I thought you'd pick that.
I'm finding that there are less and less models without tattoos, piercingly, shaved heads and the like and if they are devoid or body mods and extreme haircuts then you have to see if they have any talent for what I a trying to shoot.
So with that in mind I gave up a little while ago trying to find the "perfect" model for a motif, instead I get an idea, or find a model that works with an idea I've had and shoot a theme and a model.
As a part of this process it is almost a documentary theory in that I am trying to show the disconnect in this between the traditional, preconceived ideals of a ballerina with what dance students and ballerinas are today.
Jess is studying dance at uni, quite accomplished in a number of styles, obviously ballet one of her favourites from the tattoo.
Thanks for the comments so far.
