Capturing the diversity, especially the aspects not readily accepted in society today, of one's life is an honor and a thrill.
Photography has been an evolution for me; what began as a mere attempt to capture, memorializing life's moments of importance - especially those involving family and friends, somewhat quickly grew/evolved into a true hobby and then on from there into a passion. Passion and pleasure mixed together make for erotic beauty and capturing moments of my own hedonistic joys was the bridge leading me out of the bland, the vanilla and into the abstract of Erotic Art.
My evolution in this artful medium is constant, enlightening, challenging, empowering, boggling, awakening, mindful, and oh so much more; just as life itself and that is exactly what I strive to capture. Debauchery, my favorite word, is the aura, the state of being, present in my work; at least I hope it is. We have evolved so dynamically as a species, yet as a society we have largely not done so when it comes to sensual, erotic art. The essence of life (Joie' de Vivre), the beauty of ourselves, as beautifully created beings, should be celebrated, reveled in and shared.
Being an adventurer, and an explorer of life, both behind and in front of the lens, it absolutely does so for me. Chemistry is not a "plus"; it's a requirement! How can we truly have fun, laugh, explore, challenge ourselves and truly be present in the moment without such? It's the difference between good and great; applying not just to a personal connection, such as what occurs between artists working together, but to so much more; i.e. ... conversation, cooking, exercise and most all other stimulating aspects of life!
Water, is such a powerful and pure element, it is hard to imagine not wanting to shoot, at least at some point, most everything and everyone, in nature; letting natural beauties collide.
Engaged in the moment, willing to push boundaries, but never break them is where I enjoy taking others and myself as well. Exhibitionism within reason, is erotic & can make for greater intensity with more pleasures for all participants. The anonymity of travel often allows for greater exhibition and exploration of one's self; which I like!
