About me
My book of Fine Art Nudes has just came out. Please, check it out!
http://www.blurb.com/my/book/detail/2246912

Most photos that you see on my page are commissioned portraits, commercial work, or shot with my students. This pictures require a lot of planning. They are a concerted effort of several highly skilled and well-paid people. That being said, I do not always charge for my work.  In order to qualify, however, you must be the best of the best and preferably at least a little out there smile
Please contact me with serious projects only keeping in mind that shooting a bunch of headshots TFP is not a serious project.
If you want to send me a friend request, please write to me first.

Just so you know, I can be hired for an exclusive portrait sitting. By "exclusive" I mean that the result will be unique and most likely deserving to be on a display in a reputable gallery, or published in a fine art book. Please inquire for rates and terms/conditions.

Most photos on my site www.shanidze.com and here are for sale, unless otherwise noted.



BIO
I was born on October 18th 1968 and soon after found out that photography is much more interesting than watching TV, or smoking weed. After 39 years my opinion has not changed a bit.

You may find much more interesting visiting web galleries on my site. Series and new shoots usually appear there first.

I am still conflicted about what is better: sex without love, or love without sex.

Just so there are no surprises, this is me singing (all right, pretending to sing)
