The central theme of this photo set was the idea of “a powerful mistress caught in a moment of weakness” The only source of light I used was a continuous stage flood I keep for video productions. My oh-so-popular wide lens was the only option as the room we took these pictures in is extremely tiny. It was an empty cellar room with ugly walls and low ceiling which means it served the purpose really well.
The Mistress set portrays emotions of an otherwise powerful mistress, who was caught in a moment of weakness. She wants to be seen as a powerful woman who’s got firm control over herself and others, it’s just a facade hiding the weakening soul.
Ivana did an excellent job posing and balancing on the stool in high heels. My ex did a fantastic job handling the flood and the diffuser. Feel the touch of emotion with The Mistress in distress.
I believe “nude art meets fetish photography” would be a good enough description of this gallery. The dagger which you can see in some of the pictures came from my collection of medieval weaponry I am a big fan of. While daggers are not that typical of BDSM, I think it added a nice touch to the theme.
I did these Fine Art Nudes with MJ who is a marathon runner so she’s super fit with body that’s well toned and firm. Body like that is a treat to light up for fine art photography. I used my heavy duty black muslin for dark background and two strobes to light the model up.
Fine art nude photography puts more focus on artistic appeal so posing, lighting and composition are more important than erotic value of each image. MJ made my job in achieving it easy and I believe it shows in the gallery:
I shot with Ivana many a time but even the most prolific photographer/model relationship starts with the first time photoshoot during which you kind of get to know each other. Pictures in this gallery are from the very first time me and Ivana worked together.
The sole fact that we ended up shooting many more times in the future is a testament to how well we clicked. I found Ivana to be a very open and enthusiastic model which makes my job easier and that reflects well throughout the pictures.
We held this shoot on one of the first warm days of the Spring. The snow had just melted but weather was still unpredictable with frequent drops in temperature so we were glad to see the sun come out and keep us warm whole day. It allowed us to keep the model naked without freezing her numb.
Ivana brought her leather jacket along so we used it for pictures along with her g-string, fishnets, garter belt and high heels. No digital skin smoothing has been done in post-production. What you see in these pictures, as with all my pictures is what you would get if you were there.
The photos were taken by the museum in Vegreville, Alberta. There was a building with main highway right behind it, but it was Saturday, the museum was closed and nobody was around so we were able to go topless without anyone snooping around. No artificial lighting was used in this photo sessions, however I tagged a gold reflector along to help with shadow softening as sun was rather harsh.
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:
Guitar Hero photoset was shot in a graveyard way out in the bush, far from any signs of civilization so I was able to do these outdoor nudes without anyone snooping around or otherwise disturbing the set.
The idea for the nude Guitar Hero came from the fact that Ivana, one of the models, plays bass in a band. Combining a hot naked chick with a bass guitar and a graveyard seemed like a pretty solid bet so we went for it. Wanda, the other girl, liked the idea as well and joined us for the pictures.
Sun was scorching hot, mosquitoes were going nuts, but we drove for about an hour anyway and got right down to shooting. Even though there was nobody around, we respected the graveyard for what it was and left it the same way we found it, always asking for permission to use the grave before actually using it. It was a very spiritual experience and this is the outcome:
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.
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.
