About the Author
A. K. Nicholas is an American photographer who has spent over twenty years recruiting and working with beautiful models. He comes from a family of artists and has traveled to more than three dozen countries in South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Orient, and India. His first nude photo shoot occurred as an art student, and quite unexpectedly. After asking a classmate if he could photograph her, she entered the studio and fully disrobed, assuming that he had meant a nude photo shoot. From the age of nineteen, thousands of Nicholas' photographs have sold through exhibits in commercial galleries, been licensed through stock photography agencies, appeared books, articles, advertisements, and other publications. Nicholas began teaching advanced photographic techniques while still in college, filling in for several weeks for an ill professor. He continued to teach photography after graduation. Nicholas has written books and articles, including how-to's for nude photography and pictorial books that explore and celebrate beauty. In his writings he draws upon an art degree, a Master’s in business and experience as both a professional photographer and a freelance artist. You'll learn from his twenty years of successes (and even some mistakes) with hundreds of nude models.

Bottom line, I now have the confidence to approach potential subjects (women) and ask them to pose without sounding like a dirty old man. Five stars.

The book felt slightly less informative and more like the writer was boasting. I felt it came across a bit sleezy and I found only moderately useful information out of it.
Truth be told, if you want someone to pose nude for you, really you just need to ask; Some will say yes and some won't.
I won't go into everything the other reviewers have covered - that gets boring.
What I liked about the author's style was its ease - he clearly explains everything, without extra jargon that might confuse a novice. He writes with a simple style that more than conveys his abilities and understanding with this type of photography - and it's not for everyone. It is well laid out in a step-by-step format, miss one chapter and you might be kicking yourself in the butt!
The photos included in this book are stunning and you can see the artistic ability in each and every one - it makes you want to be that good.
Up To My Eyeballs In Nude Women has finally given me the tools needed to expand my horizons and find the "perfect" woman needed for the cover of my next murder mystery novel.
Mr. Nicholas has complied what I believe to be a complete collection of tools an amateur photographer needs to launch his artistic career with models both the photographer and model will appreciate.
