Hi. Thank you for looking at my work.

I work with both male and female models. My work is limited to paid custom boudoir shoots for clients or paid portfolio shoots for models. I am willing to consider TFP for some special projects. If you have a particular idea for a shoot let me know and I am willing to discuss it.

My personal focus is on artistic nudes for submission to various art galleries and art shows. I really strive to get a shot that shows the person inside, real emotion, the inner person and sometimes a little humor in the print.

Sometimes I use models when I am shooting events such as trade shows and product promotions.

I began shooting pictures 14 years ago with black and white film often laboring for hours in a darkroom filled with chemicals. I lost the use of my eyesight for a few years and still have a challenge with my vision at times. Most of the time this makes it easier to see the composition as a whole since I am not encumbered by seeing all the detail through the viewfinder.

I now shoot color digital. I rely upon the camera, the model and the emotion to choose the right print.

I work a combination of planned poses mixed with some freestyle and I am open to hearing your ideas.

I travel some but mostly work in Lexington.  I do most of my work in my home studio but also like to shoot some on location.

If you are interested in working with me contact me at [email protected] or give me a call or text at 859-550-1220 (or Skype tfmcdonald).

About TF McDonald


In much of his work TF McDonald displays perfect beauty in less than perfect subjects. His unique style does not employ photo editing software to remove imperfections but prefers to introduce the image as celebrating the human body with all its parts.

TF McDonald spent 8 years unable to see well enough to make pictures. Now that he has recovered much of the use of his sight the whole world of photography has changed. The film has become digital, the darkroom has become a lighted computer screen, the trays, chemicals, hangers and tongs have disappeared.

He now mainly shoots his pictures in his small, home studio often using a wheelchair to move around the room.

“Things have been blurred so long that now I see beauty in all things around me,” says McDonald.

TF goes on to say, “I do not really make the pictures, the camera has a mind of its own. I may shoot a particular angle trying for a specific look but when I later look at the images suddenly the camera chose something and makes it jump from the screen.”

“I believe that art is not made, it is discovered. The art has always existed. The artist simply uncovers it and shows it to others.”
