I have known Anthony, or as I call him–Onra, for about 8 years. We first met at an Anime convention. We were both wearing cyberlox and getting pumped up for the rave. He was wearing a tiny green schoolgirl skirt and I remember him running up to me and my friends yelling about how pumped he was.
Fast forward 8 years later and we’re still doing the same shit. We originally scheduled this shoot back in May, but we accidentally chose the date that Animazement was on and had to reschedule. I drove down to Wilmington from Raleigh the night before the shoot—we had planned a sunrise shoot on the beach. Unfortunately, the forecast called for thunderstorms and rain. Fortunately—it held off for the entire morning! Though the sky was grey and we didn’t get those gorgeous orange and pink skies, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE how these photos turned out. Pink skies wouldn’t have fit these two anyways. Overexposed, Mad Max, desert vibes at the beach suited them much better.
I am so fortunate to have friends like this and I hope they and all of you, dear readers, love these photos as much as I do.
