Scott Saw, whose background is in fine art, runs the San Diego firm Vixen Photography with his partner, the ballerina and burlesque performer Kixxi Galore: Kixxi poses the models and he photographs them. And with her dancer’s eye for line and his artist’s eye for detail, the results tend to be stupendous!
Much of Vixen’s work is in the genres of pin-up and boudoir, shading into fetish and ‘alternative’, the latter often another way of saying ‘tattooed women’. One particular tattooed woman who will be relevant to us is Porcelain Midnight, seen here drawing attention to what she has called her ‘famous bum’:
And here it is with Ashley Jade, whose bum will also be relevant later on:
But Scott is a commercial photographer who will turn his lens to whatever a client may require. From time to time, for example, Vixen supplies the photobooth at parties, which allows revellers to be photographed doing whatever takes their uninhibited fancy:
The firm also does the occasional publicity shoot, notably one for a 2015 tour by the band William Control, whose work combines Goth style with electronic music. One aspect of William Control’s interests may be guessed from some of the branded merchandise it has on offer:
And if you can’t guess from those hot pants, check out the band’s 2016 Valentine’s Day card to its fans:
So the theme for the tour promo shoot, featuring lead singer Wil Francis, drew on the ‘fetish’ end of Vixen’s expertise. And it was also going to be ‘alternative’, because the other contributor was none other than Porcelain Midnight. Here they are together:
Of course, it’s Porcelain whose pants are going to become hot.
Well, they would if there was enough of them there to heat!
Never mind, Wil goes at it with a will:
And lest you should imagine they’re only posing, just look at the after effects:
Porcelain didn’t just get hit; she was a hit. So much so that she joined the band for some of their shows and VIP events.
And in case you’re wondering whether her ‘famous bum’ could stand the heat, we have proof positive in another shoot she did for Vixen with Ashley Jade, in which she needed to be able to sit down:
