The Tattoo series

This year I successfully completed the first level of the Photography Society of New Zealand (PSNZ) honours system. In 2017 I began working on the second level which requires me to submit a portfolio of 12 images on a theme.

Despite not having myself I have always admired the art of tattoos, as most of the models that I shoot have them. I decided that I want to profile them in my portfolio, and embarked on recruiting models.

After starting the set I had a change of direction, and have moved the portfolio to a different theme however I still wish to continue building a tattoo series.

The images do not need to be fully nude but I would like them to really profile your best art. I would also like to bring something about the person in the image.

There will be no payment for the subjects, however in return for helping me out I will provide all subjects with a 8×12 inch print of a single image as well as copies of other digital files.

If you are interested in helping out with this project please contact me on or call me on 021 644418.

You can see see the shots taken in the series so far by choosing tattoo as the subject.
