"...I am not afraid of sharing what I do with my peers because its not only the technical aspects that create an image - its how your eyes and your heart see the world. A photographer is a combination of all three elemental qualities: technical, visionary and emotional. We are all made up of life experiences and therefore are all different and unique."
(Rocco Ancora, Rangefinder/March 08)
My name is Kenji and I am an art photographer. How one applies "art" photography is another story. I generally work in portraiture in all its forms. I believe that the creation of such art is not a one-sided process. It is a combination of all those involved, not just the pressing of a button. In regards to working with models, it is my hope that they are comfortable enough in themselves to, in fact be themselves, unless of course the shoot calls for something else.
[For those that are interested, I am seeking to branch out into shooting artistic nudes, so let me know if you'd like to participate.]
