Motivation
-------------

Barefoot nude women have always been my favorites in photography. But I missed (and still do!) the focus on bare feet in many photographs that could be found in books, magazines and later the internet. Even in those of famous photographers. Often (too often!...) there were beautiful girls in high heels, pantyhose or (even worse!) boots. There is nothing wrong with that, but it's definitely not my favorite taste.

That's why I decided to attempt it for myself and began to do my own photographs in the mid 1990s. In my private sessions the girls have always been barefoot, in workshops/shared sessions I asked them to take off their shoes as often as possible. In my opinion being barefoot makes a girls posing more natural and gently. Whether the feet being visible or not.

Due to several reasons I stopped photography in the early 2000s and the photographs got dusty in the drawer... until some time ago I joined dA. It was then I decided to share my old photographs at least. May be I'll resurrect being an active photographer. But I'm not sure. Time will show...

The first deviated files have been scanned many, many years ago so I'm sorry if they won't meet nowadays quality standards. They are mostly foot related.

In April 2013 I (re)started scanning my complete work that will show all kind of artistic nudes, portraits and - of course - feet... ;) with a modern device. So (technical) quality should improve...

Beginning mid July 2013, you may even find completely new photographs (digital from scratch) in my gallery!

All new files show a copyright watermark. I tried to create a simple one, placing it in the edges and looking after not to disturb the motive. I will do so as long as my copyright is respected.

Copyright. You may favorite/collect and download the photographs for private usage only. Please do not randomly reshare them in the internet without permission!

That said, enjoy the photographs of - in my eyes - nice, cute and mostly barefoot girls.

Critiques and comments are welcome! But please respect the models!

All models were 18+ at the time of photography.

Just a few words about my reduced resolution.

Some of you may have noticed, I reduced the resolution of my photos. They are now at 1024 pixels for the longer side. This has two reasons. Or three...

First, I'm getting a bit annoyed of dA. They change their system towards a direction I'm not happy with. The presentation of gallery and folders got inefficient, as I lost oversight and cannot control (or change back to the old manner) the style. And as usual within the last time, there was no info about the changes. Some time ago, dA announced their (technical) updates on Fridays, so we were informed. This stopped some time ago...

Second, I cannot foresee the impact of dA being part of wix.com now. Esp. if there will be any changes regarding copyright. I'm very tolerant at the moment and my work is put under the Creative Commons Licence (non-commercial, but share alike). But this is my decision and I wouldn't accept any additional rights for wix here. So let's see what the future will bring here.

Well, and third, models doing nude's usually take some money, and it would be nice if my viewers would support me a bit reducing my costs... So I will again provide some of my photos as a premium download. For some "dA points", tough... If you miss this high resolution feature for some of my work and would like to have it, just leave me a note and I will upload it!

That said, have a good time and enjoy the photos here on dA.
Starting with my actual submission (Still so shy), I will also offer premium content zip files for purchasing for selective sets. They will include the photograph submitted and always some variants (both color and/or b&w). The photographs in the zip will be in high quality, full resolution (no downsizing) and without watermark.

Maybe some of my fans will purchase from time to time and support me that way. I'd be very happy if this will happen...
Thank you all in advance! :)

Update 2: as of Oct. 3rd I can welcome my 5000th watcher. Thank you all! :) :) :)

-----------------
Update: the 500.000 page hits were first. But short... ;) Thank you all!!!

-----------------
What will be reached first? 5.000 watchers or 500.000 page hits? Or even 4.000.000 gallery views? ;)

Counting the hits is a nice gimmick, but I'm very happy to receive that growing amount of watchers and fans. Thank you all for that appreciation!

:)
