Austin Bodies Project
In 2015 Doc set out to celebrate the human body. A friend of his from the gym asked him to photograph her and sent him some inspiration images from Bodybuilding.com's Bodies of Work series. While this friend was not the first that Doc photographed for this project, she was the inspiration and the one who put the idea into Doc's head.
The project began as a celebration of fitness in the Austin community because Doc has been a fitness photographer in Austin for a number of years. The first series, The Light Sessions, was directly inspired by the Bodies of Work series and was intended to highlight the strength and development of the participants. This quickly shifted to include obstacle course racers, yogis and acroyogis, dancers, baseball players, soccer players, and others who wanted to participate in the celebration. Subsequently, Doc executed The Dark Sessions, aerial sessions, bodyscapes, graffiti painting on bodies, and body painting. The Austin Bodies Project continues today as people volunteer or as the opportunity arises among Doc's other work and projects.

About Austin Bodies Project
The Austin Bodies Project is a celebration of the human body. Since Doc lives in Austin, Texas, it primarily includes people who live in Austin. Occasionally we get someone who comes from out of town. This style of work is available to you in the same way that boudoir is available from other photographers. Doc's style developed out of his work with dozens of models and clients.
We guarantee that you will be satisfied. If you are not, for any reason, we will refund your session fee and replace your art.

Complementary Digital Images
Everything you buy in print you will also receive as a social media digital file.
In addition to prints of various sizes and types, custom framing, digital products, and other physical products, we also offer digitally painted portraits. This process, done on the computer, takes your photographs and turns them into portraits that look like they were hand-painted. We only provide this option for prints and canvases that are 20" x 24" and larger.
Keepsakes & Wall Art
Prints might be something to put on your coffee table or hang on your wall. When we talk about prints we include photographic prints on professional photographic paper or specialty surface (wood, metal, acrylic, for instance).
Canvas includes two categories: mounted canvas prints framed or suitable for framing, and gallery wrap canvas. Gallery wraps are canvas on a stretcher with hanging hardware on the back. No frame, no stand, just the canvas to be hung on the wall.
Laser-Etched Acrylic, Glass, or Crystal
Current technology allows for images to be etched into the material (acrylic, glass, or crystal). These are suitable for putting on desks, display shelves, or around the house.
Books & Albums
Books are intended to have some text/content in them, along with your beautiful images. Albums are intended to be mostly - or all - images. The quality of the materials and production is similar in both, although books are intended to look more like... well... books.
Frequently Asked Questions
We require it for these sessions. Your escort/chaperone may be in the camera room only with your permission. Otherwise, they are required to remain in the lobby area and enjoy our complimentary refreshments.
Since we shoot tethered, that means that you can scan the images during and immediately after the session. For your selections, however, we will schedule a private viewing session.
Only with your permission. We will review images with you and get your specific permission as to what we are allowed to share. Only images that meet Facebook's and Instagram's rules are ever posted publicly.
All posing is done by agreement, and you have ultimate control over everything we do together. If you want to be sexy or erotic, that's up to you. We do not do full-frontal nudity, photos of genitalia, or other such work.
Your Viewing & Ordering Appointment
Because each person has different goals, we don't package products. Rather we get together with you after the session and after we've had a chance to go through the images. At that viewing session, you will decide what images you want and what products.
