When a photographer says "we're shooting nudes just bring yourself"...

...What do you ACTUALLY bring?

I tend to bring make up, one pair of shoes, 4/5 pairs of undies (also the stockings and suspender belt that live in my bag) 2 or 3 interesting outfits, and a small selection of accessories; I can fit all that in my trusty rucksack if I try, so it's not too much effort and I'd rather bring it and not use it than have the photographer get bored of nudes halfway through and have no other options.

What about you guys?

Oh I am so the same!
I tend to take some heels, makeup and about 3 pairs of undies (mainly so I can wear them home after the shoot!
Though I very rarely wear the make up, no one asks me too and the heels are just to give me more height and length to my legs.

Nobody has ever actually got bored of shooting me nude, so maybe your just not doing it right?

If we run out of things to shoot we look around us for inspiration be it a location or an interesting prop - this has actually been a good for experimenting and really pushing my imagination rather than give up and move on.

If I have been booked for a location nude all I take with me is makeup/hair products and some warm loose clothing - no undies, no high heels and no interesting outfits, it just means I have to carry all that crap around for the day. Having made the mistake once and being taken a 3 mile walk to the location and 3 miles back I wouldn't make the same mistake again unless someone specifically asks but if they just want me to bring myself that is what I take. When I started I was the same, trying to hard to please but all I was actually doing was tiring myself out carrying a load of crap the photographer isn't interested in shooting. I would rather tire myself out posing or doing something productive than holding onto things which 99% of the time are not needed and 100% of the time not asked for.

Bottle of water. Sandwich. Dressing gown. Hairbrush.Mini mirror.  Lipsalve. Diary and pen (optimistic).

However, I'm usually in the car, in which case evrything gets bundled in the boot!

If it's location nude I don't bring anything extra, but if it's studio time I bring matching underwear, one pair of heels, couple of dresses, ballet shoes, small selection of jewelry. This is a lesson I learned the hard way, "Sooo.... what underwear did you bring? Didn't you bring any? Oh nooo Didn't you even bring your ballet shoes?? oh noo" during a nude shoot. Poor planning/communication on the photographer's part, I feel a lot happier having stuff on me as a happy photographer is a happy shoot.

As a photographer who actually says this more often than not I suppose I do mean bring make up and hair modifiers. I don't mean bring clothes but would concede that some interesting accessories or jewellery could be of use and yes a pair of heels too. Mostly though I really do mean "no need for a suitcase".

Chrissie - location's a bit different, I bring almost nothing for location; although even then I tend to bring one or two interesting things, in particular skirts or dresses that stream prettily in the wind. I work in home and white-box studios much of the time so there aren't always too many interesting things to play with. (Although occasionally home studios have massive piles of fun stuff in them.) One rucksack isn't any trouble to bring anyways.

Also, I think you're a very mean lady, and you consistently scupper my attempts to not dislike you. I've always admired your modelling work and I think your figure is absolutely mind-blowing, but I've tried and failed to feel the same way about your character.

Sorry I just think you are extremely irritating and full of Chrissie_Red is a naughty person . You came on here already knowing it all or somehow acting like you are superior to everyone here - you are a young girl not an old woman with all the answers.
I don't subscribe to people blowing smoke up my arse either but thanks I guess.
