Female models only that I might legitimately work with someday please. I'm not really into random friends or the social media thing. Best wishes and thanks for understanding... Kip

MY DAY JOB IS NOT PHOTOGRAPHY IT'S LIFE COACHING...
PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY ART, ART THAT INSPIRES, HEALS AND EMPOWERS

* I'M REBUILDING MY PORTFOLIO AS TIME AND RESOURCES ALLOW
The following tells you who I am as a person. It doesn't necessarily describe the theme or content of my photo shoots. My photo shoots can be exciting, playful, fun, beautiful, serene and creative... even a little rowdy... that all depends on your interests and style. Photo shoots for me, are a collaborative deviation from the Life Coaching work I do. That being said the high and lofty value I place on "The Feminine" always presides and remains in all of my work and play.
My style? Your experience collaborating with me?
Artistic modeling for me may be likened to, " 'Being' a Rose "... Have you ever walked in 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. The Universe asks that you no longer view the Rose as an object only, but to be aware of its Essence. Your 'outside' quiets and your 'inside' begins to awaken. You begin to notice the miracle and exquisite beauty in every line and curve of every petal ... in the color(s), 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 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 the Rose feeling even more beautiful, powerful and important than before we collaborated to create art together.
when I shoot with a model she will say something like, "I wasn't sure I want to shoot with you because after reading your information I thought you might be kind of too conservative or boring. After getting to know me they tell me that's NOT TRUE AT ALL!
~ My life (and twenty years of Life Coaching) is all about empowering the Feminine. Encouraging 20/30 something women to understand their beauty, value, purpose and power in a new way. ((Rebecca my wife, very best friend and Soulmate and I, have had a heart for helping women for the entire 25 years of our marriage. Rebecca DOES NOT assist or accompany me in Life Coaching or Photography. We do seminars together))
~ Good news/Bad news... for women ~
There's a beautiful, positive shift happening Universally and women are key players. In addition to that positive consideration, consider this... statistically 75% of women are (or will be) divorced or in unsatisfying relationships.
This is a time to consider being 'open' to receive a full measure of the power, beauty, joy and happiness that is your birthright as a woman. This is a time of great opportunity and promise for women. Greater responsibility too! You as a young adult woman are not only responsible for teaching and nurturing the next generation of children but, like it or not, if you want a man to love you and treat you with respect, you have to teach him how to act to deserve your love (and all the delightful benefits that go along with earning your love
) You "potentially" have all the power you need. (it doesn't happen naturally though, women have to lead this new dance. **HEAR ME PLEASE I'M NOT MAN BASHING, there are lots of good and enlightened men. As a rule though men don't have incentive to change... and believe it or not most don't know how) This new level of 'power, freedom and happiness' can only be experienced by... 'respectfully', 'tenderly', but 'courageously' understanding the areas of Spirituality and Sexuality. We are Spiritual Beings and we are Sexual Creatures. I work with energy. We've all heard that 'everything' is energy and that energy never dies it just changes form or frequency.
"Energetically" marrying the Spiritual Being with the Sexual Creature is possibly the most magical journey toward "wholeness" we can undertake. Massive Universal resources become available to you. There is nothing conservative or boring about delving into those two areas of our lives. I am not boring or conservative. I am however easily bored with mainstream, gratuitous, juvenile, rebellious attitudes and beliefs. If... you are looking for real adventure, you want to test your guts and grit... if you're looking for passion... if you would like the feeling of the stillness and the beauty of a gentle sunrise to live inside of you... if you would like to experience your sexuality with the irresistible force and flow of oceanic currents and the fiery passion of an exploding star?... If those things sound interesting to you, then you might consider having a truly intimate Soul to Soul conversation about your Sacred Energetic Essence and your mind blowing Magnificent Power. You were not created or born "ordinary". YOU ARE A ONE-OF-A-KIND MIND BLOWING MIRACLE! NO ONE HAS YOUR FINGERPRINT OR DNA! A BLOODHOUND CAN FIND YOU IN A CROWD OF A THOUSAND PEOPLE!
I GENTLY AND RESPECTFULLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO BELIEVE IN "YOU".
I work with Energy. (as I mentioned, at this time, I am not charging for my services. I've done this work for over twenty years and recently retired)
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
Isn't it curious and ironic that what most women say they want 'a man' is the thing that women say they are most suspicious and fearful of... 'men'!?
All someone has to do is mention SPIRITUALITY and/or SEXUALITY and our response is fearful, resistant, distrustful and closed. We close down, shut our eyes, and with hands over our ears and begin our internal mantra of 'la la la la la la la la la' so nothing gets in
~ BELIEFS (CONSCIOUS AND UNCONSCIOUS) ARE THOUGHTS...
