This Photographer Shoots Nude Portraits, Only This Time He Is The One Naked

Published 2 years ago

Trevor Christensen is a portrait photographer based in Los Angeles who recently launched his latest portrait series titled Nude Portraits. And if you think the series is going to feature many naked people, we’ve got news for you – there will only one. And he won’t be in front of the camera.

In his latest series, the photographer decided to take peoples’ portraits while being naked: “My thinking was that I’m a person who is comfortable taking photos, helping a subject feel comfortable having their photo be taken. What if I became a photographer who was uncomfortable taking photos, who was photographing a subject who was similarly uncomfortable?” said Trevor in an interview with Bored Panda.

For the photographer, The Nude Portrait series was a new and frightening experience at first: “Even with people I knew, it was stressful and strange to carry on a conversation and direct a portrait shoot while I was nude. I did about 50 shoots for the series and never really enjoyed them,” said Trevor. Although he got used to the process with time: “I also noticed subjects didn’t seem to react as strongly to my nudity either. What I realized is that when you’re taking a persons photo, they’re looking to you to know how to feel. So as you become more confident and collected, they’ll be the same way. They’re feeding off your energy.”

Many people loved the project and said it opens up the topics of how people perceive nudity and vulnerability. Check out the unique series in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
