In November of 2015 and May of 2016 models from Cardiff Life Model Collective were called in to perform self tests for irregularities on breasts and testicles with a doctor talking the presenter through the process.
After being made up with some gore and blood and pale colour for that authentic ‘dead look’ we pulled some shapes and it was done.
GlamourMan was an Andy Lamb project which derived it’s inspiration from a series of ‘hipster’ pics of men with beards posing in glamouor poses with power tools. Andy thought it would be a good idea to have a go, but naked.
I received an email asking if I could find a male happy to be examined by a doctor for a late night edition of Embarrassing Bodies.
