Soon after starting to shoot , Roman had to decide whether to take it all off for the camera. With his main motivation to model being financially based, the decision was an easy one. Roman shares he didn't feel any pressure to shoot nude, but knew that if he didn't, he wouldn't be capitalising on all of the jobs and opportunities that might be available to him. So far, Roman shares his experience has been mostly positive, well except maybe for the time he was climbing up a tall tree, completely naked as the photographer clicked away.
If there was one situation shooting naked was a little stressful, it wasn't about being nude in front of the camera, it was more about who else was naked beside him. Roman's most stressful shoot also ended up being one of his favorites. It was a commercial shoot for a nude couples resort. Roman says it was a little difficult at the beginning, but the other model was such a pro, he soon felt more relaxed and loved that they ended up getting some great photos.
'I had never done such nude photo session before, with a female model, so my was adrenaline was flowing. My female partner was very beautiful and naked almost all the time. So.... I had to be to work hard to be very "professional"...)'
Some of my favorite shots of Roman are from New York photographer Rawle B. I have featured Rawle's work on FH Before and love how he photographs the male form and the sensuality he brings out in his models. This sensuality is certainly beautifully intense with Rawle's images of Roman on the bed. I love the mood set and Roman's beautifully sexy poses.
In addition to a paycheck, Roman says he also loves the opportunity to express himself emotionally through his work. This was certainly evident in this set of images. Roman also noted he loves that modeling, and the images captured help to capture certain periods and moments in his in his life.
When I asked what parts of his body get the most compliments, Roman responded that he often gets compliments about his arms, chest and butt. II would also add his beautiful dark eyes, but won't come as a surprise to many, that Roman's butt certainly captured my attention. I thank the photographers, and Roman of course, for sharing these particular moments in time.
