Brooke was a love at first sight. I noticed her when I was shooting a gig of my friend’s band. After the concert, Brooke went to shake hands with said friend so I asked who she was. She hooked us up, we scheduled the shoot and this is the result.
Brooke was definitely a pleasure to work with. She’s both a great model and a fun person to hang around. Shortly before the shoot, Brooke shaved her hair and donated it to a cancer patient. When I first saw her at that concert, she still had her original hair with dreads, but she parted with a few days later for a good cause.
All pictures were taken in my studio against black background with two strobes. Brooke showed up with razor blade claiming that she was unsure if I wanted her pubes shaved. I explained to her that I shoot natural women and do not alter their appearance. I want my models to be themselves, the way they would be if they were not scheduled for the photoshoot that day. Brooke wears no make up in any of the pictures. This gallery depicts as natural a woman as they get.
This is Nicky. We met on the day these pictures were taken. She wore these really awesome Harley Davidson boots which literally begged to be photographed on a naked chick.
The office chair you see in pictures is the very same one I’m sitting on right now. It’s my computer desk chair I use when I work on my computer.
What made the shoot most memorable was that it was the first time I worked with a model who was taller than me. At 5’11” I may not the tallest guy around, but it’s a decent height to have most woman tilt their head upwards to look me in the eyes. Up to this point, every single model I had worked with was significantly shorter than me. Not anymore.
So there you have it – the tallest model on my site photographed nude with just Harley boots on. I used black muslin backdrop and two strobes to light up these fine art nudes. For some pictures, I only triggered one:
There is no particular reason why I named this set of picture Tsunami – it was just the first thing that popped into my mind. MJ who modelled for this set has a well toned, firm body. A body like that is a joy to photograph with artistic studio lighting, which I did later on, but we first did some warm up pictures which you can see in this gallery. I used two studio strobes without diffusers for lighting.
Bed Time Story photo set was taken in my apartment late at night with Brooke. Set of sensual nude photos worked out well, in spite of the fact that Brooke is not reading a bed time story, but is studying for school. I asked her a lot about Acadians because that’s what she was reading about and I’ve only heard of them from the movie Scorpion King.
I put a white multilayer sheet I occasionally use for a backdrop on the bed and had one studio light in the room which I flashed directly at the wall opposite of the bed. So all light comes from this one strobe, but it is evenly distributed and soft due to bounce. The bed you see in these pictures is the same I sleep on every night.
Exclusive Backstage Pass is a set of pictures I took of my nude models taking a break during the photoshoot. These are not staged in any way and are pretty much just snapshots. In my studio I have a chesterfield area which is available to models to use during breaks and sometimes when they do, my camera continues snapping.
Girls will always be girls so the backstage area gets pretty messy with all the make-up stuff and other items of frequent use but I’m not without sin either. I have bags of lenses, a bunch of cables and other essentials each photo backstage area is full of and you can see it all in this photo set.
It goes without saying that nude models are content with their own bodies and see nakedness as nothing to be ashamed of. As a result, they don’t see a reason to cover up between the shoots and this gallery is the document of it all:
Ivana with whom I shot before brought her friend Wanda along to join us for the photoshoot. Wanda has never ever before posed nude and intention was not to anyway. We took few erotic high heels pics with sexy stockings and then the idea came to mind and girls both went nude to model for some of my most memorable and most appreciated images. The Puzzle piece gained high recognition throughout nude photography community and is loved in every corner of the world.
They say human creativity is at its peak late at night – and this just proves it. These pictures were taken long after midnight and thanks to nicely shaped curves of Ivana and Wanda, I was able to set up and capture this not big in size, but in value, set of photos. Single Elinchrome studio strobe was used for lighting against black muslin background.
MJ did this photoshoot with so much ease you would never tell she was a first time nude model. She arrived all smiley, happy and ready to rock and roll. And rock and roll she did.
Her body is a combination of fabulous musculature and sensual curves an appreciator of tight physiques could die for. Add to it her beaming smile and you have one sexy beast.
Casual nude photography photo shoots are really cool. It’s when you forget that the camera and lights are there and just have fun without clothes. It adds new perspective to the art of nude photography as a whole. It’s not art, but it’s pleasing for the finest of senses. It’s pretty – it’s casual nude photography.
