Halloween Hotel: Jonah by MW Photo MD

'I never had Autumn in a hotel room before. I guess I felt like an indoor pumpkin!'

Last month, while working on a story featuring Mark's MW Photo MD work with Jon, (Comfortable in his Skin) I had an idea. I had seen some shots from one of Mark's previous studio shoots, with Autumn leaves falling over the nude model he was shooting. I asked Mark if he had any upcoming scheduled shoots if he might snap an Autumn or Halloween image or two for FH.

It was a welcomes surprise when Mark got in touch a few weeks ago about his recent work with 20 year old Pittsburgh model Jonah. Jonah has an incredible look, great body and face the most beautiful brown eyes. I loved Mark's shots of Jonah, and the images certainly were beyond my expectations, and I thank him for dragging the pumpkin and Autumn garland wrapped so beautifully draped around Jonah. Mark also made perfect use of Autumn leaves, (in the last two images) on and around Jonah lying on the bed.

Mark connected with Jonah via Model Mayhem while exploring a possible future trip to Pittsburgh. Mark not only liked Jonah's look, but also Jonah's answers to his questions while they were communicating a possible shoot. 'As far as wrapping himself in the Autumn apparel I showed it to him at he start of the shoot when I was unpacking and discussing different ideas and he took to it with no reservations once I introduced it during the shoot.'

Jonah shares that modeling is something he has always wanted to do. He found a local photographer who helped get him started, and together, they began building Jonah's portfolio. Jonah work has already began to draw notice and attention and he is off to California in a few weeks for some shoots and to check out the acting scene as well. I am sure many of you want to get to know more about Jonah, and see more of his work with Mark. Consider today's Halloween themed post an introduction, and I promise to feature more from their work together soon!
