Photographing men

Implied nude in studio and hotel boudoir.

This start to finish photoshoot features incredibly fit aerial artist Jimmy. The course is split into two parts. First in a dance studio, shooting movement and physicality of aerial straps, silks as well as handstands.

Next we shoot in a hotel room going for more relaxed boudoir style images.


Brand new for 2022

Create stunning male portraits

This start-to-finish photoshoot runs for over 3 hours, and brings you along to fully experience behind the scenes of an artistic + boudoir photoshoot.

Photographing men brings its own challenges and opportunities. For this series we are shooting Implied Nudes - where the models penis and testicles are not visible in the final images. In some movement poses we use strategic covers to keep things in place.

The studio segment involves movement and dynamic poses. We work with the light available in the dance studio and add various continuous lights to shape the scene and give great muscle definition.

In the hotel section we find great pools of light to shoot in, and set up a painted studio background to shoot more formal poses masculine portraits.

"The Hotel Photoshoot was awesome!  The “fly on the wall” format was very educational to see how you interacted with the model.  I also appreciated how interactive you are with the model-she had some great input on the creative aspects of the shoot.  This is a great course for photographers, as well as  models who want to improve their posing."

Jon Clarke, Toronto, Canada

"The hotel photoshoot was revealing for me. The model itself is marvelous. What I also liked in this shoot is that Matt is going more in depth regarding lighting techniques. Perfectly done. Looking forward to other shoots with the same education level."

Yannick from Belgium

"This is a very well set out course. I like the rapport between you and the model as it shows how a shoot can be relaxed and professional. The different options shown with regard to focal length and aperture was also very helpful. Good job."
