Model of the Month | Kat Taylor Q&A

Welcome to the second of our two part series on Kat Taylor, my Model of the Month for April 2011. I sat down with Kat for an exclusive Q&A. Kat is an amazing friend and colleague and we spent some time discussing everything from food in photo shoots to granny panties and animal rights.

Seichi Photography: I’m sitting here with Kat, Seichi Photography’s model of the month for April. How are you doing?
Kat Taylor: I’m doing well, how are you?
SP: I’m good. So, model of the month for April, huh?
KT: Yes, I’m very excited.
SP: So we’ve been shooting for quite a while. We’ve done several of these (shoots) together.
KT: Yes, and they’re all fabulous.
SP: Thanks. Whenever we work together, it seems like we always involve food. Why is that?
KT: You’re just really creative with food and its always fun.
SP: Do you think that’s like my thing?
KT: Yeah, I think you’re really good with food. You make it easy to pose with food. Its fun. I always feel like its something different. And since we did it the first time, it always felt like we should do it. I’m always looking forward to events with Seichi Photography.
SP:You’ve also participated in several runway shows right?
KT: Yes. I’ve done dresses and lingerie and casual wear.
SP: The lingerie one, is that the one you got stuck wearing granny panties?
KT: Oh yes! Yeah, I didn’t know we were supposed to bring our own panties for the lingerie, so I came, unprepared, and got stuck wearing granny panties during the show.
SP:Is there an ultimate goal with your modeling?
KT: I kinda just do it for me. I have a lot of goals and they change all the time, but right now my goal is to just keep having fun with it and hopefully someone will think I’m good and I’ll make it a career out of it.
SP: You’re also a certified dog groomer right?
KT: Yes, and I love it.
SP: How’d you get into doing that? You’re an advocate for animal rights, correct?
KT: Yes, I’m a huge animal lover. I kinda fell into this, but I feel it could be a really good career for me. It fits me really well. I love it.
SP: If not modeling, then this?
KT: If not then yeah, I probably would stay with animals.
SP: So maybe our next shoot, we should have you grooming a dog in granny panties.
KT: Okay! We could make something work…with a milkshake, too.
SP: Yeah, we’ll throw a milkshake in there, too. I guess people will have to stay tuned for that set.
KT: Should be great!

Industry Spotlight | Ivy Rose, Model

Ivy Rose is one of the most photogenic girls I have ever worked with. She has beauty, poise, and an amazing energy about her. We ended up shooting together on a random Saturday back in December when we both found some free time and agreed on an improvised session. She brought some of her favorite casual wear and we pieced together some outfits. Ivy engages the lens and captures your eye. Even before I loaded my images, I knew I loved this set.

Ivy has a website of her amazing work, check it out. She has also modeled for BoomBoomBrands clothing ( I encourage you to read her profile page), Serephine, and done calendars to benefit non-profit organizations.

Ivy has a selfless nature about her, always helping those in need, truly an inspiration. Its her character, that indeed, makes her beautiful.

Below is the gallery of images we created that Saturday. Also check out her Model Mayhem page for other images.
