The DeltaGamma Interview: an erotic artist opens up...

If you've a member of Sexart (or Metart or The Life Erotic) you're most likely familiar with the photographer known as DeltaGamma. As I write, the artist has published 126 erotic photo galleries across the three sites — 39 at Sexart, 67 at Metart, and 20 at The Life Erotic — and he's earned an enthusiastic and vocal fan following. The fact that he's also an active participant in the comment sections has only added to his popularity and reputation — DeltaGamma isn't content simply to create a photo set, he's also keenly interested in the way it's received by the audience.

As it happens, my first contact with DeltaGamma was in the comments section at the Metart blog. After chatting, online and off, I suggested we do an interview. He agreed, I prepared an extensive list of questions, and then things got complicated. In the interview that follows DeltaGamma discusses his background, his inspiration and evolution as an artist, and the unforeseen event that profoundly effected his career as an erotic photographer. And what's included here is only part of the DeltaGamma story, Part 2 of the interview will appear here in the near future.

First of all, why "DeltaGamma," what's the significance of the name?

D: I simply picked the initials of my real name from the Greek alphabet, as a tribute to the classic beauty concept developed in ancient Greece, the reference and inspiration for my earliest work and my art in general. The name I used when I started with nude photography was actually "DeltaVenus," which was inspired by the novel "Delta of Venus" written by Anaïs Nin, and later adapted as a movie that was directed by Zalman King and released in 1995.

What's your background?

D: I was born in a small seaside city on the eastern coast of central Italy, forty years ago. Since then I have lived in several different Italian towns, from the north to the south of the country, and now I'm living in Rome. I attended an international Art Academy after showing some unusual drawing skills when I was very young, at the primary school, where I had also started studying English. And I attended a scientific high school, studying not only scientific subjects but also philosophy, Latin, and the arts. I can't go too deep in details about my life and my "regular" job since it's outside the world of photography and very far from erotic art, but I can say that I've worked for twenty years in a very professional and challenging environment that has allowed me to travel a lot and learn many different skills, meet many people from all over the world — including my wife — and learn to adapt myself to different situations, react quickly, and plan my activities efficiently. I would describe myself as a self-made, happy and lucky man, an artist, a photographer, a traveler, a biker, a sailor in love with the beauty of this world and the beauty of women.

What first got you interested in the artistic potential of photography?

D: Back in 2000, during the longest of my travels — an unforgettable experience spending six months at sea — I had brought with me a photo camera. At the time I had been on a break from oil painting due to lack of time and therefore inspiration, and in a way approaching photography awakened my inspiration again. Photography perfectly integrated my paintings and drawings, which were already oriented towards the search for harmony and beauty in reality without too much intermediation/manipulation of forms and colors, but rather a realistic interpretation of existing subjects, which were mainly female nudes.

How long had you been working as a photographer before you began to shoot nudes?

D: The beginning of my career as a photographer could actually be identified with shooting nudes, except for the very first steps when I transitioned from drawing/painting to shooting photos. I learned the basics of photography by myself, trying to catch the subject the way it was in my mind already before taking the picture, according to my own personal vision coming from my artistic path and from observing other photographers' work.

I started using my first photo cameras in 2000 and I got my first DSLR — a Canon EOS 350D — in 2007. In my early years I shot mainly reportages of my travels and then I started shooting portraits/glamour with a Czech girl I met in my hometown during her summer holidays with her parents. That's probably when my special feeling towards Czech girls and their country started. I went there many times, first in 1992 on a school  trip to Prague — soon after the country's first democratic elections after the fall of the Berlin wall — and I was fascinated by the beauty of the town and its unique atmosphere, and a few years later also by the beauty of the local girls, my favorite subjects for my nudes.

I shot my first amateur art nudes in 2003 with an Italian girl I met on a train, then I started with soft erotic shootings in a couple of workshops in Venice  in 2006, and then in 2007 I finally started with my first semi-professional erotic shootings in Czech Republic and Poland — both countries I was familiar with due to my several trips riding my motorbike in the summer across central-eastern Europe.

You started contributing photo sets to Metart in early 2012, later that year you began contributing work to Sexart, and to The Life Erotic in 2013. Had you published any of your erotic photography before your work for the Metart Network?

