There's not many things I would consider as precious as a woman caught in the act of undressing. Or being generally awkward in front of the camera, trying to handle her shyness.
...by shooting perfect strangers at the beach.
Approaching beautiful girls and asking them to be my models is something I suddenly started doing in 2017, as if a benevolent demon buried deep inside me had suddenly decided to wake up and give me the strength to do such a thing. A thing I would have considered totally out of my reach just weeks before. As of today I am still shocked by the openness and availability of the vast majority of the girls I approach with such intentions. I must be doing something right.
they are initially terrified...
…and actually skeptical about their ability to stand tall in front of the camera. There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing the expression of amazement that inevitably appears on their faces when confronted with the result of the shoot. It’s a win-win-win: they get beautiful pictures, they feel empowered, I feel accomplished.
