Practical Tips For New Models - Doing Nude Photos
By Arthur Knight
One of the most common questions I get from new models is: "Will nude photos hurt my career?" The short answer is NO, however there are a few But's (pun intended).
Regardless of what some conservative people will tell you, there is not a segment of the modeling industry that I know of that will reject a good model because she has done nude photos. Nearly every top model has shot nude photos from Naomi Campbell to Christie Turlington to Claudia Schiffer. Ultimately a few good nude shots in your portfolio will show your level and diversity as a model.
In the end it comes done to what you are comfortable with and where you are trying to go. You could base you entire career on nudes or never shoot in less than a turtle neck, it is up to you. But be realistic, don't take portfolio for of naky you to apply for a clothing catalog shoot and don't expect to make it big in glamor if your not willing to show a little skin.
