"With so much pain and suffering and disappointment in the world... with so much bigotry and poverty and disease in the world... with all the crime, corruption and injustice in the world... I am happy to photograph Beauty and to work in Her name. It reminds me that there is so much more Beauty to Life. There are days when I feel that to shine a light upon Beauty and to perhaps capture the essence of the light within... this is the very least that I can do. And when there are days when I feel that this is All I can do... I take solace in the belief that "truth is beauty and beauty is truth." We are here and it is now. And Life--although fleeting--can be so very beautiful. More than this... it is simply not mine to know." -JULIAN.

21.) The inside of Paris's fold-out Comp Card. Yeah.... Waaaaay Cool. Her entire card was shot in 2 photo sessions. My point? If you pick the right photographers, you won't be one of those girls who shoots for years without getting the kind of shots needed to produce a successful card.

45.) Rates are available on my official Wesite: www.wildevision.com.
46.) It's not unusual for a model who's new to the business to say:" I've never paid for a photographer before." And after looking at their pictures, I WANT to say "Honey, that's obvious." But I bite my tongue. And to this day I've never said it. ;-)
47.)Did I mention that all Out-of-Town models who book us for a Full Day are invited to spend the night at the Studio? We call it "Special Model Hosting." Bed and nightcap included. ;-)
48.) Commercial advertising for the Elegance Series speaker line by Echelon Audio Systems.

56.) We call it our "beach house"... but it's not REALLY a "beach house." If you'd like to shoot at the House, which quite often involves the pool, the beach and lots of sun...check with Raven for info and availaibility. Hey wait! Is that Anghelika and a new copy of "WildeBeauty" on the coffee table!??
57.) "Life Under an Amber Moon." Just in case you've been wondering what I've been up to lately at WildeVision Studios...allow me to unviel "Ancient Rome." My Dad would say "Rome wasn't built in a day." In this case, it took 5 days. Goddesses may apply at WildeVision Studios.
"Art is the noble but ultimately doomed effort to make sense of a mystery that is essentially and thankfully beyond our understanding." -from JULIAN's Blog.
58.) Fave Wilde model Kodi Sawyer gets washed ashore for a foldout page in "WildeBeauty, Rated W." 2012 Collector's Edition.
59.) Fave Model Kenzie Smith and my friend Stewart relax in the Gallery at WildeVision Studio. For "NightVision, Rated W." 2013.

For an additional $600, full muah/styling and wardrobing is provided.

"Julian Wilde's photography continues to amaze; beautiful women, gorgeous settings and stunning results." David Weber, Professional Photographer, Boston.
64.) THERE ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS... who offer TFP and there are photographers who say "message me for my rates." I'm not one of those guys. I'm the guy who tells you what he charges. And that's what I charge. Straight up. No sliding rates. No hidden fees. No funny business. ;-)
65.) And for out-of-town models, 2 Day shoots are not uncommon, if not the rule. There's that much here to play with!
66.) The Cardinal of St. Serrano in "The Final Absolution of Athena." Photographed for my book "The Dream Oracle."
Got a minute? Catch up with us on my Official Site and Blog at www.WildeVision.com Or for my line of cards, framed fine art and works on canvas--visit my site on the Totally Amazing www.redbubble.com This is where I post The Really Fun Stuff and a lot of my writing. Just enter: Julian Wilde. And Thx!
67.) To see what we're doing with our Fashion/Fantasy/Fine Art Books, check out my official site: www.wildevision.com.
68.) SOME RELEVANT WORDS/PHRASES: theatrical, erotic, surreal, dark beauty, mysterious, passionate, creative, transcendent, dangerous, elegant, mythical, timeless, heart-felt, exquisite, cinematic, modern classic, evocative, powerful, luxurious, enchantment, visionary, movie-quality, dreamlike and of course for different reasons: Galliano and Chocolate!
69.) "TF SHOOTS:" Now... it's not entirely correct when I say I "don't TF." The fact is, I never TF on the first shoot. After you've paid "the admission price," and I've seen that our chemistry is good and you are indeed an amazing model... A TF shoot is not entirely out of the question.
70.) Playboy model Jennifer McCall gets washed ashore in the Collector's Edition of "WildeBeauty, Rated W."
71.) "Bedtime Story" with traveling models Jessie June, Jaylynne and Jason for "WildeBlue." 2012
72.) "Cabaret Blue," by Arizona beauty Shantia. Featured in "WildeBeauty, Rated W," 2012. "Rated W," means "The Even More Fun Version." [winks]
73.) Rocker and French Beauty Annelise, photographed in the Gallery and styled by Raven Wilde for WildeBeauty. 2012.
