Ana Corbi – Gothic Romantic

Ana Corbi is a Spanish actress and model I have been fortunate enough to shoot with a couple times this year.  Our last shoot was during the San Diego Comic Con when I decided to drive up to LA rather than mess around with the crowds 5 days in a row.

Ana had just returned from Europe and I texted her at noon to see if she was available for a 4pm shoot.  It turned out to be one of the most fruitful shoots I’ve done this year, even if it was totally spontaneous- we got three looks in and make a short film, “Años Azul”, which will be released towards the end of September.  It all comes down to photographer and model being on the same page, where the vision is pretty unified so there isn’t a lot of time being wasted and we can just jump into being creative.

In the meantime, one 18+ set, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, is currently available on my Patreon at the $5 and above level!

Design + the dancer

I wanted to post a few recent images I did with dancer/ stuntwoman Alana Schoen in LA.  Probably my favorite styling to work with is a black turtleneck and leggings; I’ve done it many times with many different models and it always comes out with a super clean design that appeals to me.  Alana (228 of 513)-Edit

Primordial Creative is now on Patreon!

The last 2 months I’ve been doing a lot of my posting on Patreon.  For those unfamiliar, Patreon is where fans of creators subscribe at various reward tiers for exclusive content.  I have found it’s a good compromise for my 18+ work since Tumblr has essentially ceased functioning as an arts site and Facebook/ Instagram only allows censored material.

To give you an idea of what is actually over there, in the past month I’ve released photo sets with Cacia Zoo, Alina Lee/ Thumbelina, and a bunch of people from my previous LA trips.

Currently I’m doing 2 PG sets and 2 18+ sets a month, and any previous 18+ videos shot with models are only available through Patreon.  My tutorials on Skillshare and Udemy will also be available for subscribers.

Though Primordial Creative works in a variety of genres, I’ve built this Patreon around the photos and videos I’ve done with some of the best models around for the last 7 years including brand new work.  The reward tiers include:

-photosets and video art pieces, PG + uncensored, with accompanying explainer videos where I tell you how it was all made

-my tutorials that I create for teaching pay sites Skillshare and Udemy, covering the Adobe Creative Suite, video editing, animation, sound design and more.

-mailed one-of-a-kind instax and limited edition printed zines

-name in the credits of video art pieces

-PDF copies of my e-books “Capturing The Face” and “Secretly”

There’s a lot of exclusive stuff there so anyone interested in helping support the Primordial Creative cause I highly encourage you to check you my Patreon page!

Fujifilm SQ10 Square Instax Road Test #2 with 7 models!

Hey out there! This is a followup to my unboxing/ road test with the new Fujifilm SQ10 Square Instax camera. I took it to LA to shoot with 7 models and address a few of your questions from the previous video. Also, we see a side-by-side comparison of an image shot with the Fuji Neo Classic 90 and the SQ10. More practice, more experience, more love for this camera despite its many quirks.

Fujifilm Square SQ10 Unboxing/ Review/ Samples!

Fuji’s latest instant film camera, the Square SQ10, gets unboxed and road tested in a shoot with model Alina Lee aka Thumbelina in a pool and a jail. We show how the hybrid digital/ analogue camera works, see sample images, showcase the unique features of the camera, go over the pros and cons of the camera, and do our best to answer all your burning questions about the Fujifilm SQ10!

Radical Feelism – new video art with Corie Shannon

Corie Shannon is a model who I ended up working with based on a fun, talkative video posted on YouTube where she outlined some of her core beliefs.  We had the opportunity to shoot around Phoenix a bit and I finally got to use my Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera, though it was on a completely unfamiliar steadicam so my work was less than steady.  The title of this, “Radical Feelism,” is based on a tattoo you can barely make out on the inside of Corie’s arm, and she goes into much greater detail in the actual video.
