Modelo Ariya Taylor recently posted a photo of herself playing with her dogs in lingerie. She was in lingerie, not the dogs. This made me think of Sharky. Sharky lived at a studio I used every now and then. He would wander onto the set while we were working and hangout. After a little while, he would get bored and wander off. He was always friendly and the models liked him. I often would make him part of the shoot. This photo is from my shoot with Muse. Unfortunately, Sharky is no longer with us but we’ll always have the photos and remember how great he was.
Another in my Monochrome Blue series. I actually miss her. She would text me out of the blue (ahem) every few years when she was in town to shoot. This would create a dolly zoom moment for me and I’d schedule a shoot on the fly. I’ll always have the photos we made and the happy memory that for a tiny moment in the universe, I knew her.
I just entered this photo in a contest. The theme is Seeking New Voices in Art Photography. I wasn’t sure I was right for this contest. Now, if the theme was Seeking Old Cliches’ and Cheap Digital Tricks in Photography I would’ve entered weeks ago instead of at deadline. Seriously though, the big motivator was the entry was free. Wish me ruck!
