Welcome to the first issue of Pocket Nudes. For those who don't know me, my name is Tyler Keeler and I am the photographer, writer, and with the help of Blurb, the publisher of this series, which features my fine art nude photography.
I have been photographing the nude since 2004 and I have a rather extensive colletion of images, most of which have never been published or displayed. This series, which I intend to publish on a weekly basis, is designed to let some of those "neglected" images see the light of day to be appreciated by those who enjoy my work.
Each issue will showcase 10 images from a single photo shoot. As the series progresses, you will see that I have some favorite models, several of whom have become my close friends. Creating a beautiful photograph of someone is always a collaborative process, and I would definitely be remiss if I didn't recognize the beauty and talents of the women I have had the pleasure of photographing. Without them, I would not be able to create my art.
For this first issue I have chosen a photo shoot done in June, 2007 with 2 models: Amanda and my good friend Elisabeth. The shoot was done at 2 locations in Virgina on a beautiful early summer day.
I hope you enjoy this first issue!
