The only thing I would fix is having him sit up a bit straighter. The best part of this pose is how chill he is! Make sure one hand covers the fist.

The secret here is looking away and having the hand create interest on the face. This is a tricky look but it looks amazing when you could pull it off.

Slight head down + soft forehead wrinkle. Then have one arm bend showing off a watch and the other resting near the ab area. This one is a little tricky.

Chin forward + slight shoulder twist = Super simple pose

Having your male subject sitting down relaxed with his body pointed slightly away from the camera can be a very great photograph if executed correctly. Try some shots with the face looking away and some looking at the camera. Have fun and stay relaxed.

This is a great example of a fun portrait where the guy looks normal and not too posed. If they have glasses this is a perfect way to give their hands something to do.

Although this may not be a picture of a real guy.... Try and recreate this anyway and see what image you get. I bet that it will come out stunning.

A side profile with an interesting depth of field shot can really help tell the story of your subject.

The key here is having the guy use the arch of the chair to relax his arms on. Make sure that the chair is the appropriate size and doesn't take away from your subject.

Using an object (in this case a shot glass) and looking away from the camera can make an excellent statement! Use it to your advantage.

Here are three good profiles to give you some different looks and ideas.

Using a staircase or small chair is the only way you could get a shot like this.

Pretty solid look right there with some good lighting wouldn't you say?

The key here is not having those arms dangling all boring and dead. Notice how he puts one hand in his pocket and is slightly curling his fingers with his other hand.

Sitting down with one knee up with your arms posed like this can create a look of strength and confidence if done correctly.

Looking like your just about to get up out your seat can create a cool like as long as you don't look like you're trying too hard.

That cool little I'm cool/ shy at that same time look can be hard to create but will look good on camera.
