Bruce Walker lives and works in Ontario, Canada. He describes himself as a retired IT guy who picked up a digital camera for some serious shooting 11 years ago, fell in love with studio portraiture two years later and then discovered the joy of the nude in 2013.
“I was originally introduced to photography through film cameras when I was a teenager, but I abandoned it then because the ponderous process failed to keep my interest.
I am a concept-driven designer at heart, pre-visualising scenes that I attempt to recreate in the studio, incorporating sets, props and models. Lately I have also been exploring spontaneous improvisational projects, most recently working in window light with a visual artist and a custom tilt/shift lens for some crazy Pictorialist magic.
I believe that I reveal a point-of-view that’s in touch with a more feminine side of my personality. I’m still discovering what moves me, including classical posed art nudes, subtly erotic portraits and elaborate, experimental concepts.”
We are featuring one of Bruce’s recent B&W art nude shoots with model Araina Nespiak.
I also wanted to share a couple of colour outtakes from the same shoot that Bruce had sent through – even though they did not fit with the B&W theme of the main shoot, I think these images are equally beautiful and very natural…
