This is a shot from a recent art nude workshop I ran here in Australia. I am forever using the term presence during these workshops. It relates to people being passionate and in the moment with what they are doing. All too often models and people in general are distracted by a range of thoughts and feelings that block their ability to flow and generate passion. Caitlin, the model here is a rarity in that she genuinely enjoys it when she models. As such she is so easy and inspiring to work with. I believe that this can be both seen and felt within the shot.
Blue Jeans
Have always loved faded blue jeans on women. This shot was inspired by a calendar shot I did about 10 years ago and was photographed as part of an art nude photography workshop I run in Melbourne.
This is a pic from a fitness workshop that I run in Melbourne Australia. The model is a fitness compeditor who over the past 15 months has transformed her body. Just shows that when we desire something that dedication can create quick and powerful changes.
Defined Lines
I have always been drawn to women with curves and defined lines. Whilst some are born with genetics that reflect these features the majority follow balanced diets and exercise programmes to achieve the beautiful aesthetics depicted here.
Engaged Trust
This is a shot from a recent art nude workshop. I had never met the model before and she had to pose in front of 4 students and myself. As soon as she entered the studio you could feel that she was a person who trusted herself and as such we all felt secure and relaxed in her presence. This makes an enormous difference as so few people trust these days and you can sense it even if they don't make it physically obvious. Also a person who isn't feeling a need to protect or prove themselves is best able to bring full attention to what they are engaged in in that moment. Hence the look from the model is very powerful,direct and free from background distraction.
Thought it was time to do an update on my photographic workshops. Running them every 2 weeks in Melbourne and every few months in Sydney. Also prepared to take them anywhere in Australia or overseas if the interest is there. I love the aesthetics and essence of people and the workshops help others to bring the best out of their subjects in both aspects. Classes are open to any level of experience and are run in a very relaxed manner. You can check out videos, testimonials and pictures on the workshop section of my personal website


Tony Ryan
Have been on Deviant for a few years now and really enjoying it. I am a photographer and writer based in Australia. Adore women's bodies and also the essence of people. Try to present words and images that inspire. These days am not doing as much commercial work as I used to. However am running workshops in Melbourne and sometimes Sydney that help photographers to pose and connect with models. Also please note that all of the shots in my portfolio are natural and without air brushing.
