It’s Pin up Friday with miss KasSandraKid

Welcome to Pin Up Friday!!!!  WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!! Howdy all!  Well, it took forever to get settled in and set up a shoot, but here at last are some pix from my first Nebraska photoshoot.  When we were starting the big move to Wyoming a year ago, I did a little research on models in the area and came across KasSandraKid’s page!!!  What an awesome array of pix she had in her portfolio, and I couldn’t wait to work with her.  We have been planning our shoot ever since, and last month it finally happened!!!  I live about 20 minutes from Nebraska where KasSandra is from, and we picked out The National Monument as our location for the big shoot!!!

She is a photographer herself and only started modeling a short while ago.  She loves the fantasy realm; I was so happy that she tackled the infamous red dress theme!!!  She has one incredible eye for details, and she was so creative with throwing out poses and setups for all the spots we shot at. She is fearless and ebbs confidence with every pose!!!  Tons of fun to work with, and I’m so look forward to doing it again. Her man Sam came along and the two of them make for a great team!  So without any more jibber jabber from me…sit on back (ed. note:  Wyoming has started affecting his speech) and enjoy some of the pix from the big Nebraska shoot.

35th anniversarry of star wars nose art

Howdy all and happy 35th to Star Wars.

The big celebration is just a few weeks a way, and Florida is getting ready!!!!  Many years ago my friend Sean (of Acme Animation Archives) and I were talking about coming up with some new Star Wars art for his gallery.  We came up with the idea of creating some fictional nose art for some of the various wing groups and fighters.  The idea was pitched to Lucasfilms, and the word came back that we were good to go with some concepts.  Well 5 years later we are running with the drawings, HAAA!

Here are some ROUGHS that we were hoping to get some feedback on so have a look and let me know what you think…. The first two are for the A-Wing group and the Leia is just an idea.

Thanks.

It’s pin up friday with Miss Chelsea Rea

Chelsea and the f-14

Howdy there and welcome to Pin-up Friday.  It has been a long time since I’ve posted one of these, and today I am so pleased to share some pictures from last week’s shoot aboard the USS Midway with the lovely Miss Chelsea Rea.

It was the week of (July the 11-15th)…the big weekend of Comicon down in San Diego and one of the most anticipated weekends of the whole year!  My buddy Nelson Broskey and I have been attending the con since the mid 80’s, and it sure grows in leaps and bounds every year.  We arrived at the con for both Wednesday & Thursday’s exhibitions on the dealers floor, and on Friday we spent the day aboard the USS Midway, CV-41, for our annual Navy themed pin-up shoot.  My friend Scott McGaugh cleared the way for us to shoot on the ship and we were ready to go….

This year we were very fortunate to work with Miss Chelsea Rea.  Chelsea is a San Diego native and is very new to the modeling world, only just joining Model Mayhem last month.  One of her life long dreams is to become a model, and I have to say that those wishes are so coming true.  I saw her portfolio a week before the con; it was pure luck that both our schedules worked out on such short notice.  Chelsea brought along her friend Scott as an escort, and we shot for close to two hours.  Surprisingly, the ship’s flight deck was wide open, there were very few visitors on deck which opened up a lot of areas that are normally swamped with crowds and impossible to shoot at.  As always, the magic of Photoshop helped to remove all of the folks that were in the background but on a smaller scale this time.

Chelsea was awesome and she has such an easy-going and natural talent with her style of posing.  Full of confidence and a beautiful smile, she made every shot great.  Before the shoot, she studied pin-up and discovered that to make the best facial expressions you silently say the vowels, A, E, I, O, and U.  I had never heard of this technique before  but man o man she was right on and nailed it!!!  We had time for three costume changes, and each one she tackled with sleek elegance and vintage flirtatiousness.  She was a fearless acrobat climbing in and on everything on the deck.  I am sure you’ll agree Chelsea Rea is well on her way to greatness!!!!  Tons of fun, and I so can’t wait to work with her again.  So without any further chatter enjoy some of the pix from the shoot and be sure to check out her MM page by following the link below. BE SURE TO STAY TUNED for all the pix from Comicon coming next week.

