Who Am I ?!?!
My name is M. Scott Ault, fine art nude photographer, sculptor, and author. I grew up in a world that seemed apathetic, implausible.. and I was ambivalent, I was rudderless thus, I dropped out of everything and went walkabout for years on end. I meandered the high ways and bi ways of North America.. I walked, I cycled.. I skipped and played hopscotch- I traipsed my mind around and met with plethoric individuals presenting multifarious ideals that challenged, contended, and helped grow mine own perspective diversely.. conversely.. surreptitiously.. I grew and changed.
I have lived on the fringes of society for the majority of my life. I've been fortunate enough to exist on minimalistic tendencies and ideals for more than three decades.. using The Bicycle as my method of daily (and life long) mobility.. having it carry me from the bottom of the lowest neighbourhoods to the loftiest communities for work, exploration, and evidence others live just like I do.. only, by degrees. I've experienced bouts of creative explosion.. poetic, literary, and visual.. mostly creating and creating with truncation taking place when employment kicks in once again.
With the recent relocation to Calgary, Alberta, I am making concerted efforts to return to creative output along many different lines, all with decided socially motivated ideals. In the coming months and years, I will be returning wholeheartedly to~ not only Fine Art Nude Photography but .. Musical Composition, Painting, and Sculpting.. I never let writing slide to the wayside thus, I'll be examining different works for upcoming publication.
I shoot Fine Art Nudes.. that's what I bring to you!
I've been shooting Fine Art Nudes for nearly 3 decades.. in all that time, I've collected some pretty awesome accolades.. but more than that, my shooting style is recognized as unique and distinct.. partly because I am a Self- Taught photographer that employs, both, Journalistic and Traditional Styles.
To me, Boudoir Photography is an escape while Fine Art Nudes are celebration. I want to celebrate your unique and individual strengths, personality, and beauty.
My work is artwork.. it is appreciative, it is celebratory.. and it is exhibition worthy. The images we create together will be a personal keepsake but more than that- they will be a family heirloom that will stand up to the test of time!
A sitting isn't inexpensive but we work together leading up to the shoot.. discussions, coffee.. emails.. all distill your personality and energy. We'll~ also~ find an ideal backdrop to work in.. over the decades, I've learned that one "studio" setting has definite limits.. thus, with the advent of AirBnB's .. we have a plethora of functional spaces to work within and.. no 2 alike! Then my work really kicks in and I "go to town" to produce One Final Print. One print that is thoroughly Exhibition Worthy!
The Death of Love :: My Graphically Enhanced Literary Novel
The novel follows a travel weary and beleaguered narrator as he makes a hasty, and broken, return trip HOME after nearly 12 months on the road. After 12 months spent sleeping under bridges, hitch hiking in the rain, cycling across plains and desserts, and running from ghosts of an indifferent world. Alone and travel worn he returns to his beloved mountain town for rest and respite. The warm, loving embrace of The One whom he thought was so eagerly awaiting his eventual and most nontriumphant re- arrival HOME, however.. was not.
This is a "Graphically Enhanced Literary Novel" that exhibits both design and documentation by the author/ artist himself. He is the Photographer, Designer, Layout person and.. editor (with a few willing and volunteer sets of friendly eyes). All imagery is either photographed or manipulated by M. Scott Ault for emphasis and/ or enhancement of the overall document.
