I loved photographing Rubylee Riot for Inked Magazine‘s pinup issue. The editors asked me to photograph Rubylee at Madeline’s Bar in Costa Mesa, where she bartends a few nights per week. Inked asked me to make sure I shot Rubylee behind the bar rather than sitting on it, so we took photos of her making martinis, serving up drinks and showing off her fabulous wardrobe. I was assisted by the fabulous Joe and Mirta Barnet at Barnet Photography, who offered up their home to me the night before so I would have to drive down at 4 a.m., and who also joined me on the shoot with a car full of extra gear. I love Joe and Mirta. Rubylee was so delightful to work with, and the team at Inked Magazine couldn’t have been nicer. My friend Robert Alvarado did the beautiful cover image.
