charmed you are here.
if i send a request it's because i would like you to peruse my work
and if you like the eye, go ahead and reply
i've been shooting pictures and telling stories
since i was a kid - mom and dad were both photographers.
the picture i want to take now is one i haven't done before
after 25 years in the fashion beauty and nudes bizz here in los angeles
i've shot most of the stories i wanted - there are still a few
really good ones on my list but i'll generally prefer to pursue them
with someone i know and have worked with first - i don't test in the sense
the word is now used - i need mods that can hold up their end
and i shoot for fun and for free now... i don't pay or get paid unless it's a commercial gig all around. my aspirations are more art and bookish and it's a gas
i've noticed that many fine models here "don't do nudes", and it's true: most of the most beautiful mods i have shot "don't do nudes" - not for money anyway
(100 words?) i noticed that there are still a lot of wolves among the foxes in the hen-house - ergo Ladies, i'm not here to get laid so don't try any funny stuff
i'm a watcher - isn't that obvious..?
i moved from amsterdam to california in 76 to begin my photographic studies.
a year later i was in ansel adams' zone system class days and covering the rock scene in the bay area at night. i was on the road a lot and could set up a darkroom from out of a suitcase but rock don't pay buddy, so of course i became a photojournalist, and then into the frisco art scene in the 80's. it got really wild from there and i ended up in the Berufsverband Bildender Künstler in Berlin. when i returned to the states in 87 i began my apprenticeship shooting fashion. in the following years i went from assisting to shooting model hopefuls to starting my own website bluenudes.
then my past caught up with me and i went on a medical hiatus for 5 years.
so i returned an old man and the digital tsunami had already hit. all those things that once didn't seem possible now do. i feel like painters must have felt when the camera was invented, only i already know how to take pictures. next year bluenudes will come down and that will wrap 25 years in the bizz. i'm using the opportunity and freedom to develop themes and stories that circumstance or economic imperatives didn't allow for before. i'm going from watercolour to oil so
i'm looking for mods with experience - who have had experience in life - with a face and body that tells their story: who are comfortable with an editorial style of shooting and have an editorial sensibility: no heels in bed - i'm going for a much more natural look (elle natural, not playboy - not as simple as it sounds) more real - i will provide the surreality. if your thing is a tart then bring that - it's all a play to me - i believe there are much better ways to evoke that aura than confetti, lathered makeup and tweedle-dee outfits - i need people who are comfortable with their own nature - hostility free - and that is the cool thing: it's for fun and for free... there is no client at the end of this: my ambitions are more art and bookish. i don't pay or get paid unless everyone does. i'm in no hurry - age is not an obstacle either, or type, really, but a certain photogenic charisma is a must and you must believe you are a knockout and deliver when the time comes - i'm not developing mods and i'm no therapist
ok, this is starting to sound trite
mostly i want to see who is out there
i tend to overtalk in the beginning - it is wise to be clear in these things
