Hotel Arts, Part 2

Finally, I can show a little more than my Hotel Arts teaser from a week ago!

We started the shoot by doing some promo photos for the Hotel’s lounge, Raw Bar, and then took to the gorgeous lobby areas to do fashion photography. The hotel was also gracious enough to lend us a room, so we had a chance to do boudoir work as well. I would have loved a two day shoot out of this as I ran out of time and was only able to extensively work with one of the models… At least it leaves more ideas for the next time!

There’s no full nudity in the photos, but if you’ll get in trouble looking at girls in corsets or barely covered in showers except for steam on the windows when you’re at work, make sure you only check these out when you’re in private!

I’d also like to point out I love doing boudoir work, so if you are interested, please contact me! I’ve been doing it for a while, but only recently with models, so I haven’t been able to show it off before these last few shoots!

Elaina was totally channeling Marilyn, but unfortunately I didn’t have much time to work with her – we are definitely planning another shoot in the future.

While Michael shot in the women’s bathroom, I took the urinals! Us girls can justify it since my assistant for the day, Torin, was there :)

Miyuki Divine is also a burlesque dancer, and she had a ton of fabulous outfits.

I don’t know if this one counts as “fabulous” but it makes me quite happy! We couldn’t stop laughing during this part of the shoot.

I love Rydell’s versatile look… I didn’t recognize her from her photos when I first met her. She is one classy chameleon :)

Model LaceyLux had a corset done in body paint by makeup artist Kada Issa, who did an amazing job. The other photographers got photos of Lacey in the makeup, and I got photos of removing the makeup!

Conveniently placed steam is great.

    Is there a word other F’ing FANTASTIC to describe these – I use to do stuff like this back in the early nintie’s with a few photographers, we would get sail boats, yachts, mansions and a group of models and make up artists and shoot all night. It was so much FUN!! secret – NONE of our stuff looked this good!!
