Rewarding when done well: photographing nudes

Throughout history, artists have pictured the human form. Nudes are always timeless when tastefully done, especially in black and white, using natural light or simulated natural light.

It is easy to photograph a nude model but it is difficult to do it with taste and meaning. Using a beautiful and professional model, we teach you how to light, how to interact with your model, and how to produce art that takes a fresh look at a subject that will always remain interesting.


Our professional Hamilton studio location ( has easy accessibility, plenty of space, and nearby parking, and provides a great artistic urban environment.
