You're So Vein: Carlos by Greg Lindeblom
'It was one of those rare collaborations where we just let the mood and movement set the tone for the shoot.'
Florida photographer Greg Lindeblom is without a doubt, a connoisseur at capturing the male form. Each time I feature Greg's imagery, I am always visually impressed at Greg's skill and creativity in capturing the best moments and poses to spotlight his models.
In this series of images of Carlos, Greg uses a minimal set, classic male poses and angles to create images of artistry and sculpture. Almost every image of Carlos, and his rock hard physique, could beautifully be morphed into a rock hard stature or sculpture.
When I first saw Greg's images of Carlos, I didn't initially remember I had featured him once before. (Realization) Carlos' hair is a bit different, but he has also been clearly working out, sculpting every inch of his incredible body. Every muscle is tight, and Carlos' vein's, especially the ones running down his lower stomach and legs, beautifully highlight his dedication.
'I had the great pleasure of working with Carlos during his recent trip to Miami. He is a Venezuelan by birth, but has lived in the Netherlands for many years and is now a Dutch citizen. It was his first time in the area and he fell in love with the Miami vibe and environment.'
'Those good feelings definitely flowed over to our shoot. He was a dream to work with. Carlos is an experienced model who knows how to pose and move. His dance background was evident in our shoot. It was one of those rare collaborations where we just let the mood and movement set the tone for the shoot. I'm looking forward to working the Carlos again and am delighted that he is so eager to come back to south Florida.'
