Do you develop your own b/w film? If you were forced to use only one b/w film and one developer, what would that be?

zvaal:

No, I don’t.  I take it to a local lab.  I have plans in that direction though and I am checking out a community darkroom in my area.  I pretty much shoot all b&w film.  Currently probably a slight preference for Ilford Delta 400 Pro but I will happily shoot Tri-X, T-Max, HP5, Fomapan and others as well.

Do you seek out models that are unfamiliar with your work? If so, how do you do so without sounding creepy?

I reach out to models that both know my work and who don’t. I make sure and direct them here before we shoot so they can see what they are getting themselves into. I’m very direct and blunt about what I shoot and maybe that in itself makes it less creepy. But I don’t mind what others think of me and my work. I embrace my inner creep.

How do you go about directing models during your shoots?

Depends on the model. The more experienced traveling models are worth every penny (and you should book them!) because they move effortlessly and without restraint and we simply converse and I shoot and it’s always magic. Sometimes I’ll see something I like and will ask the model to hold that pose. I just like to let the personality of each woman come through naturally.

With less experienced models I’ll be more active in directing, which often includes me laying on the floor seductively (moronically?)  to demonstrate what kind of pose I’m looking for. =)

I am still very much a learner when it comes to directing and communicating what I want, but I’ve grown a great deal in the past two+ years.

What was the last shoot that pushed you as a model? Explain.

The last shoot that pushed me as a model was done over a month ago when I was in Tobermory Ontario. It was a very important shoot and I knew the results were equally as important. I work more and I am known more as an erotic model in the last year or so. This shoot really tested me as an art model, a figure model and having to pose in nature and the weather elements involved. It took me back to the roots of my modeling, which I found very refreshing and rewarding. Thankfully, the results were very rewarding and they will be exhibited in a prestigious art gallery and Carmel California next week. The entire shoot made an impact on me and has made me want to do more art/figure modeling, where I really test my body, flexibility,limits and my strength.
