About Me

Woolsrake Photography: Men, Naturally....
mature men, hairy muscle, blue-collar physiques

As a professional male nude and portrait photographer and artist, based in New York City since 1989, I have enjoyed capturing the male form in photography and painting for my entire life.

While my interests have focused my personal work on hairy chested athletes, mature workmen and "bearish" men, the models with whom I have worked throughout my career have varied widely.

The influences on my work range from the corn-fed laborers around me as I grew up in the Midwest, to the fury celebrities of my youth, to the glistening hulks in Bernini's fountains in Rome.

Many models come to me seeking portrait, nude and fantasy photographs for their personal and professional use. I pride myself in not only the quality of my work but also the rapport I have with my models. A great number of my models have never been photographed nude before and enjoy the first-time experience as much as do the professionals with whom I have worked.
