THE GATEKEEPERS....

I am sure there are Gatekeepers for the things that happen in our subconscious.. they are there to keep us sane..

To keep the door closed to the dark side of our personality that all of us struggle with at one time or another.

MY Gatekeepers tend to be Hott and Naked..


I am sure there is some clinical diagnosis for this..
But they help me sleep well at night..

Fashion.... High or Not..

I decided to try my hand at Fashion... But as I was shooting, all I could think of were shots that I saw at an Art show.. Really stark, straight forward images.. Like Edward Weston..
SO I tried to shoot these in that vein..

Thank you to Mz Dezy and Traycee J for enduring Arctic temperatures to pacify my randomness.. and thank you to Traycee's hubby for the "assistance"..

CRIME SCENE: Eviscerated

I was finally lucky enough to get to shoot with Traycee J after missing multiple opportunities to shoot together.. Just talking to her inspires me because she is open to ideas and always brings options to the table..

She gets this twinkle in her eye and this devilish grin when an idea inspires her and you get a glimpse of what is behind her innocent looking girl next door exterior..

I was throwing around random thoughts about the effort it would take to butcher a person and drag their remains to some secluded area.

So she decided to make it real for me.. I shot it like a double exposure and layered the images on top of each other.. So she had to climb in and out of two garbage bags to get these done..

I am sure there is an easier way to do it digitally, but I suck at photoshop so I did it the way I used to do it with film..


THANK YOU TRAYCEE for all your help and input..
and your willingness to crawl over tree roots..



At the same shoot I met an AMAZING SFX Makeup Artist named KIMBERLY KAIN...

After watching her do some really quick fake scars on people I found myself inspired to try something more visual and allow her to do what she does and build around it.


This is the outcome of two people who shouldnt be allowed to play together without rational adult supervision..


Thank you Sophia for putting up with our nonsense and enduring the leaves..
