UK Personal trainer and body transformation specialist Luke Hayes is certainly a stunning example of what can be achieved with determination and hard work. Some good genes, and that adorable smile, don't hurt either.
I have been following the work of photographer Ron Reyes since first featuring his images during my salute to The Aloha State back in 2011. Recently, Ron has been sharing some fun, literally behind, behind the scenes shots on his Facebook page. Given how much I love candid shots, I wanted to share. If you want to see more, be sure to check out Ron's FB site page HERE:
Sensuous can sometimes be a complicated word. I try to use it sparingly because it doesn't fit all models, and all images. Many of the adjectives used to describe images of great looking men, sexy, strong, hot are words to describe what we see. Sensuous is a word which describes what we feel.
Chicago's Chris A. Freeman choice of sensuous perfectly described what I saw, and felt, when seeing his work with 23 year old universit student and model Patrick Parker. Patrick's sensuality literally oozes from Chris' images. It stems from Patrick's incredible body and face, but most prominently, it comes powerfully out of his beautifully expressive brown eyes.
Patrick's eyes are sending a signal to the viewer, a strong and clear directive, that sex ,is firmly on his mind and in his future. The messages Patrick so beautifully sends to the viewer come from his feelings about modeling, being naked, and the process of creating strong and sexy visuals.
'Being exposed in front of a creative person is one of the most amazing feelings in the world. I am able and willing to be as up-close, personal, and erotic as needed. I am comfortable posing with people of both genders and in any state of erection. I really don't have inhibitions. If you can think of it, I'll probably do it. I want to make your vision happen!'
Chris shot Patrick in an apartment in Chicago that he had rented for the day. It was difficult to plan a shot list or concept as he had no idea of what the inside of the apartment would look like, or what he would find there, until arriving for the shoot. When he and Patrick arrived, they rearranged some of the room decorations to set up the main shoot in front of the doors leading out to the deck. The back lighting from the large doors worked perfectly cascading over Patrick's skin and naked body.
'As you can tell, Patrick was not the least bit shy about being naked or sensual. He loved it, in fact. Patrick is a student as very prestigious college near Chicago and came into town for the shoot. Patrick is a bundle of amazing charm and energy who as much or more than any model I've ever worked to perform. He was non-stop "on" for two hours!'
