Well here we are a new year and a new test shot segment. This time I got to shoot with Anastasia Esper. I had met her years ago through my pal Asa Akira. We had been talking about the idea of shooting photos for a long time now but never got around to it. Maybe it is scheduling or maybe things just happen when they happen, if that makes any sense. She had just recently relocated to the Beverly Hills area in a cool vintage apartment. Since we actually had finally planned a shoot she suggested we shoot there after she settles in, well she got settled and I came and shot a few sets with her. Anastasia already has camera experience mainly in the form of acting. and some modeling so shooting with her was fun and easy. I picked this set due to the setting of being in her hallway of her building and the great lighting it had which made for some good pictures,take a look below for yourself to see.
