I've procrastinated this one forever, but here we go:

www.modelmayhem.com/perkelix

Hopefully this will make it easier for interested models to find me. Currently, most of the pictures there feature nomadsorcerer as the model, but I'm probably gonna upload a few shots I recently made with other models, because these newer pictures show a dramatic improvement of my photographic skills.

Recently I've been taking loads of new pictures with several new models: my girlfriend's high school crush, an old friend who suddenly decided that she likes posing, a karate-loving friend with a really trim sporty body and wonderful breasts, etc. In a nutshell: I'm having a ball. There's only one problem: I still cannot make my mind up about which shots are worth uploading to DA and which ones are not.
Recently, I got around experiencing what it feels like for my models to be nude in front of the camera when nomadsorcerer asked me to bare it all for a whole series of Black & White pictures she needed as reference material to paint new paintings since, at the Art School where she studies, she specializes in anatomy drawing and, this time, she felt that she really could do a series of male nudes, for a change.

While I spontaneously volunteered, I kept on shivering at the thought for a number of days since, in the past, I had received so many disrespectful comments about my body ­- from both prospective sexual partners and from photographers whose male nudes I enjoyed and to whom I had cautiously volunteered as a model - that I had tons of apprehensions about how I would manage in front of the camera.

Looking back, accepting to model for her was the most liberating decision I've taken in ages:

After a few minutes of initial embarrassment about the erection that popped out of the blanket I was holding, I eventually found the guts to just proudly assume the boldest positions, without thinking twice about whether I projected the right image or not. Much to my surprise, it worked! While the signs of age indeed show on some of the pictures (heck, I ain't exactly as fresh and healthy as I was in my 20's...), I was still surprised to find that I can look damn sexy in front of the camera, in more ways than I imagined, from the classical Greek statue poses to the more corny gay calendar styles - all within the space of a single afternoon of shooting.

In a nutshell, despite feeling so old and worn-out, I discovered that I can actually look good. It's not just a major ego-booster, it's also a fantastic experience to feel what my models feel and to come out of it feeling so much more positive about a million things.

nomadsorcerer and I have been dating since April. While we haven't met via DA, our first intention was to have her model for me and she indeed does. The wonderful surprise was to find a soulmate in her. I've been in photo and sex heaven ever since!

I took a HUGE amount of pictures in the space of a few sessions and I'm really satisfied with the results; she really knows how to flirt with the camera and, as long as I remember to take my tripod with me, I know how to capture the moment quite nicely.

However, there is one problem: I cannot seem to make up my mind about which pictures to upload to DA, because there's too many good shots to choose from! HELP!!!

Harsh reactions to an appropriate, polite and sincere ad I had posted on another site, offering models who travel via Helsinki or Tallinn a place to stay during their visit, in exchange for modeling time, made me ponder why society has become so fucked up as to systematically assume that a heterosexual man who 1) practices nude photography as a hobby and 2) offers the visiting model a place to crash during her stay, is obviously using this as a pretext to get laid? Yet, if gays or lesbians offer their peers a place to crash, nobody will raise an eyebrow or scream THIS IS NOT A DATING SITE at them, ever. Why is that?
It appears that my traveling schedule will be more quiet this month, so I figured that I would welcome early spring sunshine by trying new models.

I welcome females who simply want to try themselves at modeling or amateurs who want to add material to their existing portfolio.

I'm especially interested in models who can contribute their own ideas for the shootings e.g. interesting locations, unusual settings, funny props, creative poses, etc.

Models will receive digital copies of all photos taken during the session, with permission to use them as they like. No other compensation is offered. Selected photos will be published on my deviantART account, accompanied with links to the model's deviantART account or to another site of her choice.

If you are interested and are currently around Helsinki or Tallinn (or in other cities where I frequently travel e.g. Ankara, Istanbul) , please drop me a line.
I am really starting to love Anatolia!

