1st shoot: Greg was just 18. He arrived with 2 pair of low-rise pants, and a couple of T-shirts, and that was it. The clothes hardly entered into the shoot anyway =)
2nd shoot: A duo shoot with CJ joining Greg at an old industrial complex for some adventures. They hit it off as soon as they met, talking about music, cars, school... For me, the day was a bit like chasing two puppies around while they played - hard to keep up with, but a whole lot of fun!
3rd shoot: Late summer found Greg and I enjoying a day out in nature, hiking and swimming and savoring the day.
(I first printed "Greg" in 2007, shortly after these photos were shot. At the time he was known by the moniker "Baby Blue" and was quickly gaining a name for himself. Over the years I have re-edited the photos a couple of times, but always resisted issuing an eBook until this time. Greg, with his toned physique, blond hair, and baby blue eyes has always been one of my most popular models! This eBook replaced the older print edition and includes new images! The book includes full frontal nudity.
Photography is my art, and one branch of that art is working with the male physique. The shapes, contours, tones, and textures. A sculptural element. How light plays across a muscle, or reflects in the hair. A glint in the eye. A playful moment. How the figure relates to, or contrasts with, the surroundings. The mimicking of shapes. The strength of man mirrored in the environment - the relationships that are captured. A moment in time. A sexy moment in time... I've been lucky... my work has captured some attention recently. There have been a couple of exhibits, inclusion is several anthology photography books, and even a few Magazine covers. Don't get me wrong - I love that attention, but it's not why I create. I create for me, and for the models. I create to push myself - to think about things differently, to see things in a new light. And now I am creating for you - I hope you enjoy this look into my world! -Mark
