About me
We used to run active studio and our work is published worldwide. Now-days we are husband/wife art studio and do selective editorial work.

As long as we find you ideas publishable - we'll work with you. We're not charging models, neither we'll do types of work that we find not interesting for any payment.


PS. We recently moved to San Diego area. Probably will take some time for us to settle down.

Here's list I was able credit so far:

One but highly obligatory requirement for models contacting us:
you must have plain full body, sitting and portrait images on your page (same as CompCards that you submit to agency). All that other artistic etc ... stuff is only good as reference if it was published or recognized in some other way.

Also, starting your initial conversation with rates or extensive presence of $ shaped eye catchlights in your portfolio most probably will not lead to any further conversation.

Feb 08 2009. Worked with model  Curare. Thank god from time to time there are local models in this town who are pleasure to work with. Bad part - it's university place and they tend to move out sooner or later. Anyway worked for an hour or so with great pleasure, then run out of loaded film in holders and one of power packs started to behave funny (bad sync cord?). Instead of reloading new film and sorting out flash problem we decited to see what will develop on the film and do another session later.

Here one of scanned negs:

Camera Sinar P2, Lens Nikkor SW 150mm. F32 1/200sec Speedotron Elipsoidal on back ground (1 KW/s), Speedotron 8' Fresnel on model 2Kw/s.

Feb 15 2009. Worked with Deb from Bloomington. She's natural retro/pin up girl right from the door, preparation for studio work was minimal and largely unnecessary. We did mostly light testing, worked for almost 2 hours.
Here's one of BW negatives:
http://www.victoriasphoto.com/models/DebDeVine/big/deb-bw-2.jpg

Camera Sinar P2, Lens Nikkor SW 150mm. F23/1sec 4 Speedotron heads bounced off ceiling (~6KW/s).

Camera Sinar P2, Lens Nikkor SW 150mm. One light - Speedotron Elipsoidal on Speedotron 4803CX pack set to 2Kw/s

Feb 21 2009. Was asked by MM to not display images with nudity on front page. Policy thing - need to respect advertisers, I replaced images with links & warnings.

Feb 22 2009. Worked with  Curare, we're doing editorial for one of fetish publication for next month, that's what theme is about:

PS. I see several people trying to emulate Type 55 in PhotoShop. Above is how real thing looks:)

Feb 28 2009. Chrystyne was here. We had chat, took some pics. One of important sides of modeling - intelligence and deep understanding of art, life and career is what often is just passed on the side and wrongfully ignore in model. IMHO intelligence and right state of mind is what makes model. Anyway, enough babble, here are pics:

Latex B/W TMAX-2 400:
http://victoriasphoto.com/models/Chrystyne/big/Chrystyne_bw_2xx.jpg

Camera Sinar P2, Lens Schneider Super Angulon XL 90mm.

It was my 1st time using new Kodak TMAX-2. I had long time supply of old TMAX but eventually runed out of it. Anyway, I still get to get a feel of this film. Image above I developed as before using HC110 dil E 8min in rotary drum. Neg on light box looked rather contrasty, but scanned fine. Next batch see another B/W bellow I did 6.5 mins, a bit less visual contrast. Anyway, I may try Tmax RS as Kodak suggest (I never had good feel of it).

Apr 18 2009. Deb was here. She is amazing, I opened the door and here she is all sharp and in style, not sure if modeling even applies to her - that's her lifestyle and mind set.

Anyway, took some polaroids:

Apr 19 2009. Curare was here. She had nice pink goth outfit with matching hair ... to finish pink theme she also brought pink puppy & pink yogurt. Before we got to yogurt & puppy we did regular pics:

Sinar P2, Nikkor 150mm lens, Polaroid Type 55 negative. F16.
I do not think that this pic breaks MM nudity rules, but if pple will complain I change it to link

Here's scan from Kodak Portra 400 Negative:

May 04 2009. Decided to go to Columbus, OH Haunted Warehouse GroupShootColumbus, OH Haunted Warehouse GroupShoot. Here's my preliminary schedule working with models there:


9-10   -- Signup walk over --- * beesknees
10-11  The Gotham Girl *
11-12 OPEN Alex N *
12- 1  -- Break --- *
1- 2   Goddessangie1 *
2- 3   Naughtya  *
3- 4   Natasha Fatale *
4- 5   Tabs Doll *
5-6    Sophie *
6       Alkemie *
[* - confirmed]



Most probably I'll just pick 5-6 locations on location and move lights around, once light is setup I'll need 10-15mins, so I'd guess walk by's by registered models is ok. I'll post locations later.

Here's preliminary location schedule based on Laura's MySpace pics. I can adjust it a bit based on inputs, but can't jump from floor to floor frequently - too much stuff to move.

