Photographer, Daniel Brustein, finds inspiration in the works of Helmut Newton, Robert Mapplethorpe, Scott Church, and countless photographers he has found and befriended on the inter-webs. One of his favorite collaborators, Model, Nadine Theresa, oozes natural sensuality through a combination of girl next-door innocence and natural beauty. http://pixelsticks.com/
I was introduced to the industry by talented fine artists who encouraged me to pose and gave me opportunities to do so.
Nature has always been my number one source of inspiration and pleasure… Above all else, I am most enthusiastic and passionate about the beauty, power and purity of the natural world.
I walk around feeling like a success story most of the time. I have overcome many struggles and presided over many successes in my life so far. I don’t think the past matters as much as the future though… I care more about the accomplishments of the future, and the goals I have yet to achieve than those that rest in my past.
Yes, I have accomplishments… certifications in martial arts, yoga, and dance. I have won all types of literary awards and recognition for my poetry and writing,and my art in the past few years … but what really matters to me is how I’m going to draw upon those skills and successes to be the best person I can be tomorrow.
Thank you to my literal endless list of mentors and supporters… my friends, my family, my god, and all who push and inspire me. I draw inspiration from every corner of the world, from every being I encounter… and so I owe everyone I know (and many whom I don’t know) a thank you.
I hope that my body of work reflects my feelings of a life long journey of constantly growing, changing, adapting and expanding in name of life and art.
