Camera's on, Pants off

For some Big Brother contestants, when the camera comes on, the pants come off! For some Big Brother fans, this is one of the main reasons to tune in. On this seasons Big Brother Canada, Arlie and Jon (above from a photo shoot out-take) fave viewers many reason to keep tuning in.

This week, the 16th US season began and within a short time after the live feeds were turned on, Hayden (and Joey) both streaked around the house. Thankfully Hayden looks different than his goffy 'Gilligan' themed promotional shots implied. Still.... with out without covering, Cody's backside (last image) is still at the top of my list for watching.

Adam Kaufman: First Encounters of the Close Kind

Actor Adam Kaufman may be best known for his 2002 role in Steven Spielberg science fiction mini-series Taken. I unfortunately never saw that series, but had been taken with Mr. Kaufman back in 1999 when he made his first television appearance on Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

I have been wanting to profile Adam Kaufman since starting the blog, but there were surprisingly very few good images whenever I started to pull together a post. Recently however, with the announcement that Adam is joining Katherine Heigl and Alfre Woodard on NBC's State Of Affairs this fall, I decided to pull what I had and finally give the actor his due.

I am positive I was not the only Buffy viewer who instantly crushed over Adam when he joined Buffy in 1999 as Parker Abrams. His puppy dog eyes, his great face and adorable nose and that beautifully perfect head of hair. Buffy fell hard too,falling into bed with Parker in the season 4 episode Harsh Light Of Day. The episodes title sadly foreshadowed where Parker's character was heading. After a night of sex, Parker turned out to be a bit of a douche and sadly didn't stick around long.  Buffy soon moved on to another hot coed hunk, this time in the form of Riley Finn (Marc Blucas).

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Dawson's Creek

If the WB's Buffy began my crush, the WB's Dawson's Creek cemented it. Kaufman went straight from Buffy to playing Jack's first boyfriend, Ethan on Dawson's Creek.  His first appearance was in December 1999 in the episode, Close Encounters of the Close Kind. Although this relationship was again a short one, Ethan did serve as a mentor and bridge for Jack and featured Jack's first, and I believe the shows first, televised same sex kiss.

After Creek, Kaufman had stints on Without A Trace (with then partner Poppy Montgomery) and a host of other guest spots on television series and tv movies. State Of Affairs however, marks his first return as a regular on series television since 2007. Welcome back Adam!


The Client List

Summer of Samm by Jim Wilkinson Images

'When photographing a male figure, what grabs my attention is usually the model’s eyes, mouth and facial structure. What I try to capture is the model’s "soul": that unique combination of personality, heart and past experiences that makes each flesh and blood man a one-of-a-kind piece of art.'

On Thursday, I profiled the many secondary colors weaved within the work of photographer Jim Wilkinson. Today, I have one primary focus and it is zoomed directly towards Jim's images of the incredible Samm. Jim's images of Samm are beautifully engaging and he perfectly captures so many facets of Samm's personality, and in addition of course, his magnificent body.

Samm has a great look, a killer smile and an energy that lights up in front of Jim's lens. Not only do these images have the viewer physically attracted to Samm, they also bring about an emotional attraction as well. The unique combination of qualities Jim described, personality and heart in particular, have the viewer wanting to get to know the man beyond just what is seen, but also by what is felt. My feelings were confirmed after asking Jim to describe his work with Samm.

'I met Samm several years ago and we discussed a shoot at the time but it didn't work out. I recently reconnected with him and we set up a time to shoot. He's exactly the type of man I love to photograph: Great personality, award winning type smile, dancing eyes and a tight killer body. He literally has one of the top five best asses of anyone I've photographed in the last 15 years. And his front side below the belt is amazing as well.'

'This man has it all. So many times I meet great looking men but they turn out to be dull and so boring. Not so with Samm. He's a fun guy and so likable- which should be apparent to even the most casual observer looking at the images I shot of him. I'm looking forward to many more shoots with this man. He's going to do nothing but get better as he gains experience. And he's the type of man that you'd want for a friend... or more…'.
