Dinner and a Shoot with Rain DeGrey

It's been months since my last shoot. Lots of things have gotten in the way - mostly work and lack of time - but I decided to pick up the camera for a spur of the moment shoot with Rain after we got together for dinner. She's lots of fun to be around and we always have lots of interesting discussions.

She loves her stockings and accessories, and I prefer more abstract materials.



All I had in the condo that I could set up quickly was cloth, so I went with that while she looked lovely going for something else...



You never can tell which way things will go when shooting with Rain...


She looked great with what I had. But I'm sure she still prefers her fishnets. Maybe next time :)

Casey Calvert Looking Lovelier than Ever

Usually the phrase looking better than ever is a platitude, but Casey really is getting hotter. With an extra year under her belt, she's got that bona-fide vixen look, a fortunate turn for her blossoming porn career.

This time we get to see Casey relaxing around the studio after a long day shooting for kink.com. She rocks it as always but the photos speak for themselves.






What could possibly happen to cause the expression in the next picture?

London Trip

Happy New Year and apologies for the long absence. My previous year was best described by Dickens:

IT WAS the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way- in short, the period was so far like the present period.

True to the very last word, and still dealing with the present. Hopefully with the support of a few special people, you'll continue to see more posts. If not, I'm working on it. That's life after all. Anyway a new post to bring in a new year...

In my recent trip to London, I met the lovely Adreena and her beau Tom. I could not have asked for a nicer couple. But they had a randy side of course. In no time at all, they were...

On the stairs,



In the bed,



In the shower,


Giving head.


If you read the captions, apologies to Lord Byron. He didn't take pictures though, so we're even. Hope you enjoyed, and see you next time!

Model for a Shibari Art Book!


I'm excited to say that I'll be one of the featured photographers in an upcoming hardcover art book. I'm looking for models in the San Francisco area who can spend one to three days/evenings in late January or early February to be featured in the book.

I'll have my own chapter with 12-15 images, so this is a great opportunity to be published and receive copies of the art book featuring you! The publisher should be printing it in early 2013.

Here's what I'm looking for:

- Female models, roughly 19 to 29 yo. No experience required.
- Good figures and nice faces (slim, fit, or glam)
- Open to full nudity. Being open minded is always a plus.
- Like rope obviously, but no experience necessary
- Must love being part of art, good personality - fun people only please.

As for the shoot itself:

- You'll receive one or more copies of the book. The number depends on the level of participation.
- You'll receive web res pics for personal use.
- Location is Redwood City or San Francisco, probably RC
- Shooting will take place over 1-4 days (depending on your involvement) between Jan 18 and Feb 7

IM me on Twitter, FL, or email me at shibari  @  rue99.com  if you're interested. Thanks!

An Unexpected Muse for the Weekend: Final Day 3

On the final day of the weekend and our last shoot for this trip, we went to the studio. After a little time cleaning up and reorganizing from Masquerotica, we were ready to shoot.

I had a chance to set up my own little kink.com-style shoot.



Then, she surprised me with an arm suspension. You'd have to do this to realize it, but an arm suspension like this is far harder than an inverted single leg suspension. I've had wrist cuffs that support body weight for years, but this is the first time I've used them.





She was so excited by the suspension that she couldn't sleep until 5 am, and I had a lot of really cool pics.

This drew our weekend's shoots to an end as she left to meet other people in her travels. She's gone from SF, but I won't forget her anytime soon.

An Unexpected Muse for the Weekend: Day 2

Saturday was the big night for the Masq event, but we had an afternoon to shoot before that. A little rope on the counter with a weight tugging the rope straight through her crotch and C.H. was looking great. 


The sunlight looked so dramatic that we just shot her on the floor. Her fingers came in handy, no pun intended.


On the big night, I shot the four models together before the crowds came. This is what they call a cuddle puddle.


Once again it's either nudity or alcohol, so there was lots of skin and drinking at the venue, but no real nudity.

I was really happy about how this weekend was turning out, and had one more day.

An Unexpected Muse for the Weekend: Day 1

I posted a casting call for a model in my Masquerotica photo shoot this year. Chux responded, and her profile was perfect. Something along the lines of being an exhibitionist and the more people watching, the wetter she got. I take these things with a grain of salt because people tend to exaggerate, not to mention she hadn't done much modeling before.

A few days before Masq, I asked if she wanted to be a muse for the weekend and she agreed. I didn't know what she'd be like, but it was a good way to jump back into shooting more and out of my hiatus. Neither of us had dinner yet, so I put her exhibitionist side to a mild test while eating. She passed.




Although Chux already told me what she'd be comfortable shooting, I was apprehensive because I didn't see that in any of her pics. She says she loves dancing so I took some shots of that instead, but it wasn't working. I asked if she'd be comfortable masturbating, and she jumped right in.




Not only is she an exhibitionist, but she can cum faster than almost anyone I know. So what happens when you combine an erotic photographer with a lovely exhibitionist model who can cum quickly and easily?




After a few shoots and as many climaxes, I took some artsier looks.


