Wow, he's got some amazing photos. I loved the ones where he shows how the photo was done as in the snow scene. Thanks for sharing!

The fairly safe for work through me off for a long while. Really terrific photos though. The most important thing I learned my photography class is I don't have a good eye for taking great photos, you do.

Wow! I saw a few of the comments in this thread first, so that was a bit of a tip-off, but I went through the process of:

Wow - those *must* be... No! They *can't* be!..... OMG! They *are*!

Kinda scary. The lighting must be a bear to get just right, shadows, etc. Amazing.

Funny..but I was thinking Betty Page when I looked at your work. Great work, by the way! Thanks for sharing!

I think Page died not long ago, by the way. She surely had a strange, sad life.

Again, NOT my work. The artist is Michael Paul Smith. The man has some skills. The "photos of my models" link title is what popped up when I copied the link. Sorry.

Well, let's just say that the following song came to mind after noting the misdirection.
