|I have been
asked by several people to do a photograph session for payment. I no
longer do photography except when it interests me. I no longer do
photography for payment.
However, I am open to ideas
that broaden my experience and knowledge.
If you want to collaborate
or have an idea that might interest both of us, please email me,
describing what you have in mind. The result need not be posted on this
Here are a few photo
projects that I have done in recent times:
was asked to document a woman's body. She wanted photos of everything
from her hands to her feet in detail. She had done this every ten
years since her 30th birthday. This year she turned sixty. This was a
fascinating experience. We made an album documenting how her body had
changed over the years.
have been several "boudoir" sessions. A boudoir photo is an
intentionally erotic picture taken, usually, in the woman's own
boudoir or bedroom or other location. The woman poses in suggestive
clothing, lingerie, nightgown, or sometimes nothing. The purpose in
each of these shoots was to have a gift for the person's husband or
boyfriend. There are good photographers who do this for a living and I
would usually refer, but it is a challenge to learn to do this better
so occasionally I might do it.
project was a "day in the life" of a man who was stricken
with a terminal illness. His wife and he asked that I create a memory
for her after his death. Even though this sounded a bit morbid when I
first heard it, in fact it was a wonderful experience and a joyful
one. He did die and about three-four months later, his widow called me
and asked how she could repay me. I convinced her to make a major
contribution, in his name, to an organization for research into his
biggest stretch for me was a couple who asked me to do a
"porno" session of them making love. We had to discuss this
at length and even then I had some trouble pushing my envelope. But
this was totally private and something they wanted only for
themselves. It was a challenge because it was way beyond
"tame" eroticism. At the end, I felt honored by the trust
they gave to me. They called me some months later to tell me how much
pleasure they get from looking at the photos occasionally as a prelude
to their love-making.
