The Naked Tog aims to gather creators and photographers who are doing great things in their niche and give them a platform to discuss the honest truths about our work, lives, and behind-the-scenes. In essence, we’re stripping things back to be honest even at the highest levels, and in doing that I hope to help others around the world to feel a bit better

For this episode, I sat down with the one and only Peter Rooney – an international award-winning photographer currently based in Bahrain, he shoots a diverse range of creative storytelling portraits. In between his competition work, he undertakes a limited number of commissions a year, creating definitive, distinctive, high-end, and totally unique fine art portraits for clients, and from this one conversation he made my whole world make sense.

He’s an amazing person, an epic photographer, and I had an absolute blast learning more about him!

The nature of The Naked Tog means that we’ll uncover some uncomfortable topics both in this episode and in the future. It might be suicide, mental health, sexual assault, self-harm, domestic abuse, financial distress or something else entirely but we do get deep. And for that reason, we need to provide trigger warnings and disclaimers. Consider this a general catch-all trigger warning.
