Is there something you want?
Bear in mind that:
a) I am super busy and will not have time to respond to comments here; but I'll read them (I read fast)
b) I can't guarantee I'll be able to do any or all or even some of what you suggest
c) Other stockers also read my journals so if you post an idea here, you're posting it where other stockers might pick it up and run with it. How cool is that?
d) You won't have an exclusive on anything you ask for or see here; any stock I do that's not commissioned for a specific artist is going to wind up public. If you have a precious idea you want to keep, don't post it here.
Yes I know it would be nice to see more male stock. I have 2 really buff guys coming in, hopefully in February. Generally I don't shoot guys because, um, well, I like how girls look better. My plan for the guys is to shoot them dressed up as pirates (arr!) and in classical wrestling poses, as well as some body part studies. What actually happens may be very different.
I'm also planning on shooting more stock with Sarah Ellis - the Bodice Buster Project was a lot of fun for us, and if the weather is good we may try some "highwayman and village girl" stock. I've got this microscopically small sexy Mrs Santa Claus outfit and I'm going to try to get some last-minute Mrs Claus stock of Sarah for you.
Remember that my budget and patience for props is somewhat limited. I have lots of swords and costumes and stuff like that but I sometimes get requests like: "I want a shot of Sarah Ellis leaping out of a refrigerator waving a chainsaw while wearing a block of gouda cheese on her head!" - don't complain if it's cheddar, OK?
So, what do you want to see?
you all (well, most of you anyhow)
PS - my stock image "Death Rides a Pale Trike"

is vying for the top slot all-time for DA stocky goodness. I'm not asking you to fave it or anything, but if you dig it and want to make me happy, show it some love.
