The Models > Julia
Julia was the first model I photographed after moving to Columbia, SC. And it was kind of funny because, at the time, I didn’t really own anything. I had been living a fairly minimalist lifestyle for a pretty long time, buying furniture and whatnot as needed to fill up whatever space I lived in, so I didn’t own a lot of possessions when I moved there. Even though I had rented a two bedroom apartment. In fact, after I moved in, I had a friend in the area who loaned me an air mattress and a kitchen table with chairs (which I used as a desk) so I would have at least somewhere to eat and somewhere to sleep. Literally, all of that space and that was my only furniture.
And my apartment stayed like that. As I started looking for models, I realized I couldn’t use my place to shoot since it just looked like some deranged pyscho lived there. So my first shoot was with Julia was out at a park by the waterfront. We took some casual fashion shots and then moved onto the lingerie shots.
Our second shoot was the first in the Mid-Century Casting Couch series. At that point, I had moved into a different apartment as the first building I lived in had caught fire and had enough furniture to make it seem relative normal.
Great person and would have loved to work with her more but her limitations are to implied nudes and I’m much more focused on shooting nudes and erotica.
