Elaine_2480.jpg

Elaine Davidson holds the Guinness Book world record for the most piercings, with 6,725 and counting. She was kind enough to drop by our class today in Edinburgh for a quick portrait -- and provided a nonstop stream of entertainment to boot.

 

I have been shooting for ~25 years, and would like to think I am pretty good at controlling the pace and conversation in a shoot when I need to. But I concede utter defeat to Elaine. As many people as I have photographed, she has been photographed by far more -- and it shows.

 

Photographers are mere trifles and playthings for her.

 

It was *great* fun.