D: Publishing my work at Metart had always been my aspiration since the beginning of my erotic shootings and I never really thought of submitting to any other website. Although my very first exposure to soft nudes was with Playboy magazine — I bought my first issue in August 1990 — my view of erotic nudes was shaped and influenced by Metart some years later. I had created my first e-mail account in 2000 and a few months later I subscribed to the Metart newsletter, soon after discovering the site. I remember I saved all the 16 preview images of the featured sets and was amazed by the beauty of models and their erotic attitude captured by the perfect photography. Metart has been my leading influence in erotic photography and one of the biggest influences on my erotic vision.

My early erotic work was closer to The Life Erotic's style in terms of lighting and models' facial expressions, then evolved towards Sexart's main features in a way, while I was still a bit distant from the average Metart style, with crystal clear images and brighter lighting and models smiling and in a happy mood.

Paradoxically I started publishing on Metart first, with "Presenting" Grace C, then Sexart with Mia Sollis,  and finally on The Life Erotic, also with Mia.

I only decided to give publishing a try in 2010, when I sent my first submissions to Metart. After the first feedback (good work/style but models not interesting or already published) I let some time go by, then tried again in 2011 with a few other submissions which were not interesting enough, and then finally had my first sets published in April 2012, with Grace C.

In the summer of 2011 I actually collaborated with a Metart photographer who got in touch with me, Peter Guzman. We arranged a few combined shoots to share costs and models, and I integrated some of his sets with Edwige A, As well as Mia Sollis, and Marjana A.

By the end of the summer 2011 I decided to start shooting and submitting alone, and I started with Mia Sollis and Edwige, two of the models I knew better.

Back to the question: I have actually thought of expanding  and publishing my work on other erotic websites, especially when I didn't have many sets released on the Metart Network. But recently, when I had my work released on a more frequent basis, I started thinking to be loyal to the Network for a number of reasons. One of them is that I consider Metart the top erotic website, the first and only for me, which keeps evolving in a thoughtful way, taking into account ideas and suggestions by members. The other reason has to do with a fact which happened this summer and made me reconsider several things in my life and my career, I'll explain later.

Metart, Sexart, and TLE each have a distinct, unique style, focus, and format. Your work has appeared on all three sites. How do you adjust your style and approach when you're shooting for Metart as compared to TLE, or TLE compared to Sexart?

D: When I shoot a model for Metart my main goal is to simply bring out the model's beauty and her happiness of showing her intimate beauty to the viewer, connecting with him, using a location and a lighting that match this overall feel, possibly in a simple and not too distracting setting. The focus is on the model's beauty and sensuality. One of the first sets embodying this aesthetic feel is my first with Mia Sollis, Voile, which was also reviewed by you in the Metart blog,  and that's where I actually started exchanging comments with some members back in February 2013.

For my TLE work, if we speak about open legs style, the focus is not only on beauty and sensuality but also on a more intriguing side of the model's mood, or  a fetish such as shaving, sometimes combined with the silver mirror insertions, like the one with Tess B, along  with an overall "darker" feel given by the lighting, with lower intensity and higher contrast, making the setting look a bit more undefined and mysterious, like in my first set with Mia Manarote.

For TLE masturbation, and some fetish sets, the model also has to appear involved in the erotic action showing her sexuality in an almost dramatic way, the darker side of her erotic potential, pretending to be aware that someone is watching hidden in sort of a voyeuristic situation.

For Sexart I ask my models to "make it real." Once I show them the setting and the outfit I tell them what the story is about and to believe in it, acting in a continuous action as if I was shooting a video, so that the flow of the action looks more natural, only stopping for the single shot. I also ask them to pretend I am not there and to concentrate on their own pleasure in a natural/realistic way, without exaggerating with facial expressions, but they're allowed to glance at the camera from time to time, when they feel like or when I tell them to do it, in order to keep the contact with the viewer and remind him that the action is for him and also to give a flirty taste to some headshots which I include to let the viewer see what's in the eyes of the model while feeling the pleasure. One of the most satisfying sets is my second with Sapphira.

Have you ever shot something for, say, Metart, but then ended up submitting it to Sexart, instead?

