Hey Dan, as an aspiring photographer myself, I’ve always wondered how one approaches someone as a potential subject for a nude photoshoot. What does that conversation sound like? And what’s your advice for photographer who wants to do just that?

To be honest, I rarely approach people to ask them to pose – for one, I haven’t really had the need: nine times out of ten, my reputation and the quality of my work brings people to me; second, I’m always concerned that it’ll be interpreted as a bad pick-up line. If I do approach someone, I’m honest… I tell them that they grabbed my attention, that I’m a photographer and hand them a card directing them to ThePhotosmith.com and ask them to take a look and, if they’re interested in collaborating, reach-out to me.
