I met Adreena socially & decided she had an interesting quality I wanted to shoot; it’s always good to see models in real life, seeing how they move & what’s going on behind the eyes isn’t always something I can pick up from a portfolio. Sadly interviewing everyone before I shoot them is a tad unpractical, so I’ll have to continue forcing myself to go out occasionally, just for research 🙂

These shots are quite fetish-orientated, I think it’s important to try different genres of photography & push yourself creatively; it’s easy to default to what you know already, but you don’t grow as a photographer that way.
