about The Artlaw

Thank you for visiting my Model Society profile page.

I am an East Coast transplant to Texas, by way of the Pacific Northwest, and I have degrees in art and law. I worked in art galleries and in catalog photography as a photographer’s assistant while an undergrad design student at Rutgers. Starting my collegiate career as an illustration major, I soon discovered painting and photography, ultimately graduating with a BA in Art & Design.

Despite this background, I make my living as an attorney, and consider myself a journeyman photographer, striving for improvement with every shoot. My primary interest in photography is in making art and building my portfolio. Although I have a variety of influences, I particularly enjoy the work of photographer William Mortensen and the painter Maxfield Parish.

I originally picked up the camera as a means for creating reference photos for paintings, until I fell in love with the photograph as an art form in its own right. I love the relative immediacy and portability of photography in the digital age, as I am a notoriously slow painter, and I just don’t have the time right now with the demands of my day job to commit to it the way I might otherwise like to. Some have described my photographic work as painterly, however, which makes sense to me, as I try to compose with a painterly eye, and render with an eye toward the primal, the mythological, and the heroic.

My current interest in model photography is pairing my interest in long exposure water and waterfall images with the female nude form, as well as the nude in nature generally, which I consider a form of environmental art. The natural interaction of humans with nature reinforces a primordial relationship that we all share with the universe. I do also enjoy studio work as well.

I seek to capture a mood with each image. I greatly enjoy a collaborative effort with the model, and I’ve been blessed to work with some wonderfully creative talent. Please enjoy my work and thanks again for visiting.

  • Pleasure to follow your work here and your current creative endeavors in the West. I appreciate the number of images you've added to various favorite galleries. Very kind of you. Of course you utilize my favorite fine art nude genre; "nudes in nature." You can't go wrong (or at least it's pretty hard to!)

  • Hello The Artlaw -

    Thanks for adding my photo of Keira to your "Favorites" gallery. "The Pedals of a Rose" is one of my favorite images that I've taken of her.

    Thanks again.

    Sincerely,

    Neil

    • You’re welcome, it’s a beautiful capture. It didn’t quite fit into my theme galleries, so it defaulted to my favorites folder. I love the rich, red, warm tones!
