A creative nude photograph isn't an artistic nude photograph
A creative nude project needs an effective dose of originality and study, so that one can create without any help of the digital manipulation, which reinforces its value
A creative nude project needs integrated logistics support, craftsmanship to manage accessories and study locations in case of outdoor photo-shoots.
A creative nude photograph needs to be developed over time, following a clear and determined concept.
A creative nude project needs appropriate funding set aside for materials and assistance during the photo-shoot.
A creative nude project requires excellent technical photographic skills and a profound understanding of lighting, lens management and manual adjustments of a photographic camera.
A creative nude photography is the desire to show your soul, your imagination and your dreams, whilst striving to be unique
Would you define your approach to the theme of nude?
I don’t really like the classic approach to nude photography, I’m much more interested in the form. I like creating fantasy characters, integrating the model and the location that surround them,
or finding a special effect for the composition. I try to distinguish my photographs from the major part of nude photographs that one sees, sometimes I manage sometimes I don’t, but I think that the
desire to create and not adapt to what has already been seen has its positive effects on ones curriculum and on good photography in general.
