Transformers Bedroom

This is my bedroom in its Figure Studies and Bodyscapes Studio Configuration. I’ve got it down to where it takes about five or ten minutes for me to change it back and forth from this to its Bedroom and Editing Lab Configuration, and even less from Bedroom and Editing Lab Configuration to Boudoir Studio Configuration.

I do most of my work here, which I have to tell you, is pretty excellent. I’m damned proud of the work I do. I work for myself, I set my own hours, I can sip a little wine on the job if I want, and the commute is negligible. Sometimes I shoot on location outside somewhere or in a client’s home, but usually a long commute day for me is shooting in the living room, or in the master bath or in the kitchen. And let’s face it, there are worse jobs in the world than having wonderful, beautiful, generally awesome women calling you up to ask when they can come get naked in your bed and look at you with their sexy-schmexy-face.

But best of all, I make people feel good about themselves. That’s what I do for a living, and it doesn’t get any better than that right there.

I do love my job.



To repeat the disclaimer, this is a project about re-discovery. It’s about remembering who I am, what I’m about, what I love and what I do not. Fair warning, this project will be posted here rather than at my SFW site because there will be nudity from time to time. Some of it will be of me, some not, some artistic and pretty to look at, some just raw.

I don’t intend to think of something every day and then shoot it, though I may do that sometimes, too. But sometimes I will just shoot, and then find something about myself in the frames and post about that thing, whatever it is.

All my #365SelfDiscovery posts will be filed here.
