about Thom Peters Photog
My focus is the creation of beautiful artistic nudes, though I will and do shoot other styles such as beauty, fashion, glamor, etc.
This statement reflects my attitude on shooting artistic nudes better than anything I could devise:
"If I have chosen the female form in particular, it is because beauty has been debased and exploited in our sensual twentieth century. We seem to have a need to turn innocent nature into evil ugliness be the twist of the mind. Woman has been target of much that is sordid and cheap, especially in photography. To raise, to elevate, to endorse with timeless reverence the image of woman, has been my mission – the reason for my work."
Ruth Bernhard, from "Views on Nudes" by Bill Jay
I've been in the business now about 15+ years but have been photographing for nearly 35 years with everything from a Kodak Brownie to my Canon 6D today. I absolutely love photography and being creative.
My current focus is Art Nudes mostly in Black and White with some color photos, shot outdoors and in the studio. I look to present the human form in an artistic manner which is creative, beautiful, and which honors the beauty and humanity in all of us.
