This photograph of Sean was taken March 5, 2005 in the studio. This and others from that same shoot are posted in the gallery entitled "Iron Man" on my main website, however this is one of my favorites from the shoot.

Sean was a real pleasure to work with, an unassuming man and an athlete with natural ability as a physique model.

Sometimes a model has very little sense of their own grace and the photographer needs to exert total control over their positioning. Unfortunately that can easily lead to a downward spiral of creativity. The model wrongly assumes the photographer wants something he cannot understand and ceases to participate in the shoot so the total responsibility for creativity falls on the photographer, who is already occupied with lighting, composition and the technical details. When you find a model like Sean who can comfortably contribute to the art from the moment he walks in the door as well as amiably take direction, it's a rare treasure.
