Arkansas Discoveries Part 4

In the fall of 2011, I returned to Lake Ouachita and this time stayed in a condo owned by a friend, and Kyle traveled down with me this time as well. I was down there for a mixture of business and fun and added an extra day to my stay as well. We saw and photographed some great sunsets and beautiful scenery with exceptional fall colors and waterfalls that week, and Kyle got to shoot with my photographer friend DJ, from the Conway area, as well as a couple of models, Landon, who was new,  and Nick, one of my older models from southwestern Arkansas. As soon as we got settled in to the new place, we drove down to Hot Springs to check out the color with what light was available and then headed to the chinese buffet…and came upon this beautiful sunset along the way…. Sunset Lake Hamilton 1   …after supper, we headed back to the condo and I gave DJ a call to see when he and Landon could come down and shoot and settled on a morning shoot two days ahead. I told him about the waterfall and we planned to shoot there as well with both Landon and Kyle…soon after that, Kyle and I hit the hay after a long drive and long day. The next morning, I took care of business, four hours worth, and then we went down to Hot Springs for some vacation fun activities, spent most of the day doing that, but came back and I spent some time photographing Kyle as well…although he isn`t from Arkansas, he is a super hot model and a very good traveling companion as well, he likes to do some things I like to do and enjoys going with me from time to time…and has traveled with me a few times to Arkansas. Plus he is mature for his age and responsible, dependable, honest, and reliable as well, what more could you want in a traveling companion/model…. Mirror 1   Kyle has a slim toned build, he is a gymnast and tumbler and acrobat and wants to join the circus someday where he can do all of those things that he likes…I really like watching him move into those handstands and other unique positions that he can put himself into, he is an amazing guy to watch and photograph….this place had some really neat mirrors and we took advantage of that…. Mirror Hottie   …and these poses with the mirror really showed off his toned build and lines… Mirror Hottie 2   Window Light Bed Boi 3   Window Light Bed Boi Hard 2   Bed Boi   DJ and Landon showed up the next morning and after the introductions and some small talk, we got started, me shooting Landon first and DJ shooting Kyle…Landon has a very nice swimmers build and is easy on the eyes with a pleasant personality and was fun to work with….he took a liking to the holie jeans Kyle had made for me and I let him wear them under the condition that he had to return them…. Holie Jeans Hottie   Underwear Flirt   Mirror Hard Hottie   Bed Hottie 3   Chair Flirt 3   Flirt Art 5   …we soon headed for the falls, the temps were good and warm and when we arrived, we had the place to ourselves, there was good light and good color…I again started shooting Landon since he is closer to DJ who can shoot him anytime, and DJ was enjoying his shoot with Kyle as well…I started Landon off in fire gear….  FF Waterfall Stud   FF Waterfall Bunker Boi 2   FF Waterfall Bunker Hottie   FF Waterfall Bunker Art   Fall Special 1   Fall Special 2A   Waterfall Hottie 12A …a few times I saw Kyle doing a handstand while waiting for Landon to change outfits….

