About Mark


I created this site to introduce prospective models to my work and modeling requirements, and to provide an official location for collectors and fans of my photography to learn about published and soon-to-be released work.  But even if you are not a model or a collector, I am delighted to introduce you to my photography. As you will note, I love a world of luxurious interiors, verdant gardens, plush textiles, and sculpted male physiques, awash in saturated color.  My greatest joy is creating images that will not only delight and titillate, but pack a punch and linger in the memory.

Welcome to my website.

Mark Henderson
Edendale Studios, LLC

I am a photographer based in Texas who specializes in images of erotic male nudes.  My work continues the tradition of physique and erotic pin-up photography, but with an emphasis on luxurious domestic settings and the expressive use of saturated color.

I worked for many years as an art historian at a leading cultural institution in Los Angeles but I am now a full-time photographer.  I shoot primarily in my home state of Texas.  In addition to the coffee table books devoted entirely to my photographs -- Household Idols, Suburban Pleasures, Poolside, Luminosity, American Eros, Poolside Pleasures, and Lap of Luxury -- highlights of my work are included in Men: Twenty Five Years in Photography and various anthology books published by Bruno Gmünder, including Beautiful VisionThe Men of beautifulmag.eu.JewelsBrief EncountersTurn On: TattoosNatural Beauty, Trunk Show, Turn On: Sports, Cock Tales, Turn On: Muscles, Gay Porn Heroes, Turn On Gear, and Beards: An Unshaved History. My work appeared regularly in Men, Freshman, and Unzipped magazines, and my images have been featured in Männerbeautifulmag.euDNAThe Male FormDisplayRomeo, Wire, Cybersocket and other publications.
