Profile Picture: Venus of Willendorf 28,000 BCE.
I'm not a real artist. I'm not even a real photographer. I am really me though. And that's not as easy as it sounds.
My pictures are mostly of women. Like the stone carver of Willendorf 30,000 years ago, I am fascinated by the female form and I want to capture it, to celebrate it. I'm not doing anything clever or original here.
People are just so beautiful, but they are not built to last. The most we can do is to keep an image.
The models are people I know, and are all over 18. Models have given model releases for NON COMMERCIAL use of the photographs by me only. This means that if you want to post them elsewhere or copy them, or alter them, you must ask my permission, and in theory I should ask the model. so please do not use these pictures outside DA.....ever, unless you have written permission from me. Use of any of these pictures in an overtly sexual context, by manipulation, or by sharing on explicit sites will result in legal action.

Please enjoy the pics. Please keep the comments respectful, and bear in mind that the young lady you are talking about may be reading what you have written. I have to say that I have never had cause to delete a comment for being inappropriate. So thank you.
Suggestions and criticisms of my photography are always welcome, but just remember I'm an amateur, and I do have feelings. Suggestions for shoots are very welcome. I am often asked if certain models can be tied up and tickled. Maybe yes, but not by me I'm afraid. I should make it clear that I have never had any physical or sexual relationship with any of the models, ever. That is an unbreakable rule. The exception is my wife who appears as a cameo in one of the pics. You will need to search carefully to find her. Just like I did.
I joined as a watcher and that's all I did here for over a year until I started posting my own photographs in 2015, while I was feeling bored in the French Alps. Since then I've loaded 600 pics, then deleted them all, and started all over again, twice. I am temperamental and over sensitive. I can't really change that.
