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).
Personal Quote: "If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you"


Hey guys, sorry about the sporadic posting; I've been crazy busy.  I still have quite a few shoots to process and post, so stay tuned.

Goodbye Tumblr, Hello

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 17, 2018, 12:40 PM

I never left deviantART; in fact I post every Mon-Fri (mostly) on here as I have for the past FOURTEEN years!  In fact, more of my work can be seen here on dA than anywhere else on the web.
I *was* using Tumblr to host while I tried to relaunch my original website after Chinese hackers overran it, but it actually worked quite well in the interim so I just kept it.
Today is Tumblrgeddon, though, and my site will no longer be allowed there.  So I'm working with a new web guy and we should have a brand new site for to peruse by the new year.  In the mean time, though, as per usual, all my digital downloads, print sales and more can all be accessed through your free deviantART account.  So, cheers to that.
- Richard
