fotografm

In a recent post http://allablur.co.uk/a-model-for-another/ I outlined how for the first time I became a model for another person. That person was fotografm, a photographer from Berlin who mainly shoots men, most rather younger and more beautiful than myself, but also someone like me who indulges in self portraiture, nude self portraiture, which is how we became to know of each other perhaps 10 years ago through our presences on flickr.

These are my photographs of fotografm.

 

Exploring a portraiture collaboration in Brighton

Peter

Peter runs a naturist B&B in Brighton. We got together at his place to chat about the possibility of forthcoming collaborations in anticipation of the onset of warmer weather. Unusually for a first meeting I took my camera and we spend a half hour or so briefly touring his flat in his natural naked state and I took the opportunity to get him used to the idea of me pointing my camera at him.


I chose to fit in with the local dress code. I guess Peter is accustomed to having other people trotting around his place naked but this was all rather new for me because I have not previously shot anyone while being myself nude. I really can’t say the experience affected the shoot at all unless it was a positive one because I have to express that, considering the available time, I am very happy with these images.
