My Ideal Nude Model For Photography

I Still Haven’t Found Her, But I’ve Come Close

Unfortunately for photographers, when it comes to finding that great model for nude photography, we live in a world of shapely clothing where what you see in person isn’t always that same person au natural. However, great photographers can work with just about any physique, though the ideal, nude model physiqueis often preferred by top professional photographers, when it comes to capturing editorial or fine-art nude photography. While a “pro” normally knows what they are looking for in “nude model qualities,” many photographers, especially beginners do not.

While many photographers will associate these ideal nude model qualities with health and fitness, there are models who are just born with natural genes that dictate great talents, though they are the exception. Regardless, if a model is fortunate to have these ideal qualities, it’s still a photographer’s responsibility to capitalize on them by using the proper lighting, composition, camera angles, lens selection, etc., and following the fundamentals, principals and basics of photography.

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.
