I first saw Michael's work through a certain social networking site. Someone I am subscribed to had posted a photograph that Michael had taken. Right there and then I was hooked. I had never seen such a stunning photograph. I had to get a copy of Masculinity just to see what else Michael had done.
I purchased this book last week and to be honest, I was sitting on pins and needles until it finally arrived. Thankfully, Amazon don't really take that long to deliver stuff. My book arrived yesterday and while having my coffee break at work, I decided to have a wee cheeky flick through the book. I am kind of glad I was sitting down and I didn't have a mouthful of coffee while looking through it. I don't mean that in a bad way by any means. I was just so stunned to see such beautiful photography of the male species.
A lot of people will probably take one look at the cover and automatically assume that it's full of pornographic images. Let me assure you that it's nothing like that. The photographs are very tastefully done. There's nothing remotely pornographic about this book. Well, to me it's not pornographic. There may be a few people that will use it for some other form of pleasure, but for me I look at this book through artistic eyes. The photographs are pleasing to the eye, extremely sensual, very tasteful, erotic and most importantly masculine.
I don't think I'll ever see another photographer do the male form justice. Whether you're gay, straight or bi you will definitely appreciate this work. Ladies and gents, if you haven't got your copy of Masculinity I strongly urge you to get your copy before it's too late. You have to see what Michael can do with a camera and what he can get his models to do. It takes a lot of trust for a model to do what their photographer asks of them and Michael just seems to have that trust.
I am really looking forward to see what Michael comes up with next.
