Hey guys, decided to come up with this thread after my little tour around Club Snap. I certainly do see many models shoot coming up in the Outings, Gathering and Events section. Some of the themes there are rather fresh and different from the contemporary pose type of shoots.

This place is definitely bustling with events for the fellow photographers with such a large pool of models and talents, be it little children or young adults. However, there seem to be many models of the female sex rather than the males..

Personally, I am a model with an international agency, but stopped for a while as i need to serve my NS. I have seen some of the local male models and they are certainly not bad and can equally be on par with the females. Are our males really that lousy?

Following next.. We see lots of nudes, lingeries.. Just the normal type of shoot where the girls dress in a skimpy way, pose and shoot. Practically it's just babes showing themselves rather liberally. Why is that the photographers here gets so "high" over it. Hmmm. Isn't Asia a rather conservative place. Why should this type of shoots be promoted so widely?

Hope i have said nothing offensive to any of you. Just an observation.. Wish to hear you guys comment and give your opinions on this. ;)

Yes. I do agree that most of the photographers here are males. So... Opposite sex attracts or is it they feel inferior to the male models that they don't even want to give it a shot? ;)

Well. I am still here, alive and well. Correction, it would be, Singapore is more or less more conservative as compared. We can't even beat Thailand. Well, if sex sells, than where's photography? Might as well visit the Red Light District. Oh yes... The ones in Western Areas would be more thrilling than Singapore. :D

Well you did mention "ASIA" and did not specifically mention Singapore.

When I say SEX SELLS does not mean the red light district area lar about going to look for a prostitute. Is that all you can think of?

It's more like a general term lar. Women has always been projected as an object to some men (NO OFFENCE to the WOMEN OUT THERE). So if you are in a male dominant website, you don't expect them to shoot more male models than women. So women in bikinis, nude and lingerie shoots sells......not men.

Why would the male species want pay to shoot another male? I would not shoot unless it's paid job.

Where is photography? It has always been here all the time capturing babes in action.

You are a male model in an international agency, which one is it? Please share your photos and experience with us. There are still some members in CS would love shooting males.......hehe.....THEY LOVE SHOOTING MALE MODELS.........:sweat:
