I am a full-time art nude model based in Las Vegas, NV….and I am available for hire!
Unlike most Vegas gash, I have NO TATTOOS, no silicone and no nappy hair extensions. Also, my skin isn’t orange.
I am currently offering a deal where for $500, I will personally drive you in my busted-up old pickup truck to all the beautiful desert locations shown to the left, plus pose nude at each location, over the course of an 8-hour day.
I also know of many other amazing locations in the desert that are farther away — an abandoned brothel, an abandoned water park, ghost towns, sand dunes, a junk car forest, Death Valley, etc. These locations are mostly outside the scope of my 8-hour daily rate, but I’m always open to working out a deal. I am also available for half-day or 1-2 hour bookings…just ask! I’m flexible
If you’ve ever wanted to shoot a nude model in the desert, check it out! My entire modeling portfolio and rate info can be seen at modelmayhem.com/wonderhussy…and if interested in booking a shoot, you can contact me there, or at email@example.com.
*Note: my rate includes hair & makeup (I always do my own), wardrobe & props (I have a TON of costumes and accessories) and a wealth of local knowledge. Plus my sunny disposition (which counts for a lot…many models are bitches/divas/flakes/lazy whores who look nothing like their way-over-Photoshopped photos).
Anyway, here’s some info about shooting nude models around Vegas:
Shooting in a hotel room might sound boring, but it’s most convenient for both model and photographer. Because most Vegas hotels have excellent security, as a model I feel pretty safe shooting in a room, so I’m likely to be more comfortable and creative.
A few tips on hotel rooms. I’ve shot in most Vegas hotels, and my personal recommendations are:
- Cosmopolitan suite (if you can get one with a Strip-facing balcony, you can get awesome shots at night). The suites themselves are full of funky knick-knacks and artsy furnishings which come in useful as props, and there are a lot of cool patterns and textures on the walls. Aria has a similar vibe, only not quite as cool. Also Palms Place suites are futuristic and very cool. Vdara has some GREAT suites with excellent natural lighting, as well.
- Suites at Bellagio, MGM, Venetian and Mandalay are also nice, if not somewhat bland.
- If shooting at Mandalay Bay or THE Hotel, get a room with a view of the opposite tower. Because both towers are gold-plated, they act as giant reflectors and the rooms are suffused with warm, flattering light during golden hour.
- The Flamingo’s GO Suites are funky, retro and visually very interesting…for a reasonable price!
- Rooms at the Wynn and Encore have huge floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing for lots of natural light. You can’t see much of the Strip from down there, though.
- The Artisan is a fun, super-ultra-funky boutique hotel… but in my experience, the lobby and bar area are the only really cool places to shoot. The rooms themselves are kinda blah (it used to be a Travelodge, and you can totally tell…they basically slapped on black paint and added a few paintings). Not recommended.
- If a grungy vibe is what you’re after, there are plenty of busted-up crack motels in downtown Vegas. Allow me to steer you in the direction of the most photogenic ones
The other type of shooting I do is location…a/k/a out in the desert! This is much more fun, but also more time-consuming. Many visiting photographers seem to think there are ghost towns and abandoned motels right on the edge of town…but this is not the case! If you want to shoot somewhere really cool, you have to drive AT LEAST an hour outside the stucco sprawl of Vegas. I enjoy exploring the desert, so I don’t mind driving an hour or even two to get to a really cool spot. But most of the locations I use on a regular basis are within a one-hour drive of the Strip.
Here’s the skinny on location shooting around Vegas:
- There are no “ghost towns” closer than 2 hours from Vegas. You can shoot at Nelson (http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/nv/nelson.html), which is a fake ghost town stocked with rusty antiques and bric-a-brac about an hour from Vegas, but you’ll have to pay for the privilege and there are usually a lot of nosy tourists around, precluding any nude shots. I’m not even sure they allow nude shooting out there. Most of the other abandoned shacks and stuff I know of are all at least 2 hours out of Vegas, in the middle of NOWHERE…I know of several places and would be happy to share them with you if you hire me for a shoot
- The dry lake beds are all about 45min-1 hour outside Vegas. My personal favorite is Apex (to the north), but there is also one outside Boulder City to the east, and one to the south in Jean. Whichever one you choose, you can get really cool, dramatic photos…just be sure to go late in the day, when the light isn’t so harsh (there is NO shade out there, and lighting can be tricky). UPDATE: I just discovered an amazing new lakebed about 90 minutes from the Strip…but it’s pretty remote, and 4-wheel drive is advisable to reach it.
- For red rocks/red caves and that kinda stuff, DON’T go to Red Rock National Conservation Area, unless you want to drown in Chinese tourists and fanny-packers. Shooting nudes here is nigh on impossible (unless you hike waaaaay back into a canyon…and who wants to lug all that camera equipment that far?). Shooting at Valley of Fire State Park, while extremely beautiful and dramatic, is also not recommended — the ranger is a real hardass and I’ve been kicked out by him before. I have done a few shoots out there without incident, but these required hiking back into the brush pretty far…
- Instead, if you want to shoot in a red sandstone-type area, I know a secret place which I’m not going to name here. It’s pretty remote (about 1 hour from Vegas), and if you hire me for a shoot I’ll take you there
- There are beautiful sand dunes 2.5 hours to the south, in Kelso, and also 2 hours to the northwest, near Amargosa. Death Valley also has some amazing dunes about 2.5 hours from Vegas.
- If you want to shoot outdoors but stay in the city, options are limited. We don’t really have any cool parks, and the Strip is choked with drunken idiots and Looky-Lous 24/7, making shooting nearly impossible. There is an area of open desert in Sunset Park which is minimally scenic, but overall it’s worth the 30 minute drive to get outside of town into the desert if you want to shoot outside.
- As far as shooting on the Strip itself…I do have a few tricks for getting the lights of the Strip in the background of nude photos…hire me and I’ll tell you
- I am also willing to shoot guerilla-style nudes in public, as well But be advised, you can get into serious trouble doing this.
Overall, you can get AMAZING shots out here…you just have to know where to go. And you need the kind of model who will help you get there!
