and played one of Violet's guitars, singing sunny day tunes, while hysterical explosions of laughter erupted from inside. I liked pottering at Violets house, and didn't want to leave her little oasis when home time came around. I wish we could have kept Violet. Oh well. At least we get to keep the pictures.


    2872 - 2890 Elsie
    Abby:
    We shot this in Elvaars back yard, as we have done so many times. Elsie is Czech, and does not speak much English, so we got Tabbitha, also Czech, to translate for us, via a mobile phone for the tricky poses. It was quite funny. Not as funny as Elvaar miming "take off your wet knickers slowly", however.

    Elvaar hose count: 26 models wetted down.

    Elvaar: We had a few language issues with Elsie and she seemed a bit uncertain about doing a shoot, but we soon realsied she spoke the same dialect as somebody else we'd shot a few months before, so we got the old girl on the phone and they "acht"d and "unzt"d and "oerk"'d for a while and then Elsie was all smiles. So we took that as a recommendation. As you would know I'm rather fond of the water apparatus to liven up a lethargic model but Elsie was so sweet I at least got the kettle out to take the chill off things.


    2891 - 2901 Molly
    Abby:
    British Molly will always be fondly remembered here. One of the great parts of this job is that I get to meet so many damn nice people, and Molly is one of them. Again Cass's home came to the rescue, while it looks sunny outside, it's quite cold! We don't shoot many models in dresses for some reason, but this little knitted number was dead cute. It may look like we sponsor Coke, but we just all happen to like it.

    Cass: Miss Molly had a dolly who was sick sick sick....ha ha! I was singing this the whole time we shot Miss Molly here. I'm bad like that. Something always reminds me of a song, and I'll sing or hum it till I drive everyone around me crazy. I thought the song was very apt though, simply because you would think of the character Miss Molly being all cute and curly and gorgeous...just like our Molly, so it worked out well. Perhaps you can try humming the tune as you idle through her truly delicious shoot.


    2902 - 2912 Kylie redux
    Abby:
    Kylie was such a fun model to shoot, we got her back for a redux. We shot this an hour before she did her girl-girl shoot with Joanne, note the similarity of the lighting and location! Susie worked so hard, she's often tired. Contrary to popular belief, Elvaar was not on the other end of that phone talking dirty, it was just Kylie's acting that made it look so good.

    Elvaar: Not wanting to waste time or a good prop, we got Kylie to order a pizza while we shot this scene. And you all thought she was talking dirty, didn'tchya? Just goes to show, the power of suggestion can even make a "large Aussie with no onion" look sexy. (Your homework for tonight is to find out the ingredients for an Aussie pizza). This is Susie's "intelligent face", the one she used to get into uni. How's that going then, Susie?


    2913 - 2917 Marie Mez
    Abby:
    We shot Marie on a whim, meaning we were disorganised. We tried her on the blue backdrop, and ended up shooting her in a corner of the studio. Marie had open heart surgery when she was a lass, hence the scarring.

We could not shoot at Jo's home, so Cass donated her bedroom to the cause - I love getting inside and outside in a shoot at the same time. Nice bum!

    Cass: Josephine was someone that Susie babe interviewed when she was still in these parts, and the poor girl ended up waiting a total of four months for someone to finally call her, through the haze the disruption and changing of liaisons. When we did get her in, we wondered why we didn't do it sooner. She was so lovely to be around and genuinely pleased to be doing a shoot with us. I love models like that. Most models are great to tell you the truth, and we were pleased to finally add Josephine to our delightful collection.


    2828 - 2838 Vanessa Redux
    Abby:
    At this stage, we were just out of locations. It was Winter, so we could not shoot outside. We resorted to renting furniture and shooting in the studio, something I hate doing cos it looks SO cheesy. Spunky model, best bum on the site in my opinion, and she is tiny - check her out standing next to Cass. I shot this before the ballerina shoot that appears in Deviations (ie, the same day).

    Cass: How cool is the orange chair in the shoot? I love it! Little Vanessa is also a model Susie interviewed and I had the pleasure of meeting. Vanessa's our prima ballerina. She's the most down to earth lady and not what you'd expect from a swan lake sweetie. It was really great to get her back in for this shoot, and I think also refreshing for her to have a go working at something that she's totally appreciated for and not having to work so hard (those poor toes).


    2839 - 2861 Rouamali
    Abby:
    Elvaar - who loves planes - knew this quarry near the airport (think desolate), so we took Rouamali down there for her shoot. We were lucky with a big earthmover, which is ironic as she's very much a greenie - she told us her occupation was "protesting" (usually against old forests being woodchipped). Still, she had a good sense of humour, and clambered all over the excavator. The wacky light in some of these is from an off-camera flash, triggered by infra-red. The weather on the day kept changing from bright sunny blue sky, to dark overhead thunderclouds, resulting in a nice range of pictures. One of the few shoots the Canon flash system actually worked ok.

