Patreon! Tumblr! Where can or should an artist who photographs nudes share their work? Is censored images on instagram or Facebook good enough? How does one honor the actual work? I do what I can to address the considerations of the art nude/ fashion nude photographer in these 5 brief minutes!

Welcome to a new series where I show you some specific shoots I did with models and Fuji Instax film! These images were shot with the Fuji Instax Mini Neo Classic 90 in 2015 with model/ actress/ Penthouse Pet Glass Olive aka Olive Glass. We shot in Utah by the Great Salt Lake, a very barren area ideal for the minimalist photography I like with my Instax.

I wanted to post a few recent images I did with dancer/ stuntwoman Alana Schoen in LA. Probably my favorite styling to work with is a black turtleneck and leggings; I’ve done it many times with many different models and it always comes out with a super clean design that appeals to me.
All images shot with th eFuji X-T2, 35mm lens, LED lighting.

Over the years my photography has gotten more and more focused around a plan – booking studio time, working with booked models or paying clients, even basing my own family photography around trips to exotic locations in the Southwest or Alaska or Hawaii or Mexico. It has been a long time where I just went out with the camera and shot stuff without a plan.
Tonight, on a routine trip to McDonald's with the kids, the sun hit just right and my daughter Maggie's hair was just the right combination of wild and fashionable.
I feel like to get good at a creative medium, or keep up one's chops, it's important to work at it during "off" time- like an illustrator who sketches while watching tv. Shot with the Fuji X-T2 and 35mm 1.4 lens.
Hey out there! Summer’s winding down, my kids are back in school, and Skillshare classes can once again start flowing. This one is about a topic near and dear to my heart – Finding Your Photographic Vision. It’s a class not about the technical side of photography but about the steps anyone can take to become more unique and expressive in their photographic art.

I also wanted to mention that San Diego Comic Con just wrapped up, and Adobe sponsored me to give a panel on their motion capture animation software Character Animator. It was a hoot to be onstage at the largest comics convention anywhere, and it’s all down to a film I made called The Innocence of Seduction and the corresponding classes I created on Skillshare. On my channel there are lessons about Motion Comics in Photoshop, Character Animator, After Effects, and other Character Animator tutorials here and here!
In light of the massive number of gear reviews and how-tos on YouTube, I felt like making a short vlog focusing on developing a personal vision. In Part 1, I tell you about some of my own photographic heroes – Sebastio Salgado and Ralph Eugene Meatyard- and how they influenced some of my own work.
I’ve always had a problem: I live in the Southwest- surrounded by exotic, beautiful environments like the Painted Desert- but it’s just far enough away that it’s not feasible to take a pro stylized model with me to shoot out there. Enter my daughter Maggie, who at age 8 has been in enough of Daddy’s shoots in her lifetime to finally get styled and shot way out amongst the petrified wood. Hair and makeup done by her mom/ my wife Vesna Miller. We’re going to make this a routine thing- once a month- with the goal of building up a youngster to be an ultra stylized look.
All images done with Fuji X-T2 and either the 35mm 1.4 lens or 23mm 2.0 lens.
