I've been photographing nudes for several years, first at workshops with Lucien Clergue, then at Left Space Studios in San Francisco.
In cases where a model has been photographed both in the studio and on location it is usually because only after shooting with them in the studio did I became aware that they preferred posing out of doors or in a residential setting.
For the last year I have been working on a book about models who pose nude. Each model I use for the book is asked to write an essay about some aspect of her modeling career. It can be what she likes, dislikes, wants, experiences she has had, what she wants to say to photographers, or anything else she likes. I often add comments about what transpired in the shoot, how things were lit, where the shoot took place, and my reaction to the model. I expect the book to be published sometime in 2017.
