About Me

Greetings Friends and Fans!

I’ve been capturing beautiful life moments since my first digital camera in 1999. Now with Orchard Arts Photography, I create art that captures the sacred beauty of the female form and the timeless mystery of unique locations and moments in time. I find that the more we can combine these three elements the greater the chance of creating art that transcends the visual to elevate the heart.

Let’s work:

I'd like to work with inexperienced models who don't mind learning in a collaborative style and experienced ones who can stretch me by improving my art.

Based in Portland, Oregon, I like to partner with models on projects or Patreon sets  that could lead to a published work. If you have an idea, I'd love to hear it.

I have shot a lot of first-time nude models because of my professional approach and high-quality classy images I strive to create. I'm happy to help new models get started: have a great time, learn fantastic skills and get an awesome set of photos with professional studio lighting.
Here is a quote from my one of the models in this project just after her first nude shoot:

I had a great time at the shoot and really felt comfortable and safe. I'm glad we were able to get some good shots and I look forward to seeing them. - B

Check out My Kickstarter Projects:

Fling: the Art of Losing Lingerie.  (Oct 2022) BTS shots of models tossing their lingerie during our shoot together. More than 50 models featured.

Tri-Femina: Art Nude Exploration.  (June 2021) The book features 3 of my favorite models in an expansive collection of images.

Water: Liquid Art Nudes. (Feb 2021) The book features dozens of women posing nude within a water element.

Fire: Red-head Art Nudes. (Sept 2020) The book features the natural beauty of a dozen women, all with Red Hair!

Exposure: First Time Nudes. (Feb 2020) The book is the first nude photoshoot with 10 models.

Libertine: Vintage Beauties. (Sept 2019) A photobook of retro style women posing nude in a mid-century house, teleporting you to a by-gone era of beauty. LIMITED copies available on my website.

Luminesce: Light & the Female Form. (November 2018) For those of you who missed out, you can still purchase the eBook and BTS video on my Website.

I do TFP for portfolio expansion and idea exploration.  Let partner for the benefit of both of us.
I pay models - We are all on a budget and I want to do everything I can to provide compensation to support the many lovely models who do this for a living.

I want to work as together as professionals and I am not interested in overtly erotic type material.
I have plenty of model references if you’d like to be assured of my quality, professionalism, and priority of having a great experience.

If you’re in the Portland Oregon area and are interested in working on a creative project together, contact me.
Best, Daniel
