I specialize in shoots with groups of nude people depicting activities, sports, games, contests, hiking,etc. Many of my past and current participants are here at ModelMayhem as "models" but understand that what I organize is very different from conventional model/photographer sessions. For one thing there is very little "modeling", more of a free-flow candid approach.
I am interested in just about any females and males as long as you can think outside of the box of the usual "per hour" arrangement. Typically a group goes out for the day and your "fee" is small. But the fun factor is huge. If you enjoy being naked in a natural setting and having fun with others in a non-sexual social setting and you like the idea of having a day of nude freedom then my project, which I call PhotoNaturals, is for you.
I am not looking for any particular body type or age or other human classification. Whatever your shape, you are beautiful to me.
Depending on the size of the group I will usually have a couple of other photographers shooting as well. So if you are a photographer you can get in touch with me as well. I really would like to see more female photographers involved, so please contact me no matter what your experience level. Photographers: just be aware that since this is a social nudist experience the photographers are nude as well and often appear in some of the photos.
To participate you really need to be living in (or visiting) the Bay Area (San Francisco) anywhere from Santa Rosa down to Santa Cruz and out to Sacramento and beyond. (I have done outings near LA and in San Diego and will be expanding in the future)
By now you should have figured out that what I'm doing is not "glamor photography". It may not even be "fine art". But I am pushing towards capturing unusual moments.
I have done about 45 of these events/trips over the last 5 years with a resulting archive of about 50,000 master edited images. The image sets and videos are starting to be presented on our new website as The Naked Club.
I'm developing a yearly event called Bodyfest. It is a culmination of various smaller retreat events we have done and "Nude Beach Party Day". t is a lot of fun. You can get details here:

If you are thinking you might want to get involved please contact me with any other questions you have. The way it works is that I have to have some basic info on you in my database. Then I group people that I think are a good match for an outing. I try to get everyone involved in something at some point.
This project is growing. I am looking for participants, project leaders, ideas for locations and activities, etc. So get in touch if this is your passion.
