The models included in Coats of Paint

I've had the opportunity to work with some really incredible models and I truly recognize and appreciate their contribution to the final images. It's been a pleasure getting to know them. The models in this book are also doctors and lawyers, Playmates and entertainers, students and teachers, cosplayers and gymnasts, and so many other fascinating alter egos. I am thankful to each and every one of them for contributing their time and talent and of course their beauty. Here is a listing of the models from Coats of Paint:

Megan Brock (cover), Alison Cember (2 image appearances), Cynthia Van Eygen, Sharen Seitz, Evy Vermeulen, Amiii Richey, Tanya Mendes, Nyx Ortega, Molly Ehmann, Lindsey Electra, Chatel Birkett, Sarah Pirie, Julianna Muse, Cheyenne Silver, Stephanie Kyle, Connie Clapper, Jen Amber (3 image appearances), Lessa Michelle, Kelsey Weathers, Sheila Crosby, Erin St. Blaine (2 image appearances), April Mae Jorgensen, Gummi, Nikki Darling, Encina Severa (2 image appearances), Autumn Allbritton, Funz, Trisha Youkhana, Meria Birchak, Autumn Ivy, Mary Carver, Illyra Lynn Vote, Paris Harshman (3 image appearances), Matthew Lenzi, Courtney Black, Alexandria Pierce, Lynette Brooks, Lia Fowler, Chelle Bell, Kate Perrin, Ally Reynolds, Kyndra Jackson, Kristel Ama, Miss Krystle, Sonja Allen, Stacey Tappenden, Sarah Bowers, Kay Kochman, and Sadie Yurista

Contributing photographers in Coats of Paint

There is no doubt that the contribution of creative photography can elevate the impact of a bodypainted model. In addition to being a book of body painting art, Coats of Paint is also a portfolio of glamorous photography. I enjoy the artistic contribution of photography and I've spent a lot of time learning the tools of the trade and principles of creating alluring images. I was the photographer for a majority of these images, but I would like to credit the other contributing photographers whose images moved me and became some of my favorite selections for this book. Thank you to Don Crossland (3 image credits), Daveed Benito, Brad Garner, Ed Clapper, Steve Gladyz, Images by O'D, Ratchford, and Christos Sewell.
