Illinois Chris Travels to Missouri

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…. 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….





New Model Chris from Illinois

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.
