I owe everything to the people who braved the oh so early mornings and conditions out there, it is only because of their dedication and love of art that this book came about at all. There were moments of sheer beauty when the air was perfectly still and the sun had painted a watercolor sky, there were times it was blazing hot and Amy asked me "where to next?" I feel so blessed to be able to offer Desert Nudes, my humble tribute to a love of the desert, the balance of spirit and beauty of nature, it was a long, sometimes agonizing road and I would travel it again.... in a heartbeat.
For me beauty is everywhere, even in remote, forgotten, abandoned and forsaken places. My goal is to present through photography a celebration of the beauty and humanity in nature. The art models in my work represent the harmony between humanity and the environment however harsh that environment might be, nature provides us the opportunity to contemplate, to explore, to experience and to celebrate. I hope to convey both the beauty and the wonder as it exists in our world, even off the beaten path and in an unforgiving climate.
