About Me

Facebook: www.facebook.com/MikeWillinghamPhotography

I am a Fine Art photographer, specializing in artistic black and white nudes. I have been involved in art, in one form or another, for over 30 years. Working in paint, pencil, charcoal, etc., I switched my medium to photography several years ago and fell in love with the creative control it offered. I have been pursuing it ever since.

I love what I do and take great pride in my work. I hope you enjoy viewing my pieces as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

I have recently relocated to Texas (Dallas/Fort Worth area). With any move, one of the biggest efforts is establishing a new local model base. I am seeking models of any skill level (beginner, amateur, professional, etc.), who would be interested in exploring new creative ideas in this area. Models must be over 18, physically fit, with a natural beauty (I prefer to work with as little makeup as possible). I have no problems with, and in fact, welcome and encourage tattoos or piercings of any kind. Due to time constraints, I will not be able to use everyone who contacts me but I will try to reply personally to each request I receive. Modeling sessions last approximately 2 to 4 hours and will be done on a TFP/CD basis, unless otherwise arranged. A signed model release will also be required.

I am always looking to add new ideas and creativity to my portfolio, especially in the area of outdoor nudes when weather permits.   

If you are interested in modeling for a fine art nude photography session, please feel free to contact me here, or email me using the address given below. I am located in Grand Prairie, and most indoor shoots will take place here or in Arlington. The majority of the outdoor locations will be within a 4 hour radius of the metroplex. I am always looking for new locations for outdoor shoots, and models to shoot with at these locations. Escorts are always welcome.

If you want to model, but have never done nudes before, don't worry. I have a lot of experience working with first-time nude models. Rest assured, I will do everything I can to make your first time a comfortable and enjoyable experience. I have several model references available. Just ask and I will be happy to put you in touch with them. And as stated above, you are always welcome to bring a friend or escort to any shoot.

Modeling requests may be sent to me here, or to: modeling@mikewillinghamphoto.com

Thank you,

Mike Willingham

NOTICE: Anonymity - The Rules Have Changed...

For many years, I have offered anonymity to many models who have worked with me, promising not only to hide their identity by not disclosing their name, but also by not displaying any photograph that shows their face or identifiable features. But, as of late, I have been going through my archives and finding that I have literally hundreds upon hundreds of stunning and gorgeous photos that I have not been able to use, due to this arrangement.

From this point on, I will no longer do this. I will still provide anonymous shoots, but only to the extent of not releasing the name of the model. If a model's shoot generates a beautiful photograph that I wish to utilize, I will use it, whether their face or identifiable features are shown or not. I cannot continue to build a huge collection of beautiful photos that will never be seen. It defeats the purpose of doing what I do, as an artist and photographer.

Now, this does not mean that every photo will show your face, and I will continue to try to capture you in a way that reflects anonymity, but if any photos do show your face or features, be aware that there is the possibility that it will be displayed. So, if you wish to model, but wish it to be anonymous, be sure to understand that all that is guaranteed is that your name will not be released, or any links or references given to your identity.
