Privacy comes first with my nude photography and in light of all of the controversy stirring around the recent hacked photos of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, I decided it was time that I blog about how I protect my clients. Celebrity or not, if you privately pose for nude photographs you shouldn’t expect that your identity will be exposed.
I have specialized in elegant and creative nude photography for over two decades and the privacy of my clients is extremely important to me. At my portrait studios my staff and I go above and beyond to ensure that our client’s privacy is protected. One of the biggest differences between my studio and a lot of the new photographers popping up today is that I do not export my images to a photo lab or to a third-world retouching mill to be retouched. Yes, it’s a lot cheaper to export your images to those retouching factories but who knows who is looking at them or where they go from there? It is actually quite scary to think that someone you don’t know has the power to see things you don’t want them to see. I only work with a private local retouch artist that I have been working with and have trusted for years.
Now I still show my fine art images on both of my websites and in art galleries because I stick to a strict set of guidelines that I have followed and have enforced since the beginning of my photography business. To protect my client’s privacy faces are altered, blurred or cropped out and distinguishing marks are removed or altered if the client has expressed that they wish to remain anonymous. My clients that appear unaltered have given me consent and are excited to show off their bodies in such a refined way.
With that being said, I have always and will always photograph the female body in a respectful, classical and sophisticated style. I think of nude photography as something classy that should hang in a gallery or museum. The curve of a woman’s body, to me, is what’s beautiful…not the taboo imagery associated with boudoir photography.
