Catalina Staheli has been a Second Life Resident since May 18, 2007, and an avid photographer for the past several years. Always pushing herself to learn and grow, she’s enjoyed every second of her journey as a budding photographer and it has paved the way for her interests in modeling and designing, though photography remains her happiest joy.

Catalina is the designer behind the brand [ Aleutia ], an explorer of role play sims when there’s time, and a long time supporter of Relay For Life. In her first life, Cata can be found living above the Arctic Circle in remote northern Alaska, where she works as a Special Education teacher in a native Iñupiat village. She is also pursuing her PhD in Curriculum & Instruction.

Keegan Kavanagh:

keegan_001

I’ve been in SecondLife since 2009. I’ve tried everything from DJing, modeling, video & media rentals and tech support and club owning. I tinkered with photography on and off throughout the years.

It wasn’t until I began making my own poses, that I really threw myself into the art. I found myself quickly becoming addicted to my work and I fell in love with it. I find myself telling stories through my poses and photography and I’m excited to be able to share some of that with you.

-Keegan

I make many of the poses for my pictures. Please see a link below to my marketplace listings as well as my Flickr.

Thank you!

Meet the Windlight Art Gallery Fellows: Ninaporras Resident & Bentleyclaire Resident!

The November & December Exhibition at Windlight Art Gallery closes in a few days. We are featuring the artists who are exhibiting at the gallery! Today’s features are on Ninaporras Resident & Bentleyclaire Resident:

1510p_1024pe-art-of-nina-porrasSL NAME: NinaPorras

BIOGRAPHY:
I am in CGI-art since 10 years, because – don’t laugh – I cannot draw. I am using Poser and Photoshop. Before I tripped over Poser, I wrote erotic stories. But for one story I need months, many months (me, a perfectionist German!), while for a picture I need a day or two. So it was a great discovery for myself and a challenge, this software, with which I could give my fantasy pictures: Poser.

I like erotic art, showing the best of human, the nude body – even in men. My pictures are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water. Everybody except the morons, likes erotic art. If you want see more not G-rated art, visit my gallery on SL.

In 2012 I suffered an accident and lost my left leg. I began picturing handicapped people, part of my self-therapy to overcome my loss. But showing erotic pictures of disabled people is not always welcome in the world of “abled” and two-leggers. Not understood well that even handicapped are sexual beings, with the same desires, wishes and carving for lust and love as the so-called “abled”. By the way, I don’t know any abled without a disability.

When I started on Renderosity with my first picture of a one-legged woman, I just got flamed by its bigot censors, not getting the beauty of imperfectness and refusing human rights for disabled persons. They have not the faintest idea about disability and are in lack of any tolerance. They took disability like something obscene, bothering “healthy people” like bare breasts or genitals. They don’t like get pestered by the view of an imperfect body, which could remind them to their own vulnerability and mortality.
These poor people never will get that true beauty lies in imperfectness and in a strange way a missing limb can make an advancement. Therefore I left some places of internet, when I got stupid comments, pointing me crazy or mad.

Finally I found the right place for my art: It is HERE, on Second Life Here I am among friends, who appreciate my art. Visit my gallery on Crystal Haven, where I exchange the pictures regularly.
Let me close with Mark Twain: “The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” Promised, I’ll try with my art.

Of course, feedback is always welcome, it makes my creativity speeding up.

BIOGRAPHY:
I have always had a passion for pretty things and captivating photos. I came to Second Life and was instantly wowed by the the graphical beauty of it. The possibilities are seemingly endless. There is so much beauty to be found in SL. I try to capture as much of it as I can. I find my style improves and changes with every photo I take. It’s easy to find beauty in every place and situation. My goal is to share that beauty with as many people as I can. I spend my time in SL taking photos and spending time with my family and friends. Building and maintaining those relationships are very important to me.

Every day should feel like a day at the beach
Tessgrace 51 Resident

BIOGRAPHY: Hello, My name is Tessa and I have enjoyed photography in Second Life for the past four years. I first began my journey as a blogger looking for a creative outlet. I soon found that my favorite part of blogging ended up being the creation of the photograph itself. My blogging has since evolved to be more photography based. I enjoy shooting landscape and portrait images the most.

My photography is often inspired by the creations of others. I enjoy exploring the many locations offered around Second Life. Each place that I visit sparks a vision for a future project.

I would love for you to spend a little time and check out my works at the following links:
