Erotic Art Photography
South Beach, Florida
Born in New Jersey in the 60's, moved to South Florida in
the 80's. My older sister, a model in NYC, always wrote me about coming back to
New York to begin a career in modeling. Having gone on many photo shoots, watching
my sister and the other models play dress up was nothing out of the ordinary.
Staying in South Florida for the beautiful weather, I decided to try my hand at
modeling while working part time at a local bank. Never realizing the cost of
a quality portfolio and finding an agency soon became a reality. I decided to
purchase a camera, instead of an expensive portfolio, and attempted to learn enough
to take my own portfolio.
Using the beautiful landscape of Florida's beaches as my backdrop, I soon became
a fixture to the regulars. Trying all kinds of different shots, angles. It wasn't
long until I was noticed and approached by models on the beach working on their
bronze tans. Thinking I was a professional photographer, many asked if I would
shoot them and how much it would cost for a portfolio.
This is how it all began. I started shooting models for the cost of film and a
good contact. Contacts lead to other contacts that ultimately lead me to Italy,
where I modeled bathing suits, lingerie and shoes. I learned the business quick,
traveled all over Europe, and made a good living.
My desire soon changed from creation to creator. I didn't want to limit my career
or creativity to the small niche my physical attributes allowed. I decided to
return to South Florida to be a photographer. An erotic photographer. I wanted
to be different. To capture the sensuality of my subjects.
Allowing no set format to my shoots, I attempted to photograph the essence of
the unique persona of each of my subjects. Placing small ads in local papers attracted
women from all walks of life. The results were surprising, even to me. The hidden
passion that was in me from a young girl became a reality through my camera.
I have been published several times in various magazines and have been displayed
in galleries and stores throughout the world. I recently developed a free Internet
web site, where anyone can view, appreciate and purchase my work.
Now, with over 17 on-line galleries with over 500 renderings, the site has been
the focus of my marketing efforts. Needless to say it grows and evolves with the
coming of each new day. The Internet needs more sites that manifest passion, sensuality
and eroticism, to a world hungry for emotional stimulation and obsessed with shallow
visual carnality. My aspiration is to capture on film the sexuality that lies
within all of us.
