John Tisbury’s photographic work revolves around capturing the female form in a light that imbues erotic elegance and sensual softness. Working in both a studio or location offers him tremendous artistic flexibility and inspires a wide range of ideas. However, it’s within the confines of his studio where he works the best.
A studio space, for Tisbury, is like a blank canvas and where he can create, capture and control every aspect of the image, especially the lighting. A great eye for detail, Tisbury has worked hard to perfect a his signature style with the use of lighting, so much so, that many people simply recognize his work just by how the model in lit. John Tisbury states that he enjoys making images that stir the imagination –images that are provocative and sometimes raunchy but not explicit. “The mind is so much more powerful, so it’s good to leave some things up to the viewer’s imagination.”
