Gerhardt Thompson :

" Regarding the models there are not enough words. Without them there would be just a landscape, without their passion and expression there would be just a pretty face and for me the beauty of a woman is not in their physical attributes instead in what they have to share through self confidence, expression, understanding and trust.

Each of the models I work with share natural beauty, there is never any make up and I have to remind them not to do their nails, there is nothing artificial just body language and it is my job to look closely at feelings, light, mood and to integrate the sum of these parts.

These ladies are bright and their abilities should never go unquestioned. The models work hard and give 200% of themselves. It is for this reason that I must do my very best for them each time I pick up my camera. They have my utmost respect !"

This is the first Literary post I have made. I just wanted to say thank you to all of the art-models (as well as clothed, and partially nude, male and female) whose galleries I watch and art I enjoy.
Thank you for sharing and thank you for your bravery, honesty and commitment to your craft. I tip my hat to you all.

David Le Beck, in loving memory

What makes you beautiful is not the nakedness of your form or the suggestiveness of your pose.
It is not how close the lens zooms to the most prized and priceless areas of your anatomy.

It is not the illusion of whatever suggestion is conveyed by your expression and the ambiance of your setting, nor is it the way the light falls across your frame to cast a symphony of shadows and highlights which seem to play in perfect harmony.

"The Water Maiden"

"I work with people that are more than models, they are truly the main subject of the image - these people bare their soul, more than their bodies, they explore their boundaries, their freedoms and freely give of their emotions as well as their poses. Without these wonderfully understanding artists, there is no hope of Art ever being created." Beau Nestor

Though all of these things have their place in the art you create, what makes you beautiful is something far more innate

It is your knowledge of self and freedom to express
It is the way you make confidence seem natural and effortless
It is the vulnerability you are not afraid to show
It is the union of your mind, body, spirit and soul
It is how your image transcends the lust of undeveloped minds
And portrays the elegance of a form ordained before time

What makes you beautiful is something much deeper than skin
Than your arms, breasts, thighs and unspeakable gems
It's what you show but don't speak, time and again
It's something much greater… It's the you that's within

Thank you.
