Just been watching America’s Next Top Model All Stars where the models were posing with Coco Rocha in fiesty fight scenes, so though it would be appropriate to get on with sharing these new photos by Stefano Brunesci, consisting of a funky power-battle between me and the gorgeous Madame Bink – my art nude partner in crime!
Both of us work with other models too, but I’ve known Bink the longest and worked with her the most – so always feel very comfortable modelling alongside (and often very up close!) with her. Our friendship and experience help us work as a harmoneous model duo, bouncing suggestions off each other and trying out new poses, and with this shoot we really broke out the box!
When Stefano showed us some of the loose ideas and inspirations he had for the shoot, which were, to be fair, quite a lot raunchier than our usual style (considering we normally do very classical, fine art nudes, strictly devoid of anything overtly ‘sexy’) I think we both did a sharp, slightly concerned intake of breath. But then we got going and I ended up riding on her head, posed like some bizarre fetish centaur.
Of course lots of laughing ensued, along with lots of apologies as some of the other poses we tried out didn’t quite work or involved lots of painful stances trying to get them right. Do LOVE a posed fight though. It seems especially fun with someone you really get on with, even though we had to stop every now and again to have a hug to clarify ‘I don’t mean it!’ (after having Bink in a thigh-lock) I seem to appear the dominant one as Bink isn’t so keen on doing mean faces (not that it’s really my forté either!) but I assure you I got lots of evils inbetween takes. Fight me Binky!!! 😀
Stefano was brilliant at helping direct us, reviewing images as we went along, and just letting us get on with the little semi-telepathic communicating we seem to have become good at.
They are certainly a bit different for us, of course the superb lighting Stefano set up takes the poses to the next level, really showing us off so well and adding that dark, classy, fashion edge – I just think they are majorly cool and that we look EPIC! Thank you Stefano for trying out something so cool with us, and making it look so damn good! And thanks to Bink for always being freakin’ awesome fun to work with 🙂
