So many great photos, so little space.

Photographer Lisa Predko shot our April cover story, “Who Makes What,” in early February. There was snow on the ground, frozen nosehairs in our nostrils, and bitterness in our hearts. Winter seems like like a distant memory now, but we feel we must share these photos with you.

Check out our behind-the-scenes look at the photoshoot for Miss Maya Sinstress, a fetish diva whom we interviewed for the salaries article. She brought with her several latex costumes, various fierce whips, and a bottle of lube (you’ll see why in the photos).

After the shoot, Brittney’s wheels got stuck behind a mound of snow, and I got out to push the car—to no avail, of course. Thank goodness for spring.
