Whenever I spend time with the work of James Spada, I am always impacted by the richness and texture he manages to capture. Although the models he captures are beautifully modern, through the artist lens, there is an rich and classical feel, a regal elegance that is usually reserved for dignitaries and royalty.
I love that although his images are clear, they are not overly lit which adds the texture in each shot. James incorporate lush fabrics and patterns which surround his subjects adding to sumptuous vibe. James is a master at draping the human body on, and over furniture in both an erotic, distinctly designed way. The men are not just posing for a photographer, they are sending a message to the viewer. With their eyes and with their bodies, they send a clear invitation, and RSVP that is impossible not to respond to.
James Spada's depictions of the lavish and opulent is not restricted to only his imagery. James is a well known internationally best-selling biographer of the rich and famous including; Barbra Streisand, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Redford, John and Caroline Kennedy, Princess Grace, Bette Davis, Peter Lawford, Bette Midler, Jackie Onassis, Julia Roberts, Ronald Reagan, and many others others.

Sumptuous and plush certainly describe Tyler Brown, the subject of this series from SpadaPhoto. Tyler is a multi-sport athlete with a natural physique and an all-American appeal. The 23 year old Southern California model has perfected both the come hither look, and the come hither pose. Tyler indeed has the look of the all-American guy, but behind his sexy grin, and behind those beautiful eyes, a sexy mischievous Tyler side is also keenly present making him even more appealing.
