John is a hobbyist photographer who specialises in Art Nude, Fashion and Model photography. He also does Landscapes if he’s already there, Nature too if something flies out in front of his camera.
He is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and an active member of St Andrews PS.
His presentation tonight explores the ins and outs of nude photography, that is … “what is nude photography and how to get started?”. It examines the main genres and its sub-cultures, the difference between studio and location work. It demonstrates the difference in themes using digital and print methods, it follows through with how to book a model, what to expect and achieve. It covers subjects like cost and the different types of payments, also how to act during an actual shoot. It lists the Do’s and Do Not’s of working with models, what to expect when working in the studio and what to expect when working on location, camera settings and how to deal with weather. The presentation also deals with composition and editing, and finally how to build a portfolio.