74.) The Golden One... Kenzie Smith for "WildeBeauty."
I'm often referred to as a "Fashion Photographer" by well-meaning individuals, but the fact is I really couldn't be less interested in Fashion, or what's coming down the runway this very instant in Paris. But I do love Style and I do love Beauty. And those are two things that just never go out of fashion.
75.) Fave Wilde Model and Russian phenom Anzhelika, AKA "The Body," photographed in the Grand Salon for the Collector's Edition of "WildeBeauty," 2011.
76.) From "WildeBeauty," a commissioned portrait of Russian lovely Natalie Solokova, and "Miss America" Katie Harmon for the cover of her opera-inspired CD "Soul of Love."
77.) Young fashion and beauty model Courtney Bryant at 14, in her first test with WildeStudio, styled by Raven for WildeStyle. Yeah...14.
78.) Moderator Gone Wilde. ;-)
79.) And in case you're wondering "Why so many horizontal images?" Our coffee table/art books are all 11 x 14 horizontal formats. There ya go!
80.) Lanna whispers to Stephanie in "The Blue Hour" for "WildeBlue, Rated W." Photographed in the Labyrinth at WildeHome. Featured on Red Bubble.com
81.) I'll often advise models, if you want to control the parameters of your shooting experience, write in your port: "If you see it in my port, there's a good chance I do it. If you don't see it, there's a very good chance that I Don't." In my case that's equally true. So... What you see is What you get.
82.) Wilde Beauty Dani Elizabeth is photographed at my last Editorial Fashion Workshop. To be included in my book "NightVision."
83.) Like most photographers on this site, I get the daily messages that amount to "Let's Shoot!" And I luv hearing that. But unfortunately I can't shoot everyone who wants to shoot. First of all there's the financial situation: because I charge between a grand and 2 grand to shoot, the models I work with are generally well-financed. If you don't have the financial thing together, I'm just not going to be able to help you. Secondly, and this is the hard part: you may be a devastatingly beautiful girl, but if you're not "the look" that I'm looking for right now, for the projects I'm working on right now... I'm not going to be able to use you and I will pass. Very tactfully. It doesn't mean you aren't Everything your bff says you are. It just means I can't use you right now. And I'm incredibly selective. It's not personal. It's just business.
"I've seen many talented Fashion Photographers, but Julian's work goes beyond beauty and fashion. There is such mystery, passion, artistry and mood with all his work. The way he sees and connects with his models goes beyond the surface. His work actually allows us to feel, to experience and to know his models." Jacleen, Fashion Photographer. Excerpted from the Foreword to "WildeBeauty."
84.) Just outside the Salon at WildeStudio and in from Chicago, Jordan is styled by Raven in a test for "WildeBlue, Rated W."
85.) Some of the most beautiful women in the world are featured in "WildeBeauty, Rated W." Including 14 year old Madeline and Playboy model Jessie Shannon.
"I believe that everyone has their own song to sing--the unique and ineffable song of their soul. And I feel so fortunate that thru photography and with all the wonderful and talented people I have been blessed to play with--I am singing mine." -JULIAN
MAGAZINE PUBLISHED. GALLERY EXHIBITED. CORPORATE CLIENTELE. AGENCY ENDORSED. MOM APPROVED. (O.K. well, maybe not that last part!) :-)
86.) I don't know how to say this delicately, so I'll just say it: if you haven't shot with a pro before, or it LOOKS like you haven't shot with a pro before... the chances of you shooting with me are somewhere between nil and zero. I suppose what this means... is that I have a real tendency to work with models who are willing to invest in their careers. And if you're the type of "model" who takes pics of themselves in the mirror with their cellphone... Oh, I don't even want to say it. ;-) And I do not shoot TFP. No exceptions whatsoever. Unless your name starts with the letter K. -JULIAN
87.) California Beauty Staci Hart, lounging for "WildeBlue." FYI, my book "WildeBlue," has stuff you won't see on Facebook. ;-)
Oh yeah! ONE OTHER THING: I just recently started Blogging, "The Wilde Side of Fashion, Photography & Fine Art," on my Official Photography Site: www.wildevision.com. Drop on by, leave a comment or a question, or just say Hi!
88.) Fave Wilde Model Jessi June, styled by Team Wilde for our book "Provocateur."
89.) Fave Russian Model and Wilde Beauty Ilona Alaniya works the Full Moon at WildeVision. In an original desgin by Stylist/Designer Raven Wilde.
