I did a bikini photoshoot but now I'm not sure if it was legal or not advice would be helpful.

More detail might be useful. Age, parent / guardian permission if appropriate etc

Its not illegal at 15, With under 18 shoots It really doesn’t matter what you are wearing, The law concerns itself with the vague term of "decency" which is not clearly defined however the rule of thumb is: could the images be regarded as sexual? if so then its a no go area, if not its fine. so with that in mind its quite possible to shoot inappropriate or illegal images while you are wearing a boiler suit and wellys or decent lingerie images, its the posing and context that will determine the decency of an image.

Because its such a vague area many photographers myself included don’t shoot under 18s at all. However some photographers do work with under 18s and some specialise in the area, I am not not sure if she is still on the site but the U18 moderator Marianne is the best person to go for advice about this.

The core of it has been said - I'm a moderator on the site and active here so if you need to raise anything with me about the behaviour of a photographer from this website, please drop me a message, I'll try to help.

If you're fifteen, legally, you're not generally going to be held responsible for the consequences of anything you did so please don't worry about that aspect - I'm very keen to make sure you weren't persuaded to shoot anything you might regret or that made you feel uncomfortable at the time however,

Ian
