Man of Steel: Brandon Connelly by Bryan Nevin Media

Whether on screen or within the pages of a DC comic, Superman is generally depicted with jet black hair. If however, they ever decided to take a risk and cast the man of steel as a redhead, model Brandon Connelly looks every inch the part from his strong jaw to firm body ready to take charge. Readers of FH know Brandon is a favorite model of mine to feature (see previous posts HERE:) and I love this new series from photographer Bryan Nevin.

In this series, our Clark Kent looks right at home in his Metropolis Penthouse, looking over the city he has vowed to protect. As the sunlit day moves on to dusk, the city is quiet, giving our Clark the opportunity to relax and enjoy the peace and solitude.

Photographer Bryan Nevin says that he is not your average photographer. Bored quickly with what he calls the ordinary and plain, Bryan is picky about who he he works with and what he shoots. Bryan's goal is to work only with those that inspire him, not only to produce stunning imagery, but also to inspire him to be the best he can be. It makes sense then, that when shooting Brandon Connelly, the set up would be big.

I am not sure if it was intentional, but by slipping on that Superman t-shirt, and then, by slipping out of it, Brandon transformed seamlessly into a man, faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! The location, with those incredible windows with the amazing natural light Bryan pulls in, not to mention the fluffy clouds and rich blue sky, compliment the theme beautifully.

'Our collaboration was great! Brandon was super easy to work with. He has great features that the camera loves and he's versatile in terms of what looks he can pull off.'
