A Male Boudoir Photographer? Um.......

June 26, 2013  •  7 Comments

Ah yes, the white elephant in the room!

The vast majority of Boudoir photographers are female. There are some talented ladies across the country doing some fantastic work. Like Christa Meola whose work I admire. And, I imagine, there are a group of clients that would only do boudoir with a female photographer. I completely understand that.

However…

IMG_8513 A good portion of my clients specifically tell me they preferred the idea of a guy taking the photos. Why? Because the photos ultimately were for a guy. Just like with a Doctor, there will be 20% of women who only want to see a woman behind the camera, 60% who do not care which gender is behind the camera and only want the best they can find, and 20% who specifically want a man behind the camera.

While the photography business is a part time gig for a lot of photographers out there (both male and female), for me it is a full time profession.  Ideally, you will take a look at the body of work and see which portfolio best fits your personality.  Your photo shoot experience goes far beyond the actual shoot time.  Look at the photographers responsiveness to your calls or emails.  Do they get back to you right away no matter the time of day or is there a lag in their response time.  Look at the timing of getting images back to you after the photo shoot has concluded.  Are you waiting weeks for them to squeeze it in because of they are busy with other things like their regular 9-5 job?  Look at the equipment they bring to the shoot.  Have they invested in their profession with strobes and high end camera's and lenses?  Anyone can call themselves a photographer, but you should choose only the best for yourself.....because you deserve it.

IMG_1849 Any photographer, no matter the gender, should treat you like a customer.  This is a very intimate moment and needs to be handled with respect, professionalism and confidentiality.  The images on my web site are there because of the expressed written consent by these lovely ladies to allow me to use their images as examples and to help inspire others to take the plunge.  If consent is not given, the images are kept locked in a password protected gallery for the clients eyes only.

I will not only capture how pretty you look, but convey how sexy and sensuous you feel. The images will have the “wow” factor. My images are meant to knock a guy’s socks off. I love hearing feedback from wives and girlfriends of their guy’s reactions. It is always positive and once the quality of the images is obvious, the gender of the photographer becomes irrelevant. In fact, I have received cigars and bourbon as thank you gifts from the fellas, which is always appreciated. ;)

In short, find a reputable photographer whose style you feel serves the ultimate purpose of the shoot and go with it, regardless of gender.

These days its utilization isn't just restricted to the standard store and withdrawal purposes yet in addition for payrolls, business advances and even bill installments.

That was really good video to watch, the wonderful thing what I have seen in that video is that how those little children have performed that art is really amazing one to me. I request you to add this link in http://www.essayheaven.org/ blog so more number of people can look at it and know about it.

I believe it's not about gender but the personality of a photographer. I had quite a number of photoshoots when worked with top essay writing services reviews (https://topwritingreviews.com/). With someone you feel easy and are eager to show the best of you while with others.. it just doesn't work.
Why don't you correct photos say in photoshop or something? They are adorable, but nowadays people are used to bright, close to unnatural pictures and yours are just lost among all the glitter.
