FAQ

Q.: I have braces so I can’t smile
A.: Smiles are awesome.. no matter what! While I understand that braces can be uncomfortable.. natural, wide beaming smiles are amazing no matter what! I’ve worked with several people- old and young- that have had braces and they have all~ without exception~ looked incredible when they shone their pearly whites to the camera. We’ll take it as it comes.. work together.. and I’m certain you’ll have awesome photos!

Q.: I dont want to show my face
A.: While I can understand wanting to maintain anonymity, I do prefer to work with individuals who aren’t afraid to be recognized. One or a handful of images in that style is acceptable but to publish an entire book with heavy use of any one style or theory is taxing to the reader~ as exemplified by this review of the Richard Murrian book  Reanna’s Diaryreferring to the photographic style: “The soft focus wore on me after a while – there was scarcely a crisp, clean line anywhere in the collection. Romantic vision has a place, but the strength and agility of the figures was never allowed to come through. The orange cast, possibly suggesting firelit warmth, was decidedly overused.” while this isn’t talking to avoidance of the face it does speak to over- use of one concept within the book environment..

Q.: I’m the wrong age to model nude.
A.: No Way! Fine Art Modeling has no age limits or restrictions.  The Human Body~ in all it’s various forms, stages, and styles~ has been the subject of artistic creation for centuries. Celebrating your unique beauty is the basic concept and as such, the artwork won’t be composed with ‘Prurient Interests“Prurient Interests” are defined as “lascivious or lustful thoughts, desires, etc.// causing lasciviousness or lust.” And my work has long been decried as being “Too Artistic” and, thus, lacking in prurient elements which most websites rely on for sales.‘ in mind.  Jock Sturgesspopularized for his work with naturist models of many various age ranges. His work is Large Format and superlative. A true inspiration to mine own goals., is an internationally recognized fine art photographer (whom I look up to immensely) who works with a wide lattitude of ages.. his work spans decades in, both, productivity and subject chronology. As well, look to Richard MurrianRose to popularity at the dawn of the digital era for his book “Reanna’s Diary” featuring fashion models Reanna Mae and Jen Hilton whom he photographed at 14 and 15 yrs of age and the volume is still a sought- after collection of sensual nudes. and David HamiltonLooked upon often as the “grandfather” of soft- focus modeling. His work with still photography and cinematic productions is still, to this day, envied by many and collected by far more. both prolific and celebrated artists who worked with unique individuals. Personally,  I don’t see “age” as a barrier at all since my goal is to celebrate the beauty of the human form.. in all it’s stages and with all it’s “flaws.”
