In this guide, fine art nude photographer Lauren Naylor shares every thing you need to know about nude photography including tips and tricks on taking inspired shots. In the early s, then in her thirties, she ventured into the Sierra Nevada wilderness, where she created nude photographs and nude portraits —many of them self-portraits of herself and her sisters in a rugged, natural landscape. For a woman at the turn of the century, it was a bold and subversive move; many call it revolutionary. Her relative obscurity comes into even sharper focus when compared to the successes of male photographers like Edward Weston, who famously photographed his muse, Charis Wilson, in the nude. The history of nude photography has, at least to some extent, left out the female perspective—both as photographers and models.

When it comes to studying nude photography , there definitely seems to be a preference for shooting in black and white over colour. It is perhaps because the former allows the artists to better engage with the great contrasts and beauty of the human body. From giants of 20th century art right through to very modern photographers, the artists curated here all bring something exciting to the medium. In this image the photographer Philbert offers us a vision of the two sexes in perfect harmony, two sides of the same coin, where each individual draws strength and power from the other to create a joyous whole.
