I joined the United States Army back in 1987, almost two years after the introduction of the Nike Air Jordon shoes, but I wasn’t able to afford a pair until 1988 when I was stationed at Lee Barracks with the 3rd battalion, 8th Mechanized Infantry Division in Mainz, Germany. While these shoes didn’t turn me into a Michael Jordan where I could dunk baskets, they saved my knees as our physical fitness program often consisted of running almost 22 miles per week, especially during our 8.4-mile monthly battalion runs.

  2. Rolando, your photography is breath – takingly beautiful. I am so glad that I found your art. I have switched from film to digital, and my first camera is also a point and shoot…it’s a Sony though. For the longest time, I held off not even considering shooting nudes because I didn’t think the project would be received seriously, but you have definitely proven that wrong. You have given me a whole new outlook on my summer photography projects. Thank you, good luck in the future, and God bless.
    Sincerely, Mia Scotia.

    • Thank you for the nice comments! Rolando

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.
