There are some models who you never tire of working with as you are guaranteed of getting great shots, and one of them is definitely the incredible Madame Bink (INCREDIble BINK – get it!!!).
She has a superb look for art-nude, wonderful skin tone, amazing hair, and ‘the perfect’ hour glass figure, as shown in Exhibit A.

Now I owe Bink an apology as although I shot with her quite regularly, each time has coincided with various events meaning I have never really got around to working on our images. The last time was in July 2011 which coincided with the rush for my ARPS, DPAGB, EFIAP, other random combination of meaningless letters etc. However this was partially remedied recently when I turned around some images quite quickly after she selected them, and she kindly put them on her blog. We’ll gloss over the fact that they were from last July :D
Now I do have so many shoots where I have not really worked on the images – evidence available from most models I have worked with on request ;-) – that I could really stop shooting for a year or so and catch up. (Emoticon required for yeah that’s really going to happen).
So where to start with Bink, at the beginning I suppose in April 2010 when I was fortunate to work with her for the first time in Dave Hunt’s studio.
Let’s start with Bink’s amazing hair. Now I am sure that all photographer’s ask Bink to do a ‘hair flick’ the first time they work with her. So as I was a relative newbie here’s my effort. I’m sure it can’t be good for her neck so I didn’t ask her to do too many!

Then I was sure that nobody had ever asked her hair to hang down in front of her :)

Now I’m not quite sure why I took this next shot. I’ll give myself the benefit of the doubt and say it’s the hair again :-s
And again ;-)
Now looking back at my first attempt so long ago I’m quite pleased with the pictures, and I’ll be using some in competitions when I’ve done a bit more work on some of them (I do tend to muck about a bit with them for blogs, and pull it back a bit for competition images). I think we can safely put down the fact that they are decent images to the excellent model, and it does show that using a good model is a big part of getting great images.
So thank you Bink for all our great shoots, and I look forward to adding to our backlog in two weeks time :D
