In 2006 I started shooting with real models. I shot nudes and glamour even though I didn't' really know much about the different types of modeling. I found Model Mayhem and One Model Place as networking sites for photographers and models to connect. Well, I think I had 4 pictures in my profile and I found this amazing redhead Shannon Murray and asked if we could shoot. She was the first model I booked through MM. So we met in Weehawken NJ and did my first shoot with a model. This was it.
Shannon and I worked together I think 3 more times always fun and always dynamic. She was this tough tomboy who climbed trees and had the energy to burn. I loved her and her amazing natural red hair too. We have kept in touch ever since. She followed her dreams and headed off to California and get into acting. She was a double for Natalie Moore in a movie, had a bit part, maybe a line or two in Oz Ther Great and powerful. She has also done cute comedy videos and also been in music videos. Then this happened, her movie "Rag Doll" Wow one of the most powerful movies I have seen in a while. She plays the starring roll in it and all I can say is the ending is more surprising then you could guess. Go watch it now on Amazon Prime "Rag Doll" you can thank me later.
Here are the images from my first model, Shannon Murray. This is where it all started for me. I hope you enjoy.
