STUDIO NEWS: RECENT VINTAGE PRINT SALE

.

This 11 x 14 inch vintage photograph entitled, “Dinner For Two, Philadelphia 1995  is from the book of Tableaux Vivants, published by Editions Stemmle, Zurich, 2002.  The archival print was recently sold to a private collector in Philadelphia for $2500.00.  It was the only print of its kind in inventory and from a  very rare limited edition of prints. The picture is part of a series of Tableaux Vivants I produced between the years 1993 to 2000. This particular photo was staged at the Striped Bass in Philadelphia,  once declared by Esquire Magazine as the number one restaurant in the United States for dining at the time.  Owners, Joe Wolf and Neil Stein commissioned me to make the photograph for an ad that would later run in Philadelphia magazine to promote the famous restaurants “midnight breakfast”.

Diary: Isabella Reneaux – The First Sitting

DIARY: ISABELLA RENEAUX – THE FIRST SITTING

.

The very first sitting with Isabella Reneaux took place just off of Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.  I had been searching for an appropriate location for the days until I discovered the most exquisite boutique hotel in the area.  The next time your in town I highly recommend Rittenhouse 1715.  The atmosphere in the hotel got us in a good mood, making it easier to make sexy pictures. Believe it or not, I am not only inspired by the model I work with, but also the environment I work in.  I could have shot her there for days.  It seemed like days anyway.   Isabella knew just how far she could push my imagination and which part of her beauty to emphasize as I clicked each frame.  She became even more at ease once all of her clothes were removed.

DIARY: DAY IN THE LIFE

.

I had just left the studio for a brief walk to have lunch with a new model when I heard a scream from the back seat of a passing taxi. “Tony, Tony, Tony” she said as I noticed a waive from the passing vehicle.  I quickly turned, a familiar face for sure, but couldn’t precisely place the context of the person that was calling out to me. The taxi stopped. Out of the rear door, a very attractive woman exited the vehicle and proceeded to run towards me rapidly.  My heart started to pound as the day suddenly became more exciting and invigorating.  I remembered who she was.  Natalie, a stunning brunette that I photographed several years earlier told me it was such a coincidence to see me that day, because she was just talking to her girlfriend about my work and that she wanted to introduce me to her close friend. I said, “sure just call the studio to set up an appointment.”  That response wasn’t good enough for Natalie.  She insisted right then and there that I go with her to meet a young blond by the name of Jilian, who was working just down the block from where I was about to have lunch.

We hurried to her friend’s place of employment, a classy restaurant in the Penn’s Landing district of Philadelphia where she worked as a hostess.  Natalie insisted once I saw Jilian, I wouldn’t be disappointed.  She guaranteed that I would want to photograph her, and also mentioned that her dear friend had  a desire to have nude photos taken of her.  We entered the restaurant and sat at the bar in anticipation of meeting my new subject.  As soon as Jilian entered the bar, it was almost as if all the air had left the room.  I could already see through her attire as my imagination transported me to an erotic journey with a woman I just met.  I did everything to maintain my cool as I became instantly infatuated by her incredible presence and beauty.

Jilian explained that she had been talking to Natalie about having erotic pictures taken of her to present as a gift to her boyfriend.  The couple were recently engaged to be married.   Because of her employment status, I suggested it would be wise to create a pseudonym for the set of pictures, as I was certain the photographs would be published by one of the magazines I was contributing to.  Norma Rockwell came to mind, as she reminded me of a character that could easily fit into a perverse version of a Norman Rockwell painting.

“Norma” and I made arrangements to meet at a small charming boutique hotel called the Alexander Inn in center city Philadelphia where the sitting would take place.  I asked her to bring a few pieces of lingerie from her wardrobe for the erotic encounter.  As soon as we checked in to our room I asked “Norma” to put some of her items on the bed.  I picked a few things knowing whatever we selected had to accentuate her statuesque physique. The shoot progressed innocently at first and then the sexual persona of this exotic woman took over as she began to gently play with her genitals. All for the love of a man she was soon to marry.

Diary: Portrait of a Swinger

Diary: Sandra. Portrait of a Swinger

Diary: Portrait of a Swinger

Sandra had a nice modern apartment in the town of St. Pauli a neighborhood that contains the infamous Red Light District of Hamburg, Germany. I knew this neighborhood well,  easily finding her place within walking distance from the Monopol Hotel, located on the Reeperbahn in the same neighborhood.  She was located on the top floor of a 5 story building with roof access and lots of skylights. From her location you could simply walk out onto her balcony and listen to the cat calls, as the hookers lined along the Herbertstrase in plain sight of the St. Pauli police station.  Yes. Prostitution is legal in Germany. Sandra’s apartment provided a comforting setting to light her portrait. I shot on a big red contemporary sofa just off of her nicely appointed bedroom. I used a combination of high ISO with cross processed film, available window light added most of the fill with my ever present ring flash. Sandra pulled clothes from her own wardrobe dressing herself up like when she and her husband invite another couple over for a night of play.  She exuded a classic sex appeal with a mixture of Asian and German looks with perfectly sculpted high cheek bones and a perfectly balanced frame with big hair. She exuded a vibe as if she were ready to please.

Diary: Two Girls From St. Petersburg in Paris

Two Girls From St. Petersburg in Paris

DIARY: TWO GIRLS FROM ST. PETERSBURG IN PARIS

.

I was fortunate to meet Natasha on one of my numerous trips to Paris. This Russian born model with exquisite taste selected a finely tailored (French) pink lingerie ensemble with a short red wig that fit her angular bone structure perfectly. It was the late 1990’s, a time in which I was producing a series of pictures for my erotic books and Penthouse Magazine. I met Natasha through a book shop owner that was located in the Marais district. She was already an experienced model by the time we met, having worked with several prominent French photographers I had come to know. Since she was highly recommended by my colleagues, I was confident our collaboration wouldn’t be in vein. Our first meeting was delightful (she spoke excellent English) as we laid the groundwork for what would become several years of collaboration whenever I arrived in town for a book signing, an exhibit or to make new erotic pictures. She was a muse. On this particular visit, I checked in to the Hotel Regina, one of my favorite places to reside in the 1st Arrondissement. I was shooting for Penthouse. No expense would be sparred with regards to hotel accommodations. The suites were expensive, but it was well worth the investment. Bob Guccione, owner, publisher of Penthouse, patron of the arts loved the look of rich, and expensive. He would pay handsomely for that look it if he liked your work and you knew how to deliver the goods.

The suite I reserved at the Hotel Regina featured a view of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre which was just across the street and the Tuileries garden. It had a small balcony where you could step out and affirm that you were in the heart of Paris, as the motorist sped down the famous Rue de Rivoli into the wee hours of the morning. It was a fitting setting for what would take place in the elegantly appointed 19th century decor environment throughout the day between Natasha and her friend from their hometown in St. Petersburg, Russia. Angelina, arrived at the suite with long brown hair tied back in a ponytail. She was new to the city of lights and if memory serves me correctly, I was the first photographer to photograph her nude since she was new to photographers who worked within the erotic milieu. Angelina was a little timid at first. She felt more confident and at ease with her sensuality when Natasha, an experienced nude model, expertly steered her to the extremes of homoerotic pleasure.
