How to be an amazing photographer when you’re naked: How to have fun with your clothes

When I was in college, I went to a private school, and I was a skinny guy, 6 feet tall, 170 pounds.

I was skinny.

I had a lot of confidence.

I wanted to look cool.

But I was also nervous.

I remember I was terrified, because I felt like I didn’t belong.

I felt as though my whole identity as a man was at stake.

So I decided to try to get my body out of the closet.

When I did, I made friends.

They gave me their phones, their emails, their phone numbers.

And when I used those to talk to them about my work, I felt very liberated.

I started making art and being myself, and my confidence skyrocketed.

So this is a story about how I learned to embrace my body and my body’s value, and how it made me feel more confident and more in control.

This is a man’s story about being a man, about being naked.
