Have you ever experienced the sensual arts of a lap dancer? Have you ever given in to that deep rooted temptation to own a person and be able to do with him what ever you like to do? Even though you know, deep inside yourself, it is not you who masters the scene but it is him who calls the shots. You buy him and you own him, but only for as long as he allows to be owned. And even if you do, he will never give away control. He is a professional. An animal of prey. A hunter who knows exactly how to get you where he wants. He moves, flexing his muscles. He allows to be touched. Slightly. He plants his strong tights over your lap and just when you think you got him, he moves away, proving he is not yours to have. Unless of course he is willing to let you have a go at him. It all depends on the price you are willing to pay. He is a private dancer.
Few photographers and probably even fewer renowned models can carry a the sugar daddy/ go go dancer concept such as described above. But if it is New York photographer Thomas Synnamon who comes up with the idea, you can be sure the execution will be a series of portraits that carry the perfect balance of raw sexuality and sophisticated style. Over the years, Thomas has showed proof of his extra ordinary talent in a large variety of shoots and concepts. And whether it is pure fashion, artistic nudes, sleepless men or more sexual loaded photographs, Thomas Synnamon does it with a creativity and skill, that has created a strong signature style, characterizing him as being one of the best male photographers of this time.
Fair enough. To shoot great photos, you need a good photographer. To shoot a stunning portrait, you also need to have a model who can place himself in the role you want him to play. Levi Poulter is such a model. No newbie here on BeautifulMag, we have seen Levi in several series, by probably just as many photographers. This good-looking guy from Miami is a well sought after model by international photo artists. A proven fact when Levi became figure head of website Men At Work in 2009. He plays his masculinity and sexuality in a shameless yet stylish way, is totally at ease in front of the camera and seems to give himself very little restrictions. In other words, a dream come true for every male physiques photographer.
Recently Levi Poulter as visiting New York City and agreed on another shoot with Thomas Synnamon. The concept this time: an sensual lap dance. For that scenario you do of course need a second man, which was easily found in the sexy Eddy Barrena. What makes this series even more exciting is that this private dance seems to take place inside a dressing room instead of backstage of a strip club. It gives the whole story almost a second entry. Thomas Synnamon has outdone himself once more with his Private Dancer series, by creating photographs that, also due to the smart usage of a mirror, never lose interest. –B-
