other side

Photographed by L. Raye
My apartment, Oakland, CA - November 2011

Tomorrow (which in actuality is now today) I should be doing my first trade shoot as a photographer shooting a model who is not one of my nude model friends. I had set one up for a couple weeks ago, but never heard from the model on the day of the shoot, thus deeming myself "officially a photographer," as I had my first experience as a photographer having a newbie model cancel on her.

One of my goals for this year is to start shooting more and create beautiful images from both sides of the camera.


  1. I can't wait to see your work. Hope you'll post soon and often.

  2. I can't wait to see your first works either... good luck to you. :)

    The other day, I took my first self-nude shots in my townhouse. It was nerve-wracking as I've never photographed myself like this before... but after a little while, I was concentrating on lighting and perspective and not worried that I had nothing on... it turned out great. I have a few great shots that I'm going to get printed up and I'll be attempting another first - a nude self-portrait.
