Create sensual & artistic images

Crafting light for sensual results

Body scapes are a wonderful creative challenge for art nude photographers. All you have to work with is the human form and your ability to pose the subject and your talent in lighting and framing the image.

In this Masterclass program Matt shoots with 4 diverse models, using different light sources in a variety of locations. You will learn how to shoot abstract, sensual, creative and explicit nudes, ranging from extreme close ups, to ultra wide angle nudes in public!

The images are sensual, sophisticated and artistic. The video and stills includes full nudity and is intended for a mature audience.

The posing, composition and lighting lessons you learn in this course can be applied to any location and any style of portraiture.

You will learn how to...

  • Direct the model

    Small adjustments and variations have a big result on the final image.

    It takes skill and confidence to give clear & comfortable direction to your model that yields the exact image you are looking to create.

  • Control the light

    Creating sensual body scapes requires an understanding of how to manipulate and control light and shadow.

    Matt will show you how to carefully position light and shadow to 'reveal & conceal' in your image to vary the shot from abstract or implied, to erotic.

  • Edit Creatively

    The final step to creating a beautiful photograph is editing. In this series Matt edits images from each shoot in real time, showing you the complete process to finalise the image.

    You get access to sample files as well editing presets to use in your own workflow.

Go beyond the ordinary 🤩

Create Art Nude Body Scapes with impact

With attention to detail in terms of your settings, angles, posing and position of light and shadow - you can quickly start making nice Body Scapes reasonably quickly. 

But let's aim for more than "nice". Let's create something really special.

Each segment of this course introduces key concepts and shows you how to take it to the next level. You will learn how to:

- Create striking contrast, and use shadows to reveal and conceal to adjust how explicit the final images are

- Use oil, water and other props to add movement and visual interest to your images

- Use simple household objects to create interesting shadow patterns that add depth to your images

- Create dramatic images that highlight muscle definition and curvature

- Create vastly different images by modifying the available light in a typical home

- Communicate a concept with your model, and easily direct them to execute interesting poses

Creative Nude Portraiture

Abstract, Sensual & Erotic

This course is all about creative nude body scape portraiture - crafting compelling images using little more than your camera, your model and your control of the light. 

Matt teaches you the fundamentals to create simple clean body scapes, but takes it much further to create more complex and detailed body scape images.

We shoot:

- In a hotel using oil, water drops and colored bath water

- Using a range of focal lengths from 200mm telephoto to 100mm double macro lenses, to a 14mm ultra wide angle

- With a muscular man, creating deep valleys of light and shadow

- Outdoors in nature, placing the human form among the natural environment.

- Using a minimal kit - mostly a single camera and  lens making use of the available light; sometimes adding flash or continuous light

- From abstract and implied (social media friendly) images to erotic and explicit images.

The package includes raw image files, a brand new set of editing presets and a PDF list of all equipment and outfits used.

Student Reviews

What photographers said about Matt's previous courses

What makes Matt stand apart from others is the clear way in which he communicates the essence of the poses, the process, the equipment to use, and the art of the resulting photographs.

Max, San Francisco.

The Hotel Photoshoot was awesome!  The “fly on the wall” format was very educational to see how you interacted with the model.  I also appreciated how interactive you are with the model-she had some great input on the creative aspects of the shoot.  This is a great course for photographers, as well as  models who want to improve their posing.

Jon, Toronto.

This is a very well set out course. I like the rapport between you and the model as it shows how a shoot can be relaxed and professional. The different options shown with regard to focal length and aperture was also very helpful. Good job.

Saalik, Western Australia

Matt is an excellent teacher, starting the lessons from the basics and building to advanced. 

Cliff, Philadelphia.

Your video series was amazing and really help me understand how to respect and make the model feel comfortable. I now also feel more confident with lighting. 

Johnie - New York

Matt provides unconditional access to the studio and the models whilst stepping us through his successful methods and processes to getting the best results in camera. Truly tip top and educational photographic fun!
