"Are you a nude photographer?" - humor

Postby TomCofer » Wed Mar 09, 2016 3:21 am

I was asked again the other day, "Are you a nude photographer?"

I always answer that question with one of two answers:

1. "No. I tried that once but I found it too awkward and distracting. My subjects kept looking at my penis instead of the camera." :lol:

2. "No. I'd only be a nude photographer if it was fine art. I've seen myself nude. Trust me, it ain't fine art. :lol:


I've found that most people that ask this question are a bit slow or they just don't appreciate my sense of humor.

Love the post. There are so many genres and so many kinds of photographers not all of them even involve taking photos of people at all. And that's why the post is so funny, the all too common question about photographing nudes. I've photographed portraits, motocross, equine events and most recently stretched into small product work and still the number one question asked by men when I am first introduced as a professional photographer is this one. Now, I've nothing witty to add to the conversation here but I'm thankful to have the witty replies when the question is inevitably asked of me in the future. Thanks!

Darn! Duck, I never thought of that... using a stand-in like they do in the movies. :lol:

Guess it would depend upon who/what your subject(s) are and how "professional" you are. :D
