I just got sent these images from a location art nude shoot I did on my last visit to the UK around May. I really love doing outdoor nudes, particularly in beautiful locations like this one. There is something very liberating about being naked in nature and feeling the earth beneath your feet and the breeze on your skin (sorry that sounds a bit cheesy! haha). And look at how amazing those old trees were!
For some reason I get booked for this style of work much less since I moved to the US. I don’t know if it’s because there is less of a demand for art nude models in California or if photographers here just don’t know that I do this sort of work! I would say in Europe I shoot more of this than anything else except for hairdressing and random commercial stuff!
I thought I might share a quick story about these images - they have been sat in a folder on my laptop since late 2007, along with quite a few others from the same shoot and I never posted them anywhere until now.
It was a very weird shoot for me in which the photographer pushed me into shooting angles and poses that I was not comfortable with (crotch shots etc). Back in 2007 I was a lot less confident than I am now and after still being pushed, after saying I’d rather not, I just begrudgingly went along with it (*facepalm*). I can only look back and berate myself and consider it a lesson learned. Don’t ever let people make you feel like you have to shoot something you’re not happy with.
Anyhoo, as a result I look horribly uncomfortable in 95% of the images and that combined with the fact I didn’t really want to promote the photographer made me just put the folder in my archives and never look at it again.
Fast forward to this week and I was looking for images I’d shot of this beautiful, one of a kind hand-painted torsolette from High Gloss Dolls. I realised this was one of the only times I’d shot it and ended up going back through the pics and found a couple I liked. It’s odd for me to see myself in images where I look so unsure of myself, I kinda like the slightly what-am-I-doing face that would be a challenge for me to replicate if I was intending it!
I still may not have posted them but it turns out the photographer is no longer shooting and has disappeared from the internet for several years now, and their site now forwards to some religious teaching site O_o
/edit. I have really improved my skill at eyebrow-plucking since then. eep.
