Surfaces and Strategies – Shoot Mod3#18 – Body Parts – “Beverley”
Nicola (model name Beverley) is another friend who has modelled for me on several occasions. She is a hobbyist model who states on her model page “Categorically no full nudity and it takes a lot of trust in the photographer for me to be comfortable with lingerie.” (Purpleport.com, 2017). So I was honoured and thrilled that she entrusted me with a shoot for my body part project. I was also thrilled when she posted one of the art nude poses we took during an impromptu shoot.

Some of the body shape images we produced are shown below in figure 2. Other images which show more nudity will be used in the project anonymously as I would like to protect Nicola’s identity in those images due to her model statement above.

Nicola advocates loving and owning your own body for all it’s flaws. As a child she was teased for her nose amongst other things. I think her nose is amazing and should be celebrated. It is part of what makes Nicola so special. I am truly grateful for the images she helped me to create. Nicola was able to produce some amazing shapes which make for really interesting images. Thanks Nicola 🙂 !
