Squi and Kaz. He's growing up so fast and she is as beautiful as ever. Shot in Vegas when I was testing the lighting where I was shooting some models.

We stopped seeing each other a few years ago. I tried to remain friends but she has completely disappeared. I can't find her anywhere...and I've tried!
I hope she is OK. :(
But....things evolve and I'm happy as I can be.
Hope you have a Merry and Happy!!

Wow. Your Marcia Hase shots are stunning, and I crazy-respect your integrity in hiring pro-stylists for this very specific look. This classic shibari look is hundred of years old now, it definitely deserves to be done properly. I would just die to see the full shoot, but I know you deal with a lot of nasty, ignorant people on here. I hope someday I'll get to see it!

well...you certainly know about dealing with those asshats, huh!? Sorry you have had to face it also.
Easy way for you to see the whole shoot is just to come to LA and let us do one of/for you! :) 
Thanks so much.

well...it's just that it inhibits me from sharing images I would really love to share. I just don't have the time to monitor all the trolls.
Thanks so much!!!

Dear Michael,
Several years ago you posted an hilarious, but fact filled picture illustrating the myriad types of cameras available, by price range and abilities/features. The "Guy with a Camera" moniker has given me the sniggers ever since! I am looking to budget money this winter to buy myself a better camera in the spring. Maybe I'll be a Minor League GWC!! Anyway, would you PLEASE / (Oni gashi mas!) repost that picture post!
Thanks, Domo Arigato, Danke, Gracias, Takk,
Go raibh maith agat! You are STILL a reason I come here. Thanks for coming back and staying.
