it’s judgment day

The entries are in, and I’m on the jury! The NUDE 2015 PhotoShoot Awards competition is underway. I’ve been looking forward to this day for weeks. Many of the images are excellent. I am one happy bunny. Making decisions about pictures gives my brain a high that beats tea, coffee and even…

it’s judgment day

The entries are in, and I’m on the jury! The NUDE 2015 PhotoShoot Awards competition is underway. I’ve been looking forward to this day for weeks. Many of the images are excellent. I am one happy bunny. Making decisions about pictures gives my brain a high that beats tea, coffee and even rapid-fire solitary word games. Not that I mean to imply that I’m making decisions about these images in a rapid-fire way, I must add. I’m using both sides of my brain (metaphorically, perhaps), one at a time, at a combination of different speeds.

…this page features me in ‘MAIDEN GUARD’, ‘NETS AND SHADOWS’, and my favourite ‘NOR TODAY MR WOLF’ [sic – let’s assume the wolf had been pestering me on more than one occasion], as well as many of my esteemed model peers such as Ivory Flame, Raphaella, Ella Rose and Roswell Ivory, to mention just a few.

charisma and composition

It occurred to me just now while browsing images that there’s a relationship between model charisma and composition that I hadn’t noted before. The strength of the subject’s presence and their conviction in manner or expression can make the difference between a weak, failed composition and a dynamic, successful one. (And I don’t just mean the technicalities of gaze and gesture, which in my mind already come under the remit of ‘composition’.) Sounds obvious now when I write it, but I only just conceptualised it to myself.


Michail Jarojov’s jewellery and accessory designs, a.k.a. Mjaro Boutique, are intricate, symbolic, sometimes geometrical and sometimes sensual, and in his own words, philosophical. I discovered his work online and we arranged to shoot these pieces in London with photographer Eric Schneider. Make-up artist Asta Gost designed the heavy, forlorn gothic countenance to go with the look.
