Terror https://mriveraphoto.com/terror/ https://mriveraphoto.com/terror/#comments Thu, 02 Feb 2012 15:41:36 +0000 http://mriveraphoto.com/?p=700 These are from last year, but lately I have been amazed at what I haven’t shared on my website… so, I thought I’d share some photos from October when we had our set at Photo Bang Bang looking like a room out of Saw or Hostel. I had this idea of having Curtis dress as a “Man in Black” character terrorizing women. It falls in line with every horror movie from the late 70’s and early 80’s so I figured it might be a fun thing to play around with.

Here is a series of the photos that I shot with Kyeri as the victim.

The photos in this series are available for purchase, in limited edition, signed and framed or shipped without frame. Contact marcos@mriveraphoto.com for more information.

Krysta Kaos – Vintage Phone Sex Operator https://mriveraphoto.com/krysta-kaos-vintage-phone-sex-operator/ https://mriveraphoto.com/krysta-kaos-vintage-phone-sex-operator/#comments Fri, 27 Jan 2012 16:21:28 +0000 http://mriveraphoto.com/?p=693 The AEE/AVN was in town last week in Las Vegas, which meant that one of my favorite models was coming to town. Krysta Kaos is a beautiful, tattooed model/porn starlet… she lives in the Bay Area in California, but we had an opportunity to shoot together almost two years ago when she lived just outside of LA. Anyway, she is one of those girls I just want to steal, throw in my car, and drive around looking for places to get out and shoot. I love Krysta because nothing is off limits with her, so my photos are only bound by the limits of my own ideas/creativity.

Being a porn starlet/nude model, Krysta has quite the collection of pictures of her entire anatomy. So, we decided to keep her clothes on for the majority of our shoot (aside from the dirty Polaroids taken with my 195 land camera). We have a retro set built out at Photo Bang Bang, complete with an old red rotary phone, a bunch of taxidermy and other stuff straight out of your grandparents basement. Krysta had a really nice lingerie getup, so she did her best quasi-pinup look (as I am not a pinup fan) and turned out these photos.

I love these photos … I love Krysta … and I love you and your Mother.

Here are some links to see more of Krysta:

Rates https://mriveraphoto.com/rates/ https://mriveraphoto.com/rates/#comments Sun, 13 Nov 2011 18:27:11 +0000 http://mriveraphoto.com/?p=682 I have been fielding a lot of questions about my rates lately, so I thought I would post them here… this way they are clearly laid out for prospective clients. This is a guideline to follow. Please keep in mind that while there is always room for negotiation, I have a daily cost of doing business that needs to be covered. SO, I will not be doing trades with the hopes that you will be in MAXIM and take me along with you when you become the next Megan Fox. However, if you are a model or aspiring model and need to get a couple of new shots for your book, contact me and we can work something out that fits within your budget… within reason. Also… “within reason” is not $20 and a cupcake

STUDIO

  • Studio session (includes portraits on seamless paper, or studio backdrops): $150 per hour with a 2-hour minimum
  • Studio half-day rate (4 hours): $500
  • Studio full-day rate (8 hours): $1,000

LOCATION

  • Sessions: $175 per hour with a 3-hour minimum
  • Half-day rate (4 hours): $600
  • Full-day rate (8 hours): $1,200

Location fees are not included in my rate. I can handle payment for location fees, but they are an additional cost and will be passed on to the client as a separate line item.

With every shoot, you receive a private online gallery with low-res, untouched proofs. You may download the proofs to keep as a reference. You will receive 3-4 fully retouched photos per “look” (‘look’) meaning change of clothes/hair/makeup/concept. These photos will be available online for download. You may print them locally or use my online fulfillment to have them printed. I will also provide you with a release to print your selected photos.

MAKEUP/HAIR
I have had the pleasure of working with many talented makeup artists and hair stylists in the Las Vegas area. Fees for makeup artists and hair stylists vary and will be determined per shoot. Once again, makeup/hair are NOT included in my rate, they are a separate fee and will be a separate line item in your invoice.

