Hello...and, thanks for visiting my page. :)

I truly appreciate all of the comments, favorites and messages from those who view my photographs. You people are great, and I'm just in awe of many of the wonderful works that grace your pages!

Like many of you, I am a photographer on a journey. I have many interests, but my passion is working with people and striving to create something special. Sometimes I succeed with a particular photograph - surpassing even my own high expectations - and sometimes I fail to one degree or another. But, I'm always having fun and always learning, working towards the next success which I know is right around the corner.

Please visit my web-site, barelight.com, for more photos, videos and photography/lighting tutorials, tips and tricks.

Please contact me if you would like to purchase a print of one of my works. I can then give you size and finish options to ensure optimal quality for the selected piece.

Commissioned work

I maintain good working relationships with many of the models you see here and certainly welcome private commissioned work - just shoot me a message and let me know your thoughts.

Models

If you live near or are visiting the Kansas City area and wish to work with me, send me a message and let's see if we can make it happen!

Current Residence: Kansas City, USA
Interests
It's happened for me a couple of times before (once under an old account), but I still get a rush when I log in and see my work has received a Daily Deviation!

Friends by BareLight

I create because I must.  There is a drive inside that I simply cannot ignore.  When it comes down to it, I'm really just a guy trying to share the beauty I see in other people - sometimes I succeed.  And, while I do it for myself and those I am fortunate enough to work with, I cannot deny the satisfaction I feel when others view my work positively. :)

I want to first thank the models who trusted in my vision and allowed me to create this piece:

:iconimmortal-yen: (Marie) and her friend, Jes - I couldn't have done it without both of you!

Secondly, I would like to thank those of you who suggested the DD,

:iconlifewitharedhead: :iconmiss-jae: :iconstory-ofmyeyes: :iconshadowelve: (and unnamed others)

And :iconnyx-valentine: for featuring it!

Lastly, I would like to thank all of the watchers, commenters and favoriters out there for supporting my work! :)

My first visit to this gallery, though I've run across your work elsewhere, I believe. The images you're displaying here are, of course, of exceptionally high calibre (IMHO), and figuratively drip with earmarks of your professional training and skill.

Some personal comments: I was impressed with every single model you've featured here. Don't really have a particular favorite, but it's clear some models work better for certain kinds of shots.

Also, I confess to being partial to the B/W work over color, not really for any compositional reason but because the added drama of relying solely on contrast seems to suit your photographer's eye really well.

Third, I thought I detected a much harder edge to your images when shibari, or even bondage props in general, were involved. I think that surprised me, because many of the professional nude-portrait artists I've encountered seem to get softer and rounder when their models take up ropes, but yours don't. They seem to absorb the additional cultural tension of ropes and gags into their posing. I liked that.

Among the images that really nailed me were the following: "Handle With Care," "What Do You See?" "Ava3," "Bound," "Casey Calvert 5," "Elizabeth 1," "Jessica 2," "Kari 8 (especially!)" "Sarah 6," and "Tiffany12." Many of these struck me because of something explicitly remarkable about the musculature or other posing aspects. So congrats on these.

A disappointment: the two straitjacket series just didn't click. I'm not sure why. Might be because the models seemed not to be into it very much, so the images themselves didn't carry any impact. But I'd encourage you to try again with a model more conducive to the prop. An SJ can be a really intense prop.

Anyway, loved being here, was worth every minute catching up through the 500+ images. And I look forward to returning.

Thank you very much for all of your comments!

It really makes my day when someone takes the time to look through everything as you have.

I still have the straightjacket and will definitely revisit this from time to time! :)

Nice to hear from you. I leave comments most typically when the artist has impressed me and I want to make that known. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

BTW: the spelling is:  "straitjacket" not "straightjacket" -- so named because the person wearing it has been put in a type of "strait" = a constriction.

To my great surprise, this is a spelling mistake that many people make. Forgive me for being so forward as to point it out to you.
