Nothing Ventured nothing gained.

The story for the image below is a simple one. My original idea for the shot came from a fellow photographer by the name of Bettina Rheims. If you haven’t seen her work make sure you check it out. After seeing her shot I immediately thought of my version. Not sure how this one will be perceived but I’m interested in the feed back. I must warn you that if you take my images too seriously you will hate me.

I would like to thank my model for thinking outside the box, special thanks to my make-up artist Clivia and thanks to the police officer for not arresting us for indecent exposure.
