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.

Bathing in B&W

Recently I had a chance to do a fun boudoir photography shoot where we had access to a bathtub full of bubbles.  A tub with bubble bath gives a photographer a chance to have some fun.

This photograph was originally planned to be a traditional color photograph, but every once in a while I will try an alternative treatment on an image to see where it can go.  In this case I found black and white to be  very effective.   Both Monique and I liked the B&W treatment over the color version of this photograph.

Even though I always have the final photograph in mind when I do click the shutter, I find that having an open mind during processing opens the door to some fun and interesting alternatives.

Monique said she liked how much more sexy the Black and White version looked.

Bridal Boudoir – Hall of Mirrors

What to give the groom as a special gift is a challenge that brides often face.   Bridal boudoir photography rapidly is becoming a great answer to that very question.  I love to shoot this type session as the bride to be is always so very excited, and I know the groom to be will never forget this very special private gift.

This time the room we shot in had lots of mirrors for me to work with.  I love mirrors when I shoot, of course they do present challenges for a photographer as it is often difficult to hide yourself when dealing with multiple mirrors such as in this shot.

Of course I am always up for a new challenge when I can make a future bride look this beautiful.  We had a really fun time during her shoot, and I know her groom will love the private label album she had created just for him.

Boudoir for Valentines

Valentines Day is approaching and one sexy gift that seems to always be very popular is boudoir photography. Every year an amazing variety of women come to the decision that glamour photographs would make the perfect, sexy gift for that someone special in their lives – husband, boyfriend and lovers. While posing as a your sexy self you might feel like you could feature on or another similar adult site, and your partner will most likely think the same when you surprise them with the sexy shots.

Each woman brings her own special style and sexiness to the session. As the photographer I consult with them prior to the shoot on ideas from lingerie to fantasy outfits. I work to learn their style so each shoot is different. Some clients want to add fine art nudes to the mix, others bring in motorcycles or even cars into the studio (nice to have enough space to shoot a car). Just when I think I’ve seen everything, someone will come up with a new request and I love it.

But my boudoir photography shoots are not limited to just shooting at The Studio, my Tempe photography studio. I do a lot of work on location as shown in the shot above. Some women like to shoot at local resorts and some even have me shoot in the privacy of their homes. Each location gives plenty of creative opportunities to create some sexy boudoir photographs for the special Valentines Day gift from you to him.
