One of my favorite set of photos from return to key west are the ones we did in a friend's outdoor shower--one of the great benefits of life in the sub tropics. I think we hit it when the light was just right, too. More shots here (NSFW).
The photos I did in
May with model Scott Wilson for reFRESH Magazine have had several lives. First
they were used in a spread in reFRESH, then they had a second life on blogs like
DudeTube and Beautiful, who crafted a whole new storyline with some exclusive
shots I shared with them.
At the request of
the Island House my designer
co-hort Greg Needham
and I went ahead and created a whole new layout and concept for room103keywest.com, and greatly expanded
the original design. We also took 601 of the thousands of photos we shot and
compressed them into this sexy little two minute and thirteen second film. We chose not to
include any music but a fun little thing I like to do is to just manually synch
the film up with something tasty; Prince’s ‘The Ballad of Dorothy Parker’ works
nicely, as does Justin Timberlake’s ‘What Goes Around (Comes Around)'.
installment of the sexy print soap Beautiful has created using
outtakes from my ‘room 103’ story for reFRESH is online now. Midway through the
shoot I realized that this fictional big city media dude played by Scott Wilson
was having a rather lonely trip--napping alone, sunbathing alone, swimming
alone, showering alone--so I recruited a couple friends to come in and keep him
company at the Island House.
Most of these shots didn’t make it into the final spread but Beautiful loved them
and now, in this little spin-off trip, he isn’t so lonely
My photo essay on a dreamy, sex-drenched
weekend at the Island House for
reFRESH has taken on a life
of its own online. The spread and shots got mentioned on a ton of blogs which was
really cool including my beloved DudeTube
as well as Kenneth in the 212,
who made the little collage below that I think is pretty spiffy. Now Beautiful has created a three part
weekly series complete with an original narrative,
inspired by some additional shots I’d sent them. I'm not quite sure what they're doing but I'm pretty excited to be entering the realm of the telenovela. That debuts Tuseday the 22nd
and will continue for the following two Tuesdays. There are also more outtakes
at Beautiful and I’ve got more shots here
and here, as well as a 'room 103' album to your right.
