Olivia Culpo about her nude photoshoot
“I have never done a nude shoot before. I had been asked, but honestly I did not feel comfortable because I was fearful of how it would be perceived. Once I realized this was an opportunity to express myself in a way I hadn’t before, in such an organic and candid sense, the experience became more about art and emotion than me as a physical being.
That completely changed my outlook. So many people today strive for perfection, covering up who they really are in any way they can. I have been guilty of this too, but for this shoot I couldn’t hide. This was as real and raw as it gets.”
The ability to completely let your guard down, and leave judgment and insecurity at the door. Take on the character that the photographer is looking for, and lose yourself in the process, but at the same time keep enough of yourself that shines through. This thought process to me will always let the viewer know that it’s your true self in the photos, your essence.”
