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

Kari's one of my favorite figure models, and I have several sets of her online.  For these photos, I changed my usual very soft side lighting to a more dramatic spot from a lower angle.  The result is a nice shadow above and to the side, which is reminiscent of lighting used in old Hollywood posters, and still used in many photos that want to have a certain air of mystery.  You'll also find this kind of lighting used on a lot of pulp fiction novels from the 40's and 50's. 

As with all my stock art reference images, your download includes a copyright license for the commercial use and sale of your new artwork.  You're not just limited to sales of prints and merchandise on DA.

Kimberly is an amazing model.  She has a really striking face and figure unlike any model with whom I have worked.  Very thin, but she projects an extremely powerful look and style.  Poses that are sometimes extremely elegant, at other times distorted and almost awkward.  Some expressions are soft, others are mean and edgy.  In short - this is a very different set of nudes and one I hope you find useful.
