When I contacted Suntown Photography last month about a new feature, I didn't initially realize I featured the artists images of Jake before. In the first piece I ever did featuring the UK photographers work, The Bare Necessities (2012) there was a hot young guy with short blonde hair featured in images, and on the cover of Suntown's book Lads of the United Kingdom.
As you can tell if you clicked on the link above, the then 19 year old has grown his beautiful blonde hair, as well as the hair on every part of his body. One of Suntown's goals is to shoot men who maintain their natural body hair, and not feel the need to overly manscape. I did a post last year, Furskinwhich focused on this particular theme featuring Suntown's images.
It was in fact Jake's hair, both his body, and his beautiful head of blonde, that had me wanting to feature this set. There is a realness to Suntown's images of Jake, not overly styled, nor overly edited, especially in with the hotel room series of images. What really stands out with Jake's images however is his incredible smile. Jake's sexy grin is both natural and engaging drawing the viewer in as he truly looks like he's having a blast in front the camera.
Suntown agree's he has a 'lovely smile' and Jake is one of the photographers early models he is really glad he kept in touch with. Being a performer and dance enthusiast, the Bournemouth model describes himself as extremely versatile to directing as well as assisting and taking in information.
In addition, with his dance background, Jake has a connection with his body which leads to great movement and a fluidity with pose. Suntown shares that Jake is also one of those models who comes to a shoot with energy and ideas which always makes it both more creative, and a lot more fun! If you want to have even more fun, check out more of Suntown's images of Jake on The Over-Flow.
'He really enjoyed doing the outdoor shots. Especially leaping about. He was able to demonstrate some of the skills he learnt as a dancer. I am looking forward to working with him again.'
San Andreas was an over the top, far fetched action flick that surged into theatres this past summer, but didn't really make that much of an impact. When I saw the film recently, the non stop action, and hot male cast certainly made an impression on me, especially actor Hugo Johnstone-Burt whose work I hadn't known til seeing him the flick.

Aussie actor Hugo Johnstone-Burt has been a fixture on Australian TV in mainstay shows like Sea Patrol, Dance Academy and Home And Away. San Andreas is Hugo's first big film in the US and I am sure it is just the beginning.

Will Yun Lee
I have been enjoying Will Yun Lee's work for years, including a stint a couple of seasons ago in True Blood. Will had quite a summer with not only his role in San Andreas, but also showing up in Melissa McCarthy's Spy.

Johnson is the perfect hero for an action flick, even if most of what he did was not at all humanly possible.
