NN & Trouble - 
I haven’t submitted in ages, mainly because I’ve been off taking photographs of other people, with some minor success. But recently I’ve started shooting self-portraits again, often with this nifty Yashicamat camera, which makes doing mirror self-portraits both easier and prettier. Seeing as NN was in a sense where I got my start in this phase of my photography career, it seems only fitting that I send you one, as a way of saying thanks for the early and enthusiastic support.
This is also only the second time I’ve posted an image with my face showing anywhere on Tumblr. I spent ages being super secretive about my photography, hiding my face, using a pseudonym, and so forth, but I am done with all that now. This is me, warts and all, and I’m cool with that.

Andrew, it’s so nice to see the man behind the magic. I’ve admired your work for a while now and think it’s really cool you’re feeling comfortable enough to attach your name and face to your practice. It’s something I’ve often fantasized about doing but know I’m not ready to take that step. Your camera has a really nice quality to it and I’d love it if one day Ninja and I could be in front of the lens. -Trouble

I started experimenting with photography a few weeks ago. I feel like I have a lot to express creatively and have finally found my outlet. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d get much out of it. To my surprise, I’ve had a lot of positive feedback. A lot considering I wasn’t expecting any. I do have a confession… I was totally one of the bathroom selfie dick shot guys. :S. It pains me to say it. Even now my face is warming up and I feel a little embarrassed. But I’ve decided to take photograohy as hobbie. This is one of the photos I’m most proud of so far. It is also my first black and white. I am excited rk hear your feedback :). 


I’d be curious to know if you were the ask I received earlier from the guy wondering how to get away from the dick pick photos. If so you really took well to my advice and I’m impressed with what came if it. You should definitely be proud of this submissions it speaks more to your eye and ability to appreciate the human form than just what’s in your pants.

Dear Trouble and Ninja,
after an exciting week off, today is the last day of my vacation and so I’m gonna get some extra sleep, since tomorrow I’ll have to get up early for work again.
I hope, you two have a relaxing sunday as well.

Another ninja resting. I think recharging is on a lot of our agendas this Sunday. You look very relaxed in yours and those lines of sun are beautiful across your body.

Hello Ninja and Trouble,
This Sunday I have decided to take it easy. No plans, and no real reason to wear any pants. Although it’s a nice day out, today looks like it will consist of movies on netflix and maybe a little cat nap… ha ha
Have a great day! BHM

That day sounds really nice for both you and your feline companion. It can be really restorative to just veg out and have pet time. We should all take necessary breaks from life and I hope your break has been a good one.

Hey there Ninja & Trouble!For almost a year now, ive been exploring photography a lot more, especially nude self portraits. ive messed around with it in art school, and as a designer i need to know my way around my camera, but it was never my forte. the past year has been great, and ive learned a lot through doing it, sharing it with you all and the rest of the community on here. But just a month ago i moved back to the city i go to university at to finally finish up.
I’m at a new place, a new room, and am looking forward to taking new photos while i’m here. Though I was nervous that i would not be able to for one reason or another and until now, i had not taken any new photos since i had gotten back.
Today (Saturday), i had a little time to myself and figured i would take a few images to test out where i could shoot, at least in my room. So here is one from the first batch of new photos in my new place. Im so excited to share it and looking forward to all that comes down the road. Who knows, maybe i will even be able to shoot with others, and on both sides of the camera.

It looks like you know your way around a camera so I hope you keep exploring and get the opportunity to do some shoots. You’ve really made the most of the sunlight in your room and it’s nice to see the greenery outside your window, it compliments your walls and adds a nice texture to the photograph.

Heya Ninja & Trouble
This is a very fun theme this week, and for me one of my kinks is having sex in an outdoor setting that isn’t familiar territory. Sadly since I don’t have a partner to explore this visually with, it allows me to focus on the other part of the kink, which is public nudity. 
If I’m by myself or with lovely company i’ll start thinking of the possibilities. If it weren’t for bugs and itchy grass and so on I think I would be hiking/camping nude all the time, it just feels right. That combination of doing something you really shouldn’t be doing, risk of getting caught and being in a new place is just a electrifying experience.
This photo then just shows how much i’m willing to risk in order to get that satisfaction. This was behind a public rec field area, and I think I might have been slightly caught twice!!! :P
thanks :)

I like how in the top photo, he’s still undressing showing the real and human side of his adventure, and it goes so well with the bottom photo standing tall and proud with hands on his hips striking a superhero pose. I’m glad you included both images they work very well as a complete piece.

Hi Ninja&Trouble
I don’t know if this counts as kink. But I love being in control and able to tease. To turn your partner on when you know they can’t do anything about it is just so much fun. And so much more satisfying once you give them what they want. When you know what gets them going and send them little messages in totally inappropriate places. Knowing how desperate they get while I sit there with a big grin on my face.

