  so my paid lj has expired, and i'm not sure how that will effect scrapbook. As such, if my pictures start going on the fritz here, that would be the reason for it, and kindly direct yourself to my site (http://www.syntheticshadows.com) for updates on content and all.

I loved working with this girl, let me tell you. we've been trying to schedule a shoot for over a year and things just kept coming up, to the point where she was 10 minutes away from my house the last time and she and her sister (also a model, but name escaping me) got into a car accident. so i'm glad she finally made it! :)

a fucking DISMAL day

from Http://www.lithiumpicnic.com:

Hi everyone,

This is Apnea with some not-so-happy news.

As a result of the ongoing pressure and financial losses incurred from defending against Sean Suhl of SuicideGirl's $100,000 lawsuit against Philip for shooting me for my site apneatic and the emotional stress and damage this has done to his business, Philip is taking the Lithium Picnic site offline until further notice.

I've taken it over for now so he can focus his time and resources on his case and raising funds. Please contact him at lithiumpicnic at gmail dot com if you have a paid project that you would like to discuss with him.

SG is now making the preposterous claims that they taught him photography and web design and they are going after the profits of my site. His SG contract very specifically defined single girl sites like mine as an exception to the competition rules but now SG claims my single girl site is a competitor to their empire of over one thousand girls, books, DVDs, radio shows, merchandise, a magazine and television syndication. Entering into litigation over this is costly and takes a lot of time, thousands of dollars a month. SG knows they can outspend him 100 times over and this is likely more about breaking him and locking him into a permanent non-compete than any truth about their claims.

His studio at 1602 Ovid Street Houston TX 77007 and much of his photography gear is for sale, if you are interested in discussing a purchase please contact him at lithiumpicnic at gmail dot com.

If you have recently sent in a model application or contacted him about a shoot please be patient it's unlikely he will be shooting or working on new projects for the next several months.

If you would like to help support his defense, here are a few links:
LP Fundraiser Prints for Sale
LP Fundraiser Shirts for Sale
Apnea's Auctions and Paypal Donation Link

Stay tuned for more links to auctions - we're auctioning off more clothing and props from our published and well known shoots as well as more photography gear very soon.

Philip still makes frequent posts and updates on his LiveJournal page. Thanks to everyone who has shown support over the years, especially those that have recently donated or supported us through these rocky times.

We know we are in the right and we won't give up or go away until we are able to live our lives freely and unmolested.



Just a quick note on the shirts--I have one and they're super comfy and really well-made. So if you've ever wanted to wear a skull and crossed-forks across your breasts/man-pecs, now is the time.
