The Nude Photographer

I remember seeing on the website DeviantArt how some people would categorize themselves as being a “nude photographer.”  What exactly does that mean?  To me, it conjures up a picture of a person who is nude holding a camera and taking photos.
Of course, that probably is not what those DeviantArtists meant by their phrasing (though not having been present when they were doing their work with the cameras, I really can’t say for sure).
Still, there are occasions when the phrase “nude photographer” is appropriate.  Here’s one, as you can see above.  The young woman here is Brooke Lynne, who has been a very fine figure model for a number of years but has lately been turning her attention from being in front of the camera to being behind it.  (It looks like her skill as a photographer is on its way to matching that of her skill as a model, too.)
The photos in this post were made on the coast of Maine last summer, where Erica Jay, Dane St. Clair and I – ready to cross over into Canada to continue our journey the following day – met up with the travelling Brooke and my friend, photographer Dave Levingston.  Also joining us that day was a local model, Dyaphanye.

After Dave and I had photographed the four women, Brooke took up her camera to photograph the other three posing together.  I got one photo of Brooke at work, and made a few photos of the other three modeling from a different point of view, one of which you can see here.  (To see Brooke’s image, click here.  I think it’s better than mine.)
Finally, enjoying it all, here’s a photo of my good friend Mr. Levingston.  Thankfully, he is one photographer who was not nude.  (I know that you’re not supposed to trust people who say “trust me,” but take it from me, folks:  Trust me on this one.)
