Never give up by Skip Staheli

Skip is from the Netherlands and opened his studio Purple Cows in August of 2008, 12 years ago. He started out doing photos for friends and himself finding out he enjoyed it so much he decided to start his studio. 

“”Your SMILE is your LOGO, your PERSONALITY is your BUSINESSCARD. How you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your TRADEMARK”

Skip shoots on mostly green screen in his studio.  

He then uses Photoshop, Lightroom, Filter forge, his Bamboo Tablet and other toys to “make the avatar look as realist as possible without changing them too much”. Using his tools Skip blends bringing depth, softness and passion out in his work. Each piece sometimes taking him days , he works bringing out beauty and romance for us to see and feel.

“Skip Staheli is a photographer who needs no introduction. His avatar studies are legendary in Second Life – and with good reason. He composes some of the best on the grid, often mixing elements of both digital and physical worlds to produce stunning images.”

“Best Male Fashion Magazine on SL ♥”

Despite being in high demand and having so many awards under his belt, Skip is quite down to earth and modest. 

Skip’s avatar exudes a sexuality that can only come from diving so deep into photos. He has definitely used his photographers’ eye when creating his Avatar and everyone is happy about that. Skips personality is warm, friendly, smart, fun, exciting and well cuddly he does have a big Kitty vibe.

“Next to my photo’s I sometimes love to landscape and create nice places in SL, visit live music and DJ gigs… And when I have some time left, you can find me exploring beautiful sims, and of course, I can’t help but háve to make photos then as well.”
