Chris soon began to get more choosey with his shoots, and started longing to fall back in love with his craft. Chris spoke to his partner about how he was feeling, and expressed his interest in shooting the male form. Chris' partner was incredibly supportive and encouraged him to pursue it. So it began, first with a friend, then a friend of a friend, and then the Instagram account Tasty Smut was born. It snowballed from there. As Chris's portfolio progressed, he decided that a photo book (or books) would be his end goal. You can out more about Chris' book HERE:
The location used in most of his shoots is a regional park near Chirs' home in Vancouver. There is nothing 'official' about the location and models are sometimes a little skeptical when the meeting place is on the shoulder of the road next too large, dark forest. It's the perfect spot to then walk into the woods until they find just the right colors, light and location.
For this particular shoot, the model wished to remain anonymous, so Chris tried not to clearly show his face. It was rainy that day and the model was cold and wet, with many of the images ending up messy and foggy. The model was a trooper and by the end of their time together, as you can see from this series, there were enough great shots to make the trek into the woods well worth the effort!
