Every now and then I come across a photo that brings back some old memories… This is Rachel 18 from Lightspeed. I took this picture.
While I created a solo girl site on my own in the late 1990s, it wasn’t until I moved to Phoenix in 2000 that I started working in porn full time. And while shooting content wasn’t exactly my biggest strength I did shoot a lot of content back then. It was fun. It was a completely different world back then. Now chicks want their boyfriends want to be photographers so they can get dressed up to go out and take sexy photos to put on social media. Back then it was a lot more difficult to get women to pose for you, and A LOT more difficult to get them to pose naked for you.
But I took this photo of Rachel 18.
She was magical. She was the first woman I really shot. I was handed a camera, introduced to her, and was told to take pictures of her… And it was a great day. I remember it like it was yesterday.
She was wearing this black plastic leather like pants… we were playing music and we were just dancing all around the studio. Rachel 18 was a blast.
And I bet you she is still as beautiful as she was that day.
