About the Book
My name is Andy Baptiste and I am an LA based photographer. I've been photographing for about nine years now and each year always brings something new and exciting to the table. What I enjoy most about photography is getting the chance to continuously work with new people, be as weird and creative as we possibly can, and end up with photos that really capture a piece of that person that they may or may not always show. I've been following Nude Magazine for a little while now and I love to see creatives, such as myself, get together and make a platform that gives other artists a place to showcase their work, learn, and connect with other artists. I feel like I would be a great fit for the cover story because I feel like my work fits Nude Magazine’s aesthetic and I feel like I share the same values as far as connecting creatives, staying creative and inspiring creativity, and just pushing for something I really love and enjoying spending my time doing.
Thank you again to everyone who submitted – we plan to do this again soon. In the meantime, keep supporting your fellow creatives in everything they do. #nude
Let's talk about the humble beginning. The regular person who bit and tore and fought to get where they are— and never lost sight of the end goal. This issue is about those people. Individuals who decided to take their art and make a living off of it. NUDE Magazine grew from one simple notion— there's more than meets the eye. I want to see all of it, and I want to show it to you. So be inspired and never give up. After all, who doesn't love reading NUDE?
