Meet Christina, the beautiful Romanian Model, based in Abu Dhabi but who travels the world. I found Christina on Model Mayhem while searching for models to shoot in Dubai. I was visiting Australia in February 2016, with a stop off in Dubai, so it was a great opportunity to get a shoot in or two.
We only had 2 hours to shoot in my place in Dubai, a 34th floor apartment. It was some natural looks, minimal makeup, nothing too fancy. The setup was kept minimal also, using just window light for the majority of the shots. For the last set on the bed, I introduced a speedlight into the mix. I experimenting playing around with it as a fill light for some shots and using it as a key. I had connected to a pocket wizard, so it was wireless and hence Christina was able to play around with it.
Anastasia was another fab model that I met on my 2015 LA Trip. Anastasia is a Russian born, Model / Actress based in LA. I can’t remember exactly how we got in touch with each other, I think she seen my instagram post looking for LA models and she liked it. I followed it up then.
Anastasia has the most amazing blue eyes and a distinctive look. She has a fantastic athletic figure and is your regular gym bunny. I shoot with a mix of windows light some looks but the majority of lights I was using the flash on camera with the flash bracket.
I met up with Roz back in March 2015 on my LA Trip. Roz moved over to the States a few years now and is doing great for her self. Modelling, acting as well as some other work in the mix, she is kept busy.
One of Roz’s best claim to fame of the last while has been her Model Bombing video where she entertained the men of LA in lingerie. See below:
Here are few shots from a quick shoot I did with Katy Evans during my 2015 LA Trip. We shoot around the Santa Monica Pier area on a very hot day. Katy is featured a on ArsenicMag these days, especially on their SnapChat, so get on that if your a big snap chatter.
Here are a few snaps of Nadine who I met up with and shoot on one of my 2015 London Trips. As you have guessed by now, the shots are NSFW ( See all NSFW posts here) I have up until now ( March 2106) being holding back on all my NSFW shoots.
I aim is to create classy, beautiful images showing confident women who are not afraid to rock what they got. Let me know what you think of the shots. Are the beautiful images or do you think that they are distasteful and smutty? Let me know in the comments, I am interested in hearing your thoughts.

I have been heading over to London for syndication shoots with agencies over there for the last year, but haven’t posted any… (haven’t been doing enough posting in general). Syndication basically means that pictures are taken with the aim to sell them to various magazines and papers. The kind of shots that I have been doing over there are mostly glamour shots, i.e. sexy shots where the girls are often topless & implied nude. It is not something that is done over here in Ireland as there is no demand or industry for it. All the Lads Mags, Page3 etc. are all based in the UK.
With a standard Ryanair flight to Stansted at just €19.99, it is fairly cheap to head over for a day and shoot. A usual trip involves grabbing a flight over, renting a studio for the day and shooting away. The best of the shots then get sent off to the syndication company who try to sell the shots for me. Easy.
One of my first trips over there was about a year ago. I was shooting with the fab model Lauren Wood, whom is currently with Nine Model Management, a relatively new glamour agency. Lauren was fantastic to work with. Being confident and stunning made my job very easy.
The studio I rented had fantastic window light, so I utilised this for a lot of the shoot. Shooting with a Canon 50mm 1.2L, it soaked in all the light and gave a nice shallow depth of field, blurring out the background.
Things are a lot different over in the UK in terms of glamour. Being Topless for shoots is no big deal. There is no fear of a little nipple for shoots. Of course one can say that its trashy, disrespectful to women and all that jazz. My aim is to try capture tasteful glamour shots. Don’t be afraid to let me know in the comments what you think of the shots 🙂
