About Me

I shoot photographs of models, actors, athletes, artists, misfits, rebels, survivors, and other interesting people. I am always looking for photo subjects or inspiration. I am based in Indianapolis IN (weekends) and Chicago, IL (weekdays) My work receives international attention. Please contact me if you are interested in collaborating on any projects.

I have two websites you can look at:
Scott Barnes Photography (Headshots, portraits, fashion)
Vir Impudicus (Male Fine Art, Nudes)

I like to learn. Exploration of reason, experimentation with method, and expansion of mind are all important to my work. If you have questions about me, I’m an open book. I am open to discussing most any project so please feel free to contact me.

A note about nudes: I shoot the male nude form because it irritates me that thousands of years after the Greeks were carving nude statues of Apollo and Perseus, today a male nude is quickly dismissed as pornographic. I believe that the human body is beautiful and I'd like to play a part in changing that stereotype. Also note that I don't ask or expect everyone who poses for me to do nudes. To make that assumption is disrespectful and inaccurate. I realize that posing nude is not for everybody, and your comfort levels will always be respected.
