People sometimes ask how, when, where, why .. well, this is partly the answer. Of course more "official" work is done, but this is what leads up to it .. and follows it too.

John Peri
Fully agree Mark, thank you .. however, the overwhelming majority of my models have never posed before (which is not the case of the one above), which renders the task, the challenge too, more interesting .. but even with the professionals, too often we represent them in a manner which is different from how they really are .. I love the fun, the warmth that sometimes emerges from these shots .. maybe it can help to dispell also some of the sordid, focused ideas that a few people have about nude modelling ..

Mark Harris
For those who view and comment on nude images on but have never photographed their own, they might not appreciate all of what goes on behind the scenes. For those of us who have, we get this series totally. Sometimes I think it is somewhat surreal. Most experienced models are so comfortable being nude that doing the things you have photographed, in front of we photographers, is no big deal. This is a great collection which always brings a smile to my face.

I think these moments are fantastic, John.

John Peri
Thank you Tammy dear .. they are the ones that mostly stay ingrained in my mind .. strangely, often the ones that the models enjoy the most too ...
