I want to do nude photography. I have tried to convince several friends to pose nude for me but none of them has ever agreed.
I remember the day I bought my first camera. I was accompanied by a friend and his FPPF (Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation) classmate. They were surveying me from head to toe while on our way to Hidalgo, then went cheeky on me. They kind of jokingly asked me to pose nude for them. I thought for a second.. and replied a resounding “No!”.
So yes, I knew how nerve-wracking it was to be asked, just to be asked, by that question. I know it’s going to be double the work convincing girl friends so I am posting this as the official classified ad open for the male species who dares to be naked in front of
me the camera! He is preferred to be the imperfect kind—beer belly, long coarse beard, can be bald, looks grumpy and exudes high level of testosterone. He should be comfortable not only with being, but also with moving around, undressed.
I would like to work closely with the model and will definitely entertain his ideas to come up with the best nude photography concept.
PS: Had the two FPPF boys asked me now, I could have said yes.
