Here is one of my recent bodypaintings, as well as my accompanying photography. Jane was my model ...and she was perfect for this theme.

Bodypainting of Michelle
Location of Shoot:  Jupiter, (Palm Beach County), Florida
Situation:  Bodypainting at a nightclub - taking requests



Background on This Bodypainting
I bodypaint at a number of nightclubs throughout South Florida.  The draw for the evening is my artistic skill and my ability to translate any patron's request into eye-catching body art.  It transforms them for the evening and certainly makes them the center of attention.  Sometimes it's just a small request, and other instances the suggestions become more elaborate.  Whatever the subject wants, fellow patrons gather round and clap in approval as the form takes shape.  As an artist it's rewarding to watch my audience enjoy the process unfold.  In this particular example, Michelle asked that I adorn her with a glow-in-the-dark viper snake.  No problem.  This particular piece took five minutes to create.  As an added treat, the paint fluoresces wildly under ultra-violet black light.  Another part of this snake extended from her skirt all the way down her leg so it appeared that the viper was tucked inside her outfit.  Many clubs and private parties featuring my glow-in-the-dark body art install several black lights throughout their establishment.  In this manner, one can see glowing people hanging about the black lights similar to how moths are drawn to a flame.  For more information about my bodypainting and photographic services, please see below for details.

Bodypainting of Shally
Location of Shoot: Cypress Cove Resort, Kissimmee (Orlando area), Florida
Event: Shally was bodypainted in front of an audience



Background on This Bodypainting
I met Shally during one of the regional 'Burning Man' gatherings in Lakeland, Florida - called 'AfterBurn'. Over the past four years, my bodypainting at this event has become fairly well known. I was setting up after arriving late in the evening and Shally walked up and immediately engaged in conversation. She was originally born in Puerto Rico and moved to Florida when she was five. So she speaks English perfectly, but also retains a slight accent that is delightful to the ears. Shally possesses a delicate voice that produces a smile on anyone she engages with. Although naturally shy and introspective, Shally became a favorite of the entire camp. Her first 'AfterBurn' bodypainting unfolded in front of scores of appreciative attenders. Subsequently, we committed to finding another venue in Central Florida where we could again collaborate with cutting edge body art. That opportunity recently happened with a performance art invitation at Cypress Cove Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. I painted Shally with the detailed pattern you see here. The work actually has two personalities: one during the day, and a "glow-in-the-dark" version visible only at night under ultraviolet black light. Do you yearn to see Shally's night bodypainting? No problem. Just click on, or go to the following website:
< http://my.opera.com/CAFlick/blog/2012/08/22/body-painting-of-shally-orlando-central-florida
where you may view my blog. It contains three additional images of Shally that will surely take your breath away. If live performances are what you want, Shally is available as one of my bodypainting models in the Central Florida region (serving greater Orlando, Tampa Bay, and the Space Coast of Brevard County). For more information about my bodypainting and photographic services, please see below for details.

Bodypainting of Lena
Location of Shoot:  Miami Beach, Florida
Theme:  Russian Filagree



Background on This Bodypainting
Born near Moscow, Lena was a successful model in Russia.  Russian print magazines regularly featured her wearing the latest fashions.  But for Lena, the unseemly cracks within Russian culture held little appeal.  She preferred the more transparent societies enjoyed in the West and eventually she emigrated to one of its largest fashion capitals: Miami Beach.  It is here that Lena has made her permanent home.  Although Lena is fiercely proud of her Russian ethnicity and language, she has no desire for even a short visit back to the land of her birth.  America is now her adopted home.  Lena contacted me about creating a bodypainting that would accurately reflect her original Eastern European culture as well as accent her hour glass figure.  Our collaborative outcome was a theme based on the fine art of Russian filagree.  Filagree is a delicate kind of jewelry metalwork, usually consisting of gold or silver, and incorporates tiny beads or twisted threads soldered together and arranged in artistic motifs. It often suggests lace, a Russian folk art specialty.  Instead of employing my usual air brush equipment to execute the design, I decided that hand painting would produce finer detail.  The gold color consists of stage make-up and easily washes off.  But if left on the skin, this particular gold will safely adhere for two days.  The ultra-feminine result is what you see in the photograph, with the repetitive gold pattern becoming "living Russian filagree".  If you would like to see a second enticing photo of Lena completed with her Russian-styled body art, go to my blog.  Just click on the following URL web address:

Bodypainting of Bridget
Location of Shoot:  Palm Beach County, Florida
Theme:  Serpents dwell in the wild grass



Background on This Bodypainting
Bridget is a part time model who contacted me for both bodypainting and shooting the results.  She is enthusiastic about working-out at the gym and has a strong entrepreneurial drive that has led her to start several businesses.  One of her companies has her caring for clients' pets while they are away.  In northern Palm Beach County, one may see Bridget walking a large number of dogs, all at the same time.  Bridget's serene presence is just the medicine for stressed canines missing their traveling owners.  Repeat customers mean that Bridget is performing a valued service.  The bodypainting you see on Bridget was the result of happenstance.  The theme was derived from her love of nature and all things wild.  As we were setting up, she spied a silver runner snake crawling by (they are harmless).  She knew what it was and calmly mentioned, "There goes a snake", with a tone of admiration and acceptance.  As I painted Bridget, she enjoyed relating about her life, family, and friends with an openness confirmed by her relaxed demeanor.  Bridget is available as a bodypainting performance art model in the greater Palm Beach region and would be a great asset to any function. For more information about my bodypainting and photographic services, please see below for details. 

If you would like to see a second (and more revealing) photo of Bridget with her unique body art, go to my blog.  Just click on the following URL web address: < http://my.opera.com/CAFlick/blog/2012/11/02/body-painting-in-palm-beach-county-at-tranquil-sunsport-gardens-resort-loxahat >.

