Lingerie Photography Question?
Dec 9, 2011

I am a hobbyist photographer. I have done some "portraits" of people for pay, nothing serious/glamour etc. Today, I was photographing my kids casually with my D40 at McDonald's (I also have a D5000) when a young lady asked me if I would be interested in photographing her. When I asked her of what, she said of her in lingerie.

I did take her information down, and she has mine, but I don't think I can do this. Besides the fact that I am married, and I have never done anything of this sort (the most "revealing" shot I ever took was of a 19-year old in a tanktop as part of senior graduation pictures, and her own FATHER was there--and my wife knew about it), but there's also my worry--what if the woman turns out to be with an escort service or something like that? (She didn't say she was, and wasn't flirty with me in anyway, and was asking what I would charge.) What if she has a jealous boyfriend or something like that? (To say nothing of the fact that I'm married & I seriously doubt my wife would approve.) Although I just do this as a hobby, wouldn't taking photos of something like possibly brand me as being an "erotic" photographer, which I am most definitely not, and make me appear "sleazy" as it were?

Thougths?
