I just shoot for fun and not as a business, I have a day job that is nothing to do with photography. I have been published: I shot some lions outside the town hall and a couple of my images were used by the local free paper; of course, they didn't pay me.
I usually work with my wife Good Grace. She very rarely appears in front of the camera but assists with poses and ideas. She appears once below, look for the sunset image. She is also my toughest critic; she doesn't mind me photographing naked women, with or without her, but she wants me to do it well. She provides many of my ideas and also props such as the lacy outfits and the masks. The musical instruments are mostly mine though.
My only shoot style is Nude and my portfolio is mostly naked women, so: do we only shoot naked women? No, we also shoot women with their clothes on, men, flowers, trees, mountains, and various other things. However, we can easily arrange all of the other genres outside of Purple Port. I don't post these other genres here.
At least art nude. Adult is not required but implied, topless, etc is not sufficient.
A shoot with us will be mostly or entirely fully nude. We will occasionally include a few SFW images but only as an extra if time permits. We are not interested in intermediate levels such as topless, lingerie, etc. One exception is that we sometimes use lace items.
We concentrate on non-sexual nudity. We aim for art even if we don't always achieve it.
Our model preferences
These are not absolute and we will sometimes make exceptions but the closer you are, the more likely we are to be interested.
Tattoos - Preferably none. If you have some then the easier they are to hide or edit out the better.
Piercings - Preferably none. Ears acceptable if it is a single small hole. Ideally no earrings for the shoot.
Nails - preferably no extensions. Ideally short and unpainted, the simpler the better.
Pubic hair - all or nothing. Completely natural or completely gone. If in between then the more natural looking the better not landing strips or other designs.
Armpit hair - again all or nothing.
Make up - the less the better.
Other modifications, e.g. breast enlargements, - preferably none.
We are happy to pay a reasonable amount for a nude shoot but prefer it if your rates are stated in your profile so that we don't need to ask. If we need to ask then we may just assume that we cannot afford you and move on.
Our budget is not large so we will not travel a long way for a shoot or offer to pay long distance travel.
Our home is not suitable for photography but we are happy to work in the model's home.
We are happy to work outside in suitable locations (but note the nude requirement).
We will consider mutually convenient studios.
We are interested in studio days.
An on-going interest of ours is nudity and music, particularly classical music. I started the group Naked Music. So, we are particularly interested in models who have and can play, or at least realistically pose with, musical instruments.
TFP and part pay
We are not primarily looking for TFP shoots here but we would consider invitations. The main reason that we are not looking for TFP is that I would not be confident that I could deliver results good enough to be worth your while. However, if you are willing to take the risk, feel free to make a suggestion. Many of the requirements above, even nudity, might be relaxed for a TFP shoot.
We would also consider part pay shoots with the conditions relaxed but your rates would need to be significantly reduced.
