Photo shoots for me, are a creative deviation from the Life Coaching work I do. The high and lofty value I place on "The Feminine" always presides and remains in all of my work and play.
Beautiful words written by Ruth Bernhard, famous photographer.
"My photographic images search for dimensions that words cannot touch. I have chosen the female form in particular. It is because beauty (of woman) has been debased and exploited. I wish to raise, to elevate, to endorse with timeless reverence the image of woman, this has been my mission. Images of the Human form that clearly transcend the boundaries between the Spirit and the flesh."
About my style?
I agree completely with the "mission" and beautiful words of Ruth Bernhard.
Almost all of my photo shoots are tasteful fine art full nude. I will never create an image that negatively (in my opinion) objectifies a woman.
You will probably be a mom someday. I want you to be able to say to your daughter when she's 16 years old, "This is a photograph of me a few years ago loving life and creating art... honoring and celebrating my femininity and my body. I hope you are able honor and celebrate your femininity and your body too".
I do not shoot open leg poses. That being said when I pay an artist/model for photo shoot it is 'full nude' not 'implied nude'. Full unrestricted creative, collaborative freedom is what I look for.
Much like a 'figure model' for an art class but a whole lot more fun and with creative collaboration from the model.
The number one thing I look for in a model/artist is her complete comfort as a nude model/artist. The number two thing is that she and I are comfortable and "easy" together.
I am deeply involved in the healing arts. I love life. I love people. I love my wife
For over 25 years ( www.sacralpleasure.com ) I've helped 20/30 something women discover 'who they are'... 'how to find personal peace, purpose and passion' and 'how to find and keep the man of their dreams'. To CELEBRATE "LOVE", "LIFE" AND "RELATIONSHIPS". If you like that stuff you'll probably like me. If talking about that stuff makes your skin crawl, we're probably not a great fit
My shoots are ... Safe... Creative... Respectful... Relaxed and Fun...
About your experience collaborating with me?
~The Soul of a Rose ~
Artistic modeling for me may be likened to, " Being a Rose ". Have you ever walked through a garden and been stopped by the mystique and beauty of a Rose? The longer you view the Rose the more you are drawn to it for a closer look. As you look closer the Universe asks that you no longer view the Rose as an object only, but to become aware of its Essence. Your 'outside' quiets as your 'inside' begins to awaken. You begin to notice the miracle and the exquisite beauty in every line and curve of every petal... in the color(s), the leaves and thorns... in the strength of the stem. A kind of awe and reverence presides as the Rose delights in expressing the Art of its Soul and the beauty of its Being.
Being in 'reverence and awe' to the Essence of the Rose... this is my Art. I'm always searching for "Roses". My 'Arts desire' is to leave every Rose feeling even more beautiful, powerful and valuable than before we collaborated to create art together.
Special interest and consideration is given if you share an interest in "the healing arts"...
"energy healing", "energy medicine", "massage" etc...
Women are Beings of Light, Intuitive Wisdom, fierce determination and indescribable beauty. The energy of The Feminine elevates, inspires and expands. "Life"... literally and metaphorically comes through the Feminine... what could possibly be more inspirational than that!
I am here looking for artists that model. Modeling is an artform in itself. I am not looking for models only.
My artistic inspiration is in the 'power', 'mystique', 'function' and 'form' of The Feminine. Artistic nude, especially pregnant nude is the purest and most powerful inspiration I know.
WOMAN... is the vessel that the Universe has chosen as the conduit through which greater Light flows and through which all Life passes.
Artistic photography for me is somewhat of an obsession. It came to me unexpectedly some years ago during a healing massage session. It can be a powerful tool for the development a positive sense of Self and self esteem. 'Art'... including artistic photography is a powerful tool for Spiritual, emotional and physical healing. I know this from personal experience.
I know that Art inspires. I know that Art heals.
Tapping into Creativity brings Light to the Soul.
Creativity is generative on a cellular level.
DURING A PHOTO SHOOT I DO EVERYTHING IN MY
POWER TO HELP YOU FEEL LIKE AN HONORED GUEST
