Flights of Fantasy:
Gay Porn’s Best Art Direction and Photography


Benji Lovari checks out some of the gay adult studios with the best art direction and photography.



The Gay adult industry is constantly changing in response to new technologies and style trends, as well as the needs and priorities of consumers. In today's competitive market, fans expect a weekly release of new material. Studios have had to become more efficient with their workflows, but many are still finding the time and inspiration to create high quality, playful videos that feature believable fantasy worlds brought to life with location shoots, cool sets, costumes, stylists, careful  lighting, expert editing, and top notch models. In addition, most of them still take the time to do professional digital photo shoots – and some studios have even published photography art books. In addition, they use makeup, lighting, and retouch to turn models who are already naturally gorgeous into stunning, larger than life dream boys. It’s a labor of love (in more ways than one) and this month we'll showcase some popular examples.

Bel Ami
Bel Ami has been one of Europe's leading gay adult studios for over two decades, and during that time it has honed a unique aesthetic of male beauty that has resonated with fans around the world.

They've filmed their models in gorgeous locations such as Europe, South Africa, and Greece.

CockyBoys

They build on each model's strengths, and as a result they've introduced the world to some unforgettable new stars and invited fans to rethink their own preconceived notions about what makes a person sexy. The studio’s models are smart, funny, charming, nerdy, and everything in between – and their personalities have played just as big a role as their bodies in making fans fall in love with them. The studio produces ambitious DVD's that mix sex, art, and narrative to create exciting new kinds of gay adult entertainment and expression.
