About Nick Karras
Dr. Nick Karras is a man of many talents. He is a photographer and the author of Petals, a break-though book presenting stunningly beautiful images of vulvas. A documentary of his work on the project is the subject of an award-winning film,Petals - Journey Into Self-Discovery. The varied range of his erotic photography has been exhibited in many venues and media - the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival, the Los Angeles Museum of Sex, Victoria Erotica Festival, Bravo TV (UK), VaginaFest events, and more.Nick has received a prestigious Sexual Intelligence Award by Dr. Marty Klein.
Nick is also a teacher. His Doctorate degree in Sexology was awarded by the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality (IASHS) in San Francisco. Aside from teaching photographic skills at various Lifestyle conventions and festivals, he has been a featured speaker and workshop leader at SSSS (The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality) and ASEP (Association of Sexual Energy Professionals).
Because of his necessarily intimate and honest encounters with women and men in sensuous settings, Nick has gained unique insights into both the fantasies and the reality of human beings. His investigation into taboo subjects has allowed him to experience the basic nature of most sexual problems. For example, from his controversial work in the Petals project, came his workshop: "Images of Vulvas as a Healing Experience." His inventive approach to the life's sexual dilemmas combined with his delicate aesthetic sense make him an outstanding personal mentor.
In his current photo project, Naked Wisdom, he is turning his camera on the wise elders of our society for their wisdom and knowledge of self love and body acceptance. Working with his wife, Sayaka, a psychologist and sexologist, they are seeking out 60 plus generation for their insight to life through story telling and personalized interviews and photographically capturing the beautiful radiance of their nude body.
