Violet wanted some photos of her corsets for her clothing line she is working on and so last week I obliged and collected Jaclyn and went out to Violet's place near the river here in London and did some photos. It was pretty rushed. I need to realize that I need to be more realistic with my commitments and having photoshoots near back to back. I never seem to get it through my head that things will take longer than expected and so on. I just want to pack my days with more activity than is possible in a normal week I guess.
Jaclyn n Violet sorted out corsets and accompanying pieces and then they were the speedy quick change artists and put on the first set, checked the makeup and went down to the river bank about 100m away. I did some single shots and some two shots, and we back n forthed to the house to change as they alternated between corsets and even a wig for Jaclyn. I also put on some bug spray as the mosquitos are out!
I also realized that I could maybe do wedding photography with the shots like the one below. I don't have the gear for that and have turned down one or two offers, but it was interesting thinking about it. Violet loved the pics and I think they will do well as a beginning point to showcase her awesome design work.
As for the rest of the day, my next shoot was more artistic/fetish nudes (not with Jaclyn or Violet), and the next day some swordplay with a 42" Japanese katana, and I almost got charged with trespassing. More to follow. :)

Trespassing? Sounds like a story we'd really want to hear.
