I have done several photoshoots with Hope. On this page, she demonstrates her versatility as a model, doing a nude photoshoot outdoors. Posing nude in nature is a classic theme of both art and pin-up modeling. Playing the role of the goddess Venus, she successfully tackles the portrayal of beauty and sensuality that is parallel between the landscape and the female figure.
These images were shot in both North and South Carolina, as well as Tennessee. Originally from Asheville, NC, we spent a weekend in western North Carolina doing a nude photoshoot outdoors each day. We found fields of flowers, rivers, and waterfalls.
Hope is a fine-arts major. She began working with me at the age of 19 and we have done at least ten shoots. We have shot in the mountains, at a waterfall, and at an abandoned Buddhist monastery. She has a knack for posing with naturally in any setting. One of the techniques my models use is to imagine you’re trying to get someone’s attention from a distance, but don’t overdo it. In other words, don’t look like you’re trying to get their attention, just get it.
