A few weeks ago I had a studio booked for 5 hours to do 3 shoots but on the morning of the shoots the middle model had to cancel for personal reasons. So I was left scrambling to find someone to take the spot.

Thankfully Troy took up the challenge and braved his first ever photo shoot. Troy is a mate of mine and in the end I’m glad he did it as the concept worked really well with him, simple as it is, and I’m not sure it would have worked as well with the other guy.

The results of that shoot are out now as this week’s download “The Ball”. As you can see it’s a bit of an exercise in minimalism. A simple white backdrop, a silver fit ball and a tanned nude man with a great butt.
