    A friend of mine has asked for "animalistic" type photographs taken of himself. He wants to be in the nudy though :confused:

    Im trying to look into the legallity of it. Obviously we wont be in a public park, but we will be in woodland which im sure the occasional rambler/dog walker would use.


    Any advice would be appriciated.
    Take in mind im in the UK.

    I'd do it personally...
    Just find a spot far enough from the normal path that you don't think anyone would go close.

    Or...time it. DO a few shots really fast...then get dressed...make sure you are watching for people...

    If you go to a regular trail or something...then ya...bad idea..

    but if you know a forest or park or something and there's not heavy traffic, or it's too cold for people to be out anyways...you'll be fine.

    I've seen people take naked pictures in the middle of the city before...at old gas stations or in front of truckstops...
    You just time it....and keep your eyes peeled!

    I think in the UK things are still very relaxed compared to other parts of this planet ;)

    get some people to assist you and warn you if the wrong people approach ;)

    In the UK most people would find it funny, even the police, that is as long as you weren't making it obvious you were naked to an old lady.

    Bring a lookout, and don't use equipment that you can't pick up and run away with quickly.

    I haven't done it on any street corners or anything, but have done it in public places. Never been caught/interrupted, though.

    Yeah, but then the "model" has to worry about "shrinkage". Thats never a good thing to have happen at a nudy shoot. :lmao: :lmao:

    Descretion and common sense should prevail leaving little doubt of the opportune moments to shoot. From my little stint in the UK you shouldn't have any worries. Have a business card ready to whip out in case of emergency. Not his, yours.

    Why don't girls understand the "shrinkage" factor. It's a fact.

    I think anywhere but the US has a much more relaxed attitude about such things.

    As a student, I worked at a beach near a large urban city but down a quiet road and over a bridge. After a storm or before bad weather in the summer when the beach was deserted by the usual types was when movie companies and photographers came out of "nowhere" with their models to shoot private activities in "public".

    I will always remember doubling up with laughter when the police suddenly raided the beach and everyone was running in every direction. :) It was like something out of the Keystone Cops.

    Look outs, If you are deep enough into the trees you should be fine but have some lookouts to be on the safe side. Definately go for it if you want to.

    *EDIT*
    maybe I should have read all the responces first....it's all been said alredy :lol:
