A Trip Down Memory Lane – Female Models Glamour 2

I shot a lot of beautiful babes during the 90`s, many of them with bikes, beautiful restored vintage autos, four wheel drive trucks, jet skiis and even four wheelers. I also shot at some beautiful scenic waterfalls, and in some cases, like with Jennie, the two locations were very close together for both types of shoots…..

Luckily, we never saw anymore creepy crawly critters at the waterfall after the poster shoot…we figured it was prob the floodwaters that brought them in there.  She really enjoyed the waterfall and its alot easier to shoot there when you aren`t constantly looking over your shoulder or around to make sure it`s safe first. Jennie looked stunning in both of her swimsuits at the falls…..she was always alot of fun to work with…

Cathy was another glamour babe that I shot on some jeeps and four wheelers….

speaking of jeeps, here is another babe on a jeep, this one at Ebo, where I shot many four wheel drive pickups and jeeps and cycles…this one has Emily featured on it…this one was a blue jeep and Brian, the owner, was actually a cousin of Gus, the owner of the red jeep above…both of them good friends of mine….

…actually they both brought their jeeps to me whenever I needed one in the shot with a new babe….such was the case when I had three babes out at Ebo one day and was in need of a great vehicle….

…this time Michelle was featured on the red jeep first….and she worked that jeep well, let me tell you, even for a first time glamour shoot….

and one of my male models, Justin, was out there with me that day, and Michelle took a few shots with him, too…

I also shot a few restored vintage cars, too….this one a restored Mustang convertible…with Julie, one of my hott models who went on to become a Bud girl featured on billboards across the midwest states for a few years….

and one day I was even shooting a beautiful red Camaro out there, not out on the sands like the trucks and jeeps, but down by the creek where you could get to it by roadway….and Raye, modeling glamour at first, showed it off well too….

Probably two of my more unusual vehicle shoots involved a beautiful racecar owned by a local boy who enjoyed racing for a few years early on, and had me come down and photograph it with a gorgeous babe named Natalie, who I found on a modeling website at the time, to promote his racing fuels store…

…and the other one was a pretty red truck, souped up a bit, and the owner wanted a shot of it with the rear wheels smoking the street and so we went down to the state park to find a secluded area where we could shoot it…one of my local models Jenny, knew the owner well and came along for the shot…I positioned her leaning over on the drivers side window as if she was chatting with him while he tried to impress her with the power of the truck….and then the park ranger showed up….uh oh….

Ticket Distraction


….but in all actuality…..I had gained the permission of the park ranger to do this, before we actually shot it, and he came up to watch and I was able to get him involved in it too….so it just looked like he was writing a ticket. 



Long Neck Bottle Shoot

Back about the mid nineties, I was asked to set up and shoot a promotional ad shot for an ad company that I was shooting some stock work for, one of their clients was a large beer producer that was introducing long neck bottles of beer, their only requirement for the shoot besides the product of course, was sex appeal and I was free to shoot as many male and female models as I could…and they suggested a waterfall or scenic water location…bottom line is they wanted water in the shot along with sexy bodies and faces….I set up the first shoot at a beautiful waterfall that I had been doing alot of shoots at, on a beautifully warm October day……there were actually three waterfalls there and I chose to use the tallest one because I would be able to place several models up and down it for the shot. I took a couple of friends along for security, one of my buddies went with us to video shoot the whole print shoot, and I had a few make up artists along too. 

We arrived at the location of the waterfall early afternoon and started doing site clean up…there had been some local flooding the week before and no one had been down there since. It had prob been two weeks since I had been there, so while Kurt, who was handling security for me, and some of the male models, were setting up a changing area for the gals and cleaning up the base of the falls…..we planned to shoot a couple of changes of swimwear styles and colors, and needed a secure changing area, roping off an area with towels for privacy….. I was up on the falls bluff removing the driftwood from the bluff walls…all of a sudden someone yelled ” snake ” and the next thing you know, all the babes were up on the bluff wall with me and I looked down to see three water moccasins coming up out of a pool of water at the base of the falls and moving toward Kurt and the guys….I told Kurt to kill them, so he and the guys did just that…they flattened one with a large heavy rock and snuffed the other two with an axe that Kurt had brought with him….he and the other security guys were armed, but if someone had missed, I really didn`t want to take any chances on ricochets. Luckily, those were the only ones we saw the rest of the day and the rest of the shoot went quite well. I think my buddy shooting video was the only one that got any film on it and didn`t have any problems with them himself. Here are some images of the shoot, starting with the babes involved in the shoot….