Holie Jeans Studs 3A   Holie Jeans Studs 1   Together 1   The next day Kyle and I resumed our other activities and then that evening, went down to HS and met up with Scott, one of my former models,  and one of his buddies, for supper at a bar and grill that had huge flat screen tv`s inside…everyone was watching the Razorbacks playing long time rival Alabama. Kyle and I were famished by the time we got there and squeezed into a booth with Scott and Riley and ordered a steak…for a hole in the wall joint, the place sure had some good food. We visited with them for a few hours and then took off for the condo, wanted to get a good nights rest before heading home the next day with a few stops. The next morning we woke up early and headed to a few waterfalls on the way back…Kyle had been with me at one of the falls a few years back and helped me with a shoot there but we ran out of daylight and I didn`t get to shoot him then, so this trip down, he asked if we could shoot there sometime during the trip and I said you bet. As it was, I was going to stop off and see Nic, one of my older models who has been with me several years, and the waterfall Kyle was referring to, was on the way, so we were gonna kill two birds with one stone this time. This waterfall is usually pretty crowded this time of year, but this time we found it to be virtually devoid of all people…we didn`t know at the time we pulled up because there was a car in the parking lot, so we decided to play it by ear…and started out in the holie jeans that Kyle had created…. Waterfall Holie Jeans Stud 1   Waterfall Holie Jeans Stud 4A   Waterfall Art 8A     Waterfall Art 2A   Waterfall Art 3A   Waterfall Art 1A   Waterfall Art 4A   Waterfall Art 7   Waterfall Art Boi   …when we finished and started back toward the highway, we still hadn`t seen another soul there…I wish now that we had shot some nudes while there, but due to the wet leaves on the trail, someone could have easily walked right upon us. There was a nice waterfall on the way back, that we stopped at for a few minutes…it`s located about ten feet off the road and there is a campsite next to it, that was empty this time as well, but we decided not to take any chances there either…. Waterfall Hottie 2A   …we then headed over to visit with Nic for a couple of hours before heading to the reunion and on home.  It was two years later before I worked with anymore models…my most recent trip in the fall of 2013, I had the pleasure of working with a very cute young man named Tre, who wanted to break into some modeling work to pay off some extra bills and help his family out. I stopped off in HS my second day there and met him in town after checking the color in the national park campground. After some small talk, he hopped in my truck and we headed to the falls to take some initial test shots. The falls were really rolling this year, the area had received a good soaking rain a couple of days before my arrival, so I had noticed alot of creeks were up and rolling as well, on my trip down there the day before. I hadn`t given much thought to the waterfall tho, but it didn`t bother him or me, made for a better backdrop…. Waterfall Hottie   I had discovered on the way to the falls, after picking him up, that Tre had a really laid back and pleasant personality, easygoing laugh and a very cute and sexy look to him…I had a feeling he was going to be great to work with, and despite his inexperience as a model, he made up for it with his maturity, flirtiness,  and his yearning to listen and learn…I soon found out I had a natural model on my hands….

Arkansas Discoveries Part 3

In the spring of 2010, I discovered a few more guys in Arkansas when I found out that I would be going to another reunion near Hot Springs once again. I took a few extra days off and started my trip in Joplin the first day, to shoot a couple of northwest Arkansas models at the waterfall there…one of the biggest and best waterfalls in the Midwest. I had no sooner checked into the hotel when Dane, the first of three models, showed up….Dane and I had been talking for a few months online…he is a super sweet guy with a nice slim build, had never modeled before, and wanted to get into some good opportunities in nude modeling work. He had a good look and build so I had suggested that he come shoot with me there for his first shoot. Since hotel rooms really don`t make good studios for test shooting a model, this one wasn`t too bad, there was good window light and one of those neat jacuzzi`s in the corner…..

Drying Off

…but I had a better studio later that day at the waterfall, when I shot Dane and another Arkansas model, Crys, there. Here is a photo of Dane at the falls….more can be seen at the Waterfall Shoot at Joplin post in the Glamour Guys section….

…and here are a couple of Crys, who I first shot in some waterfalls near Mena a couple of years earlier….this was my second shoot with Crys, who is a hot guy with a swimmers build and a natural flirt and model….

Art Takes a Pounding

 

…when I say natural flirt, that takes no explanation but when I say natural model, that is to say that Crys is the kind of model that you tell him what your ideas for the shoot are…in this case, I told him here we are at a fantastically beautiful waterfall and I would love to see some posing in the falling water and spray…so Crys makes his way carefully down the slippery and slimy rocks to the bottom of the falls and poses on his own on top of the rocks in such a way that he shows off his sexy physique and build and muscles, that combined with the sensual water spray, makes a photographer like me want to shoot as many images of each pose as I can before he changes, in order to get a great one…and fortunately for me, Crys is the type of good model that he holds each pose for a few moments so I can do just that, get a great one or two or four….he was also adventurous enough to get into the pounding water as it was coming down and pose within….

Gettin Soaked

 

…I always think of Crys as art in motion when I am shooting with him, just a super nice guy to work with….and very easy on the eyes as well.

And since I had them out there late in the day with sunset approaching, I decided to shoot some of them together there as well…Crys was a good influence on Dane, some of his adventurous abilities rubbed off on Dane I`m sure and he helped Dane with some posing ideas as well…

…Dane did very well tho, for his first shoot, being a natural flirt really helped him out….he enjoyed it so much, that he came up and shot with me the next weekend at a friend`s farm, for his second shoot, and did even better then….showing off his assets more there….

