Photography has always been a passion, and from that passion – nude and erotic photography has become a serious part of my professional work.
I love how the camera can capture more than static pose, people move – and their movement can be recorded. The erotic potential of being allowed to capture a thought, a gesture, a mood, or a movement in a fraction of a second is very exciting.
Digital photography has given me more freedom to pursue this idea. I can shoot many many images of a model just being herself – or I can work in natural situations without the restriction that film cameras used to impose on the photographer. In this way fresh spontaneous and unusual images emerge.
I love erotic suggestion rather than the obvious, natural light on the form and texture of the human body; the erotic potential of everyday situations brought into focus for a split second.
I think that realism with all of its imperfections is more erotic than overworked, clichéd or false images. Pus I hate retouching pictures. It’s really boring!
