Intimate Nude Portraiture - Video Series

Have you ever wanted to get into nude portraiture but not known how to get started?

Want to create artistic nude images but not sure how?

This video series demonstrates the techniques and tricks I have developed as a professional nude portrait photographer. I run through a comprehensive introduction that outlines getting started, styles of Intimate Portraiture; finding and working with models; waivers & a general overview.

We then take you through a series of 5 real life nude portrait shoots. Intimate Portraiture is a diverse and challenging form of photography. The photoshoots and models have been specifically designed to cover a variety of lighting situations, body types, styles of portraiture as well as using a range of equipment and techniques.


Shooting in a hotel is a common choice for beginners as it provides a private space which often contains useful deisgn features. The cramped space and mixed lighting can be challenging -- in this shoot I work through these issues, showing how you can create a range of images using available light, small speedlight flashes, and continuous lights.

We shoot in the bed, window frame, lounge as well as in the shower and bath tub. I run through a series of poses that are great for first time models, as well as more advanced and revealing poses.


Shooting outdoors in a public place presents unique challenges and opportunities. In this sunrise shoot we had a male and female model, what we shot individually and as a couple. As well as demonstrating poses and lighting techniques to deal with the rapidly changing light conditions, I talk through the best way to scout locations & shoot publicly to minimise disruptions and interruptions. In this shoot we use available light, reflections, speedlights and a variety of modifiers including softboxes.


Shooting at home can be a great as it is a comfortable and familiar location for the subject. However it can also be cramped and difficult to find pleasing backgrounds for your images. Here I run through a variety of poses and locations to shoot, demonstrating how to balance indoor and outdoor lighting, how to make high key images easily, and how you can reveal and conceal using posing and lighting.


In this comprehenisve hour long segment we run through several techniques to create dynamic images using simple equipment. We use speedlights, studio strobes, black and white backgrounds & a range of modifiers. You will learn flattering poses to hide problem areas and dynamic poses that yield fantastic results. We also demonstrate the use of baby oil and water beads to add texture and depth to the images.


In our final hour long segment, we head to a forrest to create some beautiful Intimate Portraits in nature. This shoot took place during harsh afternoon sun, giving us the opportunity to show light softening and modifying techniques. Here we augment, overpower, soften and fill in the available light to get the amount of shadowing desired. We also talk through posing, angles and finding backgrounds that will yield beautiful results.
