About Me

My motto is “Single light source essential”. I have said it before and I will say it again, how do we define ourselves as an artist if we do not endeavour to work towards something original…it is difficult these days as so much has already been done. The Australian landscape is so unique yet the light is even more unique. I have travelled the world yet I have yet to find the drama that unfolds here every day. I know I can create light in a studio and well, so can everyone else…Leave the studio and accept the mercy of the elements, forego all control except your own ability to control your camera…Lets just say that I prefer not to control the light I can create but to control the natural light that can only be harnessed through understanding its many nuances.

My creation is one with order, one with harmony and balance. This order is achieved through the balance of light and shadow, fluidity of the tones, the expression of the light and in particular the model integrated with the environment which is integral to the overall perspective. It is the interaction of the light and model with the landscape that influences the destiny of the end results.

I invite you to share this quest with me.

I am a fine art nude photographer working strictly in the capacity of black and white (B&W) photography. My subject is the beauty of the nude physique set in and around the Australian bush and beach.

My website http://www.gerhardtphotography.com provides further links to my solo exhibit in Perth and Sydney, Australia, three International Exhibits, over fifty joint exhibits and six European based exposés. I have been interviewed by Foto Plus (Portugal), Jade Magazine (UK), Il Republica (Italy), The New Nude Magazine, FHM Spain, MeinBerlin.de (Germany), Incubus Choice, The Art of Love, and Duclerk.com. In addition to being published by them my work has also been published in the Sow’s Ear Poetry Review and The Blue Fifth Review in the USA. I have had two books published, The Sun Drenched Nude and Gerhardt – The Book (a limited edition collectors book). In 2009 my book Exposing the Nude will be available and I am also working on another book titled Defining Masculinity. I have won over 80 awards in both open and specific categories and over 100 acceptances/honourable mentions. I am a photographic judge at Photo Konkurs. Currently my photography hangs on walls around the world and I am considered one of the top photographic masters of the B&W Artistic nude.

Hello, I hope things are well!

I’m coming to Sydney December 4th - 16th & taking on paid work while I’m here. I’ve worked in the industry for many years, highly experienced in a large variety of styles & very committed to work. I’ve worked throughout AUS, EU & NZ with works being featured in various galleries/magazines all over the world. Although I usually commute with public transport within Sydney I might be willing to model in some regional locations including Central Coast, Blue Mountains & Wollongong/Shellharbour.

If you or you know anyone who would like to work with me while I am in NSW, I’d love to know. My rates are 150 an hour & offering pay off methods if needed. I have experience of posing for multiple photographers & with other models. Thanks, kind regards, all the best. Looking forward to hearing from you.
