Breathe of Fresh Air
Shot of Sass from my Jan 27 art nude workshop in Melbourne. The model Sass was so trusting and easy to work with. It is such a breathe of fresh air to work with someone who is not automatically guarded and on the defensive. We live in a world that is increasingly mis trusting and precious and in my opinion this is strangling much of the joy and creativity. Models like Sass allow the energy space to inspire in a very programmed society.
Enter at Own Risk
In my early days I used to create posters. This was one of my most successful titled 'Enter at Own Risk'. It was photographed by Eddie Javier as at the start I used to direct the model and employed photographers to set up the camera and click the shutter.
Subtle Presence
For about 15 years I made a living from photographing and publishing for my own calendars. Whilst the aesthetic look was very important there was often a subtle energy that set some shots off as against others. This particular model featured in several calendars and seemed to be able to access this subtle presence often.
I Wonder 2
This is a second pic from my first shoot with a transexual. Over the years some have suggested that many of the women I have photographed looked masculine yet the shots of these models have always been very popular. This shot has had no post processing other than desaturation. I believe that the model's aesthetics and mood are attractive and authentic. Also love the presence and authenticity you can sense throughout her whole body. Have decided to post this shot to encourage a discussion about aesthetics and other related topics.
Focassed Attention
This is a pic from my most recent art nude workshop in Melbourne. The model is stunning and has modelled various times for me before. Prior to this workshop I mentioned to her that often with people with her looks it is easy to snap away and think you have a great shot. However to my mind no shot is great without the model being engaged and present. So we paid specific attention to making sure that she was alert and focassed during the shoot. I believe that this attention has created a much broader range of inspiring images.
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.
