I mentioned before that I have this other account on dA:… , and I'm wondering what I should do about that, since it's kinda confusing and splits apart my galleries of male nudes 

14 deviants said Keep everything as is and don't worry about it
5 deviants said Just hope that one day dA will come up with a way to combine accounts without losing faves, comments, etc
2 deviants said Move those images over to THIS account, even though I'll be forfeiting all the existing faves, comments, group inclusions, etc.

OMG I have this nasty cold and I've been sneezing and blowing my nose for days.  It's been quite a while since I've been sick, so I kinda forgot how much it sucks.  Anyway, I'm glad to stay in touch with all of you, and I'm very happy about the new friends I've been making here.   I also miss some other friends I haven't heard from in awhile!  You know who you are hehe!!!! 

I hope everybody is working hard toward their goals and making room for art no matter what!!!   I have tons of images from all my model shoots, so you will see a steady flow of new work from me -- NO WORRIES.  Plus i continue to mentor a few, select, new models online from dA -- something I enjoy greatly. 

OH!  And Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!!

(Bad Spanish translation follows hehe)

OMG tengo este desagradable frío y he estado estornudando y soplar la nariz durante días. Ha pasado bastante tiempo desde que he estado enfermo, así que un poco olvidado lo mucho que apesta. De todos modos , me alegro de estar en contacto con todos ustedes , y estoy muy contento con los nuevos amigos que he estado haciendo aquí . También echo de menos algunos otros amigos que no he escuchado de en cuando ! Ya sabes lo que eres jeje !!!!

Espero que todo el mundo está trabajando duro para alcanzar sus metas y hacer espacio para el arte no importa qué !!! Tengo un montón de imágenes de todas mis brotes modelo, por lo que verá un flujo constante de nuevos trabajos de mí - no se preocupe.  Tambien sigo mentor de unos pocos selectos , nuevos modelos, en línea desde dA - algo que me gusta mucho.

OH ! Y Feliz Cinco de Mayo !!!!

Hard to believe, but I just celebrated my FIFTH anniversary on Deviant Art!

My journey began as a neophyte dabbler in nude self-portraits. As I gathered supporters and honed my craft, I discovered I had a knack for editing. I also came to realize that collaborating with other models was a lot more social than photographing only yours truly. (duh) So I branched out and am truly proud of the work I accomplished with my friends on dA.

In the meantime, and especially this past year, I have connected with a good number of local models who have posed for me in my studio. I take great joy in all aspects of my art -- both meeting and collaborating with local models and editing the captured images into something artistic and memorable.

What makes me happiest is when people add me to their Deviant Watch list. I am thrilled to have recently passed the milestone of 1000 DevWatchers! If you're not already watching :sherlock: me, PLEASE DO.

If you still want to know more about ME, look at my Do's and Don'ts below. And if that doesn't scare the crap out of you, drop me a note. I don't bite... too hard :D

Hey! Here's an idea! Rather than just thanking people for faving your work, why not take 30 seconds to look at their gallery and fave what you like there? They'll understand you are grateful, but at the same time, you will be encouraging other artists by giving them valuable feedback on which of their creations show the most promise!

Current Residence: Vancouver
Sometimes Residence: LA and NYC
Favourite genre of music: Ambient, Classical, Lounge, Jazz, Intellipop, EDM, North African
Favourite photographer: Arbus, Weber, Gorman, Ritts
Favourite style of art: Realism, Surrealism, Suggestivism
Operating System: Yosemite, baby!
MP3 player of choice: iPad Mini
Favourite cartoon character: Minions!!!
Personal Quote: Answer not a fool his folly lest ye also be thought a fool. Haters take note.


OP Today by ToddParis
OP Today
You all know my model OP.  (see gallery here:… and here:… )   Here is a recent portrait.

Todd's dA Do's and Don'ts

Here's what I like and I don't like....


- Do talk to me if you are considering doing nude self-portraits for the first time; I like discovering new talent and coaching them.

- Do tell me what you like about my work.

- Do offer constructive criticism if you know better.

- Do let me know if I can help you in your creative quest. I am a great supporter of talent, having launched many careers and promoted many artistic projects in the commercial arena.

- Do +deviantWatch me. If you care, that is.

- Do post art and info about yourself on your own page, so I know who the hell you are. A photo is even better. A photo of your face, that is. If you remain anonymous, I probably won't be in touch. Life is too short.

- Do collect my work and fave what interests you. Sure, why not!

- Do let me know your favorite scotch. I'm rather fixed on Lagavulin. Although I do switch off with 18-year-old Oban to keep it real.


- Don't use, distribute or repurpose my photos; they are strictly to share with other artists on dA. I am only in this for the art; I don't care about the public, and I don't want my photos appearing anywhere outside dA.

- Don't comment on my dA page with links to your money-making Facebook, Twitter or web page. i'll nuke you.

- Don't collect my images adding crude sexual tags to reference them. The models don't appreciate that, and neither do I. Do I really need to state this??? Come on, guys.

- Don't post personal stuff about me or you -- that's what notes and Skype are for, dweeb.

- Don't post every bloody photo from your shoot; pick the best, edit as required, then show us what you're proud of.

- Don't forget that photos require light, and good photos require contrast.

- Don't post pictures of your cat (or hamster) unless you hire a makeup and hair person and employ proper studio lighting.

- Don't title your photos with just a number; if you don't care that much about them, why should we?

- Don't post your pix with an obstructive watermark if you want me to fave them and watch you. Seriously.

- Don't post your pix in original size on dA. The last thing anybody wants to do is wait 15 seconds for your image to reveal itself. Post in normal 600, 800, 1000 pixel sizes and save the big resolution image for people who buy your prints! Or for me, if we collaborate together. Big file sizes and high resolution are meant for post-production not web viewing!!!

- And most importantly, as you go through life, DON'T BE A FLAKE!…

Hey there! Thanks for adding my image Ananas to your collection of exquisite men. I'm sorry to burst your bubble but he is actually a she! Always was and always will be. This… is her also and it doesn't get anymore female than this! Sorry dude! I understand the mistake since I had to crop the image above her breasts....
Nice collection though!

No problem. It is a cool photo. I hope to shoot with some male models soon, studying with self-portraits, but I think I need the real deal! :D Keep up the good stuff!
