Full nakedness! All my joys are due to thee,
As souls unbodied, bodies unclothed must be,
To taste whole joys.
John Donne (c. 1572-1631)
, English divine, metaphysical poet. Elegies, "To His Mistress Going to Bed" (1669), composed 1590-1600.

"Al  it was an absolute pleasure working with you today. I can feel myself becoming more comfortable behind the camera and today I sensed my improvement as a model. I can't wait to see the results, you are awesome!" Quetta

Lake Como Nudist Resort, Lutz, Fl.

Lake Como is a beautiful Nudist resort about 1/2 hour north of Tampa. I had the pleasure of staying there for 11 days the beginning of March to play in a volleyball tournament. I decided to also take my equipment this year and try to get some shoots in while I was there.Although taking pictures there is prohibited ( for obvious reasons) I was allowed to photograph under supervision and on private grounds.
Here is a portion of my shoot with Kim Scarlett at Lake Como.

Hand me the wrench!

A cool morning in Fl. just north of Tampa. This junk yard had a variety of interesting stuff to work with. Model Kim Scarlett, MM# 802840, was incredible and never complained about the 40 degree weather.

Being naked approaches
being revolutionary; going barefoot is mere populism.

John Updike (b. 1932)
, U.S. novelist, critic. On the Vineyard, "Going
Barefoot" (1980; repr. in Hugging the Shore, 1983).

This shoot was taken at an old abandoned house in Ravenna, Ohio. It was a fantastic location for photography with the peeling paint and falling plaster contrasting the beautiful lines of my client. af
