Deena pretty much defines the word "cosmopolitan". She comes from southern Italy, lives officially in Amsterdam, spends a lot of time in London with her boyfriend, and considers herself homeless as she is always on the road! She is a very smart, sexy and versatile model.
2017-08-20 - Deena D in "Just One Month After" Believe it or not, we shot this set just one month after Deena had her baby. She was convinced she was fat!
2017-07-23 - "The Original Plan" One of the results of shooting that long project with Deena is that there was a two year gap between shooting this set and processing it. This means I have no idea why it is called "The Original Plan" either!
2017-06-29 - "Warm Pink Glow" Another one of Deena's lovely pregnancy sets, this time with a very interesting warm pink glow :)
2017-04-30 - "Lit By The Window" This is a surprisingly dark set of Deena lit by the window. It wasn't as light as I thought :)
2017-03-30 - "Red Underwear" A brief set with lovely Deena, this time in her red underwear :)
2016-12-18 - "At My Window" Another of our pregnancy sets. This time we braved some rather difficult lighting by having Deena sit in the window :)
2016-11-20 - "Coffee Time" This was more of a break than a photo shoot! But Deena looked so good I decided to get a little adventurous with lighting and take a few shots :)
2016-10-30 - "Red Soles" I'm not sure that Deena knows what red soles are supposed to signify. If you don't know I'm not telling! The do look great though, don't they :)
2016-09-04 - "Very Close" A lovely set from the last of the pregnancy shoots I did with Deena, and I got very close!
2016-08-11 - "In The Next Room" Do you remember the scene in Fawlty Towers where Sybil said "If you're going to molest a guest, at least have the decency to be in the same room"? Well, here I didn't have the decency to be in the same room as Deena when I took the pictures! And yes, that background is the wall of her living room :)
2016-07-17 - "Favourite Spot" This set was shot during the final shoot of our pregnancy series, using what had quickly become my favourite spot in her house for shooting. I managed to get a different look for these though!
2016-05-22 - "Pale Green" In case you hadn't realised, the pale green refers to the very nice lingerie set Deena is wearing here :)
2016-03-13 - "From Outside" I came over all shy and starting shooting Deena from outside the bedroom :) No, not really. But is gives a bit of a peek-a-boo feel to this set, one of the later ones in Deena's pregnancy.
2016-02-21 - "On The Stairs" This is Deena stripping on the stairs, still looking ever so slightly pregnant :) But also very stylish...
2016-01-24 - "Cradle The Bump" A lovely set from my last shoot with Deena when she was pregnant, very pregnant by now :)
2015-12-13 - "Shot In The Dark" My new camera is one of those with exception low light capabilities - it can more or less see in the dark. So I thought I'd try it.... :)
2015-11-28 - "Kind Of Hidden" I think the little skirt is one of those things which is supposed to hide the bump a little :) It certainly looks good.
2015-11-08 - "Very Slightly Pregnant" They say you can't be a little bit pregnant, you either are or you aren't. Well I'm not sure with Deena! She works out so much you can hardly tell at all! In fact, I could only tell from the side, and I know her quite well! I will be following her throughout her pregnancy, so I'm sure that on our next shoot in 6 weeks time it will be a lot more obvious :)
2015-11-01 - "Candle In The Way" I could quote the song, but I won't. I could run into copyright trouble! This was a little bit of fun at the end of a long shoot, just about keeping it decent.
2015-10-18 - "Gold Dress" Deena really looks lovely in this dress, with this background. Every so often even I really nail it, and this is one of those times!
2015-10-18 - "Across The Table" A nice set from the last pregnancy shoot with Deena, across the table in her dining room :)
2015-09-03 - "Lifestyle Images" Now we're really getting classy! There is a real editorial/fashion feel about this set, even with the nudity. One of my favourite ever sets.
2015-08-02 - "You Can See It Now" Deena seem to be determined to not look pregnant for as long as possible, but you can definitely see it now. I tried to reassure her, I mean, she looks gorgeous doesn't she?
2015-08-02 - "Dungarees" I've never really considered dungarees to be particularly stylish or erotic, but I've changed my mind. Pregnant Deena looks amazing in them here, and pretty lovely out of them :)
2015-07-19 - "Straps" I just had to put Deena into this amazing dress, she looks perfect in it. The depth of field really makes her smoulder.
2015-06-11 - "Barely Noticeable" Another cool set of Deena D hardly looking pregnant at all! Well, if you look closely, from the side, it is barely noticeable :)
2015-05-20 - "My Stool" I have a dodgy back and knees. It comes with age, along with being long sighted and unable to stay awake all afternoon. Anyway I use this stool a lot when shooting, and occasionally I give it to the model while I grovel around on the floor - a lot on the floor in this set of Deena!
2015-04-02 - "Blue Denim" Deena is wearing some blue denim. Only some, in fact a very small amount! Kindly, she gradually removes it all.
2015-02-26 - "Natural Light" I almost always start off with a new model by shooting a simple strip set on my plain background, the easiest thing to shoot. I learn more about a model in 2 minutes of her taking her kit off than in a week of emails, phone calls, and googling her other work. When Deena arrived, there was bright sunshine blazing through my windows, the first time we'd seen it in about a month, so I shot our introductory scene with natural light. In case you haven't realised, Deena ticked all the boxes!
2015-01-18 - "I Don't Know What The D Stands For" I don't think it really matters :) Especially when the alternative to pondering this eternal verity is to look at the beautiful naked Deena.
