Verner Degray won best photographer 2015, 2016 & 2017 by Advocate Magazine. Living in Cannes, Verner continues to photograph some of the world’s most beautiful male models.
Tell us a little about your background. I am from the north of France, Picardy more exactly. After studying interior design in Paris, I left for Tahiti where I started to become a photographer. I always wanted to, since I was small, since my mother was amateur photographer and I spent my childhood in the dark room to develop pictures with her. We only photograph what we like. For more than ten years, I have devoted myself to photograph the male, to work the light on the muscles. I had the chance to start with beautiful Polynesian boys for whom nudity was almost natural. Then I went to Los Angeles, where I had the chance to exhibit my work on Hollywood Boulevard, then to Las Vegas for several months. I also exhibited my work in Palm Springs, Tahiti and also Mexico. My exhibitions won me the title of best photographer USA 2015, 2016 and 2017 by Advocate Magazine. I live now in Cannes, in the south of France. I continue to work around the male nude, with a public part (censored) and a more exclusive (uncensored) part that can only be found on onlyfans.com/vernerdegray. On one side we discover the sensual aspect of my work and on the other the more sexy aspect with photos and videos really exclusive of my work, we discover the models in what they have more intimate. That‘s why I made the decision to only offer this content to a restricted audience and only to Onlyfans.
What’s it you’re looking for in a model? I try to work with any kind of model, I‘m not only looking for muscular boys. What concerns me most is their sensuality. We can be a heap of muscle and still totally devoid of sensuality. I like working with boys of all origins, of all styles, as long as they are sensual and motivated. I am always looking for new projects and new models, so if you feel like asking me, do not hesitate to contact me and if you have a show room, I am ready to study any proposals.
How would you describe your aesthetic approach? Like all photographers, I work primarily for those who watch my work. A photographer without a viewer is useless and I‘m happy to live from what I love most in the world: photography.
