M y art is for those who view the female form as it should be viewed…as a work of art. There is abso- lutely nothing more beautiful, artistic, fascinating than the nude female. Nude models are some of the most amazing people and I highly value their trust in me. I wouldn’t consider myself a photographer; I’m an artist with a camera. I have always created art in one form or another. Photography is my current preferred medium. My original intention was to get reference photos for my art and when I viewed my first photo shoot, I realized that the photos were art in and of themselves. My goal during a photo shoot is to capture K.D. Dickson the female nude as you have never seen before or at least better than what you have ever seen. But of course all art is very subjective. I will only shoot the female nude. My camera has seen nothing butt. No spelling error, I’m better known as Nothing Butt Naked. The best compliment I have received for my art was from a heterosexual female upon viewing one of my pieces: “Jeez, that picture makes me horny.” All of the credit goes to the models. Without them, I have no art. (Image) Pearls – Model: M.J.
