This is my tumblr devoted to my muse, model Liz La Point, a fine art model from Minneapolis, MN and Southern California.
Ask me anything
I have been photographing Liz La Point for over three years and I have several books of our work for sale, as well as prints, t-shirts and more.
I have been shooting for 15 years and specialize in conceptual, fashion, fine art and editorial photography with a twist of eroticism. LIz La Point became my wife in October 2011 in Joshua Tree National Park, a year after we had one of our first shoots there.
My official site devoted to my work with Liz.
(re-blog if you like just give us credit!)
So, We were reported on 500px.com for “pornographic content”, and being thin skinned at times, I take offense to that.
There is nothing in my eyes that is pornographic about our work.
NSFW???, yes!!! Sexy???, I hope so! Erotic???, maybe a little?
If I was making porn I would own it, but since I am not I don’t like the suggestion.
Sometimes I wonder if I should just stop sharing the work Liz and I do because I get sick of close-minded judgement but I vowed a long time ago not to let other people dictate what we do.
Personally, I’d like to sell thousands of prints and books and see Liz in major magazines but then I think, with positive feedback and fans also comes haters and back lash. I can take it, but I am not sure I would appreciate negativity directed at Liz.
Sorry, the endless stream of flowers and macro close-ups of eyes and bugs offends me but I don’t report them, lol.
I have always been more interested in capturing the female form than anything else. I know in our over increasingly politically correct world, that is less accepted, but I’m not going to stop doing it just because some people have issues with the human body.
I also prefer doing sexy, conceptual and editorial type sets that tell a story that might be playfully erotic, but you aren’t going to see penetration or super up close shots of genitals in my work.
Finally, I wish people would just message me directly and express what offends them so I have a sense of if I am actually creating something offensive or if someone is just being too sensitive.
I often censor myself and hold back. I would love to post work that pushes the boundaries just a little more but some overly sensitive jerk always spoils it for every one else.
Oh well. Luckily, I get to see all of my images of Liz and not a single one offends me!
