Wrong holiday? Maybe, but stick around.

Based on Long Island, New York, Michael Zinn has long experience at the interface between photography and the corporate and advertising world. He also takes some beautiful shots of women.

In 2011, he created Women of Armageddon, intending it as a post-apocalyptic spoof of a girlie calendar. The idea took off, and is still going strong.

So he combines corporate work with high-concept shoots which take their inspiration from such areas of popular culture as comic books, movie posters and pinups: it’s the art of photography as practised by a graphic designer.

In 2012, he did a seasonal Women of Armageddon shoot with the New York rock star Mick James.

Five or six months later, she wasn’t so lucky. But then Mick James was playing Santa, who is known for having naughty girls on his lap.
