ARTISTIC NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ’S
Artistic nudes endure forever. As you will see from the images in my portfolio, I take the time to light and expose your beautiful physique to highlight your assets and minimize your weaknesses. I can completely hide your face from view in shadow to make you anonymous, or we can light it to show that stunning bodyscape is really you.
So if you're looking for an artistic nude photographer to shoot photos of you in the best condition of your life, book a session with Mark Matthews Photography.
What exactly is Artistic Nude Photography?
Artistic nude photography is a term that has come to represent dramatically lit images of the nude male body. White the model is naked the image is valued for its artistic merit, and not so much its sexual allure. Very often the models face is obscured in shadow, allowing the model to remain anonymous.
Who books an Artistic Nude Photography Session?
Artistic nude photography sessions are for males who wish to capture their personal beauty and physiques in an artistic form. Many of my clients hang these images with pride in their homes and offices, and in many cases the anonymity of the image provides the mystery surrounding the “subject”
How old must I be?
You must be 18 years of age and be able to show proof of ID prior to your Photoshoot in order to do a Boudoir Photoshoot.
I am concerned about privacy and safety. Can I bring a friend to my artistic nude photography?
I fully understand your concerns and I will do everything to set your mind at ease. If you want, you are welcome to bring a fun, outgoing friend to assist during the shoot – somebody whom you have fun with when you party – someone who brings the best out of you, and doesn’t judge you.
I am concerned with privacy. How secure are my artistic nude photos? Who will see my photos?
We respect your privacy and we handle you photographs with the utmost care and respect. Your privacy is guaranteed. Apart from the photographer and assistants on set (if any) no-one else will see your images without your consent. Your images will not be posted anywhere without your express written consent.
I have wanted to do this for so long, but I am so very nervous…
Absolutely everyone doing their first artistic nude photography session feels a little nervous, and yet excited prior to their photoshoot. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for you to warm up in the beginning and before you know it you will be having a blast! By the end of the session I always hear from my clients “It was so easy and I had so much fun doing it! I wished I had done this years ago!”
But I don’t have a model’s body and I have obvious flaws…
First of all, none of the people on our website look like that in real life. The images you see are a combination of their looks and my artistic and creative skills.
Additionally I carefully adjust my lights and reflectors to highlight your assets and diminish your weaknesses. And once these stunningly created images are captured, in my editing studio I take great care to enhance the overall image using tasteful and creative retouching and airbrushing of your images, and ultimately you are assured of looking way more stunning in your images than you had ever imagined.
I’m not a model and don’t know how to pose…
I will work with you - advising you on how to move and posing you to accentuate your best features. It always helps to tear out images that you like or would like to recreate. We suggest practicing in the mirror and browsing through some of your favorite magazines to help you prepare. Searching the internet and bringing in magazine tear sheets will help us get a feel for the style and type of photography that you like best. We will do our best to recreate the images that you like.
