About Me

My name is Bruno and I am a highly experienced, life-long, amateur photographer.
Seeing people from a perspective of that which makes them uniquely interesting is the challenge and the goal of my work.  I love to find what makes each individual captivating and beautiful.
If I send you a friend request it is because I have thoroughly read your profile and admire your portfolio and I hope to work with you.  I see no value in "collecting" friends without the intention to work together.  I travel a lot for work and hence my "friends" are everywhere.  Sadly, my lead time is often short before I know if I can shoot.
What I like to do is establish private Pinterest Boards to exchange shoot themes/inspiration/ideas so we are productive with our time.
My artistic interests in nude/erotic photography are currently focused on telling the story and conveying the look of the model primarily via light, in particular, high contrast lighting.  I enjoy exploring the shape and mood from common views via the shaping given by light.  I find it difficult to define "erotic" as a genre as differentiated from sexy nude and say fetish.  It seems to be very subjective.  I will state two things wrt erotic.  The first is not a rule, but a guide.  I think Erotic as a genre likely involves "open-leg".  It is meant to be sexually enticing.  The second is that I think the power of Erotic comes from the model and as such I like to convey what a model thinks makes them erotic. It is collaborative in design and as such, I appreciate working with self-confident models that also have wish lists to shoot.
I believe that beautiful visions are often best conveyed through simplicity and as such, I try not to work with a lot of make-up and hair beyond the "natural look".  I have several make-up artists and hair stylists that work with me.
- Open to try new genres with people
- I enjoy sharing in the creative process (not a dictator)
- a sense of humour is ALWAYS involved
- I like to have clear communication and be respectful of people’s time
- I am highly professional and respectful and can provide more references upon request
- Photos will never be shared, including on Model Mayhem, without the models' consent.

A go-to subject area that falls outside the description above is swimwear work in which I have significant experience.  In that context, I believe it is important to highlight the swimwear's unique appeal and be sure that attention to detail is taken into account.

For new or lesser experienced models, I am open to doing "headshots" and portraiture to help you develop your portfolio in exchange for model time.  If you have a whim of a new and quirky idea, lay it on me.

I am looking to work with models that like to think and work creatively out of the box and who have a serious approach to their work, but with a fun and friendly attitude. 

I hope to make use of Model Mayhem to work with models and other artists that share an interest portraying simple is beautiful, with a creative flare.

Current project themes include a black & white focus on legs, extreme shadow portraiture work, a fitness/body building theme, models in forest settings.