This time, I was one of the organizers of Estonia's first delegation to Turkey. So many hilarious things happened during this trip that I really don't know where to begin. Suffice it to say that there's a good reason why I got myself a Türk Hava Yolları frequent flyer card; I am SO going back there ASAP!

During this trip, I took a lot of pictures that would fall into the photojournalistic category. I uploaded a few of those here, just for the heck of it, since they came out a LOT better than those I took of visiting Turkish journalists in Tallinn during February.
I had been meaning to return to nude photography for a while, especially since recently hosting a CS guest with particularly delicious hips and a fantastic tattoo all over her back - a combination that I found particularly inspiring.

Except that I ended up shooting Turkish journalists and the Estonian prime minister, instead. Great shots, but at pointlessly high ISO, because I had distractedly left my IXUS at that setting after some candlelight shots.

*sigh*
I just came back from the Baltic Hospitality Gathering that took place in Vilnius, Lithuania, during the weekend. It was the best time I had in a long time. Despite the pouring rain, we had a lot of fun doing a rally in the old town and trying folk dances from Lithuania and nearby Latvia. I also met a lot of really nice people.

It's on days like these that I really appreciate time spent away from computers and closer to people who simply enjoy life and creative activities.
Honey! I'm hooooooooome! :-P

Yes, I'm back in Turkey for one week.

I'm in Istanbul this weekend, then in Ankara on Monday and Tuesday.

Wednesday and Thursday are still open: either checking out Izmir or back to Istanbul.

It would be fun to meet local deviants (especially models)! :)
Juste une semaine et déjà le retour à la maison... :(

Görüşürüz! :bye:
Eylül'ün 19-25 Istanbul'da istiyorum.
Well, August was a lot more fun than July:

* Traveled with CS friends to Saaremaa and Hiiumaa.
* Accomplished a lot at work and enjoyed it.

I also met a really cute girl who found all my buttons within the space of a couple of minutes, which felt awesome, and got me feeling all mushy inside, except that the feeling wasn't mutual: she loved the kisses and the caresses, but simply wasn't attracted to me... I sometimes wonder why I even bother?
Well, things didn't exactly turn the way I had planned:

* No time to visit Saulkrasti Jazz.
* No news from Sproutbau.
* Lots of people from CS and elsewhere contacting me about meeting up, but not following-up on their offer and essentially vanishing into thin air.
* Plenty of promising encounters that went nowhere. :(

Well, at least, August is shaping up to be warm and sunny. :)

Any ideas where I could spend it along the Baltic coastline? I love the vibes there, but it already seems like I have seen everything that can be seen in the Baltics.
The way my summer is shaping up so far:

* Visiting the Saulkrasti Jazz Festival and other events in Latvia at the end of July.

* Spending part of August at the Sproutbau in Bremen.

* Trying to meet various friends from CouchSurfing and Draugiem everywhere.

* Definitely looking forward to trying new models in all those places.

How's your summer shaping up?

Spending a month in a country I haven't visited in 9 years. Enjoying plenty of Poutine. Guess where I am?

Deviants from here who wanna meet up, please get in touch. Anything from showing me around town or going for a drink to modeling for me is welcome.
I want to shoot photos in the New Nude style popularized by Petter Hegre, Gregori Galitsin, Sergei Goncharov, Max Asolo, etc.

I'm especially interested in models who contribute their own ideas for the shooting e.g. interesting locations, unusual settings, funny props, creative poses, etc.

Renumeration is TFP/CD.

Selected photos will be published on my deviantART account, accompanied with a link to the model's deviantART account or to another site of her choice.

If you are interested and are currently around Helsinki or Tallinn (or visiting this area soon), drop me a line via DA.
Adhara Batul adharabatul.deviantart.com/ is a gorgeous nude model who recently moved to Singapore for work. Because of Singapore's extremely strict morality laws, her nude modeling is temporarily on hold. However, she is currently putting some of her audience's work as DA features, as a way to keep her account actively usefull. Check her out!
