In my head, the end of summer is the last day of September. I know I know, for most, it ends after Labor Day weekend. But, not for me. The remaining weeks are still pretty warm. And, most of us are in denial anyways. So, it is fitting that I feature some of my recent work that is a bit SCANDALOSO.
I shot for Ian Cole’s new magazine venture called Pin-Up Boys earlier this year. Ian Cole is the creator of the magazine trilogy out of London of Client, Carbon Copy and Supplementaire magazines. So, he has added a new magazine that pays homage to the sexy beefcake shots of nameless male models from back in the day. It is a coffee table magazine as he describes. You must check it out. There are several well-known photographers who have contributed their takes on the subject. And, then, there is ME. Ian, however, requested that all of the contributors to this venture shoot agency models only. So, as you can imagine, the HOT bar has been risen.

And, for your raincoaters out there, I am only posting TWO images from the book that I have contributed. And, as you can see, I took a more ‘glamorous’ approach to the beefcake. Nothing too crazy but for my blog, I try to avoid making this a place where people can ‘put the needle on the record’ if you know what I mean.
Bon Voyage Summer 2011. And, Happy Friday.
Featured in issue #9 of Carbon Copy Magazine. Out on October 3. Check it out.

So, I shot some portraits of Mr. Petersen (DNA) for The Fashionisto. And, we all know how I love shooting some portraits. But, I wanted to get away from the window and the traditional trappings rendered to portraits. So, here was my testament to change. Check out the full set over at The Fashionisto.
So, Get Ready
Thanks Chelsea (my on and off again assistant) for getting Chris wet (tee hee hee); Thanks to Carl over at The Fashionisto for running my portrait set; And, of course, thanks to you Chris. You are a true sport.
I wake up to this madness everyday. My Wall of Fame (WOF) is turning into a Ceiling of Fame (COF). All of this talent and amazing souls on my walls, how can I go wrong. Make it a great week. Happy Monday Trannies.
Mr. Joseph Turnbull_Fusion; A Tall Drink of Water; Polite and shy. Sublimely beautiful. And, you should see his girlfriend too. It’s not fair. Thank you Joseph for Some of the best portraits that I have taken.
Another portrait drive-by at my studio during NYFW. Funny and surprisingly witty and self aware of their brand. I genuinely liked these guys. I am happily awaiting to see their ascent.
Thanks Allen (RED NYC) for sending these guys my way. And, Jordan and Zac, let’s do this again. Thanks for ‘driving’ by. Happy Friday Peeps.
FINALLY, as my cousin says, I have joined the Twitter chat. So, I believe that I say something like, I am @watterswithtwot
That’s my handle. Can you handle it trannies? And, yes, I realize that it looks like Watters with Twot. But, it really means WATTERS WITH TWO T (‘s makes it too long). But, follow me; follow me; follow me.
Good Morning and Good Night. I guess that should be my first tweet, huh? Happy Tweeting Trannies.
