Latex Photoshoot Behind The Scenes…
Today, I’m going to take you behind the scenes on my recent latex photoshoot in London! Before we get onto the main blog here’s some pre-shoot prep and packing images from my phone.
I spend a few hours the night before a shoot deciding what shoes and boots to take, what stockings, what tights, what lingerie, make-up, hair products and God knows what else.
When you’re styling your own photoshoot there is A LOT to take in and prep for, especially when it’s with latex because you want to ensure that you have nothing on your body that will cause the latex to mark, stain or rip.
Luckily for me, I really enjoy doing all of it and I’m also super organised so I have it down to a very fine art It’s almost like some sort of military fetish operation.
Awaiting the arrival of the postman a few hours before you are due on a shoot is always tense. Will he arrive on time? Even though he’s meant to arrive by 1?
I’m sure we’ve all been there! It’s even more fun when you’re sat preparing yourself for a photoshoot, half way through doing your hair and make-up with your post-hot-roller hair going in all directions, backcombed into oblivion.
Low and behold the postman pulls up in his van and you dart down the stairs as quickly as you can. You fling the door open, the postman is standing there quite cheery and pleased with himself that he made it in time.
He tells me “sometimes we don’t tend to come out till 12:30pm for 1pm deliveries.” Oh, really?
Well, I told him: “I sure am glad you came earlier today!”
I just love knowing that he’s standing there clutching a parcel full of Honour Latex clothing delights to be worn on a latex photoshoot and hasn’t got a clue!
Signing my name and grabbing the parcel I can’t wait to unwrap it and see the latex goodies inside, so I take out each item and do a quick trying on!
However, I end up in quite a fluster and before you know it I’m a hot sweaty mess and smelling of latex LOL. I’m always eager to try everything to make sure it fits! There’s Nothing worse than getting on a shoot and not knowing if the items you bring actually fit you.
Luckily, I decide to opt for some comfortable footwear for my journey to my shoot today: Dr Marten boots.
My shoot took place at a well-known London building, around it and outside it but on my way there I decided to have a quick stop off at West Ham station to go to one of my favourite quirky cafés for a quick pre-shoot breakfast: the Rial Lifestyle Café.
Once I arrive, the photographer is someone I haven’t worked with before which is always quite a gamble. So, on arrival, we walk to the location carrying our luggage with us. Oh the glamour! No slaves for me today to help me out and assist!
Once we arrive we soon realise we didn’t pick the best day, a gig was on that evening and there were loads of people about. It
wouldn’t have been too bad because it was just latex, but we still might have been kicked out the grounds.
I change in the toilets into some sexy lingerie, stockings and Christian Louboutin heels and begin to shoot around the the outside of the building.
I keep having to rush to take a cardigan on and off to try to disguise what we’re doing! But we soon gain an audience of cheeky men who can’t help but get a good viewing spot and watch from close by. Good job I’m an exhibitionist type and not shy!
Sadly, we have to keep moving on as we keep coming close to security guards, so we move further down the grounds to a quiet spot, only to have some snooty woman come over to us who was passing by, remarking:
“This is hardly appropriate. It’s a FAMILY AREA!”
Dear me… It’s not like I was naked… It’s pretty much equivalent to a bikini! Besides, this is London darling!
We briefly move down a long winding path and I change back into my Dr Martens, God forbid I mess up my Louboutins. So we find some woodland and begin doing more shooting on very moist ground, still dodging random passers-by!
We do some topless and nude shots and, boom! someone passes again so I have to make a dash to my pile of clothes on the ground, quickly trying to find something to cover me even a little!
This shoot is hardly going to plan, and it soon becomes apparent that I won’t be modelling any latex outside today
I scamper about getting dressed fully and we walk to the photographer’s flat (it felt like the longest walk ever, up and down hills and God knows where) we finally arrive and I quickly get my stuff out my case and decide what I’m going to wear this time.
Sadly the photographer wants to finish shooting quite soon, a real shame as I’d set by an entire day for shooting. But we decide on 2 latex outfits from the Honour range.
I decide to wear:
- Latex Rubber Pencil Skirt in black
- Latex Rubber Candy Crossover Top
A super cute combo that even makes it look like a dress when worn together and I really love the strap detail on the bra, the cross over design is very flattering. Plus, you can never go wrong with a latex pencil skirt: SO VERSATILE! It can be mix-and-matched with latex AND non latex items.
For my second look, I decided to go for:
- Dynasty Halter Dress
This dress is VA VA VOOM! It hugs your curves incredibly well and shows off your booty amazingly! The halter neck design brings excellent shape to the bust and sets off the dress just perfectly. It also has this stripe print panelling detail in black and white which provides a classy contrast. If you love a pencil dress then you’ll love this garment!
Here’s a little behind the scenes Vine video clip from my phone:
I was super sad not to get time to model the rest of the items I picked, but never fear! I have shoots already planned in which I’ll be modelling Honour items again!
We ended up having to make use of the photographer’s spare room and a blue wall which wasn’t really ideal for a latex photoshoot, but we managed!
We didn’t have the greatest space in the world to work with but, it just goes to prove to you all that you do not need fancy studios to produce good images.
Sadly, with the lack of time and feeling rather rushed, I didn’t feel I achieved what I set out to do, I did however find these two images I liked, so, here they are!:
After shooting was finished, it was now time to pack up and get dressed and make my way home! Till next time…
