Helpful links for nude and erotic photographers

"Good art grabs your attention. Great art holds onto it."
"A competent critic doesn't merely react but responds to a piece of art."
"Erotica is the art of sex, without sex."

I am an open-minded and liberated individual with an intriguing mix of masculine and feminine characteristics. I am a practicing nudist and a sex-positive artist, with an interest in blues and rock guitar. I worship youth and femininity, and delight in taking pictures of myself when other models aren't forthcoming.

As a socially-conscious artist, I seek to confront and examine issues related to nudity, gender, and sexuality via the medium of self-portrait photography. I start by challenging the preconceived notions that nudity is private, gender is rigid, and sex is ugly, and see where that leads me.

There is much beauty and intrigue in the process of becoming, that whispers of the mystery of creation itself. It is neither strange nor uncommon for one to become transfixed by it.

A camera is a tool that can be used to either document, or present. A document is merely a record, and is only as interesting as the thing it is documenting. A presentation is a piece of art, that can make even dull things interesting to look at. But the best photographs are presentations that document something interesting.

I dedicate myself to holding erotic works up to the standards of fine art. However, I don't believe there is any utility in disparaging the chaff for the sake of the wheat. Even erotic artists have to start somewhere. And outstanding art, by definition, can only exist as an exception to the common pool of average works. Without constant reference to the banal, we'd lose our appreciation for the sublime. You see, bad art has a purpose - it makes good art even better!

you have some really great photos, do you allow your art to be used as pose reference?

to be fair you seem to put a lot of care in your work, it's inevitable really that people would notice and be inspired<3


i do have a question though before i get crazy and favorite half your gallery X''D i am a freelance artist, most of the work i do is commissioned, is it alright that some of the references i use will be for paid work? you will of course get credit and if you need it i can 100% offer compensation if you require it

Thank you for saying so. :-)

Yes, you can use the references for paid work. Credit is awesome, and as for compensation, I guess that depends on how much money we're talking about. I'm not concerned if it's not all that much, but maybe it depends on how recognizable the final product is.

Wonderful galleries; there is an otherworldly grace about your poses that is often beautifully complemented by the intensity of the gaze.

I admire your strength of character, and am eager to see what you choose to share next.

Good for you, keep up the fantastic work.
