In the past I have written a few times lamenting the modesty of the models here in Sydney. In the last year or so I have actually had a few models happy to do full frontal. It’s a nice change and adds  a little flexibility to what can be shot.

A model that I have worked with in the past year is up for the challenge of doing something even more challenging. He’s done some straight porn before and was going to do some work with Sean Cody, gay for pay, but that fell through. My challenge is now how to do something beautiful and creative but also erotic or sensual. He is more than happy to be photographed with a boner. I don’t want to do it for the sake of doing it. Without bragging, I’m actually really proud of the quality of the work I’ve been producing lately and I don’t want the to diminish the artistic nature or technical quality of the image just to include a raging boner.

Quite often gay erotic art loses the art. I see it in the Pic Of The Day competition on Model Mayhem every day when photos get lots of votes that are absolute technical and compositional disasters but they have a guy with a big wang in them so people vote for them in droves leaving the much more accomplished photos languishing. I want people to respond to whatever I create with this model for it’s aesthetic finesse, not just a throbbing boner. I have no problem with porn and I have even shot some and may do again, but that’s not what the aim of this project is.
