MenArt: The gay London photographer
MenArt specialises in portrait photography for men of all kinds. Whatever your age, whatever you size. Everyone is welcome. The one thing all our models have in common is that they want to be photographed by someone who understands the male form and knows how to show them at their best.
Guys decide to get naked in front of our camera for all kinds of reasons. For some it comes at the end of a life changing cancer treatment. For others, it follows the break-up of a long term relationship. Or maybe you’re ready to let go of the past and live in the moment, baring your naked truth.
Visit our Featured Guys section to discover the inspiring stories behind some of our hottest shoots. (Warning: 18+ only).
Nude is not necessarily rude
Artists have been fascinated by the male nude ever since the ancient Greeks immortalised their gods, athletes and warriors in marble. Today at MenArt, we use a camera instead of a sculptor’s chisel, but the principle is just the same. Our art is inspired by men’s bodies.
So at a MenArt shoot, you’re free to wear as much or as little as you want. Getting naked in front of a camera can be a liberating experience, and the ultimate form of self expression. It's a growing trend known as dudeoir photography. But if you’re more comfortable keeping some clothes on, that’s fine too.
Being nude is not necessarily rude, unless you want it to be!

The man behind the lens
Graham Martin is one of London’s leading gay photographers. At his studio in Hackney, he has photographed some of the world’s top male models and porn stars. But his work encompasses men of every body type, not just guys with six-packs.
Lots of photographers claim to be gay friendly, but far fewer are genuine specialists in male photography. Graham Martin is a gay photographer who appreciates the male form and understands how to shoot men. He works with his models to put them at their ease and bring out their very best qualities.
Under his "MenArt" trademark, Graham Martin produces passionate, striking images that make the viewer sit up and pay attention.
“I photograph all sorts of people from the fittest to those who could do with a little less wine and a little more exercise, (like me!) I love helping everyone to look as good as they possibly can using light and technique to create stunning pictures.“ Graham Martin