D: When I plan a shooting with some model in a certain location of course I already have an idea of what site I'm going to submit it to. If I had to give a priority that would be Metart, Sexart, TLE for a number of reasons, and this also reflects the number of sets. But sometimes when I am actually shooting it happens that some factors make me change my mind and switch to a style suitable for a site which is different from the initial idea. But it also happened that after taking a look at the photos before editing I realize that the overall feel of a certain set is more suitable for another site, but that's possible from Metart to TLE, or from Sexart to TLE, seldom vice-versa (for lighting reasons) and never from Metart to Sexart (because of the poses/style). Once, after initially scheduling a Metart shooting with some models who had never done masturbation in photos, we ended up giving a try to a Sexart or TLE set (none of these sets has yet been published). And I've submitted sets to Metart and Sexart but then it was suggested I submit them to TLE because the photo editor found the set or the model more suitable for that site, like in the case of the first sets with Paula Shy, Sunshine, and Chloe Coco, and there are a few more.

In the studio or on location — which do you prefer?

D: I generally prefer to shoot indoor with a soft natural light from the window and a realistic setting, because I have everything in control, the ambience is relaxed  with some good music, and posing is generally more comfortable for the model.

I set up a small studio in my old apartment, with a few backdrops in front of a big window, so I could use it either with natural light or with studio light, or combining the two. I have in mind my own private studio for the future, it would be halfway between a painter's and a photographer's studio, with plenty of natural white light during the day.

When the weather is nice and the temperature warm enough for the models, I have a nice location nearby that's also a great option to go shooting outdoor, but it depends also on how happy the model is, because posing is usually not as comfortable as indoor, then there may be some interruptions for various reasons — the lighting conditions may change more dramatically than indoor, then there may be some logistic issues that could distract from me from focusing on the model and the posing.

But basically it's the light of the moment that inspires me and drives me.

A typical set has about 120 images, give or take. How many total images do you shoot during a single session? And how do you approach the task of editing a set for submittal? 

D: I usually shoot 160-200 images, depending on the model's skills/attitude (beginner/experienced, willing/bored) and the lighting conditions (affecting shutter speed, therefore risk of motion blur). When I have the feeling I have at least 130-140 good images I check quickly on the display the variety of poses and if I think it's enough I stop. But there are times when the model is so good that I just can't stop, when we are both in good mood and the poses keep coming different and sexy. I know that I am not going to use all of the images but I can't help, I still shoot for the fun of it. And I also like to show the model many nice pics of herself, especially portraits.

I start editing the set usually after my regular job, at night, or in the weekends, when I am not too tired. I take a look at the whole set, deleting the bad pictures, separating the repetitive shots, and selecting the good images, usually no less than 120. Then I work on the RAW files, starting to give the image the light temperature/tone that best matches the model, the setting and the feel of the set.

My wife Phi — a member suggested this nickname, the ancient Greek letter for "F," because it's the initial of her real name — is there for this phase. She both helps me find the right settings — sometimes it gets too subjective, especially when the lighting during the shooting varied — and she also does most of the editing herself, especially when the photos also need to be retouched. I prefer not to retouch unless it's necessary to comply to the standards of photography on Metart or other sites in the Network. So there are tattoos to get rid of and skin imperfections to fix, as well as details in the setting which are not nice to be seen, in order to make the image look pleasant and eliminate unnecessary small details distracting from the main subject. This phase, for the most complicated sets, can even take up to two or three days for just one set.

Lately, as you may have noticed, my sets have become larger. I've started to extract some images that inspire me for artistic black and white and desaturated color treatments. These are usually images that normally would look like repetitions or be too serious in the set, but that are good for a different image style. I also include close-ups and interesting details. I decided to add these shots as a bonus to a standard set, because I felt the need to let the viewer see the model in other ways, like I do whenever I shoot, trying to imagine the photos in different styles as if they were different techniques of painting or drawing.

It's still kind of an experiment for me, especially if you consider that I started working on black and white and desaturated images not so long before including this type of work in my sets, although B&W is very close to pencil and charcoal drawing, which are one of my favorite techniques.

Members seemed to have appreciated enthusiastically so far, so I consider it kind of a trademark and even if it takes time to do it I will keep doing it willingly. The first set where I included some extra images was my first with Michaela Isizzu, although it was mostly some plain black and white backstage images, so actually the very first attempt was with one of my sets with Sunshine, also reviewed by you in the blog.

All your work for the various sites in the Metart Network have been still galleries. Do you have any interest in shooting motion pictures?

