About Me

Dave Kelley Artistics

My reason for loving photography is the art I can create. That's all I care about. That and learning new things. And teaching others what I've learned so far. This is what I do all day every day. I live it and breath it.

The art I'm interested in comes in several forms and seem to be changing as I grow.

Those I shoot with need to be very comfortable with their body. During a shoot, new ideas may come to mind, and the model should be ready to run with it. I never ask someone to go beyond their comfort levels...ever. So, I limit my shooting time to those that are comfortable with the art we may want to create. Chat with me if you have questions.

My website has a LOT of great examples of my work as well as blogs about the industry, and several pages about what I expect from a shoot. You should read at least the 'expectations' page.

I have my limits too. No porn of course...and no open legs. Please respect that. When I say I shoot for the art I actually mean that.

I'm posting new images on Facebook almost daily, so that's a good place to see what I'm up to. http://www.facebook.com/davekelleyphotography

Credit Notes

I want to thank all of the amazing models and makeup artists for sharing their time, talents, and beauty with me and my cameras. Collaboration, out of the box thinking, and talent is what creates a great portfolio.

And a special thanks goes to my loving and understanding wife of 31 years, Linda, for allowing this old man in the fall of his life to enjoy creating his art without restrictions.

Hey! Did you get my message? I’m a full time international model with 10+ years experience & I Aim on coming from CA to Phoenix around August 27th - September 3rd before going towards NM. I’d love to know if you would like to work with me while I am here or if you know anyone who might. This may be the only chance to shoot me in your area. Do you have recommendations on how else to get more work or who to reach out to? ABOUT ME; I am highly committed, passionate, reliable, open to working with artists of any level of experience & am very experienced in a wide variety of expressive poses. I’ve worked throughout AUS, NZ, UK, EU, Asia, Hawaii, & now in North America with plans to travel through other parts of the world. My many years of experience in the industry with a range of creatives from around the world have earned me features in multiple magazines, art galleries & exhibitions in a variety of countries. I’m open to modelling with other male or female models (locals or traveling) in the studio as well as on location in various conditions & throughout a broad range of styles. My extra talents; I’m a musician, I know how to free dive which is good for underwater shots, can horse ride, go on long hikes & also can crack a stock whip, I practice yoga, & have done basic pole & aerial hoop/silks. IG; @layal.official (non nudes) @aim.model (nude) @aim.backup.model1 (back up nude)
Please let me know if you are interested & have a preferred day/time to shoot along with what area you are coming from or have in mind to shoot. Please let me know if you are ok with doing a deposit or if you only pay cash on the day. If you are interested to work with me but not sure when/where/how, please let me know anyway so I know to follow up closer to my arrival. My RATES; for up to art nude $150 per hour for 2hrs or more or $550 for 4hrs or $1000 a day. This covers costs including my meals/drinks, public transportation, outfits I can bring, my own make up & other things to help me be the best I can for you. Surcharges; for 1hr only, light fetish & extra shooters. I do understand people have budgets so I can offer pay off methods where you pay the rate over an agreed time.
