“An artist is one who can see divinity in nudity!” ” ― Ramana Pemmaraju

I, sort of anyway, think of myself as an artist and strongly believe that nudity can be divine. And the one thing I’ve learned in more than thirty years as a professional photographer is that communicating with your subject is the single most important aspect of portrait photography. Nowhere it is more important than in intimate portraiture. The best way to get images that both the photographer and client will both be happy with is to find common ground on the concept they hope to achieve.

Building a relationship begins from the first time I talk with or meet a potential client. Some clients are comfortable in a setting when they may be wearing less clothes than normal, such as the client above, while others may be more shy. If that describe you, check out this blog post: It’s Only Natural to Be Shy. That’s why I believe communications between client and photographer should begin before making photographs, which is why we suggest for anyone who might have any questions about how we approach intimate portraiture should schedule an informal meeting at a nearby Starbucks to answer all of the questions they might have.

Another way that I help to increase communications between me and the client during a shoot is to show them some of the images on my camera’s preview screen as we make them. I don’t show every shot, because it slows the creative process, just the ones I really like. When a client sees how great she looks, it gives her confidence and makes the shoot progress smoother producing better portraits.
