My Bio

Thanks for coming to my page.


I'm a professional photographer and digital artist and over the years have built an extensive stock and art reference file. Although many images are available on DA are free of charge, I have decided to offer my art reference images at a very small, reasonable price.


Why?


  1. This is my profession, not a hobby. I enjoy creating reference photos of models which I use in my own photography and art. Since I only use a small fraction of my own photos, I would rather have other artists use them instead of just "gathering dust" on my hard drive.

  2. Popular photos on DA are downloaded hundreds, even thousands of times - like clip art. As beautiful as many of the images are the more popular ones can be found in an endless number of artists portfolios. By comparison, my images on average are downloaded a few dozen times. This means much greater exclusivity for you, and new artwork that does not look like everyone else's.

  3. Professional documentation and licensing. Proper model releases and copyright licenses are extremely important to visual artists. Every image I post online has a copyright license and available model release.

  4. It's affordable. While typical photo agencies charge MUCH higher fees and have very limited licensing, you will find use of my art reference photos to be far less expensive and restrictive.

  5. Free 3d renders - In addition to my photographs of models that I license at very reasonable fees, I also have posted hundreds of 3d renders or people, objects and backgrounds. Unlike the photos which have minimal restrictions (no adult content, etc) the 3d renders can be treated like clip art or art reference with no restrictions. I just ask that you don't claim copyright to the original image or resell it. Naturally if you use it in your own art, you can sell and claim copyright to your new artwork.


I hope you find my art reference photos useful. If you have any questions drop me a line!

Regards, Len

Without doubt Liz Ashley is one of my favorite models.  One look at this set and you'll see why.  She's a classic beauty with a flawless figure. But it's her expressions and poses that set her apart.  I hope you enjoy using this set as much as I did creating it with Liz.  And don't forget to check out her other sets, links for which appear below. As with all my stock art reference images, your download includes a copyright license for the commercial use and sale of your new artwork. 30 jpgs, thumbnails and copyright license in one zip file.

I am excited to be doing another photo shoot with Liz Ashley tomorrow and look forward to putting up several new sets of her images. Meanwhile, here's a link to her current fantasy set, with the price cut in half. Enjoy!

By the time you see this, my friend Allysia is probably snuggling her newborn.  We waited for the last minute to do these and she loves the way they turned out.  I have several sets of Allysia online, but this is by far my favorite.  I hope you can use these for reference and look forward to seeing your artwork. As with all my art reference sets your download includes a copyright license for the commercial use and sale of your new artwork. 24 jpgs, copyright license and thumbnails in one zip file.

Hey, is there a chance for some romantic female couples? I purchased one pack and I will use it for some manips, but I'm still missing some poses. Facebook Thinking Face emoji

I rarely shoot more than one model, sorry. The poses and attitudes tend to be more friendly than romantic.

Okay, that's fine.

used your stock thanks it is a lol image
