On Nude Beaches
Like everybody else, we enjoy looking
at photographs. As long as the subjects
are adults (20 years old and up),
we quite like non-sexual images of
those enjoying the clothing-optional
lifestyle. We live in a particularly
cold climate so the opportunity to
go nude outdoors happens only a few
days out of the year if our vacation
budget is low. For that reason looking
at photos of naturist vacations makes

1. Some people (clothed or otherwise) simply
do not like having their picture taken..
My mother once defined rude behaviour as
that which makes another uncomfortable.
Thus taking someone's photo when you know
they would rather not have it taken is rude.
Politeness - good. Rudeness - bad.
2. If you're at a naturist club as opposed
to a public beach, it's likely that no cameras
are allowed. If you're not sure, ask.
3.We shouldn't even need to say this, but
a naturist taking a photo of friends and
family with a pocket disposable is one thing,
some fully-clothed clown snapping away with
a camera avec mega-zoom lens is another.
That said, even if you are nude and simply
taking pics of your pals, expensive-looking
camera gear can make people nervous. Be
sensitive to those around you and put your
camera away if you're detracting from somebody
else's enjoyment of the day.
3. If you do not have a digital camera,
the photos have to be processed somewhere.
Many would-be nudist / naturist photographers
are frightened that the photo-lab may object
and create trouble of some kind. A list
of Discreet processors can be found at http://directory.google.com/Top/Adult/Shopping/Photographs/Film_Processing/
(Not an endorsement, but we'd love to hear
if you've had good, bad or indifferent experiences
developing your naturist photos.)

nudist / naturist photograhy can be found

comentary on nudist naturist photography

Putting photos up on these pages is problematic
because we get THOUSANDS of people visiting
every week, and every time someone clicks
on a picture it costs us money. We have
a couple of ads up to defray costs, but
we still have to limit our photo galleries
to fellow naturists who send us pics and
trip reports from their vacations. Simply
put. We show you photos from our collections
if you show us yours.
