In this guide, fine art nude photographer Lauren Naylor shares every thing you need to know about nude photography including tips and tricks on taking inspired shots. In the early s, then in her thirties, she ventured into the Sierra Nevada wilderness, where she created nude photographs and nude portraits —many of them self-portraits of herself and her sisters in a rugged, natural landscape. For a woman at the turn of the century, it was a bold and subversive move; many call it revolutionary. Her relative obscurity comes into even sharper focus when compared to the successes of male photographers like Edward Weston, who famously photographed his muse, Charis Wilson, in the nude. The history of nude photography has, at least to some extent, left out the female perspective—both as photographers and models.
Her flatteringly, feminine portraits focus on the beauty of the female form and have proved a hit with clients in both London and New York. London based photographer Grace Vane Percy has made nude female portraiture her niche. Her signature atmospheric, flattering lit portraits have made her name in this field.
