Once again, this weekend we’re off to our top secret location for another shoot with (in my opinion) one of the country’s best nude models – Rosa Brighid. The location is a private and secluded smallholding in rural Warwickshire with a beautiful mill race stream, 2 lakes, a barn, stables, lakeside hut, boat, and the most beautiful old trees. There are still a couple of spaces – get in touch if you’d like to come along.
There’s been a great deal of controversy over the last year or so about the apparent gender-biased censorship by Facebook. This largely centres on the alleged hypocrisy in the way male nudity (or partial nudity) is treated more leniently than female partial nudity by Facebook’s censors and their lack of a coherent explanation for this.
For example, post an image of a topless woman on Facebook and there’s a fair chance it will be reported and removed fairly quickly but if you post an image of a topless man, or even extreme violence (such as beheadings or beatings) and it will stand a greater chance of being left alone.
If this also strikes you as a bit unfair, perhaps you’d like to join me in using the image below to cover the “offending” bits of any photos you fancy posting…
Just right click and save it onto your ‘puter for future use – go on, you have my blessing.
This is how it looks in situ on an actual image I posted on Facebook of the stunning Rosa Brighid…
Mention a nude photography shoot to some people and eyebrows may be raised, ribs may be nudged, and schoolboy giggles may arise. But the nude shoots we organise at Fotofilia are very much about using exquisite and appropriate lighting to accentuate all that is beautiful about the human form.
And it really is beautiful. Just to keep things nice and equal, for our “Bodyscapes” studio evenings, we bring in one male and one female model who, as far as possible, best exemplify physical perfection. These are just a few images from one of our Bodyscapes workshops back in November 2012 but we’re running another on Monday 29th July. The male models in the images shown here is Joel Hicks http://www.joelhicks.com/
Needless to say, there are other images that I couldn’t show here.
