Anonymous asked: What made you interested in photography? Especially nude photography? :) -Lauren
My father has been a photographer most of his life, so I grew up spending a lot of saturdays in the darkroom and taking pictures. School paper, yearbook, etc. Took a couple classes in college, shot a lot of concerts, and it came in handy for my day job - advertising. Shot a lot of construction sites and factories and bankers and products on tabletops.
About 2006, a random series of requests got the camera back in my hand, but this time shooting people. A friend then asked for racy/nude shots to give her boyfriend, and there was this loud CLICK in the back of my head where things started making sense. Since then, I’ve been working to improve my techniques and “eye” and so forth. I’ve tried “fashion and glamour” type work, but prefer the simplicity and timelessness of my versions of classic nudes. There is nothing more compelling to photograph, in my opinion, than a beautiful human figure.
