although i have been doing wedding and portrait sitting for a few years (especially while at university) i feel like alot of people turn away from booking me because of the model shoots i have on my website ( especially the nude and glamour type shots - my question to you lovely purestormers should i take them down and host them elsewhere and just use my website for my business images such as wedding and partys and family pics etc
pissing purestorm off since 2009

I personally wouldn't have anything except your main focus on your business website. Not only does it dilute the message, it could show a lack of commitment to one area.
Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

Just keep nudity/glamour separate and under a nom-de-plume. Saves a lot grief, oh if you put them up put them up behind a 18+ lockdown as that will stop many bots harvesting them for websites.

I found with the studio that I keep them separate. I have one website for the families, weddings etc and another for the glamour etc. I also use a different alias for each.
I did this as a lot of mums and couples looking to book did not like anything of an adult nature.

Host them both completely separately.

I originally had a single website on which I had a separate section (with nudity warning and specific acceptance to access) of glamour/nude images, and eventually found that I was losing customers simply because those looking for family shoots/weddings were not happy that I also had images containing nudity, even though of course they didn't have to look at them, and had to make definite decisions in order to view them.

No question - host completely separately

As advised keep you wedding/portrait work completely separate from any glamour. If you use the same name a search on google will show up the link.
Have a different bank account for each.

What do you think ? Is it art?, Is it commercial/catalogue? or is it glamour?
Most people would see it as glamour/lad's mags

Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...
