The dance between light and structure, tones and tension, goes on.
“I have…a terrible need…shall I say the word?…of religion. Then I go out at night and paint the stars.” – Vincent van Gogh.
“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” Carl Sagan.
Those words are in the first book I’ve ever cherished – Sagan’s Cosmos. I’ve read that book several times and still have the original volume given to me as a birthday gift back in 1980. I was 12.
I identify with them when it comes to certain aspects of my personal photography – projects I do just for me. Things I look for when I have a need of religion. Fine art form, flowers, and a few other things. Images that are created for no other reason than to feed my soul.

She proves that fit women are sensual women.
I make it well known that there is no “ideal” age or fitness level when it comes to doing a boudoir session. Everyone has the ability to create amazing images. All it takes is a little faith in the right photographer. I’ve made it my goal to show exactly that.
Geraci (https://www.instagram.com/juniper_geraci/) recently reached out to me about working together. She is a woman of a certain age. Don’t bother guessing, I promise you, you won’t get it. She’s also a fitness enthusiast who works hard to look like she does.

It’s good to be home.
I love being a photographer. It is, in all honesty, my life. If I’m to be even more honest, there are certain topics that I love shooting more than others. I love working with people more than, say take traditional landscapes. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good landscape. Working with people, however, reaches a deeper level of satisfaction.
For me, artistically, black and white form work is my personal acme. It is where I open up and do my best work.
Even the act of photographing it elevates my spirit to a higher plane. All the distractions and white noise of daily life fade away. My mind, which is usually a jumbled mess of a thousand things fighting for my attention at once, goes quiet. I am completely and totally in the present with my focus tuned into a patch of skin a few inches across but really represents it’s own landscape.

The following post might raise some eyebrows. That is my goal.
Sorry for the absence. The Valentine’s Day crunch took up all my free time. Mind you, I’m not complaining at all. I’m just now turning the corner and getting back to a normal routine of posts. Thank you for being patient. I hope the following was worth the wait.
I don’t think the images that follow should surprise anyone. The recent trend in my work has been more into the dark and mysterious. More visceral. More elemental. More sensual. There are so many paths to explore when it comes to sensuality. I’ve been fighting the urge to go down them but I’ve conceded that it is inevitable. So down the rabbit hole we go.

Exploring the Dark Side further with fine art form.
Oh how this is getting so very exciting.
When I started my photographic journey in earnest decades ago I found myself firmly in the realm of black and white fine art nude and form. My first solo show was heavily weighed towards this genre not to mention my BFA graduation portfolio. An example of that work was awarded the President’s Award and now is part of the permanent collection of SUNY Oswego.
