"The experience of freeform awakened a deeper sense of self love. I noticed how my confidence in my body and power had grown during and after the shoot and seeing the photographs."

"Images can hold a lot of power, and it’s pretty powerful looking at nude images and recognizing the gaze looking back at you is your own."

"Being vulnerable is hard but one thing I’ve learnt is that a lot of power can come from vulnerability. I loved the freeform experience, I love my photographs, and I love the feeling of knowing without a doubt that I am beautiful."

i was formally trained as a cinematographer and have been taking photos for ten years, etcetera etcetera.

but that ain't important.

during my travels to latin america in 2019, i was fortunate to meet very incredible women. some were friends, some were teachers, some were lovers. but it was clear that whether they were fresh out of university or far along their inner journey of self-discovery, most (if not all) struggled with body-image issues of varying severity. more than this, almost every woman had a story to tell about being a victim of the current gender power dynamics in our society.

 

how has humanity failed half of its population? how can it be that media thrives off stoking the fire of insecurity? how has one single, unachievable body type caused so much suffering?

a lot changed for me. i felt awkward existing as a man. i became aware of how i looked at women, even if it was just a glance. wolf-whistles stopped coming across as funny or 'normal'. for the first time, i began to wrap my head around what it must be like to be a woman in this world. 

i'm sure that a hipster with a man-bun won't solve one of the world's foremost issues by taking photos of (semi) nude women, but it has been unbelievably fulfilling to see the goddesses looking at the back of my camera with awe.

giving someone an experience that leaves them with a higher degree of self-love is something special for me.

i would be honoured to do the same for you. 

 

yes, you are gorgeous as you are.

yes, you are sexy as you are.

yes, your form can be free, in this very moment.
