Seeing Red: TIM



'Of all the hair colors, redheads may get the most second glances. Not because they’re the most uncommon hair color (natural blondes have that distinction), but because their hair color is so visually stunning. A redhead will always stand out in a crowd of people. Unfortunately, redheads often have to endure a barrage of comments about their fiery tempers and their freckles which if tolerated long enough could result in an outburst that confirms that age old stereotype about red hair and temper.'



I think we all can remember back in Jr. High or High School the cute guy with the fuzzy red hair and the cute body. Many times this guy is the 'funny guy', the 'basketball player' or the 'the theatre nerd'. It is also funny to me how many of these guys you end up seeing a few years after graduation that have cut their hair, maybe lightened it a bit. You now see the guy, once labeled due to his looks, now in a totally different light.

Kids with brown, light blond or dark hair are usually viewed by others in terms of face, body and personality. Many kids with red/orange hair,especially dark red or orange are often seen by peers as a product of their hair instead of who they actually are. For some reason it has been my experience that these kids often become the most successful adults. Whether it be academics or the arts they often feel they need their work to speak louder than those around them in order to be seen beyond the pigment of their follicles.

I have always had a particular interest in people with red hair. As stated above I have always found my friends with red hair often have deeper and more clearly defined personalities and a keen sense of self. It is through my own lens that when I ran into some shots of Tim I instantly stopped in my tracks. Beautiful blue eyes, great smile and a killer body was only the beginning. Tim is simply an artist. Whether it be through modelling, painting or photography, Tim likes to experiment with his work letting the creative juices between himself and whomever he is collaborating with take them to new and interesting places.

"As a model I got to work with a lot of different artists and I've definitely learned from them and started working on my own artwork. I've done almost every aspect of modeling from runway to experimental films and now I am mostly doing figure modeling for art classrooms this semester and it is the most rewarding type of modeling, I feel like a muse and its interesting to see what aspects people decide to pick up on as they photograph, paint, draw, or sculpt me."

I believe the trust Tim shows in those who create art via his image demonstrates the strong sense of self I described earlier. Tim's focus is not so much about how he looks, but instead, what creativity he is able to inspire with his work. A feature of a true artist.

TIM by Zedneram Imagery



I have posted on the work of photographer (and model) Desi Hyter from Zedneram Imagery several times over the past several months. When beginning to describe his work with Tim I am not sure I could say it any better than I did when I wrote about his work with S-Gon this past August:

I have loved the work of Zedneram Imagery for awhile now. Many of you might know Zednerman from his work with Peter Le. Zednerman has taken many of Peter's most posted shots.

'Our society bases popularity on a specific look, a certain body type, an outward manifestation of social class, or the expression of a particular attitude. Zedneram strives to surpass conditional definitions of tolerance and searches for the true essence of unconditional acceptance.'

Zednerman imagery's mandate is to create artistic and powerful images of people of all colors. When researching Zednerman's work, it was the word 'powerful' which I most felt when viewing photo after photo. No matter what the model looked like, no matter how tall, how thin, how confident, Zednerman was able to capture them strong and in control. Even when completely naked, the men and women in front of Zednerman's lens were never vulnerable, they were always completely in control.



I love Zedneram's shots of Tim, soft, beautiful, classic. Desi says that Tim is an AMAZING model, unique, interesting and very professional. 'Tim has great energy and was very open to many concepts and ideas. Great model and would work with him again.'

Thanks to Desi for sharing his work with Tim with FH!

Last Nights GLEE



Last nights Duets episode of GLEE was the best episode in a long time. Although a couple of the cast was MIA (Puck & Sue) the rest of the cast all got a chance to shine. This is the GLEE most of us fell in love with. Great character development, great music (from Broadway to Motown to Pop) the entire cast was able to shine. My favorite duets were Santana and Mercedes and Tina and Mike. (Harry Shum Jr!!!).

Having Chord Overstreet shirtless was icing on the cake! Thanks to Superherofan for these great caps!