D: I would really love to start shooting movies. I did shoot a few videos with my DSLR a couple of years ago, but I haven't edited them, and anyway I don't consider them good enough yet. I have also shot some backstage video for fun. Videos are very challenging, and I think I have the eye to shoot them, but at the moment it's a matter of time: I am working too hard to have the time to start shooting and reaching a satisfactory level, and I would need more time to edit the videos, too. I always have a very thoughtful approach when it's about starting something I really care about, but then when I start I work very hard and it's difficult to stop me. You can consider the wish of starting to shoot videos my resolution for 2015.

You had a severe misfortune last summer — all your photographic gear and the laptop with your latest work was stolen. How did you recover from this devastating blow, and has this experience changed anything in your approach to shooting?

D: The theft of all my gear last July was a real shock. Now, so many months later, I still think about the few seconds when I was distracted by a man crying out and running to me as someone grabbed my backpack with everything inside and ran away.

I had just come back from one of my most successful shootings in Prague, four days of hard work with Sapphira, Nici Dee, Vanessa Angel, Paula Shy, Dido A, Celeste A and a couple of other models, shooting about twenty-five sets, mostly for Metart and Sexart, and a few for TLE. In few seconds I lost everything: my photo/video gear, my laptop, the hard disks and memory cards with all the work, making the time and expenses for the entire trip a total waste. I saw the robbery on the CCTV the day after, and it was very hard to take. I stayed in bed for a couple of days, trying to get some sleep, staring at the ceiling, hoping to have some news from the police or from friends searching the markets, or from Internet, but nothing.

I stopped being a photographer for some days, suspended in a very uncomfortable situation, but already the day of the misfortune things started happening: my wife let my closest friends know about the robbery, she even wrote to [Metart Network Photo Editor] K to let her know what had happened, and then a post on Facebook kick-started the reaction of some of my most loyal fans, especially from the US, supporting and offering help, easing the shock and giving me back self-confidence little by little. My "Number One" fan in particular also alerted [Metart Network owners] Jon and Niko about the theft. In a very short time I was offered an incredible amount of support by Metart which allowed me to get back to shooting with new gear and with an appropriate budget.

In the end, although that was a very hard lesson for me, it turned out to be also an important occasion which showed me how much Jon and all the Metart staff believed in me and in my work, as well as an opportunity to find real friends from the community of regular commentators, especially from Metart. It felt like belonging to an extraordinary family. Now I am in touch with several members of this great community on a regular basis, we speak about a range of things besides erotic photography, and it's all so fun and interesting.

The first sets released right after this disaster were with Connie Carter, first on TLE, and then on Sexart, followed by Lauren Crist on Metart, which kept me "alive" on the Network and made me experience the unexpected, incredible support from the members through the comments. I would like to thank all of them for giving me strength during those hard days.

I have also started being in touch with other Metart Network photographers, like Catherine, Luca Helios and Flora, after already being friends with Peter Guzman, Ken Tavos and Balius. I think that the exchange of ideas and points of view between artists is very fruitful, bringing the overall level of the entire Metart Network higher and higher, while the interaction with members keeps the Network evolving and facing the new challenges of modern erotic still and motion pictures.

This experience made me rethink all of my work and reconsider everything I did so far, being more aware of the actual value of all the equipment and the work itself, therefore giving more value to the efforts I do to carry out a shooting and produce a set.Venice panorama at sunset by Deltagamma

I've cross-posted this over at the Metart blog. Same text, but I used some different (DeltaGamma) art...have a look at: http://blog.met-art.com/erotic-photographers/deltagamma-interview-erotic-artist-opens/

And to all those who have thanked me for the interview...thank *you* and thanks also to DeltaGamma who did such an amazing job of responding to my questions. A true "MetArtist" and a class act, as well!

Another Thank you Adam.. it's great to be both on the Sex and the Met blogs with our work.
Now we must equal part 1 with an even more interesting part 2, which will be focused more on the style and philosophy of my work and mostly speak about my relationship with models and the interaction with members.

I had hoped to be able to comment on this interview much quicker but I see my fellow colleagues have already brilliantly described how grateful we as fans are for all the time you invest in responding to our questions and opinions.

Adam and Davi, this was without any doubt the most fascinating text I ever read on MetArt! Apart from answering all the questions I would have raised myself it gives an intriguing insight how these photo sessions are executed and even more so, it provides a very interesting and personal background of you Davi and your artistic development as a photographer and where you intend to head in the future. Even if you would be just half as good in your quest to shoot motion pictures we can for sure, with your artistic eye, expect miracles in the future!

