About The Photographers

Vincent Keith
London

I was increasingly frustrated that I couldn't find images of men that reflected my tastes and sensibilities. Airbrushed and sporting six-packs, the men I saw in most photographic work didn't appeal. So few people seemed to concentrate on capturing masculintiy in a way that was natural and confident but not cocky and 'perfect'. So I decided to create photos that appealed to me. By reaching out to firends and through social netwoks I managed to build a portfolio of over 190 models and to create a body of work that truly reflects my way of looking at men.

Stuart Gregory
Greater London/Essex

With a keen interest in media and pop culture, I've always been interested in photography. Apart from studying photography in my youth, my career left little room to explore the art form other than as a model from time to time. After a 20 year career in law enforcement, I've recently launched into a new career in photography. My inspiration is drawn from my travels, music, pop culture and and the amazing men I am happy to call my friends.

Bernard André
Bruxelles

My photographic universe is contemplative, it is made of fantasies and memories. I have a strong taste for B&W, for minimalism, for lines, curves, textures, structures, shadows and dark images with a classic approach. An attempt to unify without contradictions classicism and modernity, or when one is no longer the antinomy of the other but rather the result of the fusion sublimated where only the aesthetics matter. Exploring the sensuality of light, creating and capturing my own definition and vision of Masculinity. I care a lot about emptiness, about the silence of it about its power its energy. A quiet stillness. A calm, silent quest for the Absolute that you are invited to join.

Charlie Rogers
New York

Most people call me Charlie. I'm a photographer based out of New York City, NY. I was born with a scar on my face and probably as a result, I'm drawn to the imperfections that make us all beautiful. My work has been included in the Bruno Gmünder collections Cock Tales and C.U.M., as well as exhibited as part of the Angelus Novus project in 2000 and at Gallery Plan B in 2014. I've published a number of books -- that number is currently five and growing -- each with a unique theme highlighting some aspect of what's important to me. I've been profiled in The Advocate a number of times, notably for my inclusion of men over fifty in my work, and for my book Pause. You can see more of my work at:

Joe Mazza
San Francisco

My early work as a photographer was shooting film in remote and desolate places around the world.  My focus was not on scenery, but on the faces of the people who lived there.  It was those people who helped form my fascination with the story behind the eyes of my subjects – a trait that still finds it’s way into my work.  For the past 25 years I have worked in the film and television industry both as anactor, and a photographer/videographer. It’s here that I learned about lighting and composition to create a sense of emotion or drama in my images. I have a passion for developing new talent and collaborating on photo shoots to capture something spontaneous and unique.  You can see more of my work at:

Fred Motte
Paris

As a child, I was always sensitive and reserved; a bit in my own little world. It was only during my rebel teenage years that I actually started to see life differently. Gradually, I learnt to get by and to build myself as a person. I followed a self-education approach, trying a many different subjects. Quickly I realized that I was different from most teenagers... I was passionate about fashion, drawing, images and cinematography. Eight years ago, thanks to social media, I was spotted by some photographers who asked me to pose for them as a model. Then, 4 years ago I decided to move to the other side of the camera lens in order to explore this particular art. Photography offers infinite possibilities... I work mainly within the sports and fashion context of the male body. The several sports disciplines and the codes embedded in them are for me a source of inspiration, which I like to develop always with a little bit of provocation; being at the borderline of censorship..

Daniel Decot
Mons - Belgium

I am a photographer living in Mons (Belgium). My search? ... a picture that is as simple as possible. I prefer the release during a session. No drama effects , no acting, but just a look, a presence, the outline of a gesture, nothing artificial. A true emotion, discreete but intense, my purpose is to reveal a little bit of truth, without an sensationalism. By approaching my subjects with a certain neutrality, I can focus on the mystery in everyone and give the viewer a jumping off pout for their own imagination. It is about meeting someone, about sharing some time together. No voyeurism. No transgression. A loving contemplation from my side. A sincere introspection from theirs. Together, exploring our differences, the texture of our skin, our similarities, identity, going as far as we can and need to. You can see more of my work at:
