DuDoir - Boudoir for Gentlemen

Personal & tailored towards YOUR needs...

My Story

I always find it easier to explain why every guy should have a DuDoir shoot by talking about myself and my experience in front of the camera lens.

So cutting to the chase, this is my story:

For most of my life I was not in the best of shape & I always had body issues, I grew up the short fat kid and even after a delayed growth spurt that took me to 6'0" I still see myself as short and fat. While no longer short, I was still overly "plump", yeah I had tried various ways to get into shape, or at least acceptable and more healthy and the efforts never latest. But in 2016 started something new and for once it seemed to work. Once I hit a certain goal, I wanted to reward, not just myself, but also my wife who was a motivating force - so while she was on a business trip, I booked myself a Male Boudoir session.
I am a shy person, so I was totally terrified, but I enjoyed myself and plan on doing it again.

It was an amazing and liberating experience, getting to show off and feel comfortable with myself and my body.

And in case you are wondering - yes that is me...

About our DuDoir shoots...

"Boudoir for the Gentleman" or "DuDoir" for short, will be a unique experience for each individual. As with all of our shoots, the style and feel of each shoot, and especially our 'DuDoir' shoots are tailored to the individual. For a very muscular gentlemen with large stature, who is very confident in himself then we would look into some hi contrast work and low key to bring out body definition. Hey if built like a Greek god, we can go in that direction.

Whereas for more slight built guys, more subtle, intimate even suggestive poses such as laying down looking suggestive. Someone who is a good dancer and energetic, well that opens up a whole box of options...

We want to know your goals, what brought you to wanting a DuDoir session. What is it you enjoy & lets see what we can incorporate. Basically, we don't offer a set "menu" of poses, we want to work with you, bring out the best in you, its a chance to try something you might not normally dare do. And we have learnt from our clients!

Its about you having fun and feeling good about yourself.
We did two shoots with Evan, but it was the first that was at an apartment that is important here, because these photos show how we can utilise a clients space - a space that the client is familiar with and comfortable in. We used the features of the apartment and as much natural light as possible to create subtle images.

So that is what this is all about, you don't have to be young, muscled & toned to do DuDoir - just a desire to have a go.

Some basic things for you to know.

  1. You as the client are in control.
  2. More than in control - you decide what we do and do not do
    While as the photographer, I may make 'suggestions' and guide you during a shoot, we will never 'tell' you what to do
  3. We will only go as far as you are comfortable.
    If you only wish to go down to you pants and underwear, out of modesty - that is fine.
    Some gentleman go for "implied" nudity, so we may see that they are naked, but because of the of how the client is positioned, nothing is shown and modesty is preserved. A strategically held towel, or a slightly open Kimono robe, everything is implied or teased.
    Or you may go all the way.
    You may not know until the shoot itself...
  4. Even professional models are nervous at the start of a shoot like this, even if they are experienced with the photographer.
Starting a Dudoir shoot in Business casual can be fun, because it provides a picture that you can use anywhere - yet only you know that it was part of a Dudoir shoot... And we have had gentlemen who tell us that they wish to maintain modesty, but then so enjoy the body Positive experience of the shoot, that they throw caution to the wind and get some really outstanding (and very flattering) photos of themselves...
