Model: Hannah Goldy
Location: Brooklyn, NY
This was Hannah's first shoot with a serious photographer. This was a test for a concept I'd had to shoot lingerie/boudoir in a less traditional way that was still cool and cinematic and sexy.
We ended up becoming friends - she's an absolute sweetheart, we laughed at each other's jokes, and we're both students of Martial Arts.
When I first shot with Hannah, I believe her ring name was "The Drill."
These days, she's going by "The Queen of Sparta."
I dig it, man. 'Cause, you have to see her fight. Especially now, especially after seeing these pictures. She's crazy fierce, an absolute steamroller. And, tough. Our second shoot, she had bruises that danced up and down her legs, and she told me how a sparring partner had tagged her really good and that made moving into certain poses hurt; but, she didn't tell the dude, didn't want him to feel bad.
"The Queen of Sparta." Yeah. Fits in my mind.
