For the past three years, I have been shooting predominantely headshots, portraits, implied, boudoir and fine art nudes with models, many of whom were and are just starting to explore the modeling world, and some of whom are just believing their own beauty. While the emphasis has been on the softer boudoir and fine art nudes, there have also been occasional edgy excursions into the sensual, fetish and erotic worlds. In all cases, the intention of an image has always been to capture a model's unique qualities, beauty and form.
The project started as an interest, with no predetermined goals, direction or end, but it did quickly focus on shooting women of colour. Although I didn't know it at the time, I was developing a body of work that would soon come to be called "The Colours of Chocolate" encompasing a wide variety of women whose skin tones range from deep dark chocolate to white porceline.
With rare exception, none of these models were paid beyond transportation costs and access to the images, an arrangement called TFI (Time for Images). The average shoot consisted of several hundred images and often took 4 - 6 hours to complete. After each shoot, the best images were selected and retouched in post-processing, the equivalent of the old photographic darkroom. The resulting body of work has grown to become this website.
With this site, Huntli Images is making the images within The Colours of Chocolate available to those who appreciate beauty and fine art nudes. and would like to support the models. With each image sold, the model will share equally in the profit of the sale.
