With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, our clients are surprising loved ones with a special gift – dudeoir photos.
What is Dudeoir?
3 years ago boudoir photography was the biggest trend and it is still hugely popular! In the last year and a half, dudeoir photography has skyrocketed. Dudeoir photography is a play on the word boudoir, but focusing on men portraits instead of women.
My goal when we launched dudeoir photos the summer of 2013 was to showcase the beauty of a man in a style that was simplistic in nature, often edited in black and white, showcasing the male form in a way that it was perceived as art or a sculpture. I was introduced to a book by Herb Ritts from my talented friend Chuck, which showcased profound images of men. This was my initial inspiration when I launched this genre of photography.
How to prepare for a dudeoir shoot:
I love a little 5 o’clock shadow for the first half the shoot. A little bit of an edgy look on some men. For wardrobe, men bring a 3 piece suit, classic button down shirts, jeans. A leather or jean jacket, watches and sunglasses. Sometimes, men bring fitted underwear and fitted t-shirts, it depends on the look – every session is personalized.
If you are looking for a unique first 1st anniversary gift: paper is the traditional gift, consider a dudeoir photo shoot.
