Point-n-Shoot: Tristan by TR Pics

Last month I was fortunate to be able to showcase the work of Tom Rubeck from TR Pics ( Sam Devries By TR Pics). In that feature I talked about the respectful and authentic way Tom presents his subjects. Tom talked about being drawn to more 'exotic' looks and that highlighting Masculinity is one of the goals in his work.

I think Australia's Tristan Hamilton might just the perfect example of the exotic masculinity Tom discussed. Tristan began his career in the spotlight at the age of 18 touring Queensland in the model/dance extravaganza Fashion With Flair. Tristan went on to begin a film career at the Academy of Film & Television in Queensland. Tristan has appeared in many short films, television appearances and the Australian version of Temptation Island. In 2008 Tristan wrote and directed the short film 'Daddy's Boy'.

'After initially having a 'promised' budget of $53,000 with a professional cast & crew I had a falling out with my executive producer over artistic clashes. Making films is an art of compromise BUT a filmmaker can only bend over so far, and I'm a top! So not being a quitter, I got my close friends together with false promises of fame & fortune and made this little film on $300! There are only 2 professional actors involved (thnx Murton & Ally!) and the 2 leads, Blaise Macdonald who plays Justin and Iain Abbott who plays Win had never acted before but delivered performances I couldn't have bought.'

'Tristan is a great guy. I had seen him on Model Mayhem, and when I found out I had a trip to Australia for my work, I contacted him about shooting. The shoot itself was very simple... in fact almost embarrassing. I did not have my regular camera equipment and lights with me. Because of some extra things I ended up having to take on the trip with me, I was left to shooting him with my tiny little Canon point-n-shoot. I kept apologizing, and we laughed about it, but it actually turned out okay.'

'We shot in my hotel room in Melbourne. Because I didn't have any professional lighting with me, I unscrewed some of the lamp shades off the lamps, and made do. The whole shoot lasted only about an hour. He has a great sense of himself, and knows how to work the camera. One of the things I loved was that despite his great looks and incredibly toned body, he has this wonderfully buoyant personality. The images we created are very smoldering, and they have this raw edge to them. That is in part, of course to this man's physique, but also due to the graininess of the camera and the low-light setting. Although I wouldn't choose to use this camera with a model again, I do like the feel and mood these images have.'

Thanks to Tom for again sharing his work with FH! Check out more of TR Pics on ModelMayhem HERE:
