About Me

Thanks for coming to my page.

I'm a professional photographer and digital artist and over the years have built an extensive stock and art reference file. Although many images are available on DA are free of charge, I have decided to offer my art reference images at a very small, reasonable price.

Why?

1. This is my profession, not a hobby. I enjoy creating reference photos of models which I use in my own photography and art. Since I only use a small fraction of my own photos, I would rather have other artists use them instead of just "gathering dust" on my hard drive.

2. Popular photos on DA are downloaded hundreds, even thousands of times - like clip art. As beautiful as many of the images are the more popular ones can be found in an endless number of artists portfolios. By comparison, my images on average are downloaded a few dozen times. This means much greater exclusivity for you, and new artwork that does not look like everyone else's.

3. Professional documentation and licensing. Proper model releases and copyright licenses are extremely important to visual artists. Every image I post online has a copyright license and available model release.

4. It's affordable. While typical photo agencies charge MUCH higher fees and have very limited licensing, you will find use of my art reference photos to be far less expensive and restrictive.


I hope you find my art reference photos useful. If you have any questions drop me a line!

Regards,
Len

I'm considering selling an Art Reference Source collection of images on a disc. It would have 50 sets of nude reference images - various models and styles. Aboout 1000 images. Price would be in the $40 - $50 range. Good idea?

Do you have any male models?? The pics are perfect for drawing but it would be good having males too.

Very few if any solo male shoots, although I am photographing a male model in a few weeks.  If you have any specific poses in mind, let me know. 

I had some sets online in the past, but they were downloaded so few times they were taken down.  I do have space limitations so sometimes unfortunately have remove some sets that are practically inactive.

Ouch :( I am sorry, that sucks.

If you make it it would be good to see one sat down but not just the frontal view. Thank you for asking *0*
