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.


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!

Here's a set of photos featuring Amadea, taken in a deserted warehouse.  She has a very expressive face, and incredible posing skills.  Most of her poses give a feeling of sadness or despair.   The soft lighting wraps around her, and adds to the overall mood.

As with all my stock art reference images, your download includes a copyright license for the use and sale of your new artwork both on and off DA.  Book covers, posters, postcards and prints etc.  Usual restrictions apply - no pornography, obscenity or excessive gore.

Hi, made this virtual-waster-gfx.deviantart.… using two of your amazing models, I'm still such an amateur compared to some of the manipulators that have used your work, but hey, hope it's OK and is to your liking.

What are rules on using your stock images?  Will I have to pay for the stock before I can use it?
ArtReferenceSource Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014  Professional Photographer
Yes, first you purchase a stock set or single image.  Then you can use them within the terms of the license.  I've sent you a copy of the "full" license for review.  This covers the stock packs.  Individual images have a more limited license.

Once you review the license, contact me if you have any questions or require further clarification.
