I’m off on a new direction.
Not entirely new. I still love taking photos, love gardening, enjoy cooking and sadly, love eating a bit too much. So, “What’s new?”
My website has a different mix. It was nude, nude, nude. To paraphrase my friend Charles, “she’ll be nude, nude, nude ’til daddy takes the cam-ra awayyyyy”. I had multiple nude galleries and behind-the-scenes videos that also featured nudity. I was fully committed to the fine art nude genre.
Now my website has made a partial 180. A 145? I still have a nude gallery, although it is not located for primary billing. I’m proud of that work, but 100,000 photos or more later, I have done what I started out to do in the fine art nude field. My goal is to take a wide range of photos again, and hopefully capture the soul of this beautiful place and the beautiful Sonoran Desert people. Actually, a bit broader than that, I am seeking to capture landscapes and people of the Southwest.
I have a very patient, and very capable web designer. When I make a shift, she comes to my aid. Anyone looking to set up a website, I enthusiastically recommend Heather Valencia, Ravenous Raven Design. This site is fairly simple compared to my old nursery website, and she did both with equal ease. During the years I focused on nude subject matter (popular), I had over 6000 visitors a month on my site.
My Instagram is a very big shift. There, I have dropped nudity/censoring. My new Instagram is @alan.tower.photo Check it out. My blogs show uncensored versions of some past shoots with models.
Thank you for following me through the twists and turns. I’m on a new direction, but will use old skills and contacts and hope to grow and add new skills and connections, as well. There will occasionally be a blog that features a nude model, but that will be a bit less often.
