I have the model. I have ideas. They just don’t seem to be going together.
Matt is a Sydney guy who I came across a couple of years ago I think through the photography of Luke Austin. I only recently worked up the balls to ask him to model for me.
I pitched one idea but I’m not sure that idea will work any more. It’s one of the origami ideas that I’ve spoken about before but those don’t seem to be working very well so I think I’m abandoning that plan.
The trouble is I just don’t know what to do with him. He says he’s done lots of studio work before but his Instagram is full of location shoots. My natural instinct is to contradict his incredibly strong physique and try and make him look vulnerable but he’s even done a bit of that.
So much confusion!! Please feel free to give me suggestions.
UPDATE: Since I first drafted this email I’ve given it more thought. I think I’m going to get him back in the studio and do what I love to do. I’m going to play with the idea of hiding, obscuring, disguising. Let’s see what happens! Suggestions still welcome.
