When He Asked To Take A ‘Nude Portrait’ They Were Expecting Something Different.

Trevor Christensen likes to take photos naked. The professional photographer knows that despite his best efforts, some of his clients have a difficult time feeling comfortable with their photos being taken. He describes it as a “power imbalance.”

There is an element of vulnerability allowing someone to take your photo. Am I showing my best angle? Is my posture ok? But most importantly, will I look good? Christensen finds that by balancing that power to him being the one in an exposed circumstance, his subjects are more likely to be themselves.

Christensen began the photo series Nude Portraits. The images capture the models reaction to Christensen naked, “devoid of eroticism.”

The shutterbug points out that the sessions are like any other aside from him being without clothes on. They last approximately 40 minutes, taking place in a backyard, office or home.
