I am pretty sure posing nude has not "pigeon-holed" me
I am pretty sure the Internet as a whole loves nude anything
I am pretty sure I do not want to see a nude pigeon hole......
I think as long as girls have boobs and guys have cameras...we will continue to see naked boobs on the internet...no matter someones opinion in a forum might say otherwise.
Lots of girls get naked for money, lots of girls like shooting nude because they just like to...not sure why it matters. If you don't like seeing nudity turn on work-safe mode and problem solved.

I can only speak for myself but the biggest challenge for me is to model nude, so thats what I enjoy the most.

Is there was not an excess of nudes... I don't think there would be more nude models then regular models on MM... Juuust sayin. Also, this sprung from a search where no nudes was selected, and vuala - 75% of the people I clicked on - nudes came up. If you enjoy it by all means do it, if not then don't.

Just for the fun of it I decided to test the OP's 75% theory. There are 2642 female models on MM within 10 miles of Vancouver and 373 of those shoot nudes for a grand total of 14%.

i don't shoot a lot of nudes but that has nothing to do with not liking them. it has more to do with me wanting to have a purpose in doing them. but as for working with models i prefer to work with models who are open to posing nude. Why? because they aren't worried about a nip-slip or a whole boob showing. therefore, they commit to the shoot and they deliver what i'm looking for.

I am primarily a nude model, and I absolutely love it. Nothing is more comfortable to me than prancing in front of a camera in nothing but my own skin, and it has allowed me to learn so much about myself. But, on the flipside, I have found that it is a lot harder for me to find work in other genres. I am short, so commercial modeling is out of the question. But there are times when I would like to stretch my wings and try something new, something challenging. Modeling with clothing is way more intimidating to me than modeling nude. I am *slowly* trying out shoots that don't involve nudity at all, which is a whole different ball game.
Do I feel a bit pigeon-holed? Sometimes. But I love nude modeling too much to get frustrated about that. It's way too much fun. ^_^

I believe it when people say this, but I don't get it. I prefer to shoot full nudes as part of a session, but when possible, I also include partially nude, lingerie, and fully clothed shots. I enjoy the variety. But, I'm more comfortable asking a nude model to put clothing on for part of a shoot than I am asking a clothed model to take everything off.

I have 2 profiles here on MM. One is my main portfolio with no nudes and one is my alternate portfolio (this one) with nudes. Plus I also have my own website with no nudes and more commercial shots.
I only use my main portfolio (with no nudes) or personal website when submitting for non-nude castings. I use this profile when submitting for casting that involve nudity. This way I am showcasing pictures that are relevant to the casting call.

Nudity: Models don't have to do it. But other models do.
Nudity: Photographers don't have to shoot it. But other photographers do.
The great power common to both is the power of choice.
Ultimately, it is up to you, as an individual, to choose which path to go.
It doesn't have to be a pigeon hole.

Pretty much all my work is nude. Started that way; never really moved out of it. Would I work in clothes, yes; do I care if I don't, not really. I suppose I consider it a specialty, not a trap.

shooting nudes is fun. and sometimes it can be downright sexy. i have models who throw a fit if i try to make them wear clothes. they just are happier without them and who am i to complain?
nudes is one way for models to get paid around here so that could explain some of what you see.
regarding models if i see they do nudes i make the assumption that they'll be more flexible and easier to work with. generally they are free spirits.

I have no problem with nudes; in fact, I have been known to enjoy them.
What I can't stand is lame photography.
