"This shoot has taken me on a journey of new found self love. As a dancer I am forced to look and judge my body and am always trying to achieve something more desired. This project helped and allowed me to be exposed to my fullest but within the comfort of my own framing. It was surprising to me how quickly I said "fuck it" just take every photo from every angle, someone will love it even if you don't. What was the best was that towards the end I did loved every photo and every angle of myself! Thank you ISM! 'She didn't need to be saved. She needed to be found and appreciated for exactly what she was". J. IRON WORD'"

"During the process of taking the pictures I realised that being naked is not something to be frowned upon as it really boosted my confidence, it was such an exhilarating experience. The female body is beautiful no matter what shape or size or colour. I chose the car for my shoot because of the colour. I also used some red underwear. To me red is a symbol of sexuality and love and I wanted to express that through the photos. I think red represents confidence for me. I love nature and being outside, I would prefer to be outside than indoors. Even if its cold! I wanted to express my passion for nature through some shots. It was so relaxing and I felt really free, despite any strange looks people gave me. I have allergies and hay fever - rolling around in the grass gave me a rash but I was having so much fun I didn't care. I also chose to shoot some close ups of my legs and arms. My legs are my least favourite part of me but it was important to embrace them and realise I should love them and myself, I can't be anyone else."

"So with this project I felt like it was something I needed to do for myself. I am a person who has taken so many knock-backs not to do with me as a person but what I looked like, where I was from or my sexual orientation. The first obstacle that I needed to get over was that I lived with family and at home I am not able to freely express who I am in my entirety. So because I had that little problem I was able to contact a friend who is a cross-dresser and was okay with my nakedness as much as I was with myself. Because of that I was able to gain a sense of an even higher confidence and empowerment than I usually had. Imagine that you are already a unicorn but another unicorn was like "You know what? you are awesome" so it throws up on you. Pretty much describes it in one thing."

"This was my first time shooting a video for ishotmyself and all I have to say is, that was a bit awkward – hahaha - but very enjoyable. I really enjoyed it because I got the chance to express my views on the social standard of what is and isn't accepted. I'm not going to lie though, it was quite difficult in the area I was in to film full body shots but I got there in the end. I pushed through."

"I needed to do this project and in the first few I thought "It's too much... what can I do?!" but when I checked my photos the first time I realised how many I'd already done and how quickly I got into it! It was funny because I got past my fears and it's always amazing when you do something you have never thought to do!"

"I did the shoot at my rose farm between the thorny beauties that I have spent my life picking and being a part of. I started finding new angles on my body I had never seen before. At the beginning I was ashamed of my back and my bum, I'd always dreamed of having an hour glass figure but as the shoot went on I started to realise that my body was perfect, as the universe and god had intended. It was a spiritually aligning experience which I had fun with. No fake art that needs to look perfect because we ARE perfect just the way we are. THANKS ISM!! XXX"

"My idea for this shoot came from spring being just around the corner. There's a contrast between two different locations, one representing winter - cold, wet, concrete - and the other representing spring - sunshine, nature, flowers blooming. I like the contrast between the cold and the warmth; saying goodbye to winter and welcoming spring. In winter, we cover up, shielding our bodies from the cold. When spring comes, it's a new beginning. The sun comes out, flowers start to bloom. There's a different feel in the air."

"I have taken only a few selfies in my life and hate getting my photo taken. Needless to say, this shoot was a bit more challenging for me. Once I got the hang of what my face or body looked like in certain light and positions I was able to have a tonne of fun and feel comfortable. I am very glad to have taken these photos during this time in my life. Photos represent a specific time period in life and at this time while I am traveling, I would like to remember this as the time I was most independent, strong and empowered. These photos represent that in many ways and encourage me to always remember that."

"Ce folio a été pris lors de mon voyage à Barcelone. C'était bien de pouvoir filmer dans ce magnifique bâtiment des années trente, la lumière était exceptionnelle et pour être nu sous 32 degrés c'était tout ce que je voulais. J'ai aussi pris des photos à Montjuic, dans un parc, c'était amusant d'essayer de prendre une photo sans que personne ne me voie. Mission à moitié réussie! / This folio is from my beautiful trip in Barcelona. It was awesome to shoot in this beautiful flat from the 30's, the light was amazing and being naked when its 32 degrees is all you want. I also took some photos in a public park, that was a lot of fun to try to take pictures without anyone to look at me. Like a little mission."
