Hello! Okay so straight off the bat I wish to apologise for not posting anything in a while. I have no excuse – I had been lazy.
Not that I had been lazy with shoots. Not at all! I have lots of posts to catch up on, but today I shall be talking a little about my most recent shoot with a wonderful model, Sophia West. A dancer by profession, this was the third time I had worked with her, but there had been a two year gap between this one and the last one (I did a dance video with her the last time, click here to see that).
A lot had happened in that time. When I last worked with her she hadn’t done too much modelling, and didn’t even have a modelling name. I normally recommend models have a modelling name, especially with the internet, as a way to kinda keep their personal life a little separate from their modelling life. It’s not perfect, but it does help. So through our chat during the last shoot I helped her choose her new name. She loves it now.
After our last shoot she started doing a lot more modelling, moving up from lingerie and topless to nude, and dear God, she has a phenomenal figure for nude work. During the two years she did get a lot of shoots in, but for various reasons I won’t go into here, we never did get another shoot in, kinda loosing contact over that time. Well that all changed a month or so ago when I fired off a random ‘hello!’ message in her direction.
So a few messages, a date sorted and a couple of ideas in the bag (though not too many, I usually make it up as I go!), she came down to visit me.
And what fun we had.
When I first met Sophia, she was already a good model, but in two years she now knew exactly how to pose to make the most of her figure, great makeup skills, a good collection of outfits and a wicked smile that looks perfect.
I had a couple of ideas in my head for the shoot, including a couple of outdoor setups that could be done in a few minutes. Luckily days before the shoot I saw a coat in a charity shop that almost perfectly fitted into the design I had for one of the setups. I don’t know if I have mentioned it before, but I always recommend hitting the charity shops for outfit ideas. You can get some fantastic stuff for peanuts.
For the rest, go to Primark!
One other setup is the car shot. That was done right at the end of the shoot. I had intended to do it at the beginning, meeting her at the car park with my camera and just rattling off the shots, but stupid me forgot to bring the sunglasses. No matter, just wait a few hours and get it then. The result came out better than I had even anticipated!
So that was about it, the shoot with Sophia. Because of the issues inbetween the two years (which again I won’t go into), we have a lot of catching up to do, and are already discussing our next shoot. I feel I might have to do another video too, as I am wanting to get into that a lot more!
