concerning photography in nudism
It is digital photography that has caused a good deal of anxiety within the naturist community because of its connectivity with the Internet. Those in the photograph, even the photographer themselves, can easily loose control of the image and there is a fear about where the photo might end up. As a result, many clubs and resorts have banned photography to help their patrons relax.
So who could you trust if you’re a proud parent and want pictures of your children in a naturist environment? Another naturist, perhaps! This is what Florida resident Brian Martens says he did and last November there was news that he might loose custody of his three daughters and could face jail time as a result. The man Martens commissioned – a professional photographer – is now serving a long sentence for producing and possessing child pornography and as the pictures he took of Martens’ daughters were found and identified on his computer, so Martens has been drawn into the web. Martens’ lawyer says it is a matter of interpretation; the prosecution case is that it is not.
