WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT AS A PHOTOGRAPHER YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET AND SHOOT A TOTALLY INEXPERIENCED MAN RIGHT AT THE MOMENT YOU MEET HIM. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES YOU SHOOT THIS MAN AT A CHILD'S BIRTHDAY PARTY, OR EVEN IN THE BIRTHDAY CHILD'S BED? RIGHT, ZERO TO NOTHING. STILL IT ALL HAPPENED TO CHRISTIAN BUEHNER.
The photo shoot with Juan Marrero was one of the most unusual. It took place at a birthday party in the villa in which Cris Iris also has his photo studio. Christian met Juan for the first time at one of those Spanish birthday parties that start already in the afternoon. The hostess introduced them to each other and Crist was immediately fascinated by Juan's charisma. He had the feeling that he would be insanely happy to shoot him. So Cris asked Juan whether they could meet for a shooting someday. Juan said, that he just had little time at the moment and what Cris really wanted to do because he didn´t feel at all like a model. Cris told him, that he actually liked to do some portraits of him. He was not interested in it and said that at some point Cris should get in touch with him and then they could see further on. That was somehow not very specific and so Cris, not willing to take no for an answer, asked him if they could not do it right now, just a few test shoots.
It took some persuasion but eventually Juan Marrero agreed to shoot a few portraits right then.Together they went to Cris Iris' photostudio. Feeling how precisou his time might be, Cris didn't want to loose any time installing flashes and so on, so he decided , the sunlight in the photo studio would be good enough. He installed Juan beside the window and asked him, if he could maybe take off the shirt . He put his shirt to the side and they started to shoot some portraits. The result was really good. Cris found him to be extremely photogenic. Juan was totally clueless, innocent, but somehow open.
Cris Iris had already noticed, as Juan took off the shirt, that he had a very appealing torso and somehow he became really keen on shooting him naked. He asked Juan, whether he would mind to take off his pants. "Didn´t you actually just wanted to make portraits?" he asked. Cris said that he had such a great body and whether they could make a few shots with slip. When Juan had removed his trousers an absolutely sexy jock strap appeared which made Cris actually wonder if he would dare to go even further. In fact, this time Juan needed little persuasion. They took some photos in underwear and Juan seemed to slowly enjoy it. He took more and more sexy poses and finally asked Cris then if maybe it would be a good idea to take of his slip as well.
So Juan took the last piece off and they continued the session, still in daylight. They changed the location and shot in the bed of the birthday child. Juan really had fun! Cris decided to install the flashes and they shot the remaining images with artificial light. For Cris Iris it was extremely unusual, because out of a capricious mood ending up in a proper photo shoot is extremely rare. At the end of the day Juan told me, how much fun it was for him and that he would like to stand again as a model in front of the camera. And so they exchanged email contacts, hoping that at some point we they can have a shooting again - vamos a ver. -BM-
