The Boys of Bridgend by Russell Hughes
As August flies by, the smell of fall is already faintly in the air, especially in the early morning. Autumn means a change of color, falling leaves, Thanksgiving and Halloween. And although the temperatures may be cooling off, the calendar season is heating up with the onlaught of naked hunky men waiting to spend the next 12 months with you.
One of the newest entries into the Calendar cartel is The Boys of Bridgend from photographer Russell Hughes. The South Wales photographer recently put together 12 naked guys to raise money for the Everyman appeal to help fight testicular and prostate cancer.
The models that Russell chose to shoot, fit perfectly with the both the theme, and the Everyman charity. The men are not professional models, but tradesmen, builders and citizens Russell found searching Bridgend County, South Wales. I especially love that Russell shot them outside, showing off the beautiful country locations which make perfect surroundings for those Boys of Bridgend.
The goal is to raise £10,000 for the charity through sales and the calendars are ready for shipping worldwide! Copies can be purchased either through the facebook page HERE: or by going direct to our on-line store HERE:
