Simply call or email at pure-nude-art.com to start with.
If you have specific ideas in mind, you may also wish to send us
a link to some images or include some in your email. It's a
great idea to include some of your own pics, as they can
generate ideas that will be specific to your personal style.
Discuss the date with your significant other - we
are happy to have your partner with you, especially if you are inexperienced
with nude shoots. We can always work out a good time for you
alone or together.
Be honest. Tell us what you would like to achieve from the
photographic shoot. If you would like some images for yourself,
for your partner, for your home, for your brag book, for a
modeling folio, for an opportunity to be a part of an art book
or an art exhibition, etc... etc... let us know.
If you want a series of photographs with your partner, or always
wanted to just feel brave and alive, or wanted to catch your
figure before gravity won the inevitable battle - tell us.
If you are thinking about getting your first tattoo, let us
photograph you beforehand - if you are ready to tell the world
you will not be stopped - we want to hear.
In this digital age, anyone can shoot explicit images, but few
rarely care about capturing a moment, a breath, a thought, your
vulnerability, your innocence, your power.
It's not just the ability to pose someone - you'll understand
that in minutes if you don't already - it's about mastering
lighting to match the mood, create an atmosphere, working with
you to create your image of you, not someone else's image of
|How can I be best prepared for the photo session?
If you are coming to the studio, a little
preparation the night before helps enormously. Clean hair makes
a world of difference, and shaving anywhere that needs to be
shaved, gives enough time for annoying rashes to disappear. Tan
lines are very annoying, but please; no need for a tanning
salon. Just bring some foundation and powder. Talcum powder will
do if you don't have makeup powder. Just call us with any
Pack a bag with accessories that might include
hats or scarves, hair items including a brush, pins, combs,
bands, a robe, sandals, body lotions, moisturizers, oils,
tissues etc... and any other items you may want as props in some
of the photographs.
Call us as you are about to leave home for the
photo shoot, and if your partner isn't with you, call your
partner when you arrive, during the first hour of the shoot and
as soon as you are on the road to go home or to your next
appointment. Everyone needs to feel included and secure at all
times, and it's the little things that help.
Remember to arrive with no makeup on (bring it
of course), and be aware of elastic or tight clothing marks
before the photo session as pressure marks can take hours to
disappear. Real jewelry is best left at home, but prop jewelry
should be brought with you, but not worn.
Outdoor locations require a little more
preparation. A large water bottle or two, a few older towels (in
case you get mud on you and need to rinse off), bug spray, hair
spray, especially if windy, walking shoes to protect on rough
surfaces, and it should all be in a waterproof bag. A more
complete list is available
"I had such a great shoot with you yesterday! You are very
professional, never unsure of what you are doing, and always on
top of things. You have a good eye for what looks good. I
couldn't have asked for a better photographer, not only because
of the pictures, but because of your personality. You have a
great sense of humor while remaining to offer very helpful
advice. Thank you for all of the kind words yesterday and today,
they mean more than you know.
I envy the models you will work with when you go back to
Australia, and I better be top of your list when you come back
to the US"
