About Me

Thanks for dropping by. I am creating a large-format coffee-table book of artistic nudes, which might explain the state of my folio right now. "Art Nudes'" Editor-in-Chief and one of the world's foremost critics of the genre, Michael Barnes, reviewed my exhibition as "subtle and dreamy - lovely". If my model really loves the shots, it's mission accomplished. If anybody else likes my work, it's icing on the cake. Coming from Barnes and considering the company I'm in - it is an achievement even getting reviewed - I'll settle for that succinct compliment from one of the world's best.

As if that wasn't enough, when the most internationally awarded person in the history of global advertising - bar none - and the industry's most respected legend wrote that my art-nudes are: "The best of the genre I've EVER seen", his caps, I've got to say he was tripping, yet it was without doubt one of the highlights of my short photographic life [I wish he'd said that of my advertising folio, but ... ]. Thank you, Neil French - and I sincerely hope that you'll agree to write the preface to 'The Feminine Monarchy'.


Anyway, enough endorsements, if you'd like to be made dreamy - or subtle maybe - possibly the best reviewer in the world suggests I may be your man. LOL. But first, so we're on the same page as to why art nude isn't rude, start with the The Pirelli Calendar 2005 and then check out my own philosophy from a '09 brief from MM. PLEASE NOTE: Phase one of the book is done, that is nude 'bodyscapes' - the next part is far more 'high fashion' like you've seen Kate Moss, Karen Elson, Natalia Vodianova, Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, Marija Vujovic, Naomi Campbell, Valentina, Fillipa Hamilton, Erin Wasson, Diana Dondoe, Isabeli Fontana and Heidi Klum in Pirelli.


"How precisely does one attract such models? The envious may say he has cast a spell on these sublime beauties. Personally, I see fashion and femininity combined so magically that I am inclined to believe that they are quite simply enchanted by that which he conjures." FAN

I shoot whenever the opportunity presents, with the sole aim of meeting that brief and publishing that opus. For now, I'd like to contact Pan-Asian/Asian models, and Caucasians in Asia, especially if you're coming to Bali where I am based. Examples of my work are in a video at the bottom of the Money Shot Studios website - The Feminine Monarchy - or if you're interested in checking out my advertising work & bio - Maverick Brands Asia - Drop me a line if you'd like to be in the book of the best.