That was a great start. I was looking forward to what the next day would hold...

A different side of Casey: Part 2

While shooting glam on the beach, I couldn't help sneaking in some artsier shots of Casey. The results were smashing - Casey's versatility came though again.



The hardest part about shooting on the rocks is that she was about 35' away most the time. It wasn't easy for her to hear me over the pounding of the waves.



I shoot art shots only when inspiration strikes.


Fortunately, Casey's a very striking model.

A different side of Casey: Part 1

The day before Folsom Street Fair, Casey and I headed to Angel Island to get some shots. By the time we arrived at the Tiburon ferry, we discovered the last ferry off the island would be 10 minutes after we arrived. So nix Angel Island and go to plan B, Baker Beach.

Ah yes, the famous nude beach in SF where nearly everyone is clothed. Except for a few old guys with pot bellies. Nothing wrong with that, but but it's probably not the fantasy. 

Today though, Baker Beach was going to have an upgrade in its nudity. 



While walking to the shoot location, she quipped, "I if I took my clothes off now, I'd probably start to feel horny". Maintaining focus while a couple girls are having sex with vaginas inches from my nose is easy, but comments like that from Casey make my world wobble and spin topply turvy. I'm grateful that comic strip thought-bubbles don't appear over my head.

Casey needed more plain nudes that weren't fetish or kinky. Being her fill-in-the-gaps photographer, I was happy to oblige and scoop up some brownie points. 


We both wanted to stay dry. Her excuse was being a Florida girl. My excuse was I hated wet feet. A big wave came along, and made us double fail. If we're going to be wet, we might as well do it right. 


That wasn't all we shot because I had to take some art shots of her too. Stay tuned for more...

A Day with Casey Calvert at Folsom Street Fair 2012


As Casey's official photographer for FSF 2012, I also got to play bodyguard. Should any other cute, smart and sexy girls require photography and bodyguard services, please inquire for details.

Now back to the main event where Casey always ends up being part of the show even when she's not. A few of the fun moments at FSF.

A Smile for the Camera


Oh look, rope....


Bumped into Starfalls and BF watching the rope.

Back to the show.


Skilled hands at work.


Casey's going to hate this pic for reasons no one could possibly guess...


Getting into the zone


The look.


The master at work.


Finally suspended.

I am a professional. Do not try this with your own camera.

Even sunglasses cannot hide the the stare.

Adreena from the UK

When I was in high school, an exchange student from the UK, Moira, attended for a year. I didn't know her well, but loved her British accent and she was quite the cutie. So ever since I've shot, one of my checklist items has been to shoot with a model with an English accent. That chance came on Sunday with Adreena.




In my imagination, a model with a English accent would be punctual, well spoken, well mannered, and very prim and proper. And Adreena was all of that, except for being prim and proper. Calling her prudish would amount to slander.



Adreena pointed out that most models in the UK aren't quite so stereotypical, but I'm very happy to report my stereotype has kept intact. She was really fun, informative, helpful, and easy to work with. I hope she has a chance to come back someday because I'll certainly be waiting if she does.

256 Shades of Sepia

It was T and L's first time shooting something this bold, but they jumped in without hesitation. Neither the concrete floor nor fan seemed to have any effect on their passion, but they were both responsive to suggestions throughout the shoot. 


They're both involved in the entertainment industry, so maybe that was part of the reason they were so comfortable. But most likely it was the chemistry between them. In either way, the pics were served warm and hot, just the way I like them.

Art Book Shoot with Lily

Some weeks back, I received an invite to be part of the next Mammoth Book of Erotic Photography. This is one of the premiere publications on erotic photography with many internationally reknowned photographers, 75 of them in fact. Needless to say I was thrilled and accepted immediately.




The editor said he'd send an exciting new theme that the photographers would love later on. Fast forward a couple weeks when he shared the theme, my jaw dropped. He needed a couple dozen pics to be submitted so he could narrow it down to less than 10 but only a handful of my images met the theme criteria, much less a couple dozen. 


To get enough photographs, the best way was to do a shoot just for this book. But so many photographs with so little time presented a challenge so I immediately put out a casting call for models.


Many models were interested, but Lily LeFleur stood out because of her enthusiasm. Of course a model needs to look good, but I absolutely love working with models who are unabashedly committed and excited about the project. 


My primary concern was I had never shot with Lily before and her images at the time didn't show the kind of look I was after. She was also fairly inexperienced with modeling. Still, I didn't want to pass up the opportunity to work with someone with such a compelling attitude so I took a chance. 


For 6 days, Lily and I had back to back shoots ranging from solos to multi-model shoots. Lily was everything I could have asked for. She was completely committed to making it work. 



The other models who participated were very excited about the results, too, although none shot more than a day. In addition to Lily, thanks also go to Jenipurr, Andrea Rosu, KatinaRaine, TomiKnox, KrystaKaos, Kathryn, CaseyCalvert, RaindeGrey, Katharine, Dannika, and Zoey who were amazing too. 


I don't want to ruin the surprise by saying what the theme is, but see if you can figure it out from the photos.
