Let’s shake things up with something a little different for me on the blog today, shall we? Yes, I do photograph men, on occasion, but usually as part of a couples shoot (both together and individually, if that makes sense). And, I adore photographing respectful and trustworthy men. I hope that’s evident in the photos I’m sharing below. Let me know what you think!
So, why would a man want photos like this, you may be asking? Well, guys should document themselves at different stages in their lives too. They may be working towards fitness goals, using a photoshoot as motivation, want to remember the time when they were their most fit, etc. Or it could be a form of practicing self love. We all need a boost to our self esteem, afterall.
They might have a need for lifestyle shots on their social media profiles or my favorite reason – their dating profiles. I cannot begin to tell you how much of a difference this would have made for me, a visual person, back when I was scouring the dating apps looking for love. Most women are very particular about what we prefer seeing there. No to gym or bathroom selfies, but yes to professional looking, usually fully clothed photos, that showcase your personality an interests, while making you look like a man in charge. Save the sexier bedroom shots for the special woman you are dating, once you get that far, after wooing her with the “safer” photos first. Unless you are looking for something entirely different than an actual relationship on the apps. Wink, wink. Then have at it on your profiles! Ha!
What are some of your favorite reasons a man should have a photoshoot like this?
