John's reference to a 'soulful quality' is apropo as it is something I have consistently found radiates from John's imagery. The Michigan photographer blends vidid lighting, dark and shadow, pose and reflection to create stark and powerful images of the male form.
'I got really busy with commercial photography this year and didn't have much time to pursue nude photography. But when I saw Logan's profile on Model Mayhem I knew I wanted to shoot with him. He had done both adult work and traditional modeling and was obviously comfortable in front of the camera. His body is natural but defined, and he had gorgeous chiselled features.'
With model Logan Stone, the soulfulness visibly originates from his beautiful sad eyes. John keeps Logan's eyes and face central to many of the images but expands upon the theme with his lighting, mirrors and the unique, and poses which while although remain erotically artistic, also tease and beautifully push limits.
'For the mirror shots I softened the light which is unusual for male nudes. His touching expressions, the slight parting of his lips, and the beauty of his naked body really reminded me that I'm photographing a whole person, not just a model who poses on demand.'
Logan says that he truly loves to model, especially the creative process of bringing an artists vision to life. This was certainly accomplished in his work with JGH Photography. John shares that Logan was not only extremely reliable and great to work with, but highly professional. John is already looking forward to their next shoot. 'Any photographers out there who are looking for models, I really recommend Logan!'
Every October, I focus on the hunks of horror as FH counts down to October 31st. This year, as a tribute to horror legend Wes Craven, I will be featuring some of the many men who were sliced, diced, dismembered and decapitated in Craven's films.
I have had a few issues with some of Craven's films, especially his support of so many sub-par sequels, I can't think of any other writer/director in the genre who had me as frequently heading to the theatre during my teens, twenties and thirties to be frightened. Thanks, as they say, for the nightmares!
Robert Rusler & Mark Patton Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy's Revenge (1985)
Although Depp's stomach baring crop top got a lot of attention, it was actor Jus Garcia that caught my eye when recently re-viewing the original Nightmare on Elm Street. In the first quarter of the movie, Garcia has a bloody tighty whitie scene getting tossed across the room in the films first big kill scene.

Nightmare on Elm Street was Garcia's first big role on the big screen and began a long string of movie and television roles which continue today. Garcia appeared on film in movies which include; Wildcats, Slaves of New York, We Were Soldiers, Along Came Polly and 1994's New Nightmare. On television, Jsu was scene on Miami Vice, Murder She Wrote, Murder One, JAG and as Jo's husband on The Facts Of Life.
