I will NOT give permission for my images to be practice for retouching of any kind. This is a hard and fast rule. No exceptions.
Sorry I had to emphasize this with bold text, but people are just going ahead without asking first. Please just ask me FIRST.
I only photograph women. If you wonder why just read the quote from William Blake at the foot of my journal.
For nude shoots, I will hesitate if you are less than 21 years old.
I shoot art nudes and erotica, but other kinds of shoots are very welcome. I can only offer TF or trade.
I do Not tolerate escorts of either sex. Maybe I will if they stay outside on the sidewalk. I'm serious.
References. From you, and from me to you, especially if we are doing a trade for lodging. Message me for addresses. Trade for lodging is only a factor when offered by me. I'm not a hotel.
I prefer a lot of communication. I find it helps immensely if we know each other. If we're complete strangers when we shoot it simply doesn't result in the sort of photos I'm looking to make.
I'm not interested in working with anyone who hasn't really looked at my work, and isn't excited to make art together. I want them not to be shy about revealing their body and soul and not afraid to push their own boundaries. This is why I love working with artists, dancers, photographers, actresses, etc. They are always pushing their edges. They make some of the best nude models.
I had a callback for head shots from an actress I met the other day, so I decided to revamp my non nude website www.davidlebeck.com/ It's still a work in progress design wise. Content is mostly new. Let me know what you think!
A note on Stock
I'm always flattered when someone wishes to use any of my art for a project of theirs. It's exciting and humbling. I want to encourage it. If I can inspire as I've been inspired, that's wonderful. However! I do encourage anyone to use them for reference, composite use etc., but with my permission.
Unless you want to make something degrading or just ugly for the sake of ugliness I will say Yes!
