Amelia, one of my favorite models, has a pet python named Seymour. He is very dear to her, like one of her children. I wanted to make an image of Amelia and her snake that was seductive without showing too much. The inspiration for this shot comes from the late San Francisco based photographer Debra McClinton, http://www.debramcclinton.com, and the Cleopatra images of the silent film star Theda Bara. Thank you Amelia and Seymour.
