For my first #JNT Monthly Photo Shoot of 2015, I wanted to do something a little different....
Ok, so if you know me at all, that actually wasn't very different from my usual Shoot Shenanigans ("shoonanigans"). I did however have an incredible first photo shoot with photographer Ray Gutierrez of Strange Beautiful Art (check him out) at my new Hollywood HQ.
Some of you may remember a recent facebook profile photo of mine that really got some attention...
This photo BLEW THE FUCK UP! And quite deservedly so. It is a gorgeous shot and only one of my favs from my photo shoot with "David K Studio," a versatile and simplistic photographer in the LA area.
Oh, the perks to living in Los Angeles! I often have friends that come and visit (check out Tea Time with Jin!) and I am "forced" to venture out and See the Sites. One destination that almost always makes the list...? Shopping in Hollywood. Duh.
. . . I left with more than I had planned!
"Birds Of Paradise" Bodypaint Photoshoot at Dystopian Studios II by Trina Merry with Ulorin Vex and Photographer Paul Albert
So typically here is where I would put a little intro paragraph about the shoot, followed by the behind the scenes video, and then a bunch of photos taken the day of with lots of "funny" captions and yada yada before FINALLY at the very end of my post revealing the amazing finished photo. This shit's fuckin' fantastic though so I'm just going to post it and you can feel free to click around for all the fun behind the scenes stuff. . . . Or not =) You're welcome!

Jin N Tonic Doesn't Go 'Back to School' - My September JNT Shoot with Radiance Photographics and Mustache Rides & Chopper Shop! (Eugene, OR)
While I was figuring out my theme for my September JNT Monthly Photoshoot, the idea of 'Back to School' was brought up a few times...
Introducing my September 2013 JNT Print of the Month!
I was very excited to team up with Radiance Photographics, Hair by Rachel Teran, and Mustache Rides & Chopper Shop to make this truly badass shoot happen!!
More Badassery with Robert Bejil Photography and Special Guest, Male Model/Actor/Badass *Joshua Keith Mathews* (Bakersfield, CA)
So I think by now, we're all aware of how serious I take my modeling career. I mean, I'm talking, super cereal kind of serious. This is probably the reason why photographer Robert Bejil invited me in front of his lens for a second shoot. Like true pro's, we like to do it big, and our one shoot was more like three. Plus it was the perfect opportunity to wrangle in male model/actor/badass Joshua Keith Mathews for some steamy photos. But first, a little behind the scenes video by yours truly...

August! The hottest month of summer. The month of road trips, camp outs, and BBQs before September and all the responsibilities that fall brings. What could be more fitting then, for my Monthly JNT Photoshoot, than a LATEX photoshoot??
I was so excited to team up with Drew Driskell Photography and Twila Jean Vintage to make this shoot happen!! Click below to see the amazing photos, and to check out my August 2013 JNT Print of the Month!!!
I first got the idea for my July JNT "Lady Liberty" shoot while participating as a hair model for the Wella Trend Vision contest (post on that soon to come!). I saw how easily I could get my hair to liberty spike and immediately envisioned Punk Rock Lad Liberty. I really wanted to push the concept though, and spent many hours discussing with photographer/bodypainter Todd Powers and his wife artist/wardrobist Jen Raven regarding just what message I wanted to convey, and how to properly convey it. Thus, Lady Liberty, Bound & Gagged was also created.
This is the first time I've really pushed my art into the realm of 'political statement,' and I'm so excited with how everything has turned out.. But I am even more excited to see the world's reaction to this shoot!
How fitting that I was in Bakersfield, a dry, dusty desert area known for it's sweltering summers, for my June photo shoot. The theme of this one?
