About Me

I painted the model dancing in the background as the Haitian flag.





How Did I get Started With Body Painting?
As an engineer by trade, I've spent most of my life's energy developing my technical skills (left brain stuff). I took up body painting as a way to develop my artistic side (right brain stuff). It seemed to fit right in with my photography as well. I also recently rekindled my interest in playing guitar. It's sort of a personal renaissance!

What is Body Painting, you ask?
Most people's first exposure to body painting has been the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues in February 2008 and 2009 that featured supermodels in painted bikinis. It is actually a very old art and tribal ritual that goes back thousands of years. It was also revived by Playboy magazine in the 1960s.
Body painting is an exciting type of painting, melded with photography, in a very fun way! I start with a nude model, add paint until she looks clothed (or like an animal, or an abstract art piece), then take pictures of her enjoying her new outfit or identity.
I'm  constantly amazed to find how much models love this activity! Every model I've painted has enjoyed the experience very much, and most have said something equivalent to "I had a blast!". Some I've painted more than once (some 4 or even 5 times!).

I won't lie to you; If you're shy about being nude, body painting might not be for you. But, many models who will not pose nude, jump at the chance to be painted, because it's a unique opportunity to participate in artistic creation. You need to put aside your modesty for the chance to become an amazing and fun piece of living art. Once you're painted, you actually won't look or feel nude!

With regular photographic modeling, you become part of a piece of art. With body painting, you become the art!

I usually try to have the model give me some input on what type of design she'd like painted on her, since it will become her job to bring it to life for the camera, once I've completed it.

Ladies, if you've been wanting to try this exciting form of artistic expression, I encourage you to contact me.
As one of my models told me:
"It's an experience I'll remember fondly all my life!"
Others have said similar things.