I was really struck by how tremendous much of work you spend on every single published set but also a bit surprised to read that many never even end up being published which means you as a photographer take a huge financial risk for every model shoot you make - I hope the beautiful models are well paid for their time and effort!

Even if I read about it before it was very disturbing again to read about the devastating theft last summer and I clearly understand what a terrible blow it must have been for you. As a viewer it’s also very sad to know what fantastic sets we will never be able to see (for my own part I especially mourn what was lost with my favourite girl, Sapphira) – it’s same feeling you might get by thinking of all the musical masterpieces we were deprived of due to the too early deaths of Mozart, Mendelsohn, Chopin or why not your own countryman, Donizetti. By the way, was the data encrypted? If not, it’s strange none of these pics have surfaced on the internet – isn’t it? - have they...?

After this incredible first part of interview I’m obviously very keen to read the second part so almost as exciting as waiting for a next album with ones favourite girl!

Bravo - and thanks Davi and Adam!

Hi vC, it took a while to reply to the comments but I couldn't miss to tell you how much I appreciated your own comment.
Having produced this content with Adam and seeing how much you found it interesting really makes me (and him I guess) so very proud and satisfied for reaching our goal.
About the risks of paying the sets in advance I must say that lately I have a more guarantees than at the beginning, and in the end it all depends on the quality of the work and the models themselves, whom by the way are always paid fairly and also get more work after appearing on the Network because they become famous.
Thank you for your empathy about the misfortune, I still think about the loss of those sets because I was really satisfied about them, but I have the feeling I will be able to try repeat the same conditions in the same location and with the same models and maybe the inspiration will follow. It will never be the exactly the same thing but it's the best I can do and it will have a special meaning. It's not a surprise that photos haven't been used, thieves only cared about the material value of what they stole, not very sophisticated criminals.
Since you are also curious to read part 2... I will try to deliver it soon so Adam can post it shortly. I hope it will be as interesting as part 1.
Thank you for appreciating!

Why I am such a fan of Davi (AKA DeltaGamma):

It will come as no surprise to any members who have followed comments on Davi's sets here and on MA (and now with the "new" format, TLE) that I am one of the most enthusiastic of Davi's fans. I consider myself a partisan of his and I think there are certain very important reasons.

The first and foremost is probably the extraordinary investment of time and effort he made in establishing relationships with the members in the comments section on MA and now on SA and TLE. Not only does he offer his own insights and backgrounds to explain something interesting about the set that we'd never know just looking at the set, but he also takes the time and effort to answer virtually all the member comments, even over the span of a week. I'm not saying no other artists do the same thing, but Davi is in a small group of artists who put forth the effort and time to establish actual relationships with us, along with others such as Catherine, Rylsky, Flora, Arkisi, and some others.

Furthermore, he doesn't approach this relationship in a stuck-up self absorbed artist way: he approaches each member as an equal and will go out of his way to answer any question posed.

He also maintains a Facebook page and does a considerable amount of outreach to his fans through this venue, and he is even willing to Chat on Facebook. He and I have had many fascinating conversations over the months I've been a member of his Facebook page and while he is not the only MA family artist do do so (other notable examples are Catherine, Flora and Rylsky) I am still favorably impressed by the energy he pours into maintaining his Facebook relationships with his fans.

Finally, it would be remiss of me not to mention his considerable talents and artistic vision, which continues to grow and develop over time. I am in awe of those who have the artistic muse, but actually follow it, wherever it leads, the way Davi has. He is not only a personal friend, but an inspiration to me, as I follow his example of recovering with dignity and style from a personal setback suffered several months before his.

Thanks, Adam, for interviewing Davi... thanks, Davi for taking the time to share your insights with us and I look forward enthusiastically to part 2 of this story!

fer, this comment sums up all the gratifying and rewarding things you which are spread in your many comments on my work in the last year and more.
I also consider you one of my most enthusiastic fans, surely the most vocal member among those who have shown an enthusiastic interest to my work, and I really feel lucky to have someone like you to "count on" in the bad and the good times, as you have shown on every possible occasion.
Establishing a relationship in persons like you is more than an investment, is a real deal because you give me back a lot, the maximum I could hope to get from a member, so I have to thank you particularly
Thank you for showing your appreciation and also for your fair and very useful critiques, which help me understand better where I can improve my work.

