I use to shoot most of the content images for Playboy® Playmate Barbara Moore for her members website which is no longer available!

As a working photographer I used to come up with idea's that are inspired by something or place depending on what I am thinking about & photographing a lot of very sexy girls is always part of my mix. I was requested some time back to shoot some images of Dita Von Tease & her people wanted me to shoot something like the Marilyn Monroe images that had been taken of her on the beach in a sweater. That project never came to pass so I kept that thought in my head so one day when I found one of my sister’s sweater’s I thought it would be a great for Barbara to wear at the beach and seeing this sweater it came back to me about the Marilyn Monroe shots, time to do the sweater idea.

There is this beach in Malibu California and I had shot at before, so I know what was there to use as a backdrop. It also happens to be the spot were Herb Ritts shot many time's, it’s like the goto place for the photographers that are in the know. I had shot Barbara with direct sunlight many times before and she looks fantastic when shot that way posing into the golden sunlight. Just in the case I needed some of my own light I took with me a strobe that was able to kick out about 200-watts. This strobe (Q-Light) has a great recycling time it's very quick & I did use this strobe on some other images I shot that day. In these images I used one of my Canon camera's a 60D F 5.0 – F 4.5 with a very quick shutter speed of 1/600 with ISO 200 as to capture Barber’s every move as she was posing on the beach. That’s how I did it and came up with the idea.
