I love to shoot nudes. My nudes are not titilating or erotic, instead they are studies of beautiful women and sign posts in my own life. I shoot nudes for the subject matter and to immerse myself in the joy it brings to the model after the shoot. There's an elation. Few women see themselves as works of art, where as I adore and see beauty in each and every one. Most models look at the image as a picture of themselves, I like to shoot non models and get them to try see the image we've created rather than see a picture of themselves and do what every woman does, pick it apart.
I am lucky enough to have found some great non models to shoot who trust me, understand the process and the result. I am shooting a series this year of non models based on just trust.

I had a week of inspiration in charleville castle whilst shooting my botticelli birth of venus.
an inspirational image that moved my career forward, we should always believe in ourselves.
my beautiful photogenic muse, inspires me by giving me a greater understanding of people
