Editorial Feature: Sei So

Hello Trannies!!! Another day; Another editorial.

Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 3.22.19 AM

 

So, here is one of my most current editorials that has just hit the digital/analog bookshelves. I have been working as the new editorial photographer of men’s fashion for World Bride Magazine. It is an interesting job to say the least with my brand of edge coupled with their commercial sensibilities. But, the mix has proven to be quite refreshing. My job is to show the fashion/process that men have to prepare for that special day. Please check out the website for more information.Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 3.47.41 AM

At any rate, I wanted to share a few out takes from our story and day. We have an amazing team at WBM starting with our fearless leader/editor in chief/owner, Myrdith McCormack. It doesn’t get any better. IMG_1789Followed by one of the most gifted stylist and Fashion Editor (and, now successful designer) in the business, Carlton Jones.

GIF Wednesdays: There Goes The Neighborhood

 

IMG_0283-MOTION

For Gif Wednesdays, I decided to feature my latest and greatest editorial for Jon Magazine. Here are some of the shots that were featured in the magazine. And, of course, the cutting room floor shots that were never used. I am always bummed when there is a shot of some really cool clothes not used. BUT, they always find a home somehow. And, this gives you some insight of how many shots that I use for one set up.

But, thinking back, it was an incredible day. We shot in Jersey City in several locations. And, the weather was HOT and wide open sun. Not a favorite of mine to shoot weather wise.  But, we had the home base of the very talented Coco Bennett (make-up artist). Thanks a million. And, our creative director/stylist Mr. Rudy Reed. Endless options and forward thinking ideas. Check out more of Rudy’s work here: Fashion Forward Men.

And, the amazing talent that I got to spend the day shooting: Chris Bunn (IMG), Brendon Beck (Fusion), Mikhail Dorfman (ADAM), Michael Markiewicz (Wilhelmina) and Dakota Taylor (Click). They brought the character and kept the day moving. Thanks so much. And, of course, Marc Massa, my assistant; And, Cedric Antonio, Rudy’s assistant. Marc and Cedric, we couldn’t have made the day without you. And, finally, thanks to Stephen Conway at Jon and to all of the bookers who trusted my vision. Please visit Jon Magazine to see more of my work in this issue.

Fucking Young_Online Edition: Jacob

I hate to use the word MUSE. But, I am not sure what else to call Jacob Morton (other than friend of course). Constantly inspiring me to shoot at higher heights and telling a story in a different way photographically, he gets me. But, by permission of CW Talent (Jacob’s Mother Agent and also repped by DNA),  we are allowed to soar the skies of creativity. Check out our latest endeavour for Fucking Young (their online edition): FUCKING YOUNG

 

Here is a sneak peek

Thanks to stylist, Ekaterina Razgonova as always bring the A game. And, big ups to Jacobbler. I need to see at one more campaign this year Jacob. And, finally, thanks Adriano for believing in our work.

 

 Happy Monday. Make the day count.

Editorial Feature: Jon Magazine

 

01 Capture

 

As I  ‘sneak peeked’ last week, the newest issue of Jon Magazine, lovingly called the ‘Hay’ issue, features my portrait essay on Dustin Kime (RED). Kime is a country boy at heart. And, this was the ‘Hay’ issue. So, instead of making the story so literal about hay, we decided to make the story semi-biographical about his Southern roots. So, we revisted the time of when we first met. Dustin had just  moved here from Florida where he was a successful teen model. The transition to NYC was tough. No money, no cell phones, no place to call his own and basically couch surfing, Dustin was lost. And, his girlfriend at that time, who he loved and missed, wasn’t supportive of the move. And, oh yeah, he was surrounded by hot ‘willing’ women all the time. So, he was constantly struggling to stay faithful. Great times, right? So, I wanted to capture that moment because most of us have experienced that demoralizing transition from home to NYC.

The story was toned down for the magazine.  In fact, the original story title was called ‘Sweet Pussy Lara’. A lovely reference to Lara Stone. She was the ‘go to’ when he was ‘lonely’.  It was less a fashion editorial and more of a detailed account of his struggles. It really pushed the envelope. And, Dustin gave me full access to his lonely nights from wondering aimlessly alone in his solitude to his overwhelming sexual desire to be with his woman but not being able to do anything about it.  Perhaps, I should publish the out takes. As prurient as it might come across, it was that lonely place where you struggle with what you tell your lover but what really is going on in your mind.  It was difficult to capture it photographically without it being called porn or excessive maybe. But, it was honest.

To see the full editorial, you will have to buy the current issue of Jon Magazine. Jon can be found on most newsstands or by mail order. Check it out: Jon Magazine.

 

Thanks to Stephen Conway of Jon Magazine and Dustin Kime for his trust in allowing me to revisit some tough times that he had back then.  Happy Tuesday.
