Since 2006, Gary has been doing fine art nude photography, concentrating on contrasts of light and shadow, rough and smooth, traditional and unexpected. His work has been published in the US, England, France, and beyond, and been a part of numerous exhibits in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Chicago, Seattle and Florida. In March 2011, he launched his first solo exhibit, featuring over 50 of his best known works and recent images.
Publication credits include PHOTO 2011 Grande Concours (France), Carrie Leigh NUDE Magazine, B&W Magazine, and The Mammoth Book of New Erotic Photography.
Gary is also seeking gallery representation, as well as exhibition and publication opportunities.
About the work...
"In my work, I try to emphasize the strength, grace and beauty of the female form, as well as exploring vulnerability and expressions of intense emotions. In many images, the contrast of figure and surroundings is emphasized by the contrast of the images themselves."
Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Gary grew up as the son of an avid photographer and learned both the skills and appreciation for photography from a young age. After years of shooting advertising work and concerts, in 2006 he turned his focus to fine art nude photography with an emphasis on the strength, grace and beauty of the female form. “I keep it simple. The individual nuances of each model are more than enough to work with. I often concentrate on contrasts — light and shadow, rough and smooth, traditional and unexpected. Black and white is really my ‘native language’ and for me it adds the right emphasis to the light and forms and textures.”
