Just Because: OWN

I don't know about you but although I have not watched 1 second of Oprah Winfrey's new channel already annoys the shit out of me. Oprah's pronunciation of the word OWN and the never ending slew of commercials already have me sick of it.

No matter how nice Dr. Oz may be, I have not forgotten Oprah inflicted Dr. Phil on the world. It boggles me that Oprah is airing countless talk and reality type shows and claiming to be creating programming for the soul.

Thumbs Down....

Thumbs down doesn't really cut it,

If anyone really needed another reason to start the New Year by dumping any piece of music from Chris Brown his recent homophobic comments on twitter might be do the trick...

The Face: Terrel Fraser

It is of course a given that being fit, working out and keeping your body in top form is essential in the modeling world. One factor that models have less control over yet is most important is their face. Not just how it looks but what it expresses. 25 year old Terrel Fraser describes himself as a 'fresh new face in the industry' with a face uniquely beautiful and expressive with features brought together from his Italian German and African American heritage. Terrel's gorgeous brown eyes express a sexiness and humanity which bring something special to each of his images.

New to the industry, I was impressed with the quality of work Terrel has already put together for his portfolio. Terrel has worked with some of my favorite photographers and many of whom I have profiled on FH. Here is a look at some of my favorite shots from Terrel's port.

First three shots by Guillermo Real.

'Guillermo is La based now and a fairly new photog, talented he's studied it for many years. We had a great beach shoot where he did it all, styling, lighting as well as taking the shots directed. Very talented!'

Next three shots by JS2D Design.

'JS2D Design, Jake Sorrentno , great guy, close friend and has been in the biz for over 20 years as a designer as well as photog. Schooled me on basically everything I know about posing, modeling and everything about the industry.'

Portrait Below by TARRICE LOVE:

'Great photog and very very underrated! He doesn't get the notoriety he deserves yet, but make no mistake he is talented! Also does it all; style, shoots, everything to get a great image and funny as hell lol'

Four beautiful shots below by Tony Veloz.

'Tony Veloz is super talented DC based photog and draws from his extensive experience in shooting woman and somehow translates it and applies it to men yet still keeps it masculine. Love his work and also looking forward to working more with him'

Below: What I think has become Terrel's signature shot, the great image below by one of my favorite photographers, David Arnot.

'David Arnot is an all around pro it was a great shoot! I am looking forward to working with him again.'
