Model Candice in Moab Photography Workshop

I just returned from my fifth photography trip to the Moab since I first started going there three years ago and I wanted to share some of my nude workshop photos with you. Though my first two trips to the Moab were for a private instruction and my own personal photography, this one centered around one of my photography workshops in addition to my daughter and I working on our first photography book together.

While there are many places to explore around the Moab area, I tend to focus in the area known as the Canyon Lands, public property managed by the Bureau of Land Management. These are public access lands managed by the Federal government that encompass 1.8 million plus acres. We did stray off to other areas on this trip outside the Canyon Lands, but you’ll have to join us in Sept. to know those “secret” spots, as we don’t like to publicize where we’re shooting. Working with models is a lot easier without spectators and all it takes is one distraction to cause someone to miss their footing in this rugged environment—injuries are something we work hard at preventing and safety is always first!

Rolando Gomez Philosophy on Nude Photography
Editorial Nudes is not a website where you’ll find pornography, nor is this a website where models are underage, this is a website that showcases another genre of my art, though I want to clarify, nudity should never be a requirement for photography. Nudity is not for everyone, but for those that can appreciate the beauty of the human form and can handle it with maturity and common sense. I hope you’ll enjoy how I view nudity through my camera lens, often in a more editorial format. Read more about my philosophy on nude photography here.

Photographer Helmut Newton Had It Right On Nude Photography
While many famous photographers are known for other genres of photography, such as fashion, commercial, landscape and photojournalism photography, almost all have shot a nude photograph at some point in their careers. Whether it was fashion nude, editorial nude, Playboy nude, fine-art nude, implied nude, or some form of nude photography, some photographer captured a nude photo somewhere.

Then there were those like Helumut Newton, who were catapult into more fame for their nude photography than their commercial or fashion magazine photography. It’s been said that Simon de Pury, the head of the New York/London auction house Phillips de Pury & Company, while having a discussion with Helmut Newton about the then upcoming inaugural show for his Zurich gallery, asked Newton, “…What else do you have?” Newton replied, “My landscapes, but nobody wants to see those.”

Newton was correct and soon “Sex and Landscapes” was conceived for that inaugural show in 2001. While undoubtedly the late Newton has help put the “PC” in nude photography over the years, it’s not that nude photography is so bad in our private conscious, it’s the difficulty of the use of the word in our vocabulary and the use of nude images in our visual arts—like a fear, our own society is the guilty culprit and it’s time for us to “grow up” and accept the beauty nude photography brings, especially when captured correctly.
