Nude/Glamour location in Newcastle / Port Stephens area

Postby NightShift77 on Thu Nov 26, 2009 1:09 am

Hi everyone,

I have been asked to take some glamour / boudoir photography for a lady to give to her new husband as a Christmas present but she wants them in a nature or outdoor setting she has suggested a beach scene or bushland setting.

Does anyone have any suggestions for any locations around the Port Stephens / Newcastle area that would be suitable for and artistic semi-nude photography shoot, ideally a more secluded location that's not going to be packed with people and she can feel comfortable people aren't watching her.

I haven't done artistic nudes outdoors before so is there anything I need to be aware off. I have done some other work with her previously for pregnacy and mum & bub type photos, even though we have worked together previously, should I still suggest she bring a chaperon seeing as we won't be at a fixed address.

Also, does anyone know the laws about semi/nude outdoor photography in NSW.


(Sorry I know this is a cross post but the lack of responses I thought I might have posted in the wrong area originally)

You will probably need a permit to do such a thing and also provide liability insurance certificate to the council since they might deem it as a professional/commercial shoot. Or just try your luck and keep shooting till you get booted out :)

I would suggest to research ahead by scouting locations and see what, if any, the amount of people passing through at the time you are planning to shoot

Some of the photographers in this Flickr group may be able to help:

Some of the beaches that have been known to have some nude "sections" are Burwood and Dudley beaches.

Have you considered the dunes at Anna Bay? I'm sure you could negotiate some transportation down the beach with one of the local purveyors (unless you have a 4WD). If weather is good, that offers sun, sand, surf, dunes, grassy areas, and can be quite secluded.

Good luck!
