"I like fist-fucking grown men while dressed like a rubber nazi." - Cybill Troy
In the first several months of 2015 I was still working for a certain unnamed online fetish retail company. Things had been going south between us for some time and by April I would be gone, but a few months prior I was still there, still making videos, and even had been putting out several red carpet videos hosted by Hudsy Hawn. One of my first red carpets with Hudsy put us smack dab in the middle of the Transgender Erotica Awards (known the year before as the Tranny Porn Awards). Hudsy had been known for asking people about their kinks on camera so I produced a segment where she asked every person on the red carpet what their kink is. We had a funny interaction before the event where she asked me if that would get boring. I told her the only people that it could potentially get boring for is me and her as the interviewees would have no clue and the audience would simply see a quick two minute rapid fire of answers. The crux of the video wound up being the above quote from Dominatrix Cybill Troy. Not only was Cybill on point with her response but her look as well rocking a dope pant suit.
I knew I wanted to work with Cybill again after that night but the channels of reaching her were tenuous at best. I forgot about it for a while but continued to follow her on social media as I transitioned away from video in the fetish world to the photo set I do now. A few months ago I was contacted by a guy name Steven who had been following my work and wanted some advice on cameras. Steven is an attorney in his 50's with strong ties to the fetish world and a love for photography. I was happy to share all my thoughts and he was most appreciative. I try not to ask for things in return when sharing knowledge but I had noticed Steven and Cybill were friends so I really casually mentioned that I'd love to photograph her sometime. Steven being the wonderfully nice gentleman that he is immediately went to work putting us in contact. About a week later Cybill and I found ourselves in downtown shooting together.
Shooting with Cybill was beyond delightful. Not only was she so very natural with the camera but just such a sweetheart and of course great style. We had a wonderful night shoot together that concluded with her and her boyfriend taking me out to one of my favorite diners in LA, The Pantry. We didn't have a super long shoot but the results are killer and I'm sure we will be shooting together again soon. Pay particular attention to the final shot as it's one of my favorite I've ever taken. Enjoy!
