I Have No Idea

So my blog is all screwed up and I have no idea why. Images aren't displaying and it's all just really pretty frustrating. Going to see with this post if I can get things to display correctly. If so then I may just have to delete prior posts because I can't stand to have them out there looking jacked up. It's unfortunate but that's life. Hopefully moving forward will be refreshing and a good place to recommit to more frequent activity.

Cross your fingers!

Absentee Photographer

I really had no idea it has been so long since I'd posted here.  Wow.  I kinda suck eh?  Well I've been focusing alot of attention over at FB with my Lightweaver fanpage.  Go ahead, click it and take a look.  I'll wait...



My hope is that it becomes a great portal for anyone interested in the male modeling industry where models can get good tips on building their portfolios and getting the best shots and others can keep up on what's current.




So tell your friends, come by and click "like" while you're on the page and share with anyone you think would be interested!

Fuck 2010

Yeah I said it, good riddance to 2010!  Here's looking forward to bigger and better things for 2011!  By the way as a sidenote, if you're not pronouncing it "Twenty Eleven" then I think you're a ruhtard.  Now that's over with let's see what I can come up with in my archives to share with you today. 

Due to the Holidays and all the crap that steals my time during December I've not been shooting much.  However I did get one interesting shoot in before Christmas and you might like to see the results.  It was really just a test with a guy I'd never worked with before but I got some good shots that I wasn't really expecting. 

The model's name is Lee and I'd love ya more than a basketful of kittens if you let me know what you think of them.

Oh yeah, that reminds me of a resolution I'd like FROM all you silent little bastards.  Leave some damn comments once in awhile!  Stop making me feel like this whole blog thing is just a vanity project.  Well hell we all know it is but still I'd love to see some interaction on here.  Talk To Me!!!

Going to go take my meds now.

Ready... Set... GO!


My friend Eric was coming in from New York over Thanksgiving.  Eric is the kind of guy I wish I could have available to my camera 24/7.  He shows up ready to give himself to the artistic process.  No matter how kooky the idea seems he throws himself into it and trusts me as the artist to make it awesome.

Now Gage had been wanting someone to pose with for awhile so this seemed like a natural fit.  Score!  But I had to come up with something crazy/awesome.  With no clear direction I went shopping and just started grabbing elements.  Couple of ties, an eye patch, a first aid kit and a few accessories from my own wardrobe.
 
Day of the shoot comes, Eric and Gage show up, I throw the odd assortment of props at them and they made the magic happen.  Awesome!

New Male Art Series

I am looking for non-model, real everyday men for a series titled "Stripped Raw". The concept is very simple, no props or clothes to hide behind, stripped down to just you and my camera. I want to capture honest, vulnerable emotion. I'm asking for a lot in terms of emotional trust and honesty. The result will be a ...collection that shows a whole side of the male species that is rarely captured for public viewing. 

Regarding the nudity, I'm not out to see your bits and bobbles.  The nudity requirement should hopefully be self explanatory but if not then I'll say this... Clothes, labels, give us a shield, something to hide behind.  When absolutely everything is taken away that could possibly keep the world from seeing the real you... what's left?  Just you and your emotions.  

I will not be directing you to pose in any particular manner.  I am looking for males of all shapes, sizes, ethnicity, social backgrounds and age. 
What I really am hoping for is to personally connect with the subject emotionally.  The photography setting will simply be a place for the subject to sit, stand, recline, lay, whatever and just talk to me.  I want authenticity above all else.  I want the subject to be emotionally vulnerable and share with me some of his most guarded secrets, history, etc.  I will happen to be holding my camera and snap shots when appropriate.  If I catch a bit of an emotional breakdown, fit of anger, etc. then perfect.  But I hope at the very least to capture the most honest expressions and body language possible.  I will give no direction as to posing or anything as I don't want anything to look posed.  Basically just sit, talk, shoot.

Contact me and let's make this happen.

Joey






This time we at least weren't nearly arrested. Although we created images hot enough to cause a stir. Here is Joey again, this time entirely solo and hotter than ever. I'm going to shut up now and just let you drool.
