Wetlands in Schaumburg

Schaumburg, Illinois | Penthouse | 1981

I was shooting a girl to submit to Penthouse. I always tried to create a "personality" for each model that I photographed.

In this case she would be a "photographer." I took pictures of her in this swamp wearing wading boots, swimsuit, vest, and carrying a camera. Then I shot this photo to represent one of my model's "art" photos as she adapted the persona of a photographer.

Subsequently, I photographed her inspecting blow-ups of these scenes, and finally shot her posing in an apartment where this photo was a wall mural.