…after Joplin, I drove down to a neat old mill the next day and photographed a cute new southern Missouri model at a historic old watermill, you can see that story and shoot in another post on this site, also found in the Glamour Guys section, and then drove on down to the Hot Springs area afterwards. I met up with my good friend, Arkansas model Randy, who I have worked with a few years now…he took me to a neat waterfall that he had found earlier in the year and then we went to supper that evening at the steakhouse, where another of my models, Scott, worked at then….Scott has been with me several years and we have remained good friends through the years and whenever I am going to be down there, I always let him know so we can get together for a day and catch up on old times. 

Randy and I made arrangements to shoot a couple of days later on his day off at the falls and then after supper, I headed to Lake Hamilton to shoot the fireworks…that was a great show to see and photograph…..

Beautiful Bursts Above Water

 

…the next night I shot the fireworks at DeGray Lake, and it was a neat show as well….

I had some other activities a couple of days while down there…after all it was a vacation for me…so I had arranged to meet and shoot Randy at the waterfall a couple of days later during the morning, and once we arrived, we found some friends of his there, and decided to just do a glamour shoot, meaning he kept his jeans on and took off his shirt….we started up at the upper end of the falls where three separate streams of water fall into the upper pool of water, which is about four feet deep…here he decided to get wet on a hot and sticky summer morning….

…we decided to do a couple of artsy type images with his jeans on on the log above the first set of falls….

…then he was standing below the falls and resting up a bit…I could tell he was mulling it over…he wanted to shoot some nudes there, but that was impossible to do that day….

Considering His Next Move

so we decided to come back the next morning and see if we could shoot with some privacy then….and as it turned out, we were the only ones there all morning and had great light and warmth….here are a couple of my fave images from the shoot …..you can see more of this shoot in the Waterfalls Near Hot Springs post in the Adult Nude Guys section….

…I told him Chance, a model from the Little Rock area that was referred to my by my friend DJ, would be shooting with me the next day… I had the opportunity to shoot Chance the first time in St Louis on a brief layover between flights at an area hotel there…..

….and I liked what I had seen of him at the hotel so much I had invited him to shoot with me on this trip as well…I planned to take him to the falls, so Randy graciously volunteered to meet us at the falls and be our lookout. Here are a couple of images, there are more in the story with Randy in Waterfalls in the Hot Springs area in the Adult Nude Guys section….

I returned in the fall of 2010 for my annual vacation there, and this time stayed in one of the all suite hotels in Hot Springs on Lake Hamilton, it was a very pretty hotel with great rooms and great views from the windows out over the lake…nice but not pricey like some of them can get. I gave Randy a call on my way down and met him for supper once again the first night at the steakhouse and got to see Scott there again as well. Randy came to the hotel the next day in the afternoon and we headed to the campground at the National Park nearby to shoot the beautiful fall colors there…I had driven through there that morning on my way to some other activities, and found the color there to be quite a bit nicer than years past when there….I started out up by the concrete arched bridge at the end of the campground…we were working with spotty sunlight and great reflections…. as I set my cameral controls, Randy made his way out on the narrow ledge with holie jeans and a maroon zippered sweatjacket on….and looked quite innocent and sexy in it….

…we didn`t see much color on the other side of the bridge, so we walked downstream til we came to a very colorful area and shot a few images there…

…and then we went down to the lower end of the creek where it flows through some pretty large rocks and found more color down there…

I always enjoy working with Randy, such a sweet guy to work with and visit with whenever I am down there, and a great friend as well. The next day I shot with a cute guy that I had photographed a few years before when he first moved into the HS area…Clint is a sexy blonde boy, and he gave me a shout early that fall to inquire as to when I would be down there, because he needed to spice up his portfolio so he could get into some good paying video work…as much as he likes to flirt with the camera, I knew these images would work well for him…and they did….

…he had turned into quite a cutie in that short span since I had seen him last….great smile too….

On the last day I was there, I was scheduled to shoot a new model that was referred to me by DJ, my photographer friend in Conway…he had told me about this hot guy named Pierre, who was out of the military and now had a job walking a lot…had a muscular build and very sexy look to him…I contacted Pierre and arranged to test shoot him the last morning in HS…he showed up on time despite having to drive down from the LR area in heavy fog…and I decided to shoot him there first and let the fog burn off before we ventured outside to shoot….I started him off in some fire gear loaned to me by a friend….