"Commenting about any of Julian Wilde's work feels about the same as popping into The Louvre in Paris and scribbling a quick comment on the Mona Lisa. Mere words feel so inadequate for work such as his. Wilde is one of the Great Masters of our art and sets a standard which we all hope to aspire to." John Farrar, Award Winning, Professional Photographer, England, MM # 680246
91.) The Beautiful Madeleine Moore flew in to shoot with us for our books "WildeBeauty" and "NightVision."
92.) Although it's not something we do throughout the year, Selective Model Testing--either for our own projects or for agencies-- generally ranges from $300 to $1200, depending on length of session and number of sets and images. Professional MUAH and wardrobe is always part of our sets. "Inquire within."
"Julian Wilde's style and the exotic eloquence of his style is intoxicating. I never get tired of it!" -Jessica Lark, Photographer.
93.) I only accept "Friend Requests" if I think it's possible that we may shoot together at some point. Or, if I'm just feeling warm and fuzzy. Thanks!
94.) "The SheaMobile," Featured on The RedBubble and in our book "The Fine Art of Dreaming."
95.) "Emmanuelle in the Garden," from my fine art coffee table book "The Fine Art of Dreaming."
96.) Check out our new video "It Was a Wilde, Wilde, Wilde Year!" on our official site www.WildeVision.com. Very Best Wishes! -JULIAN
97.) Swim wear model Staci Hart wears LA Designer Jeremiah Hill for "StarBaby!"
98.) Before we walk too far "down the Garden Path," let me be up front about a couple of things. I do the caliber of work that I do because I work with a high caliber team of mua's, stylists and wardrobe artists. When you're working with me, you're working with them. They are Professionals and they are Always Paid. No exceptions. They do Not "collaborate." Generally speaking my muah's come in at 125 plus and wardrobe is 75 to 150. Some things are negotiable. THIS is what's called: "a deal-breaker." I could go on and on as to the reasons, but the fact is: if you can't handle this, I can't help you.
99.) And the other thing: All Models sign a Model's Release before I ever pick up a camera. Now... let's all have some fun!! -JULIAN
"I have no interest whatsoever in capturing people as they really are. I glady leave that to Portrait Photographers." Real "portraits" bore the living hell outta me. But I am utterly fascinated by portraying my subjects most convincingly in a way that they are not." -Julian Wilde
100.) "A Lady & Her Hat," an award-winning image on RedBubble.com, with touring model and Philly Knockout Jaylynn Mitchell.
"There is a unique and special dynamic between a model and a photographer. When someone as easy-going, creative and talented as you, makes a model feel so comfortable, and beautiful as you do--it shows in the pictures. I so enjoyed working with you! Keep bringing your visions and dreams to light." XOXO Victoria. Awww, Victoria... you make ME melt!
101.) Wilde Beauty Brandi Mitchell working her magic on WildeBeach...
102.) The front cover of "WildeBeauty." This 100 page, hard cover, Collector's Edition is printed on high gloss paper and available thru our official site.
103.) You may have noticed that I like my girls looking like they're from the planet Earth. I'm not a big fan of abusing Photoshop or plastic-looking faces. If you wanna look like a rubber-skinned Android with a brushed aluminum body... there are photogs and "photo shop wizards" who love to do that. I'm just not one of them.
104.) I joined MM about 6 years ago to network internationally with other photogs, stylists and models concerning a few projects I'm self-producing. . As you peruse my port you'll see some of my personal work and photography books/DVD's represented. "Entourage," The Fine Art of Dreaming," "NightVision," and "WildeBeauty" have wrapped or are scheduled to wrap very soon now.
105.) If you see a project that looks interesting and you believe you have something special to contribute, msg me and let's talk. This kind of work can sometimes be done on a TF basis with me. But once again, mua and wardrobe is always additional.
106.) Friends... Kodi and Laudan stretch out on the Corbusier... for "NightVision."
"Julian Wilde's incredible imagery, his visual decadence, his whimsical touches balanced by depth and richness--all brings fantasy and art to the world. His work is the Platinum Standard." -Craig Allen, Commercial Photographer, MM # 649.
"Julian Wilde's photography is incredible and stuning... it leaves me breathless!" -John Hough, Photographer, West Hollywood, CA.
O.K. I admit it: I'm a hardcore Architectural Junkie! The Perfect Shoot? French Vogue meets Architectural Digest! Everybody wins! ;-)
"Wilde's work is a unique brand of high-style glam. Elegant, Sexy, Hot and Flawless!" Camerosity, St. Loius, MI.
