" Wolf189 is a wonderful photographer that seductively emulates his concepts through his work. With commercial work under his belt, he is able to dabble in the world of erotica by posing beautiful young women in different settings to portray the exotic and sexual undertones of their being. "
- Juxtapoz Magazine
" Wolf's work is known for its simplistic beauty and unique artistic expression. As a photographer he likes to feel a connection with his subject finding that this allows a way of creating sensual and intimately candid shots. Wolf creates a space and flexibility that allows his model to express what she is truly feeling in the moment. The freedom that his models experience while working with Wolf is shown through variations of emotions and desires expressed in each shot. This very key to his work is what allows to viewer to feel as though they are part of something very personal, and raw. One may even speculate that it is as if the camera was invisible, or maybe even forgotten by the subject whom was lost in her own sense of being. "
- NUDE Magazine
" Wolf seems to have a talent for making his models so relaxed that their soul shines through. He is a leading light in candid erotica and I am a big fan of his work."
- Pete Graham

"Wolf189 pictures always create an intense atmosphere, a sensuous, playful world full of feminity and quicken your imagination and fantasy ."
- C-Heads Magazine ( Austria )
" As a fashion designer I am extremely reliant upon the photographers I work with to capture the essence of my creations. The photographer must develop a rapport with the model, while recognizing that she is a vehicle by which the clothing she wears will speak to an audience. The photographer must pick up where the designer has left off and tell a story through the eye of his lens, never losing sight of the inspiration and exuberance that the designer has entrusted him with as he paints a visual masterpiece. When I collaborate with Wolf I have complete confidence that he will effortlessly deliver nothing short of stunning images that take on a life of their own. Through his keen sense of style and polished ability, Wolf has added exceptional value to my work. He has mastered the technique of complimenting that which I have created as well as adding another complex layer of beauty which is as unique as it is timeless. "
- Rebecca Ewards
Fashion Designer & Creator of the Poison Candy Fashion Brand
" A photographer always offers a secret, voyeuristic thrill to the viewers of his or her artistic product, but aliased artist Wolf189 elevates the private, sensual moments of his models to extreme voyeuristic levels. The viewer often gets the feeling that not even the photographer was in the room. His skillful composition, framing and lighting capture naturally intimate images that reveal the sadness and desires we all hold inside."
- Sez G. Eros Zine
"Wolf189 knows how to please a girl."
- Royal Cheese Magazine ( Russia )
" WOLF189 captures the soul and the artist in me with his camera. The way he reveals a person and their relationship to the world and their environment is unique, insightful, and magical. Being a visual artist myself means I am picky about visual representation. He always exceeds any expectations. I'm happy to say I've had the privilege to work with WOLF189 on many occasions, and will continue to work with him in the future. "

” Wolf’s deep awe and appreciation for the beauty of women is shown as a constant through out his work. One only needs to look at the ease of the models to get an appreciation of the style of Wolf”
- NUDE Magazine (spring 2008)
" Looking at the works of Wolf189 takes me to these places, these moments, the moments of seduction, the spread of a thigh, a sheet slipping off revealing more, the part of moist lips– the anticipation of more to come. Even Wolf’s more graphic shots are filled with a sexual subtlety. "
- Library Vixen
" Wolf189: "The portraits can be very exciting"
Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix and New York are the current "perfect area" for the adventurous photographer and experimental filmmaker Wolf189 , a man trying to understand the world around him through a job focuses not only on street photography and documentary, but also topics in which sensuous eroticism abounds. And that is to the artist, photography is a chance to discover new angles and ways of seeing life and the beauty that dwells in it. Thus his work fresh, quirky and far with taboos has become a delight for lovers of beautiful women represented in all its glory through the lens of this professional who certainly knows how to rescue & represent exotic sexuality regardless of the context.
