Celebrity photographer Marcus Hyde has been accused of offering a model a free photoshoot in exchange for nude photographs.
Los Angeles-based model Sunnaya shared screenshots on her Instagram story of her alleged direct messages with the famed shutterbug, who also works as Kim Kardashian’s personal photographer, to whom she says she reached out after he posted an ad looking for models.
In the messages, Hyde allegedly asked her for a nude photo but she said she didn’t have any. She told him she was “comfortable shooting lingerie and partial nudity.”
In return, Hyde apparently said it would cost $2,000. If she sent him nude photos ahead of time, the shoot would be free.
“Gotta see if your [sic] worth it,” the response read.

Sunnaya wrote over the first screenshot, “Male photographers be like,” and over a subsequent screenshot she wrote, “Ur f–king wack.”
Hyde, 33, allegedly responded, “Find someone else. I’ll keep shooting celebs.”
Sunnaya’s friends and followers backed her up by reposting the alleged exchange, which ultimately caused Hyde to allegedly respond to one fan, telling her, “Suck a fat big d–k.”
Following allegations, Hyde has made his Instagram account private.
Hyde didn’t return Page Six’s numerous requests for comment.
Hyde, who also frequently works with Ariana Grande, survived a near-fatal car crash last year. Kim and Kanye West donated $25,000 to Hyde to alleviate his medical costs, and in April he attended West’s Sunday Service performance at Coachella.
