Tried to take pictures of the eclipse today. I should have done a few things differently.
The weather seems to be getting better. I want to do some public fetish shoots if anyone is up for it.
These will be “for fun” shoots, compensation being trade for images with image rights for all parties involved.
It was a few years before I did another public fetish shoot. this one was in the fall of 2000.
I just came across these images a couple of days ago after many years. The interesting thing is the model in these images contacted me yesterday asking me to photograph her again this summer.
way back in 1998 this was the first time I did a public fetish photo shoot. I do not remember how I met the model, but I picked her up on Bainbridge Island, and we rode the ferry back to Seattle. This is also where my term, “Terrorizing the Tourists” came from.
She went by a couple of names, Despair, and Omoikuru predominantly.
These were all shot on film with a little point and shoot camera. we all have to start somewhere…
So this name, Andraste, when I first found it in an old book about ancient Celtic mythology, it had not been used for hundreds, perhaps close to a thousand years.
I needed a unique name for a project I was working on. So I searched for a name that sounded cool but was not in use anywhere else.
A model I photographed and am now friends with started calling me Patrick Andraste to differentiate me from other Patricks she knew. Because of her popularity, other people started calling me that and it stuck.
Now it is the name of a few bands, video game characters, and quite a few people are using it as their names.
I kind of liked being the only one.
