We managed to finally reach an agreement with an incredible girl last night - a real nurse!!! I told her to bring her uniform... Obviously she has ambitions to add nude modeling to her choice of career. A fine goal, I think.
She is another first timer, and you might ask what is so special about that. It really is unique, because it means she is a virgin to the world of erotica, and any rare asset is a valuable one. We also confirmed that tiny girl from our first day casting, not my favourite but at the moment we are still scarce with models.
The location was a multi studio "Miami" style house in the outskirts of Tokyo. Not very Japanese, but it was a super efficient shooting space. It was our first really fun day in Tokyo, but it was not without drama; for reasons I don’t really understand, both models cried at the end of the day. The agents (they were there all day watching) got upset with me and my "aggressive" shooting style... But they never complained until it was all over.
I guess 10 hours of constant shooting takes its toll on the models, and I do tend to get a bit excited and into the moment when I work. I do not give them a minute of rest, but I get such a high when things are really rolling, an adrenaline rush, and this fuels the mood on set. I empower them to push ahead with me even when it is hard. That’s the worker in me and the energy I have I suppose.
And I see that it produces results. Sometimes I joke about it and say that if the model does not cry or cramp during the session the photographer has not done a good job! ;-)
Cold beer and a basket of sushi made a perfect end of the day, but there was more work ahead...
