I just shoot for fun and not as a business, I have a day job that is nothing to do with photography. I have been published: I shot some lions outside the town hall and a couple of my images were used by the local free paper; of course, they didn't pay me.
I usually work with my wife Good Grace. She very rarely appears in front of the camera but assists with poses and ideas. She appears once below, look for the sunset image. She is also my toughest critic; she doesn't mind me photographing naked women, with or without her, but she wants me to do it well. She provides many of my ideas and also props such as the lacy outfits and the masks. The musical instruments are mostly mine though.
My only shoot style is Nude and my portfolio is mostly naked women, so: do we only shoot naked women? No, we also shoot women with their clothes on, men, flowers, trees, mountains, and various other things. However, we can easily arrange all of the other genres outside of Purple Port. I don't post these other genres here.
Our primary interest here is art nude. More specifically non-sexual nudity e.g. unusual poses, activities, or locations. Naked music, see below, is a specific example. I would like to add more location shoots: either outdoors or places other than studios.
We are willing to pay female models who interest us and who are happy to do art nude shoots. Adult levels are not required but implied or topless is too restrictive.
We sometimes include a few SFW images in a shoot but most, or all, of the shoot will be completely nude. We are not interested in intermediate levels such as stockings and suspenders, boots, sheer, topless, etc. One exception to the intermediate levels is that we often use lace items as props.
An on-going interest of ours is nudity and music, particularly classical music. I started the group Naked Music. So, we are particularly interested in models who have and can play, or at least realistically pose with, musical instruments.
