At 23 he accomplished quite some nice works, this young man. He was happy to pose for me my style. I emphasized the bright light with the dark shadows, representing all the 11 zones there are on the scale of photography.
Walking man 4
Another from this series. It takes some effort to get all the elements in and of his position right. Like the lift of the heel and the forward pointing chin, and the position of his arms.
Swordfighters various actionposes tableau
At special request of some interessees in practitioners of late medieval European swordfighting, I tried to make a collage, to inventory the movements. They're still scholars but serious ones, instructed by a friend of mine who even appeared in Game of Throne some episodes ago, recorded in Ireland. This tableau was shot in The Netherlands, with some volunteers using a longsword. There is more with others too. I used the book Italian Rapier Combat as a reference but they had their own ways and suggestions. I kept the composition and use of light in focus. You may see more details in print. I will allow some bigger print of this, by exception.
Shiatsu masseur
I was introduced to him while in Pasadena California, 1992. This is taken with natural light only, while he was preparing for a client. I did not want to disturb his preparations so I did not use any flashlight. All on film, but it came out good and shows the atmosphere that was in the room.
Swordfighter pose
He was following a workshop given by another swordfighter/stuntman who knows everything about late medieval European swordfighting. This is considered to be an art. Out of some 50 participants that weekend 4 were ready to pose nude for me, delightfully shameless, and to my knowledge typically for the old days in Europe.

very good models and poses! 
So many in dramatic and intense poses,
I like the mixture of relatively classical
together with modern poses. 
A pleasure to see serious work
that does not glamorize or cheapen the model!
A great resource for DA artists.

I'm honored with that. I love to see results, of any kind.
