Holiday Photos
« on: November 28, 2014, 12:38:56 pm »
You know what it is like you go on holiday and come back with lots of photo's of each other but none of you together. It is especially difficult if you are on a nudist beach.

I am a retired professional photographer and a naturist used to taking "Unique Holiday Photo's" for couples.
I alway use my new friends own camera, and do not charge, but if you like the results a bottle of wine is always acceptable.   

Contact me for more details

Nice offer, but we use a mini tripod and the camera timer.

Many thanks for the response. I agree that a tripod can and does work, but you never know exactly what you are going to get. Plus of course having to keep jumping up and down does not add to the spontaneity of the moment. and the range of shots possible re somewhat limited.

Best of luck !!

A big thank you to all the couples I have met over the last couple of weeks, although the weather has not been the best we have still managed to get naked and take some excellent photo's around the area.
A special thank you to S & M for a wonderful afternoon last week.
I hope that all my new friends will be going home with a portfolio of "unique holiday photos", some to show the family, and just maybe, some for the private collection !!
If any of you would like your own naked memories of Fuerteventura, do get in touch.
Have a great holiday
PhotoBrian

We usually just accost a passing German & ask him or her to take the photo. To be honest, with a Cannon in program mode, it's hard to mess up. Plus no one has run off to the Fatherland with my camera yet

Magoo, don't underestimate what a professional photographer can do even with with a non-professional camera...real photography is art and has almost nothing to do with the let's-point-and-shot mode that we (most of us...) use for our holliday pictures.  8)

Hi norbertm

Many thanks for your observation, of course you are correct. Whilst a wandering person of any nationality (man or woman), can snap away it is not the same as a professional job.
It is like painting your own pictures how many would you want to hang on your walls ? Thats why we all buy one produced by an artist.
I have made my living taking photographs all over the world, I try not to just "snap away", I listen to what my "New Friends", want and that's what I deliver. Plus hopefully an enjoyable afternoon.

Looks like you was on the dunes at the same time as me as I have only just returned home from corralejo. I got some pictures on the dunes but had to use timer on my camera and balance it on rocks and other things to get the pictures.

I believe you have him confused with "The Toe Man" who was an unrelated supplier of gratuitous beach services.  Thinking on, there could be a profitable opportunity for a joint venture in this

 8) :P Buy a Nikon and use a  cable less remote to take pictures on a small tripod . Remote very cheap and easy to use, just put the Nikon on remote setting and press the small button down to focus and then it will take to picture simpulls as meerkat says. Always lots of passers by willing to help if you do not want to buy a quality SLR and remote. As for Toe Man joint venture, we have come across Toe Man and would not think he needed a partner he has enough going for him without a photographer side kick.
 8) :P Sunpics

OK Guys
You have all had a good laugh at my expense,  including me.
But I can assure everyone that I am not a toe sucking beach stalker with a tripod as a third leg !!
The people who contact me are looking for something better than can be achieved by technology or gadgets.  They are looking for quality professional and artistic pictures that can only be achieved by a professional photographer.
The only difference is we are naturists.

No offence intended mate. Apart from the odd Daily Mail reader, none of us take things too seriously on here & take the pi$$ unmercifully. Sometimes thing do go a bit far & toys get thrown from the pram as I once found out to my cost.

I will be glad to let you fondle my 60D the next time I am on the island. It's a pity the American Star is no more, as it made a fantastic backdrop to beach photography

PS. The Toe man does not actually suck toes to my knowledge, maybe Sunpics could confirm this

I am sorry all, but I do not have an online portfolio. Even if I did it would only be available to contributors.

The whole point of what I offer is complete security of your photo's, that's why I always use your camera not one of mine !! What you do with them thereafter is totally up to you.

Keep having fun in the sun, I know that's what I do.

I wasn't necessarily thinking of naturist photographs, but just a sample of your work for us to make our own assessment.
Please accept my apologies if I mistakenly implied anything different.

I remember about 6 years ago me and my partner walking through Maspalomas dunes taking a few snaps of each other - both naked obviously - when a guy came up to us and offered " I take sexy photo of you".........we declined and headed back to the beach! The timer option has been our preferred method since.  :o
