I can just imagine how awkward it would be trying to direct such a shoot.

not awkward at all, trust me. its like any other gig, just do it, if you dont like it, dont do it again. its not like you have to post the photos on your blog or your website and the client is not going to specify who takes them anyway

I never met the guy, but I ended up with most of the studio equipment from a photographer who shot strippers on a regular basis. When you think of it, every city has several strip club/bars and there are plenty of dancers/strippers. They all need promotional material and someone is getting paid to shoot it.

There was a question within the topic!?

Like Nikie says "just do it"

Teressa got so upset when we went over to a ladies house to do a shoot with a lady and two of her friends. They wanted some "questionable" photos and I obliged of course. I couldn't believe the reaction when nude wiminz were walking around us, me posing 'em, and my Elinchroms smiling......

As long as it's nothing illegal like kiddie porn or something, just go ahead and do it. And if it is illegal, inform the cops.

The good thing about being in business for yourself, is that you have the power to say yes or no to any job you are offered. If you're not comfortable with it, just say 'no thanks' and forget about it. If you are comfortable with it, then give it a try.

I have a friend who works for, I think, Suicide Girls.

If you're really interested in this kind of work, I could tack him down and have him contact you? PM me if you're interested.

There's probably a pretty decent niche if you want to be "the guy that takes naked pictures and does not assume/hope that we're going to end up having sex" here. That will rule out the skeezier class of "model" which might or might not be a good thing.

It really depends on the gig, though. Girls that want to make money by taking their clothes off are not, as a group, a very awesome bunch of people. Some of them are lovely and intelligent, to be sure, but there's a lot more wildly unreliably semi-junkies chain smoking cigarettes and wondering if you have and weed to share. If it's someone who wants to smokin' hot pictures for herself or to share with someone, but is not looking to be a nude model, then it might be kind of fun.

Insist on chaperones, for everyone's comfort and safety.

A friend of mine used to have a great article on how to direct, which he seems to have pulled. The essence, as I recall, was to *talk*. Be detailed, be thorough, and above all don't surprise anyone. "I am going to lift this sheet up and redrape it across your hips a little lower down now, is that ok?" on and on.

that's exactly how we deal with patients in the field...minus the re-draping the sheets across their hips a little lower part... but I always try to explain what im doing to my patients. makes things a little easier on them, which makes things a little easier on me. Its really one of the most useful skill you can have...especially when delivering a baby to a young mother. I would imagine that skill translates well into photography when you have to deal with people. weddings, portraits, etc etc.
