'What you will find in expose more is not just the male body exposed, but elevated, treated with dignity, and allowed to have all it's unique characteristics. There are a variety of skin colors and body types. You get the joyful plushness of youthful collagen as well as the glorious signs of age and weathering that happens to all men as they get older'
Christopher Harrity, The Advocate
Over the past year, I've given you a sneak peak of some of the incredible men photographer Anthony Timiraos exposes more of. Last month I featured Tanner and earlier featured David and Rixio, all three models featured in expose more, Anthony's visually powerful follow-up to last years expose.
Beyond ethnicity, one’s cultural background impacts the way lives are lived and how their ideas and passions are formed. For so many, this is often revealed on their bodies. It shows in their choice of piercings and body art and in the length of facial and body hair. It may most sharply show up in their comfort with being vulnerable, exposed and naked in front of the camera. Anthony’s imagery celebrates these diversities, and in doing so, gives his models the confidence to stare straight back into his lens knowing their bodies, as well as their unique features and personality traits, are being respectfully and beautifully spotlighted.
The men you see here are part of the over 30 models featured in the 200 plus follow up Anthony's first complication of classical nude photographers, exposeexposemore continues the photographer's journey with capturing the unique beauty and desirability of a diverse collection of magnificent men.

Discovering the work of new and innovative models and artists is one of my favorite parts of working on FH. Maybe even more exiting and fascinating for me, is being able over time, to follow their growth, creative journey and expanding bodies of work.
Earlier this year, I was introduced to model Tristan Woods through his work with Studio1x. (An Empowering Exposure) I was immediately drawn to Tristan's look, especially his strong face and piercing gaze. I also loved how beautifully Tristan posed his strong, muscular body in such elegant and sensual poses. It was clear many photographers of the male form were drawn to Tristan's look as well and several months later I was fortunate to feature Tristan's work with StudioMGphotography.(Bouldering)
'I've worked with a dozen photographers over the past year -- some whose talents are unquestionably off the charts and others who barely qualify as photographers (some I couldn't even post on my Instagram because they were, well, lame). As I've become more aware of my body and what makes an amazing photo (subject, lightening and content) I started envisioning how to take the "perfect" photo. I also invested in a high quality, easy-to-shoot camera (Sony RX-10).'
I noted when I featured Tristan's work with StudioMGphotography, the increased strength and confidence that could be seen and felt in Tristan's work through his many shoots with such varied artists throughout the first half of the year. In search of that perfect photo, Tristan headed off to Orcas Island, the largest of the San Juan Islands, located in the northwestern corner of Washington state, and turn the lens, and the creative control, on himself.
'Rock climbing, hiking, working out and martial arts are my top hobbies. I really enjoy the great outdoors, and love capturing natural beauty -- so I figured what better that adding a ripped physique to an amazing natural back ground. The shoot I did on Orcas Island required some skill to set up: first I had to find a beach on the west side of the island to capture the sunset, secondly it had to be remote. I managed to spot a beach at the base of a cliff , so I climbed down it and scaled the shoreline until I came to a deserted lagoon. With the help of my tripod and an app the interfaces with my camera I was able to pose and take the pictures with relative ease.'
'So far the most liked photo on my Instagram is Seaside View.' (below)
