Two Sisters Nude Portrait. Reservoir Dogs was a very popular film at the time this was shot. The girls came up with the idea, sourced the props and styled their hair. All I had to do was light it, pose it and photograph it.
Twenty nude portraits of women that reflect their personality and lifestyle. Many of the images have been pulled from my archives and have been re-edited. When I did several shoots with the subject they have been grouped into a set . A new post featuring a different sitter will appear each week
