I thought I'd share this video to motivate anyone who hasn't been following the World Cup. This was filmed awhile back by Jim Dziura & Mike Brillantes during a shoot by Ben Watts for Treats! Magazine. The models featured in the video are Audra Marie, Ayla Parker, Heidi Edwards, Lindsey Byard, and Marie-Charlotte Mahul.
I used to post something to My Model Wish List once a week, but I've been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to keep up with it. Anyway, the person being added to the list this week is the beautiful Italian model Bianca Balti. She's been in numerous publications such like Vogue and Esquire and was featured in Playboy France back in 2009 and is currently in the June/July Issue of Playboy US.
Some old shots I did with Jana a.k.a Eufrat:
My beautiful friend and amazing model Gabriella just launched her new website www.fallinlust.com. If you like great photography and appreciate beauty then you should definitely check out her site. Gaby and I have shot a few times and have become great friends over the years and I'm really happy to see her website come to life because I know how much work she's put into it. Check it out!
Julia Skalozub is a Czech photographer that has shot for numerous publications worldwide, most notably Playboy, Volo and FotoVideo. I first saw her work on the photography portfolio website 500.px and was really into it. I would love to be able shoot at her level and work with the magazines she produces content for on a regular basis.
I was just browsing through some old photos, this is a shot of czech model Jana Potyšová, better known by her porn name Eufrat. She was the second model I ever shot and have since shot with her numerous times. She's a great model, an extremely cool girl and an awesome friend.
The latest addition to My Model Wish List is French model Constance Jablonski. Since starting her modeling career in 2006 she's done campaigns for Victoria's Secret, Estée Lauder, Ralph Lauren, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, H&M, Gap, Calvin Klein, Barney's, Nine West, and many more major fashion brands. She's also been featured in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, V, and Revue de Modes.
It's been awhile since I've posted anything on the blog, I've been out of town working for the past few weeks and will post something about that soon. In the meantime I wanted to add the beautiful and talented Indian born model, actress, chef, author and television host Padma Lakshmi to My Model Wish List. At 43 years of age, she's smoking hot and is keeping busy writing cookbooks while at the same time hosting Top Chef and modeling for ad campaigns. Being from India she has the exotic look and being a polyglot (she speaks English, Italian, Spanish, Tamil, and Hindi) adds to her sex appeal, on top of that she doesn't try to cover up her scar which gives her the bad ass element as well. She's been featured in publications like Playboy and shot with top photographers like Helmut Newton. Padma has always been on my model wish list and will hopefully be someone I can photograph at some point in time.
I was just browsing through one of my drives and saw these random pictures of Jana a.k.a. Eufrat that I never published anywhere. This shoot took place in March of 2011.
Well I've managed to get myself stranded in Argentina for an additional week, but that's not a bad thing. With this extra time here I was able to spend time collaborating with my good friends Tomy and Pali from Tuco Studios. We met the last time I was in Buenos Aires back in 2011 and have been talking about trying to work on some stuff together ever since. We have some cool new projects in the works and the other night I was hanging out with Tomy and he started bring new life to some photos I took awhile back and have done much with. Here's a sample of what's to come, the model is the beautiful Eufrat from Prague and the shoot took place in Los Angeles back in 2011.
Gabriella is another model that I've worked with on a few occasions, but she's such a fantastic model and friend that she has a permanent place on My Model Wish List. I first met her back in April of 2011 and at that point she was the third model I had ever shot. She's based in Budapest, Hungary, but works all over the world and recently appeared on the Playboy website. I always look forward to seeing her new photo sets and can't wait to work with her again. If you're on Facebook you can follow her at www.facebook.com/GabriellaTheModel. I'm hoping to work with her and Katey, another Budapest based model on My Model Wish List, sometime early next year.
Here is some of my past work with Gabriella www.steveslefteye.com/#/gabriella
Sasha Grey . . . she's different from the other girls you'll find in My Model Wish List. I've done shoots with a Playboy model, a Penthouse model and a European porn star before, so shooting someone from that industry wouldn't necessarily be something new for me, but there's something that sets Sasha apart from those other models. It's probably because she seems like a bad ass that just doesn't give a fuck about what you think and there's something really sexy about that, not to mention she's extremely intellectual and well spoken which makes her that much more attractive. Awhile back she released her own book titled Neü Sex in which she gets behind the camera and documents her own life, I haven't checked it out yet, but I am interested in picking up a copy.
Sasha, if you stumble upon this post and want to shoot, send me an e-mail!
