Self Portrait (2018) of Ivan Guzman for Philly based Boudoir Photography

About Ivan (me)

I was born and raised in LA, and after being a vagabond for a few years, I now spend my life in Philadelphia. 

Following along the lines of one of my heroes, Peter Parker, I decided to pick up photography and explore the world through the lens. When I am not working on making art, I am playing video games and riding my bike around town.

 

Why do boudoir photography?

For the longest time, I struggled with the idea of Self Love and the acceptance of who I am. Growing up as a nerdy, awkward, shy kid didn’t help matters either. Yet, as I started to grow older, I learned that my imperfections added to my character and who I am. This realization has made me love myself and accept my imperfections. This leads me to want to help others achieve the same idea of Self Love.

Using my art to create intimate portraits for people, I hope that they can pass the hurdles of the negative ideas that they are dealing with. These sessions are a way for me to help others celebrate who they are, empower them, and experience all the feeling that comes with Self Love.
