In photography, as in other art expressions, I guess some "artists" do have doubts and some don't. I think confidence comes with experience. At first you compare yourself with everyone you admire, but that struggle makes you work harder to achieve that  uniqueness that you, as artist, are always looking for. 

Shooting nudity is about connecting. I tend to connect with the model; that makes half the work while looking for the theme. Having a "name" in nude photography makes it a little easier to work new nude projects, with new models. At the beginning, winning the trust of the models was the challenge, but when your portfolio grows, it does the work.

Every model is different. I try to get on the same page with them, talking about music, art, sports, places, that creates a bond, that makes them feel like they are not with a "shooter" but also with a person who sees more than nude bodies. Starting out is a mix of luck and quality. I said to myself, your first opportunity may be your only chance to show your vision, be prepared to make it worth it.

I'd like to call it adaptation. Every work is a new challenge, but the new era of fashion photography has made us (everyone involve in fashion photography) more creative everyday. For me, it was really interesting trying to do something "new" with jeans/denim as everything has been done, but I think the result was pretty nice and we all loved the final images.

You are right, the need to keep your work fresh is to keep hungry, looking for new ways to portrait your vision. Nude is no different, at least for me. I try to include new "elements", be that new light schemes, new locations, new accessories, new models… without forgetting the elegance and class I always try to include.

One of the most challenging aspects of my work, but one that I'm grateful for is: Changing the view of nude art photography because not all nude photography is the same.

Hopefully the future brings new perceptions for nude photographers, not being censored, not being seen as something wrong by social networks.

The end of civilzation will be caused by: A new beginning. This is cyclical.
