Art Model Lela Rae

"Intimate Portrait 1"
Art Model Zinn

An amazing talent,
A wonderful vision,
An endless and (Im sure !) a consuming inspiration,
A devoted love for BW pictures,
An outstanding grace and a true purity in each of his compositions...

This is, and so much more, William Earle, photographer from Philadelphia, Usa, and member of the Professional Photographers of America :

" William works with light, shape, form and an occasional prop capturing expression, emotion, beauty and passion with the nude figure.William’s work is largely an exploration of and into himself and the people he photographs."

Art Model Moon Marie

And all is said.

Working with the greatest art models as you can see it, in a shared and deep respect I love so much, William Earle is also a man to read. His philosophy of life has something that warms your heart. You just have to click here, you'll understand what I mean.

Now, as we know it "a picture worths a thousands words", so it's time to admire his work. It's time for Beauty.

Thanks a lot William for your enthusiasm.

Art Model Trinette

" Trinette is a master with poses like this producing what I consider to be some wonderful work.
She's a lot of fun to work with !"

"Hands of Light"
Art Model Candace Nirvana

" This was shot on a very hot day at a State Park somewhere in Maryland, USA. I find hands to be extremely expressive and at times they speak loudly about the individual."

His bio, his artist's statement,
... and all his passion :

" Located in suburban Philadelphia, PA, my primary focus is fine art portraiture along with the variations, permutations, wonderful and magical moments that just seem to come out of nowhere.

We as human beings are full of life's stories, emotions and feelings. My hope is to share and capture these on some level.

"Painted with Light"
Art Model Melissa Trout

My passion is photographing people and my goal is to share this passion with everyone who I am fortunate enough to photograph.

My primary interest is in creating images that have something to say and communicate to the viewer. I want the viewer to feel something on some level when they look at the images.

Much of my work is in black and white, which I believe communicates feeling and emotion in a timeless manor without distraction that color sometimes introduces.

"Soft Emotion"
Art Model Jessamyn

" Jessamyn is an outstanding model from Australia and I was very fortunate to have an opportunity to work with her. This is a favorite lighting set up of mine and I think she really worked it well."

My approach is a collaborative one working with the models before and during a shoot. Ideas and input from models is always welcome.

I have been fascinated with photography since I was a very young child. It has drawn me into its magic, the magic of feeling and emotion that a photograph is capable of generating.

I have been practicing and studying photography for about thirty years photographing just about anything you can imagine. My journey has brought me to the realization that people are what I am truly passionate about.

Prints of most of my work are available by contacting me directly at this email address

"A Portrait"
Art Model Elizabeth

William Earle and Stephanie Anne Landers : a winning team !

" Here are some images that I consider to be some of my best work. The art model is Stephanie Anne Landers.

I have been extremely fortunate to meet and work with Stephanie Anne on a number of different occasions.

We work extremely well together and have produced what I consider to be some very strong images."

"Film Noir 1"
Art Model Rael

" I received a comment on this image applauding me for breaking a rule with the lighting and complementing the image.

As far as rules go I don’t really know what they are or pay any attention to them.

I think if you follow guidelines or rules or whatever you want to call them, you’re placing restrictions and limitations on your vision and the work produced.

"Goddess of Light"
Art Model Candace Nirvana

My work involves much experimentation. Some experiments are quickly dismissed if it’s obviously not effective and some take some time, work and practice to attain acceptable satisfactory results. I experiment a lot and in many cases follow my instincts. If I like the results of a particular lighting set up I’ll use it and explore it, if not I’ll move on.

I do my work for me to please myself first and if someone else enjoys it or appreciates it that’s also a wonderful reward.

If you see something interesting, grab it, play with it and explore it. Great things can come from being aware and open.

A book by William Earle

Available : here.

" The book is titled "Entwined" and is a selection of ten images from a figure study involving twine. All of the images in the book can be seen on my site in the Entwined gallery.

The images represent many different emotions, feelings and thoughts that we all experience from time to time as we travel through our lives.

The model featured in the book is Katy T. She is a wonderfully talented model and her input to this project deserves mention."

I enjoy his use of shadows where we tend to not want shadows in our studio work.
This outside the box lighting is very intriguing.
