WE ARE BACK…

It’s been a very tough six months, and none more so than the last two as the upheaval of moving takes its toll on one’s stress levels. But, we are now settling in to our new abode and searching for new premises to set up our third studio.

In the meantime, we have received very favourable comments from fans of our News features. Some people, like Roger, are developing their own niche of Nylon appreciation and we are going to showcase the work of people like this who adore women wearing nylons.

Studio and home shoot based posing, and an interesting array of Nylons capture the essence of what he likes to capture.

In his own words…My passion for NYLON material began in my teens, and I remember going into department stores and seeing Mannequin’s clad in those original 100% Non -Stretch Nylon stockings in various colours, on the hosiery department. I always remember going in regularly to see if they had changed the colour……and they usually had.!
Now some 30 years later, I still love that material whether it be used in stockings or nylon underskirts.
I have now taken up female model photography, and shoot models on a regular basis wearing nylon stockings and underskirts, as this is my passion..If there are any models who would like to be photographed wearing them, maybe for their photo portfolio, please do contact me. I have dozens of pairs in my possession, In many different colours.

Roger’s portfolio can be found on PurplePort.com as ROGER PHOTOGRAPHY or he can be emailed direct rogerkeay1@gmail.com.

We Thank him very much for supplying fresh content to showcase, and wish him the very best in finding lovely ladies who are willing to pose in Retro Nylons…

BRITISH SUMMER TIME

Is it time for an Ice cream yet?

Eastbourne Tour August 2009

Well if you are in Eastbourne and the Sun is out it would be rude not to pop down to our favourite purveyor of finest gelato, ‘Fusciardi’s’.

Eastbourne Tour August 2009

And order something as delightful as a ‘KnickerBocker Glory’, a tasty and refreshing treat that simply has to be quaffed down and shared.

Eastbourne Tour August 2009

It provided a refreshing break between takes on our photo shoot at the seaside, and also goes on to prove that you can have some indulgence in your life and still maintain a good figure. Just make sure you savour and enjoy every mouthful!

NURSES

We don’t like to harp on about things like illness or accidents, but there is a universal denominator that can cut through the misery. Whilst many may say it is the sight of a Doctor as you open your eyes that brings a sigh of relief, we beg to differ and would say it is the sight of a caring Nurse.

Destiny Lou Nurses

With this in mind, we take that premise a stage further, and put a light redesign on the traditional uniform you might come to expect…

Destiny Lou Nurses

The beauty of PVC is that is has a nice shiny look and texture and is of course easy to wipe down and keep clean.

Destiny Lou Nurses

The development of Nurse practitioners has passed on many of the elementary skills one might associate with the job role of a Junior Doctor.

And finding a pulse is of course paramount in determining whether a patient is dead or alive.

With the more recent emergence of multi resistant bacteria such as methicillin resistant Staphylococcus Aureus or M.R.S.A. the traditional ‘Taste Test’ has now gone out of the window…

Destiny Lou Nurses

We hope you will take all of the above with the ‘Tongue Firmly in Cheek’ Nature that it is intended! We do value the great work that all our nurses do to assist in the quality of life of patients and helping them stay well.

Add to that, the fact that dressed in this manner we believe there would be a marked increase in heart attacks in the elderly male population.

For those of you who do like the thought of a Nurse giving you a bed bath, we’ll leave you to savour that thought…

LOCAL MODELS

StephSolo 009

When one looks through the modelling portfolio sites it quickly becomes apparent that the number of girls available to shoot in North Kent is scant compared to other areas.

StephSolo 039

When we lived in Brighton, Sussex we had a queue of potential models going around the block who wanted to shoot with us. In Kent its been an altogether different result. In this neck of the woods there’s a dearth of people who put up a few blurry selfies and then ask for fees to shoot.

StephSolo 048

The cost of a studio, props, backdrops, kit, computer runs into thousands of pounds. Add in the skills of a professional photographer, make up artist and post editor/retoucher and there is a whole lot more to consider. In eight years we have rarely paid for a model to shoot unless we have a specific theme in mind and find the person with the right look to match the overall brief.

StephSolo 050

Luckily, from time to time we have found great models who give their time to shoot in exchange for a full set of pictures, with a few edited to magazine standard. These images are straight out of the camera with a few small tweaks in Adobe Lightroom. The fabulous lady here has long legs and a great smile and physique. She has done some promo modelling at Car Meets and has a very popular FaceBook following. With a great attitude and sense of fun we know we will be working with her again…

CHAPERONES

A huge swath of photographers don’t like the idea of chaperones joining a female model at a shoot. We understand the implications of a jealous boyfriend or husband cramping a model’s style and flow, but we have never turned down a female friend joining the session. So here starts our journey on today’s story…

Fluo Girly

In fact, sometimes a friend comes along who is so humble and self-effacing and yet they are a superstar waiting in the wings. One such lady came along to shoot to help a friend and experienced our fun and fresh approach and decided she wanted to try some pin up/ boudoir modeling.

DeeBird BabyDoll

This girl dressed down as a chaperone, but once made up and ready for the shoot looked simply stunning and very pretty. She confessed that she just loved the feel of the dotty pantyhose and RHT Nylons and said she rarely dressed like this in her day to day life. It made her feel feminine and attractive. Also she is a testament to the fact that a girl does not need to be stick thin to be a great model. Her ample figure fitted very nicely into the role of a retro minx, with a cheeky air about her, and an intoxicating smile.

DeeBird BabyDoll

She saw some pictures in the office of me performing shibari Japanese rope Bondage at a workshop plus some art nude bondage shots and confessed that she had always had a curiosity for this as an art form and means of possibly relinquishing control. Whilst she considers herself quite pushy and dominant with bratty tendencies in day to day life, she liked the idea of being submissive on occasion to either a male or possibly female.

DeeBird BabyDoll

So, I put her into a basic Karada body harness with a large grab handle worked into the array of binds and ties down her back. It was easy to demonstrate the power and control this puts into the hands of the Master effecting this restraint by holding the handle and giving her the feeling of being caught in a web. But, Trust is paramount and being a gentleman one knows not to step over any boundaries. This is after all a professional shoot and not a session of consensual bdsm. However, one can see from the shot above that she was in a happy place, and I was proud to have opened up a new facet of her personal experience.

DeeBird BabyDoll

The Art we created this day was truly astounding and such a pleasure to construct. The subtle erotic combination of bondage and Nylon is a genre that I will never tire of shooting and the delight of finding a new model from ‘out of nowhere’ is always a great gift. I also Love helping someone find a happy place and feel good about themselves.

We would like to add that these pictures are not retouched in any way. They have purely been put through a first pass edit in Lightroom and Aperture. So the model is very much as she is in the Flesh. We would also like to Thank the awesomely talented Master Orkadia, who is the edgier part of our team for sharing these tasteful bondage shots. He regularly praticises shibari and has held a number of workshops and one on one’s to teach the rudimental basics of safe consensual restraint. Pop over to his website for more detailĀ ORKADIA
