I believe that when we sense a living thing in full and undivided attention that it feels empowering. For instance the way some dogs and small children are so focassed on everything that they do and everything around them. In a photo people are so often distracted by the perceived result of the shot. However when a model lets go of the result and is in full attention in the moment I believe the power of the shot is greatly enhanced.
Muscle, Balance and Presence by Tonyr
Muscle, Balance and Presence
Shot from a recent fitness workshop. Feel the model here has a great balance with muscle and curve. Also that she is very emotionally present when the camera clicked. Being able to be this way is a great reflection of strength to me. So many people place so much pressure on results that they feel distracted and less than authentic. Especially in photography of this nature it is rare to sense someone being confident in the process and not becoming absorbed in the result. 
Genuine Warmth
Whilst the shapes of women's bodies are powerfully attractive I think that genuine warmth is what makes a shot stand out from the rest. In this image I believe that the model is enjoying the process and authentically warm when the shot was taken. This emanates a sense that we all pick up on whether we are conscious of it or not. So from a photographer's point of view much of our success depends upon how good we are at engaging a model in a way where they feel secure and composed.
Back to Basics by Tonyr
Back to Basics
This is a shot from a recent portfolio for the model. She requested this style of shot which is one for which i became well know in the 90's. So it is a return to my original gym/grunge style of shot.
Latino Passion
Shot of Neave from the July 18 art nude photography workshop. Not sure what nationality the model is however to me it feels very much like a passionate Latino look. This is both from her look but also from the depth of passion she seems to be connecting to. 
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.