Basement 9-12AM
Boiling tanks
Hallway

2nd floor 12-2PM
White broken glass room
open warehouse floor

3rd floor 2PM-3PM
Broken elevator cage

4th floor 4PM-7PM
Bathroom
Open warehouse

Main floor (maybe)
Medical things - is there dental chair there?smile

Outside (maybe)
outside


PS. I'm looking for assistant to help me move lights etc. I have rather bulky film 4x5 setup(: In exchange I'll let you use my light setup and take pics and can cover entry fee. Assistant needs to have own optical/IR or Skyport wireless trigger and be not disturbing.

May 23 2009. Traveling to event was rather nice. Sinar C2, 2 lenses, couple of stands, 2 speedo 1K powerpacks, 1 speedo ellipsoidal light and one 102 head, misc stuff, film - I ended up with 42" long tenba bag & travel bag weighting ~120lb ...

As planned the schedule - set things up in the basement, just to find out that I'm missing power cords to both packs &%^$*#!!! Glad that I used Columbus Camera Group camera store to mail order few things before. Called them up - they got cables. Luckily one of photographers was off for an hour because of "no show" model - he gave me ride to the store.

Pretty soon I realized that  moving my stuff from floor to floor in assembled form is just no way. Stayed in the basement all day. Missed few models because of that (or maybe they didn't showed up). Did only polaroids this time.

Anyway, here are few pics from there, I may add more as I go over negs.

Same setup as above. F16, 1 sec

Jul 5th Curare was in the studio. She brought some wires, we did weird stuff. Somehow when shooting E6 slides I misplaced film holders and instead of using 2nd film holder I reloaded 1st. Guess what - double exposure is what it is called:) Plus to that when I loaded film in to Jobo ATL somehow chemistry volume got set to 45ml instead of 1L, I did realized that, but only after 1st developer did whole cycle ... anyway, here's what turned out, I actually like it, I bet pple can spend days doing this in Photoshop:

Jul 15th worked with Bella Apryl. She lives in near by town. It was fun session. 1st session, so we changed lights/outfits to get familiar. I also did experimented with different types of film for my own curiosity. Fact is that Polaroid type 55 that I like is out of production, I'm looking for ways to replace it. I'm working of few ways to develop negs from various of alternative film emulsions some give very interesting aka 60's color film look. Here are examples of different emulsions.

Classic/modern Kodak EPP emulsion. Standard development in E6 chemicals:

http://www.victoriasphoto.com/models/BellaA/big/E6_1_4med.jpg

Polaroid Type 55. Out of production and probably history. There's project called Impossible project in Netherlands that has hopes to restore Polaroid process, but mostly they are about color/Integral process, not instant negs.

http://www.victoriasphoto.com/models/BellaA/big/Type_55_1.jpg

My experiments with alternative negative emulsion - well a bit laughable, but hey, I like it:) except chemicals that I currently use to do it are a bit nasty.

All pics - camera Sinar P2, lens Schneider SuperAngulon 72mm XL. 1/120sec F22.


Jul 16th Amy visited studio for 1st time. She has  natural airy flying summer clout nature, I had rather to constrain her cause of work flow with large format camera - my light stand weights 140lb:) and I have to focus, load film etc. ... 3 hours, floor covered with piles of polaroids. It was fun.

Dec 6-17th Had trip to sunny San Diego, well 1st week actually reminded me Seattle:) Drizzle & rainy, but warm. Second week was just pleasant.

I had absolutely no luck with any locations, and my hotel was so DULL, DULL, DULL. Anyway, only hotel room photos.

Worked with Devin Marie, she had very nice latex with her. Here's her on small lamp table in guest room:

Jan 30th Modelnola and her husband been in area at business trip, she's from LA and ended up in freezy IL winter. Weather really got cold recently. Some weird artifact of global warming I presume. Whole thing was rather spontaneous, cause it was business trip, not so many clothes. We just did nudes, by MM rules I can post links only:

Feb 20th We had a bit of break in cold icy weather and Tasha vonBleu had time to get here. Wish this winter will ever end, not even starting that global warming debate, but after living in this town for past 20 years we started to seriously consider to get snow cleaning machine, never thought we'll need one but winters are getting colder and snowier. Anyway, I loaded 4 grafmatic film holders with TMAX-400 film and ... never used it, we did just polaroids.

Jun 05 2010 Fenne DeMore was here, we did few wide angle polaroids. Turns out this was my last shot with MM model in Urbana, IL, many things changed during 2010 summer and fall and one very tragic event in our family. We been living in Urbana, IL for past 20 years, now moving to Dallas.

Anyway, here is Fenne, true fetish inspiration.
