the black velvet session; arthaus; ca. 2018

like most of my creative endeavors, it was something i fell into, that i hadn’t planned. and i should say now that when i say studio, i mean a posed model in a constructed setting.

i hadn’t ever thought that i’d get the chance to photograph someone this way until i met my partner, courtney. our first shoot was early in our relationship, with them modeling a custom lingerie set and then just progressed from there.

unlike my #solitarywalker series, where i only take seconds to frame each photo, i take much more time doing so when i’m working in the studio. look for more of this work here & on my patreon in the coming months.
