About Me

I will be in Washington DC on the afternoon of July 31 only (working during the week afterward there). I don't have a location in mind, but I am open to a TFP shoot!

I will be gifting Deep Playa photo shoots at Burning Man 2022! Please DM with your camp name/location if interested! I lead Camp Just Ahead, we’ll be at 4:15 & Inception. Since these are _gifted_ shoots, not TFP, I’m happy to shoot any genre, and you’ll receive full-resolution files with no restrictions.

I really enjoy the process of working with creative models on new ways to express the beauty, dignity, and diversity of the human form in art.

- I can't pay models. Please contact me only if you are able and open to trade.
- My site has a LOT more work to see!
- We occasionally host traveling models (we have an AirBnB pool cottage)
- Vaccinated and boosted!

Please feel free to contact me on Twitter (@rtallentart, IG (@richardtallent), Signal (409-781-3128), or text (same).

Let's make some art!

PS - I block retouchers. Please don't tag me.

"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
