Interested in Being an LIBP Muse of the Month?
For the coming year, I’m committing to a creative shoot each month, something out of the box, or just something new I might want to try. I’m a very creative person. But since my philosophy is to shoot my portrait, glamour and boudoir clients as THEY wish to be shot, in a way that’s in line with THEIR style and vision, I don’t have many opportunities to stretch my creative thinking and just…well…geek out in photography! :P
Since I’m not a landscape photographer, my creative work requires people. Different kinds of people. I don’t always need or want agency models. Sometimes I just want a certain look (e.g. freckles, firey red big frizzy hair, silver locks, a rubenesque/curvy figure, or dark chocolate skin). On my Long Island Boudoir Photography Instagram page, I will be posting a monthly theme or concept and inviting my community to submit a pic of themselves in consideration for these projects. I will then share each Muse of the Month project once they are completed so you can see the outcomes of our collaboration. I’m excited to get this going! Looking forward to hearing from you!
Below are a few images resulting from some of my past creative collaborations over the years. Time to push the boundaries even further and really rock! Who’s with me??
