Motivation Of A New Nude Model
Never Force Nudity As An Issue
Starri posed during one of my Virgin Islands photography workshops.
Not everyone likes their nude body publicly paraded around to the world—and thank goodness, as not everyone maintains their bodies worthy of public exposure. I say the latter light-hearted, as not everyone can control their physique as much as they’d like too, but most all of us understand beauty and the beauty of the human form. So as a photographer, it’s not uncommon for me to question why a model will pose nude, or even consider nudity in photography—in fact, I tend to discourage any new model from posing nude if they haven’t done any nude modeling in the past.
I’m sure many are wondering, how is that possible if you photograph nude women? Simple, I will play Devil’s advocate with any model that has never posed nude to ensure it’s really something she wants to do—as once they’ve posed nude, especially if they’ve signed a model’s release for public exposure, there is no turning back. With that said, I do my damnedest to make sure it’s what a model really wants as we all have done things we later live to regret and I certainly don’t want the fingers pointed at me anymore than anyone else, on why a model removed her clothes for the camera.
