My passion is making beautiful and interesting images of women, and body painting has become a fascinating outlet for that passion. I love the element of surprise when the viewer realizes the model is only wearing paint.
Painting clothes on the model and then photographing her in a public place is great fun and sometimes requires commando raid style of shooting. We go in, get the shot, and exit before anyone's the wiser. Great adventure!
I am open to other styles of body painting and would like to collaborate with any female models who would like to expand the boundaries of this fascinating genre. Variety is the spice of life. Contact me with your ideas and let's create art! I use professional grease paints and latex paints made specifically for body painting.
I am a gentleman and treat all my models with respect. Here are testimonials from some of the models I have worked with:
"I had such a great day with you Ken! You are a wonderful friend and photographer, and it's always a grand adventure when we work together. I never would have imagined I would be body-painted and naked on the UW campus when I was going to school there, but now there is photographic proof that the administrative building isn't just for serious business... Sometimes naked girls wander the halls." ~Audi (AwwD, MM #1268675)
"I had a great time shooting with you! You are efficient, yet extremely creative! I love all the different genres that we fit into just one day of shooting!!! I had fun the whole time, and felt very comfortable. It is safe to say that I will be back up in Seattle the second that you want to shoot again!!!

"Had a blast working with you the other day. Can't wait to see everything we created. i know we got some great shots. Im def recommending you to other girls and can't wait until we work together again, we should set a date

"Thank you so much for a fun shoot last night! I enjoyed meeting you in person and getting to know you. You made me feel comfortable and safe while you painted and photographed me because you are a perfect gentleman and completely professional. I was thrilled with the results. Not only do you have great ideas, but you also have lots of natural artistic talent because you pay attention to the details in order to make the body paint look so realistic.