DeltaGamma. 4 years ago

I want to thank Adam and the Network for giving me this great opportunity.
I consider today as a memorable day and feel honored for having had the chance to speak about myself and my work on this blog.
As Adam says, soon after suggesting this interview things got a bit complicated last year. I even lost the work I had started, and stopped thinking about the interview for some time when everything got suddenly hard. But then, when things started getting better again, the idea of speaking about my professional path starting from a different, awarer point of view, became even more challenging than the initial perspectives.
If the unforeseen event drew a line and divided my career in 2 parts for the reasons I explained in the interview, the interview itself drew another line, giving me the chance to turn back and realize the evolution in my work and the direction my work is taking.
I hope that members will find this first part of the interview interesting and I am already looking forward to having the second part published soon!

Adam 4 years ago

Sexart member Frank, friend of DeltaGamma and frequent commenter, wrote the following as an introduction to this interview. It offers a detailed chronology as well as other interesting insights and information, and is presented below in its complete and unedited form:

DeltaGamma, a "MetArtist” - an Introduction

Since 1999 when MetArt started over 500 photographers have presented us with thousands of models for our pleasure. The vast majority of these models coming from behind what was, until then, the Iron Curtain.

So just what would make a relatively young Italian with a unusual Nom de Plume of DeltaGamma to begin a quest to become an Artist for the
MetArt family. Historically while we are intimately familiar with their work we really know little about these artist. Today that changes as Adam presents us with this first interview of one of our Artists and we will learn what inspired his quest and the process of him becoming a “Met-Artist” and what he hoped to bring to us and how he has made it happen against some strong odds.

It all began on April 19, 2012 when a new model Grace C was “Presented”. Since she was new she got the “flag” as a “New Model” and Delta did no get a “flag” as “New Photographer” in the rest of 2012 he only had two more sets published, both of Grace C. This while she had a total of seven sets published that year. The other four by three different artists. Then on January 3, 2013 Delta has his first set with an established model, Mia Sollis, published.

It was the first time that Adam took note of Delta in his blog. It also gave Delta an opportunity to “explain” the name DeltaGamma, which will show up in the interview. But during the rest of 2013 Delta had a total of only nineteen postings. He did introduce us to one more new model, Nicole J and had sets of a total of 6 models he shot posted. One of which was Lauren Crist (who at that time was posted as Luce A), and he had a total of five sets with her posted. Including one of which had a casual shot that introduced Delta’s feline helper, Rho. It should be noted that during 2013 Delta’s work was not limited to MetArt. He also had 16 sets posted on our sister site SexArt and another six on the Life Erotic. Delta added several models to his body of work that had not appeared on MetArt gave a different look to some that did.

In 2014 Delta became more of a regular on MetArt. By the time June came around he had a month where he had six sets posted, he was flying high. He also had added another three models which he Presented first One, Vanessa Angel, caught Adam’s fancy and was the subject of blog. Adam had also blogged about Delta’s set of Sunshine, Erostea, while she had been Presented by David Lee she was on her way to being Delta’s second most shot model behind only Lauren Crist as she became in Delta’s January 8, 2014 set, Ichota.

Then on the way home to Rome from Prague Delta was robbed. As you will learn in the interview he was devastated. But he fought back. By the end of the year he had delivered to us a total for 2014 of thirty nine published sets on MetArt an additional eighteen on SexArt and nine more on The Life Erotic. And he also presented the only two sets by Mia Sollis to ever appear on another sister site Errotica Archives. So at the end of 2014 it is clear that this Italian with an eye for Czech Republic models has become a true MetArt Family Artist - a “MetArtist”, having sets by 30 different models with a total of sixty one sets published on MetArt and one hundred and thirteen across the family network. With many more to come.

Not only is Delta’s name unusual but what he has brought to us is also. Almost from his introduction here one almost unique element has been Delta’s willingness to share about his work and take an active part in the comment section. Delta is almost alone among the Artist to give us a story of the background for each set he delivers, and interacts in the comments to both positive and negative ones. Recently he has added another almost unique element, he has expanded his sets to while still giving us the standard 120 photos he also adds a selection of B & W photos, and experimental work with desaturated photos, and a few behind the scenes casual shots.

It will be fun to watch on 2015 what he comes up with next.