You created a very iconic image of the role of a dom, a headless figure with belt in hand ready to discipline and bring both pain and pleasure. I’m sure your image will get subs at heart very excited.

Good morning/evening NN
Can this photo have something to do with a “kink”. Maybe… Possibly… To me it represents regaining control over my emotions, as it was something I lacked over the last week. Some trips through last year memories did not help, since few kinks that were present then, no longer are…

I really enjoy when two submissions almost have a visual conversation between one another and I couldn’t help but post this one after the prior because of that. The lighting is done very well in your submission and really helps to lead the eye around and down to the gesture of removing your pants. -Trouble

Hey NN crew. I’ve just begun to do this self portrait thing early this year, and have begun to post some online in the last couple of months. I think I knew as far back as high school that I might be into doing something like this, but never really got the guts to do it until recently, and I’m still not sure it’s something I’ll continue to do, but……here goes I guess. I’ve found it to be a totally different art form from what I’m used to doing, and am intrigued that there are all of you guys and gals out there who are doing the exact same thing. I’d rather shoot outdoors, but this is one I liked from a spur-of-the-moment indoor thing I did a few weeks ago. Look forward to perusing all of your work!

It’s never too late to start, and I hope the more you create portraits like this the more you’ll enjoy it. Hopefully you can find a good spot outside and let your beard and body feel the sunlight. Hopefully you’ll be able to take a photo as well and share it with us.

Time goes by fast, I had a lot to accomplish during this summer and now I realize my summer ends today before I go back to my busy life. Basically how I’m feeling right now.

Time certainly does, but hopefully you can look back on your summer and feel happy for all the nice things you did during that time off, even if it wasn’t the things you originally intended to do. I really like your stance in this shot and the lighting. Thanks for sharing with us. -Trouble

Ninja,
I submitted an image recently, the ‘dick pic’ I was shocked and overwhelmed to see it on your blog. Seeing it filled my heart with joy, nerves, excitement, a small bit of pride, and again nerves. ha. Thank you.
As I stated in that submission, it was my first time ever posting a nude photograph of myself. I just wanted to share why I exactly I did so. I have just undergone numerous momentous changes in my life. All of which signify the beginning of something new and the end of a long period of self inflicted recluse and mostly being ‘stuck in a rut’. 
I made a promise to myself to use these changes as the excuse to kick-start my life again. Build back the relationships I have lost and was losing, both with friends and family. But most importantly with myself. Many reasons contributed to me losing or more so letting go of myself. I could feel parts of me drifting away. I wanted them back, and more. I am encouraging myself to try new things, with a new mentality of ‘try anything once’ (like submitting a nude image). That submission to me represented ownership,rediscovery, self expression, openness, a risk, a first, and many other things which grew me.
This submission is to depict where the first one came from. A man who feels segmented and shattered. A man who made a promise to himself to pull himself back together, rebuild, and reinvent. Thank you for aiding in this process. Go raibh maith agat.
Le Grá,
M. 

We’re happy to have been a contributing factor to your development and to hear you’re working on rebuilding yourself. We change and evolve so much in our lives and it’s these points of tension where we feel we really have to push ourselves to be different where we really allow ourselves to grow. Thanks for another great image.

Hello Ninja and Trouble
First time submitter here, though I’ve been watching your blog for few weeks now.
I love how open your community is, and so, I’ve been thinking of submitting something from myself, for quite some time now. I don’t really have many good places, to take photos around my house, neither I have the best tools, but I do enjoy working with what I have, and ocassionally, the photos turn out quite nice. 
Today is a very hot day (and from what I can hear, storm is soon to come), so mostly, I’m just relaxing, taking some time to read and enjoy my time.
Have a great day everyone.

A stormy day indoors with a good book is a nice way to spend a day and although you say your space and tools are limited you still definitely created a submission worthy of SS. The lighting is great and I like the movement between your first and second photo. -Trouble

Hi Ninja and Trouble,
This is my first time submitting.  I really love how supportive your site is!  Your followers submit such amazing pictures and stories.
I am away on a trip and decided to take some artsy pictures in my hotel room.  Over the course of an hour or so, I took about 20 different ones.  It was a lot of fun.   I like this picture because while it is sensual, it has a certain vulnerability to it as well.     
Thanks,

Hi Ninja,
Lately I feel really stressed out. Finals period is coming to an end now. Only one more to go and I’ll have some free time again after burrying myself in books and papers for the last month. I’m so looking forward to finally having some time to relax and take photos again.
Happy submission sunday

Looking at your submission made me feel like I need a good stretch. I feel like I can see your muscles lengthening and it must have felt so good, especially consedering your level of stress. It’s amazing what working out our bodies can do for our minds. Hang in there, you’ll have nothing but relaxation soon. -Trouble
