A few months ago, I was contacted by a young man who was getting into fashion modeling and needed some assistance with glamour modeling work…he didn`t have much experience in front of the camera and needed to work with a photographer or two to gain some experience. Coincidentally, I had checked out his profile a week before, saw that he was in the Rolla area, not too far from me and had a good look and build. He was also very tall and did have a good look and the height requirement for fashion, so I figured he would prob do well in that area. He asked if he could come and shoot with me so that he could gain some experience working with me since I had alot of shooting experience. I agreed to help him out and we set a date for an afternoon soon after, on a nice sunny day…he showed up at my door ready and rarin to go…he had a sexy Latino look to him and a very nicely toned build, hails from Oklahoma and intended to go to college but then came across an opportunity in fashion modeling that he just couldn`t pass up, and I can`t say that I blame him…..school can always wait, there are no time limits on schooling, but there are in modeling work. I originally intended to shoot some of him in house, but decided we could shoot indoor shots at the farm as well as outside, so I texted Mike and Andy to say we were on the way and took off. It was a beautiful day to shoot, blue skies with a few clouds and just perfect temps…we started in one of the haybarns soon after arriving….
…being from Oklahoma, he had his own hat and jeans and boots…nothing I had would have fit him anyway due to his hgt….
…we moved inside the barn and eventually the hat left him….
…and then we tried the shadowlight as well…
…we then walked down to the horse barn and started in the tack room…boy was it hot in there…and in no time at all, Brandon was covered in a fine sheen of sweat….
…we then moved out into the horse stalls and breezeway, since it was sooooo hott inside the tack room walls…I needed some air as well, lol….
…as you can see, he looks quite sexy with a saddle….and looks equally hott in jeans only….
…and while next to the stalls, one of the residents decided to come over and check him out…up close….
…I then spotted some strong sunlight at the other end of the barn so we sauntered down there and shot some beautiful sunlight illuminated cowboy images….
…I then had him switch to a lighter pair of jeans and to another hat as well….
and we popped back inside the tack room to return the bridles….
..before heading over the larger haybarn….
…and then we went up to the farmhouse porch and shot some underwear images….first in the bamboo forest….
…then on the porch….
…and finally back to the pool to cool off some….
…and then he switched from the flag shorts to some pretty pink board shorts….
…and then I let him get wet…..
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Brandon, he has a great attitude and is easy on the eyes, he should go far in modeling work and I wish him all the best.
