Bonne Année!

Out with the old, in with the new!  

Happy New Year to all!  I really appreciate all of those who check in daily and all of those who support and contribute to the site. I especially want to thank the models and artists who create and provide original content for the site. I love sharing images not seen before like this New Year's themed artwork by badsign769 I can't think of a better visual to illustrate 2021 on FH coming to a close and a look to 2022 on the horizon.

Bursting His Bubbles

After a chilled and relaxed Christmas shoot, (Dasher) model Hansel Wellington is back in front of the lens of Tom Nakielski. (Lights On Studio)  For New Year's however, Tom wanted a little more celebratory and arousing.  Check out what he and Hansel concocted on the NEXT PAGE HERE:

Hot Sessions:

Mikey Saber is a washed-up porn star who returns to his small Texas hometown, not that anyone really wants him back.

Did anyone have this on their 2021 bingo card?  A former solo jack-off video star nominated for an Academy Award?  It's possible with all the buzz actor Simon Rex is getting for his role in the award winning drama Red Rocket.

The film, written and directed by Sean Baker is already racking up a slew of nominations and awards.  Rex has also won several acting honors for his role as Mikey Saber including best actor from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.  Rex made quite an impact in the early 2000's, and it's great to see him make such a worthy comeback. 

Red Rocket is just one of the films and Simon Rex just one of the actors spotlighted in my annual year end Sex in Cinema feature.  Check out the entire list on the HERE:

Briancan Photography: Too Early in the Game?

Maybe it's much too early in the game 
Ah, but I thought I'd ask you just the same 
What are you doing New Year's, New Year's eve?
Ella Fitzgerald

Given it's a night most people don't want to spend alone, when is too early to start planning for New Year's Eve?  If you want a date, a reservation, you have to think about it early. f you want to go or have a party of your own, (pre-pandemic) you need time to organize.  Even if you just want to stay home with a partner,  snuggle in with Chinese take-out and a movie, time is not always on your side. 

Planning for this holiday soiree, actually began in October.  A New Year's Eve party however, wasn't initially endgame. It began when I saw an image that Brian (Briancan Photography) posted on his Instagram.  I loved the shot, especially the model's pose, his strong body and striking facial structure.  The model was Cayden Clay, and I immediately contacted Brian about a possible FH feature.

Brian was on board, so I then shot Cayden a message.  Most of the images from Brian that I saw featured Cayden outside and on the beach and considered waiting and posting them next spring.  I'm not known for my patience however, and was eager to to feature Brian's work with Cayden.  As luck would have it, Brian messaged me that he and Cayden had an indoor shoot scheduled for December 14th. 

I took the opportunity to ask both Brian and Cayden if they'd consider shooting a few New Year's Even themed shots during their time together.  I expected maybe one or two shots of Cayden in a party hat but as you can see, they went above and beyond.  Since no one should spend New Year's Eve alone, Cayden was joined by model Sterlingjock to capture both the big night, and the morning after. 

'I had worked with Cayden and Sterlingjock before as a duo in an outdoor shoot earlier this year and they had great chemistry together. So it made sense to bring them together in the studio. Tye gets the credit for the New Year's Eve idea which worked really well. The models seem to like the idea of a new years eve shoot and coordinated the jock, shirts and ties which added to the look I like using this furnished studio as it provides an interesting backdrop for shoots like this. Obviously the sofa came in handy. LOL '

Cayden enjoyed the sofa and the many props and interesting backgrounds the studio provided.. Although he had  previously met Sterlingjock when they worked with Brian last summer, this was the first time Cayden posed nude with another model.  It was also nice celebrating the holiday, even a few weeks early, especially given the pandemic is going to mean the 31st is going to be quieter and more intimate than the previous New Year's Eve parties that Cayden usually goes to.

'Brian is very enthusiastic and encouraging; he takes suggestions and offer lots of ideas. The whole process runs pretty smoothly so I appreciate that. It was also  nice to get creative with the props and gave us something to work since we weren’t modeling any clothes!'

