I’m currently looking to photograph more tattooed humanoids for my new (unpublished) photo-project “The Inner Outside”.

The sessions will take place at my London studio (Hackney Wick).
Since the project is self-funded, the participation is currently unpaid. However, all future profits from artwork sales will be shared with the subjects and tattoo artists.

For those who asked me which camera I use, it's mostly Phase One systems, hired from the guys at Teamwork Digital in London!

Nothing beats a 50, 80 or 100 mega pixel on a medium format sensor, especially if you planning on printing your work. Incomparable details and sharpness!

I'm sending nearly 100 packages to different places around the world. Mainly rewards from my recent Forest Project #Kickstarter, but also from the Transfiguration one before...along with other purchased prints!

Who's expecting a treat from me here? ❤

Personally I am happy with my decision, why wouldn't I be? It's a natural occurrence of the body; of course it's beautiful. It makes me feel strong and empowered, taking on my full form...
