Between glamour photos and the more formal naked figure photography lies erotic, documentary and personal photography. Are these pictures erotica, art or porn?
Shooting nude glamour in a scrap yard. What could go wrong?
Photographer: There’s a big wave coming!
Model: What wave?
Photographer: That one.
Photographing nude women in a scrap yard full of bits of sharp, oily metal. Not easy but the shoots produced some great pictures.

Photographing location nudes is always challenging (and fun) but does need a certain amount of planning. Ideally you will be working with a model that you are familiar with and in a location that you have visited regularly. That way you’ll be prepared for the idiosyncrasies of both. Some models that I work with are downright blasé about public nudity and would happily walk naked through the centre of town. I am continually looking over my shoulder for the blue flashing lights. Others can be embarrassed by a bloke and his dog appearing when they are fully dressed, but both need to feel relaxed.
Location Nudes – Deserted Buildings
The walls seem to hold echoes of the past. It is easy to visualise the ghosts of previous occupants wandering through their empty rooms. Maybe it takes a creative leap to see them as attractive naked women but when photographing location nudes you can capture whatever you want. This is about interpreting an idea to create an interesting image
Having finally taken the plunge and given up my studio, there seemed no other way to get me out of its cozy confines I booked model Meg for a location photography shoot.
