Photos of some of Emma Alexa’s new latex designs (and they are amazing!). Model is the stunning (and lovely) Emma McKay.

I was asked to create a set of images to publicise a 40s themed party. Shooting at a great central London location with three beautiful models and a fantastic make-up artist certainly helped!

Not everything I do is fashion-related; I love taking images of the world around us too. Many of these images end up inspiring me to create a composite that does involve models :)

Emma and I travel to quite a few events in North America, and one of our annual pilgramages is to the Montreal Fetish Weekend in September.

In 2011, Emma and her Feterati Girls had a big slot in the fashion show with their latex designs, and also performed a very cool UV dance routine at the main event on Saturday night.

For the fashion show, there were a total of 17 models to get ready and rehearse! I hired Blah Blah studios in Montreal for the afternoon before the fashion show, so that we had a place away from the hubbub to get the girls made up, and so that I could shoot them as well – partly as a thank you to the girls, partly for the Feterati Girls publicity, and partly because… well, how often do you get to shoot 17 models in one go?! Especially when they include models like Jean Bardot :)

It was an incredible day – I don’t think I’ve ever been that tired before – 17 shoots in something like 5 hours really takes it out of you, but I think it was worth it; I hope you agree!

This series was quite an epic. Emily Marilyn was one of the very first fetish models I became aware of when I first found the scene, so when she contacted me a few weeks ago asking if I would like to shoot her while she was in the UK, I naturally said yes. Emily was also keen to shoot with Emma, so we spent some fun evenings thinking through what kind of a scene would do the occasion justice.

We both settled on the idea that a sci-fi theme would be really different, and allow us to create some very dramatic images. I had also wanted for ages to show someone ‘emerging from a TV screen into the real world, so the idea for the series was born. Emma also decided to make special latex outfits for the shoot, and spent countless hours planning and making what turned out to be really amazing costumes.

At the same time I was running around trying to find swords or laser rifles, a studio, and a makeup artist. In the end the katana were loaned by the lovely Kezia Argue, and our MUA was the very talented Soo-Jung Park, with whom I’ve worked before.

The shoot went very well indeed – Emily was completely lovely to work with, and indeed to hang out with afterwards! Aside from a fire alarm that had everyone standing outside in the cold in their latex, and the studio being a bit cramped and disorganised (I won’t be going back there!), it was an excellent day!
