I'm going to be flying to the west coast visiting relatives, a national park, and a nudist resort. And I'm actually staying overnight at the resort -- not an offsite accommodation. Their web site says bring a towel and sun block, but not lots of clothing or a camera. If I have a camera stored in my luggage at the resort's lodge, battery and memory removed, should I tell them about it?

Of course there's no reason for locals to bring a camera there, but in my case, it's rather essential for the other places on the trip.

No need to tell anyone. The only time I am concerned about cameras is when it is brought out at the club.

I agree. As long as your camera is packed away, the resort shouldn't care. Cell phones are another matter, since most have cameras built in. Laguna Del Sol, for instance, forbids the use of cell phones inside the pool and sunning areas, to eliminate the possibility of someone sneaking photos.

Thanks everyone. Due to the length of the trip, I'm bring a lot of clothes too. The resort need not worry about my use of clothing there either :)

If you can remove the battery and memory stick, you can put it back in cant you.

please use a bit of common sense and just leave it in your bag FFS

Live love and have fun

Seems to me that cell phones are the new cameras and virtually everyone has a cell phone. My laptop computer also has a built in camera. Technology has taken over and made prohibition of cameras obsolete. They are everywhere. Time for us to get over it.

Which has been my point on other similar threads on this subject. It's not the cameras you see that should concern you ... it's the ones you don't see. Traditional cameras are too bulky and heavy for nudists to carry around. Cell phones now take better pictures than some cameras costing more than a cell phone.

I agree wholeheartedly ... it's really time for us to get over it and stop whining about cameras at nudist clubs and resorts. If you're that worried about having your picture taken at a nude venue ... don't go. It's probably already happened and happened many times without you knowing it.

We still take our camera on ALL our outings. We take pictures of our travels and we take pictures of each other clothed and nude. We are not interested in others in our pictures unless we know them. Having other nudes in the frame of a picture we've taken usually get deleted and the photo retaken. They only time I can remember having pictures with other nudes in the frame is at Collins Beach on Sauvie Island in OR. The nude bodies have their backs to us and the pictures were of us and our friends with the river and a large ship coming up river. In that context, it just gave a perspective of a day on a nude river beach.


To answer your question; NO, there's no need to tell the resort about your camera. If you use it and are caught doing something you shouldn't, then you'll suffer the consequences.

I think the resort should tell everyone upon entry that cameras are not prohibited but the rules are no taking of pictures of others without permission. And as a visitor that there is that possibility you could have your pic taken by someone not following the rules, whom if caught will be removed. That way everyone is responsible for their own fate. Not the resort.

In my opinion the rules about cameras are like the rules about hiding behind high fences. Its a form of body shame that generations of nudists have participated in and promoted. All that did was to push nudity out of public sight and anything which is never seen soon becomes "abnormal" and unseeable.

In my not so humble opinion, its time to make going naked acceptable in public. As a group we need to stop hiding. That which is seen even occasionally soon becomes normal and acceptable. We need to make naked an acceptable and "normal" choice on all beaches, venues, parks, trails, and city buses. We cannot do that by hiding behind fences and "no-camera" rules.

Yes, the nudist resorts have a vested interest in limiting nudity to their locations. But we nudists should not have to go hid behind a high fence to enjoy the sunshine. Its time for all of us to just get over it.

only time i took a camera to the nudist camp was the middle of the week when few or no one else was around, a fellow nudist that also visit during weekdays would sometimes bring a camera too so we would take turns being photographers for each other by the pool or on the trail. at the beach i would ask others to snap my picture and have returned favor to others, as for taking pictures of others i have snapped a few from a distance so you could make out a nude body but not who they were and was more to show a nude beach than anything else.

I agree with FireProf. We might need a new rule. Because of the ubiquity of phone/cameras, maybe management at resorts should inform patrons that if someone is concerned that they are being photographed without their permission, they have the right to challenge the photographer. Management then has the right to inspect the photos; if they are found to be in violation, they will be escourted off the premises with no refund of their fee. Not sure how smoothly this would work in a real life situation, but it's just common courtesy to not photograph people without their permission, even when they are clothed.

I leave my cell phone in my car, inside my pants pocket. I don't want to come even close to being accused of taking pictures, by bringing my cell phone with me in my backpack I use at a nude area of a resort.

Humorously, which I never am inclined to be, setting up a tripod and camera near a swimming pool is probably not a good idea, unless you want some major excitement you'll get by being thrown out of that nudist resort. Or, the cops could haul you away.

Seriously, forget the camera and just have fun. Perhaps in the winter, if the resort is not being used by anyone at all, maybe you could set something up with the management for photography. Not all nudist resorts have the best quality photos on their website.

If you're a great and artful photographer, management might work with you on having better photos of their resort being placed in the Internet.

I rise early almost every morning and sit in my chamber, without any clothes whatever, half an hour or an hour, according to the season, either reading or writing.

taking pictures at a nude beach or resort should be roughly the same as it would be at a textile beach or resort .

Get caught taking pictures of a stranger at a nude beach and you may be fishing your phone out of the ocean.

Our very close nudist friend, along with many others in our group, was having issues with his camera on Collins Beach during one of our visits a few years ago. His zoom stopped working and we were trying to get a group picture with us all at the water's edge but the camera wasn't working correctly.


He turned the camera toward the water and began playing with the zoom switch. A couple of women were walking across the camera frame and they stopped and flipped my friend off. He didn't even noticed because he was concentrating on the operation or non operation of his camera! The two women again flipped him off and that's when I walked down and approached them.


I told them that I understood their anger but that he was not taking pictures of them and they were more than welcome to come and look at his camera and the pictures. To my surprise, one of the women said, "yeah, I wanna see those pictures." As we walked up to our friend he continued to try and get his camera to work. I told him what had happened and the ladies' reaction and he was very apologetic, as was his wife!


He let them look through his photos and afterwards, they complimented him on his photog skills and asked him to take pictures of them with their camera! Later in the afternoon, these two women crossed our paths again and we invited them to share a beer with us and they accepted.


So out of this seemingly negative situation with a camera at the beach, it actually turned into a positive and two new friends were made on Collins Beach that day, all because of a misunderstanding with a camera!



Loves being naked. Plays well with others!
