Getting Naked in Nature

Getting Naked in Nature

The new movement to take the world by their bare bums? Getting naked, usually in picturesque locations, and showing some cheek for the camera. Now that’s a movement I can get behind!

This small project that I started before I had even realised it was a project I’d continue, manifested itself during our outdoor adventures. My partner, Lisa and I, would find ourselves standing amongst some epic scenery completely alone and we thought - what a perfect opportunity to have a bit of fun doing something “forbidden” and at the same time getting comfortable with our bodies to a new level.

Since starting the project in 2015, I have not only managed to convince others to participate and be glad they did, but we have found a group of people who are part of a greater movement here in Australia called Get Naked Australia or GNA. It’s an incredible organisation filled with friendly and inspiring people, and although we don’t get to participate in as many hikes or Skinny Dips for charity as we would like, it’s refreshing to know that the world is slowly changing, and for the better.
