When I was in Orange County shooting Musink I had a pretty nice hotel suite and I really wanted to find a girl to shoot in it. Earlier in the week I had shot my friend Jenna Valentine and she told me about a new Gods Girl named Kory Minx who lived out in the OC. I hit her up about shooting and she said she was down if we could find the time but when it all came down to it it looked like the only way we were going to be able to do it is in the morning right before I checked out. Unfortunately Kory was running late and she didn’t show up until 5 minutes AFTER I had to check out.
I was sort of freaking out because I had to be at Musink in 25 minutes and I didn’t think we were going to get to shoot. I didn’t think we would have time to do a real shoot but I wanted to kill a roll of black and white film and I figured maybe I could get a shot or two for Tumblr. I had her get naked the very second she walked in the door and I shot a couple black and white shots and a few color 35mm shots as well and then I pulled out my digital camera. We ended up shooting about 100 photos in five minutes and somehow we managed to get some great shots really quickly. That’s not to say we didn’t miss a ton of shots, but we ended up with a small set that I think we can both be proud of.
Usually when I shoot someone I like to hang out with them for at least 30 minutes or something before we shoot. I think people need to be comfortable with each other if you are going to get good shots, especially nude ones. I barely said two words to Kory before she was naked and my camera was in her face. Honestly she was gone in under 10 minutes and we didn’t have time to say much. In fact I didn’t find out until later that this was Kory’s first time doing a real photo shoot. All her Gods Girls sets she shot her self!
Anyway this is getting long but Kory is amazing, the light in the hotel was lovely and I cannot wait to get a chance to spend an hour or two with her. I think her body is pretty perfect and she is stunning. The feed back I have gotten from the previews I have posted on Tumblr and Instagram have been fantastic. So expect to see more of Kory on here again as soon as possible and expect to see a bunch of my photographer friends trying to shot her in the very near future. In the mean time you can check her out on Gods Girls or click the link below!
Ps. Sorry about the lack of updates but I am at SXSW and busy as hell! Follow me on Tumblr for lots of little updates!
