    btw: stone to be shooting your subject professionally you need to be selling your work ...
    shooting and having a collection of genitalia photographs doesn't mean you are a professional ..
    did you see 8mm? there is a market for this sort of stuff ... or so it seems ...
    Well I've told the models that the images I take will be in book form and only sold as individual pieces alongside the published book, which is not complete.

    I do sell other nude images and belong to a site where nude models sell their striptease sets (topless only) where we share the (small) profit of the images shot.



    As for my other comment, well, I'm just honest about my perspective, I didn't say that all attractive women appreciated the attention I said they were used to it so they wouldn't react as strongly as someone who wasn't used to it.

    Anyway it was a generalization based on my own experience. And my experience has been that the only people who don't like me taking their picture when I'm out on the street are unattractive or heavier people. It's just being honest with my experiences, sorry that's juvenile, but it's a pattern I recognized. Perhaps being honest isn't something everyone is ready for

    Actually, What Stone has said in this quote is some rather hard truth. That is, in 2013, it is a pretty safe presumption that any particular woman is most likely to be overweight, as most are. And the pretty ones are so rare that they tend to be hardened of heart from the amount of attention they receive. And let photography itself from past eras lend testimony that people in general have become slovenly in attire and appearance in latter years. As for me, I never cared for photographing nudity, never sought the opportunity to do it, and wouldn't if I could. The only bone I might pick with Stone would be the photography of tattoos. A girl with a tattoo is the best cure for a Viagra overdose that I can think of.
    I guess my point here is a repetition of an earlier post of mine in this thread. My kingdom for a time machine.

    I think he keeps things fresh, man. Say I the senior about the junior member. He just needs to be schooled a bit.


    Sorry. When I'm tired I get pun-chy. It's groan bad.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Thanks Tom,

    I appreciate that someone can hear what I said and not be offended and partially agree. Thanks Tom.

    And yes most of the girls I photograph naked have tattoo's somewhere, it's often just that those are the more adventurous girls and the ones most interested in being nude. I don't personally like tattoo's on a mate, but I appreciate the art on a model and do my best to use it as part of their personal embellishments.

    I know my mother often comments that she hates the tattoos of the women I photograph more than the knowledge that they may be nude. Generational perspective I suppose.

    Perhaps perversely, I think Stone performs an admirable service for all APUG members. That if you can handle his outspoken approach, you will find yourself unexpectedly steeled and sharpened for that next eventual dreaded live customer service telephone call to ANY of the New York photographic retailers.

    Maybe Adorama/B&H quietly pays his yearly APUG subscription??

    Yes, Stone stirs up us old pharts a bit. Which is a good thing, IMO.

    I'm really glad for the young blood here. Otherwise, in another decade or so, Sean would have to set up a prostate forum just to get us to keep the other forums on topic!
