BrainCase Photography excerpt:
Gore Noir: Really cool shoot Jessy! Is there a story behind the images? What were you going for when setting it up?
Jessy BrainCase: Thanks!! This shoot actually turned our different than I thought it would. It was inspired by the song Caraphernelia by Pierce the Veil basically saying why pick up the pieces of something that cant be fixed, at least that’s how I interpreted it. I was going for a more artistic way of portraying it that also ended up being more "sexy" than I thought.
GN: Tomi Terror is a scream! How did you get hooked up with her and bring us these great images?
JB: She is awesome! Looking forward to shooting her and her boyfriend soon. She is actually a friend of a friend that I used to work with. He was going to be in town and wanted to set something up so I can shoot her.
GN: What are some of your favorite horror films? Maybe give us a top 10?
JB: Hmm I’m actually not the biggest horror movie fan but I am extremely interested by horror movies like the Exorcist, the Paranormal Activity series, the Ring and the Saw series. I guess I'm more of a gore fan.
GN: Horror photography is definitely a tough thing to do properly. What elements do you shoot for when you're doing the bloody stuff?
JB: I try to go with something that tells a story or gets people that see it to think and come up with theories about what they think it means. Also the more blood the better and great props😊
GN: Give us some links to find your future shoots and how the folks can work with you!!
JB: I always post photos on my instagram @brain_case_photo and my facebook page BrainCase. You can always contact me through email (firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook.
Tomi Terror excerpt:
Gore Noir: It looks like you had a lot of fun in your shoot with Brain Case Photography what was it like getting bloody for the shoot?
Tomi Terror: It was actually the first time I've shot all bloody and for the glass they broke mirrors and I decided to jump right in and crawl all over it so some of that was my own blood and I spent two days picking glass out of my hand it was totally worth it! Also the place I shot at was amazingly decorated with different compartments and different scenery I can't wait to shoot with him again and his lovely girlfriend they're very laid back and made me comfortable enough to BLEED.
GN: Tell the folks a bit about yourself and your modeling style, what kinds of shoots do you love doing most?
TT: I enjoy doing anything different because I want to try everything out . Personally, I enjoy very dark shoots or looking at myself dead and for the record I think I'd make an exquisite corpse.
GN: Horror is what we love and especially 80's horror.. Do you have a favorite era in horror that you like? Name some movies that you love.
TT: I wouldn't say era so I'm changing the question I ADORE Asian horror with a passion it is often used as a foundation for American horror movies and also they're very gritty and sometimes go to a dark place American horror dare not go. As a matter of fact I am quite in touch with the spirit world (not crazy) (maybe) and I figured not only was the placement perfect for my belly button a spirit board is something I pride myself on because my entire family happen to be very in touch with that side of life and also I appreciate death it makes you appreciate life as sadly we as humans have an expiration date so you should choose very wisely with what and whom you spend your time on and with.
GN: You have a Ouija board tattooed on your stomach. Have you ever tried to contact the dead on it yet?
TT: As a matter of fact I am quite in touch with the spirit world (not crazy) (maybe) and I figured not only was the placement perfect for my belly button a spirit board is something I pride myself on because my entire family happen to be very in touch with that side of life and also I appreciate death it makes you appreciate life as sadly we as humans have an expiration date so you should choose very wisely with what and whom you spend your time on and with.
GN: Any plans for more horror related ink in the future
TT: Most definitely I want to cover almost my entire body but the tattoos kind of act more as a bookmark rather than the literal meaning or picture sometimes I will throw in something that reminds me of the past but I am about to Piss off anyone that did my left sleeve because when it is done I am going to have my filler be blood spatter all over the tattoos already there and any new ones as well.
