I often get asked if I do nude shoots and if I have nude prints. Yes….and no. Yes I have been nude for shoots but my prints are limited to implied nudity. Why? Because I want to. Do I recommend it? Hell yes. I think that it’s important to learn about your body and how it works and really looks. It helps me to grasp body structure and posing ideas as well as builds confidence. Now, I’m not saying that you should just go off prancing around naked everywhere (unless that’s your thing of course). I am also not saying that everyone should shoot with random photographers naked. I believe in safety first. I only shoot this way with people I know and trust that I have built a professional relationship with. This is not only confidence building but also humbling. Even just shooting some pics with your phone in a mirror can accomplish this. On the one hand you can end up with some beautiful artistic shots that make you feel like a beauty queen. Then on the flip side you will get some pics that will show off every stretch mark, pimple, scar, lump, bump, and wrinkle, crinkle, and cellulite dimple you have. As a pro model and cosplayer I do believe that it is important to recognize your humanity and the reality that you are just as flawed as the newbie who criticizes themselves and emotionally beats themselves up with feelings of inadequacy. At the end of the day, we are all the same. People are people, art is art, and we are of peace…Always.
