I have been a huge fan of Gary Breckheimer‘s photos since the time I started modelling. I have always wanted to work with him, but he seemed to shoot exclusively in New York City or Los Angeles, and I had no idea how I was going to get out there.
One day I got an email from him saying that he was headed to Jacksonville to visit some friends and was wondering if I’d be interested in shooting with him around Jacksonville while he was there. How could I say no? Of course I immediately messaged him back, and tried not to fangirl too much, saying that I absolutely wanted to shoot with him. Over the next 24 hours I went back and forth between elated and terrified, because he does nudes in the city and I know that Florida isn’t too nice about that kind of thing.
After 24 hours I sadly messaged him back saying that I had to back out of the shoot because I was worried about getting caught and didn’t want my fear and nervousness to show up in the images. It was horrible, but I knew it was for the best.
To my complete surprise he messaged me back saying that he would be willing to drive to Gainesville to shoot me if I had any locations! I messaged back about this abandoned house, and he agreed to shoot there, even though it was a very different setting than his usual nudes in big cities.
It was one of the most fun shoots of my career.
Gary was absolutely wonderful the entire time, and had awesome ideas of how to incorporate bondage props, lingerie, and dolls with nature. I absolutely adore the images and I hope to get to shoot with him again someday soon! 🙂
There are, of course, more photos from this shoot in my portfolio on this site, and on my various sites!
