About David Gueringer

I'm just a small town boy from Los Angeles, doing my thing. I love working with people, creating emotion, witnessing beauty, capturing moments.

Death Is Nothing At All

by Henry Scott Holland

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.

Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.

All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Ariana by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals:

Ariana holds a special place in my heart, for being such a ball of energy and warmth. She’s always traveling and hiking and swimming and dancing and enjoying life. She definitely makes the world a better place. All my love Ariana!

Alisha by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals:

I met Alisha at a house party I DJ’d at. She had a sweet smile on her face and she was super friendly. We got to talking and after some facetime I knew she’d be a perfect fit for this series. She was absolutely sweet and down to earth, and we got some great stuff.

Lux Muse by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curi­ous Col­lec­tion of Uncom­mon Individuals:

Lux Muse is a multi-faceted character, a model, a muse, an artist, a unique individual. Shooting with her for my series was pure pleasure. She goes from sexy to silly to serious and back again just as fast; I have to do everything I can to keep up with her. This coy capture is but one grab from what turned out to be a fantastic session.

Shannon Drake by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals:

Shannon Drake is full of energy, pizazz, smarts and smiles. The first time I met her was when her and her dude Joe rolled into a little festival of ours, and we all ended up having an extended conversation in their van, joking and philosophizing about various things, and playing with their little dog Jambo. Shannon is not only a conscious, beautiful, and grounded young woman, she is an entrepreneur…a role model for not only other people in their 20s and 30s, but for anyone out there pursuing their dreams and ambitions. She deftly handles her business, while making plenty of time for shenanigans, and I applaud her for this.

Jennifer by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals:

This is a renaissance woman right here. Jennifer is bright, thoughtful, friendly, AWARE, and she radiates beauty on every level. But what resonates with me more than anything is Jennifer’s pure artist spirit. She conceives, she creates, she collaborates, and she seems to always be challenging herself to keep her work fresh. She’s living an authentic life, figuring it out as she goes. I have a lot of admiration for this new amazing friend of mine.

Helen by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals:

I met Helen a couple short months ago during a fundamentally epic clown retreat in Ojai. Clearly, her colorful ink makes her stand out, like WOW. But under her skin she’s got an endearing shyness about her, always giggling and smiling sweetly. Peel back another layer and you discover what a talented artist she is, capturing personalities in portraits and sexiness in fashion and all manner of things with Suicide Girls. We bonded that weekend, and in the days and weeks and months since she’s become a regular character in my life, and for that I am ever grateful.

Jordan by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals:

I normally write about the model, but this time I want to write TO the model:

Upon sorting through more of the photos we shot together, I had to post this and kiss your ass. Besides being a delightfully unique and silly fun crazy character, you are one of the most naturally gifted models I’ve ever shot with. You know exactly how to move your body, your eyes are electric, your hair is radiant, you can rapidly shift between sexy and sweet, and in general, you are just plain gorgeous. You are a knockout. I’m floored. One love baby!!!

Hannah by David Gueringer

From a recent shoot for my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals:

I always try to say something about my experience shooting with the subjects for my series, but in this case I’m mostly, just, speechless. Hannah left me breathless. Magic was made last night folks, and this is just a teensy bit of it…can’t wait to share more and more and more :-)

Captain Maggot by David Gueringer [mildly nsfw]

Seriously one of my proudest pictures.  The Internet needs more sexy clown representatives. It is known.

Also, the first public posting of a nude from my Curious Collection of Uncommon Individuals…that’s right, there’s this whole other wild and crazy side of the project.