    Elvaar: I found this location while looking for places to go planespotting. As you can see, it's right near the airport, and we were regularly distracted by the low flying jets. That was fine by me - but Abby couldn't understand how, given the choice, I'd be watching a plane when there's a naked girl nearby. Ruamali (Abby never spelled it right) was a tree hugging hippy and we all thought it was rather funny to be on this side of a bulldozer for once. Gee they smell nice, those hippies - like a wok, you never want to clean it or you'll lose the flavour.


    2862 - 2871 Violet
    Abby:
    What a fun girl Violet is! We thought we'd try a masturbation sequence for her stills shoot, and while she ended up doing ok, at first she kept bursting out laughing. On the same day, she did her "intimate moments" masturbatrion video, leaving Cass teaching me how to play guitar on her doorstep in the sun while VidDude looked on.

    VidDude: Violet's home was a bit of a shack, but it had character. So we decided that a quick tour of it is what we needed. But Violet, being a bit of a hyperactive kind of person, tended to gabble her way through her monologue and tour, so we had to take several takes, which I blended together to make the final vid.

    We also asked her to do something for the Intimate Moments DVD, which was still just a germ of an idea at that point. So for about half an hour, Abby, Cass, and I sat outside in her yard, tiptoeing and whispering so we would not be picked up by the sensitive microphone, while she was in her room alone, masturbating rather animatedly and furiously in front of the camera.

    Cass: Have you seen this shoot? How happy and shiny can one girl get for goodness sakes? We all had to wear sunglasses she was so vibrant. Her house was the best, and obviously, what I adored about it most, was her special room set up especially for music. The coffee table had a big bowl of peanuts in the shells and I spent most of the shoot time cracking and munching while Abby got busy with Violet in the bedroom (so to speak). The rest of it I wasted in the sun and played one of Violet's guitars, singing sunny day tunes, while hysterical explosions of laughter erupted from inside. I liked pottering at Violets house, and didn't want to leave her little oasis when home time came around. I wish we could have kept Violet. Oh well. At least we get to keep the pictures.


    2872 - 2890 Elsie
    Abby:
    We shot this in Elvaars back yard, as we have done so many times. Elsie is Czech, and does not speak much English, so we got Tabbitha, also Czech, to translate for us, via a mobile phone for the tricky poses. It was quite funny. Not as funny as Elvaar miming "take off your wet knickers slowly", however.

    Elvaar hose count: 26 models wetted down.

    Elvaar: We had a few language issues with Elsie and she seemed a bit uncertain about doing a shoot, but we soon realsied she spoke the same dialect as somebody else we'd shot a few months before, so we got the old girl on the phone and they "acht"d and "unzt"d and "oerk"'d for a while and then Elsie was all smiles. So we took that as a recommendation. As you would know I'm rather fond of the water apparatus to liven up a lethargic model but Elsie was so sweet I at least got the kettle out to take the chill off things.


    2891 - 2901 Molly
    Abby:
    British Molly will always be fondly remembered here. One of the great parts of this job is that I get to meet so many damn nice people, and Molly is one of them. Again Cass's home came to the rescue, while it looks sunny outside, it's quite cold! We don't shoot many models in dresses for some reason, but this little knitted number was dead cute. It may look like we sponsor Coke, but we just all happen to like it.

    Cass: Miss Molly had a dolly who was sick sick sick....ha ha! I was singing this the whole time we shot Miss Molly here. I'm bad like that. Something always reminds me of a song, and I'll sing or hum it till I drive everyone around me crazy. I thought the song was very apt though, simply because you would think of the character Miss Molly being all cute and curly and gorgeous...just like our Molly, so it worked out well. Perhaps you can try humming the tune as you idle through her truly delicious shoot.


    2902 - 2912 Kylie redux
    Abby:
    Kylie was such a fun model to shoot, we got her back for a redux. We shot this an hour before she did her girl-girl shoot with Joanne, note the similarity of the lighting and location! Susie worked so hard, she's often tired. Contrary to popular belief, Elvaar was not on the other end of that phone talking dirty, it was just Kylie's acting that made it look so good.

    Elvaar: Not wanting to waste time or a good prop, we got Kylie to order a pizza while we shot this scene. And you all thought she was talking dirty, didn'tchya? Just goes to show, the power of suggestion can even make a "large Aussie with no onion" look sexy. (Your homework for tonight is to find out the ingredients for an Aussie pizza). This is Susie's "intelligent face", the one she used to get into uni. How's that going then, Susie?


    2913 - 2917 Marie Mez
    Abby:
    We shot Marie on a whim, meaning we were disorganised. We tried her on the blue backdrop, and ended up shooting her in a corner of the studio. Marie had open heart surgery when she was a lass, hence the scarring.


  • Sat 08th Nov 2003 | Behind the Scenes

    2718 - 2737 Ange A
    Abby:
    We were utterly starved for locations at this stage, so we decided to do a deconstructed studio shoot. This ugly (and uncomfy!) sofa belongs to an ex-GF of mine, and for some reason it ended up at my workplace.

