I recently posted two IM convos between photographer Holly Randall and a friend of mine who writes a well-known adult industry news & gossip site. There was no malice intended. I simply thought the IM convos, which were already e-published with Ms. Randall's knowledge, would be of interest to some people here... you know, by providing a bit of insight into a well-known glam-shooter's world.

Well, it seems that some of the comments made by GG members (to my posts) have made their way onto the adult industry news & gossip site I've referred to--although not as a result of any communications I had with the site's author--and these replies have elicited a few comments from Ms. Randall... also partially motivated due to some extra commentary I emailed to the other site's author.

Again, no malice intended. but I think this new stuff might also be of interest to some here. Here's what is currently e-published on the other site:

Holly Randall says: "My assistants set up the lights, but I make the final decisions. I decide what kind of lighting I want, they just do it for me."

My friend then writes on his site: I ask Holly about her photography aesthetic. She says she likes the 'leggy pin-up style' and she likes to be 'edgy.'

I saw the above on my friend's site and I emailed him with my take on it. He then posted my email.

James DiGiorgio writes me: I dunno, Luke. I think I'd call her on the "edgy" comment. She's a good shooter and she certainly has huge shoes to fill. It helps, of course, that she gets to shoot the top-of-the-line porn and glamour girls and she gets to do so with great hair stylists and make-up artists working their magic and in cool locations with assistants making it all easier to accomplish.

I took a tour of her site and, while I can readily see the "pin-up" aesthetic in her work, I couldn't find a single image that i thought qualifies as "edgy." But then, "edgy" is one of those over-used PR-type words: like when people say they're pushing "envelopes" or taking porn to new "levels."


It seems my comments were communicated to Ms. Randall who then responded.

Holly tells me: "I'm talking about MY work, not the stuff I shoot for my mom. If I showed you my work from school you'd see what i mean. But no one will see that stuff because I don't have model releases."

I call bull****.

In all jurisdictions of which I am aware, you can display such images for editorial and educational purposes unless there was an explicit agreement between the model and the photographer that they would be kept confidential.

Ms. Randall is of course far better at photography than I am or will probably ever be, but if you can't put up, you had best shut up.
