I post new images every 4 to 24 hours depending on my backlog, so as not to flood your inboxes. Optimally it's one photo per day unless I've been working a lot (and then it's only 4 or 5 over a 24 hour period; never 30 or 40.)


The Art of Richard Rasner
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
My name is Richard Rasner and I am both a professional art photographer as well as an accomplished photojournalist, although art is my main job and source of income. My fine art work is currently shown in museums and art galleries worldwide and I also tour the U.S. quite frequently on book signing tours and photo safaris.
Before the economy woes forced its closure I also toured the music festival circuit with Mojo Republik Magazine (a division of Universal Records) as their lead staff photographer, shooting bands such as Billy Idol, NIN, Panic! At The Disco and many more. I have also shot for KCXX Radio and my own magazine (Nakayama Studios Magazine) doing the same thing.

My first nude photography book "Whispers of the Mind" was a best-seller on in 2006 and there are numerous documentary films about my work. I am quite friendly and approachable, so if you have any questions, ask! You can find me at my book signings and gallery shows of my work, as well as at my photography workshops which are taught through the Erotic Heritage Museum's "Education Outreach" program as well as at my own studio. I have curated art shows at The Apparatus, Box Office and AMP Galleries and I have also worked for Laura Henkel Fine Art as an *actual* gallery director, in the real brick and mortar art world.

I currently reside in Southern California very near Los Angeles, which is where my main studio (Nakayama Studios Riverside) is located. I also have studios from Beijing to Alaska, and plans to open 4 more in the next few years. Note me if you would like more information.

With a name like "Unique Nudes" I am constantly looking for new models and ideas, so if you're in Southern California or Southern Nevada and you want to help me create art, please contact me at

Nakayama Studios LLC is headquartered in Southern California, with studios in Riverside CA (Unique Nudes) Anchorage AK (Cold Mountain) Ephrata PA (Nakayama East) & Beijing China (JJR).

Beauty from the dark
More work from Danse Pointe.  I am quite a bit behind in posting, so I'm going to start putting out 2 or more images a day until I'm closer to being caught up.

11 Years a deviant!

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 3, 2015, 10:52 PM

It's been 11 years today that I have been a deviant artist here on deviantART.  From my very early beginnings to where I am now, I am humbled and grateful for all the support from all of you here.  There have been plenty of haters, liars, and detractors (as there is with any "popular" person on any large community), but most of you guys have been AWESOME.  I love your positive comments, your insightful feedback, or just being added to your great art collections.

I have great dA memories too... several "Daily Deviation" awards; meeting angelo at the ver 5.5 beta test (and seeing him around for many years after at devMeets); helping launch the groups platform with the NakayamaStudios supergroup & art collective; seeing my prints and calendars sell; artists from all over the world supporting my charity events and getting involved in the community...  it's been super-amazing.

9,005 watchers!!  Holy crap!  And over 1.5 MILLION page views.  I dont' think I'll ever get used to that.  But in any case, I once again wanted to thank all of you for watching my page and supporting my work.

Have a great Holiday Season!
-- Richard
