About Me

Lets all enjoy the fun and creativity of photography! I have heard my style described as edgy. I take this to mean bordering art, erotic and glamour, hopefully being neither one nor the other :-) A picture paints a thousand words and I guess that is why we are all here :-)

I shoot what i like to see, and hope others appreciate the same things. I don't shoot what others might like, mostly because I cannot read other peoples minds and trying to anticipate the attitudes of others is I feel guaranteed to ensure a misfire. Like any other person I have my preferences, and make no excuses for this. The art of communication lies in using words (pictures) effectively - but with so much misunderstanding going around what does all this mean?

There is an art to the glamour nude style separating it from 'fine art', showing sensuality and femininity, displaying women neither as unemotional inanimate statues, nor as sex-objects, rather portraying women who once in the mood like to feel attractive, sexy, and appreciated. Stern austere faces have no place here, rather friendly and warm.

Art-Nude - The nude human form is part of an image intended to convey a deeper meaning and the viewer is invited to determine this.
Fine Art - expressing the aesthetic qualities of the nude form
Glamour - attractive subject depiction in an arousing yet non-pornographic manor.
Pornography - depictions of sexual subject matter.
Soft-Core - pornography without explicit depictions of sexual acts.
Balancing across such definitions is the daily tightrope we all walk!

LEVELS are understood differently by everyone, this is how I see them -
Implied Nude - nude yet concealing nipples and genitalia from view
Art-Nude - visible breasts, as much intimate zone visible as when standing upright.
Playboy - slightly more revealing than art-nude; may be described as shy OL- using poise, shadow or soft focus obscuring genitalia from 'clear' view.
OL - Open-Leg - legs east-west with a clear view of the intimate zone.
OL-Oyster - sexually promiscuous raised leg OL reclining, more explicit, and can only be described as soft-porn. No examples of this Level will be found on my port.

The printed form of Playboy reflects the generally accepted standard of nudity in contemporary society. Several major corporations advertise with them, meaning should they reveal more anatomy than tolerable in general circulation they would loose substantial revenues. This level may be observed to progress over the preceding decades, with little indication that the direction of liberalisation will subside in the coming years.

I have deliberately delayed discussion of Erotic photography to say that I have no prescription in this regard. To one person anything nude is erotic, to another all nude photography is pornographic, and for some erotic automatically means explicit or OL photography. MM lists Erotic under Genre without giving guidance as to its meaning in this context, so neither shall I.

There have been less than pleasant experiences with some models, so at the commencement of a shoot time will be taken for a Release/Restriction Form to be signed, witnessed, and photo ID taken. These days due to the paedophilic scare age verification for nude shoots is absolutely necessary even for grandmothers, or the shoot cannot proceed and no payment given!  Please understand this is for the protection of all concerned.

Photographers - friendships, comments, tips welcome
                          open to relate model experiences upon request
Models - I do not seek free shoots, please state your rates.
So far 8 models have been hosted.
Re-touchers - THANKS, BUT NO THANKS!

Up to now I have had no problem with models requesting they bring an escort to a shoot for their own safety (so far this has only happened three times). However recently i have heard of too many instances where this has resulted in the photographer being mugged by the models escort. Any model requesting they bring an escort will not be denied (advance notification of such is of course required), but must in turn accept that a security person of my own will be also be present within close proximity for the duration of the shoot.

"It was fun working with DeanR. At first, I was not sure about the Cleopatra theme as I thought it would be too trivial. However, Dean proved me to be it the other way around. And now it might be the most erotic pictures we did, comparing with other sets. I also really loved the make-up artist he invited to realize his Egyptian Goddesses' Idea. I can't wait for our next photo shooting journey! *And yes I love his edgy energy :)" Read less