I haven`t been able to find any of the actual poster shots with the bottles, to copy and post on here, but I do have a few of the side shots with some of the babes with the guys afterwards. I will post more images once I locate them…I only have about three more boxes of files and photos to go through for this location shoot. We actually wound up shooting one other creek location and then the third request for a smaller shoot, required a friend of mine coming in and building a shallow pool in my studio because by that time we were into December and it was way too cool outside or to even think of asking the female models to get back into the creek. 

Here is Ronda with some of the guys….

and here is Tony with the Trophy Girl, Kimberly….I still can`t believe he wasn`t smiling for this one….she sure was….

A Trip Down Memory Lane – Female Models Glamour

I started out shooting freelance glamour work in the late 80`s and early 90`s,  working with local motorcycle and jet ski dealers to produce posters with sex appeal for promotion and sales of products, often photographing bikini clad female models on their products, using studio lighting and backdrops, but occasionally shooting on location as well. The dealers would then select the best image and have thousands of posters printed up for their dealer booths at the boat shows, farm shows, and cycle shows at the convention centers, and employ the female models part time, to attract a primarily male buyer audience by autographing their posters in person at the shows and show off the product. These shows provided added opportunities for some of my models to make some additional income on the side. This was known as Cheesecake work in those days, aimed at a primarily male audience…. the good ole days when things were better and life was easier in general. Here are some of my better glamour images with models from the good ole days….

The two images above are of a sexy gal named Shelly B, who I met while photographing a friend of hers…Shelly was one of the first gals that shot both styles of work with me, although her friend only wanted to shoot glamour work. Since I was just beginning to shoot with models, both styles were fine with me so I could gain some experience and since Shelly had experience in both styles, she was able to teach me quite a bit about posing models. I also worked with another model named Shelly, a little later on, who was also very hot  and looked great on motorcycles…I met her when she and her husband opened up a video rental store in town. She became one of the hottest models I was working with while shooting motorcycles….

I was also shooting some poster work for a private racecar owner about that time and met a hot new model online that was just breaking into glamour work…her name was Natalie and she was from the bootheel area…she and her boyfriend Jason came up one weekend to shoot the racecar poster work for me…she was a small package of dynamite in swimwear and heels let me tell ya….

…and I soon found out, on some return visits, that she looked great on motorcycles too…

Some more of my images with babes on motorcycles….luckily back then, I had a list of guys I could contact for a bike when I had a model coming in to shoot….

The one above and below are Katrina, on a friend`s Harley in my studio…she came to me on the referral of her brother Damian, who was doing some glamour modeling work for me at the time…Katrina`s only modeling experience was with Glamour Shots, which was pretty popular back then. I thought she was a natural, myself. 🙂  I know the bike owner sure did like the images.

 Here is another sexy model I found…Ronda was a former local girl that had moved to St Louis County from here and she worked out to be a very good model for several projects I was working on at the time. Here are a few of her shots on some motorcycles in my studio…….

I had actually picked up some poster work for a local beer company and was asked to shoot and submit some images with male and female models in the images holding the products. I hand selected all  of the models, most of them had worked with me on several other shoots before, some were in the calendar that a friend and I had produced as well, and I`ll talk about this waterfall shoot a little more extensively, in another post, because it was quite an adventure all on its own. In the meantime, though, here are a couple of shots of Ronda with the guys and alone in the small canyon walls near the waterfalls……

The other big project that she assisted with was the calendar production…Dave and I photographed her on an antique pumper in Washington with a couple of firefighters and a dalmation dog……the image was used in a fire service magazine to advertise the calendar sales…..

Ronda was a great model to work with, another natural with little to no prior experience. A few more of her images in the calendar shoot can be seen at my site www.RagingSensations.com
