The Pressures Of Ruling A Kingdom | Dudoir Photography

John here, sneaking in on a day that isn’t mine but hey, I take creative liberties. So I bet you are looking at this image and thinking, what does the title have to do with this picture? Perhaps because it is Sunday and I have Game of Thrones on the mind and I think Odin would fit in perfectly with the cast. Tall, rugged, handsome – I wonder what house he would be long to? As you know Marlen loves natural shots and moments that aren’t overly thought and planned (or at least he makes it feel natural and unstaged) so the subjects don’t look like plasticine posed mannequins, but if I could convince him to do it just once with a model, how delicious would Odin look on a throne with leather and fur robes? — MontanaJohn

Ross is Friday’s Gentleman | Dudoir Photography

 

 

I finally consented to do a shoot with Ross that focused on him clothed.  Apart from the gorgeous images, it totally sucked.  ;)

 

Weird day today.  Chaps and I are headed to Ann Arbor.  I haven’t been back since I graduated from law school.  Definitely going to hit up Zingermann’s deli – although I won’t be able to get my favorite reuben sandwich (since I gave up meat) – but I’m not worried.  Everything there is so delicious…  Why am I so hungry???

MontanaJohn: rethinking the needle… | Male Nude Photography

So piercings are not really my thing but every now and then you have to open your mind and expand and redefine your definition of beauty and Christopher is doing that for me in this image. Then again, maybe it is just because he is swaying me by licking his lips. — MontanaJohn

TC’s Jaw | Dudoir Photography

A portrait. I love how TC has perfectly crafted his beard to accentuate and define his jawline. He’s also has a set of fascinating scars. I didn’t ask for details, but they bring heaps of character to such a youthful face.
My best bud, Chaps McGraw, from law school is arriving today. Chaps is leaving his New York law firm job to go in-house – and his new gig includes a car allowance. So he’s assuming a lease on an M3 convertible that he picked up in San Francisco.
I signed up for the Minneapolis to New York leg of the trip – we leave tomorrow for Chicago.

Behind The Scenes | Dudoir Photography

It’s been such a wonderful weekend, being mellow with Buster and Maggie. After the winter that wouldn’t end, it’s nice to remember why we live in Minnesota.

Today’s image is of Kosta. Perhaps you wonder how the shoots play out. And yes, sometimes guys get a bit bored when I’m trying to figure out the light… Kosta, for instance, was fascinated by the fit of his gloves.
