Lysa, a beautiful and happy girl from Prague was the first model to arrive the villa. Within an hour she was naked and rolling naked in the hot sand with a big smile on her face and I was filling up my CF cards with sexy shots. Then the Moscow syndrome hit us. I went to meet and greet the Russian models and all I got was the cold shoulder and stories of how terrible the flight had been... this was not a very promising start.
After the Russians had settled in and relaxed I wanted to break the ice and do a brief "get to know each other" shoot. It was at this point one of the models pulled me aside and told me she was recently married and could not do any comprising photos...!!!??? By "compromising" she meant naked... even though she had already signed a detailed working contract and knew perfectly well that she had come to Thailand to get naked... this was turning into a nightmare.
After an hour of heavy discussions she unwillingly dropped her clothes and we did a short evening shoot just to get familiarized. But as we shut down tonight, the air is thick with a destructive attitude and I feel this is just the beginning...
