If you haven’t been introduced to the wild world of Ellen Stagg yet, you should take a seat and get comfortable. As one of the prominent players in erotic photography, Ellen has shot everyone from Scarlett Johansson to Justine Joli. We had the chance to sit down with her on a recent shoot with NYC burlesque legend Hazel Honeysuckle, and got the scoop of how it all went down:
“This was the first time that Hazel ever got naked on still camera, for anyone, and I was lucky that it was me. I met Hazel through the burlesque world here in NYC, as she performs a ton at Wasabassco, and I have always been smitten by her. She contacted me that she wanted to shoot for my site, and I couldn’t have said yes quicker.
When the set on my site came out, many of our mutual friends were extremely surprised that she had willingly posed naked. Since then, she has gone worked with a bunch of photographers and is even in that Netflix show “House of Cards” naked. This shoot was the beginning of a lovely friendship on and off camera, and that is the most important thing to me.”