I couldn't hope for a more prestigious extra-introduction after that of Adam.
Frank and I have started our special relationship here on Sexart, and one day we will recap how it all began (probably my bio, like fer says...;)).
With Frank's words the framework of my story here in this Network is perfectly clear and adds a lot of detailed information of how my work developed.
Thank you my friend for taking once again the time to analyse my path so far.

Well written introduction, Frank... thanks for the background information including some basic stats which you love so much. I have the feeling that when Davi's biography is published, you will be the prime contributor!

Nice work Davi. I like the honesty and thought that went into this. We met during those early blog sets and I felt your enthusiasm and love for your work and also your genuine interest in our comments and willingness to listen and make change which really impressed me. Your work is always evolving because you are open to comments, good or bad and willing to take them into consideration in your work. I think your stated goal of shooting for the model and not just your "style" is the key to your success. To many photographers try to insert their own style into there work and forget that the model "is" the subject and not just a robot to do their bidding. The really "good" photographers understand that. The ones like you that let the models work and show their individuality are the artists I follow.

I am waiting eagerly for the new models you shot last fall and in December not to mention the ones you just did. I think there may be some new treasures there we have yet to see. Your latest sets with Lucy are great and show a new and different Lucy than her previous sets. Vanessa and Celeste are also on my watch list.

Thank you hipshot, I am glad you commented first and reminded about those early blog sets discussions with you, where my interaction with members actually began. It's nice to read now what you had noticed back then and that that interest and willingness has not changed and has possibly increased after 2 years.
I am particularly glad you have such consideration for my effort of letting the "voice" of models be heard without "suffocating" it with my style or concepts. This is a very valuable opinion by you.
And you can be sure that K will release a few of my last "discovers" from the fall shootings along with some new work with gorgeous rising star Lucy and my angel Vanessa and sweet Celeste.

    Rose, we all know you indeed are a rare and beautiful flower. Thank you for always respecting women and their art. It is really sad that SexArt is the only Adult site that does.

    I am so sick of blow jobs that turn into hand job finishes. 99.999% of all porn flicks end this way now, even here. SA should be better.

    I agree that would be a nice ending indeed (and guys, I'll tell you a secret – women find it hot!). Thanks your feedback Shakau, we love to receive critique from our members and appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.

    I definitely agree with you that almost all porn objectifies women. That's why myself and my female colleagues choose to work for SexArt/MetArt and not any of the other companies out there. I think that the fact we have so many female directors/producers/photographers working with us makes a huge difference. All the same, personally, I DO enjoy cum – the taste, the feel, the look of it. Just speaking for myself here :-)

    A beautifully crafted piece of erotica. The chemistry Michael and Emylia share was so rich and tangible, making it impossible to look away. Unfortunately the sad misogynistic ending of have Emylia covered in cum broke any and all romantic connect the two had. I think at least if the two had a loving embrace afterwards or at the most having Michael clean Emylia off with his tongue. But wait that could NEVER happen, a man touch his own cum let alone taste his own cum. I know the world will never be able to handle such shocking behavior. And I know I'm just a despicable pervert to even suggest such a thing. Still in spite of a sad ending it was a truly beautiful film. Sorry about the rant:)

    No one has more reasons to go to bed, more enjoyment while having sex and more of an equal opportunity employer than my Emylia. No more satisfying or just good for you than my Emylia.

    Thank you so much. But the sad fact is almost all pornography objectifies women and then twists perspective to a false sense of reality. NO woman enjoys cum and this need to "see it" to "have it drip down the face" or "covering her breasts" is wrong. Let us break this untrue narrative and keep the cum where is meant to be, for that is the sole purpose of semen, to procreate. Thank you SexArt for being the only site that truly respects women enough to follow this practice. Keep up the great work.

    Well, yes and no – it can be hot from time to time – sometimes we girls like to see a man cum just as much as you enjoy seeing a woman's orgasm. It's only misogynistic if it's done in a way that objectifies the woman, not if it's her choice. But I take your point – and feeling it inside is generally hotter than seeing it, especially when it triggers another orgasm for me :-)

    So much fun! Emylia connects with Michael with such authentic warmth and sexual hunger.

    I totally agree with Witchit once again, so true and well said. When will men realize that real women do not want to be "cummed" on, it is a horrible practice that only exists in the shameful world of overtly misogynistic adult films. It is time to end this.
