Let me start by saying, if I request a shoot with you, it's not for nude unless you're okay with that. Implied nude only works fine with me, just tell me your parameters.
Having said that, all photographs are strictly used for fine art purposes whether in digital or traditional art. This is for models that may consider showing more skin for fine art. The images you see are a combination of different photos to create one piece of digital art. That turns into the reference I use for my paintings. Since my work is contemporary realism the transition is very natural. I'm hoping to meet models that will inspire my creativity in new and fascinating directions.
While many artists now do their paintings with a Wacom board, I still do it the old fashioned way, oil paints on wood panel. This is why I'm very selective with whom I work with. It's a painstakingly slow process and I love every minute of it. So if I call on you to model, please take it as a huge compliment. :-)
I think I'm fun to work. My goal is to make the shoot fun for you. So if you're smiling, I've done my job.
I've been in fine art for many years before MM. So if you want to work with me, but aren't 100%, ask me for references. There are some on my port.
My port shows implied and nudes, but I learn more and more towards implied. Silk adds to the figure and it's fun to paint. Any nudity should be organic, not gratuitous. My images will inevitably be implied. You can only take so many photos with the silk completely covering your body and i wouldn't want to. If you're on the fence, ask me what the shoot will involve before you turn it down a modeling job, that is for a painting. Is there anything more flattering to a model, than an artist who takes weeks out of his/her life to create a piece of art with you.? :-)
IMPORTANT: The photo-shoot starts when I start clicking. The time it takes to get to the spot does not count. Some outdoors locations are not available on the GPS and take a bit of walking. Thanks for understanding.
Please feel free to drop a tag or comment on any digital image you like, especially if you want to friend me. This will help me decide which image to paint next. It would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I'm always updating my port with new art, so check back to see the new work. Thanks again.

A beautifully written message from a model requesting a shoot with me
You have absolutely stunning work! It's wonderful to see an artist employ such unique techniques while paying homage to what is, in my opinion, the most fascinating depiction of a woman's form (Greek sculpture). You're awesome, keep up the good work, and in the meantime, if you're looking for a model to collaborate with, I'd definitely be interested.
