Goodwill likes me. They don’t love me, but they like me. I buy a bunch of stuff there and I donate a bunch of stuff there. It’s a win-win. Most of my most unusual costume finds have been there.
I am obsessed with finding weird costume items for models who will eventually wear them. I don’t necessarily know the models or what they will wear, specifically, but I do know that it will be from these interesting and unusual costume items.
I would like to introduce my friend, Tracee. She is a new model with some experience with performance and modeling. We have talked about working together in the past, but it has never happened. Now, I’m proud to say, I have some great photos of her.

For this project, I decided to create a new world using story as a creative (and motivating) force. In this case, I came up with a short story – really just an origin story leading to the character “Danika.” The name means “Morning Star” in Slavic. Morning Star being the representation of beauty via Venus.
Great Photos and Amazing Talent at the SASCO Mines
So I had a great photo shoot out in the deserts north of Tucson. 5 miles west-southwest of a little town called Red Rock is a long dirt road called Sasco Mine Road. The mine is gone now. It hasn’t been there since the 1940s. It’s an interesting story and a fun read. I love it for all the amazing graffiti and it’s a great location to shoot models and create awesome and incredible image experiments.
