Beach Day

🌻 Welcome Summer!🌻

What better way than a BEACH DAY to kick off the hottest season of the year!

Vacances à la Plage

Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to have done multiple pieces on many artists and models.  The man swimming through the sea in these images is a both a model and photographer I've featured many times previously on FH:

Beach Day I'm Most Looking Forward To...

'There’s a level of trust and intimacy that’s even more valuable when society is against you, You keep your secrets together.
Matt Bomer

It's always exciting when two of your favorite actors are paired in a project, especially when they're as talented as Matt Bomer and Jonathan Baily.  I love both Bomer and Baily and am really looking forward to seeing them together this fall in the Showtime 8 episode series Fellow Travelers.

'Created by Oscar-nominated writer Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia), Fellow Travelers is a love story and political thriller, chronicling the volatile romance of two very different men who meet in the shadow of McCarthy-era Washington. '

'Bomer will play charismatic Hawkins Fuller, who maintains a financially rewarding, behind-the scenes career in politics. Hawkins avoids emotional entanglements – until he meets Tim Laughlin, a young man brimming with idealism and religious faith. They begin a romance just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn declare war on “subversives and sexual deviants,” initiating one of the darkest periods in 20th-century American history.'

We first got a sneak peak of Bomer and Bailey in the series last fall when Spashnews released images of the two co-stars filming a beach scene on Lake Ontario.  The series was shot in Ontario, and areas around Toronto for close to six months at the end of last year.  Two weeks ago, Showtime released the trailer.  Although an exact airdate has not been confirmed, it's expected to air sometime this fall.

'The nuance of a complicated, volatile queer relationship is the power balance—and that is what is amazing about Tim and Hawk, Every single sex scene is a meticulous examination of power.'
Jonathan Bailey, Vanity Fair

Wet Denim: Noah White by Michael von Redlich

'Noah is an amazing, dynamic spirit!'

For most of us, unless our jeans are in the washing machine, wet denim isn't usually a great thing.  It usually means we got in the rain, were out in the snow, or had some sort of 'accident' involving a liquid. Wet denim scratches the skin, is heavy to wear, and starts to stink after awhile.  It's especially hard in the winter, when it starts to freeze when we're still outdoors. 

Tightly wrapped around the beautiful body of Noah White however, wet denim has never looked hotter!  I first featured Noah's work with photographer Michael von Redlich, (Carnally Contagious)  earlier this month.   There were so many different looks, locations and themes captured in their whirlwind two day shoot, I couldn't possibly have fit in all my favorites.

I mentioned Michael also shared his work with Noah on the beach, and promised to share them at a later date.  These shot are actually not part of that first shoot, but from a later, and different beach shoot. The first day of summer seemed the perfect time to spend a day watching the waves, and watching the nectarous Noah playing and splashing in them.

Michael shares that this theme was actually Noah's idea.  During their first shoot together, Michael and Noah shot on a public beach, and although they tried to find quiet areas on the beach to shoot, they still had to be careful, keeping an eye out for people who might be passing by.  

Now, I'm sure you'd all agree that it would be almost impossible not to plunk your towel down, sit and enjoy the show, if you came upon Michael shooting Noah splashing in the waves.  With this in mind, for this second beach shoot, Michael and Noah headed to place where seeing a nude man in the surf wouldn't shock any Florida seniors, curious Karens or little kids soaking up some vitamin D. 

The nude beach shoot was Noah's inspiration, he really wanted to go for it 💯

This particular piece of Florida coastline Playalinda Beach near Cocoa Beach.  The location provided the freedom both photographer and model were looking for.  Michael shares that when in front of the camera, Noah has an impish sense of fun and abandon.  You can certainly sense that fun in this series images.
