If you’ve looked on Tony’s Instagram profile and checked out the getting hired page and followed some of the links, you will know that amongst other things, he shoots a lot of sensual photography. The reason for this is because sensual photography is some of the most downloaded of his images.
Absolutely not. Sensual photography is generally 1 of 3 or 4 sets per shoot. Unless you’ve been booked for a specific theme or the shoot is on location.
Absolutely you can. BUT keep in mind that models thrive best when they are versatile. E.g. can model in a suit, underwear, swimwear, sportswear, office, etcetera. If you only ever want to shoot wholesome family or office-wear then you are going to be limiting your offers because most photographers (such as Tony) will opt for a model who can shoot anything and everything. That is why it isn’t always just about a nice face, hair, beard, but it is also about a defined body. A defined body tells bookers, “I can model your underwear, swimwear, sportswear, loungewear as well as everything else.
Tony will ALWAYS DISCUSS A THEME FOR A SHOOT WITH YOU IN ADVANCE (and often send mood images). At that stage, you can choose to accept or reject it.
But please remember that you cannot choose which parts of a booking to accept. E.g. if the booking is for shots of model in a suit and some sensual photos… you cannot choose suits only. Tony (and most bookers) will book a model who will do it all. It just makes commercial sense.
Absolutely. EVERY shoot theme is discussed with you in advance before it is booked. At that point, you can choose to accept or reject it. If you reject the assignment, it will simply be passed onto somebody else who is happy to shoot it. Imagine it a bit like an actor’s part in a movie. Generally, all test shoots will include a sensual set although this is normally restricted to underwear only shots.
What is IMPLIED NUDE?
IMPLIED nude is where you are naked in the studio, but the image is framed in such a way where your penis cannot be seen. E.g., it is hidden behind an object, covered by a sheet or other item. With implied nude YOUR PENIS IS NEVER SHOWN. But the audience know you are naked. They just cannot see even though they want to.
TONY MARTURANO does shoot this type of photography.
