It’s not always possible to find a decently secluded spot for art nude in the Derbyshire countryside. Wherever you go there always seems to be a footpath nearby and just as you start stripping off people come wandering along. Now i’m not bothered about being naked outdoors and people wandering along, but when alone it can be very difficult. It’s quite different to being with another person, or in a group.
Over the past few years i’ve managed to find a few good spots in the woods, and this year i’ve found a couple of pretty good places out on the moors. These photos were taken on moorland above the village of Bamford, not too far from Bamford Edge. Across the moor can also be seen Stanage Edge. I also took the photos for my last blog post, Go Topless – Free The Nipple, in the same area. I’m far enough away from the nearest footpath, and have a good view of anyone approaching across the open moor, so i thought i’d give this a go for some nudes.
The two photos in the first gallery are my favourites form the shoot.
These are the ones i kind of like, but have elements that don’t quite do it for me. I’m adding them to show the trial and error that takes place. This happens when you have a photographer and model too, but is a lot harder to get right when trying this on your own.
Finally a few shots showing how alone i was to the point where i could just wander around working out the shots, and taking in the scenery without having to bother getting dressed. In other words, these show the naturist side of me.
