Outtakes: Nude Shoots Done During Tame Ad Campaigns

Even though a photographer is casting for a modeling job where the model is clothed, he will choose a male who will shoot nudes for outtakes that will not be used in the campaign. This is why you might see a coffee table book that includes a nude photo that seems very similar to an ad you saw in a magazine. The nude version of the photo was created at the same time the non-nude ad was created. The photographer submitted the clothed version to the ad agency and used the outtake version for his book.

Below is an example of photos as they were printed and a nude out-take (lowest photo)

  • Shoot Prep

    After working with thousands of new models and college students, we know the concerns, issues and questions many new models have before their first photo shoot. It is normal for even the most macho guy to be nervous prior to his first shoot. We compiled all this training info into “ShootPrep” – our dedicated site for training models with whom we work.

    Our photographer uses to train new models before their photo sessions.
