Kalani in Las Vegas

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to work model/performer Kalani Kokonuts in Las Vegas.
Beatrice Neumann was kind enough to introduce us. Above is a fashion shot with Kalani wearing a Diane von Furstenberg wrap. Despite it being 108 degrees, Kalani braved the heat and my improvised strobe set-up, and we came up with some nice images.

A few days later, Beatrice shot Kalani in her Jessica Rabbit costume which is one of her acts. I've had the shot of me with "Jessica" on my MySpace profile for about a week now, and people are still commenting how much they love her whole transformation as Roger Rabbit's wife. You can read Beatrice's blog about Kalani and see a nice solo shot of her as Jessica.

Syren University presents KUMI
Secrets of the Glamour Life: So you want to be a Fetish Photographer or Model?

Want to get into the biz? Or maybe you just want to take a peek behind the mystique. Here's your chance to get the low-down and gritty. Full frontal reality of the fetish life! Hot off a plane from working in Europe, Kumi, a.k.a. Kumi Monster, brings direct and honest answers to questions without the sugar-coating. (Don't forget to bring your own questions). Find out about the real differences between the US and European scene. (Type of work, models, standards of physical appearance, websites, parties, performances). Fetish modeling/photography can be loads of fun but offer little profit, so how can one make a living doing this? She'll discuss the ethical, legal, and personal realities of the fetish "industry". Other topics: getting published, getting outfits, copyright issues, travelling, net-working, and making contacts. She answers the ubiquitous question of "can I be a fetish model and not show my tits?", "how do I get free latex?", etc.
