Favorite Pic of the Day for December 24th

JW Johnson: Sugar Plums

'He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.'

It was this time last year I first featured the Christmas imagery of photographer JW Johnson. (Unwrapped) If you've checked out my features on JW's work the past 12 months you know that JW shoots far more than just Christmas themed images. Given it was however, an image of a naked male model falling out of Santa's sack, JW's holiday images will always remain favorites.

The Missouri photographer didn't initially plan on Christmas Tree's, presents and poinsettia's to be a big part of his work, but given shooting calendars and greeting cards became a big part of his photography work, a decked out Christmassy December backdrop was required. Soon, JW began having many of his models, even those not posing for the calendar's, pose beside or under the Christmas tree creating a huge archive of great holiday shots he's graciously shared with FH.

St. Nicholas Day: Mark Henderson by YogaBear Studio

Bells are ringin', children singin', all is merry and bright
So jump in bed, and cover your head, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Over the last decade plus, FH has featured many Sexy Santa's. But this version of the jolly St. Nick is relatively modern, stemming from the 1820 poem, 'An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas' by Clement Clarke Moore. With a little help from cartoonist Thomas Nast, and Coca Cola's depiction of Santa in the 1930's and we have the version most of us accept as Santa today.

Most models can put on the red hat and play Santa, but not all have the chops to pull off Saint Nicholas. The original Saint Nicholas didn't wear red, that came later. The original was a Christian bishop from Patara. (a land that is now is part of present day Turkey) The Bishop was known for providing food and clothing to the sick and poor. Stories of his miracles and work for the poor spread to other parts of the world, including America in the 1700's, providing the basis for the now popular character of Santa Clause.

I love all my sexy Santa's, but had been looking for a Saint Nicholas when I recently saw David from YogaBear Studio's recent work with model and actor Mark Henderson. These shots were taken during David's recent trip to Toronto. David and Mark captured the essence of the St. Nick, plus a great nod to the present with the gift giver checking his cell phone to ensure his bottom hits down on just right chimney.

'This beautiful spirit David Gray flew from one end of our continent to almost the other to stay with me for 3 days and shoot me non stop. One cannot imagine how humbling and flattered I felt, all at once. He is grace and serenity. He directs me in precise small motions that later I see how he was 10 steps ahead of me.'

Zach Galligan: All Tied Up

One man, three women, and a very long rope...

A recent shot of a still stunning Zach

With Molly Ringwald in Surviving (1985)

Although sadly, or not so sadly, actor Zach Galligan didn't go the Martin Hewitt route into Shannon Tweedish soft core straight to video softcore flicks.  He did however make this 1993 film that although light on nudity, was heavy on hotness with the bondage scenes.  Galligan briefly shows his butt to celebrate after finally being free, but the scenes with him tied up are much more erotic.

All Tied Up (1993)

Linda's boyfriend Brian loves checking out other women, so her best friends Kim and Sharon convince her that the three of them kidnap him and torture him until he learns his lesson.

An Instagram Christmas: FaVorites

Every Christmas season, as I'm scrolling through Instagram, I keep my eye out for the hottest of holiday photos.  So many artists I follow bring a little Christmas into their art, and so many of the models I follow seem to love decking their halls and hanging their ornaments completely naked.


Each year, I put together some of my favorites, most, are models and artists I featured before, some, I hope to share more of on FH in the upcoming year.  Despite the limits of what you can post on Instagram, most have found creative ways to still share some incredibly hot shots.  Here some of my favorite festive follows for this year.
