I am really pleased to be able to share this work with all of you. It is a completely different side of me that few have seen until now. I am hoping to advance my skills as I go along, and I appreciate all your encouragement and comments.Here's how I found this site in the first place: for a few years I've been dabbling in nude self-portraits for artistic and general well-being reasons as stated in my journal entry of 1-8-10. I was commenting to a comrade at work that all the social networking sites seemed to disallow nude photos. Wouldn't it be great to find a site where you could pose tasteful erotica? Not porn -- I know there's a gazillion sites like that -- but someplace where artists could share their work with one another. Someone sent me their portfolio on DeviantArt, and I thought "great name! Maybe this is the place I was looking for." I mean, you don't call your site DeviantArt unless you are looking for risk-takers. That was my thinking anyway, so here I am.
Deviants have asked about my various fave collections (Beautiful Guys, Women I Have Not Slept With,
etc.). In my line of work, we are always looking for photogenic people that can sell a product. I guess I have that in mind as I look for striking images on this site. If I add your image to these sets, be assured I am paying you a respectful compliment, acknowledging the appeal of you or your model (or both!). I have an ironic sense of humor, so that sometimes comes out when I name things. Don't think anything else.
People have been kind enough to let me know when they like my photography or my modeling, so I feel it's only right that I participate as a viewer and commenter of other people's works as well. Which reminds me.... rather than just thanking people for faving your work, why not take 30 seconds to look at that person's gallery and fave what you like there? They'll understand you are grateful, but at the same time, you will be encouraging another artist by giving him valuable feedback on which of his creations show the most promise!
