Welcome to gentlemenonly.co.uk, a photographic website of men from all walks of life which celebrates the beauty of masculinity through portrait, fashion, creative and nude imagery. To view the gentlemenonly portfolio please click on the pictures below.
The aim of every gentlemenonly photo shoot is to produce just a few striking pictures of each man for the GO portfolio. But to capture just one good portrait, or just one good physique shot, often hundreds of images have to be taken; experimenting with lighting, poses, clothing and composition in order to photograph each model at his best. In the members section you'll find all the original shoots with every gentleman photographed for this site, showcasing their raw unedited photos alongside the retouched portfolio pictures, showing how any man can be turned into a picture perfect model with the right lighting, poses and a little photoshop magic. In the members section you'll also get to know each gentlemen better with the story of each man who is modelling and the issues affecting his life at the time of the shoot - body confidence, relationships, fatherhood, finances, failures and successes. This intimacy hopefully shows how some perceptions and assumptions about modern masculinity can be changed with a little knowledge. The 6'4 intimidating bouncer who is just a big teddy bear inside, the quiet nerd who's a raving exhibitionist, the butch rugby player who's painfully shy, the dishevelled school run dad who's a heroic firefighter, the mouthy street smart lad who is saving money to pay legal bills so he can access to his child; every man has a story tell and by giving each gentleman the spotlight and stripping away the surface veneer these photo shoots explore the male identity and gives ordinary and often over looked men, the chance to be seen and appreciated in a way they rarely are.
Many of the gentlemen photographed here have never modelled before and are appearing here for the first and only time in front of the lens. Gentlemenonly thanks each and every gentleman for posing for this site, and for being brave enough to let their look and their lives be documented for a brief time.
