I have been at this since 1986. I just up and quit in 2000 for various reasons. In 2006 I found I missed and was getting back into the audio/visual industry so I decided to have a go at it again. In May of 2007 I was diagosed with Mutltiple Sclerosis, so now I have something to prove to myself.
Here is a list I put together a few years ago.
The terms used to describe various types of modeling and photography are often poorly defined. Such ambiguity can result in misunderstandings and uncomfortable situations for models, photographers, and other industry professionals. In an effort to clarify terms and reduce miscommunication, here is a list of terms which describe various types of modeling and photography, as well as various styles and states of dress.
This list is not all inclusive and serves only as a guide for models and photographers, so that they may have some common ground by which they may discuss various projects. Please note that the terms are not mutually exclusive, in other words, Fetish may be Semi-Nude, Full Nude, or may not contain any nudity. You should always ensure that the terms of any agreement you make with another individual are explicitly stated in writing.
Fashion Glamour - Pictures where the clothes are the main focus, not the model. Made popular by supermodels.
Figure - The model is the focus, as opposed to what they are wearing. Includes lingerie, sheer, topless, semi-nude, or fully nude work. Generally considered more artistic work, usually involving some degree of nudity. Figure models work with artists for photography, painting, or sculpture. Figure work is often done anonymously, that is the model is not readily identifiable in the final work. The focus of the work is usually the body or body parts, and how they interact with light and textures.
Swimwear/Lingerie - Basic one or two piece, non-sheer swimsuit modeling. Modeling bras, panties, stockings, teddies, etc. Similar to Victoria's Secret Â® catalogs.
Sheer - The model is partially or completely covered by some type of transparent fabric, but body parts such as the nipple are easily identifiable. May be a garment of transparent material which the model wears, or the model may be draped in a sheer fabric.
Topless - As the name implies, the model is generally nude from the waist up. The breasts, including the nipples, are fully exposed.
Semi-Nude - Contains some degree of nudity other than completely nude. Often used synonymously with topless, but may differ in that the breasts may be covered and another part exposed, the buttocks for example. You should state explicitly what is or is not to be exposed.
Full Nudes - Unless otherwise defined, the term nude generally implies full nudity as described below.
Nude - Model is completely unclothed. Breasts, buttocks and genitals are exposed.
Explicit - Full nudity where there is a clear focus on the genitals, often including the model's legs spread.
Erotic - Adult in nature and clearly intended to sexually arouse the viewer, however nudity may be implied rather than actual. While penetration may be implied or simulated, it is usually not shown in graphic detail.
Sexual -Expilicit nudity clearly intended to be sexually arousing to the viewer. May include more than one model, masturbation, or the use of props.
Hardcore - Sexually explicit involving multiple models. Graphic depiction of penetration of one model by another, whether involves genitals, fingers, fists, tongues, or props.
Fetish/Bondage - Fetish photography is adult in nature but not always sexually explicit, and generally centers around a main theme. It tends to be photographed in harsh light and extreme settings, and often includes the use of props.
Examples include bondage, leather, feet, etc.
Playboy/Penthouse - "Playboy-style", "Penthouse-style", and similar terms are poorly defined, and often used incorrectly. Anyone agreeing to model under such terms should make himself or herself completely aware of the style of photography which appears within the stated publication. PlayboyÂ® magazine, for example, contains fashion and glamour photography, including full nudity, partial nudity, topless, lingerie, sheer, and swimwear modeling. Unlike PenthouseÂ®, PlayboyÂ® does not show explicit close-up genital shots, "spread shots, or anything overtly sexual.
