"Sensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait, put on a face they think is one they would like to show the world. ...Very often what lies behind the facade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe."

Irving Penn, 1975.

 

 

 

 An insight into my style of fine art monochrome nude, erotica, portrait, conceptual, fine art and reportage, photography.

Black and white or subtle toning takes away the reality and adds a sort of abstract quality, the work has to exhibit rich deep blacks and pure clean whites along with a complete range of tones.

 

Erotica and nude photography takes many forms, erotica can be just as much about an expression, a gesture,

the way some one holds a glass or cigarette etc, its not just about nudity or body parts.

My style is for complete simplicity. I don't use strobes, just whatever natural or tungsten light there is.

I like to keep the posing simple and uncomplicated. In fact I don't pose my subjects,

I give them a brief to interpret then concentrate on the expression and naturalness of the pose

and allow the person to interpret the theme of the shoot their way.

Quite often working with slow shutter speeds to capture movement, allowing the person total freedom of movement.

 

I am always interested in hearing from males or females regards a photoshoot,

no payment is made, other than travel expenses but you will get a high quality printed folio of the

work on fine art paper, plus lunch and coffees etc.
