New Year, New Fun

New Year, New Fun

Seems everyone wants to learn how to use their camera, so my photography classes have been filled.

Boudoir photography sessions have slowed down, but will pickup again for Valentines day.

Sometimes I get clients for maternity photographer work the were boudoir clients before.  Hmmm, I wonder.

So much to talk about

First of all, I have been teaching constantly.  And I have schedule a lot of photography classes and workshops.  So now is the time to learn all my tricks.

I played around with water for a bunch of boudoir photographs.  Be sure to check them out.  Next summer I will be doing this again.

And maternity and newborn photography is always popular.  I love it when my maternity clients return for their newborn photos.  It lets me enjoy a bit of that special time in their life.


Holidays are already getting busy!

Did some more filming for the reality show as a photographer.  Hopefully I won’t end up on the cutting room floor.  I will keep you posted as to when it airs.

Had some real fun creating this maternity photo recently.   I am always looking for new ideas.

Also been shooting a lot of boudoir photography for holiday gifts.  Several have chosen to add some fine art nudes such as this one.

Fun week

So many things happened this week it was great.  I did a shoot for the feature story in Automotive News.  Can’t wait to get a copy.  I love automotive photography.

Taught several photography workshops this past weekend.  Both fine art nudes and pin-up photography.  Everyone had a great time.  This week I will be teaching an introduction to photography class for DSLR’s.   Click the workshop link to learn more about it.

A few boudoir photography clients came in for their photo shoots.  More lucky guys out there will be getting some great gifts.

And a few more maternity and newborn photography clients came in for their shoots.  You never know when the newborns shoots are going to happen, so it’s always a pleasant surprise.

I have a large charity pin-up shoot scheduled for next weekend.   It’s going to be a blast.



Windows and Boudoir

Whenever I do boudoir photography on location, I always hope for a big window in one of the rooms. The light coming through that window is so often just perfect for boudoir. Sure it may take a few tricks to get it to behave just right, but the end results are amazing.

For the studio I have just acquired a new prop that will be perfect for boudoir photography sessions. I will also be using it for pin-up and will give it a try with some maternity. What can I say, I love this new prop.

Pin-up, Fine Art Nudes and More!

Another very busy week here at Orcatek Photography! Shot several amazing women in boudoir and glamour photography sessions. There are going to be some very happy guys out there soon!

And of course there was more classic pin-up photography. This style is becoming very popular and is a lot of fun to shoot.

Of course there were some headshots for some future stars. Fun shoots as they are always so full of personality.

And I also did some fine art nude photography. These images are often requested by my clients as additions to their boudoir photography sessions.

Looking at next week’s schedule it should be another great week with lots of variety.

Shapes and Shadows for Fine Art Nudes

Fine art nude photography can take on a variety of styles. I find that the looks I tend to shoot really are focused on two key elements – shapes and shadows. Often a simple twist on a pose will create an interesting shape.

Then again a simple pose can create the most beautiful shape with wonderful curves and lines.

Shadow and light are my favorite tools for creating interesting fine art nudes. They create unique bodyscapes that are just amazing.

So when you come for your boudoir or glamour photography sessions at our Tempe, Arizona studio, just remember that your photographer can always add some fine art nude photographs to your session.

In the Bedroom with Jes

My favorite shoot of the week was one with Jes that we shot in the bedroom. She wanted her boudoir and glamour photographs to be very sexy but still remain modest. So my photographer mind went to work on creating the perfect poses to give her the look she wanted.

She loved the entire shoot. We did a wide variety of looks to make sure the book we were creating would have a new sexy surprise with each turn of the page. I thinks someone is going to be very happy when they see the result.

BBQ Pin-up

One of my boudoir photography clients last month wanted me to do a fun BBQ pin-up for valentines.   As a boudoir photographer herself, she knew there was one photographer that she would go to for her pin-up photographs – Orcatek Photography.

Of course the pin-up was a surprise, so she requested I wait until after valentines day before I showed it here on my blog.

As you can see we had a great time creating this photograph and many others.  When I create pin-up boudoir images I like to process them to create the effect of them being graphic art like some of the classic pin-ups of the past.

Big Belly Baby

Jessica came to the studio because she wanted to gets some maternity photographs done to remember her “big belly baby” as she called it.   Jessica was glowing and she looked amazing.  We spent a few fun hours shooting to create all the photographs for her memory book.

As a photographer I really like it when my clients bring in a large variety of outfits to a shoot, as it gives me lots of creative choices.  Jessica brought a ton of fun outfits, resulting in a beautiful collection of shots.  Each photo set created a new mood.

Jessica should deliver her baby soon.
