I hosted a photo shoot for photographer friends last week and invited a few models as well…one photographer friend was able to make it down for the shoot and two models showed up as well…one was new model Nick Turner, who I had photographed a few days before for the first time, and Aaron, one of my models who I helped get started fifteen years ago, and now resides in Missouri. Aaron arrived at my house first, looking as hott and sexy as he did fifteen years ago, tall with a slim toned build and great personality as well, sporting a little more ink these days. Here are a couple of his photos from the early days at the age of 18 when he first came to work with me….
…and here is how he looks now….
I was able to take these few images of him before my photographer friend Brad showed up to start working with him on the front porch…while I waited for Nick to show up, which was soon after I took a water break. This was my first shoot with Nick, after interviewing him a few weeks before, and I have to say now, that I was very impressed with this shoot…Nick is not only a natural looker but a natural talent and model, he has a sexy look and a hott slim, yet tightly toned build too…easy on the eyes and great attitude and personality…he almost reads my mind when it comes to posing, while I was able to teach him a few things about posing, he had enough experience to know how to move fluidly too. I started him off in the tack room of the horse barn….
and it was about now that Brad finished shooting with Aaron and had to head home, so after taking a short water break again…..
Aaron joined Nick and I out in the field with Sammi, one of the horses that my good friend has on the farm….Aaron holding on to Sammi while Nick started out….and then they switched places with Nick holding the halter rope while Aaron posed on Sammi`s back…
…all in all it was a great shoot with both of these hott guys….and as usual Sammi looked great too…soon after a dip in the pool to cool off both of these guys, and a big thank you to our host, we vamoosed out of there as we could see storm clouds approaching. I took a few more images of Nick at the house and then as soon as the storm rolled on through, we headed out to eat supper as both Aaron and Nick had not had anything to eat most of the day.
I told you what a good model Chris would become back in the original story on him, open to traveling down to Arkansas to shoot with me and at the end of July, he traveled up here to shoot with me and some photographer friends as well….at least that was the way the shoot was set up…for a couple of other photographers to join in and shoot Chris and a couple of other models…except that Chris was the only model to show up and only one of my photographer friends showed up to join us…I let Matt work with him first for the first couple of hours…and then I joined in and Matt watched me work him thru the hoops…Chris is a natural model and handles the hoops just fine. Matt stuck around to watch me work and pick up some posing tips….I started Chris off in the cellar steps in holie jeans….
…and then we moved to the neat little stone building on the property, that has some beautiful lighting inside….
…and then on to the tack room in the horse barn…it was getting very warm outside by then and Chris started working up a natural sheen of sweat inside the tack room, which can get quite warm on its own….not only did I dress him up as a sexy ranch hand but I saddled him down as well…with naturally, a saddle…..
…we didn`t stick around a whole lot longer after the barn photos, except to let Chris cool down in the pool before we headed out. Can`t wait to work with Chris again….
I met Chris online about a week out from one of my Kentucky trips and he agreed to come down and test shoot with me while I was down there one evening. He turned out to be a hot looking Clark Kent type guy…I halfway expected him to come out of his shirt with a cape underneath when he showed up at my door that evening…very sexy innocent look and nicely toned build. Little did I know then, what a great model he would turn out to be….here are some of his images from the sunset shoot that evening….
…we then went back to the hotel as the sun was dropping even lower and shot a few inside before some friends of mine showed up and we headed over to the steakhouse for supper. I told him I would be in Arkansas the following weekend for the 4th of July and told him about the scenery down there including the waterfalls and he told me he would love to drive down there and shoot with me, and he did just that….arriving at the condo in Hot Springs shortly after I did. I shot a few images of him with the evening windowlight there first….
…before we ran out of light, and then after contacting one of my models who resides in Hot Springs to meet us for supper, we headed to Colton`s Steakhouse…I forgot to take my tripod with me…there was going to be a fireworks show at the Oaklawn Horse Track at dark and I wanted to shoot some photos of the fireworks from near Colton`s….as it turned out, I was still able to do so even without the tripod….Jerry joined us for supper a little late, we were eating at the bar as the restaurant was very packed inside. Jerry suggested shooting the fireworks from the Kroger lot so we drove over there, a few blocks away, and found a few hundred others there as well.
The next morning we drove over to one of the waterfalls I like to shoot at and found it to be a raging torrent of water through the narrow canyon there, mainly due to nine inches of rainfall upstream from there the night before…plus that area had received a few inches of rain before I even arrived the day before…I told Chris I had never seen the water that wide…I had seen it up a few feet but not nearly as wide across as it was stretched that morning….Jerry was going to meet us there but apparently overslept or forgot…we managed to get some good images despite the flood levels….
…all in all a great session at the waterfall….despite the higher water levels there, the water still looked great and so did Chris !! Unfortunately he had to leave that evening, missing out on a spectacular fireworks show at Mtn Harbor Resort, which Jerry also slept through and missed too. The next day I photographed yet another new model, stay tuned for that story.
