Outdoor Fine Art Nude Portraits

Nude portrait at the pond

In addition to shooting boudoir and some commercial work, I’ve been working on and off over the years creating a series of outdoor fine art nude portraits. I shoot these for my own creative outlet to keep things fresh and interesting. The locations are outdoors in the natural environment, be it the forest, beach, or a grassy field.

My approach to this work is to keep planning to a minimum and just let the creativity happen during the shoot. Just myself and the subject, nothing complicated. Shooting early in the morning, I wander around looking for great light and an interesting composition. From there I find a quiet, introspective pose that sets the tone of the image. A beautiful woman in a beautiful setting. Perfect.

This particular image was taken about three years ago with a model friend of mine at a location about 20 miles north of Boston. I’m currently working on a website for this work but until then, follow me on Instagram at @erikpattonphoto if you want to see more.


Model Call!

Models needed!

Hi Everyone!

We’re looking for a couple of ladies that would be interested in modeling for us to help us with some promotional imagery. If selected, you’ll receive a complimentary two hour shoot, two hair and makeup looks with Kerri, unlimited outfit changes, and a $100 credit towards the purchase of prints or book. Altogether that’s worth $349!

The best part is that the deadline for submissions is Feb 1. And that’s early enough that you could do a shoot just in time for Valentine’s Day!

If interested, please send a note to describing why you’d like to be selected as well as a photo of yourself.

Valentine’s Mini Shoots!

The image pretty much says it all, but there are just a few slots left so if you’re interested, don’t wait! It’s about half off a regular shoot so it’s a pretty sweet deal.:)
