Skin is skin, and I know skin. You also have to have a general understanding of how muscles work and how to manipulate them to get take an image from ordinary to something a little more. Everyone that knows my work knows I typically photograph women – in fact, this is only the second male model I have ever photographed, and I think it worked out quite nicely.
I aspire to work in fashion advertising, photographing for Calvin Klein and similar fashion giants that understand photographers like me and use us to photograph skin – and I would like to think they appreciate the art of it as much as we do, but I completely understand that the purpose is to sell.
So…Calvin Klein, if you read this…I’m interested.
