Are you ready for testosterone overload?
Russell worked as a wedding photographer for many years and afterwards he worked with a number of agencies in the North Eastern part of the US; focusing on sportswear, casual, formal, and swimwear photography.
Russell’s work with the Eagle Male introduced him to working with the male form in a more pure light, not enhanced by form flattering clothing, the use of makeup, and overt illusions of associations to commercial products.
For Russell, this type of photography was truly liberating and refreshing – the opportunity to capture the beauty of male musculature, the character found in a man’s face, and the power of the male presence highlighted with only simple shadows. It was at this point that Russell found his niche in the world of fine art male model photography.
Russell is a friend of mine. He has offered to take some pictures of me, not promising to make me look as good as the beautiful men illustrated here, and I’m not hoping to become a key representative in Russell’s huge portfolio.

The incredible thing about the male body is every part of it is designed to be functional. Nature’s genius is in making all these body parts come together to make a visually beautiful whole, which is masterfully captured in Russell’s work. The question is: is this composition of male parts actually beautiful, or have we simply been programmed to see it that way?
