The cold in LA will sneak up on you. One day you're just like "Oh awesome it's really warm!" and then BOOM! it's freezing (and I say freezing really loosely being a man that comes from the ice & snow). It becomes ultra strange because it will go back and forth between cold and hot somewhere in the Fall but then all of a sudden when you've been telling yourself for a week that you don't quite yet need to turn on the heater because when you wake up your apartment will be sweltering that you suddenly realize it's been cold for a month with no warm days. Well much like the cracking of a Dominatrix's flogger, the cold is here for your ass MOTHERFUCKER.
And speaking of Dominatrixes, the subject of today's set just happens to be one by the name of Raven Rae. I first met Raven at The Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) in Las Vegas during my days doing video production for The Stockroom. AEE (the convention lead up the to infamous porn awards known as AVN) is well known for its porn star booths, but it also features a section devoted to all things kink and fetish. The Stockroom had been given a double suite where we had quite the fancy setup of an electro-stimulation station and a medical play station. Of course we brought our own helpers in the form of several porn stars, however we also had the aide of a beautiful volunteer who just happened to show up by the name of Raven Rae. Raven was super rad and extremely helpful (especially considering we were not paying her). She largely worked the medical play station alongside my favorite porn star of all-time Justine Joli (who was also nothing but a mega-delight).
In the spring time Raven and I set up a shoot and headed around her hood of Culver City. All the shooting I had done in Culver City previously was centered around street art so I was over the moon when Raven showed me all these rad industrial spots to shoot. We also had happened to be joined by Raven's domme friend Sablique who I did not take any photos of at the time but she and I are in serious talks to do so in the future. For now though please enjoy this rad set.
