Sheba mixes bath and pleasure

Not my images, just one of my models mimicking.
This is what you find when you fall asleep and leave your camera where the model can get her hands on it.

No sand up your butt on this beach
Her butt looks better than mine.
But it is 40 years younger...
Outing w/ Nadine Near Tucson, Arizona
She is also the photographer in charge on this set. I'm just a prop.
Erin likes film
Erin graces the cover page on my STUDIO portfolio.
Some models like to use my studio.
She is shooting with my then Nikon F5 & 80-200 f 2.8, for those "got to know" people.
Artistic Physique feeling guilty about hounding me for a motel room for the night. I didn't tell her, but that bed and shower did feel pretty wonderful after a few days in a tent.
Time out for a ride on the lake.

Hannah is cute as a bug's ear and one of the best companions to be on a road trip with because she is as goofy as I am, and she is up for anything.
Sometimes you lose your model over the waterfall.
Pretty good shot from the hip, if I do say so myself. Well... It wasn't like I was going to be able to catch her. She lived.
One of the reasons I don't like cell phones.
People want you to look at their pictures.

Do what you want on break.

Morning Bath in the Boundary Waters
Get them to stomp their feet to check for thin ice
"You want me to do what?"
If their husbands asked them to take off their clothes and go out and lay on the ice, they would tell their husbands to go f__k themselves.
But they will do it for me.
Sometimes getting there is not graceful, especially in your 60s
Hannah & Me
This is what happens when you do fall through the ice. Katy T
We didn't know it at this point in time, but she also had a fractured leg.
Jolene is different. Nice, but different.
Norman Rockwell ?
You can tell when Hannah is done for the day. She also displays the same face if there is a lot of seagull poop on the rock, so you have to interpret her meaning. On this one, she was toast.
One of the more talented women I have worked with is this little lady. And I mean little. We stopped at Walmart and bought those pajamas for her to wear between shots, being the dead of winter. They are for an 8-year-old, and you could have easily stuffed two of her into them. Nia is her name, and she can be found throughout my portfolios, and one of the better photographers I have known.
Fall clean up

Inelegance of being human.

"Really! You have the entire river, and you have to fish right there?"
This lava flow rock is easy on your feet.
The models are always picking up my camera. I don't mind, and I find some strange images when I get home.

"That looks f__king cold."

"I'm going to take a shower while you get dressed for dinner", I said. I came out of the bathroom to find this. Out like a light!

Break time with Hannah
Sometimes people show up.

Dave's Rule: You can't wear clothes in his canoe.
As you have probably guessed by now, my home is a clothing optional compound.

Crashed before she got to sip her wine.
One of the eight Sarahs I have worked with, and one of the better people in this world.
Very rare two model shot. I really dislike multiple models in an image.

Hannah enjoying the foam pool. This is an old lava flow, that's why the rock looks like it does. With a light rain the river will rise another 8 feet and all of this will be under a torrent.
Denise finally wakes up, sort of.
Okay, I guess I will have to share one last behind the scenes image with you. I was testing this material hung from the studio ceiling for an upcoming shoot (See, Night Flight in studio). I didn't want the model falling onto the concrete floor and getting blood all over. While I was up there, I decided to do a little posing myself. In doing so I managed to get one of my ankles wrapped up in the fabric and couldn't get it out. I was thinking how silly it was going to look to whoever found my body, naked, hanging from one foot, upside down by baby blue fabric. About the time my arms were giving out and I thought I was done for, someone walked into the studio. Standing on top of the modeling table they were able to unwrap my ankle. Of course, the camera managed to record the ugly scene for posterity.
