My Bio
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 Amazon.com 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 info@uniquenudes.com.

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).

Just as I have all new content to post, someone hacked my account and I was locked out for over a week! Fortunately, the staff at dA was able to get me back in with minimal fuss. New work awaits!

Just a warning to fellow photographers. This guy in my post here is following many of us and stealing pics to repost as his. I don't have time to cross check all your stuff against his so you may want to browse his gallery for your work before you block him to prevent theft. I've had to DMCA him myself and he was following me. Please let others know if you recognize any of their works.


I would like to practice some figure drawing from some of your photos if you allow me

beautiful collection

You have a beautiful collection of pictures! Great models too Have a nice day :)
