During the months of October and November this year, I partnered with an outstanding photographer to conduct a photo shoot with three professional models wearing our NewAct IV line of super sheer pantyhose for an “Autumn at Central Park in NYC” theme.

The idea was to make a new slide for the home page of the ActSensuous website.

A few (seriously, only a few) of the devoted readers of this blog have raved about the new slide, so I thought some of you might want to see more pictures from the sets among the three professional models.

Dinara kh

Originally from Moscow, Russia, Dinara’s professional modeling experience includes taking part in car shows, exhibitions and a bikini contest in Moscow.  Additionally, Dinara has been a runway model, performed in promotional modeling assignments, and she has stood in foot modeling gigs in New York.  You’ll see why the foot modeling.  Wow!

Besides all that, the 5’6, 110-pound, Eastern European beauty with olive skin has made her presence known in a variety of genres, including acting, dance, fashion, fitness, glamour, sports and stunts.  And, she’s been a host and spokesperson.

Here is Dinara in Central Park:

Daryann Danielle

Describing herself as “a natural performer since the age of 2,” Daryann is talented in various forms of dance, such as ballet/pointe, modern/contemporary, African, jazz, tap, hip hop and lyrical.

“As I grew in age and talent, I expanded my versatile abilities, going into the fields of modeling, as well as singing and acting,” Daryann tells us.  “As I continue to get older, I look to better myself and my career, while taking modeling, acting and dancing to the next level.”

The 22-year-old New Yorker is 5’4, 98 pounds and wears a size 0 dress.  Daryann performs in many genres, including acting, art, dance, fashion, fitness, glamour, hair/makeup, lifestyle, artistic, and promotional.  Additionally, she’s been a hostess and a spokesperson.

One of the things we loved about Daryann from the beginning is she wrote in response to our casting call:  “The shoot seems very classy and I am comfortable in pantyhose.”

Alisa Sharoikina 

Originally from Belarus, the 25-year-old is a professional psychologist and a freelance model who is passionate about everything she does.

Alisa’s list of projects includes acting, body paint, fashion modeling, fitness modeling, glamour, hair/makeup, lifestyle, lingerie, pinup, promotional modeling, runway and swimwear modeling.  Also, Alisa has been a spokesperson and hostess.

After the shoot, Alisa wrote:  “Just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure to shoot for ActSensuous!!!  I fell in love with the pantyhose!  I’d be honored to be considered for future projects.”

My deepest thanks to professional models, Dinara, Daryann and Alisa for representing ActSensuous with beauty, glamour and class.

The photographer

Pro photographer, Linley of LawrenceNyPhoto, sets up a shot with professional model, Dinara, for ActSensuous during October 2016 at Central Park in New York City.

I have worked many times before with professional photographers, but this time, I was looking for someone new; someone with a New York state of mind.

I had been talking with a few of our customers in NYC, hoping that maybe someone knew of a good photographer, and my hunch paid off, as one couple who own a gift shop recently had professional photography done for their store’s catalog.  They highly recommended a fellow entrepreneur who also is a professional photographer, and that’s how I became introduced to Linley of LawrenceNyPhoto.   I pitched the idea of “Autumn at Central Park in NYC” to Linley, and he instantly jumped on board, bringing tons of energy, enthusiasm and professionalism to the project.

So I have to give a special shout-out to Linley, who truly deserves all the credit for pulling this thing off under a tight budget and a tighter deadline.  Almost single-handedly, Linley helped to identify and screen the best models out of many dozens based in the NYC area.   He also chose the venues, coordinated the shoots, handled all the little details, and along the way, delivered some fantastic photos.  Wouldn’t you say?

Again, my thanks to Linley.

Want to play?

Whenever I invest in a project for our website or blog, I always try to steer the business to one of our customers or loyal readers of this blog.  I enjoy keeping things in the family. Case in point, our website was created by a customer, David (and his wife, Sheri).

So customers, or readers here, sometimes, it pays (literally) to let me know what you do for a living, as I have lots of ideas in my head, many of which can turn into paying opportunities.   If you offer a special talent or skill set that could be useful in my campaign to bring pantyhose back into the mainstream of fashion, entertainment, and as a staple in American culture, and if you desire to cooperate on a project, please approach me.
