About Me

I am in the process of creating an "art statues" project - "humans imitating art". I am taking famous Greek and Roman Mythology and creating "human statues" based on these Myths. The male and female are completely covered in white makeup / white eye brow and white eyelash makeup or gold makeup. I use eye safe and skin safe makeup - (washes off with soap and water). I have been working with male and females as well as group settings.   

"The ultimate derivation of fine in fine art comes from the philosophy of Aristotle, who proposed four causes or explanations of a thing. The final cause of a thing is the purpose for its existence, and the term fine art is derived from this notion. If the final cause of an artwork is simply the artwork itself, "art for art's sake", and not a means to another end, then that artwork could appropriately be called fine. The closely related concept of beauty is classically defined as "that which when seen, pleases". Pleasure is the final cause of beauty and thus is not a means to another end, but an end in itself."

I started doing boudoir / special request artistic nudes back in the 70's.  Most of my clients were highly educated and either turning 30 or 40 or wanted something special to give to a special someone.  I think with age, experience and a realization of the society changes (like the internet), women have more capabilities to experiment and express themselves.

I do ask people if they like the art statue project I am currently working.  Women who would never pose nude want to be part of art and still have their identity hid and have assisted in creating a nude piece of art.  Many women and men have their pictures hanging in their halls, bedrooms, living room for their friends to seen but not recognized

Last, when a young model asks me if she should do nudes, I say – if you do nudes, it is like a tattoo, it is there for all to see. I don't encourage or discourage women to pose nude.

I am an "Art Addict," when you look inside my portfolio, you will see I am paying homage to the great and iconic sculptures, painters, and photographers from years past - If you have an idea or something you would like to try, feel free to contact me and lets discuss. 

I still occasionally will do TFCDs to assist selective models helping them with their modeling portfolios.  I shot catalog work in the late 70's and early 80's. I am more interested in working with models who are artistic and creative with high energy.  I have no problem with escorts and will put them to work.  I have a numer of MUA and assistant photographers I work with during my shoots.

I have a digital camera that has been modified to be an infrared (IR) only camera (Canon 10D)  IR images produces a natural ethereal effect.  I use a Canon 6D and 7D for my statue shoots.   

I have provided my human statue technique to a number of photographers, MUAs and models.  I use eye safe and skin safe makeup - (washes off with soap and water).   Human Statue shoot last about an hour from makeup application, photo session, and shower to wash the makeup away.

I also do body castings - great gifts for that special someone.  If you want to create art - contact me and let's shoot and work together.  I will Accept paid commissions for you to own the rights and have only copies of the art you want to create.
