Everything you need to know and stuff you didn’t even know you should know about male boudoir photography.
More and more men are finding the appeal in a male boudoir photography session. With the chance to look and feel great, plus photos that make you look like a subject of GQ, can you blame them?
While we primarily photograph women, we’re always game to work with the opposite sex. It lets us exercise our creativity in different ways, directing for moodier expressions and stronger angles.
Can Men Do Boudoir Photography?
So often we hear men (and women) say, “No way, not me. Why would I ever do that?” Au contraire. You CAN and should. There are so many reasons to do a male boudoir photography session. Maybe you’re in prime physical condition and want a similar experience to this Mens fitness photography shoot or maybe you think the whole thing is a little silly and want to do a funny male boudoir photography session as a tongue-in-cheek gift to your significant other. That’s cool too.
In our humble opinion, we think it’s the perfect opportunity to push back against the notion men should always be tough, dirty, and unkempt and ladies are the only ones who get to indulge in some pampering. Well that’s no fun!
Male Boudoir Photography Ideas
You’re starting to get it, but still nervous. We understand! How about some male boudoir ideas? Think of the cover shoots of Gerad Butler or Denzel Washington. We want ALL men, not just artists or performers, to have the chance to get some kickass photos. You could do the classic Marky Mark black and white Calvin Klein ad (back before he went by Mark Wahlberg) in white boxer briefs. Or what about something like this more contemporary Armie Hammer photoshoot by Annie Leibovitz. Super sexy and he’s totally clothed guys!! Seriously, look how many clothes he has on!
Ok, so we realize those two are pretty steamy. How about someone more relatable? What about Jason Batemen going with the “messy, just got off work disheveled look“. Or Stranger Things’ David Harbour looking irresistibly approachable in a Moto jacket photoshoot. Could he be more charming?
Boudoir Photography for Men: Comfort First.
When it comes to boudoir photography for men, just know our work aligns closer to what you’d see in Details or Esquire vs. Boogie Nights. We’re happy to photograph you like a male model in an editorial spread or even a tasteful nude to capture your physique. We do not do full frontal or allow any sort of groping pictures.