Getting Waisted https://mriveraphoto.com/getting-waisted/ https://mriveraphoto.com/getting-waisted/#comments Sun, 09 Oct 2011 17:22:33 +0000 http://mriveraphoto.com/?p=668 I recently had the opportunity to shoot with my good friend Lisa Lorenz of Waisted Couture Corsetry. She does amazing corset work. You can buy her corsets at Waisted Couture. Lisa also designs dancewear. Pink Doll Boutique is the name of her dancewear line. Go buy some… then come by the studio and have me shoot you in it. :)

Anyway, I went back to an older style of shooting for me with my most recent shoot with Lisa. When I first started photographing models, I was doing a lot of back-lit photos using a softbox for fill at about 45 degrees to the right of the camera. I like the idea of the back-lighting becoming the key light, where controlling the image becomes an exercise in organizing chaos (dealing with all of the lens flares). There’s a sensuality to this style of lighting as well that I enjoy which lends itself well to photographing women… kinda like watching someone take a bath in light.

For a little behind-the-scenes info, I generally set my back lighting at somewhere between f/16 and f/22 using two lights shooting across from behind the screen. The screen is a panel had I sewn together made of ripstop nylon. The softbox I am using is a 47″ octagonal softbox that I am basically using as fill. My camera is generally set at either f/11 or f/16 depending on how crazy I want the effect to be. In some cases, I will create the fill with reflector panels, but that limits my ability to move around so having a light set up for fill gives me a bit more flexibility.

Here are some selections from that shoot:

Life on Mars https://mriveraphoto.com/life-on-mars/ https://mriveraphoto.com/life-on-mars/#comments Sat, 01 Oct 2011 16:29:26 +0000 http://mriveraphoto.com/?p=650 My life in Las Vegas has been such a strange and completely eye-opening experience. The roller-coaster metaphor applies to everything I’ve endured since I settled out here in town. Life as a photographer in this economy, in this town has been feast or famine. Luckily, Vegas is a fantastic place to struggle. One of the benefits of living here is the low cost of living, so even through the difficult times here I have been able to keep my head above water. Besides, as long as I am shooting my camera, at the end of the day I still can’t believe I get paid to do something I enjoy so much… so poor or not, times be good.

Life on Mars..that kind of sums up my experience here in Las Vegas. Lunar landscapes, the oftentimes strange and outrageous people. Vegas is unique. Unique is a great word to describe my friend Chris Bauder’s art. Lush, sexy, organic, candy-like are others…

“Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids” is Chris’ current exhibition at the CSN Fine Arts Gallery. I had the opportunity to photograph Chris’ show and thought I would share the photos here.

Wanderlei Silva https://mriveraphoto.com/wanderlei-silva/ https://mriveraphoto.com/wanderlei-silva/#comments Wed, 07 Sep 2011 16:39:57 +0000 http://mriveraphoto.com/?p=623 Had an opportunity earlier this summer to shoot Wanderlei Silva for JAKT Apparel. JAKT Apparel is an apparel company in Ontario, Canada. They make t-shirts for the MMA audience, and they have several MMA fighters that they make signature edition shirts for. One of the them is Wanderlei. Wanderlei is a legend in the sport, most notably for his record in the PRIDE fighting championships. He is years removed from his PRIDE days, and when I met him for our shoot he was training for a fight with Chris Leben. Even with his crazy training schedule, he was a complete gentleman and professional and gave me whatever time I needed to get the shots.

Since I came out to Las Vegas, I have been looking for opportunities to work with fighters. I grew up a huge boxing fan, and with the corruption in the sport… plus a lack of a heavyweight champion that anyone cares about, MMA (particularly UFC) have stepped in to fill the void left by boxing being a shell of it’s former self. So, it was nice to get an opportunity to shoot a fighter, especially one I have watched so often on TV.

Enough talk… here are a few photos:

Photo Update: Gerra https://mriveraphoto.com/photo-update-gerra/ https://mriveraphoto.com/photo-update-gerra/#comments Thu, 04 Aug 2011 08:20:17 +0000 http://mriveraphoto.com/?p=615 I have been a bit lax this year in updating, but I am going to start adding a barrage of images to the site… so for the tens of you who wait with bated breath for updates… HERE YOU GO!

This is Gerra. She is a model here in Las Vegas. We met when I shot her for a tattoo magazine cover (I’ll reveal the details from that shoot when I see the actual cover). Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to work with her a few times and we always seem to yield great results.

Special thanks to Vex Clothing and BlackMirror Designs for providing the wardrobe for these shoots. You can see some of the BlackMirror photos in the latest issue of Dark Beauty Magazine.

Without further doo-doo ado… here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.
