Portrait photography, a well-known and popular style, is all about capturing the emoticon and personality of the subject using poses, composition, background and lighting.

Capturing a good portrait takes experience, practice and skill. There are some excellent tips for working with male models in Male portraits: How to photograph men (Jana Máčková, Learn Photography) and 25 Best Male Poses – Guide to Photographing Men (Expert Photography).  

This collection of PurplePort images is full of simply stunning portraits, all created by the PurplePort community and featuring male models exclusively.

If you enjoyed this collection, explore other photo collections we've curated on The Purple Blog (including our other male model photo collections).
