Let's draw attention to the fact that so few male models make it onto the PurplePort 'Front Page Images' list in comparison to their female colleagues... Why is this do you think?

There are a number of reasons I imagine; photographers are less inclined to shoot outside of their comfort zones, there are fewer male model accounts, and the fact that the community is perhaps more inclined to celebrate the female form more than the male... Despite these factors, there is still a multitude of gorgeous, talented, camera-ready male models that can help you achieve a more interesting and diverse portfolio!

Wouldn't you love to see a change in the current attitude towards male models? Don't you think they're deserving of more recognition than they're currently getting?

Have you been thinking lately how you might push your photography to the next level and up your portfolio game? Then get organising your next photoshoot with a male model! Don't let your photography get stale by shooting the same thing every time, keep your interest (and everyone else's interest) alive and try something new!

Browse below for some awesome images from the incredible selection of male models on PurplePort.
