More Of My Work Here
I do use a home studio.. I'm sorry I don't have thousands of dollars to put towards a more "professional" studio... If you have concerns.. 95% of my portfolio were shot in home studio.
What's to be Expected?
Important! Please understand, I don't care if you are a guy or girl, there is nothing you have that I have not seen, or even care, I'm an artist trying to make the best project I can, if you are not comfortable being nude in front of a male, than body paint is not for you!
Most of the time I like to meet the person before a shoot so that I know who I am dealing with and what project would fit best for who I am painting. Sometimes this is not possible, and that is understandable.
Body Painting takes about 1-3 hours to do, depending on what is done. This is not a 10 min make up job and we call it good... Yes, it's definitely a patience thing.
It's recommended, not required, to shave, because the paint can definitely pull body hair, but then, if you don't mind this feeling, it shouldn't be a problem.
I'm sorry, I don't paint over underwear, the lines and shadows it creates is sorta distracting from the art. I might be alone in my opinion, however, I like smooth surfaces not a sudden String over the hip or strap over the back.
Though, when using my studio at home, Bring someone along if you would like for the paint... I cannot speak for photographers for the actual shoot.
Travel From Salt Lake up to Idaho Falls and anywhere in between every 2 to 3 months.

*Guy and Girl in a Shirt and Tie. (Both Sexes)
*Would love to do a "quilt" if you will.. this would be a long body paint, but way cool
*Would love to do a "Day Glo/Dark Light Shoot" Would be more Tribal like Vs Look Like anything... but it could be cool looking.
*Full body landscape-using the one leg as a grassy hill the other as a sky type, and move up the body with various scapes mountains valleys.... I really would like to do this with two models so that one could be laying down and the other behind on their side and I could get a bigger canvas this way. but one could do as well.
*About 4 or 5 models lined up side by side, more of just an upper body (Except the two end models which would be Stone Statues)... and Paint a Rainbow across each model.
*Ideas you have are welcome and maybe considered.. It never hurts to ask.
