Lavonne is from Alberta, Canada. She is a Suicide Girl, a Staff Photographer and a really good artist, and has been modeling and shooting sets since 2005.

How did you first get involved with SuicideGirls?

I applied and sent in my first self-shot sets in 2004. I hadn’t done anything like it before and thought it would be fun. Then other girls started asking me to photograph them too.

What’s your background photography-wise?

I’ve been shooting for fun since high school and have taken a few courses for darkroom developing, but am mostly self taught.

What was the first photo you had published?

My Tropical set, which I shot with a crappy point and shoot camera and lit with a reading lamp. I think my work has come a long way.



How would you describe your style?

Emotional and real (ideally).



What gear do you use?

For the last 4-5 years, a Canon 5D, mostly with a 50mm f1.4 lens. Rin’s Voyeur set was my only set with a different lens: a 100mm for a more distant feel.

How important is Photoshop in your final images?

I like to use it to remove major distractions and to create dream-like coloring, but I try to keep images natural looking.



What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such amazing sets?

I get most of my inspiration from the model and location I’m working with. I prefer shoots to be organic, and keep my own ego out of the way. Photography can often overtake a subject’s true beauty.

What is your favorite image?

There are many that come to mind, but this photo of Rin and Malloreigh [NSFW] is high on the list.

Tell us why it’s your fave and how you achieved it?

I love it mostly because of the good memories of that day. We created a super pink and girly scene, put on a bubble machine, then jumped around and had pillow fights! It wasn’t really about techniques or skill, I just captured a really lovely afternoon as best as I could. It was magical and real, and for me that is what life is about.



Is there anybody or anything you would love to photograph that you haven’t? (And tell us why)

There are lots of people and places I’d like to photograph! Models that are passionate and genuine. Places that are inspiring and remote. I want to experience as much of this world as I can.
