Working with a non-binary photographer can be incredibly liberating and safe for individuals looking to capture intimate, boudoir-style photographs.
I’m non-binary. Being non-binary is a term used to describe individuals who do not identify as exclusively male or female. It is a spectrum of gender identities that can include people who identify as both, neither, or somewhere in between. Being non-binary is a valid and recognized identity and should be respected and honored.
First and foremost, a non-binary photographer brings a unique perspective and understanding of the complexities and nuances of gender identity. This allows for a comfortable and inclusive environment, where individuals can express themselves freely without fear of judgment or misunderstanding.
Additionally, a non-binary photographer is likely to have a body-positive approach to photography. I sure do. This means that I will focus on capturing the beauty and individuality of each person, rather than adhering to societal expectations or stereotypes about bodies. This can create a sense of empowerment and self-acceptance for you, the person being photographed.
Working with a non-binary photographer can also be a way to support marginalized communities and promote diversity and inclusivity in the photography industry.
While many male photographers are professional and respectful, there is always a risk of power imbalances and potential for unsafe situations when working with a male photographer for boudoir photography. Some individuals may feel uncomfortable or vulnerable when working with a male photographer, especially if they have had negative experiences with men in the past.
Overall, choosing a non-binary photographer for your photography session can provide a liberating and safe space for self-expression and body positivity. With my unique perspective and inclusive approach, I can help you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, resulting in stunning and meaningful photographs that you’ll treasure forever.
