Yohann Duval by Pierre Simard

Last December I profiled Montreal's Yohann Duval (A Motivating Force: Yohann Duval) In that feature Yohann recounted his early struggles and the factors which motivated him to focus on his health, his body and modeling.

Yohann met Montreal based photographer Pierre Simard through Model Mayhem and quckly fell in love with his work. Yohann was looking to take a risk, explore something far out of his comfort zone. He also wanted some edgier images to add to his portfolio, something a bit tougher using a bit of leather and a lot of attitude. Pierre was on board after their first contact and jumped right into it.

'I borrowed a few things from friends and got inspired by my recent trip to the San Francisco Folsom street Fair.'

I love the results of Yohann's collaboration with Pierre. Yohann obviously has the perfect body to display leather and I love the contrast with his face and soulful eyes. Through Yohann's eyes you know no matter how big the risk, the results will be incredible and you will always be in safe hands.
