“Art Photos” — the phrase sounds kind of pretentious now because it’s so overused. But when I started out shooting naked girls it was really what it was all about. Long before pay sites were a thing. This is, we’re talking, 1987. That’s when I shot my first nude photo. It was this woman who lived in my neighborhood of Carlsbad when I lived on Acacia Avenue a couple of blocks away from the beach. I made her acquaintance through a friend of hers that I’d met on the beach.
She knew I was interested in drawing nudes (that’s how it started, I was into art) and she referred her friend to me, a tall woman of about 5-9 with a studio tan and curly golden hair. Total California beach-mama. She was in her mid 30’s so about twelve years older than me and had had at least one kid. We were in my apartment bedroom and she was laying on my bed naked and I was doing a pencil sketch of her when she asked me if I had a camera. “Yes I do,” I said. “Why?”
“I want you to take a picture of me doing a back-bend.”
I was 23 years-old and if she hadn’t asked me I was too shy to ever ask her. So I got my Nikon off of my desk and made sure it was loaded. It usually was because at the time I was always shooting nightclub photos for a local alternative arts quarterly magazine. But I wanted to make sure because I didn’t want to blow my big chance. She got up off my bed and readied herself on the carpet. I put the viewfinder up to my eye and she spring up into position: a perfect back arch with her right knee pointing to me, her head tilted way back and her tits pointing up at the ceiling. This was the late 1980’s so girls weren’t shaving then and her big dishwater-blonde bush covering her cunt was gloriously revealed. I know that sounds vulgar but it’s appropriate here.
Somewhere I still have the 4×6″ color Kodak print of this photo from the Sav-On developing center on El Camino Real that I used those printing coupons for. Archived somewhere else is the negative.
It was admittedly a pretty slow and timid start but it took a female asking me to take her photo before I got rolling in this game. I’m really glad she did too. I love women’s nudes. Over the years some of these girls have turned out to be a bit crazy — some in a good way and some maybe not — but I love all of them. And I’ll always love the art.
Below is a photo of another female nude, not the one described above but a girl in her mid-twenties that I shot a few years back when I lived in another beach community in Ocean Beach. It was shot at my Sunset Cliffs apartment.

I wanted to do a spanking clip with a real fetish model, one who knew what to expect and how to react. Not that it’s all that difficult, but there’s certain subtleties that a girl picks up by osmosis from being on shoots and around the industry for a while. Asphyxia has been getting hired by various webmasters since she was 18, eventually worked for about four years with all the largest video companies.
So Asphyxia Noir is just such a girl and I have to tell you I felt really privileged to shoot with her. She’s famous for being strikingly attractive with raven hair and pale skin, large natural boobs that are perfectly shaped and just a flawless physique in every way. On a scale of one to ten she’s easily a ten. On her worst hangover “with two-hours sleep and no makeup on” morning she might be maybe a nine-and-a-half. But then all she’d have to do is strip naked and then she’d shoot back up to a ten. She’s fucking rad.
Meanwhile I’m like at best a three-and-a-half or a four.
This is why I was freaking out at my luck last May when I got a chance to work with her again. It had been a couple of years since I’d shot with her and last time her husband was in the apartment too, he even joined in and was really cool. He wasn’t actually part of the “adult” portion of the shoot but the two of them did a great video interview together. But this time she was divorced and in-between relationships (she’s never actually alone of course) so I wanted to try out a spank session on video. I’m really happy with how it turned out and it felt good to get a chance to do it with her.
I thought I had posted this already. I think I did but then it got deleted somehow, probably when we changed servers or something. Anyhow here it is, the glorious Taylor Haze gallery from that time she came over as a brand spanking new nude model seeking adult work. There’s a video around here somewhere that I’ll format and post later but for now check out her sexy tanned legs and rocking firm ass.
This was like a couple of years ago and I think she’s probably moved on to other things in her life now and might have left the adult modeling behind. Sometimes these girls do it for a little while when they want to have some wild fun and see if it’s something they can do, then they get it out of their system. Others do it for a while longer and make as much money as they can and either go on to work for some of the larger companies or else do it part-time and keep it as a low-key part of their life. I think Taylor was the former rather than the latter. I got the feeling from her that she was just doing this to have a wild phase and not to pursue it as a “career” per-se.
I should have kept up with her but after our shoot other models and activities took priority and I lost her phone number. I’m kind of a dooshbag I guess. It was fun to meet her though for this night that she had me hire her for. She came over to my apartment in Ocean Beach late one night and we shot some photos and did some real explicit fetish clips. The girl was not shy at all. She was in great physical shape and had super firm legs and a nice rock-hard ass that she used to full effect. She had several tattoos in traditional old-school dark blue that were all subtly placed, attractive and really creative, each one having a story that went with it. She said her intention was to get as many tattoos as she could.
Taylor Haze was and is a super sexy California beach girl that will give you an immediate boner.
