The Muse: Shelby Carter

The Muse: Shelby Carter

Following the theme of some nude photography from my last post including some naked yoga, I’ve got some more here, in a slightly different light.

Allen Henson is another photographer who has been in the news recently.  He’s being sued by the Empire State Building (or rather the people in it) after he took some really beautiful nude photos of model Shelby Carter from the top.

It was raining and moody and I absolutely love them!

After some more investigating, I found that Carter and Henson have done some work before.  Some just as contentious as the empire state affair.  Henson photographed Carter walking through a restaurant, slowly taking off her clothes.

See the video here:


I loved Henson’s style in his photography and video.  This is my favourite of The Muse.


This made me think of ‘The Muse’, and how different models make the photographer fall in love with them.  Whether it’s their look, hair, laugh or curve.  I don’t think it lasts forever, but I reckon the photographers get all they can from their muse while the inspiration is there.

I’m taking applications for mine…


  1. It lasts forever.

  2. I love the images and even the settings for the models, the problem is the other people in the photos did not sign up to be a part of this. It not sexy or erotic, the photo shoot is not even about the model, just simply arrogance and the video from the one shoot shows that, asked to turn off the camera it stays on to record all of it. Its not photography its photobombing hoping to capture reactions of others.
    Just one persons humble opinion. 🙂
