“What a nice afternoon for royal company. While walking along the sea side I turned my head slightly and noticed an odd yet fascinating sight. A couple, not madly in love but not happily in hate either, stood by the sea. A tainted geisha and a dirty pirate, heavily influenced by the fashions of the royal court, stood silently. Obviously enjoying the attention.”
Sunday morning, after a long eventful evening of debauchery at the Queer bash, my slightly altered mind, Lloyd’s precise photographers skill, Aurora and Chads carefree bad-ass attitudes and above all else Jenny Ruths creative make-up and hair visionary styling created these pieces.
This shoot started simply with an inspiration found by my good friend and make up GENIUS Jenny Ruth! I brag about her so often, I actually think I have more of her cards in my wallet then my own. And I wont stop!
The two wonderful models, Aurora Chan and Chad Macrae were polite and super comfortable in front of the camera~ Thanks for owning the crazy creatures we turned you into.
Lloyd Barnes (Must be good, see last name) was the most particular photographer I have ever worked with- don’t you know why? EVERY shot was perfect!
