I have quite a few wayward photos that don’t really have a place on my websites, but I’d like to find a way to include them. These two photos of Brad and David are two examples. They don’t fit in any of the current series I’m working on. I’m not sure what to do with them or how to work them onto either of my websites.
Here are a few more recent photos of my model, named Tell. You can see the rest of them on my website.
Here is an editorial series I shot a few weeks ago with my model named Tell. For now, I’m calling the series Country Road, and you can see the whole series on my website.
Here’s two new NSFW photos of one of my newest Erotica models, Caleb.
I needed to test the lighting in my studio one day and my model Mickey was standing nearby, so I asked him to have a seat. These two shots were never meant to be seen by anyone but me, but in hindsight, there’s something about the pair, together, that I kind of like.
Mickey, as I’ve mentioned before, has quickly become one of my good friends in addition to being a person that I’ve been enjoying in photography.
This is Christopher, my most recent headshot client. He’s a classical singer, studying at Indiana University. He’s a baritone. His professor and mentor brought him to me.
I’ve had the idea to shoot a model in a cheap motel for a few years. Finally, I paired up Mickey, my newest model, with LisaMarie. I decided they were perfect to fulfill this concept.
Then serendipitously a few weeks ago, Jay (my now roommate) and I needed to go to a supermarket to get a few things before a spring snowstorm. Something told me to go to Meijer, which is in the opposite direction from our neighborhood and which is a place I have never set foot in. We got our groceries and then we left, and the reason I needed to be here became clear — the perfect old roadside motel was across the street.
It was still a bit chancy since I didn’t see the inside of the rooms. (I’m not the kind of person to select a location sight unseen.) Bud I did it, and we three walked in, and it was exactly as filthy and outdated as I wanted it to be.
Here are some of the photos from the shoot, which is called Foreplay. You can see the whole series on my website — and you should look, this is one of those rare shoots when I’m not posting all of the best photos here (or maybe the whole series is just that good).
LisaMarie and Mickey worked together fantastically. They had fun, they laughed about the hideous motel room and yet they were totally serious when I held my camera to my face. They immediately became friends. They looked great together. I think I’ll work with them again.
And there really was something rare and special about this shoot. It was one of my favorites, period. Mickey felt it, too. He has worked with many photographers, but when he took off for home he grabbed me and hugged me and said, “Thank you for giving me this; it was my favorite shoot, ever.”
I love that.
It’s not often that I take family photos. But my friend Jerry asked me if I’d take some photos of his daughters, and of course I said yes.
Jerry later told me that his daughters had a great time in my studio and they felt like models, which makes it worth it.
I met Brian during a promotional photo shoot for a recent local run of Naked Boys Singing. He was one of the naked boys (and he’s the only one who I handed a business card to and whispered, “I’d love to work with you again.”)
Brian was agreeable and came into my studio a few days later.
You can see more photos from the shoot on the Vir Impudicus gallery of www.virimpudicus.com.
It’s been forever since I talked about it, but I still shoot headshots for local actors. Here are three of my recent clients, Andrea, Alex, and Dustin.
If you’re in Indianapolis and need a headshot or portrait, let me know!
