Wow! Have I really had this Flickr account since 2007?!?! That's just crazy. I figured it was time for me to update my About page, since my life now is soooo different than it was in 2007...


Well, as of 2019, I am a professional boudoir photographer in Nashville, TN. (I am originally from West Virginia.) I moved to Nashville in 2015 to work for another photographer's boudoir studio, and it was the best decision I've ever made! No more worrying about running my own business. Now, I just shoot...edit...repeat. And, my boss is super awesome, so I'm pretty much living the life of my dreams. :)


I've returned to Flickr because I've recently started shooting film photography again just for fun, and I'm tired of only posting my images on Instagram. (You should follow me, btw. I'm @thecourtneybell.) I am still shooting 120 film with my beloved Holga camera, but I've also recently acquired a 35mm Canon EF film camera (aka "Black Beauty"), a Mamiya 645j medium format camera, and I will soon be the proud owner of a Pentax 6x7 medium format camera. So, I hope to be uploading a whole bunch of new film images soon! I doubt I'll be posting any of my professional work here, which is kind of a shame since I'm SO MUCH BETTER than the images that are posted on this account from the early 2000's. Haha! However, because I'm no longer shooting professionally for just myself, I wouldn't feel right about posting images of our clients in this type of forum. If you're interested in seeing what I shoot for a living, though, feel free to follow my Instagram.


Okay, now for the mean stuff:


If you would like to use any of the photos you see in my photostream for personal or commercial use, PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST FOR PERMISSION!!! If I find any of my images were used by you for any reason without my permission, I will take legal action. Simple as that. (I've done it before.) Oh, and if you add me as a contact, I WILL be checking out your photostream and profile as well. If you do not have any photos posted of your own or if you just generally seem like a pervert, creep, or weirdo, you will be blocked. I have a zero tolerance policy on these things. Thanks!
