THERE ARE THREE KIND OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MEN AND CARS. YOU CAN HATE THEM AND YOU CAN LOVE THEM. AND THEN YOU CAN ALSO REALLY, REALLY LOVE THEM. AND IF YOU ARE THAT PASSIONATE ABOUT CARS, YOU TREAT THEM LIKE THEY ARE YOUR LOVER. YOU CHERISH THEM. YOU COMFORT THEM. YOU POLISH THEM UNTIL THE SHINE OF PLEASURE. AND ABOVE ALL, YOU DON’T LET ANYONE ELSE TOUCH THEM. BEN IS SUCH A PERSON.
John Dougherty is that kind of guy that seems to be able to turn heads where ever he goes, without having to do much for that. A natural charm, a classic beauty and a body to die for. Yes, John Dougherty is the kind of guy that gets you to do things even if you didn’t want to give in to them. Living in New Jersey, John often can be found in New York City for castings and shoots. John met photographer Frank Louis for the first time though his agent Mike Lyons from Silver Models and both men hit it off immediately.
We know Frank as an artist with a very creative and conceptual way of thinking, and it so happens that John is the kind of guy who likes a bit of role play every now and then. We are still taking photography here of course. "We always work well together," explains John. "I enjoyed wearing some of the risque gear. When I do a shoot I think of it as an opportunity to play a role I wouldn’t get to enact in everyday life. So if the clothing is very sexually suggestive, I try to take that role and play with it to the best of my ability. Most importantly, I have fun."
Ben is a friend of Frank Louis. Ben is also the very proud owner of several classic cars, which he carefully keeps in a garage in Queens. Working on these cars is a passion for Ben, but also a lonely activity. So Ben is always happy whenever Frank comes along. Specially if Frank brings one or two of his models with him. As he did this time. It is no surprise that Frank choose the car theme as a concept for John. Somehow this guy seems to belong in a place filled with beautiful engines. Ben probably thought likewise because – protective as he usually is about his ‘babies’, when Frank proposed John would pose laying down on top of one of his classics, Ben immediately agreed. Like we said before, John is the kind of guy that gets things done. "It's funny because he never let's me touch his cars," Frank comments on his friend Ben. "But put John in a sexy pair of Rufskin and he would let John climb on top of the cars!!!"
Being a bodybuilder (guess you already guessed that one didn’t you) John is used to keep his body smooth and shaven. But when Frank asked him to let his hair grow for this particular shot, John was happy to comply. And learned that a nicely cultivated hairy chest is quite an exciting thing to have. We couldn’t agree more. John can drive our car anytime. –BM-
