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…
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…
She knew when she came for the interview that she had overdressed somewhat, and the look she got from the other woman in the blue chip organisation confirmed their disdain for her stripper heels…
But she had heard on the grapevine that the Chief Executive she was going to meet, and be interviewed by, was a confirmed leg man who had a passion for seamed Fully fashioned Nylons. She had caught him looking unabashedly at her nylon legs for some time and decided as they took a break for coffee to take control…
First getting him to lick the bottom of her shoes and feel the sharp point of her uber high heels, she knew she had found a submissive streak in this powerful captain of industry.
Soon she had him a compromised state, and showed that the significance of a tie is not to be the best dressed man in the Universe, but a form of bondage transforming him into a chattel exhibiting his servitude, she a Dominant emancipating him from his staid and stuffy daily routine.
The Force of the Nylon was overwhelming to him, feeling the black foot Nylons gently flirting across his back, and kneeding into the aching muscles from the mornings workout…
He confirmed the Contract with a kiss of her high arches! Wishing he had the nerve to lick along the lurex seam and see where the journey might end…
Never underestimate the power of a Dominant female, who knows what she wants and how to get it.
This is a short excerpt from one of our photo novels. If you feel you have what it takes to star in this as either persona, do drop us a line as we always can fit in a new shoot to Wow the Masses!
Some models were simply made for retro Burlesque/Pin Up style shoots.
And this was one of our first attempts at going full tilt with the style.
It is worth noting that whilst we had a reasonable Canon consumer camera at the time…
We were actually shooting with a set of Builders Lights purchased from a hardware store.
Hence the odd assortment of shadows that have manifest on the images.
Its funny when you look back at old work. One has a sense of knowing and wishing that we could travel back in time and re do the shoot again with all our current kit, knowledge and experience. Alas, models come and go and this retro beauty, as far as we know, retired from shooting not long after working with us on this set. Its a sad loss as you can see she was good at striking pose or two…
We hope by showing our flaws and development that this encourages you to have a go at chasing your dreams. Everybody has a starting point and after eight years we are still learning something new every day. So get out there, find a good model, have fun and shoot something cool that pushes your boundaries to become a better creative.
We Trust you can see the humour in the title as this young lady had an uncanny knack of curling her top lip in an Elvis style…
The purpose of this shoot was to go for some fashion shots and classy boudoir to revamp the budding models portfolio.
As you can see she has a fabulous figure, tall and slender, and poses well
She took very well to the three styles we envisioned for her, and had a lot of fun during the fast paced shoot.
It also gave us the opportunity to try out some new retro foundation wear we had purchased with a modern twist. The grey shaping body worked like a dream at accentuating the best of her figure.
We recommend always guiding a model when putting on Fully Fashioned Nylons. Many young ladies will not have come across such delicate material, and we recommend they wear gloves when putting on the stockings, otherwise it is easy to get the inevitable snags and a pair of £20 nylons are ruined.
But then again some people like to see a run in a stocking, almost as much as they like to see the way old nylons wrinkle as they do not have lycra in them to provide some degree of stretch like modern yarns.
We enjoy helping models find a new look or style and revamp their portfolio. We provided all three outfits, stockings, pantyhose, props and styling for this shoot, and I find you’ll agree the results are rather splendid.
If you are having a tough day at the office this should brighten your senses and put a smile on your face. Copious amounts of seamed nylons to en-trance you in what is a fun little caper…
Continuing our theme of showcasing people who we think are rockin’ it in the Nylon World we would like to introduce a lovely young lady who we at first thought was French, but in fact hails from Belgium.
Nonetheless the French speaking accent does set the pulse racing of many a warm blooded male, or female for that matter. Above you can see her teasing her boss wearing Fully fashioned Nylons…
And here you can see her trying on Nylons and Pantyhose.
Whatever guise you see her in she will always be wearing Killer Heels from the best designers in the World
She looks like ‘Butter wouldn’t Melt in her Mouth’, but is a very sexy lady with an awesome website. If you would like to get to know her in more detail, pop on over to JULIE SKYHIGH
There comes a time when you have shot your muse many, many times and the flow is fabulous, and you get great results, and you feel like it is time to add in a new challenge.
When your muse is your partner and you tell her you want to shoot other women, it can pose an initial problem. A problem that has to be broached delicately as initial thoughts are that you have got bored with the working relationship. Far from it. The working relationship was to set the standard from which all other assignments would be judged. Also, when not shooting my partner I engage her awesome creative skills as an adept make up artist, or in more recent times as a second shooter as well. Behind the scenes footage is always of interest to a lot of tech savvy followers who like to see the kit in use as well as the end result.
So here is the first model I shot with when making that next move. A delightful young lady known on Modeling websites as ‘BrightonBlonde’. She was my first, and as far as I can see still works today and is very popular. She is tall and slim with very long legs and that means she is perfect for showcasing nylon. Considering this was my first deviation with a new person I think it went exceedingly well.
We provided the outfits and stockings. Over time we have built up quite a collection of outfits, stockings and props and the current quota runs into thousands of pounds worth. To get the best out of a shoot you need to invest a lot into it…
Occasionally, we take on advertising assignments…
This is a Revamp of a shot we did for a well known lingerie chain in Sussex. Complete outfit and stockings are Chantal Thomas.
Shooting in a classical Pin Up style is something we really enjoy, but we can shoot high key fashion equally well…
If you have and desire to capture cool attire we can supply the right sized models, the right age models and shoot creatively in the studio or on location to achieve a great result. Just drop us an email by return…
Its a timeless experience walking on a pier in England, and nothing beats the splendour of Eastbourne. That is why we headed to the Town to shoot two retro inspired lovelies.
Admittedly, this shoot was conducted before a fire ravaged the pier and took away over a third of its unique Victorian/Edwardian structure. Under the ownership of Sheikh Abid Gulzar the structure is being refurbished and is back in service.
One of the elements of English Seaside history has been the Cheeky Postcard! A quintessentially English take on humour that often expressed our repressed sexuality emerging with a few ‘tongue in cheek’ laughs. Well, a pier is a perfect place to re-enact such capers as the wind whistles around the structure and haphazardly lifts a ladies skirt to reveal her stockinged attire…A delightful view that could set the pulse racing of any warm blooded male who was privileged to get such a transient glance.
