“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” – Edgar Degas
There are many different reasons why someone would want to make a nude portfolio.
The most common desire is for a visual document of a period in their lives. Many people regret not having photos taken when they were younger. Consequently, they want photo shoots that will prevent greater regret later. You want to feel beautiful, and a portfolio can help you recall this moment in time.
A true quality nude portfolio starts with trust. You have to trust your photographer to make you look sexy, desirable, young, feminine or masculine. You do not want to trust blindly. We are all, in essence, beautiful beings, and should always be, first and foremost, respected by our photographer. Respect will build trust; it allows you to feel relaxed, and draws out your inner beauty and confidence as an individual. Only then will your body speak – through photographs.
The human body is always fascinating, tantalizing, seductive, mysterious, and desirable. And only a skilled photographer can capture your beauty in a manner you deserve.
