Try Fine-Art Nude Modeling

Okay, it's one of those things that you've probably thought about but never really considered actually doing. Now is your chance to give nude modeling a try and even be paid! Many people have thought about how fun and empowering it would be to model nude… give it a try. You get paid, you'll have fun, and you'll get some nice pictures for your portfolio or for someone special.

If you are a woman between 18 & 30, are adventurous, and think you might have the right look, and you live in the greater Puget Sound or Olympic Peninsula area, please contact me. 

I am an experienced fine art landscape photographer who started shooting nudes many years ago. Models report that they enjoyed modelling and felt comfortable during the shoot. They also very much enjoy the images that they receive!

Details:

All sessions are shot outdoors in the great Pacific Northwest. I've shot all over western Washington State, but prefer the beaches and forests of Kitsap, Jefferson, and Clallam counties. There are plenty of secluded places available to us. I am based near Port Ludlow, but can work as far south as Olympia, as far north as Bellingham, and the entire Olympic Peninsula. 

Shoots usually last around an hour. We generally shoot fairly early in the morning to avoid other people. 

Ideally you are a woman in your 20s and have a slim or athletic build and reasonably youthful appearance. Preferably you'll have no tattoos but small ones can be removed in Photoshop. No MUA (Make-Up Artist) or hairstyling is needed. Natural hair usually worn down, only eyeliner for makeup. Other makeup tends to look blotchy in black and white photography.

My aesthetic if for the natural, "Garden of Eden" look. These shots are definitely NOT pornographic. One of my intentions is to create classic outdoor nude imagery that can stand the test of time. I want to show the innocence, fun, sensuality, and playfulness of being nude in nature. I show women who are strong, in control of their lives and situations, and who are comfortable with their bodies and surroundings. These are powerful, confident women expressing themselves in ways that bring them joy.

Many of my images do not show faces. For those of you considering nude modeling for the first time, being anonymous is often an easy and fun way to try nude modeling!

Your comfort is paramount. Please feel free to bring an escort or friend to our shoots if you would be more comfortable. They will be put to work keeping an eye out for other people.

All models will sign a model release form, and all models must prove they are at least 18 with government ID. Pay is $100 per hour plus any ‘post-processed’ images (hopefully 3 or 4 keepers but you never know). You will get copies of only the 'keepers' and not all shots taken during the shoot. The model release form has all information and we would agree on all aspects of the session beforehand.

All sessions will be done outdoors. Most will be at various North Kitsap and Hood Canal beaches (be prepared to do a minor bit of beach walking to find the best logs). The Olympic National Park, Sequim, Port Angeles and other forests and beaches might work if you live there and are willing do a bit of hiking.

You can see my work at my website but please know that if you click that link you will see nude images! Do not click the link if viewing nudity is offensive to you, if you are underage to view nudity, or if viewing nudity is illegal or unsafe where you live:  http://www.benaturalphotography.com

Please email (benaturalphotography@gmail.com) if interested in modeling and we can schedule a time and location, weather depending. I am doing limited shoots each summer at this point, so please contact me early if interested. If comfortable with it, please include a head and body shot (clothed is fine!). 

I only shoot nudes during the summer for obvious reasons of warmth and very early sunrises to help us avoid people (we often shoot just after sunrise). Feel free to contact me at any time of the year though.

Hope to hear from you!
