" My inspiration sources ? The beauty around me. I can't escape it, it is always around me."

And he's right ! Of course. Beauty is everywhere.

Rust2D lives in Moscow, Russia, this country so rich of fabulous artists.

Rust2D is a 30 years old renowned photographer... Only 30... I let you imagine what will be his work in the long future he has.

It took me several days to search the best words to introduce his art. And much more to choose the photographies that could give you the best vision of his prodigious talent. I know his work since 8 years, because he's everywhere on the web, and I'm always surprised by the power of his imagination.

Art Model Shima

Rust2D is an accomplished and worldwide recognized artist, firmly contemporary.

Like Nikola Borissov or François Benveniste, two Masters who contribute since the beginning of this site, Rust2D is a wonderful portraitist and a true composer.

Lighting, settings, compositions, expressions (emotions !), details, in color or B/W, and always disregarding conventions, we see a true signature in each of his pieces of art. Sophisticated or minimalist, he shows an inexhaustible curiosity and an inventiveness that bring us the very best, his very best.

Thanks a lot for your confidence.

" I liked to draw when I was a child. After ten years of drawing (most of the time copying the old masters), I began to win some money from my art.

In 2001, I bought my first camera and started to push the button. However, for the first half of the year, I didn't shot one good photography, although I did it everyday, and never lost my hope.

In 2002, I was invited in a children' musical production. The scenographer and producer asked me to make some photos of the young artists for a booklet.

I had a session with a young actress with huge green eyes. She was really beautiful... And when I printed my first picture of her, I was so impressed that I literally climbed down from the wall to the floor and looked at it during 3 hours...

It gave me shivers, a good sign that explained me what I could do in the future. At this moment, I think I've understood and found my way.

"Fantazma - Silhouette"
Art Model Janna

Endless Fantazma project

When I started I liked only beautiful faces and luxury elegant poses. At this time I didn't think about the backgrounds and a good lighting. If compositions and prettiness of the models satisfied my appetites, I thought my shot was really good.

Then I started to shot in studio. I tried to "eat" the faces and bodies with deep shadow and began my experiments with colour filters and different lightning schemes, and liked it most.

After a few years of endless shootings, I've understood that shots with interesting ideas are much better than pictures with only sensual and beautiful girls... Better later than never. So I've started to write scenaries for my sessions.

"Flying heal"

I often prefer to work with my make-up and hair artist and stylist. And I don't grudge time and money and don't spare myself to generate new interesting colour or b&w rectangle.

It's really cool to live one-day-life with a new person and be really open with him. It's like a blood transfusion, an exchange of energy and sex with an human you will never meet again.

I think courtesy kills photography, people continuing to display their civil smiles and showing their control on situation. And their false is truly showed on pictures. Photogenic people don't mean pretty-faced people. Photogenic people are in harmony with themselves. And, of course, if you want to make your name in Photography, you need to work only with the most charismatic persons.

"Bald prisoner"
Art Model Ksenya Ivanova

So you need cruising and make of your life a big adventure.

You also have often to go away from all those who surround you, and that you like, to take new impressions from new people. You don't need to hold somebody with you. You must be rolling stone with lenses. That's how I'm living. I know one man who's walking down the street with the eyes shut. Now I begin to understand him : don't be afraid to be open and funny, on the thin line between the clown and the joker.


My projects ?

"Black smoka"
Fantazma series

This spring I've finished my first music video as a director, editor and cutter. Now, I'm writing a new scenary and drawing the frames.

This summer I want to make my first short movie, which is called "Body-Shop".

I also want to finish my photo-album which I've collected already 2 last years. The idea is to make from two frames - third meaning... It's really hard to put together left and right frames with such a concept. Here are my plans for this summer."

Art Model, Author and Singer St Merrique

Aaron Feinberg is a Photographer from Kauai, Hawaii (USA).

Working mainly outdoors, like Jason Tag from Hawaii too, for sure a question of magic landscapes, Aaron has a true predilection for BW photographs.

That said, I've discovered a man with a poetic vision of the nude combined with a wonderful sense of the composition. Do I need to talk about his so expressive art models, his lights, etc. including his outstanding talent ? No, you'll see it in each image of this too short feature.

In fact, Aaron has touched my poet's heart. And big cherry on a delicious chocolate cake with a lot of "crème chantilly", he's one the kindest artist I met and who gives a true sense to this : "do the things seriously but never take yourself seriously" !

Therefore I'm very happy and proud to welcome him. Thanks a lot Aaron ! What a wonderful work.

Once you get in my head...

Well... not all about me.

"Apocalypse Now"
Model Sabrina

I have come into photography after playing a game of cat and mouse with the medium.

As a child there were courses at summer camp, the gift of a camera here and there, but nothing really grabbed a hold of me. Always the interest but never the true desire. Then, while ski bumming in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, with a little point and shoot someone saw something in my ski photos and said “Hey, you should keep shooting”.

"My Only Friend"
Art Model Wolfpup

"Stary Night"
Art Model Rachel


Since that day I have strived to capture the world as I see it and improve every day.

Mostly self taught, I draw inspiration from photographers I’ve met along the way, whether in person or through the endless world of the interweb and thank them for pushing me (unknowingly) to reach ever higher.

And for those of you who want to know more... just ask :-)

Welcome George Schmauch

"Time Traveler"
Art Model, Photographer and Makeup-artist Carly Erin O'Neil

You'll find George Schmauch at deviantART, Model Mayhem.

"Primary Colors"
Art Model Candace Nirvana

The sense of the supernatural.

George Schmauch, travels a lot. In Photography. You'll admire here all the facets of his talent.

George is American, from Pennsylvania, a lovely state.

He likes to read H.P. Lovecraft or William Burroughs, Jorge Luis Borges, what means a lot, and his favorite photographers are Ellen von Unwerth, Bernd Hilla Becher, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Helmut Newton... what means a lot too and again. Of course.

A zest of classicism, the perpetual search for The expression (he's an "expressionist" afficionado), a lot of imagination and something to tell us, check the symbols in his work, here and there, I've found all that walking very slowly in his gallery.

"Oh God We're Out of Pudding"
Art Model Zinn Star

I've also noticed that George works with the most talented Art Models, I want to say the most creative ones, those I call the muses : Candace Nirvana, Carly Erin O'Neil, Stephanie Anne Landers, Jessamyne, Zinn Star... And we feel in his photographies how much they inspire him.

Last but not least, his interest for the old typewriters makes me say : he's a writer too. I'm sure. Observe his titles. But this is another story... he will tell us himself.

"Une chaise, une femme, une pomme"
Art Model Zinn Star

"...is the name of my humble photography venture.

'Zeitgeist' is a German word which means literally "Time Spirit", in normal usage the word is used to convey the 'spirit' of a particular era.

My work will in general also attempt to capture elements, moods, landscapes, and characters from bygone eras, from the Romantic and the Gothic, to Film Noir and Retro fashion.

Artist Statement

"Hammond Shifts"

" In a glance we know its shape, its function. Though now obsolescent, we can immediately identify the device. However upon meditation we may begin to see that a typewriter is not a singular unit, not "one thing" but many things.

Each typewriter is the sum of hundreds, perhaps thousands of finely crafted interlocking components. Each piece is unique in function and specialized to the myriad of manufacturers and designs that flourished at the beginning of the 20th century. See it as the engine of office drudgery and bureaucracy, a piece of functional sculpture, or as a modern mechanical symphony of moving parts, gears and levers. Only see it."
