You know sometimes you just want to shoot a model because they have a distinctive style, look, or persona. Tiina was one of those people…
An ad hoc shoot was arranged at short notice and we agreed to meet in the premises of our favourite purveyor of all things nylon.
In the rush to put everything together, I forgot to pack the radio triggers to fire of my lighting system.
The net result was to shoot or not to shoot…Well luckily I always carry a couple of speed lights, better known as flash guns, in my bag. I didn’t have any triggers so had to go with the flash on top of the camera, which is 99% percent of the time an absolute ‘No-No’. However, needs must.
Tiina made hr best efforts to quickly don the Rubber and Nylon combination that I had provided and made a sterling effort to run through elements of her posing routine.
At the time she appeared to be one of the hardest working and most regularly shot models on the local scene. Now having moved to America I still follow her activities on FaceBook etc where we are friends. (Yes, for the record, I am not a stalker).
All told despite the harsh shadows, not a bad coupe of hours shoot and some interesting shots developed along the way…
We are not quite sure how to label this post, but whatever the title the shoot made for an intriguing style…The tiddly hat worn atop the models head is often referred to as a ‘Fascinator’…
The model had the basic Bodice and lace dress to which we added the finishing touches. Of course ladies would not have worn nylon in those days, but the model had some delightful ink to display on her legs that we wanted to show through, so transparent shiny pantyhose were the order of the day.
Also we showcased one of our favourite props here. An original Jean Paul Gaultier Rubber Umbrella with ornate handle, which is currently on sale on eBay.

We also employed a combination of studio lamps punching light into the scene and natural light as seen in the shot above, whilst partaking of afternoon tea.
We had many bluebells growing in our garden and so found it appropriate to make up a little seasonal bouquet to complement her intricate make up.
We would like to point out that it is illegal in the UK to pick bluebells in the wild…so do take heed as there is a hefty fine if you are caught doing this.
Next accoutrement was a fine ebony and alpaca silver Gentleman’s walking cane. It is worth noting that whilst an expensive item, alpaca silver forming the handle at the top of the cane does not in fact contain any real silver. It is an alloy of copper, zinc and nickel that mimics silver.
Finally, our old shed, that we kept our lawn mower and other garden equipment in, fell down as the roundels of wood supporting its corners had rotted through. The Tin Roof provided to final piece of the puzzle for a different urban backdrop…
We are fast approaching that time of year where the temperature rises to a point that it is possible to get outside and dine ‘al-fresco’.
What better way is there, than to pack a hamper full of goodies and bring along a bottle of your favourite Fizz?
To make seating comfortable and dry we always recommend bringing a floor mat, preferably with a waterproof membrane on one side. The more decorative the better in order to set the right scene.
Of course, its always difficult to know what to wear for such and occasion. Our ladies on this particular day decided to dress up, as opposed to down in some suitable fetish attire.
Crossing a lawn in ultra high heels can always pose a challenge! Luckily they had me on hand so they could cross wearing slippers and then exchange those for the heels when in place. A top tip for those who want to avoid clumps of mud stuck to the heels making it look somewhat grubby, by comparison.
Naturally, fine seamed stockings are essential for a wholly decadent expose.
It wasn’t long before Destiny delved into her more Dominant persona and had our guest on her knees and ready to obey. What a persuasive young lady she is!
To work off the calories from all the goodies consumed they then vacate to our tree area where destiny demonstrated the first exercise of this session, a standing push up or bench press…
Its amazing what you can get up to in an afternoon, and how the Sun and Wine turn your mind into a haze. We’ll let you imagine how this lovely little country soiree panned out…
So we have decided to sell our fabulous ‘Gee Pee Gee’ Back Rubber Umbrella as seen in a photo shoot here. Never used in the rain, it is in great shape, square in form and has a very ‘tiddly’ in other words ornate handle. Click here for more details…

Something we found floating on the internet caught our eye, and it involves lots of shiny latex, our second favourite material.
We have no idea who it is or where it comes from as there is no watermark, so any clues would be very helpful to credit the originator. We like to promote others wherever we can…
Its always to nice to work with new models, and see their confidence develop throughout a shoot as they warm to the experience and find their own style.
We hasten to add that we are big fans of people who develop their own style and personality and we Love helping them find a new side of that persona.
So a delightful model, StormKitty, from Sussex agreed to shoot at a nice friend’s flat in Brighton and give some retro secretary in nylons and rubber a go. The Nylon’s in question were limited edition La Perla BlackFoot style with contrast seam.
The Nylons set went very well, with both an appreciation for uber high heels and nylon foot tease.
We then shifted to experimenting with different lighting to change the mood, and showcase a very shiny rubber two piece, Pink Peep Toe Heels and Jonathan Aston, ‘Burlesque’ seamed Pantyhose.
We know that Stormkitty has gone on to being very popular with her alternative style and ‘can do’ attitude and is now doing around four or five paid shoots a month.
It is always great to give somebody the jumpstart they need to get their career off the ground. We have done it many times to date and are always looking for new talent to help and encourage into achieving their goals and dreams. Not all will succeed, but its a great journey and something to look back on with pride when old and wrinkly and reminiscing with the grandchildren…
Well let’s face it, that got you looking didn’t it?
Today’s post is a celebration of our local dockside heritage.
And also a hint that we can use many places as a fine backdrop to add interest and variety into the mix of how we compose our shots.
Bringing the pictures to life with a little HDR twist also brings out all the lines and textures and expresses just how much detail a digital camera is actually picking up.
The Sun is on its way, so we start to come alive and get out and be more creative.
We Love shooting outdoors and have a wealth of great places in our locality. We always have an assistant or two with us to ward of any unwanted attention, so you can assure you will be safe, but at the same time will need a little exhibitionist streak in you…so no wallflowers need apply!
From time to time we like to invite friends over for a fun shoot. Have a look at this extended episode to see some shots from such a day.
The stockings in question are Cervin Fully Fashioned Nylons with a delightful Lurex seam down the back.
They look like RHT Nylons from the side,
And Black Foots from the bottom. But they pair up very nicely with a classic pair of Louboutin Office Court shoes.
Now add some rubber into the mix, worn by our good friend Helen Ryder.
Who knows how to strike a cheeky pose…
And also add her own brand of humour into the mix for what was to be a great ‘cheesecake’ photoshoot.
Most of our models have so much fun that they end up coming back for more and over time become good pals. Shoots are always a laugh, but the intent is on producing something that pops and stimulates the visual senses…and always with a dash of Nylon!
Today showcasing some of our favourite finds on the net we had to share this fabulously well shot rubber and nylon layers clip. We don’t mind promoting other creators when they are this good. Just look at the watermark to find more…
We are always looking for people to donate rubber outfits for our shoots, or alternatively we do shoot collections for businesses for a reasonable fee. Just send us an email if you would like to know more…
Occasionally, we showcase people who we think are really rockin’ it in the World of Nylon. We especially like to see works that combine art and erotica and something different from the norm. The person we showcase above has a style all of her own and in our opinion she is totally awesome. Slim, svelte and pale with a delicate smattering of ink she is a perfect chameleon with long legs that look simply divine in nylon and killer heels. Even more to the point, there is an edginess to her style that could be comparable to the demeanour of a female preying Mantis. Any encounter with her would blow your mind, but it almost certainly would be your last…
