About Me

I rarely update here, see more on Instagram! @richardtallent

I'm passionate about creating art that uses the Nude in two ways--physically, to shape light and texture, and conceptually, to embody the universal truths of the dignity, imperfect beauty, and resiliency of the human spirit. I'm looking for models who feel the same way.

Black Rock City, August 🤞🔥

Underwater shooting will start up again next May. Until then, I'm working on studio work in Texas, and location shoots when I travel.

Booking a Shoot
• My work is almost exclusively in non-erotic, figurative nudes.
• I book models of all gender identities, races, ages, sizes, etc.
• I'm limited to trade (details...).
• Hosting models is sometimes possible (using our AirBnB apartment).

Bona fides: published multiple times in international art magazines (print, not digital), four solo art gallery shows, and a number of competitive art competition awards. That said, I don't seek out publication or competition, I just want to make art that is meaningful to me and the models I work with and share it with whoever groks it.

The fastest way to reach me is on Facebook.

"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
