So this man, Jon Kortajarena. Model, actor, all round hot man. I want to photograph him. More than I want to move to France. More than I want to have a successful creative career. More than I want to be alive tomorrow (if I were to photograph him today).

He’s amazing. Versatile, interesting to look at (not just pretty, but alive with character), and Spanish. (The fact that he’s Spanish is definitely a bonus). He’s also an actor (appearing in Tom Ford’s film ‘A Single Man’), and I like models with acting ability. Makes for more creative shoots.

He kind of looks like Robert Pattinson. But better. Someone should tell dear old Rpattz that someone has been doing his look (including the wild hair) but better.

I should warn you: this post is very image heavy. But the images are awesome. Not just because of Jon, but he’s worked with/for some AMAZING photographers and stylists. This guy is a superstar. I want to smooch/shoot him. The relationship would be entirely professional. *cough*

So many ‘shadows covering faces’ in this shoot. I love it! Just goes to show that you can break the rules of photography and still make amazing photographs!

Beautiful styling in this also. Simple, effective. And there’s a ‘pirate’ shirt. If I ever meet a man wearing a pirate shirt, looking this good, you might want to hold me back.

Excellent shoot by Laurence Ellis for Muse magazines. Features Jacques Naude.

Found on the Fasionisto

Found this beautiful yet quite simple shoot from Vman magazine.

Shot by Alexander Huseby. Styled by Nicola Formichetti and features Mathias Lauridsen and Rie Rasmussen.

I like anything with a bit of fantasy in it. There’s some lovely, crazy accessories and clothes in this shoot, and when put into there ‘warehouse’ setting, brings the ‘fantasy’ back to earth.

(Just a warning to readers: my obsession and drive to become an influential ‘male fashion photographer’ is obviously resulting in me posting a lot of male editorials. I hope this is a GOOD thing in your minds!)

Water, light, reflection, movement. But above all, I think there is a certain sensuality that is captured underwater that you can’t get ‘on land’.

I admire underwater photographers a great deal.

After spending the last 24 hours in bed completely and utterly sick, I finally made the effort to get up and do some work. But before I started work, I found an amazing blog post over at The Fashionisto that you should all check out. Amazing lighting and very striking portraits. I won’t repost all of the pictures here, just my favourite. Click the link to see the rest!

I love watching behind the scenes videos of photoshoots. It’s a great opportunity to study the lighting set ups, to see how the team interacts with each other and the subject and how the whole shot comes together.
