Thomas Bichler

“I’m developing (product-) concepts, writing texts and taking photographs for tourism projects, publishers, agencies, tourism cooperations and fashion labels.

I have also been working on fine art nude photography (at the Bodensee) for the last 15 years. My speciality is black and white photography with a touch of surrealism. I prefer carefully selected outdoor locations, often near Lake Constance, in the Alps or at the Baltic Sea. My images have been featured in a some exhibitions in the past years and where published in calendars, books and magazines. Camera clubs may feel free to get in contact for talks, lectures and/or tutorials about nude art and/or black and white photography.

If you would like to work with me, you should bring time, inspiration and understanding for the topic, have acting talent and be acrobatic. Fine art nude photography is my kind of meditation, which represents an opposite pole to my usually everyday working life, without any stress, hectic or compromises.”_Thomas Bichler

Gregory Prescott

“He who shines the light that reflects off the skin, intricately created masterpieces, one by one, with much detail like fingers to touch, eyes to see and lips to kiss. He who shines the light gave her breast to feed, feet to walk the land and a tongue to taste the fruit that dangle from the branches that sway to the breeze from his breath. Our bodies are the testimony of the first creation of art. We wear the light like it is a robe. And I reveal to you the true beauty that I see. We are the result of his fine art. My models become the earth, the emotional Ocean, sensuous exotic creatures, tempting forbidden fruit.

I use my camera like a paintbrush, to create beautiful images of the male and female form. My mission is to diversify the cultural spectrum in fine art photography, with classic and timeless pieces.

I am an emerging, self-taught photographer residing in Brooklyn, NY, whom has spent the majority of my life in Houston, TX and Los Angeles, CA. My work consists of an array of photographs of portraits, humans adorned and the human form. I find it interesting to create art using live figures. With my work, I allow everyone to see the true and outstanding beauty of a woman’s curves, the fullness of her lips, the textures of her hair and the grace in the extensions of her arms. I also display the broadness in the man’s back, the signs of struggle in his shoulders and the determination in his eyes. In my photographs, one may witness the essence, sensuality, strong structure and power of the body with the use of passion but without the use of excessive sexuality. I hope that with my photographs, people should be able to further extend their appreciation of the beauty and body of both men and women and see that all people are sensual creatures; sensual creatures with a vast array of skin tones. My photographs have successfully embraced both the inner and outer beauty of men and women. 
GOD is the true artist. I am the channel.”- Gregory Prescott

Robert Mapplethorpe

Robert Mapplethorpe was born in 1946 in Floral Park, Queens. Of his childhood he said, “I come from suburban America. It was a very safe environment and it was a good place to come from in that it was a good place to leave.”

In 1963, Mapplethorpe enrolled at Pratt Institute in nearby Brooklyn, where he studied drawing, painting, and sculpture. Influenced by artists such as Joseph Cornell and Marcel Duchamp, he also experimented with various materials in mixed-media collages, including images cut from books and magazines. In 1969, he and Patti Smith, whom he had met three years earlier, moved into the Chelsea Hotel. Mapplethorpe acquired a Polaroid camera in 1970 from artist and filmmaker Sandy Daley and began producing his own photographs to incorporate into the collages, saying he felt “it was more honest.”

In 1986, he was diagnosed with AIDS. Despite his illness, he accelerated his creative efforts, broadened the scope of his photographic inquiry, and accepted increasingly challenging commissions. The Whitney Museum of American Art mounted his first major American museum retrospective in 1988, one year before his death in 1989.

His vast, provocative, and powerful body of work has established him as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Today Mapplethorpe is represented by galleries in North and South America and Europe and his work can be found in the collections of major museums around the world. Beyond the art historical and social significance of his work, his legacy lives on through the work of the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. He established the Foundation in 1988 to promote photography, support museums that exhibit photographic art, and to fund medical research in the fight against AIDS and HIV.”

Caitlyn Clester

Originally from Southern California, where she completed her AA in Art History, Caitlyn currently resides in Portland Oregon, where she has received her BFA in Photography at Pacific Northwest College of Art, and is currently finishing her MA in Critical Theory at PNCA’s Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies.

Caitlyn Clester is an interdisciplinary artist working with the mediums of photography, installation, performance, sculpture, and video. Her work focuses on experiences of sexual assault, trauma, and the process of healing and recovery from violences inflicted onto the body. Her current inquiry lies within how coping mechanisms become violent, and how attempting to construct safety from the outside world, from others touch, inevitably dismisses how that outside world has harbored ones personal perpetuation of violence onto their own bodies.

Caitlyn has been exhibited in many group shows around the Coachella Valley, Portland, and contributed to various art magazines through both editorials and interviews. She has curated an exhibition in Portland, OR in 2017, and has also won the Photography Council Award from the Palm Springs Art Museum in 2016.

Annie Leibovitz

In an interview Annie Leibovitz said, “I wanted to be a journalist. I love Life magazine, I think I have a journalistic streak in me, when you take a picture you want to tell a story. But I felt there was a lot more latitude in portraiture and you could be conceptual. I felt I had a stronger voice with a point of view. 

I think at this point of my life, I feel I’m more a conceptual artist using photography more than I’m a photographer. Photography is big, there are lots of ways to use it. 

When you take a still or a portrait, there is a sense of intimacy if they don’t have their clothes on. Mick Jagger in the 1970s, you couldn’t imagine him with his shirt on, it wasn’t such a big deal not having clothes on. It’s just part of portraiture.”

Andy Hunger

“Photography is an intense form of vision for me. A photograph is an
objective form of memory, a nude or portrait photograph is the mirror of
the visual encounter with a human being. A successful mixture of light
play, technique, creativity and the mood of the moment make a photo worth seeing and interesting for the viewer. The aim of my nude photography is not the portrayal of nudity as such, but a successful composition of light and shadow, personality and individual expression of the model. Through very extravagant posing or pure symmetry as well as spontaneous creativity of the team model photographer, I succeed time and again to find new forms and expressions in nude photography.”_Andy Hunger
