Choose Abigail Ekue Photography for a private portrait, art or nude photo shoot or to cover your next event. When contacting me to book a private photo shoot, include in your email which shoot you want to book and (especially for nude/erotic shoots), your location and whether or not you can host the shoot.
What to Expect
Professionalism, Safety and Respect:
A private photo session is a safe place for both you the client and myself, the photographer. I am experienced in working with people who are uncomfortable with "a camera in their face" and those who have never done a nude photo shoot. How you choose to pose is up to you. I require a photo (face only/clothed) of anyone I will work with beforehand. There is no physical contact between myself and clients during nude and erotic photo shoots. I do not "fluff" nor do I hire anyone to do so.
Creativity and Play:
Be prepared to have fun! I do make suggestions for editorial and conceptual images and give verbal cues to increase the variety of poses and moods but you're encouraged to be involved in the creative process. Feel free to share your ideas or bring props you'd like to use during your shoot. These images are for your portfolios, business websites, branding, album covers, dating profiles, anniversary presents or for personal growth so the aim is to capture all aspects of who you are. Being open to trying interesting poses and experimenting will result in remarkable photos. I never get tired of hearing, "Wow, that's me?" when a client receives their photos!
*Images from private nude and erotic sessions with male clients are not used or published with the Bare Men series.
