• FREE ARCHIVED BLOG & PHOTOS

    This blog was originally posted to patreon on April 10th 2016. I am currently in the process of moving everything from patreon over here to my website, because I don’t trust patreon to continue to allow me to have nude content, but here on my website I have COMPLETE CONTROL. I’m hoping to have everything moved over by the end of the year. =]

    I’m posting this archived blog here for FREE as my way of showing you appreciation for visiting my website! <3

    ———-

    I’ve been thinking today about how much I love exploring and remembering all the wonderful places I’ve been. I’ve clambered up a mountain and climbed down waterfalls to find the perfect little pool in which to photograph a new friend. I’ve been soot-covered in a burned down abandoned house in which I found a death certificate from 20 years ago. I’ve spent 10 minutes just walking around a mansion to see every room, most of which were named after a spice or herb. It was large enough to need 2 staircases and had the most beautiful tree outside the front door, leaves bright yellow in October. I’ve continuously returned to the big abandoned house owned by a peacock and frequented by geese. I’ve been sunburned from not realizing how long I had been taking self portraits in a quarry within walking distance of my apartment. I’ve ran back home after a whirlwind shoot in the quarry right before a thunderstorm started. I’ve been to an abandoned 3 story college with an enormous & prominent staircase on the first floor, all of the giant windows completely broken and gone. I climbed the crooked beams at the back of the college which were mangled as a result of a fire.

    I’m so thankful for these and many other amazing unmentioned places I’ve visited. Don’t even get me started on how lucky I am to have met so many fantastic people. =] <3

  • *NSFW* Creator Interview: Expressions Untold

    If you could describe the entirety of your work in three sentences, what would they be? 

    My work at it’s core is about acceptance. For oneself in their skin. And for their sexuality and the sexual energy that drives them.

    What’s the story of your journey to becoming an artist?

    Oh boy, that’s a long one haha. My journey started back while I was a teen spending hours looking at porn and not coming across any content that I liked. Seeing the blatant misogynistic, racist, and sexist storylines playing out over and over again. Then growing older and having sexual experiences of my own and learning about the insecurities people had about their bodies while also dealing with my own shame around my sexuality. So when I got my first camera around age 24 I knew that I wanted to take photos of real human bodies in all their diversity and uniqueness. I knew that I wanted to capture couples making love and taking photos of everyday people like you and I having moments of pleasure whether that be alone or with a partner. I felt strongly that is what the world needed to see.
    Was there anyone who influenced your work or supported you from the very beginning?

    Jade Beal was a huge inspiration of mine. I love the way she captures people of all ages and skin in such a positive and respectful light. I love that her worked touched on intimacy regardless of age but also uplifted motherhood and bodies of all types.

    What’s your favorite thing to create, or be a part of creating?

    I love working with people and afterwards showing them their images. Receiving that phone call or text that’s full of emotion as they look through their photos in awe of how they look and have been captured. So, I guess to answer your question. Creating pieces of art that emotionally uplift and empower people is my favorite thing to create.
    Do you have a favorite piece or series?

    It would be so hard to pick just one piece. All my photos have different emotions and memories behind them. From the conversations had while taking the photo to the emotions evoked through it. It would be so hard to pick just one.

    How do you find inspiration when you’re in a creative rut?

    Ya know, I’ll be honest here and say that. I’ve never really experienced that. As a writer so much of my work is based on how I’m feeling at the time so I always create from my own emotions. Also because I speak about sexuality often and I am a very sexual person. I always kinda feel that sensual sensual energy in me. Aside from that I’m always thinking and processing things. Often times my issue is actually that I don’t want to bombard people with my ideas or emotions..

    Is there anything you wish you could change about the art world or how people connect to your work?

    YES YES YES!!! I hate that so much of an artists perceived skill and importance derives on their follower count. As someone who’s had countless instagram pages shut down you really get to see how differently people treat you simply based on that number at the top of your page and while one day a person could have a large following with opportunities coming left and right. A day later they could be perceived as a “nobody” simply because their page now doesn’t have the same following. I wish people connected more with artists as humans and not sources to consume from. I wish that more people took time to appreciate, read, and understand the art being put out there and not just double tap and scroll.

