Happy Birthday Mister Devious

Cujus corpus poenae cupit
Harmony Hanson, the first model (and first shoot) featured as a Devious Girl for the Mister Devious project.

Ten years ago this week Harmony Hanson gave form to the very first Mister Devious shoot.

Ten years later I’m still working, playing, touching up those early photos. Ten years I’ve been beating myself up over mistakes, coulda’s, shoulda’s, woulda’s. This week though, I’m going to pat myself on the back. The mistakes I’ve made (many, many mistakes) aren’t holding a candle to the experience, the friendships and adventures I’ve had. I’ve helped start some interesting careers, ended a few too, I think (hopefully not my own).

I’m not going to get nostalgic on yo ass. I wont wax rhapsodic. I just want to take a moment to thank all that submitted to my camera, made art with me, showed vulnerability, defiance, humor and sex, sex, sex.

Ten years now. Here’s to ten more perversions, kinks, sexuality, weirdness and always and forever, personalities.

A Thorny Sample

I took thousands of images of Thorn the other day. Thousands. Hundreds of photos aren’t unusual for me, but I think this is the first time I broke the thousand photo count in a single shoot.

I’ll be sifting through these photos for years.

Here’s another quick pass as I meander through the mountain.
