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.)

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.


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 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

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

Sometimes models just get silly, like this outtake of Tobi from the upcoming shoot Season of the Rose.  I thought you guys would enjoy a preview before the shoot debuts on Monday.

Weekend Photo Dump: PIRATES!!

Sun Mar 8, 2015, 11:10 AM
I have tons of new nudes to post starting Monday, but over the weekend I decided to post some of my commercial work for  The Royal French Privateers of Clan Darksail™

It's a pirates-for-hire group that I am a part of, so if you were wondering why your feed was suddenly very pirate-heavy instead of bewbs, now you know why.

If you haven't yet, check out our Facebook page (linked above) and give our group a "like" -- it would mean a lot to me, and tons of my models are involved too.

Thanks so much!
-- Richard, aka The Marquis D'Gascoigne :)
