Ocean Morisset Published Again!

That's right ya'll! My Male Nude photography is featured in a beautiful new hard cover coffee table book published out of the largest publishing house in the UK!!! Earler this year Doling Kindersley Publishing commissioned me to photograph the male nude for their latest photography book titled: Nude Photography: The Art and Craft. The book contains the work of ten photographers from around the WORLD, and I was asked to represent the United States!!

DK's intro reads:
"Follow practical advice from nude photography experts and learn to create picture-perfect results every time with this master class in photographing the human form. Everything’s covered from buying the right equipment and working with amateur and professional models to creating your own studio at home or outdoors. Find tips on setting up a shoot, lighting effects and post-production techniques so you can turn a good picture into a great one. Get inspired by a stunning ‘Photographer’s Gallery’ featuring the work of an international panel of photographers from Giorgio Barolo to John Davis."

I'll be interested to see how my male nude photography is received in the UK and other parts of the world. Oh, did I mention that the first run of books will be 40,000 copies in TEN languages! Yeah, i'm real excited and I'll let you know how it does. In the meantime, You can visit the book publisher's website and order your copy here:,,9781405322188,00.html?breadcrumbList=Photography&bcPath=c614078%2D00000000%23%23%2D1%23%23%2D1%7E%7Ec614078%2D704A%23%233%23%2311%7E%7Eq&searchProfile=UK-614078-global&strSrchSql=#

Photo project: Black Gay Elders and Youth/Father and Son

Greetings brothers,

I'm working with NYC's Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) to produce a coffee-table type book that depicts loving and affirming relationships between fathers and sons.

There will be a casting call to pair together black gay men and black gay youth to depict father and son. Additionally, there will be text written by youth that describes their relationships with their fathers. I've been hired to do the photography and I assure you this will be a powerful book!

Some of you have already expressed interest in participating in my elders project (, and this piece is an offshoot of that. I'm asking all brothers (40 and up) who are interested in participating in the project to reply to this email, and we'll take it from there. If you have a photo of yourself to attach to the email, that will help in the casting process. If you don't, still reply, and I'll provide details.

If you're not already familiar with my photography, you can peruse my blog at

Look forward to collaborating with you on this wonderful project!
