People pose for artists for a variety of reasons. Some want to experience what it is like, others what to be part of the artists work and for some it is for far deeper and meaningful reasons. The models that pose for me are my friends and very few of them have posed nude before. Most come to sit for me because they love art and want to contribute to my work. I like to let the models choose their own poses and by doing so the imagery is different and more natural.
