Skip Staheli

He opened his studio Purple Cows in August of 2008.

Skip started out doing photos for friends and himself, which led to hm finding out he enjoyed it so much he decided to start his Photo Studio Purple Cows 12 years ago.

“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.”

Skip shoots usually with a green screen. He then uses Photoshop, Lightroom, Filter forge, his Bamboo Tablet and other toys to “make the avatar look as realistic 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.

“I love to blend some rl elements into SL pics. Also I like to try new things always, you wont see often the same kind of picture on my stream. I want my pictures to have feel in them, my goal is to touch people when they look at my work..and also I work hard to not change the avatar too much, but make it look more real life like. I find myself working longer and longer on a picture.. when I first worked 2.5 to 3 hours on one piece, I now easily spend 5 to 8 hours on a pic..the more technics you use, the more time consuming it is..and..once you use them, you can’t go back anymore.. so you ask more and more of yourself. Im always learning, very eager to learn..and I think its never good enough..” – SkipStaheli
