Photo shoot with Artemis

Working on images is the last thing I should be doing today, I have a deadline tomorrow and I am days behind. But I just could not stop myself.

Friday I had the most amazing photo shoot and live drawing session with Artemis, an incredible model from Fort Wayne. When we first sat down to discuss the work we are going to do, I came to realize just how perfect she was for what I intended. Most models I work with have some sort of fashion background and since fine art nudes are a world away, it is sometimes challenging explaining the concepts I strive for. However besides being a highly experienced modeling for live art classes, Artemis does yoga, dive and is a complete natural at just being herself. I am so excited about the work we did I just could not leave the images alone. Never mind my initial intention of giving them a week to ‘breathe’.

Here I share one of my first favorites. I expect I will be sharing several more in the days to come.
