Until The Very End: Ryan by PPlanet Photography

'You'll stay with me?'

Until the very end,' said James.'

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

FH was fortunate to be able to celebrate Labor Day with PPLanet Photography's imagery of the ultra hot and hard, (working) Josh Cook. (Heavy Machinery) In the last section of images PPLanet Photography's Preston Woods sent on, Josh was sharing the work load with another model, the equally engaging Ryan. The blue eyed blonde that had me of course asking (bugging) Preston for a little more about him.

Preston actually opened the door to modeling for Ryan and was the first photographer to shoot him. Ryan's inexperience is definitely not evident within his work with Preston. Ryan appears right at home in front of Preston's lens and whether sweaty and dirty on the construction site, hanging out at home in his orange briefs or hanging out by the pool, Ryan literally oooze masculinity, sexuality and personality behind Preston's lens.

Preston shares that he really enjoyed working with Ryan and guiding him into the world of modeling. Since their first shoot they have worked together steadily and it is gratifying for Preston to see that other photographers are now reaching out to get Ryan into their studios and in front of their cameras.

Until The Very End are the words on Ryan's upper left arm tattoo. It is both comforting and powerful to think of someone committed to staying with you until the very end. Although I don't know for sure why Ryan chose those particular words, for many they are closely associated with a scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The words are said to Harry as he's walking to his death. They are also used in the books dedication, thought by many as a thank you to the many readers who had stuck with Harry, and all of the characters she created, until the very end of the series.
