I had a great opportunity to visit with one of my original models from nearly thirty years ago when I spent the night in Springfield a few weeks ago on a buying trip…Aaron came by after work and went to supper with me, then let me photograph him once again…he is as sexy and sweet as he was when I first found him back then.
Thanks again Aaron….
A week after initially shooting with Zane, he told me that he could return and would be bringing a friend, another guy from KC that I had been talking to about modeling, about the same time I had been talking to Zane…luckily for me they are good friends and were coming down together. One of my photographer friends joined me and we traded them back and forth on shoots…unfortunately for me, I suffered a computer loss of many images a two weeks later, right before Christmas, and lost all but a few of their images from that shoot. Here are some of Stephen, a farmboy from northwest Missouri near KC….
…he turned out to be quite a flirt in front of my camera with a very flirty look and super smile too…
…I really enjoyed shooting Stephen first, since I had worked with Zane before, so I let Brad shoot him first…and in no time at all, it seemed we were switching models…after working with Zane before, I had some specific ideas I wanted to shoot him with the Christmas tree again…I had moved it to a different location in my house as well, one with more room to maneuver the models around it…this time I had Zane wrap himself up like a present under the tree….
…and among the ornaments with his favorite teddy bear, under the tree as well….
as well as a few elsewhere in the house…these again, are the only ones I have left of that shoot, which I do plan to re-shoot as soon as Zanes schedule permits….
wrapping up with that sexy smile and smiling eyes….thanks again Zane, look forward to the next shoot…
Some time back in the fall of 2016, I came across a good looking young man on FB who lived in the KC area and was a ballet dancer and a go go dancer as well, he had strikingly good looks and a muscular build, was featured on a photographer`s page in that area and then I noticed that he had also done some fashion work with a photographer in St Louis that I know of, so I contacted the St Louis photographer to see if he could put me in touch with the KC dancer/model. A few months went by and I contacted the St Louis photographer again, he had sent him an email but had not heard back from the KC dancer/model he said, and had gotten busy in the meantime. He did provide me with his profile name and I sent him an email thru FB as well. I also noticed that he knew Jeff, one of my former models, who also is from KC and lives there still, so I contacted Jeff and asked if he could reach out to this dancer/model for me. Within a week, I heard from the dancer/model, found out his name is Zane and he was very interested in some additional modeling work, so we set a date and time for him to come down and shoot with me right before Christmas. He brought some of his dance outfits as well as a ballet outfit and I started him on the couch next to my Christmas tree first…
…and I remember within the first fifteen to twenty images that I shot of Zane, that he was like a very sexy gazelle the way he moved and quite a flirt with a gorgeous smile and smokin hot build on him…he had dyed his hair blonde and it looked fantastic on him as well !! It was obvious that he had some good experience in modeling due to the way he took the initial pose and transformed it into a few different variations as he glided from one to the next, looking like art in motion right in front of me…a pleasure to observe and to photograph….
…was I lying ??? this boy is hott and sexy all rolled into one, as well as a very nice personality…and from here, he only got better…in the Santa`s helper suit….helping me decorate my new tree….
…and besides his sexy smile, he also has a very sexy innocent look too…
…and have you ever seen such a flexible Santa Helper ??
One thing is for sure, I know who to call when I need live art to go with my Christmas tree next year….or who to contact to come decorate it….thanks for shooting with me Zane…Merry Christmas everyone !!
While I was down at Hot Springs during my fall vacation, I had the opportunity to revisit with Clint and shoot him once again…needless to say, he is aging like a fine wine….
…really enjoyed working with him once again, loved his new hair style too…thanks again Clint…lets not wait so long the next time, okay ?
Right before I arrived in Arkansas for my fall vacation earlier this year, I discovered that Jon, one of the models I photographed in July down there, had a brother named Josh, that was now modeling as well, so I contacted Josh and arranged to shoot with him the day after I photographed his brother Jon. I photographed him inside first and then we went to a beautiful waterfall nearby, where again, I normally find great color in the fall, however this year, it was apparent that good color was going to be rare and hard to find. We made do pretty good tho, and it turned out that Josh and Jon were identical twins in many ways…another pleasant surprise for me….
