just a small note about a selfie

self portrait IV - in which the model takes a self-portrait

…this diptych has been getting some attention recently: “self portrait IV – in which the model takes a self-portrait” – one of the very few self-portraits I ever attempted. A number of people have asked me why I don’t do self portraits habitually, being both a model and a photog.

time flies like a naughty kitty

My sister Elena Tun recently started modelling. In her style she couldn’t be more different from me; classic, ladylike, and immaculately glamorous with a penchant for the traditional and the retro. On more than on occasion we’ve enlisted the help of our  make-up artist Hollie Berry who is also an impressive hair stylist and style advisor.

some flies like a breath of fresh air

I made a fleeting visit back to Blighty in March, so I took the opportunity to take some new portraits of my original and perpetual muses, who provide one of the ideal types of modelling demeanour for me – i.e. no small degree of reluctance, mitigated by good humour.

at last, a naked girl

So far we’ve had child portraits and a nude male, but something tells me this blog might start to generate a bit more traffic after this post, because THIS time I’m blogging about a recent modelling shoot of mine, and the pictures are sexy! Hooray. Continue reading
