About Me

I'll be visiting and shooting around Knoxville, TN between June 20-27. Underwater shoots will start in Texas in July.

Hi! My artwork is primarily non-erotic figurative art nudes, with a focus on work to be exhibited in gallery settings. I'm also experimenting with use of virtual and augmented reality in fine art, and I do some mixed-media work.

I don't use MM must except when I'm traveling, but I do check my DMs, so please feel free to reach out here (or via Facebook or Instagram (@richardtallent) if you'd like to collaborate.

A few other quick notes:
• I'm limited to trade.
• I can occasionally host traveling models (using our AirBnB).
• I work with models of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, gender expressions, etc.
• Please visit my web site to so a LOT more of my work.
• I love working in unusual environments! Abandoned buildings, underwater, the Black Rock desert during Burning Man... if you have access to a great location, I'm probably up for it.

"Inspiring. Gave super detailed instructions for what he wanted, but we also shot some of what I wanted. It is so rare a photographer actually listens to my input, and this meant the world to me! We got a shot I have been trying to get for a very long time, and the entire experience was just lovely. I can't recommend Richard enough!" Read less