    I toyed with using front flash bounced off a brolly for this shoot, but then I thought we'd use the natch light for the back, and redheads for the front - then I made the foolish mistake of increasing the ISO (film sensitivity, higher ISO means more "noise" - lower quality). By white-balancing to the front light (incandescent, 3200 degrees roughly, looking very yellow compared to flash or daylight (see image 2721)), the backlight (daylight) comes across as looking blue, adding a nice touch to the image. With this particular shoot, I went too far (too yellow skin, too blue backlight), but in more recent shoots you can see how we use this effect (especially in the videos). I like it.

    I think this was Susie's last shoot with us!


    2738 - 2752 Jenny
    Abby:
    I like Jenny. She speaks her mind, and does not mince her words. In this job, the most annoying models are the feckless ones, so when we get one like Jenny, it makes me happy. Her arse - one of the best on the site - also makes me happy.

    VidDude: Jenny is unique. Not only is she a great talker (which isn't so rare), and completely open about sharing some very risque stories about herself (which is slightly rare), and totally comfortable with her body (quite rare indeed), but she combines them all with a great sense of humour and sense of silliness. That is a rare combination indeed.

    The video went sour about halfway through the clothes-wearing scene when the batteries went dead in the new fancy microphone that we had recently started using. The rest of the scenes had to be recorded using the standard crappy mic. We still have trouble with that thing, though we now always arm ourselves with spare batteries.

    The ending of the video with the news-reporter joke was Jenny's idea, especially using the dildo as a microphone, which we expanded on later in the studio, also on the spur of the moment.

    Cass: One can imagine that it wouldn't be hard to get the impression, after meeting Jenny, and knowing myself, that all Kiwi women are righteous, outspoken, obnoxious know-it-all sex goddesses (ha!). Perhaps you're not far wrong. We're a burly type of woman from a land of rugged country and legends, and staunch raw backgrounds.

    We say what we mean, and generally mean what we say, and if others don't like it... they can go &$% themselves. Corporate men love us, young men fear us, and country boys play fight with us in the hay. Jenny solidifies all these statements in her video and proves she's not a sissy girl in her stills. She's strong, independent, and insanely hilarious. Infact, all through her shoot, I received numerous bollockings from Abby for spoiling a good take, due to the fact that I simply couldn't suppress my laughter.

    Jenny worked around the corner from me at a local club where I played, and I often lingered there with a beer in my hand, chuckling with her over old memories. Ah, yes. Those were the days.


    2753 - 2769 Kathleen
    Abby:
    Shot at Elvaar's house, and not a garden hose in sight. What's going on?!

    Elvaar: It's a pity these pictures don't really paint thousands of words because Kathleen had a good story to tell during this shoot. Apparently someone had stolen her identity and managed to chalk up thousands of dollars worth of loans and bills and the first thing she knew about it was the sheriff on the doorstep trying to repossess a jet ski. The funny part about it is she lives 1,150km from the nearest water deep enough to use one.


    2770 - 2793 Gabrielle
    Cass:
    AH-HA! This is the backstage girl loads of you will scoot straight to, simply because she's charmed her way into everyone's pants on a psychological level, not to mention that fact that she's beautiful and genuine. Gabrielle's a star on our site. She's done awesome shoots on her own, and dazzled us with her passion in her's and Jamie's DVD 'Girls in Love'.

    She's also intelligent and confident and spent some time on our boards. The day of her shoot, Abby and I rocked up, expecting to do a regular afternoon of shooting and then a couple of hours later be out of there. WELL! 5 Hours later we walked out in a state of hypnotic delirium. She's a witchy woman with the power to lure her victims in. We like her.


    2794 - 2804 Isabella & Jenny
    Cass:
    If you're going to match up a Kiwi and an Aussie on the abbywinters site, I reckon these two are the perfect combination. Both have great smiles, great energy, and both of them talk your head off..."K guys, time to stop yabbering and do some work!".

    We forgot to consider the disadvantages of leather upholstery during this shoot and realised later that we had to deal with a terrible rustly crunchy sounds created by sticky bodies on a grippy surface. Bad move! Anyway, it was no big deal considering we had two spunky as chicks getting down and funky together. Perhaps we should have auctioned off the couch covered in girly sweat and stuff. Any bidders?


    2805 - 2819 Megan A
    Cass:
    Well, of course I'm going to say that this model is my favourite, because she's one of my most beloved friends. Actually, mine and Meg's story is a slightly sad one with a bitter end, and a scattering of joy and lust mingled in between.

    Everyone who knows me knows that I'm not a real girls girl. It's not that I don't find girls attractive, it's just that they have to be a special type of woman with a strong sense of character and a sexy fiery personality. Megan was one of the only girls who has ever really given me butterflies and sent me semi-crazy every time we spent time together. The funny thing is that I didn't really understand her when we first met (which was through my dear friend Katrina), but over time our friendship became very unique, and in all honesty, if she hadn't left when she did, that hungry pash we indulged in on her last night may very well have evolved into something far more horizontal.

    The funniest part was that, after all that, I ended up seeing her totally naked during a shoot for Abby. Crazy that!
