Herb Ritt: The Elegant Photography of Masculine Glamour

Herb Ritt: The Elegant Photography of Masculine Glamour

Herb Ritt began his photographic career in the late 1970s, quickly gaining a reputation as a master of art and commercial photography. Ritt was in fact self-taught. He came from a suburb of Los Angeles, near Hollywood’s stomping grounds for the fashionable set that he would later immortalize. While growing up, his next-door neighbor was to become the Hollywood “tough guy” Steve McQueen.

After studying economics at Bard College in New York, Ritt moved back to the West Coast and went to work as a sales representative for his family’s business. Along the way, he picked up a camera and began shooting photographs as a hobby. Ritt’s friendship with Richard Gere in the 1970s, as the story goes, led to a drive in the desert, a flat tire and an impromptu photo session with Gere at a service station that launched his photography career in Hollywood.

In addition to producing portraits and editorial fashion shoots for Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview and Rolling Stone magazines, Ritt also created a large number of successful advertising campaigns. After 1988 he directed numerous influential, award winning music videos and commercials. His fine art photography has been the subject of exhibitions worldwide, and many significant public and private collections hold his works.

Portraiture of the nude physique is the main theme of Herb Ritt’s imagery: models, muscular men, athletes, bodies that express force, sensuality and beauty. Perhaps more than any other photographer of his generation, Ritt, who died in 2002 at the age of 50, redefined masculine glamour with his notoriously on-the-edge images of modern-day Adonises, whose highly muscular physiques he adoringly mythologized in his photographic studies.

City of the Brave: A FDNY Calendar of Sexy, Strapping Hunks

City of the Brave: The 2009 FDNY Calendar of Sexy, Strapping Hunks

The sexy new 2009 FDNY calendar, City of the Brave, is full of strapping New York City firefighters, and it’s just about to hit New York City’s store shelves.  But this year, there’s something different about the calendar: the hot FDNY hunks will be appearing in the new calendar anonymously, their faces shadowed or concealed by the wide brims of their hats.  Last year, FDNY Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta banned future editions of the annual calendar after nude photographs had surfaced of 2008’s cover model.

In the 2009 calendar, the firefighters are photographed engaged in scenes that depict their actual roles in active duty: sawing through locks, rappelling off buildings and saving victims. But you still get a great look at their hot, rock-hard six-pack abs, lats, pecs, biceps and triceps!!

Proceeds from sales of the 2009 FDNY calendar, City of the Brave, raises money for the Thomas R. Elsasser Fund.

Photos of the Day: Masculine

Portraits of Dreamy Sleeping Men

Sexy Mormon Guys on a Mission: MormonSexPosed

Men on a Mission: MormonSexPosed

The Men on a Mission Calendar features twelve handsome returned Mormon missionaries from across the United States who, for the first time ever, have dared to pose bare-chested in a steamy national calendar. Usually seen riding their bicycles and preaching door-to-door, these hunky young men of faith explode with sexuality on each calendar page. Hand-selected for their striking appearances and powerful spiritual commitment, the “devout dozen” are stepping away from the Mormon traditions of modest dress, and “baring their testimony” to demonstrate that they can have strong faith and be proud of who they are, both with a sense of individualism and a sense of humor.

The general public is largely unaware of the selflessness and sacrifice of these missionaries. They have helped the poor, fed the hungry, built schools and homes, and provided service to many people in need. Theirs are stories that deserve to be told. While the fact that twelve young returned missionaries are posing shirtless will certainly raise eyebrows, it may also help to sort out some common misconceptions of Mormons by celebrating the beautiful bodies, great looks and amazing stories of service of these deeply spiritual men. Intended to be a light-hearted spin on a social taboo, The Men on a Mission Calendar is a tongue-in-cheek celebration of the selfless servitude of missionaries.

The Men on a Mission Calendar will benefit a variety of worthy causes. Each of the twelve missionaries will have the opportunity to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the calendar to a cause in an area in which he has served. Some of the charities supported will include Care For Life, The Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity.
