'I LOVE THE CHALLENGE OF TAKING AN ATTRACTIVE GUY WHO HAS NEVER MODELED AND GETTING HIM TO EXPOSE HIMSELF AND LIVE OUT HIS MOST EXHIBITIONISTIC TENDENCIES IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA .'(Anton Russ) Canadian photographer Anton Russ lives a respectful double life. By day he is an unassuming self employed creative director, working with clients in North America, South America and Europe, on branding and fashion related strategic marketing initiatives. But in the middle of the week, he occasionally sneaks off for a day to capture the youth in an unexpected way – living out their fantasies…and his own as well. Anton Russ never made his living behind the lens of a camera, but has always been fascinated by the notion of capturing a moment in time when a man exudes his most exhibitionistic tendencies in front of a camera. Just because he knows deep down his soul how fleeting youth and beauty really are. Anton does not shoot just for the sake of shooting. His goal, the ultimate achievement, is to dig deep while photographing his subjects, and portray a side of his models that even they didn’t know existed. To capture their innocence, their beauty, and more often than not, that curious bad guy that exists within so many of us, that is what drives Anton in creating his beautiful art. Recently Anton Russ launched his new website, in which you can find a large variety of images, capturing a decade of shooting in Europe, North America and the Caribbean. –B-
WITH JOE OPPEDISANO YOU NEVER REALLY KNOW WHAT THE REAL IDEA IS BEHIND HIS FANTASTIC PHOTOGRAPHS. IS IT FASHION? OR IS IT SIMPLY LUST? OR IS IT LUSTY FASHION? WHATEVER IT IS, IT IS WHAT JOE DOES BEST. Once again New York based photographer Joe Oppedisano brings us a tasty example of his unique talent to combine masculine and tough looking guys with unexpected surroundings, shooting them in provocative poses that urges you to step into the photo and do, well, whatever you the image invites you to do. As no other Joe knows how to create that special steamy atmosphere. We have seen it in his successful book Testosterone, and we have seen in on numerous occasions here on Beautiful as well, not in the least in the exciting interview we had with last year January. (Getting Dirty with Joe Oppedisano, Sex with Joe Oppedisano, Playing with Joe Oppedisano). This time Joe has been able to capture model Brandon Mills with his camera. Brandon, with his angelic look, his length of 6'2" (1,87m) 40” chest and 32” waist, is not an unknown face in the international modeling world. Already he has decorated many magazine covers, like French gay lifestyle magazine Têtu. Some of the photos from this particular series can be found in this months Pref Magazine, and now Joe gave Beautiful the opportunity to present the complete selection. Only for you. –B- JOE OPPEDISANO | BEAUTIFUL
‘A BEAUTIFUL MAN’ IS A PROJECT BY TIM REID AND SCOTT ROBERTS. BASED ON PERSONAL PROFILES THAT CAN BE FOUND ON CHAT SITES AND PUBLIC AREAS LIKE MY SPACE, THEY CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA, THAT ALLOWS ORDINARY GUYS TO SHOW THEIR TRUE SEXINESS AND BEAUTY. If you ever fantasized about a guy you just saw on the street, in a shop, the metro or a bar, what he would look like without clothes, what his sexual fantasies are, A Beautiful Man is the book for you. Creaters Tim and Scott have scouted several sexy men through chat sites and public profiles – in other words, men like you and me – and given them the opportunity to show their sensuality in the most intimate way in A Beautiful Man. Each guy has been given about 15 pages, which allows you to enter their private world of raw sexuality and natural beauty. Almost ready with the first shooting, the A Beautiful Man team is looking for a publisher. And, because there is always more, they are also interested in other profiles for more shootings. In both cases, you can send an email to [email protected]. Find out more about A Beautiful Man on their site at www.myspace.com/abmbookproject, or here on Beautiful. –B- A BEAUTIFUL MAN | BEAUTIFUL
