Liz Ashley #147

Here’s another photo from days gone by. This photo was taken back in July, 2007, when I shot with model Liz Ashley from Texas. Sometimes it’s good to go back and give a second look to photos you overlooked before.

I am officially done with Zooomr

Zooomr
I’m not going to rant about Zooomr. Sorry. Instead, I’ll just let you know that I will no longer use Zooomr to share my photos.

I haven’t really used Zooomr since the introduction of Mk III, but now it’s official. Today I moved the photos I had left on Zooomr over to my Flickr account, fixed any blog entries with Zooomr photos, and finally deleted all of my photos from Zooomr.

Meanwhile, here’s a new photo to start off the new year…

FYI, JPG Magazine thinks pubic hair is genitalia

I got this in an email from JPG Magazine today (emphasis mine):

Michael —

Thanks for participating in JPG, but your photo, “Shadow Play,” had to be removed from the site. Some of the most frequent reasons for removal are:

* Inappropriate content. We’re okay with artful nudes, but no genitalia.

Please be sure to read the photo guidelines before uploading again.

http://jpgmag.com/about/photos.html

Note that once a photo has been deleted from the site, it’s gone. It cannot be reviewed again.

Please don’t take this personally – it’s not! We just want to keep the JPG site focused on the kind of photography that we print in JPG Magazine. Try again with a different photo!

Thanks,

— Paul, JPG Editor

ps – Do not upload the same photo again.

WTF? Genitalia?

Here is the photo they removed:

OK, yeah, the pubic hair is clearly visible. Is that genitalia? Well, I don’t think so, obviously. I’ve read JPG’s posting guidelines. I thought about it before I posted this photo. But I remember thinking to myself, “Um, self, this surely isn’t what they mean by genitalia. Is it?”

Well, yes, apparently it is.

I don’t want to go on too much of a rant here. I like JPG Magazine, and they have the right to publish whatever they think is fit. But maybe genitalia isn’t the right word to use in their posting guidelines. C’mon, there must be a million better, less subjective words they could use.

So anyway, dear readers, what do you think? Is pubic hair genitalia or not?


Model photos added to the gallery

The gallery is still a work in progress, but I have added several collections of my favorite model photos. Let me know what you think.

Hair Tossing

At some point in the shoot, Liz and I were playing with tossing her hair. This was my favorite…

Five More of Liz Ashley

Here are five more photos of the beautiful Liz Ashley. These will probably be the last photos from this shoot that I post en masse like this, but there are plenty more keepers that I will post from time to time. In fact, I can’t think of a shoot where I’ve ever had such a high percentage of keepers. Big props to Liz for being such a great subject!

At the risk of looking like a Liz Ashley fan site, here is yet another set of Liz:

Photo Shoot: Liz Ashley

I shot with the lovely Liz Ashley today at Kevin Break Studio in Los Angeles. One of the cool benefits of shooting there are the several studio cats, who love models and are very agreeable to being photographed (even without a release).
