This was by far one of the most challenging photo shoots I've done in a long while.
The model and I arrived at the bridge at about 4:45 in the morning. Believe it or not, but there is still a heavy amount of traffic coming from both sides, even at that early hour. At each end of the bridge there is a traffic signal and we waited for each side to sync with a red light.
When that would happen, we had a window of about 15 seconds before cars would come barreling across the bridge from both directions, 4 seconds of those dedicated purely to the exposure (it was still very dark).
It was almost like synchronized swimming in a way and we repeated the process about four times crossing out fingers that one of the shots would turn out well.
Ron Jeremy's Club Sesso has its first First Thursday art show tomorrow. Andrew Kaiser is the featured artist and his work is beautiful as you can see from this shot at St John's Bridge (You can view more of his work on Flickr here = NSFW). Also, if you haven't been in Club Sesso before, here is a chance to check it out at a “non-sexual event and FREE of charge”. No word on whether Ron will be there.
Press release from Sesso after the break…

FEATURED ARTIST: Portland Photographer Andrew Kaiser will show his work one-of-a kind art exhibit sure to knock the socks off viewers. Mr. Kaiser's work features the nude form in black and white film, color film, Polaroid, digital and pinhole media. Kaiser states, "I am a firm believer that creating an image with the sole purpose in mind of making something beautiful is a worthy goal in the world of art . . . The final image, much like real life, should be allowed to come to a fluid and natural result." Kaiser's award-winning work has been seen in solo and group exhibitions in Germany, New York, and various shows around the Pacific Northwest. Kaiser has also been the Editor and Chief of Luminous Magazine and The New Nude publications.
Following the Open House & Erotic Art Exhibit the club will open for it's regularly schedule members only party.
