Nude Photography Workshop Photo

Candice takes a break in utterly cold weather--OK, she posed for this!

I just returned home from another successful photography workshop in Moab, Utah. This was my fourth visit to the Moab area, but only my second workshop there—and we had such a great time, we’re doing it again in June and September of this year—though this time I’ll bet it’ll be warmer, as this workshop was a bit chilly for the models and photographers and if we do it again in 2012, we’ll make sure it’s in May.

The Moab area is millions of acres of amazing beauty. Toss in five nude models into the mix and how can you go wrong but capture natural beauty? Landscapes and bodyscapes seem to go hand in hand when it comes to this magnificent part of the world and while I spent most of my time helping out the photographer attendees, I managed to squeeze in a few photos, though they came with a price. That price was both the models and I dealing with the unpredictable weather of the Moab. The day before we arrived, it was 75-degrees Fahrenheit, but once we checked in, you could only find that temperature in my hotel room as we even encountered light snow one late evening.

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.
