The GLAAD Art Auction
Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012
5:00pm – 9:30pm
Metropolitan Pavilion
125 West 18th St.

Prime Meat is a comparative body study project of the male human form at it’s finest.  Athletes, dancers, trainers and fitness models of various ethnicities, size and age have been carefully selected to represent Prime Meat.  The men have been photographed in the same lighting, positions and similar poses enabling comparison and appreciation of the differences in body types, symmetry, shape, muscle size and striation.  Identities are anonymous to focus on the hard work and dedication of each subjects’ physique, allowing the viewer to examine and appreciate the span of unique yet magnificent dna.  The project is destined for further exhibition in the near future.

Instinct Magazine August 2012

Introducing our new cover, Instinct Magazine August 2012 issue with Dr. Paul Talbot.  I introduced the story of Paul, photographed for the cover and inside 6 pages.  It’s an interesting story with the tag line: “Coming To Terms With Himself & Coming Out To His Family In His 40s.”  On stands this week!

MMensuel Magazine 5th Anniversary w Evan Wadle

Please find our newest cover with model turned actor, Evan Wadle on MMensuel Magazine out of France.  We’ve got the cover and several pages within.  This is our second cover shot with Evan for MM and his third overall.   It’s fitting he’s the cover guy for the 5th Anniversary issue.  There is an interview with Evan discussing his early years as a model to his current life acting with the likes of Robert DeNiro and Dana Delaney as well as showing his appreciation of All his fans.  It’s a great read!

Nick Adams “Soar” from my Dance Series project

Nick Adams "Soar" from Dance Series Project

The amazing Nick Adams, currently starring in Priscilla Queen of the Desert – The Musical in the lead role of Adam/Felicia on Broadway.  I photographed Nick in late 2010 for a dance & fashion story.  Working with someone of Nick’s talent was a pure joy.

The photo was shot in Bathhouse studios in the East Village, NYC.  The image is pure, no manipulation in producing this amazing leap with shirt above the head and tie flying.  Capturing that special airborne moment with an intense yet handsome look was a challenge but I’d say we Nail It!

Recently the image was donated to GLAAD OUTAuction in NYC and sold to raise money for an important and wonderful cause.
