Environmental Portrait: Patrick Whitaker
Artist’s Statement: “One day a friend of mine and I were talking about photography and how fun it would be to spend the day taking photos together. As the conversation went on the subject of nudes in nature was also discussed. We both agreed that we would model for each other. Several days later we spent several hours shooting at a local park. The process was very relaxed and quite enjoyable. The following photos were the result of this afternoon. This was a collaborative piece of work between me, as the photographer and my friend, as the model. I sincerely believe the comfort shown by the model in the photos reflect our friendship, mutual respect, and love for photography.”
