You're female aren't you?

And the point of this question?

I'd assume it is a reference to the level of rationality in the initial response, but I'm not sure.. *kermit sipping tea*:mrgreen:

I have not read the whole thread.

I am married. Have been since I was 21, that makes it 26 years.

I would love to shoot nudes.

For me , I know, it would simply be too much of a hassle because I know it would bother my wife.

So I'll keep it simple and continue to shoot everything else bar other women.

*sigh* :-)

I will say though, aside from fraternizing with other women she is cool with anything else I wanna do or buy. She's a good woman and I am a lucky guy.

Well, that's an understandable assumption but we males can also be rational once in a while. I know that's true because my female (and only) spouse told me so.

Tough. Considering women are one of the most beautiful things in the world. Tough. I would have serious argument, if my wifey would object me shooting women, and I would definetly ignore the outcome of this argument /as I mostly lose all arguments with her - she's just too good in that thing, hahah/.

I used to shoot my wife but she was not really into it, so I decided to shoot models and she was fine with that (while I shot portraits). Then once i had a nude model booked she started asking what I was going to do with the pictures.

I knew something was bugging her, but I could not work out if it was jealousy or something else. My daughter pretty well started niggling too, so I showed her the mood board I keep on pinterest. They both loved the type of shot I had in mind, and since then they have met the models I shoot, and love the results, even the nude shoot.

I think they assumed nude meant pornography, as opposed to the type of shots I really enjoy.

Now we all seem happy, they understand the aim of my work, and I get better working with some great models.

I have been shooting women for about 5 years now. My wife is ok with it and comes with me on the set/location whenever she's available.
How we've come this way?
I have been portraying women non nude for about a year, till the first lingerie shoot occurred. My wife is a psychiatrist, so she likes to talk and we have been communicating a lot about my work, my intentions, my desires my progress (in going towards nude/fine erotica) and that has helped immensely. She loves my work, she is very supportive in communication with family and friends, and as said before, she joins whenever possible. She used to work as a hairdresser (for 15 years) so she's my hair stylist and wardrobe assistant when she's present at the shoot. She being there has made her feel ok with my way of working and my way of dealing with the models. She now knows and realises a lot better what my aims and ambitions are, and she's also more comfortable when she's not able to make it to the shoot.
Often we invite models at our home (not the shooting space) before the shoot. We have a cup of coffee or small dinner whilst make up and hair is being done. This makes both my wife and the model more comfortable.
If there is one thing that she absolutely hates, then it is surprises. Not knowing what when where or with whom beforehand makes her feel very annoyed. This again asks for some discipline from my side (no last minute arrangements) but I'm very much ok with that.

hope this helps for whoever wants to get into 'married-status still wanting to do nude photography' thing.

See my site for my work. There's some blog articles about the couple thing and what I do with photography, but you'll need to dig deep into the blog pages.

I came home from my first nude model shoot and the wife asked me how it went.

I told her it went well, the model was nude when she answered the door and stayed that way the entire time.

I show my wife the images and she was impressed.

Offer to take your wife along ..... introduce her to the model as your " assistant ".

I did that after my third nude shoot ...... and as a result began getting referrals.

It seems models like it when you have a female assistant.

My wife is my assistant, then again we advertise as a husband and wife team so the models all know she is my wife from the get go. We do end up working with a lot of first time models who then decided after a shoot with someone else to only work with us in the future. We have 4 models that I can think of off hand that only work with us at this point.

A lot of good responses. For me it boils down to this, if she isnt cool with it then dont do it. To me my wife and marriage is more important then a picture.

It is true to a degree. The thing is, this is a "test of love" of sorts and I guess we can agree, that testing love is usually a bad thing.

If we establish one thing - and this one should be established - that this is work/thing you do professionally or just with a purpose OF PHODOGRAPHY, there should not be a an issue, really. Wife can dislike it, but she should not bring it to the point of husband refusing to do something just becouse of that dislike.

It's the same if wife would tell to a street photographer: "Why are you spending your time just wondering streets - you can do so much better things during that time, like putting a shelf on, or clean the house".

While I am not arguing, that shelf should not be up there, not letting a man do his photography thing is not a good thing to happen.

And I am not preaching here without knowledge - I shoot models rarely, but when I do, I always get some smirk remarks, that should not be there at all. It is very unpleasant and makes me feel like I am doing something bad. Note, it was not like that at first, but, as time passed, my wifey started to dislike me shooting other women. Which is BS.

I get resistance all the time. People say 'be professional' and 'it's all about trust'...blah. Been married 20 happy years. What it comes down to is your woman's tolerance level. If she doesn't like it, she doesn't like it.

Interesting discussion. For me, it comes to $. Photography is my business so mostly anything I do (lately not many nudes or models though in the past a lot) it is not a hobby, but it is business related. So, as long as I make $$$$ it is all good. Also, I shot female models, male models, gay and lesbian couples. Have not had any problem... Now, if it would be a hobby and I would be leaving on Saturday to take pictures of a nude female model... I can see that would be an issue and frankly, even I would think I am pushing it...

Just wondering how many have had some resistance with the idea of you being married shooting good looking models?

Why would it matter? Either you are happily married and your wife trusts you or she doesn't. If she doesn't and you already know it then it might not be such a good idea for you.
