    Photographing the Male Nude Workshop May 22 - Hyattsville, Maryland

    This will be an all-day seminar on photographing the male nude in the studio. We will start the day discussing the male nude in the history of photography, looking at examples from Muybridge to Mapplethorpe. We will discuss the unique challenges and opportunities of working with a male model. Lighting, posing, and working with props will be discussed, as well as solo and multiple model shoots. Please bring ideas and questions to share, a sketchbook to record poses, and images that inspire (does not have to be photographs). Plans are to have two models available. All camera formats are welcome. For those interested/able, a follow-up session will be scheduled to have a chance to share work created during the workshop. Tuition is $200 plus a $100 fee for the models.
    There will be a break for lunch (there is a very good little sandwich shop at the end of the block, or Franklyn's Restaurant/Cafe is a few blocks down the street).
    Instructor bio:

    Good luck with it; it's a neglected branch of photography for sure. Lots of beefcake photography of bodybuilders, but not so much serious fine art nude photography. I don't know why more photographers don't shoot nudes of both sexes, but somehow "nude" always means female nude.

    Charles-

    that's one of the misconceptions I'm trying to combat with this workshop. Male nudes don't have to be just beefcake or porn. You can create emotionally and intellectually engaging nudes with models of either gender - obviously the cultural, psychological and emotional resonances are different. I think in some ways it's like that quote, I think by Edward Weston - "There are things you can say in color that you can't say in black-and-white" (if someone out there knows the source, please correct me).

    I think Scott's nudes are his best work, especially the gelatin silver ones.

    Jim- you flatter me, but I'll gladly accept the compliment. If you know anyone interested, please chase them my way. This is going to be a great opportunity if you've ever wanted to try working with a male model - I purposely keep the student/model ratio very low so everyone gets plenty of camera time with the models. If this is successful, later in the summer I'll run a nude in the landscape follow-on.

    Another note-

    I will be offering two scholarship spots in this class at a 50% discount for students enrolled at least half-time in a post-secondary educational program (9 credits per semester or more) with student ID and proof of enrollment status. I normally offer this discount also to high school students, but you must be 18 or older with proof of age to take this class.