    Do you see your work expanding, changing, or going in another direction in the future?

    I have many plans for my work. I wouldn’t say that I’d be changing directions though because I’ve always seen so much more for Expressions Untold than just being a photographer and writer. I plan on having my work in museums, speaking at panels and events, hosting retreats, coaching teens and adults on intimacy, self awareness, and deconstructing beliefs that limit human beings. I plan on having my own production studio. Creating films that embody the messages of my work. I have so much work to do to get to the place I want to be..

    If people could only receive one piece of information or knowledge about your work, what would you want that to be?

    That every piece of my work is creating with the intention to help someone heal..

    Where can you and your work be found online?

    This is my main website where one can go to gain access to my book, a gallery showing previews of my work, and links to all other podcasts and publications that my work has been featured in.
    This is where I post my uncensored work that I don’t post anywhere else. It has photos and videos of people and couples making love, in moments of self pleasure, and simply embracing their bodies in the most raw, real, and vulnerable ways..

  • FREE ARCHIVED BLOG & PHOTOSET

    I originally wrote this for Patreon on April 4 2016. I’m planning on switching everything over from Patreon to my website (here) over the next few months and thought I would share some of my old blogs with you for FREE to show my appreciation for you visiting my website! <3

    ———————-

    Okay, so I hardly ever post anything personal on tumblr or instagram (or any social media for that matter) but I thought I would share more here with you guys. If this is something you’ve been wanting, yay! If not… I guess let me know? Hopefully you’d like to know more about me since you support my photography & modeling & whatnot.

    Anyway, on to personal stuff… I had my IUD removed today and replaced it with a different kind. I’ve been at home ever since with cramps and just generally not feeling great or motivated. Thankfully I’m not working today so that’s helped. I had a Skyla IUD which slowly releases small amounts of a progestin hormone into my uterus. Sadly (and embarrassingly) it took me 2 years to realize that this has to be the source of some of the health issues that started in June/July 2014. I got Skyla in March 2014. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Why didn’t I make the correlation sooner?! My body suddenly had more hormones in it than ever, of course it freaked out.

    As of today I’ve switched to ParaGuard, which is a non-hormonal IUD that is just as effective in preventing pregnancy. I expect to start seeing an improvement in my health in the next few months. It was really nice not having a period for 2 years but I’ll take menstruation over health issues any day.

  • Cross country road trip: one month down, one to go.

    In 1 month on the road I’ve:
    -driven over 4500 miles
    -visited 18 National Parks, National Monuments, and State Parks
    -visited 4 different states (Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California)
    -taken 5 showers
    -spent 24 nights sleeping in my van
    -spent 5 nights in airbnbs
    -spent 2 nights hosted by a friend
    -shot 15 rolls of landscapes for double exposures (MORE ON THESE SOON!!)
    -shot 28 self portrait sets (holy shit I counted just now and didn’t realize I’d taken that many already wowwww)
    -made 86 daily travel vlogs (for you to watch for free! see below!)
    -made 26 videos with my digital camera
    -made hundreds of videos with my cell phone

    Now that I’ve put all of this info together I feel SUPER pleased about how much I’ve accomplished. Wow. And to think I was feeling some kinda way about productivity earlier this month… pshhhh.

    All of my relaxing or “doing nothing” time is ALSO time that *all the things* are in the process of being done. Things need to marinate sometimes. I cultivate my creative energy by doing things for ME, and the BEST time to create is when I am filled with creative energy, wouldn’t you agree?!

    Wow, I’m really typing this to remind myself more than anything. I have such a tendency to push myself to work and check things off to do lists that it’s easy to put myself last. I can talk all day about self care and the importance of doing things for yourself, just because… but when it comes to myself sometimes I forget.

    This trip has really helped me remember the importance of just… laying in the grass. Climbing rocks. Crying next to a river. Sitting between two massive trees and watching the wind in their crowns.

    We as a society tend to go and do and think about what’s next and and and

    I’m catching myself speeding up, feeling more inadequate, more anxious, in my head too much when I’m looking at screens a lot of the day.

    There’s been a new kind of anxiety of not knowing when I’ll have internet again, or even phone service because of some of the remote landscape locations I’m visiting. But it’s SO FREEING at the same time.

    I have my own full attention. No notifications from the computer in my pocket.

    The relief of being completely alone.

    I am able to see more details, like the little bird flitting around under the bush, the secret little nook in the hollow of a tree, or the way the light shines through the trees in just the right way to see a spider web high above.

    This is my reminder to come back to myself.

    This trip is showing me how to just BE with myself. I so often avoid introspection because I have a hard time disentangling my thoughts and feelings and I don’t usually know how to explain what I’m feeling or why. It’s easier to just fill my schedule with tons of things to do so that I don’t have to sit with myself.

    That’s made my thoughts and feelings just get more confused and intense and it’s time. Time for me to sit with them. Disentangle them. Ask them their names and why they’re here inside of me. Acknowledge their presence in my life and ALLOW THEM TO BE THERE. Take the time to sit with them, feel through them…. let them tell me whatever it is I need to know. And let them pass.

    Time with myself makes me want to spend even MORE time alone. I’m at this point in my life where I feel like I’m finally starting to figure out who I really am. Not what’s been expected of me by our monogamous cisheteropatriarchal racist capitalist society. That version of life is too constricting, too hollow, too exclusionary.

    Time with myself allows me to stretch and learn and grow and BLOOM.

    And I feel like I’ve only just started.

  • FREE! Bathtub self portrait set!

    I took this in May 2017 at an airbnb in the mountains of NC.

    That airbnb was SO adorable and photogenic! The bathtub is one of the main reasons I chose that particular airbnb on that trip. You may recognize it if you’ve been following me for a while. =]  SO MUCH ART came from that weekend, it was the first patron/member sponsored trip I ever took. It feels so incredibly amazing to be able to go somewhere with the intent of making art with no restrictions, just my imagination and my heart.

    YOU are the reason I am able to do this! YOU are who I create for (other than myself, of course). It’s YOUR support that keeps me going, including on this 2 month cross country road trip I’m halfway through already! Holy shit, time really flies. Join my *FREE* mailing list to get updates and access to the (more than) daily video blogs from my trip!

  • FREE SET! Double Exposures of Tiffany Helms from May 2014

    I love double exposures SO MUCH. I’ve been creating them since 2010 (holy shit almost 10 years ago!) when I got my first film camera and started experimenting. I loved doubles immediately and they quickly became some of my most favorite images. There’s something about how I have NO REAL CONTROL over them, that I just have to do my best and trust that something wonderful will come out of it, that is SO FREEING for me. I’ve always been a big planner, scheduler, and organizer (hello Virgo rising and FOUR planets in Capricorn) but double exposures have taught me the magick and freedom in not having control. There are always several images in every roll that blow me away.

    Of course, depending on the camera and what technique I use to take the double, I sometimes do have a good idea what the image will look like and can plan accordingly. However, I never TRULY know how an image is going to look until I get the film developed. Getting scans back is such an exciting gift! It’s like opening a present from myself and the universe. <3

    The images in this photoset of Tiffany Helms are an example of having somewhat of an idea of how the final images will turn out. I shot these on a Yashica Mat EM way back in May 2014!!

    I have SO MUCH MORE to share with you about double exposures. I’m in the process of creating a *FREE* mini course to teach you exactly what they are, how to produce them in camera with 35mm film, and to give you all of my tips for creating your best double exposures!

    Keep an eye out here on my website or join my free mailing list (go to my home page, scroll down, and enter your email) to be notified when the course is available!

    You may notice there’s a black and white image in the gallery that is nothing like the rest. That one is a medium format film image I took of her with a panoramic pinhole camera that I made with my dad!
