I am drawing close to being comfortable with photographing boudoir. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
 
Seriously – I have always been afraid of it because for so long its purpose was (generally) billed as either empowerment or “do something for your man.” I did not want to engage in that at all. The latter reason is easy – do something for your man? Leave him alone for like an entire weekend. Give him a case of Mountain Dew, a six pack of his favorite beer, some deep fried foods, a new video game and some sport thing on television. If you need to add in some act of intimacy – well, you don’t need my advice for that.
 
Empowerment. With respect (and open to hearing your thoughts) I do not believe that a heterosexual male photographer can ever step into the mental creative space of knowing a fraction of a second of what it is to be a female. Let alone how to embolden that inner power and express it, in whatever through line is key to the subject.
 
Simply put – boys can’t craft a photography session to empower women, because they have ZERO idea of what a woman deals with each day of their lives.  Yes you can have great interviews with the subject, great questionnaires, you can endeavor to speak the language. However at some point you (the heterosexual male) are going to fall back on your sexual preferences and it’s going to motivate the emotions you craft with the subject.

So why do I think I might be ready to capture boudoir photography now? Because I finally am comfortable enough to share the STORY of what I find sensual. What I find erotically powerful and THAT became the BRIDGE between my experiences and subject. I do not seek to empower them by knowing their body, their lives, their struggles. I seek to share their story of love, of passion, of heart break, of pleasure and all the awesome beauty found therein.

Such was my session with Kat. I weaved a narrative, a scene that she could play. I will share that full story as I share the final images (that I want to publicize) from our art-making, at a future date and it will be in my blog on my website. I will share the whole series of images, the whole story and why I think I’m ready to capture this beautiful art-form.

Boudoir Natural Light Photography by Reality Reimagined

On my recent photography adventures I had the fortune of photographing someone relatively new to my eyes, yet so incredibly impactful.
 
I first saw Autumn’s work, captured by my good friend Brad Campbell. They together created an amazing Star Wars composite piece of art with a fantastic makeup/face art being designed by Autumn as if it were “no big deal.”

I don’t care what you look like. I don’t care what you are wearing, how much money you have, whether you think you are beautiful or not – all I care about is the story I see in your eyes. THAT is where wisdom begins and true self-worth, value and art is found.
 
Her eyes held me transfixed for a good long while. It was then I knew that I had to work with her.

We captured three different looks on a long day of photography and each sequence, those eyes told a vastly different story. Mid way through our day I told Autumn “I could photograph you to the end of my days and still not be finished.” That is truth for me and respectful, honorable praise from one artist to another.

This is the first look we created – a natural light boudoir/glamour series and all I had to do was push the shutter on my camera, because Autumn did the work like it was “no big deal.”

Fantasy Fashion Photography by Reality Reimagined

I had recently had the privilege of working with a talent that I had followed for a number of years. The first piece of art I saw of Astrid’s work, there were wisps of that beautiful red golden hair, flying over her eyes and face as she stood out in nature toward the golden hour.

Her eyes were not fully visible through the strands of hair and that pulled me in

immediately from the next scroll of IG. When I found those eyes, there was a bountiful story there that made me want to not only see more of this series, but the artist that was weaving it.

We had no great concept in mind for our session, except that I wanted to capture imagery with a few elements of fashion, of fantasy, of good photography acumen and the rest just the joy of creating with brilliant artists. More to come from this series and the various looks we captured, but here is the first.

You’re Only As Good As The Talent You Work With – Boudoir Photography by Phoenix Photographer Reality Reimagined

Long ago a wonderful teacher told me “a director is only as good as the cast they work with.”

I believe that is true (to a degree) in almost all forms of art-making. It’s certainly true for this photographer when he works with Kat.

She’s truly remarkable and I believe it comes from the soul inside. In this industry, in this specific genre of photography (boudoir) we tend to judge the value of the subject by more surface elements that fit into the modern paradigm of “beauty.” I still believe that it comes from the soul and the eyes are the first page of that beautiful story. Thank you Kat for sharing that spirit with us all and I look forward to our next adventure.

Until We Meet Again: Halloween 2021 Horror Fantasy Art by Reality Reimagined

“You now know your future…”
The Beast breathed as she maneuvered her way back into the webs of fate. The price had been paid, unknowingly when I entered into this accursed “home.” I should have known. There is always a price when you seek that which is forbidden. Always a price.
“Leave this place and live your life to the fullest. Use the wisdom I have given you, to do as you wish. When Time comes for you, to end your travels, return here and fulfill the bargain. Until we meet again.”
