Bonne Année!


Creative impulses are a fascinating thing. With FH in it's 9th year, my compulsion to continue ebbs and flows each month, and in some cases, each day. But then... I see an image, I discover a new model, I find a photographer or artist whose imagery grabs my attention, and I am again excited to showcase the work.

I always love getting e-mails from artists, especially those artists that consistently contribute to the blog. Seeing that little attachment symbol, and knowing I am about to see new work, propels me to continue, even when I may not be feeling that inspired. Art rejuvenates, and I hope FH has provided you a little rejuvenation, inspiration and tons of stimulation over the last 12 months. A huge thank you as always, to all those who contribute images, art and stories, and have me looking forward to seeing what you're going to do next!

I have always enjoyed balloon imagery, maybe more than balloons themselves. When I was searching for some images for New Years, I came upon the work Ohio photographer DCurtis. DCurtis is also fascinated the balloon concept, and plans to focus more on the theme in the future. The black light images also have shades of New Year fireworks and streamers. I look forward to fearuting more work from Douglas in 2016. For now, here are three of my favorite images, one from the balloon series and two from the black light set to celebrate the New Year.

Muscles & Mountains: Rob

First five images by Gordon Nebeker

'One thing that made working with these particular models joyful, was that they contributed many of the poses. Some of the best ideas came from the models who could be like enthusiastic puppies with a new toy.'

As 2015 comes to an end, so sadly does the Muscles & Mountains series. I thought ending with Rob was a great way to end the series. Rob is the only model of the three that I have not featured, and thought he deserved a bit of extra attention. Not only is Rob incredibly sexy, he also creates such beautiful poses and lines and acts as a anchor of strength in so many images from the series.

Rob had a successful modeling career in New York for many years, but has since settled into a full time job outside of the industry. Today, Rob models mostly for fun when he has time off from work. When opportunities come up, especially like whirlwind trips to Utah to shoot with Gordon, Mike and Mark, Rob loves to jump back in the game. The entire group gathered to celebrated Rob's 45th birthday during this years shoot.

Gordon describes Rob as a great model, and a great guy. Rob's keeps his incredible body in model ready shape with yoga, and you can see the influence of yoga in many of poses. What I love most about Rob's work, besides his spectacular butt, is his physical interactions with his surroundings. Whether with the rocks and tree's all around him, or his poses with Will and Joel, Rob's interactions and connections are intensely sensual and highly erotic.

Brother Wear Thou Art

So many of you know I love me some Cody Calafiore, but call me late to the party, but it's time his brother Paul gets some time in the spotlight. Like most of you, I noticed Cody's hot brother during Cody's season of Big Brother, especially during their shirtless tennis segment last season. I have been planning to feature Paul's work for awhile, but some of his recent Instagram posts, have pushed me hurry the heck up!

Like Cody, Paul is a model, and has personality plus that shines through is images, and his social media postings. Cody and Paul not only share some pretty hot tight genes, but at certain angles have pretty similar facial features. So much so, many were posting Paul's images, crediting them as his brother Cody. One only need to look closely, which given it's Paul, is not that difficult of a task. His tats, and his adorable grin, always give him away if you looks closely enough. Check out his social media pages below, you will not be disappointed!
