First of all, you have a great body. You need to get better shots to show it off. Right now your port looks like it was taken by a High School Freshman in the photo club. In other words you can do better.

One thing I notice about guys who are well endowed like you, and who have good size to a flacid penis, is that the penis looks much smaller when you do a whole body shot. It kind of "gets lost" against your body, especially when you have a muscular body such as yourself. In other words your penis loses much of its WOW affect.

Look at this photo:

18+
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30517481

This model is extremely well endowed, and we catch the true WOW value of his endowment because in the shot and cropping we see a much better scaled body shot. Yes, his penis would still look very large if we could see his whole body, but it would severely lose that "Oh my goodness he is so large" affect that we all get when we see his photo.

In other words, if a person is well endowed such as yourself then make sure the photographer is using angles and cropping to show us how much of a WOW quality your endowment is.

Good luck!!

I'm not very knowledgable on male nudes... but from what i can see...

i would definitely work with a better photographer. having someone who knows what they are doing and has a location for it... makes a world of difference.

also, try getting images from different angles.. all the photos you have posted are taken from about chest height.. so getting different angles will give your portfolio an extra boost.

as far as posing... i wouldnt do those "the beach is that way" kinda of thing... there are other ways to flex and not look so "arnold". also keep in mind of what YOU want to showcase.. if you want a specific look.. then make sure that gets accomplished.. whether it be posing like the statues or doing more sensual poses.. figure out what you want to accomplish and keep that in mind

Why not?  Don't need to pretend to be shy when you are not.

It seems to me that you are just standing there naked. No artistic or other merit.  Lighting is not interesting either.

I have just one male nude in my portfolio.  You might want to look at that image for an idea of posing and lighting.

Good luck!

But just one worthless opinion.   smile

Your current nudes, document your physique, you may want to work with some other photographers to get some different styles, and looks. Perhaps work with some more dramatic lighting and simple props to convey a mood or tell a story.
Just an example: almost 18+ http://www.redbubble.com/people/dagger1 … ortfolio_2

Your nudes are just bad photography (lighting, composition, angles), as others have pointed out.  Definitely try to work with better photographers.

As a model, work on your poses.  You look very stiff and unnatural in all of your images.  You also need some work on your expressions.  You seem to have a blank look on your face, or are looking too far off camera in several shots.  Try not to look too far to one side, because too much of the whites of your eyes show when you do that, and it's not flattering.

Best of luck to you. smile

The only photo that has any legitimacy is
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29778
...and then only with lots of reservation. The mere fact that some effort in controlling light in this photo makes it the best of the worst in my books..
I would honestly use another photographer and several of them at that, ones who know what they're doing with their studio gear.
Throw some shadow and light in the right places and your physique and parts of your "private" anatomy will stand out and hit the viewer in the face...no pun intended.
At the moment, the light is flat and does you no justice at all. I know you look heaps better than the way you are presented in the images currently in your portfolio...all the best.

Depends.

I prefer to photgraph outdoors, natural light, beautiful locations.
A plain background, indoors can work, with better lighting.

What kind of work are you ISO?
Clothed? Artists model? Nude?

There are enough photographers near you listed here that you should be able to
do a 'trade for' shoot at a nice location.

that picture makes him look thinner as he is wide hipped and does not have visible abdominal s.
