About

When I decided to end the StoneNudes project it was because the path I had been walking was at a crossroads. My life and Art were evolving, but my journey with traditional photography needed to change. After 20 years of producing original work I wanted, needed, to express what I was seeing in the world around me, differently.
 

Last year Renan Ozturk gifted me a digital camera and lens, he felt that my vision needed to embrace the present. I immediately began to explore the world around me with this new instrument, after a lifetime of playing acoustical Music I was now, electric. Bodies in motion and landscapes have always been my subject, I wanted to continue this work with no limits.
 

When the opportunity to create with an Aerialist in Yosemite happened I couldn’t sleep the night before our session. The images that we made opened my mind to endless possibilities and collaboration.  I want to reflect the passions and beauty of Slacklining, Aerial Silks, Lyra, StoneNudes and the landscapes that these pursuits are expressed.
 

Pictures of Fidelman is a way of sharing and keeping this project going by documenting our passionate Community of athletes, artists and acrobats. . .df

Risks and challenges

I've published Calendars for over 20 years now, I have extensive knowledge in how to create a quality project, from making the photographs, to preparing them for the printer, and being present at all the press runs so that every one of the photographs looks and feels the way I want it to.

Because I will be doing all the packing and shipping myself, as I did in earlier years, you can rest assured that the products are packed well... and for the most part, the US Postal Service has done an excellent job of fulfilling delivery.

I have already finished gathering all the new images for the calendar, so that's not an issue. As soon as this campaign is complete, I will have the funds necessary to go to the printer, so there is also very little risk that the calendars won't be complete or shipped out in a timely manner (ie, by the start of November at the very latest).

The biggest risk to the project occurring at all would be if I don't raise enough money for the printing... and given how Kickstarter works, you won't get charged if that happens. So that's not actually a risk to you.
