about Dave Rudin


I'm a fine art photographer living in New York City, specializing in black & white art nude and travel photography. I'm proud to call myself "old fashioned," as I still use film and make silver gelatin prints in a darkroom when I can. My work has been exhibited nationally and published internationally.

I studied classical art at university and I like to think of the models that I photograph as being "living sculptures." Perhaps another way to explain what I do is that I like to create beautiful images, and what can be more beautiful than a beautiful woman in her natural state?

I began photographing art nudes in 1995 and I just published a book covering 20 years of my photography. (See the link above.)

  • Absolutely beautiful portfolio. You have exceptional mastery over the tonalities of black and white imagery. Part of my desired aesthetic and something I respond to personally. Hopefully we may cross paths one of these days. Love to chat about your lengthy involvement in the fine art figure photography area.

    • Thank you so much for saying so, Philip. Such comments are always greatly appreciated, but especially when they come from a photographer such as yourself who is also very good at what he does. As you have said, hopefully we shall cross paths one day.

  • Thanks for the kind comment re: Blue. Sherman has the day off so he can wash his toga. These images were from my first and second shoot with Blue back in '09 and have since done many more.

    I've long admired your work, going back to the glory days of Community Zoe.
