Dressed in bright yellow spandex, 62-year-old fitness phenom Evie LaRosa poses under hot studio lights. She runs through an inner catalog of exaggerated body turns and erotic facial expressions. “Gorgeous,” I yell. “Beautiful. Love it.” I hobble across the floor on my thick rubber knee pads. “I love it. So sexy,” clicking away on my Nikon D3.

It sounds like typical photographer – speak. That’s my method, and it’s been virtually unchanged throughout my career; an exercise in verbal love taps and excitable nudging dipped in coarse language that’s quite amusing to witness. It’s all part of the performance, a “sexual dance” with the model as I often call it. It’s always been my way of connecting with models.