"A heady and sumptuous mix of fashion, high-end glamour and beautifully styled drama. Our James Bond could have lived in [his] photographs. Great respect for outstanding work. " Roger Mann, Photographer/Designer, U.K. MM # 719711 Thanks Roger. No slouch yourself! ;-) -Julian
"As an artist and more importantly as a human being... I am not here to judge anyone. I am here to appreciate. And I do fully appreciate the beauty, the energy and the wonderful talents I work with to the very height of my abilities." -Julian James Wilde, From "WildeBeauty"
107.) The incomparable and very dear Dora Miller... caught in a daydream at WildeVision Studio's Rome. "Thank you Sweetie!"
108.) Once again, virtually everything you see in this port were photographed in either my Super Studio in The Pearl of downtown Portland or my home on the Columbia River. Simply put, the studio is a full private floor, with simply unlimited opportunities for shooting and creating. Having said that, I actually enjoy shooting at our House, especially during the summer. Consequently, I very rarely leave town for work. ;-)
109.) Lady Stephanie demonstrates considerable skill as a jockey while negotiating her prized philly through the Labyrinth in our backyard.
110.) One other thing, I usually don't add "friends" unless I feel something friendly. Feel free to tag or comment first. Warm fuzzys welcomed. And if it looks like your more into porn than photography--I'll pass. Thanks!
111.) If perchance, you are 20 minutes late for an interview or a shoot--and you do not call--I will consider the appt canceled. No hard feelings.
But the chances of getting a second appt under these circumstances are somewhere between nil and void.
"We are human only in the the sense that we play. For we touch the divine and we are our most human when we play for no reason." -Julian Wilde
112.) Regarding the use of Professional Retouchers.... this feels like paying someone to make love to my wife. First of all, I see it as My responsibility and secondly and probably most importantly... quite frankly, I enjoy it. ;-)
113.) So much for "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!" Photographed in WildeVision's "Vegas!" for my new book "WildeBlue, Rated W." 2013.
"Thank you so much Julian Wilde. You are an amazing person that will accomplish everything you desire because of your talent, creativity and your commitment as well. I really don't know what to say other than Thank You from the bottom of my heart. Julian, you are a star in the night shining on everything and everyone. Thank you so much!" -Jennifer McCall, MM #521345 (Jenn, you are so welcome! And more than I can say. -JULIAN)
114.) Outside of us all being a little subjective about our work...our Portfolios are really the "hard facts."
A general rule of thumb regarding paid shoots: the one with the better portfolio is in a better position to charge for services.
Now... that may not sound like the perfect world, but is a position that can be justified by a reasonably sane person.
There are exceptions of course, and as we all know: it's the exceptions that make the world go round!
115.)The beautiful Laudan and the inside of her Beautiful Card... All shot by us.
116.) I get asked a lot "Am I experienced enough to shoot with you?" I'm really not at all concerned whether you've shot with 500 photographers or this is your first shoot. The only thing that concerns me is what I feel you are capable of in My studio. That's it.
Not to worry about my pet Peacock. "Handsome Bob" is always happy to model, and although he is "the cock of the walk," he is really quite harmless!
118.) The above, is a little something I saw sitting around my studio the other day. And they say I only photograph Beautiful Women!!!
119.) Oh, and my ESCORT POLICY: If I don't like their energy, I may at any point, ask them not so politely--to leave. If I do like their energy--well, that's different, and that happens all the time too!
120.) I generally don't solicit commercial work. To do so, would be an outright concession that my time is worth more working for Them and hooked up to their plow, than it is working for Myself. And THAT... I rarely believe. -JULIAN
121.) "Bad photographs don't lie. Great ones do." -JULIAN
122.) Breathe deep. And Smile. It's a Beautiful Day!
A.) As for Acknowledgments, I feel privileged to tip my hat to Photographers Helmut Newton, Francesco Scavullo, Irving Penn, Guy Bourdin, Skrebneski, Richard Avedon, Gilles Bensimon and Herb Ritts among others. We all stand on the shoulders of giants.
B.) Beyond that, I owe everything to Raven--my angel, the love and the light of my life. Without her support, inspiration and love, I wouldn't be able to accomplish a fraction of what I've done over the last 10 years. My success would not only have been diminished--but there would be no joy in it for me. "Raven, you are, and have always been The One."[/b]
C.) "Being a photographer is something like being born a songbird or a zebra. It's not something you try to be. It's something you are. And even though you strive to become better with each day you are given, you cannot change that essential part of yourself. No more than a songbird may forget to sing or a zebra can change it's stripes." -Julian James Wilde
"Julian Wilde's work is absolutely stunning. Not only is he one of the most amazing photographers, but his "eye" and sense of style really captures a look and creates a moment."[/i]
Tim Peirson, Cast of Thousands Studio, MM#795387
