Did you know that your whole body needs to be fully lubricated to wear latex? No? Well, neither did I until my last photoshoot with British Alternative Super Model Ulorin Vex!
I’ve never shot an alternative/punk rock model in the past, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Before the shoot, I checked out her website, and it was filled with some of the most creatively beautiful / crazy-looking images I’ve ever seen. From doing mostly corporate headshot around Silicon Valley to shooting a latex-wearing, red-haired British model with nipple patches… the transition wasn’t easy. The most risque shoot I’ve done before this was when Adam Pisoni, the CTO of Yammer Inc, decided to take off his tie and shoot outside! *gasp*
After the initial awkwardness of me introducing myself, “Hello Ummm I am Moses… I’ll be taking your pictures today.” and her replying with (in an English accent) “Good to meet you.” Pip pip, cheerio, carry on.” – I added that last part; the shoot went great. We took some full-body pictures, several headshots, and a couple of portraits. Below are some of my favorite images from the shoot.
Ohh, and one last thing… huge thanks to the super sexy and talented Jodie Truong of JodieStudio for creating my new logo.
