Newest Deviations

I post new images every 4 to 24 hours depending on my backlog, so as not to flood your inboxes. Optimally it's one photo per day unless I've been working a lot (and then it's only 4 or 5 over a 24 hour period; never 30 or 40.)

Critiques

Body shot. by ISRanger

First off, this is a truly great image. I love the lighting (it's one of my own favorite styles) and the pose. The contrast between lig...

First off, nice to see you posting again! In general this Dracula commercial series does exactly what it needs to: promotes the play in...

I don't often give critical advice to anyone other than my students/protoges/etc unless I really feel that I can help the person.

I love that the effect created by the model's legs gives her the look of a beautiful mermaid. Classical curves and beauty offset by the blue dye running out of her hair. Urban Mermaid by UniqueNudes (Suggested by ladysky and Featured by scottb)</i>



2007-12-05
Seventeen Girls by UniqueNudes was suggested by its own author, although I was going to feature it anyway, so I loved the courage! I'll now transcribe his comment: "I recently did a shoot celebrating the diversity of the female form. I had 17 models from all over the Southwestern United States; all races and all sizes. (Seriously! 96 lbs to 275 lbs.) It was a really neat shoot, and although it has gotten a lot of positive attention, I think it's exactly the kind of stuff that will bring a positive light to the AN gallery and I would love for it to get some more exposure." (Suggested by UniqueNudes and Featured by Helewidis)</i>

Brita Shive by princess-irulan UniqueNudes wrote the following: "I realize it might be considered "cheating" to suggest my own image on somebody else's gallery, but this series would not have worked without Amy's amazing expressions and style as Alex. Amazingly, this was her first ever (non self photographed) nude shoot, and she did one hell of a job. Also, I am amazed that a model as talented as this one has not yet gotten a DD for her work as a model!" (Suggested by UniqueNudes and Featured by Helewidis)</i>

The Art of Richard Rasner
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
My name is Richard Rasner and I am both a professional art photographer as well as an accomplished photojournalist, although art is my main job and source of income. My fine art work is currently shown in museums and art galleries worldwide and I also tour the U.S. quite frequently on book signing tours and photo safaris.
Before the economy woes forced its closure I also toured the music festival circuit with Mojo Republik Magazine (a division of Universal Records) as their lead staff photographer, shooting bands such as Billy Idol, NIN, Panic! At The Disco and many more. I now shoot for KCXX Radio and my own magazine (Nakayama Studios Magazine) doing the same thing.

My first nude photography book "Whispers of the Mind" was a best-seller on Amazon.com in 2006 and there are numerous documentary films about my work. I am quite friendly and approachable, so if you have any questions, ask! You can find me at my book signings and gallery shows of my work, as well as at my photography workshops which are taught through the Erotic Heritage Museum's "Education Outreach" program as well as at my own studio. I have curated art shows at The Apparatus, Box Office and AMP Galleries and I have also worked for Laura Henkel Fine Art as an *actual* gallery director, in the real brick and mortar art world.

I currently reside in Southern California very near Los Angeles, which is where my main studio (Nakayama Studios Riverside) is located. I also have studios in Beijing China & Anchorage Alaska, and plans to open 4 more in the next year. Note me if you would like more information.

With a name like "Unique Nudes" I am constantly looking for new models and ideas, so if you're in Southern California or Southern Nevada and you want to help me create art, please contact me at info@uniquenudes.com.


Nakayama Studios LLC is headquartered in Southern California, with studios in Riverside CA (Unique Nudes) Anchorage AK (Cold Mountain) & Beijing China (JJR).

Your work is unique and creative. The Pennsylvania locales remind me of my years living in downtown Allentown, Pa. Except I never saw such lovely models. ;-)