…for this next one, I had him lay down on a ledge that extends out into the water…wish I had shot a few more like this without the gear, but it was right about then that some people showed up and we went to the park campground to shoot some more images with color….

…we must have gotten there at the right time of day, because the colors were unbelievably gorgeous next to the creek and we wasted no time in shooting some fantastic images with the colors….

…we wrapped up the shoot after this and while he headed home to Little Rock, I headed north for another reunion before heading home later in the afternoon. I finally got to work with Pierre again a few years later, after he took some time off from modeling for family issues. Those images will be along soon. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arkansas Discoveries Part 2

During the summer of 2009, DJ, my photographer friend in Arkansas, recommended another hot Arkansas model to me, and after some online discussion, Steven came to shoot with me in Missouri…he was what the girls refer to as a total hunk complete with sexy looks and a muscular build and pleasant personality…he also was not shy at all and open to nude work in both print and video work. I initially shot him in my home studio….

In the fall of 2009, I returned to my new  vacation spot on Lake Ouachita, and was joined the first couple of days by Krystin, one of my female models from St Louis, who was in desperate need of a break from working non stop at three different jobs. I had arranged a paid shoot for her the first evening there with one of my photographer friends from that area, who was very impressed with her looks and modeling abilities. After a great shoot with Randy, we had a late supper and rested up watching some television before getting a good nights rest.

We woke the next morning and I photographed her for a bit before we went to get a bite to eat, then drove down to Hot Springs to meet up with Randy, my Hot Springs model, at a gorgeous outdoor garden located on Lake Hamilton, that had some great waterfalls and bridges on the grounds there. It was a location that Joe had pointed out to me two years before when I asked him if he knew of any great waterfalls in the area. I photographed him there in 2007,  and then during the summer of 2008, I had taken some my Mom there to see the beautiful flowers and scenery, so I had a good idea of what I wanted to shoot there with a female model. I had brought along a wedding dress and Krystin graciously offered to wear it for me there, with a bikini underneath it. She also brought along a holie pair of jeans. We walked down to the Joy Moon Bridge and I photographed her in the wedding dress there first, then we shot at the waterfall below the small reflecting lake at the bottom of the hill, where Randy took the initiative and showed Krystin some poses that she could do on a rock on the far side of the lake….

I finished shooting Krystin and then we all went to Colton`s Steakhouse in Hot Springs for lunch…I told Krystin she was welcome to stay as long as she wanted to, but she felt she needed to return to St Louis to start yet another job. She took off for home and Randy decided to come up the next evening and shoot some sunset images with me. Another one of my St Louis models, Kyle, came down that night by train, and stayed with me the rest of my vacation time there. The next day, I had a few models scheduled to show up and shoot with me….the first was Nikki, a young lady accompanied by her husband Taylor. She had come highly recommended to me by DJ, one of my Arkansas photographer friends, and when they showed up later that morning, I was very impressed with both of them, looks and pleasant attitudes, they were def a welll matched set.

We sat and talked a bit, told them I wanted to photograph them both and they were fine with that…..I started with Nikki and explained to them that I was giving another Arkansas model a chance to arrive, before we all loaded up and headed over to a few waterfalls to shoot at. I then photographed her husband Taylor, while she was changing outfits…here he is in fire gear….

Shortly after, Kai, from the Heber Springs area, showed up and we all loaded up and headed to the Mt Ida area to shoot at some waterfalls… Taylor had brought some boardshorts with him and although the temps were a bit cooler than I wanted, down in that deep canyon, they both toughed it out and gave me some great images……

I then photographed Kai at the falls as well, before we ran out of available light…this canyon is much more suited for morning light shoots, so we were working with whatever light was left this time of day….Kai was also a tough guy….with a lean and toned build….

…we left shortly after this…Taylor and Nikki took off for home as soon as we got back to the main highway, while Kai, Kyle and I headed back to the cabin….where I photographed Kai a bit more. Randy met us there and while I was shooting Kai, he and Kyle decided to check out the lake view from the balcony. Kai and I started out in the bedroom when he saw the neat flower arrangement in there…

…then he spotted the mirror in the room by the bed and wanted to show off a bit….he has a great look and build and shows off what he has very well…

…and then he spotted the fire gear and wanted to shoot it as well….what I like about Kai beyond his good looks and toned build, is his ability to move and pose very well while showing off his lines and muscles….
