My Bio

"Swiss photographer Dan Fehr, better known by the moniker,

Artofdan, has earned himself a legion of fans over recent years.

His nudes on display at websites such as METART, PENTHOUSE,

PLAYBOYPLUS, MAXIM, MICHELLE7 and many more struck an

immediate chord and with viewers, given their vibrant energy,

superb clarity, and spectacular lighting - not to mention,

the extraordinarily beautiful, youthful models he works with.


But he is one of those rare talents that creates art with their cameras.

His images are more than simples nudes of a pretty girl,

they are moments-in-time captured and imbued with an incredible

sense of eros, drama, and fantastic artistry. His range showcases color

and black & white; his locations are indoors, outdoors,

and in the studio; and his message runs the gamut from simple

portraits-of-beauty to powerful, guttural sexuality.


This is an amazing body of work!


One can only marvel at what the next five years will bring from this artist."


A Review by Joaquín del Castello Gilbert, Editor of Michelle7




ABOUT:


At the age of 14, I got my first analog camera as a gift.

It was the beginning of the enthusiasm for photography.

Through my architectural training and the associated freehand drawing

I discovered the art of nude drawing and painting.

This passion accompanied me for many years.


Just over 15 years ago, I bought my first digital SLR camera.

For a long time I had the desire to portray female beauty in the field

of photography as well.


My first shoot was done with a model in June 2007 in the area

of an old factory. From the beginning I was enthusiastic about

the possibilities opened up for me by this kind of art.


I was fortunate that I was able to make contact with

very good models at an early age.

May I say that I was allowed to work with some of the best models!

Through them I was allowed to learn a lot and could gain

a lot of experience.


I pass on my passion as a form of art, of nude and erotic art,

though many see it differently. All my work has been done only with

the available light, something that I am very proud of.


My first photographic success came in 2009,

when I was allowed to publish a cover and the picture gallery

for the Penthouse Magazine. Since then a lot has happened

and as in real life, everything is connected with ups and downs.

When I look back today I am very proud of many things -

the numerous competition successes, the work with Metart,

various book and calendar projects, the numerous pictures

which I show here on Deviantart and of course,

the contacts to the great people.


I would also like to thank all of you here in Deviantart,

who appreciate my work, look at it and write something about it.

Many thanks also to all who have bought pictures from me and I hope

that they have the same importance to you as the work for me!


Thank you.


Dan




VISION:


It is my vision to generate an image world of timeless value

and i want to express feelings and emotions in my pictures.

sensuality, passion, thoughtfulness, desire and erotic

are only a few examples which represent my work.


i realize my ideas on several outdoor spots

but also in my 200sqm studio which is located in an old factory.


my photographic areas are mainly artistic nude, nude art,

erotic, lingerie, beauty and portrait.
