“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.”
~Henry David Thoreau
“We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies.”
“The photographs don't arouse me. All I can think about is the hard work it took to make them.”
“When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!”
“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”
“I don't mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it's based on femininity.”
“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Art or pornography. Words people use to distinguish what they Like from what they Don't.”
I am a freelance photographer who also enjoys creating artistic nudes. (And collecting quotes, evidently.). Currently working on a book.
If you work with me: I am easy going but I am meticulous about posing, angles, and above all, the lighting. I usually already have the final image envisioned in my head and I will do what it takes to create it. However, I welcome the creativity that stems from spontaneity with whom I collaborate.
