Homeowner Accidentally Takes Naked Bathroom Selfie And Posts Online

Published: 08/08/2014

NudeBathroomSelfieWe've all shot those large master bathrooms that have multiple walls of mirrors. It's pretty hard to escape being in the shot somewhere. This is where Photoshop is the only way out for the photographer.

But this homeowner in Austin, Texas was taking his own shots, in the nude, for whatever reason and probably never heard of Photoshop. He then proceeded to post the photos on HotPads to try to sell his home.

Was this an accident? I'm skeptical that it was accidental. Look at the social media coverage that he got! I'll bet the property is already sold.

So there you have it a new angle for getting great social media coverage... until the listing site takes down the photos!

Thanks to Ethan Tweedie for this article.

  1. I am sure you're right Larry: the marketing boost must have been great! But before my clients demand that I offer similar I would have to ensure that it was a necessary part of the script… and not entirely gratuitous. Though it didn't seem to stop Michael Douglas in Basic Instinct! I fear my efforts might be more of a "fatal distraction" !! Looking forward to next month's "members only" gallery meanwhile.. happy shooting!
