Rusty & Katz

I had the opportunity to spend a weekend with a fantastic pair of talented art models, Rusty Shackelford and his lovely wife Katz Pajamaz.
We spent the first day, a Saturday afternoon in a hotel suite, rearranging furniture and generally brainstorming concepts and ideas, a few we worked out before the shoot and some came to mind once we were there and saw the space. Using a combination of natural and artificial light it was a lot of fun simply working through our ideas and trying new ones. 
Secret Spaces
Sunday morning, day 2, we were determined to be out at a desert location at daybreak so we got up butt crack early and hit the road before 5, we were generously rewarded with a spectacular sunrise.
I had a couple of places in mind but as usual we were also open to what we found out there.
I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to collaborate with these two, they are both so very artistic and work together so well, they are what I would say is the perfect team!
The Confusion Of Man
Both have worked with fantastic photographers and artists and it's easy to see why they are highly sought after.
Perchance To Dream
I still have a good portion of the shoot to go through and edit, but I could not be happier with what we captured, but not just that, it was a wonderful and fun weekend with down to earth great people!

"Part of it has to do with the discipline of being actively receptive. At the core of this receptivity is a process that might be called soft eyes. It is a physical sensation. You are not looking for something. You are open, receptive. At some point you are in front of something that you cannot ignore." ~Henry Wessel

Good Clean Fun
