I have been a photographer for over 20 years working with both film and digital images. These days I do my editing in Photoshop CS5. My subject matter varies from landscapes and architecture to portraits. Most of my early work was in black and white but I have been working with color for a few years. I work with both digital and film. I look for light, shadow, texture, shape and form and that certain something that cannot be described. While I do quite a bit of work with set-up and posed shots, I am always on the look out for what I refer to as "the divine moment" when all those things described above come together for one moment in time. I prefer not to pose models but to capture moments.

New Group - Artistic Nudes DDs

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 31, 2016, 3:52 PM

Dear Deviant Friends and Watchers,

Ever since deviantart decided to stop featuring artistic nudes in the Daily Deviation section, I have longed for a group that features only artistic nudes deserving of daily deviations (especially so I don't have to sift through the crap to find good, quality photographs). I have finally decided to create that group myself.


Several things will happen in the coming weeks:


1. I will serve as the only administrator right now while I get the group going.


2. I will slowly but surely be sending invites out to other photographers on DA.


3. I will slowly but surely send out requests for images that I think are DD worthy and for images that were already DDs before deviantart changed its policy.


4. In the meantime, please sign up to be a watcher of this group. I expect it to be good. Here is the link: Artistic Nudes DDs



I appreciate your support and assistance. I hope it will make it worth your while. I have never run a group before so I would appreciate any words of wisdom you can share in the comments to this journal entry and I certainly will apprecate your patience as I get this going as I am very busy.  I have applied for Super Group status and am waiting to hear back.

Just stumbled upon "Autumn glow" and loved it, so I came here and... wow. I especially love your windows photos, the way you played with light and rays and cloths and... models.

Went to see also your group, and you're right : artistic nudes *should* continue to be able to receive DDs. Well, I didn't even know they stopped featuring them ! Just a thought : I think some photos I saw there weren't worthy of a DD, so don't post too many pictures, I prefer quality to quantity.

If you have the time, come and visit my own gallery, there are nude photos you could like, I love playing with light too.

Hey!

Just wanted to pose a question. I hope it's not taken as rude. I'm not sure how you ended up on my follow list other than you've worked with another photographer/model that I enjoy, but I've noticed that pretty much everything you've posted lately seems to be from shoots you did 5 years ago or more.

Are you not shooting any longer? You do great work so it would be a shame to learn you've stepped out from behind the camera. Hope this finds you well.
