Asylum Hood studies

This is a quick head study. My designer, Christopher and I came up with this lovely hood for our photo collaboration. He sculpted and hand dyed this leather bondage hood. We have big plans...

My lovely model is Ginger.  Also Christopher made me another breathtaking strappy black leather fetish hood, which I can't help trying it on and snapping a quick shot on my iPhone.

"Butterfly Girls"

Here are some more lovely designs by "Christopher" he also has an amazing blog that shows you how to make bondage leather-ware, very detailed and delightful to read.

These and the previous studies had lead me to my next series,
"Black Cherries".

I am very excited about this new series. I've booked models all this week and I plan on doing nothing else but shooting.

I will also be releasing some limited edition prints in the upcoming weeks (working as hard for the reopening of my online store).

More updates to come...
