|Couples – Classical Art Nudes – Click an image for a full view.|
“Having a Christian white middle class up-bringing, it is unnecessary to point out that I suffered problems with nudity for many years. It took a long time for me to accept looking at nude art as OK, and even longer to accept my body in its raw form. My partner, being European has no problems at all and will happily strip to change clothing in less than private locations without qualms.
I knew Beau for years before we did this shoot, I’ve always loved his work, and all of it is so tasteful, but I personally never had the courage till now. The experience was brilliant for us (both me & my partner).
Not only did we get these amazing images at the end, the day was fun, and funny, nerve-wracking and exhilarating. I really did feel like the most beautiful woman alive at the time, not sexually (even thought my loving man choice was there), but spiritually.
Beau’s professionalism and Gayle’s humour were a great mix, and it only took a few clicks for us to relax and get into the mood.
The amazing effects he created after the shoot also added to the bewilderment, with so many beautiful shots, we still haven’t been able to choose which ones to print!
Nude photography is a great experience, even if you don’t want to use the end result on you wall.
It is so profoundly confidence boosting I recommend it to anyone who has ever suffered self esteem issues (so that means everyone).
Beau really does have a knack for presenting you to yourself in such an unexpectedly beautiful light that you can’t help but love your body and see it the way others do when you view the images. I’m not talking about photo-shopping, I’m talking about viewpoint, lighting, mood creation, its all so amazingly romantic and perfect – some people just have too much talent! “
