About Me

Good day. This is Carney Malone's alter ego interviewing Carney Malone.

Carney, tell us a little about yourself.

I presently reside in the circle of Hell Dante neglected to visit.

I live in a decrepit house in a boring town in the depressing Hudson Valley. I now am retired. I was a farmer, garbage man, janitor, clerk, waiter, dish washer, computer programmer, civil servant and college teacher.

Obviously I couldn't hold a job.

When and why did you start shooting nudes?

I started shooting nudes in 2010.

I wanted to irritate my neighbor. He is an Evangelical minister.

Who are your photographic influences?

A kid in high school named Louie. He had a Kodak Brownie. He took great pictures of the cheerleaders in the shower room through a hole in the wall

After Louie I'd have to say Andre Kertesz, Peter Basch, Eadweard Muybridge, Albert Arthur Allen, William Cheney Johnston, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethrope and, above all, Helmut Newton.

I like Rudolf Kartelin, Jan Saudek and Heiko Thiele among photographers still alive.

Are there any artists you like?.

Yes, I like Henry Darger, Don Martin, Bruno Schulz, Rene Magritte, Marcel Duchamp and Salvatore Dali.

Do you have a philosophy of photography?

Yes. I agree with the late Michael Crichton. He wrote "[photography is]...a shifty business for people who lack the capital to embark on a more prestigious livelihood."

Does your work have a deeper philosophical meaning?


Do you want to reveal their deeper philosophical meanings?


Does it bother you that members of the MM are critical of your work?


Do you enter gallery competitions frequently?

I rarely enter gallery competitions. I don't like the cheap white wine they serve at their receptions.

Are your photographs in private collections?

Yes. My work is on the hard drives of thousands of teenage boys.

Every photographer has favorite models. What makes a model one of Carney's favorites?

I like models who leave beer, wine or food in my refrigerator when they depart.

Do you remunerate models?

I pay for nude shoots with models that fit my style. I understand that models need to eat. However, please realize that my son and I need to eat too.

I do not pay for non-nude work or work which does not fit my style. However, in some cases, travel assistance and hosting may be available.

NB: You must present a picture ID proving that you are 18 or older and sign a model release to work with me.

Do you host models?

I have a guest room for the use of traveling models. It has a queen size bed, air conditioning and an inside chain lock for the model's security.

I have an espresso machine. I make a mean double Espresso.

If my son and l Iike you we may ask you to join us in a game of Pokemon Monopoly.

MY residence is a DOG FRIENDLY HOME. Canine companions always are welcome.

I may have an above ground pool in my backyard by next summer.

What if I fIake on Carney?

It is your loss, not mine. My son and I will have dinner at a fine restaurant and take in a movie.

Anything you would like to add?

No. Now go away and leave me alone.

And this concludes our interview with Carney Malone.

Are you deaf, stupid or both? I said "Go away." What part of "Go away" don't you understand? Is it the "Go" or the "away?"

"The look of Carney Malone's nude art portraiture is unique and so I appreciated it when he offered me the opportunity to work with him. He took the time to communicate with me extensively, which helped me prepare for our shoot. In addition to being a professional and talented photographer, he is also delightful personality to work with! His sense of humor put me at ease and definitely helped me relax into the flow of posing. I would shoot with him again without hesitation, and indeed look forward to future creative collaborations.

"Carney isn't just a photographer. He's a mythical creature and magical human being with a heart of gold and an eye to match. He's doing what he loves, and he makes it fun AND rewarding to both parties. Highly hospital and a great conversationalist. If you have a fragment of interest in literature, art, music, and Lord knows what else - Carney is your guy. He doesn't make the work feel like work and is an immediate friend. We tried to work together again whilst I was still in the area, but dates didn't work out. I will definitely attack him with a request to next time through. These words don't do justice. Go see for yourself." Read less
