SUGAR AND SPICE. STICKY AND SWEET. SALTY AND BITTER. NAUGHTY AND NICE. WE ALL HAVE OUR SECOND NATURE. A DARKER SIDE OF OUR PERSONALITY THAT IS SOMEHOW MORE BRAVE, MORE COURAGEOUS. YES, MORE DARING. FOR SOME IT IS A SECOND NATURE. OTHER ARE MORE CAREFUL I REVEALING THEIR MISCHIEVOUS CHARACTERISTICS. AND THAN THERE ARE SOME HOW WORK AS A CATALIST ON OTHERS TO BRING THEIR NAUGHTY SIDE OUT.
"Obsession, attraction and desire are all elements associated with photographs that inspire me. Most definitely all of these elements come into play when I am shooting my golden boy Bobby Momenteller. From our very first test shoot, I knew he had something there that was different than all the other models trying to make their way. He has a phenomenal body and an extremely attractive dark side; which comes through in his photographs. The fact that I have a huge crush on him makes it even that much more exciting when I know he is coming to my house to play. However, do not be fooled. This rock-hard sex-god has a sweet down-home southern-boy appeal and is as honest as the day is long (which makes him even hotter)."
"If you simply look at the aesthetics of his physic, it rivals one of Michael Angelo’s sculptures. Along with his amazing body, the white trash tattoos give him a modern edge that no other model has. It is obvious to the viewer that Bobby has the look and appeals to our new physical culture."
"I went into the shoot with definite ideas in mind. I wanted to capture the naughty and the nice side of Bobby. One of the most ironic things here is that I can be such a control freak about getting the look I am going for. However, as Bobby and I continued shooting, I began to realize that I was being controlled by him. I would see him in a different light, a different situation, and wonder “why don’t I have my camera now?” This is what inspired me to shoot him waking up naked in my bed." - Justin Monroe -
"Being a professional model in midwest Chicago, its very trying at times. So when Justin calls me to shoot, I get very excited. I know it is going to be outrageous, provocative and fun. I was brought into modeling at the age of six by my mother. Later, as my physic started to develop, I became a fitness model and began to do some nude modeling."
"I have always been comfortable with my sexuality from a young age. It was not a big deal to show my body. I was taught to never be afraid or never be ashamed. According to my mother, “the naked body is beautiful.” So for me it was never a taboo. When I started modeling for fitness magazines and ads, it allowed me even more comfort and allowed myself to feel better in my own skin. I am pretty much fearless being nude. Justin further helped me with this. He pulled out my innermost sex-god hahahaha fuck yeah! We would shoot and say “imagine what people would think? Have we gone overboard now? Daddy I think you should give me a milk bath in our next photo. hahaha.” Justin Monroe and I are two peas in a pod. He allows me to create, be fearless, and pull out my inner emotions. It is a true love connection." - Bobby Momenteller –
Naughty and nice are two ingredients that probably say everything there is about Justin Monroe. A nice guy who is able to express his deepest and most wicked fantasies and wishes through his exceptional photography. And Bobby Momenteller seems to be a willing victim for Justin’s creative escapies. Which does make you wonder, who is the naughtiest of these two. -BM-
