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 and travel frequently to Chicago and New York and occasionally to the West. 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.
