Erinn greeted us with a warm smile and a cool home, much to our relief cos it's a scorcher outside. After some umming & ahhing about locations, by the fine young Toby and myself, we chose her funky kitchen. Ooooohhhh the possibilities are endless - low cupboards to rummage in, high shelves to seek out goodies, and many sweet/gooey treats to eat. Prue was a wonderful addition to our team. She's got some nifty ideas and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. Yay team.
Nadine did a fantastic job today, especially when the power went out halfway through my shoot, damn it! It seems I have had a few lighting dramas lately, if its not one thing it's another. I was just shaking my head, Pru was on it though, she fixed the problem quick-smart (I'm not very handy). Nadine didn't bat an eyelid though, she was cool calm and collected the whole way though, until I asked her to do the hoola and a bunch of other silly things in her tropical paradise themed bedroom, then she lost it laughing...
This is Maya's final shoot with us before she packs up and heads home to New York, She has been such a great model and I totally enjoyed shooting her, hopefully I will get a chance to visit her! Today's shoot got off to a bit of a slow start, as I had some problems with the lighting setup, but Maya was really paitent and we got her backpack packed up in no time! She had better save some clothes for the plane!
Here is our first shoot back for 2007, and we have certainly kicked it off to a good start with Petria and Maya. The girls did a fantastic job. Petria brought a bright pink lipstick and wanted me to do the shoot wearing it. I did of course, but totally forgot I had it on after the shoot when I was heading out to lunch. What a fright I got when I saw myself in the mirror later, I looked like a clown!
Well we were talking about it in the car, and I'm gonna write about it... we saw a snake today. Actually Annette saw it. While Adora and I were discussing something we hear a voice call out "Guys, are snakes in Australia dangerous?". Adora and I just looked at each other and ran over, just in time to see a big tiger snake slithering away. Annette was so cool about it, telling us how close it came to her. I was just glad we were with a model who is so relaxed about the outdoors, it certainly shows in her shoot too!
Well, ok, we are tricking you - this shoot didn't happen today! But seeing as though we didn't shoot today I thought I should still give you a sneak peek of what happened a few days ago. Aren't they cute?! And, they did a well hot Tier 3 too. Good work ladies!
This was a challenging but great shoot. Poor Susie has a sore wrist so I was on my lonesome today, yikes! Thankfully, Alex and Jilly were absolutely fab together; they seemed to instinctively know how best to please each other, and the tenderness between them was palpable. Here's hoping I managed to keep the camera work nice and smooth, it can be tricky at times, especially when the lens fogs up ;-)
Today was Shelly & Chloe's Tier 3, but our little rascals Gabrielle and Jilly couldn't resist joining in the action for a few pics! I think it was Gabrielle's idea that everyone get naked - not like her at all :) Having already done a Tier 3 with Jilly yesterday those two were quite comfortable with each other - and they couldn't help themselves when they heard Chloe and Shelly were in the other room! Chloe's boobs are of course the stuff of legend, and Gabrielle was stoked to get a hold of them! Maybe we should throw four models on a bed together more often...
This is about my third tier 3 now, and I must say I really enjoy them. I felt like a bit of a perve but today was great fun they are both such fun girls and its good to see such an intimate moment in the flesh. Jilly and Gabrielle had a great time mucking around at the start of the shoot, so much so that I lost my reflector board holder, (as you will see) but I think it was worth it.
Marie is 5 and a half months pregnant here as hard as it may be to believe. She is so tiny in real life. Her partner kept ringing to check up on her, which I thought was cute. She is so excited to become a mother and you can really see it in her face.
I don't think we have ever had a better pairing then these two lovely hippie goddesses. Between the stills and video we had about an hour wait out in the bush. Susie and I being the city girls we are were getting a bit impatient, but Tammy and Jilly were loving it. Just chilling out and relaxing in the bush, splashing around in the creek...or what's left of it. Don't get me wrong, I love the outdoors, but not when there's a drought and every fly in the world seems to want to land on you while your shooting!
Whats that Nico is showing our lovelies on that bed? Thats right, you guessed it, its a copy of the famous Kama Sutra. Do they put any of the moves into practise? Does it work? Are there any Girl-Girl positions in the book? You'll just have to check out their shoot to find out!
Golly, where to start? Priscilla would have to be one of the sweetest girls I've ever had the good fortune to meet - and, phwoooaaawwww, she's a sexy lady too! I'm itching to tell you what ditties we have in store for you in the video, but that'd spoil the surprise. Suffice to say, it involves plenty of pink, and pleasure...
It's always a good day when I'm shooting a fellow American. The shoot went fantastic. Right now Maya is down the road getting some lunch while we wait for the young Ms. Adora to arrive and shoot her video. I'm sure they are both looking forward to it!
Nico hogged the camera most of this shoot, so I had to stand by the side pointing the reflector board at Johanna. But from where I was standing she looked lovely. Johanna really shines in front of the camera, shooting her was a breeze, Nico knocked it over in less than an hour. At the end of the shoot we found a fantastic cactus that would have been ideal to put in the shoot, so we used it in the dressing room, look out for it!