…like Jon, Josh has a very sexy muscular build and loves to show it off…I was able to shoot some nice window light of him that showed off his lines very nicely…
…then we went to the waterfall and shot some images there….despite the lack of color, it was still quite pretty there….
While down in Arkansas on my annual fall vacation, I had the opportunity to photograph a few guys once again. I had the pleasure of working with a new model back in July, Jon from the Little Rock area, and I had told him I wanted to work with him again in the fall with the normally beautiful fall foliage in southern Arkansas. However this year, the color was nowhere to be found in that area, certainly not at any of the normal places that I shoot at outside…so when Jon showed up, we opted to just stay inside and shoot…we started out with some art nude images…
…after shooting inside, we decided to drive over to an old mill to see if there was any color over there…I had not been to that side of town yet, so had no idea if there might be color there or not. I had photographed it a few years back and discovered the whole hillside behind it is usually lit up by several small maples…however we arrived to find all the trees barren of any leaves whatsoever, so we decided to try the inside of the building…a bit dirty inside but pretty neat at the same time…..since it was a very dirty floor, Jon decided to keep his socks on at the very least…I dont blame him a bit…
and then we went outside the building to shoot ….
…where there is a giant waterwheel next to a creek…as it turned out, in the background up on the hill there actually was some color and we were able to get some nice reflections in the water…the first few photos have a painterly look to them, which unfortunately washed out his skin tones a bit….
…Jon, once again, I enjoyed working with you and really look forward to the next time, hopefully next spring….maybe the dogwoods will be in bloom this time around. 🙂
The first week of November I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Kurt Wild, asking if he could come shoot with me once again. Some of you recall that I was able to help him get his start several years ago in video work, at his request, and he was looking to return to some modeling work in a more limited role this time around, hoping to supplement his regular work income. I dont blame him a bit wanting to help his family out, as this recession continues to drag out and take its toll on everyone and everything…I cannot remember a recession lasting this long ever. Kurt and I have stayed in contact over the years and remained good friends, and he reinforced that strong bond while he was here visiting and shooting with me. I sincerely believe that over the years, this young man has only gotten better looking with age and has maintained his youthful build as well..we started as always, in the barn…
..one thing is definitely for sure…Kurt still knows how to flirt…
…and he still knows what all to show off on his sexy body….
….and how to move well to accomplish it….
…and then I asked him to do some art nude work for me….
….and then I got to see him in Super Flirt Mode…..
Like always, Kurt was great to work with once again and I look forward to the next time. Thanks for coming back to work with me again, Kurt !!
While waiting to hear back from Dakota on when he could come back for a second shoot the next day, I heard from a guy that I met at a local gas station back in May…I had emailed him on his FB page and he was just now seeing the message, and was def interested in doing some modeling for me, having done some earlier in the year for a friend of his and a few years back for others as well. He was able to come out and shoot with me that day so we set a time and soon enough he was here interviewing with me, and Dakota arrived shortly afterward. While Dakota waiting upstairs for me in my office, I photographed Marc in the barn set. He has a tall drink of water look and sexy lean and toned build as well as a great range of expressions from a serious sultry look to a beautiful smile….
..Jesse definitely had some good modeling background and experience, and was alot of fun to work with….
…and soon found out he was very well blessed not only with good looks and personality but endowed well too….
…soon after shooting in the barn, we joined Dakota upstairs and shot some windowlight of Jesse….
I also shot some test shots of Jesse in a Gladiator Costume….here is one of the hotter ones…
Very hott guy to work with, look forward to our next session Jesse !!
At the end of October, a hot young lad from central Arkansas drove up to interview with me, after we talked online a week before about modeling work…he wanted to get into nude print work and asked me to help him put a portfolio together. He was quite mature for his young age and I agreed to help him out…it worked out well for him as he was able to visit some family nearby as well. I started him out on the leather couch….
…and within just a few minutes I discovered that I had a blonde haired, green eyed flirt on my couch….one with a very sweet personality and mature mind….showing me his sexy side, his erotic side, and his artistic – flirty side….
…and I shot a few in the barn before we ventured outside to a private location with some gorgeous color in the leaves and trees still….
…and then I pulled off some special effects on the next few images of Dakota….
Enjoyed working with ya Dakota !!
