About me
If all you tag me with is "Thanks for the pic comment," I'll probably delete your tag. I'll leave it to you to figure out why. :)

I'm not trying to be "famous"... I can't help that.
It has no bearing on what I do or what I love.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I know we'll get some great images if you can open yourself up and allow it. High-maintenance, uptight divas need-not apply... if you're not sure if that's you, just read your own profile and it should become self-evident - lol. It's nice to have confidence and a positive self-image, but having to tell people that you're "perfect" and "beautiful" is a bit conceited, and actually raises some doubt.

I hope you like what I've gotten with the great models I've shot with, thus far. The list is growing by leaps and bounds with every month! :)

Euphoria: A state of intense happiness, well-being, and self-confidence.

Ethereal: Light, Airy, or Tenuous. An ethereal world created through the poetic imagination.

Hence the name: Euphoreal

I also like the moments of "Real Euphoria" that beautiful images and the process of making them can bring.

Welcome to my page.

Euphoreal?

Yes I am.

(It's actually pronounced: you-FOR-real... not YOU-fer-REAL?)
There's no country OR ghetto in it. Thanks! :)

If you want to pose for artistic nudes, I'm here to help!
I'm very giving in that way! ;)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

About my Work: I love shooting nudes in places that you don't normally expect to see nudes, and I try to shoot them as creatively as I can. I pride my nude photos for their tasteful, non-sexual excitement. Is there a touch of sexiness? Well, it's nearly impossible to deny a certain amount of sexiness inherent with a beautiful nude form. I'm not trying to erase that instinctive, involuntary quality, but upon viewing my portfolio, I expect - and hope - that people will be more inclined to smile with wide eyes than feel compelled to reach between their legs. I'm not shooting porn. Even my open-leg work can hardly be classified as "erotic" by any stretch of the imagination. No, my work is about art and beauty, sometimes with a touch of humor.

I do have a sarcastic sense of humor, but I also take my art - and yours - very seriously. I'm essentially a landscape photographer (aren't we all) stuck in a large city in the middle of flatland, America, seeking primary "subject matter" (that would be you) in the form of nude and semi-nude models (again, you... it's always all about you - lol). We WILL have fun - that's an order! - and I'm confident we'll get something that's better than "nice." I like things that are spontaneous and unexpected, so plan on doing some walking and exploring with me through the urban jungle! You won't get a detailed script of how our shoot will go... because I don't have one, and the way I shoot, I can't. The photo is merely the end result of the art we create on location. I see art and have visions almost everywhere I turn.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

One thought that inspires me - even more than any themes or ideas I have listed below - is thinking of how many amazing models there are within about a 3-hour span of Chicago - and to think that by the end of any given day, even today, tomorrow, or this weekend, we could create something incredible that never existed before. That thought in itself is very profound to me. It's all sitting right there, all we have to do is seize the day. If this is what you do... if this is what WE do... then why aren't we doing it? It's just a half-a-day away.

CONTINUING THEMES I'M INTERESTED IN SHOOTING
See if these spark any creative feedback from you:

- Urban Nudes (My forte! Quick, easy, SAFE. I have connections. You'll love it!)
- On the Road (shot on a country road near you - very popular series)
- The Crafty Beaver (another very popular series)
- Daring Derrières! (beautiful beehinds in public)
- Under the Bridge (and sometimes on top)
- Into the Tunnel (several locations)
- "Noudoir" (Nude Boudoir) and...
- Nude Noir (Nude Film Noir)
- The Pussification of America (open to your artistic and patriotic input)
- Tied Tight (50 Shades of Grey themes)
- Umbrellas in Public! (French Impressionist style)
- The UnCut (political statement, very explicit - not at all erotic)
- Staged Voyeurism (or Planned Peep Show)

- Anonymous Shoots: I've been getting a lot of requests from models who love nude art and want to shoot anonymously; either to test the waters of shooting erotica or to safeguard their professional identity. I have experience with that (lawyers, account executives, one radio personality, medical and secretarial professionals, etc), it does bring some additional challenges to a shoot (but even more so to cropping and editing), and I'm definitely willing to work with you in that capacity.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Escorts: Most (nearly all) are usually fine with me, and even encouraged for models who don't know the photographer. I honestly don't care who's at a shoot as long as they contribute to the process instead of hinder it. Escort availability, or the lack thereof, definitely constitute a hindrance to the process. Please be mindful of that in your selection of escorts. Thanks.

My Major Pet Peeve:
People who don't properly credit others for the work they've achieved. We don't live in a vacuum, and unless you're doing self-portraits (Lady Hawk's are great!), it takes at least TWO people to produce an artistic photograph. To me, a sign of TRUE greatness are the superstars who continually shower OTHERS with credit when the public is trying to heap it on THEM. Conversely, I think it's a measure of how truly small you are when you try to hoard all the credit for yourself. If I see models who don't credit their photographers, I won't shoot with them... and when I see photographers who don't credit models, I recommend that models look elsewhere (like here! lol), OR that they expressly make photo credits a part of their shooting agreement.

Check out my credits section below.
Also, ALL MM models are linked under their photos inside my portfolio.

THANK YOU!

Credits
Please don't use your credits as weapons of leverage to get your way; or worse, to put someone down. Just stop power-tripping over what you've done, alright? (geez, and I thought the male ego was bad). It's nice that you've done some beautiful and exciting things... in the past. I have, too... but they are in the past. They are not predictors of how things will go, nor are they guarantors of what will happen in the future. That's why I keep shooting and trying new things.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

My credits are a way of acknowledging my thanks and expressing my gratitude for the wonderful people who've helped me. They've earned their place in my work and in my heart, and they deserve to be mentioned here.

