This photo was done to advertise a day spa. The model spend two hours getting a massage - I don't think it was the most difficult job she ever had to do.
This photo was taken at the Meridian Hotel in Beverly Hills. The room had soft complimentary tones and a recurring theme of rounded shapes.
Two models and a nice hotel suite gives a photographer a lot to work with.
People are frequently giving me props on the condition that I give them a photo of a nude women with their item. A couple in their 70s gave me this stove - it had been in their family for decades. Now in it's place, they have this photo hanging in their kitchen.

Sometime people want an example of "implied nudity". The concept that shows the model is probably nude, but that you can't actually see anything. In this case, the model's pose also implies that she is freezing, but it was really a warm day in Santa Monica.
Another of (what I hope are) the dramatic, Hollywood style portraits that I've been practicing.

Setting up this photo took an ability to balance on the part of the model and some duct tape.
I write these little notes with each photo for a few reasons and one is to provide key words for people searching images. I keep track of the key words that are used to get people to this blog and, after names of well known models like Amy Ried and Teresa May, the most popular key words are "spread legs".

This image features spread legs, although it may be a bit of a disappointment for real "spread legs" aficionados, the legs are spread.

I'm often asked what kind of camera I use for one photo or another (as if cameras have magic powers that allow them to automatically take good pictures). This photo was taken using a $15 toy camera called a Holga with a plastic lens.
Another photo done using window light.

I like the bathroom or "washing up" theme. It helps give a pretext to a person being nude in the scene.

It also helps sell prints. People like images like this for their own bathrooms.