~ NEGATIVE THOUGHTS ARE THE 'ENERGETIC THINGS' THAT DRAW
TO US THEIR "REALITY"
(LITERALLY PRAYING FOR THE TYPES OF PEOPLE AND CIRCUMSTANCES WE FEAR)
~ NOTICE YOUR INTERNAL RESPONSE TO THE ISSUES OF "SEXUALITY" AND "SPIRITUALITY"... AND... "MEN" AND "RELATIONSHIPS". ARE YOU DRAWING TO YOU THE VERY PEOPLE AND CIRCUMSTANCES YOU "DO NOT WANT"?
According to the "75% of women" statistic mentioned above, that's exactly what's happening. I also know this from my 20 plus years as a Life Coach working specifically with '20/30 something women'. Unfortunately relying on a great attitude, hard work and luck will almost guarantee that you will become part of that tragic 75%. The way things have been and are now does not work. HOWEVER the answers are available, living inside of you, free, easy, even pleasurable and only need to be released.
MIND BLOWING PERSONAL POWER, PERSONAL VISION, AUTHENTICITY, JOY AND FREEDOM ARE THE FREE AND ABUNDANT GIFTS AWAITING THOSE THAT DARE TO FOLLOW THEIR SACRED INNER VOICE TO WHOLENESS. THIS INNER VOICE WHISPERS IN A LANGUAGE THAT ONLY YOU CAN UNDERSTAND, IT IS YOUR INDIVIDUAL SPARK OF DIETY. 'MY WORK' IS ONLY TO ASSIST YOU IN QUIETING THE VOICES THAT ARE NOT COMING FROM WITHIN BUT SCREAMING AT YOU FROM WITHOUT TO "DO THIS" AND "BE THAT"... OTHER VOICES FROM OTHER PEOPLE THAT ARE FILLED WITH FEAR, CONFUSION, PRIVATE AGENDAS AND EGO.
YOU WERE BORN WHOLE, BEAUTIFUL, POWERFUL AND FULL OF JOY.
I INVITE YOU TO RECLAIM THE PRISTINE STATE OF YOUR "SACRED FEMININITY"
~ We are Spirit, Soul, Body. The Energy Body is the 'Soul'... the Soul is a magnificent, mystical, Sacred, exciting, sexy, powerful, fucking playground.
(If energy work sounds weird or radical, maybe give it a chance. It has nothing to do with your religious or spiritual choices or preferences. My style is 'intentional', energy based massage. It is gentle, safe respectful, relaxing and even pleasurable. It is designed to reclaim the pristine state of your energy body BEFORE all the hurt, pain, fear, guilt and shame. The beautiful, powerful way you were before abuse, abandonment, betrayal, neglect and fear based dogma wounded your sacred soul. I can tell you it works. Why would I hang myself out and sound like such a weirdo if it didn't. I don't like people judging me and being suspicious of me anymore than you do. I would be a liar to be anything or anybody but who I am. The ONLY things that truly heal and empower are TRUTH and LOVE. Isn't it sad that so many of us have been hurt by people saying they 'love' us that we now live in fear of love.
When you are with me in any capacity, 'you' are always, always, always in control. People are already hurting... I am here to serve and heal
Special interest and consideration is given if you share an interest in "massage", "energy healing", "energy medicine", "healing arts" of any kind.

I happily PAY CASH for photo shoots in an effort to support an artist's search for Self and her artistic expression. Artistic photography is an extremely important part of my personal life. Photography plays an important roll in my professional life also. My 'day job' is "Personal and Professional Development Coaching", photography is an integral part of this. In addition to PAYING CASH FOR SHOOTS, I also gladly 'offer' or trade my other 'personal and professional development' services and 'Soul expansion services'
... tfcd, tf prints as well as the many stress management, energy balancing, empowerment and energy healing practices I use in Soul, Life and Relationship Coaching and Professional Development.
~ Becoming a grounded, confident and authentic woman is probably the most powerful "beauty treatment" you can get. Nothing is sexier than self confidence... and nothing is more beautiful than a vibrant, fully alive Soul. What could possibly be more important to happiness, success and professional development than genuine self confidence and deep, authentic inner beauty? Ask me about these things if you're interested. **I DO NOT CHARGE FOR THESE THINGS SINCE I RE-RE-RE-TIRED (no... I don't stutter I just retire a lot
)**. They are available as 'added value compensation' if you choose. (btw...these services are available even if we decide 'not' to shoot together)
A GRACEFUL WOMAN:
A WOMAN THAT COMMANDS AND DEMANDS RESPECT IN A WAY THAT MAKES A MAN (or woman) FEEL HAPPY AND HONORED TO GIVE HER RESPECT
(Fill in the phrase: All men are... )
When you think of "men"... if you immediately have a long list of negative thoughts and beliefs about sex, objectification, lying, cheating, betrayal, etc. ...
(don't get me wrong, men have treated women like absolute shit for about a million years so it's pretty hard not to have negative feelings about them)
You can be part of the "shift".
Please allow yourself to believe that if you begin to understand yourself as a powerful "grace filled" woman (and make some 'necessary' energetic shifts that I'd be glad to chat with you about. Please remember I'm not selling anything...) there are good men that are looking for powerful "GRACEFUL" women.
