USA

Man, I have lost track! Have been doing it for at least two years now.

5. Do you mind people knowing that you have done nude shoot before?
No I don't mind. Even my family knows.

7. Do you feel more confident after doing nude shoots?
Some days. I have a lot of mental health challenges and if I'm not in a good place I can nitpick my body apart. Other days, when I'm in a good place, I am so proud of what I can accomplish.

8. Which is your most ideal place to do a nude shoot? (Studio, hotel, home, beach, forest, park, town... etc)
I love doing forest work. It's very private. In a home for domestic nudes work well too! I will shoot anywhere where it is safe.

Always have a lookout and be secluded. Scope out locations first and make sure to have a cover up so you can hide if needed.

Not for a nude shoot. I always do reference checks and bring an assistant for my work.

11. Do you allow photographers to touch you in order to pose you during photoshoot?
I typically ask them to use my assistant to help pose me if they need me to have any changes (hair, jewelry etc). This is not to say that is always the case, but I need to have a lot of trust with my photographer in order to allow them to touch me.

12. What usually go through your mind when you're doing a nude shoot?
"suck in your gut, point your toes, arch your back *farther *, don't forget to point your toes SMILE AT THE CAMERA"

No. I get tired or thirsty/hungry and usually would ask for a small break. Never bored!

I would say probably the time I did a nude shoot in a field right next a road.

Yes there was one time where I wanted to try to do more adult content and I was very unhappy with both the results and my own personal emotions after the shoot.

17. Can you share some tips or tricks for doing a good nude shoot?
I would recommend making sure you are comfortable with your body. With nude shoots, there is a lot of vulnerability involved and you don't want to feel uncomfortable with any part of it, if at all possible.

18. Do you fast before doing a nude shoot? If yes, how long do you fast for?
I usually eat a light snack like a granola bar before a shoot but never really fast. It's more important that I feel good and don't pass out!

19. Will you still be doing any nude shoot in future?
For sure!

20. To you, is an implied nude same as nude shoot and can you give some explanation?
An implied nude can be the same. I tell people that once my clothes come off that I consider it a nude shoot, even if you don't take any images of breasts/nipples/genitalia.

21. What would you advise models who intend to start doing nude shoot?
Do your research on the photographers you want to work with! Reference check and make sure their Port is something you can appreciate.
