Bookstore update !









You, art-lover, viewer, reader, in your opinion, how long does it take to create an artwork ? Does it let enough time to make anything else ?... Mmmmh ?...

Furthermore, is there another choice for the artist than to dedicate all her/his life, night and day, to the art which choose her/him ? And never the opposite, believe me.

All the Contributing Artists of this site sell their artworks (the only right word), books and calendars, maybe etc. And beyond my passionate dedication for all of them, I run also this site to promote them.

So you who know how sad would be our world without Art, go and order !

Wet is centered on the idea of movement, and to catch the moment where the "subject" is no longer modeling.

To incorporate movement, sometimes repeatedly, until what's left is unguarded expression and immersion in the moment.

Dark Light

" I've taken the plunge and put together my first book, Dark Light, which is available now. It's 70 pages with 68 photographs and features a variety of images, some of which have been presented here, and a number of shots I prepared for potential inclusion in the "Dark Visions" show. It includes work spanning the last 18 months or so, and is fairly representative, but by no means exhaustive.

I'd like to thank all the models who participated in making the images, as well as everyone who has helped and encouraged me along the way. Your support has made all the difference."

Infimis

" My fifth book of photography, "Infimis", is now available.

The book is beautiful, hard cover, full color, 232 pages, lots and lots and lots of my pictures.

This is the definitive greatest hits book going back 15 years all the way to a shot I did while still in the Navy in 1992.
Also included are wonderful behind the scenes stories about almost every shot written by the models appearing in the photographs, (yes, that was an accomplishment in itself).

It is a true sit down and read sort of book besides being a pretty damn good picture book too."

Irakly Shanidze - "Snipers in Love"

To purchase his book, go : here.

"Snipers in Love" is a great example of how different approaches to fine art photography can coexist in perfect harmony under the same cover. "Snipers in Love" is a collection of two hundred photographs that are enchanting and intriguing, provoking and plain funny.
Photographs of Garik Avanesyan (Czech Republic), Pavel Dolezal (Czech Republic), Irakly Shanidze (USA) and Edward Tevosov (Russia) are different in style and content, but they all have something in common : all four artists treat photography not as a tool for mere recording reality, but as an opportunity to visualize their unique and at times peculiar way of seeing the world and to bring it to a viewer."

'Beautiful Bondage', the art of rope bondage, volume one' was shot in early 2006 and produced in partnership with my then-assistant John Grinter, it was a combination of decorative rope bondage (another passion of mine) beautifully photographed and a how-to guide for the rope ties.

'London Bound' was shot in the first half of 2007 and took rope bondage into the homes of real London women, many were trying bondage for the first time, it's all real and photographed in a very 'real' way. I have copies of my books here and this is the one I pick up and flick through most of the time, I love it myself.

'Fine Art Nude Photography', so-titled as I feel my nudes fit squarely in this category, is a compilation of 250 fine art nude images I photographed between 2004 and 2006.
