Some words from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. photographer Emitt More about his work:
"One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't pursue photography or anything artistic until my mid 30s. Even when I did, I didn't attack it in a manner that represented the fire that it created in my soul.
"Somewhere around 2003 I bought my first camera, a Nikon SLR, I got for $300. I took classes here and there and spent hundreds of dollars on film and developing shots that weren't very good. But through trial and error I found my eye in the expression of masculinity and all that it can mean.
"For the past 14 years I have collaborated with men of all kinds to create works that speak to them, to me and to those that view it. I have worked with professional and everyday men, providing each an easy, comfortable and safe process to be their true selves. These men and the work we have created have helped me grow as a man. I look forward to continuing this work and showcasing more Men of More.
"I am working on my first book and most definitely open to collaborations with models of various sizes, ethnicity and age."

"Men are stifled by society's ideas on masculinity and many times are unable to explore and show the many facets that make them who they are. The male body is usually captured to show muscles, strength, power, and virility. And let's not forget the "most important" thing -big dicks. But there is so much more to be seen: vulnerability, grace, beauty, sensuality, intrigue, and even femininity.
"Over the past years I've worked with men from all walks of life; men of different ages, ethnicities, body types, identities, fetishes and sexuality. Each of them presented a view that further expressed concepts that could only be captured by camera. Men are not known for being very expressive but there is something about a camera (and a good photographer) that helps to change that.
"Through guidance, freedom, inspiration, collaboration and integrity, I produce strong portraitures and artistic works that provide relevance and validate that men are complex forces of nature."