Katherine McCoy and pinup friday

Howdy all and welcome to another addition of pinup Friday.   Today I would like to introduce you to the ever lovely Katherine McCoy of Apple Valley California. I saw Katherine’s portfolio many years ago and I wrote her a note immediately about setting up a shoot. I quickly found out that Katherine rarely got on her Model mayhem page and my message sat in limbo for a good year or so….. Whenever I would come across her page I would drop another note and finally one day last year She got my message and we were able to set up a shoot… We met at Thompson’s Aviation yard and shot on the East side of the site. I borrowed one of the Pan Am uniforms from the Sony lot and that was our first theme.. Thank goodness for the new TV show about Pan Am which made it possible for us to get a really great 60’s style outfit. It fit Kate like a glove and Mark Thompson moved one of his airline ramps up next to a jet fuselage he had and that made for the backdrop of our shoot. The ramp was a bit higher than the door on the jet so we cheated  and shot low angles to help cheat the setups. Katerine really did an awesome job and really captured the era to a “T”.  We got a lot of great pix around that jet and I look forward to posting more as they get edited.. Our next theme was the beloved Red dress and again Kate made the theme sing like it we were back in the 60’s. She added a lot of her own magic to the red dress and can’t wait to put up more… For our final theme before subset we concocted a stylized pilot outfit  and once she was all ready to go, her appearance transformed from a perfect pin up look, to sultry Soviet cold war spy look. Mark had an old Russian helicopter on the back of his lot and we ran over and took my favorite pictures of the day!!! It was a long wait to work with Katherine but it was well worth it… I love the pictures we took and am so glad to have had the opportunity..  Kate is great and I so hope our schedules will allow for another shoot sometime. When not modeling you’ll find Katherine in college studying food and nutrition and her dream is to land a job as a pastry chef at one of the many Disney resorts.. One of her passions is to help those that have been stricken with cancer, (that’s a subject close to my heart) and she volunteers at the American cancer Society. She is currently training for her second relay for life race and I wish her the best in noble pursuits. Heroes are an occasional subject here on the blog and I would have to say Katherine falls into that category. Thanks for fighting for those that can’t!!!!! For more pix of Kate follow the link below and have a look at some of her early modeling.  http://www.modelmayhem.com/800281

JIN

Howdy all and happy end of the week,,, It has been a long time since we have had a pinup Friday and for today I have a very special young lady I want to introduce you too and she goes by the name of Jin n Tonic.. Jin is an actress/model from Idaho and now resides in Bakersfield California!!!  We met a few months back and did our first shoot on the military vehicles at the Supply Sargent (also in Bakersfield) and had a great time. Jin’s talent for modeling and passion for art of using herself as the medium is without measure.  She was fearless at striking wickedly awesome poses on very precarious parts of tanks & trucks and she added a new life to the vintage word pinup.  I so love the pix we took and working with Jin is a  blast of inspiration,,,,, she jumps right in with ideas and themes to make every set up a lot of fun with fab results from the camera’s POV…. We have more shoots planned as soon as the weather allows and hopefully she’ll give the 60’s red dress ago.  I couldn’t wait to get these pictures posted and am so glad to finally get to do so. to see more of Jin’s work follow the link below and if your in need of great model, be sure to give her a call.   http://www.modelmayhem.com/2218778

it’s pin up friday with victoria vertuga

vic at vasq

Happy end of the week and welcome to another addition to pinup Friday!!! If your a regular viewer and fan of the red dress series than you’ll remember the lovely Victoria Vertuga from previous posts, Victoria was one of the first models I ever shot with a few years ago and the red dress theme was our second outing. Were in the works for another outing and can’t wait!!! Victoria is a good friend and one fabulous model… She so loves to be in front of the camera and she adds so much to each theme. For the classic Star Trek series Victoria attacked the theme with a seriously sassy, and sultry attitude. She is the best and love how she broke all the traditional rules by added her on twist with  boots n pumps, and her choice of props. We shot at the historical Vasquez Rocks and the lighting was overcast with breaks of sunshine  making for a perfect day and shoot… So with that all said enjoy the works of Victoria and this Fridays pinup update.

Miss Elizabeth Meacham,

Elizabeth is a model from Bishop California and her style is athletic and sporty in nature, and she added a very new spin on the red dress theme. Her sleek n flirty poses are so fun and her bubbly personality translated into every picture!!! Elizabeth has no problem climbing rocks and standing on the edge of cliffs in heels and I so love the way she works the camera,,, Liz also got the last spot in the (Science Fiction’s Finest, part one) CD,, fun times for sure.  She has a great talent and can’t wait to back up North to work with her again.

Miss Meagan Moorman,

Meagan and I spent probably a good year trying to set up a shoot and it finally happened a few months ago… Meagan is also a newcomer to the modeling world and well on her way to stardom.. She is a treat to work with and I love her enthusiastic perspective about what she is trying to put across in her images. Her elegant posing style and hypnotic eyes cast a spell with every shot. I was so glad that she was able to attack the red dress theme on our first shoot, and for our next outing she is going to do her take on SUPERGIRL!!! I absolutely can’t wait for this one!!! She is one nice gal with a great outlook on life and she too is from the world of rodeo and barrel racing, A bag horse accident sadly ended her riding ambitions, but with any good cowgirl you get back on after you’ve been thrown and Meagan has done just that with her lovely modeling… I love Meagan’s work and I’m sure you will too!!!
