The Sexuality Surface: Rob by Chris A Freeman
I love it when a sexy guy wears his ball cap backwards, and if that guy just happens to be pretty much naked, the effect is even hotter. 25 year old model Rob has an clear, nothing to hide and raw sexuality that you couldn't hide even if you tried. Not that anyone would want to. Rob's big brown eyes, lips his lean fit body photograph beautifully, especially in the skilled hands of photographer Chris A. Freeman.
I have featuring Illinois artist's imagery for close to three years and Chris always delivers images that beautifully peel away, both literally and emotionally, the layers which shield the natural sexual energy of the men and women he shoots. At 5' 6", Rob is aware that it is important to focus on his body with a strict gym regimen and be willing to show some skin and focus on creative and edgy imagery. As naturally sexy as Rob appears in these images, Chris shares it was the creative process that helped bring them to the surface.
Rob contacted Chris this past February through Model Mayhem. Chris says he was eager to gain experience and build his portfolio. Upon seeing the images in his port, Chris knew instantly he had the physical features the camera would love, but struggled to see how sensuous and enticing he could be during a shoot. Rob was eager to bring this out in images, and was looking to create some hot images for a future calendar project he wanted to put together as a gift for someone special.
'When he arrived at the apartment we were shooting in, he was initially a little reserved, but soon warmed up to the idea of divulging everything and responded nicely to my direction, while contributing many ideas of his own. The naturalistic setting of the apartment with the midday lighting from the many windows worked well for us.'
As they got into the shoot, Chris reports Rob's inhibitions disappeared and he turned out many subtle, but refined facial expressions to go along with his very sexy poses. When he and Rob sat down to take a look at the first set of images, both were very pleased with what they had produced in a very short period of time. Since their shoot, Rob seems to have moved from modeling and is pursuing a career in the business world. Fortunately, for the world of those who admire the male form, we are lucky to have these moments of nakedness and sensuality captured prior to his disappearance into Chicago landscape and the world of dark socks, ties and business suits.
