I've been to Clearwater Florida several times but don't remember a photographer by the name of "Studio 9 West."
Just figured that out and edited my response.
PhotoPro34 aka LooksInternational aka Michael Henss aka Michael Cercone.

I love the photo and one of the reasons IS that there is slight hint of androgyny to the shot and simply wondered if it was purposeful. If that was or is the case then i think it is quite brilliant in fact and the model should be complimented for having this ability as male fashion models often need it.

The mixing of masculine and feminine characteristics, can be and often is a powerful fashion statement and although I was probably not clear enough I was really complimenting the shot with my question.

I am sorry if you may have taken it the other way.

, , , slight hint of androgyny? Never gave it much thought while shooting the image but as far as I know his chemical balance is in order.

You never gave it much thought? Really? He's wearing makeup, pink earrings, a giant heart locket bracelet and is posed in the classic "S" type of curve usually recommended for women. The wrist posture is also a stereotype...

I'm not being critical of Brandon or you at all, Jim -- but I'm saying I think just about anyone looking at the image will see the androgyny that's been referenced. You had to know it was there when you created the image, right?

Unfortunately when someone states the obvious it often does come off as some form of discrimination. That's unfortunate.

I'm not bothered by any of the comments at all. Just don't think it has a lot to do with photography and what do I care what his or anyone elses life style choices are as long as it doesn't involve my life? In todays world none of what Brandon is showing in this image is new to todays society. Now if one of my macho friends were to make a life change and start wearing these kinds of things, I would notice and wonder what the heck happened.

By the way, androgyny has to do with things like testosterone and estrogen and maybe something about mixed up x and y genes in the human body. Unless the dictionary is wrong.

The definition from Merriam-Webster mentions nothing about genes or hormones. It's just a word to say something is gender ambiguous. Here's the definition:

Main Entry: an·drog·y·nous
Pronunciation: \an-ˈdrä-jə-nəs\
Function: adjective
Etymology: Latin androgynus hermaphrodite, from Greek androgynos, from andr- + gynē woman — more at queen
Date: 1651
1: having the characteristics or nature of both male and female
2 a: neither specifically feminine nor masculine b: suitable to or for either sex
3: having traditional male and female roles obscured or reversed

I think most viewers of the photograph are going to pick up on that...so whether you intended to challenge traditional fashion, values, beliefs, practices, etc....you have. My point in responding was to say that recognizing that the photo is gender ambiguous isn't a judgment of anyone.

Anyway, you do good work -- this shot included. I always enjoy your posts. Peace.
