It was a blast working with Rachel again and having an opportunity to do a shoot with a lovely tarantula as well. I’ve shown some images to a few people and the majority of the reactions were themed around “ew” and “weren’t you afraid?”
She was quite a civil model and only became slightly defensive once. The spider, not Rachel.
I learned that tarantulas, when handled in a respectful way, are very reasonable creatures and really, they just want to hang out somewhere safe.
This shoot was fun and another example of why Rachel is a great model. This was all her idea!
Visit my Fashion gallery to see the rest from this shoot – more should be added soon!
