UNITED KINGDOM - Photographer Mick Waghorne

When I look at Mick Waghorne photos for first time I am thinking “these are the kind of photos I want to shoot”.

This is happening because his photos have something erotic and dynamic on them.

This is also happening because his main idea in shooting is “I need to explore my own creative boundaries”

Mick is 42 years old and he is an amateur photographer although his photos are really professional.

He lives in England in a rural area.




















Excellent work Mick

I have found his job at;

Aneta Bartos - American Photographer


Aneta Bartos work is truly amazing!!! Although I am usually not all that interested in fashion photography I must say that I like Aneta Bartos's work, which is refreshingly different as she captures the models in a unique way giving to us a final great result. Her photos are amazing!

She uses relatively long exposure and always underexpose but through this way she is giving us photos that are romantic, tender, sensual, erotic , elegant and at the same time very dark…not an easy combination to capture. She has REALLY a very distinct style. Some of her photos look like paintings

Here you will find some Aneta Bartos’ work. Unbelievably beautiful, very quiet imagery offering to us a usual mysterious, haunting beauty but at the same time tender, accessible and alive.
These pictures are statement that nude can be really elegant and this is something
I love very much.

"A photographie is like a miracle - it allowes us to control and to stop the time, and also it shows us something you can't emphasize: The Movement, the Emotion, the Pain as the Beauty. It creates our memories - of everything we love."



"As a mommy of 4 kids, who takes in her hands a camera, instead of cooking spoon and iron. And I do not something else, as to absorb all negatifs, all what's important to myself and what's fading reliable: The LOVE, the Pleasure, the Sadness as a Longing" smell the children, the Loneliness and the Expactation. All this are stories which turn stil in my mind - stories which were written by people - and which I can read as a book. We all, everybody of us, has a secret, and only the photographie can save it, without to reveal everything!"
