    i'm a huge fan of George Hurrell. It's a very difficult style to replicate (as are the models), but it's brilliant work.

    I don't think George Hurrell is really what the OP is looking for, as even his portraits of men seem "feminine" by today's standards. At least in so far as the 'Hollywood Glamor' lighting (and printing!) technique is identified with female stars.

    Don't forget August Sander, the German photographer who created a huge body of portraits in the first half of the 20th century. His technique, subjects and lighting are straightforward but incredibly effective.

    I think right now Norman Riley is about my favorite. http://normanrileyphotography.com/ I believe after you go in through the image on front, the portraits are at VII and VIII. Check him out. Beautiful work, in my opinion!

    You find his work in the New Yorker sometimes. Also inpirational for me is Irving Penns older stuff.

    Thanks for the links, Steve Pyke is probably the closest to my own style of photographing male subjects...black background head and shoulders, a more commercial style. Although it takes me back to my other thread of chopping off heads!

    I found some printing styles which is more or less what I'm looking for; the Eddie Ephraums and David Quirke prints on this site:

    I reckon, I need printer's websites for inspiration.
