Understand that people like to look at beautiful girls, but there is still commercial needs for male models, like CYC shirts, don't see any events featuring them or any mention or interest in them at all here, is there no 'non-commercial' male model shooting? Or for the more, mixed, say a few girl and a few guy models in a shoot?

Ok lar, let's face it, most people want to shoot babes only, if demand is low, organizer of model shoots can't make profit, who want to do it?

I got male models what... but I won't hold shoots featuring male models coz we know that the female form is always more pleasing to the eye. If you really want you can PM me, I can hold a private one for you.

who say male photographer cannot take pics of male models... you mean if there is any such event, it would be a hunk-gazing, all female event? The male form is also very good artwork of nature... profit driven is not good.
Just bringing out only, personally I really have no interest in taking picture of male or female form. But I think photography is not about always joining the 'taking babes' event, also, childrens or other subjects, the more variety and unique the better.
Someone PMed me to start a male model event, so I believe there is a group interested in it. Hang around and fix something up. Personally I really not into taking pics of humans.

The reason is simple: Supply and Demand.

Or are you here to discuss philosophy, the reason why things are what they are, ie in this case, why male photogs don't want to shoot males?

duh, if u havent noticed, these organised shoots are gawking fests and the photos of the bikini chio bu will go into the portfolio and people who see these shots on portraits and poses will praise the photographer for shooting such a wonderful pic of a hot babe

whats the point of putting a commercial hunk into the portfolio if people they wanna impress are more or less men who wanna see mens magazine style pretty girls.

seems like everyone just wants viewing pleasure and *pant pant* *drool drool* *nosebleed*

even mattlock puts these girls with "nehnehs" and inner thighs showing for himself and others to gawk at.

go figure.

im just teasing our bird guru, no offence.
Male models are low in demand here. If you want just ask the fellow model shoots organisers, they will be most willing to set up a session for you.
