I work with the figure in natural light only. I want to capture the body's grace, fluidity, and subtle nuance of skin tone as it relates to sunlight alone. I also use my figurative photography as working reference for fine art watercolor and oil painting images. The human body is capable of movement into such amazing form and gesture. Photography is an apt medium to capture this.
I'd like to use this site as a forum to discuss this kind of work with other photographers and to find models to collaborate and work with as well. I've been a professional artist for 15 years and have been working with photography for much of that time. My goal is always to continue improving in skill and composition.
Please write if you are a model interested in this kind of work for your portfolio. I'd be happy to discuss ideas for projects.
Added January,2012: I'm currently attending graduate school and have limited time for shooting. Therefore I don't check this site as often. I apologize in advance if it takes a bit longer for me to respond to messages. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
