About me
I have just published 2 new books, "Avatars of the Sacred Feminine" which includes 94 images from my Goddess Images and have nearly 30 women represented, mostly from those incredible models from here on Model Mayhem and "Lux et Flux", which has 68 images from my motion series. All of the images from these 2 books were taken with my mammoth  plate camera. I am working on 2 new books and am constantly looking for new women with which to photograph. So if you want to get published, please contact me and let's get to work.

I also have a portfolio of my work to be included in a new anthology out of Germany called "The Best of International Nude Photography 3". This has just come out and should be available soon.

Also an article and portfolio of my midwest landscape work (and one nude) has just been published by View Camera magazine.

A portfolio of my work has been included in the recently published 3rd volume of the Mammoth Book of New Erotic Photography, which will be distributed around the world. I am very honored to be included with some of the world's top photographers including some right here on MM.

SENDING FRIEND REQUESTS IS MY WAY IN WHICH TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THOSE VERY SPECIAL WOMEN WHO I WOULD BE HONORED TO WORK WITH. IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED A FRIEND REQUEST FROM ME AND IF MY WORK RESONATES WITH YOU AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO STEP WAY BEYOND THE ORDINARY, PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO WE CAN BEGIN TO MAKE SOME AMAZING IMAGES TOGETHER.

A little about myself:

I am a fine art photographer of over 40 years specializing in working with the human female. My work focuses primarily on portraiture, from studio work exploring the complexity of women that I find so compelling to nudes in the natural world, where the figure adds a mythological or art historical reference to the environment. It is my intention to add layers of complexity to the work that demands protracted viewing to discern the many layers of meaning and pictorial realtionships. My images are created using film exclusively and are made using traditional photographic processes in my darkroom, from platinum, cyanotype, to traditional silver prints. What sets my work apart from most other figurative work is that I work with what are considered to be giant cameras, from the more common 8 X 10 to an 18 X 22 inch mammoth plate camera from the 1890's. There is nothing to prepare anyone for the experience of working with these cameras, so unlike the mindless clicking of digital cameras. Though I have sometimes been referred to as a photographic dinosaur from my digital adversaries, the consensus is that I am a T Rex, something I can live with.

I am interested in capturing the soul and the spirit. I follow as well the old pictorialist's belief in beauty as the primary component in the making of art using these cameras. I do no commercial work, my prints are sold as fine art in galleries. My art strives for museums, not portfolios. My interest in the site comes from the hope of finding a select group of models in which to continue the many projects I am currently working on, including the Motion Series and the Goddess Images. I have a web site, patrickalt.com in which resides a large volume of work from the many series I have worked on over the years.

I am dedicated to making each photographic experience unique and enjoyable. I am a blast to work with and believe giggles and smiles are essential components to making serious art of the highest aspirations. Especially in working with the vast quantity of materials and props laying around my studio. Playing dress up has never been more fun.

Credits
I have exhibited my work throughout my career and have been represented by some of the top galleries around the country. My exhibition resume runs over 3 pages. I am included in 3 museum collections and many important private and corporate collections. I am considered one of the countries master large format photographers (no digital in my work) as well as a master in the platinum printing process.  My first published book "Unknown Tuscany" just received its first award from Arts and Design Magazine's 15th Annual Design Competition and secondly an award from the PIA. In addition to my photographic work, I am also a painter, a large format camera designer/maker, an interior/furniture designer and have taught furniture design at UCLA Extension for 20 years.


All of the images on my MM site are 18 X 22 inch gelatin silver contact prints taken with my mammoth plate camera.
