Nudist UK:- Hi Scott, thank you for agreeing to be interviewed, and also many thanks for your valuable tips about photographing nude models’ (which you can find here)
Scott: You’re welcome
Nudist UK: How did you get into photography?
Scott:-I’ve been interested in photography since I was 14, but became really interested in photographing people about 3 years ago.
Nudist UK:- What made you ‘specialise’ in nude photography?
Scott:-People are interesting to photograph period. But I find the human body interesting and beautiful. And it’s possible to get a greater connect with the subjects you are photographing when they are naked. This is doubly the case when the photographer is naked too.
Nudist UK:- Are you a naturist?
Scott:-Yes I am. I came late to naturism, but now i love it. I’m a frequent visitor to a naturist spa in Brighton and love the freedom from clothes.
Nudist UK:- Does your family know about your ‘speciality’ if so, what do they think?
Scott:- Yes, my partner knows and approves, although I haven’t managed to persuade her to take part yet!
Nudist UK:- Tell us about your first time photographing someone naked, were you nervous?
Scott:-Very! Photography is very challenging and i didn’t want to fuck it up and fail to deliver the required photos. The fact that model was naked didn’t make much difference to that though. A lot of people don’t believe this but when concentrating on taking photos it drives everything else out of your mind. It’s only if you come out from behind the camera and start chatting to a naked person that the normal human reaction to the situation occurs 😉
Nudist UK:- Why do your models want to be photographed, is it just for their portfolios?
Scott:- The professional models do it for the money – obviously. The amateurs seem to do it for a variety of reasons. A need for photos for dating sites is one. Another is their exhibitionism. Another a desire to push boundaries.
Nudist UK:– Have you ever had a model come on to you, or has a relationship started as a result of an assignment?
Scott:- Yes, several times. Never with a professional though. Two instances come to mind. Once I was taking very explicit nude photos of a lady with her partner present (open leg in fact) when her partner upped abd left for work. She then said she thought it unfair that i was clothed and she was naked. So I stripped off. She then told me that she had an open relationship. I’m only human!
In the second case i was taking photos of a lady for her dating account. She’d said she wanted to get some photos of her nude. We’d hardly started and she was seemingly reluctant start to undress. I asked her what was the problem, and she said she needed something to focus on looking at my crotch. So we stripped together and took the photos. We had a casual relationship for several months until she moved away.
Nudist UK:- Where do you find your nude models?
Scott:- Professional websites, and online advertising.
Nudist UK:- Have you experiences any jealousy from a partner, over photographing other people naked?
Scott:- Fortunately, no.
Nudist UK:- And on the same note, have you experienced any jealousy from a models partner?
Scott:- Again, no.
Nudist UK:- We would love to head this interview ‘Confessions of a nudist photographer’ Do you have any confessions????
Scott:- Yes. In the two instances when the model came into me, I had sex with them. This has happened a few times when I have photoed couples as well. But I never initiate such situations!
Nudist UK:- Where is your favourite holiday destination, naturist or otherwise?
Scott:- New Zealand.
Nudist UK:- Thank you for talking to us.
