    I've done male shoots before, it's not don't have, it's just not organised well. Most of the shoots themed are on looking pretty.

    Men don't look pretty, it's a totally different ballgame, I'm not sure how many organisers can handle a male shoot

    Males are pretty good to shoot actually.

    To me, I feel that there is a degree of lack of confidence in the masculinity of the photographer when a guy shoots another guy. The photographer is afraid of being teased by his peers about his sexual orientation when he shows the pictures of males that he shot.

    Couple this fear with the need to prove that they are straight and their hidden desires, you end up only with babe shots and other much left.

    I have often wondered that if MITA ever allows Playboy and/or Penthouse to be published in here, would the number of such shoots go down?

    Lol!

    So who's interested in shooting males? Be it tfcd or tfc, I would love to have some pics of my own.

    You must be gay or something to shoot males.

    Hmm...then you must be queer to be shooting animals in the zoo?
    That's about one of the most biased and out-of-the-mouth-shooting statement I've seen in quite a while.

    About the topic at hand, it's supply and demand. Most hobby photographers here don't have interest in shooting male models, and there's hardly any male models here advertisting themselves anyway. Maybe it's the culture here in Singapore also.

    Looking at the interest level here, no offence, but you'll probably have a better chance to pay someone to shoot a portfolio for you then calling for a TFCD.

    Haha, if I had your body in your avatar, I wouldn't mind paying someone to shoot a portfoilo for me too. For posterity sake.

    Thats uncalled for and totally irrelevant. I'd have an inkling you may be someone who's interested in photography (models) purely for the "babe" factor.

    Anyway, ronwong, you've brought up a rather good topic. haha, i've been noticing that as well. IMO, i see most shoot okay stuff of "models" (using the term rather loosely here) posted in CS but very rarely do i see something that goes beyond the usual barrage of "wah the model damn hot! upz for you!". As a female, i look and go "hmmm okay. she is decent but not breathtakingly gorgeous" (though i have to concede, some of Gravemaid's models are quite hot. ) which makes me wonder if male photogs in CS are shooting models for the just well, cuz she's hot & they get free "show" especially incases of lingerie/fetish/etc or shooting it to improve their portfolio. Really.

    im sorry if i offended anyone, none intended. just stating my own view. like what many said, freedom of speech and all that crap lah. lol.

    The "you" does not refer to "you", it's just a figure of speech...

    haha thanx man..

    yea i agree with you.. the interest level here.. simply not there.. everyone's going for the nude shoots and stuff like that..

    i've done tfcds before with a male photographer. my avator pic is done by him.. he's quite gd.. he taught me a lot of poses and how to present myself infront of the camera.

    I don't think it's gay to shoot males if you're a male photographer.. i mean.. someone ever told me.. if u're a gd photographer.. u'll be shooting everything.. agree?

    Sounds interesting.. I don't mind shooting guys, as their postures and expressions definitely require a different set of approach from the photographer.

    It is good to learn more!

    I guess we know why you shoot babes; not for other better reaons like beauty or learning or even money but for carnal desires...

    Just to add: you mean if someone shoots animals, they are into zoophilia or beastality?

    Talk about jumping to conclusion.

    I believe what silverfrond alluded to is something that is fundamental to photography and art.

    Photogs photograph subjects they are interested in, that they connect to. The images they produce is a reflection of who they are, and what move them.

    For many, it is pure hormones that dictate what they photograph and what they look at (in this forum).

    But some are motivated by other considerations. One that comes into mind is tunster whose images attempt to create a story - often romantic in nature. And I will not be surprised if tunster is a through and through a diehard romantic.

    So people photograph things that reflect who they fundamentally are, and what they are connected to.

    And I think the main reason why people do not photograph male models is that they do not "connect" to them.

    Give them wigs, some lipsticks and tight short leather skirts.

    They'll be pretty to shoot.

    why such a sweeping statement?

    not to mention skye tan's postings (although the pictures have been used commercially, by nature of posting here, i deduce they are also an extension of his artistic expressions), and the recent S11loop's tfcd sessions.

    i do agree that there are really v few male pics posted for critique... and even fewer outings organized for the male form...

    but i do believe that the male form is as interesting as the female form.. its a matter of how the pics are posed for and captured...

    if there're more interesting outings i'd surely want to do a photoshoot....

    Well, I would. It would be a challenge to do it great. I photographic challenges. I'm rather bored with the usual portrait stuff actually. I mean, if you don't "think" with your lower brain, how many bikini shoots can you do before it becomes boring?
