Am I missing the point...?

Am I missing the point...?

I have looked at several of the new Models to arrive here, and many of them have photos that they put in a section they refer to as either 'Glamour Nude' or 'Fine art nude'. Now, Maybe, and this is where I think I am missing the point here, I should expect them to be photographed 'in the nude'??

One 'fine art nude' has the model fully dressed on a rock, and another has a 'glamour nude' in a cardigan and knickers... Glamour, I am sure it can be classed as, but Glamour nude??

Like I say, maybe *I* am missing the point...

Without seeing the portfolios I cannot comment but:

Maybe they are happy to shoot art nude or glamour nude but don't have any images yet so posted some clothed ones so you can get the gist

Or maybe they don't understand.

New models sometimes tick adult [without nude or topless] because they think it is portraying adults.

Personally, I think new models are often still fairly inexperienced on how the world operates and you need to cut them some slack

You yourself have a nude in casual, a casual in fashion and a glamour in sport!...so maybe it's each to their own as to how they catagorize their own images

Fair point - but I never could figure the boundrys of casual and fashion... and the nude in casual 'might' be wearing shorts...

Probably they couldn't be bothered to get it right so hence what you saw

There isn't a right and wrong. Many people have stuff listed as 'Fine Art Nude' which isn't by any normal interpretation 'Fine Art' or 'Nude'. It is interesting that often a model puts photos which are 'arty' and some degree of being undressed in this category, whilst photographers often seem to put photos which have no clothes but have no obvious sign of art into this category. But.. normally if people class clothed pictures as 'Nude' of any type then one should be wary of what they are expecting if you book them for nude work. Most people put casual shots in fashion. It's more interesting if (as a paying member) you create your own categories.

Just a personel opinion , but I think there are far to many catogories. I have over twenty years experience and I am often baffeld as to which catogory to choose.

It just doesn't matter - it's your profile - your choice. But, as I said above, it can give some insight into someones attitudes to nudity and what is art, what is fashion ... or even show an anarchic or humorous attitude.
