This site was originally started by Dylan Rosser in April 2009. It was actually started many years before that, but that is when he combined all his sites into one and relaunched TheMaleForm as we know it today. The site was born out of frustration of having nowhere to show his work. There were no magazines, besides porn, that would publish full frontal photography and so his showcase website developed. Gradually he invited other photographers to be a part of it an he now has a bit more free time to work on his book projects and fine art prints. He currently has 3 published photobooks and the 4th one is due out at the end of the year.

"I have been shooting professionally for over 6 years, working with models exclusively for the last 3 years. The first half of my career started with me focused on shooting the strength and beauty of architecture, landscape, and nature of the areas i was in. I decided I wanted to bring my style of shooting into the modeling industry to showcase the male form and body in a different way then others."

Through his photography, Marlen Boro creates a unique blend of playfulness and raw sexuality - men of all varieties - unapologetically proud of themselves. In addition to sharing photos of his exhibitionist model-friends (like Dutch), Mr. Boro provides intimate and discrete portraits for his ‘male boudoir’ clients - he promises that no request (whether vanilla or kinky) is off-limits. “Most of my clients are professionals who’ve worked hard on their bodies but can’t, for obvious reasons, be seen naked on blogs. By offering absolute discretion and a zone of relaxed non-judgment, we create stunning images that are treasured for decades.”

Dot began his art career doing paintings under the mentorship of San Francisco artist Felix D'eon. All of this work was done with live models. Dot started taking photos to allow him to continue his work without the model. Somewhere along the line the photography work became more interesting than the painting, and Dot's love of photography began. Inspired by fine art photographers of the male nude like Dylan Rosser, Dot has been seriously pursuing photography for about 3 years. Dot's models are all San Francisco friends from Comfort & Joy (his Burning Man group) and the Radical Faeries. Dot had his first photography show last summer in the gallery space at Eros (a SF sex club). He is currently at work on his second show "Sons of God" which combines Catholic imagery from his strict religious upbringing with the freedom and beauty of gay men. The show is currently scheduled for April in San Francisco.
Ian has been established as a photographer/designer for 20 years. Initially trained as an illustrator before a sideways stepped into photography - initially to provide more choice in shots for use, but then a male nude charity calendar project found that the printers – a bunch of hairy arsed straight guys – commented “we should think it’s porn ‘coz it’s all full frontal...but we love the photographs! You mind if we pin it up next to the girlie ones in the factory?” It began his exploration of different people viewing the same shot, and defining their own take on ‘is it art, or is it porn?’ Does it tell YOU story? And 20 different viewers will create twenty different back stories for that picture. His work has been featured on the covers of QX, featured in AXM and DNA, and has been included in coffee table books published by Bruno Gmunder.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BECOME A CONTRIBUTOR TO THIS SITE THEN PLEASE SUBMIT SOME SAMPLES TO:
We only pay for exclusive images that have not been published before. The images need to be male nudes and NOT FASHION. There has to be some full frontal nudity as well. It is important that the images are of good quality and that the model is hot! Ideally we are looking for
photographers that could contribute regularly to the site and that are from different parts of the world. Since Dylan Rosser and Simon Barnes both shoot in London we think we got the UK covered so it is really the rest of the world were we need more content from. Would be great to get some Australian and South American guys on the site.
