#7 – Toxic Punk Headshot

I wanted to shoot with model Toxic because her skin looked so perfect in all her images. I’m a sucker for good skin – one of the reasons I wanted to shoot Janet as well.

Toxic doesn’t like using other MUAs, so she did her own. Probably a little light for most of the images. But then I wanted to do something wild with face paint and she did this. I think she used gaffer’s tape on her skin to get those perfect lines.

This is a classic high-key beauty image, but she isn’t a classic high-key beauty. Beautiful but alt.


#10 – Voltaire Concert

Picking the first 17 wasn’t too hard, but getting down to ten was painful. There were a couple of images that vied for #10, but I selected this one.

Kind of funny that one of the top 10 wasn’t even a model photography picture. Instead, it was a concert image. So why did I pick it?

Because it captured the moment so well. It was a concert and Votaire is pretty comical and satiric. He had a couple of fans up on stage singing the song with him and I shot the horizontal image. Of course what made it was someone lifting a glass in the foreground. Just added the feeling the image needed.

Goth Swimsuit Ms October

Scarlett St Vitus was the first model we knew was going to be in the calendar. Matter of fact I did a test shoot with her to see if you could oiling a pale model’s skin worked the same as a tan one. It did, but the image was a little tame after we did all the other big concepts.

For Goth girls October is the most important month, so Scarlett is very honored.

This image is my favorite shot for this month, but not the one used for the calendar. I actually don’t have that one.
