Nerd Boy

It's been a while since I've posted a new blog or a series of images, as I've been taking some time off from the modeling world to enjoy family and friendships.  Also, I've been wrapping up my modeling bootcamp session, which included putting on muscle weight throughout the fall/winter months.  I'm now in slim-trim mode to carve out that muscle.  It's really not that significant, but I'm hoping to see the results of my efforts this spring when everything begins to show more prominently.


That being said, I decided to do a little concept shoot by reuniting with Will Matias of Saitam Photography.  I'm calling it "Nerd Boy," something I was referred to a lot in high school.  As a victim of bullying myself, I find this series metaphoric for those who experience the same troubles I had while I was growing up, being the nerdy kid with big glasses for example.  It's funny how some things just never change.  However, I'm in full accordance with the "it gets better" message that's spreading across the world, and this series is intended as irony, a mocking of my former high school classmates who thought I wouldn't amount to much.

Nothing fancy, nothing shirtless, nothing too revealing - just a simple bookworm concept with a white t-shirt and blue jeans.  I'm very pleased with the simplicity we achieved here and feel the images turned out better than expected!  EthanSays felt charmed by the series and posted the entire set on its blog - stop by and check out the spread here.

This 2011 debut kicks off what I hope to be an exciting modeling year for me.  Stay tuned...

Updated Digitals

New year, new polaroids!  I'm in pursuit of the ultimate portfolio!  Well, at least I'm going to try.  Special thanks to Kai Jankovic for being oftentimes harsh and uber-critical but always helpful in his advice and steering of my modeling progress.  Per his suggestion, I updated my digital portfolio to include these shots.  I'm hoping to have these sent to the professional biosphere in the near future for potential gigs and go-sees.  Wish me luck!