On a personal note, I am back from three weeks in Portugal and Spain.  This was my second trip to the Iberian Peninsula.  This past week with Halloween in the Palm Beaches was a rewarding time bodypainting for individual clients at my studio, and creating eye-catching body art for downtown West Palm Beach's MoonFest celebration.  I was the official (and only) bodypainter for the event.  I am told that the four models I brought and bodypainted for the crowds, were featured on the website for the City of West Palm Beach.

Bodypainting of Shally
Location of Shoot: Cypress Cove Resort, Kissimmee (Orlando area), Florida

Flick Photographic & Body Painting by Flick, South Florida
Introduction
OK. You've found my Google+ web site. (I am also on Facebook under "Carl Flick".)  Let's see if I can provide a complete biography that summarizes any gaps. Just go to my INFO page for a brief summary. Don't forget to see my photographic gallery (samples from Flick Photographic - my business).

Places I've called home:
Philadelphia & Media, Pennsylvania
Largo & Indian Rocks Beach, Florida
Minden - Porta Wesfalica, Germany
Greensboro, North Carolina
Charlotte, North Carolina
West Palm Beach, Florida

Life is good. It seems I get a lot of visitors from high school and college.

After Largo High School (Largo, Florida) I went to the University of North Carolina (both undergrad and grad school ...Greensboro and Charlotte campuses). I was an Urban Planner for the City of Charlotte, NC for a number of years. 

While attending my 10 year Largo High School class reunion, I met fellow Largo classmate - Maelouise Tennant. We hit it off instantly. For the following three years we bridged the 700 miles between our homes by lots of rendezvouses and travel. When the long distance romance thing wore thin, I finally moved to South Florida to join Maelouise. We subsequently married four years later. 

During this time we traveled together extensively throughout Europe, the South Pacific, Africa, Southeast Asia, Central America, and South America. Also as a travel photographer, I amassed a large image library of travel and editorial images. Since Maelouise and my meeting, we have traveled to almost 1/3 of the Earth's countries on six continents (65 countries and territories in all). 

We live in West Palm Beach in the tropical, coastal, southeastern part of Florida. After I'd relocated from Charlotte, I'd originally continued my career as an urban planner for a number of years. I loved working in the field. But over time I tired of the failure of sound planning to influence less than qualified elected officials who were making bad decisions with sad consequences. 

Maelouise is a mechanical engineer who works on the Space Shuttle. She is also an excellent student. She is currently a doctoral PhD candidate in family counseling. She may one day transition to a new career when the time is right. In the meantime she loves being an engineer and a 'straight A' student. 

I left my career in urban planning in 2002 and pursued full time the acquisition of real estate in two states (before the economic bust). So far all remains stable since we were fairly conservative with our investments. With urban planning and real estate investing fully experienced, I returned to my roots as a photographer and artist. I attended the Art Institute in Ft. Lauderdale to receive a formal education in professional photography. I subsequently created a photography business and developed a web site that aptly showcases my work and attracts new clients. To view, go to:

http://carlflick.com/ >.

Up until a few years ago, my photographic work had mainly focused on travel, architectural, editorial, and traditional portraiture. But after the economic down-turn, my photography business lost clients who were having to downsize and cut expenses. 

Work content significantly changed after I opened up a companion business in 2007 as a professional bodypainter. I also shifted my photographic emphasis to modeling, fashion, and glamour as a compliment to the body art. That appears to have been a good decision in South Florida with its emphasis on the modeling and fashion industries. Think trendy Miami Beach only 65 miles south. I love being an artist and it goes without saying, I work on interesting canvases. I have managed to create a new hybrid niche that combines both my photographic expertise and bodypainting talents. I even have clients who fly in from as far away as Canada to take advantage of my 'Bodypainting & Photography Packages'. Patrons are given the opportunity to indulge themselves entirely as eye-catching body art and then they can be stunningly portrayed before the camera. Many describe it as a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience as well as the safest off-beat excitement one can savor.

I'm in the process of diversifying my product line and adding new income sources. For example, I bodypaint at several South Florida clubs and I am in negotiations with a several advertising agencies and marketing firms as photographic clients. I'm also working on an emerging book of my bodypaintings that may add spice to coffee tables nationwide. Last, I travel the region serving individual bodypainting and photographic clients - going as far south as Key West (during October's Fantasy Fest). I have two bodypainting and/or photography studios, one located in West Palm Beach and one in Ft. Pierce/Port St. Lucie (1 hour north), which help me serve the needs of my discerning patrons.

To view my three web sites which showcase both my professional model photography and my bodypainting artistry, go to:

http://carlflick.com/bodypainting >
< http://www/modelmayhem.com/flick > and
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2067801&id=1285354804 >.

They say it all.

Last, as part of my marketing, I have a free subscriber list for people who love to receive one stunning yet tasteful bodypainting photograph via a bi-weekly e-mail. Each contains a sample of my latest painted creation. Not surprisingly, the number of recipients is growing. To contact me via e-mail and request your addition to the list, go to my web page: 

http://carlflick.com/contact >. 

The site allows you to send me a brief message requesting your placement on the "bodypainting disribution list". Important: Please include your first and last name, city location, and e-mail address. Simple!

Reinvention is a process as one learns to adapt to new or untapped demand for services and products. American culture is obviously evolving as people discover new ways of self expression. In my case, the metamorphosis is still underway.

Living in South Florida with its tropical flora and nearness to international destinations continues to be wonderful. But attempting to summarize the passing years in paradise remains a difficult task. Obviously, more experiences and interests exist. Nonetheless, we feel happy, enjoy what life has to offer, and continue to grow. 

Sincerely,
Carl