Nothing feels better to a man than to stand tall and honor a/his woman.
That being said... like it or not, "you/women" "must" make some changes or "you/women" will continue to get what you've always got. We've all heard the definition of "crazy".
Of course you can 'force' a man to treat you with equality in society or the workplace. That is a totally different thing than trusting a man to be "all in" in a relationship.
*** my gentle opinion after decades of Life Coaching for women...
The hard ass, hard driving chick might make entertaining 'reality TV', however in 'real life', basic social graces and professional courtesies will open more of the right doors than all of the brash behavior, beauty and sex appeal combined. Don't get me wrong 'a chick's gotta have balls!' You must be able to stand your ground, speak your mind and maintain your boundaries. If the phrase 'being a graceful woman' gets your back up and makes you feel defensive, you are probably unconsciously reacting to hurt, resentment and pain from past disrespectful ways you've been treated. If you find a way to resolve those deeper issues (along with your physical beauty) you will have that rare and sought after 'inner beauty' that lasts a lifetime and a 'genuine' self confidence that will bring you unimagined success. Just sayin... Best to all
~~ about the name SACRAL PLEASURE ~~
In the Chakra System, the energy centers in our bodies, the Sacral Chakra is our powerful and Sacred 'Creative' energy center... referring to the Sacred 'Rite' of Creativity.
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 beautiful, powerful and 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 for greater Light and new Life.
Artistic photography is somewhat of an obsession. It is a powerful tool for helping women development a positive sense of Self and positive self esteem. 'Art'... including artistic photography is a powerful tool for Spiritual, emotional and physical healing. I know this from personal experience. Art inspires. Art heals.

BEFORE THINKING ABOUT WORKING WITH ME
Wondering about my studio??? I closed it, it became stale and felt confining...
Shooo!... feels good!
The number one thing I look for when working with a artist/model is an easy, free flowing, comfortable connection. It's either there or it isn't there.
Because I don't allow friends, family or escorts at a shoot I'd be more than happy to meet with you, your husband or boyfriend, or both of them...(boyfriend AND husband?) it's a joke, smile please;) 'A FEW DAYS PRIOR, IN A PUBLIC PLACE'. Since I closed my studio I typically shoot in my home in Salem. My home is also the space that I use for 'healing' and 'massage' sessions and where I do Soul and Life coaching. My home space is special and private to me. It has been 'attuned' over the past few years with intentional loving vibes and artists creativity. It is a peaceful, safe space with a private backyard. There is enough indoor natural light for photo shoots, I also have studio strobe lights, backdrops and props. I also frequently travel and shoot in a hotel. I always travel with my massage table, backdrops, props and strobes so the images don't look 'hotel-ish'.
***** DETAILS AND EXPECTATIONS *****
Nearly all of my "PAID SHOOTS" are 'fine art nudes', 'parts' and 'bodyscapes'.
I shoot 'tasteful', 'fine art' type images. I never ask for and I am not interested in an 'open leg' pose or position.
The energy of art nude has a pure honesty and a reverential powerful presence that elevates, honors and celebrates the 'mystique', 'function' and 'form' of the Feminine.
Please use your intuition when considering a shoot with me. If you don't have a sense of exhilaration and peace when you think about working with me, then the Universe may be telling you not to work with me. That message is not saying anything "about me". It's just a message "for you", honor it, in love
It is an extraordinary inspiration and honor to collaborate with an artist/model that really 'gets it' about 'fine art nude' modeling and photography.
*** My expectations when I pay you for a photo shoot are...
~ that you arrive made-up and ready to shoot. Or, if you prefer to make-up on location that's "your" time, not part of the shoot time.
Please bring 'fresh-up' make-up.
Please make sure your fingernails and toenails are done.
Please remember that tight underwear and clothing leave marks on the skin.
Hair... ???? If we are planning a shoot and we have enough time and it's all the same to you, I prefer the option of having a little color in the pubic area. Most models shave the pubic area I know... I'm just sayin... if I get to choose I usually choose a little 'hair there'. Strange conversation I know
Honest communication and clear expectations are the basis of a safe and exciting collaboration.
~ I DO NOT shoot 'implied' or 'topless' only. I shoot 'full nude art' only. If you have restrictions (other than no 'open leg' shots) we are not a comfortable fit. When I pay for a photo shoot, I am joyfully exchanging money for a collaborative artistic experience of 'unrestricted creative energy'. I can't worry that I'm causing you stress in the creative exchange of ideas and poses. I can't notice or feel that you are trying to cover or conceal any parts of your body. If you feel uncomfortable about things like stretch marks, scars, your thighs, tummy or bummy
or whatever... of course I'll honor that. If you read my information you'll clearly see how much I honor and respect YOU
I DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE AN HONORED GUEST
Say "hi"... I'd love to hear from you!
