Every now and then, I am asked what I do for a living. And I can now answer without hesitation, with a proud and sincere face, that I photograph male nudes. To this answer I usually get -- at least for an instant -- a surprised look, followed by "So, you're a photographer?" "Well, yes, among other things." It took me a long time to embrace my "male nude photographer" identity. After all, up until recently, I was known as a "consultant" or a "project manager." These are more common and socially accepted identities or titles. I also don't mingle with other photographers or live in the "Male Nude Photographer Village." But now, more than ever, I feel content with my place in the world. I feel "in my skin," liberated, as though I finally have the upper hand over the proverbial cookie cutter. "Do you also photograph female nudes?" is a common follow-up question. Reading between the lines, there appears to be an assumption that as a man I should partake in photographing female nudes. After all, I live in somewhat traditional Slovakia, and not in liberal "anything goes, be who you want to be" New York. Thus, my "logical explanation" is: "No. There are already so many guys who photograph female nudes. It would be really hard to stand out and to make a living that way. So, I specialize in male nudes." As we pass a bikini ad on a billboard, I continue to say "The world does not need any more convincing that women are beautiful. Just look around. Anywhere. I am trying to level the playing field." There is a pause, a nod, a momentary sign showing agreement, which quickly turns into a slightly skeptical expression. "And are you really able to make a living from photographing male nudes?" "Well yes. Believe it or not, there is a gap in the market."
While trends are moving in a different direction to my liking, I can simply describe my take on photography of male nudes as "guys doing guy things -- naked." A guy is making breakfast. Why not do it naked? A guy is taking his bike out for a spin. Why not do it naked? Guys are out having a drink together. Why not do it naked? A guy is giving a presentation at work. Why not do it naked? The trick is to capture these situations in the most casual, authentic and "hidden camera" manner possible. For me, this is an aspirational direction rather than something I am able to fully achieve today.
There are undoubtedly inherent differences, regardless of what type of photography you are producing. The best male model poses generally need a masculine look, so there are a few things you can do to make that happen. But in the end, the same skillset is required no matter who your subjects are. You've got to be proficient with your camera and a master of the soft skills necessary to make people feel comfortable in front of your lens.
Posing men can be a challenge. While the general poses may look the same as those used with female models, there are some significant differences that the photographer needs to keep in mind. All photography is about capturing the essence of a person, or the vision of the photographer. In capturing images of models, we're also capturing what makes a person unique. And along with that, we use society's lens and aim it at a person. Are we looking to reinforce stereotypes or shatter them? The answer probably changes daily with each photoshoot. It's a natural part of the creative process.
Like all other posing, the typical male model poses for photoshoot settings are divided into three primary categories: standing, sitting, and reclined. But within this basic framework, there is plenty of room for variation. Modifications can be added with different leg, arm, and hand placement. The photographer can frame poses differently, depending on if they want a full-length, three-quarters, or headshot image. Here are some best tips for mastering headshot photography.
Classic standing poses all apply to men as well as women. The difference is that with men, you must find a balance between too rigid and too soft. Motion is a great way to soften an image while maintaining the chiseled features and dominant look you may be going for. The best male model poses for photoshoot use are usually ones taken while moving.
Another way to loosen the frame and make an image appear more natural is to have the model lean on something. Walls are good, and you can have them stand on one leg while bending the other. The shot can be taken from any angle. Leaning adds a relaxed flair to photos, and when combined with other techniques outlined below, it can be the perfect look for male models.
Another common look in regular and nude male model poses is the hair swipe. The model runs his fingers through his hair while looking at the camera. Depending on the facial expression, it can be anything from a sultry playful look to a simple candid moment.

These men are poets, and their portraits were taken by female photographers to illustrate poems about the topic of the male muse. Bennett, the founder of Wild Woman Press, began this project to raise money for Type 1 diabetes, a disease her three-year-old son Django has been diagnosed with.
One photographer involved in the project is Izzi Ramsay, who has dedicated her career to studying the nude figure. She has also worked as the director and curator of a London-based photo gallery, and an Art Psychotherapist and Counselor. Her portrait is of Alan Buckley, who won the 2010 Wigtown Poetry Competition, and was shortlisted for the Picador Poetry Prize that same year. He is pictured stretched out sleepily near a window, a visual adaptation of poet Pascale Petiti's "Sun and Life."

In 1858, Henry Scott Tuke was born in York to a prominent Quaker family. A British painter best known for his intimate and sensual paintings of the male nude, Tuke's art fell from fashion in the years before his death. In the 1970s, his work returned to the limelight after he became an icon among the LGBTQ+ community and a new generation of openly gay artists.
The ages of Tuke's models are not always comfortable viewing by our modern standards and this has in the past drawn attention away from his remarkable skill and sensitivity. Some have drawn parallels between Tuke's work and the photographs of Wilhelm von Gloeden who recreated scenes of a classical nature with naked boys. For instance, in Tuke's Nude Italian Boy, a male child leans against a wall or archway made of creams and browns, reminiscent of the white sculpture of antiquity.
Van Gloeden's photographs were however of a more explicitly sexual nature and he was known to pay his young models for sex. Tuke's paintings are never explicitly sexual, the models' genitals almost never shown, and the models almost never touching. His paintings can thus be considered sensual rather than sexual. Sketch for 'Summer Dreams' exemplifies the care and softness that Tuke put into his portrayal of the young male body. Tuke's work invites us to consider the existence of a gay male gaze and how the viewer should respond to and read from his artwork.

I'm fascinated by people in general and making portraits, and, for me, there's this level of trust that can be created between the artist and subject. I think being comfortable with another person and trusting that vision, that's really important for me in the processes -- a person being comfortable working with me. With the nudity, it's still important to me because I feel like I'm working towards a celebration of the male form. For someone to be open to the care that I take when photographing them, that means a lot. That trust is so important. I'm attracted to so many different types of people and I think when you're attracted to someone that you're photographing, you take that care and it shows. That's a goal of mine, to do that with everyone that I photograph. 2b1af7f3a8
