IF YOU are part of the 2017 James Cook University Veterinary Science class, chances are you have posed naked for a photo shoot.
When the JCU vet students started planning their end of year ball, the idea of making a nude calendar was suggested as the perfect fundraising concept, and eventually 40 out of their class of 64 chose to strip down.
Student Chloe Trompf said it was not hard to convince the fun bunch of students to get their kit off.
"So back in 2015 at JCU, the graduating class did the first version of Vets Uncovered," she said.
"At that stage we were all earlier in our degree but we saw them all go through it and they said it was absolutely fantastic.
"So when it came around to our time to think of a fundraising idea for our graduating ball, and we have a close cohort and we are all quite fun, we thought why not continue on with the tradition?"
As well as raising money for their graduation ball, proceeds will also go to mental health foundation Tie Up the Black Dog.
While there were a few giggles on the day, Chloe said stripping bare was not too difficult as everyone was motivated knowing they were supporting such a good cause.
"Ten percent of our proceeds go to the Tie Up the Black Dog Foundation," she said.
"When we were taking off our clothes, I felt like we were stripping off the stigma around being naked, just like we are trying to remove the stigma of mental illness."
The stylised photos, which were shot by Vicki Miller Photography, always have strategically placed props covering private parts - only bare bums are seen in the final images.
"There is nothing sexual about it," she said.
For the most part, the photos show the young vets in situations they may find themselves in their future careers.
Chloe was even brave enough to pose in the buff with a preg-testing glove.
"I didn't actually preg-test the cow," she joked.
"But the cow is in the crush and I have the glove on."
Before the photo shoots, some of the students had help from personal trainers and beauticians, getting fit and investing in fake tans.
Although the two-hour bus trip to Charters Towers to the shoot location was nerve-racking, Chloe said by the end of the afternoon the class was completely comfortable in the buff.
"And the photos Vicki Miller took, everyone just looks beautiful," she said.

If the class raises more than enough money needed for their graduation ball, all proceeds will be donated to Tie Up the Black Dog.