Sheeesh, buzz off you pesky flies. I can understand you wanna get close to the lovely Emily A, but this is ridiculous! Just as well she has a fighting spirit and make-shift fly-swat to wave about. You get'em girl. Anyway, once the battle was won, it was time to get down to business. Emily A showed us, amongst other glorious things, her #1 top position... An oldie but a goody ;-)
I do love being out in the sun on a lovely day! Rosalie and Celina certainly put in a big effort today, hanging out with eachother and messing around in some cool little barns. This was Rosalie's first girl on girl experience, so she was both nervous and excited, Celina really took control which was fantastic. I shot quite a lot of this set, which was cool, as I hadn't really had much experience shooting the girl on girl stuff.
Ahhhh, the joys of a good boogie. Nathalie can certainly strut her stuff - I've got a few new moves to try out now :-) She managed to avoid any major blisters or friction burns, thankfully, although I reckon her muscles may ache a tad tomorrow. Never mind Nathalie, your rippa physique will be great compo!
Wowzers, watch out, Denae's got some feisty moves up her sleeves. Wouldn't want to get on her bad side eh. Funny thing is she's actually a total sweetie, wouldn't hurt a fly. Denae ran and jumped about, played a tonne of sports and generally just enjoyed mucking about au naturale. Who's gunna argue with that?!
Today I had the pleasure of shooting our lovely little lass May. She's going home for good in a few days, but I'm hoping she'll post on the boards every now and then to let us know how she's going! She's been such a pleasure to shoot for the last year and it's always sad saying goodbye to lovely models like her! Today was her IM, and I reckon you are going to enjoy it thoroughly.
Oh, What a day...What a day. Went a little something like...planned to shoot on the beach...overcast in the morning...found a new location...too noisy for video...sun comes out...back to original plan...off to the beach we go...model has to be at dance class by 4pm...no shooting video then...shoot going fantastic...annoying men keep walking by...back and forth...same 2 guys...again and again..."No sir you cannot stay and watch!" In the end it all worked out...which always seems to be the case. Just another day here in Abbyland.
Sometimes, the best laid plans don't turn out the way they are meant to. Sometimes, everything goes off without a hitch, but today was one of those days where nothing seemed to go right! But, what can you do? It's a beautiful day and we had an amazing location to shoot a stills-only Tier 2.9 of our lovelies Portia & Alex T, and they looked gorgeous as per usual of course! The backstage pics from this set are awesome, and there might even be some backstage video lurking around somewhere too...
Leesa has low blood sugar and about halfway through the shoot she started to get a bit sluggish. We couldn't have that happen so off I went to the milk bar for some lollies. Whilst I was there I started to feel a bit sluggish myself. Nothing a bar of chocolate couldn't fix though.
Today I felt like I was a bit more on top of things, I kept checking the light, I got Katy into a bunch of different positions and all in all I think it went well. Katy did a good job she was a bit chilly to start off with, but she sooned warmed up. Nico had a pretty relaxing shoot, leaving me alone to do my thing while she chilled in a lilo, nice work if you get it.
I really want to get more practice shooting on my own, I tend to rely on Nico too much to give me tips and help me out of potential problems, today was not much different. Katy did well, I ran into a few problems with light going flat, but all in all it was a pretty good shoot. We are shooting Katy again tomorrow, so I hope things go a bit better then. I think I'm getting impatient with myself, hopefully all these things will click into place soon.
Maya was a complete legend. In fact, combined with my trusty assistant Toby, we made a super team (can I be Wonderwoman then?). After alot of running around, climbing trees and gathering branches for a camp-fire demo, Maya got all puffed out. And in 37 degree heat too - phew!
I think it would have been impossible to go wrong today with these two models. The only thing that did go wrong was Petria's dog barking during the middle of the video. Once he started I quickly grabbed him and locked him inside...or at least thought I did. About 10 seconds later I could hear him again. He managaed to make his way up the stairs and out the doggy door. Sneaky little bastard.
Kaitlin is hot, like really hot. She is pretty flexible too, shooting her was a total breeze, all I had to do was aim and try and keep up with her! I did this shoot all on my own, without Nico's help, but I think I did pretty well and a big chunk of that was thanks to Kaitlin.
These two lovely ladies had a trick up their sleeves, which explains their request for paper... Ahhhh, nothin' like a roaring fire to get you in the mood. Kaitlin & Sue-Ann were all cosy in front of the fireplace when I arrived, complete with mischievious grins. Susie was her usual fabulous self and had the scene good-to-go on my arrival; hope I didn't get my butt in the way of your cool shots! S-A & K couldn't have picked a better day for some snuggling action - it was chilly out. Even a thunderbolt boomed out during the shoot! Quite apt really as it matched the fireworks that was going on inside ;-)