Seasonal Sightings:


12 Days: David Duchovny in New Year's Day

'A man returns to his sublet apartment to find the previous tenants, three offbeat young women, still in residence, under the mistaken belief that they have the apartment until the end of New Year's Day.'

I sort of missed my window to really lust after David Duchovny. I was in high school when The X-Files fist came on, and never really got around to watching.  I tried a few episodes when I was a bit older, but just couldn't get into it.  I liked the cast, and the premise, it just didn't draw me in.  I've had people tell me that I need to give it another shot, maybe one of these days....

Now... if I'd been around when Duchovny was lifeguarding, (below) I certainly would have paid attention.  Sadly, I was just a baby back then.  I'm guessing by the shot below, when he was known as 'Cricket' and working as an Ocean Beach Lifeguard on Fire Island was in the late 70's or early 80's.  

I think I first noticed the actor when I finally got on-line in the late 90's.  My introduction was seeing grainy caps on the old Horsey's board of a nude Duchovny from VHS copies of The Rapture (1991) and New Year's Day. (1989)  New Year's Day was Duchovny's first real film credit.  His only other appearance before was a 'Birthday party guest ' in 1988's Working Girl.

It's not surprising the actor was up for a full frontal in his first big screen role.  Both The Rapture and New Year's Day did get better quality releases, but as it often goes, Duchovny's frontal did not make the cut..

The Rapture (1991)

Californication (2007-2014)

Thanks so some early cappers, there are a couple of fairly decent caps from the scene on-line.  Below are two of the best.  I've also included a clip, but the quality is not that great.  Most interesting to me, was discovering that the actress pushing Duchovny naked out of her apartment is Maggie Wheeler, who want on to play Janice on Friends

Champagne Showers: Hansel by Lights On Studio

'Tom wanted me to let it shoot all over everything and onto myself!'

For his Christmas themed shoot, photographer Tom Nakielski (Lights On Studio) aimed for something suave and sophisticated. (Dasher)  For New Year's Eve however, Tom wanted something more explosive. With model Hansel Wellington back in the studio, Tom decided it was the perfect time to experiment.  Most photographers would have been gratified with an orgasmic eruption of bubbles and fizz... not Tom.  He want to push a little further and decided to purchase some fireworks and see if he could capture them shooting out of a bottle of champagne. 

Now Hansel was fine with popping his cork, but when it came to explosives, he was a bit more apprehensive.  The fact Tom had a fire extinguisher at the ready didn't exactly help make him feel any better.   Hansel knew that feeling tense wouldn't help the situation. He knew he needed to remain calm and relax in order to a achieve a spectacular visual climax.

'We did the Christmas shots and kept it subdued. I was going for something more sophisticated and debonair. When we got around to the New Years shots I asked Hansel if he was up for something more combustive. Immediately he sprung to life.  Once we lit the fireworks he sprung to life with the joyful look of celebrating the stroke of midnight. We both had a lot of fun doing something involving explosives. LOL'

Hansel shares that he was super excited about doing another shoot with Tom and says that for the New Year's Even them, Tom really outdid himself! In addition to how much fun Tom is to work with, one of the things Hansel most appreciates about the Michigan based photographer is his attention to detail.  For this shoot, Hansel shares that Tom knew exactly what he wanted to capture.

'Tom wanted me to shake a bottle of champagne and let it shoot all over everything and onto myself! I felt just like Prince at the end of Purple Rain with his ejaculating guitar.' 

'The champagne went everywhere and it was the best mess ever. We also did sparklers that shot out of the bottle too, that was a riot!  It says in bold letters on the sparklers "FOR OUTDOOR USE ONLY" and Tom was all set to do this in the studio anyway. I was like, ok, hope we don't burn the place down' 
I'm not sure what the alcohol content for combustion is, but the entire photo set was covered in it...'

With all the sparks emitted and the fluids ejected, by the time Hansel achieved his New Year's Eve midnight blast, the studio was a wet mess. Tom shares that this particular artistic encounter required more cleanup than any of his previous shoots.  As always however, Hansel not only assisted throughout the entire process, he even helped clean up the studio once the shoot had culminated.