Vassanta - MM# 209943
Can we talk about the consummate professional?? There really is no substitute for experience! I've crowned her "Queen of the Sexy Face!" In 10 clicks of your shutter, you will get 5 incredible photos! One half-day session with Vassanta will give you a full winter's worth of photos to edit (and keep you warm - lol)! Striking an amazing variety poses and sizzling expressions with no direction, this voluptuous beauty will risk setting your camera on fire from the speed of the shutter release!

Maeballine - MM# 3371937
One of the most amazing first shoots I've ever been on! We clicked and hit our stride right from the very start! Had to boost her confidence and expand her comfort zone for the project we were working on, but she followed through with style and grace! Looking forward to more incredible sessions! :)

Malgorzata Argasinsks - MM# 3168152
Sheer magic just to meet her! Even more wonderful to create beautiful art with her! How many photographers can say they have the approval of the model's mother to shoot artistic nudes? Shooting with Gosia, I never felt more blessed and complimented in all my life! What a lovely experience.

Model Vavra - MM# 3227138
Such amazing talent, ease, and grace in front of the camera! Especially at the young age of 23! Nothing but high quality art with this girl!! Do yourselves a huge favor people! Be a gentleman and hire this gorgeous model for your portfolio! You will not regret it!

Mila - MM# 3010174
Mila is a beautiful free-spirit who will keep you smiling the entire shoot! Not to mention getting you some of the most uniquely beautiful images you've ever shot! I asked her to pose in some places she'd never posed before, and after a little convincing, she shined like the star that she is! :) [we'll never forget the creepy dude who tried to follow us, though! Uchchh! Gross!]

Collete Stone - MM# 2376794
As is often the case with public nudes, we had a little trouble finding the right place! But once we found a cool spot on a sidewalk under the "L," she turned-on her charms and took off her clothes and we scored some very exciting shots! What a riot! I love it when models have more fun with my art than I do! :)

Cameo Michelle - MM# 1875179
She moves like no one else in front of a camera! What more can I say about a model who has become a close friend, is a one-of-a-kind beauty, and is a never-ending student of her craft? She lives and epitomizes art! Your camera was made for her!... and she can cook, too! :)

Anna Hodges - MM# 1800952
A long time friend! Anna and I have been shooting together over 10 years! We just shot again and it surprised us to realize that! 10 years and we've only gotten better! And laughed about where we were and what we were trying to do 10 years ago! haha! She is the one who convinced me how beautiful anonymous nude art can be! Her sheer elegance and eye for beauty have always been top notch!

D E V I - MM# 2686156
Artistic, personable, creative, engaging... a tremendous model to collaborate with! "Devi: She is the female counterpart without whom the male aspect, which represents consciousness and discrimination (that's definitely me), remains impotent and void."

Natalee Hawthorne - MM# 1706273
My longest and dearest friend on MM. I wish more of you would work with her! If you like a glam look, you're all missing the boat! She has the passion you're looking for! But I'm more than happy to let you overlook her and keep her as my own creative secret! :)

St Merrique - MM# 772043
Probably the greatest single hour of photography I have EVER experienced! The Zen of Art! No time to think! No time to overdo anything. We put our abilities together and lightning struck!

Kristy Ann - MM# 632357
OMG! The epitome of art, beauty, talent, always a positive attitude!... and just undeniably S E X Y ! :)

PetulaV - MM# 779165
You will NEVER meet a nicer, sexier, friendlier more talented model! Amazing in front of a lens! She also introduced me to the most unforgettable model I've ever worked with!... and we couldn't speak a word to each other! I felt like I was shooting someone historically famous the whole time. It's a feeling I live for at every shoot. I have to get back to Bohemia!

Christie Gabriel - MM# 489446
Ideas abound! If you haven't shot with her, your camera hasn't achieved its full potential!

ISM - MM# 1820135
Two of the most electrifying shoots I've ever been on! Buzzing for HOURS after each one! So much fun and felt true fulfillment as a photographer!

Liz Ashley - MM# 26159
Experienced, adaptable, grace and beauty in any and every situation! Her artistic wonder is far greater than my words can describe! Talent as big as Texas!

Jess Robinson - MM# 539418
She is the perfect mix of incredible beauty, great sense of humor, definitely smart, and guaranteed FUN! You don't need me to tell you how amazing she is! I gotta get back to the Longhorn state!

Modella-Nudes - MM# 2354504
Such incredible beauty and form! A great artistic mindset! Perfect proportions for a model! Enthusiastic and wonderful to talk to between shots! :)

Brianne Blu - MM# 2647335
Just Wow! Bri and I have created some... check that... LOTS of amazing art together! She is incredible to shoot with. Got me my first POTD 18+ winner, too!

Violetta Storms - MM# 109547
If you want the shot, Violetta will get it!... and keep you laughing the whole time! Amazing body and amazing fun! :)

Rain Model - MM# 2236581
An artist in her own rite with strong ideas and her own unique style! :)

Mizz Amanda Marie - MM# 1289955
Beautiful look, easy to talk to, and just look at her portfolio! Her creativity speaks for itself and her fantastic photos say more than my words ever could!

Chantelle Marie - MM# 2876436
We had time, we got together, kind of impromptu, and we had a fantastic shoot, almost effortlessly! The way I love to shoot!

Deja Mone - MM# 2594334
Lovely artistic look and eager to help you get your shot!... and it WILL be great!

Traci Matthews - MM# 2426439
Very kind and beautiful. Knows her own direction!

Thank you... to ALL of the above!
