Motivation

The other day I posted about my new training regime and the sessions I’m doing with my friend the Personal Trainer. I think I’ve finally found a style of training that really works for me. The workouts he’s giving me are high intensity circuit style of exercises that use the entire body. He focuses very much on functional movement and engaging the core and using all the muscles possible. He.. Read More

Pietro’s Gymspiration

In a very serendipitous turn of fate, a friend of mine needs a new logo. He’s a personal trainer whose style I really click with. The cost of personal training is not something I’ve ever felt able to justify when I can go to the gym and at least maintain the mediocrity I’m used to by myself. If you have loftier goals and want to rock a serious fitness model.. Read More

Seriously messed up!

One of my favourite YouTube channels is that of MarkE Miller and his boyfriend Ethan Hethcote. Like a lot of youtubers lately Mark hasn’t been vlogging as much but I still like it when he does. Last year Mark and Ethan went to a friends house who is a photographer and drag artist and the boys had drag makeup done for the first time. Not only did they look amazing.. Read More

Is that all it takes?

Given how paranoid most guys are in gym locker rooms about anyone seeing their junk you’d be forgiven for thinking that they go to the beach in neck-to-knee swimwear from an era long gone. You’d be wrong. Apparently all it takes for guys to feel comfortable is a tiny little piece of fabric covering their genitals. Australian’s all around the country are fans of speedo style swimwear. Sure there are.. Read More

A whole lot of beautiful, and bootiful

Perusing blogs full of photography, art, travel and general “stuff” as I do, the photos above by the fantastic Rick Day caught my eye, as you would expect them to. Dmytro Paladii is a ballroom dancer now breaking into the modelling world and doing it very, very nicely. Now based in New York, Dmytro is of Ukrainian and Greek origins and I have to say that I find that mix.. Read More

Behind the scenes with Jorge!

As you all know, last weekend I did another shoot with Argentinian Beefcake Jorge. Yesterday I had a day mostly to myself so I decided I’d edit the video together of all the behind the scenes footage. It’s amazing how quickly you can lost an entire day when you are editing footage. It was so much fun. I’m obviously still learning but having a lot of fun picking up new.. Read More

Coffee with a dash of insecurity

This morning I went and met up with a guy that is going to model for me in a part of Sydney that could easily be described as the Gay Ghetto. It’s a lovely leafy harbourside suburb filled with cafes and boutiques. I could never live there because it’s way too overpopulated with “the gays”. I love my suburb full of all sorts of people, the good, the bad and.. Read More

Classic sexiness

After our first shoot months ago with Jorge nude on the beach covered in sand, he and I discussed doing another shoot at some stage. Jorge was keen for a studio shoot and he may have made the mistake of saying something along the lines of “the messier the better.” More fool him. This morning after getting a coffee, Jorge and I, along with a friend Tim who came along.. Read More

Circus sexy

Catching up on my photo editing last weekend I finally got to work on these images of Scott. Scott is an aerial straps performer who I met at my circus school. To do aerial straps you need strength and flexibility and when it’s done well it is beautiful and very impressive to watch. What was also impressive to watch was how at ease Scott was naked in front of the.. Read More

Lucas in Ropes

When I do a photo shoot, I am usually really excited to come home and start editing straight away. Lately I’ve been so busy on weekends and in the evenings that I haven’t had any time to do editing. Just over a month ago I did a photo shoot that was one of the most demanding shoots both for myself and for the model. Sydney was in the midst of.. Read More

Running with horses

Back in June last year I posted about Nick Turner and his beautiful self portraits, lots of the with horses. Nick has now been profiled by art website Twyla exploring the connection he has with horses and his affinity with Iceland. Needless to say when I’m in Iceland in a little over three months I’ll be running around nude but not with the horses like this. Nick’s face is one.. Read More

A good boy scout

The cliched motto of the boy scouts is to be prepared. Now I’ve never been a boy scout and quite often I’ve been very unprepared. Never disastrously but not always to my benefit either. For the last three months I’ve been what you could say is OVER prepared. Like a lot of other gay men in Sydney I’m taking part in the clinical study of PrEP, also known as Pre-exposure.. Read More

Training inspiration

My usual batch of Youtubers all seem to be posting a little bit less frequently at the moment so I’ve been finding myself searching for other things to watch. Of course when you watch one thing you get bombarded with suggested videos of a similar nature. I posted a video of two hotties doing kilted yoga a couple of weeks ago and then all of a sudden I was recommended.. Read More

Oops…

On the mornings that I go to the gym I set my alarm for 5.35am. It goes off, I swear at it then turn it off. From there I stumble to the kitchen and make my pre-workout drink because I’m not training without something to wake me up. Then it’s in to the bathroom to have a pee then clean my teeth. Then I get dressed and head out the.. Read More

Just don’t

Today I saw something that shocked me. Not in a “where is the justice in the world” level of atrocity but more of a “wow, sit down and shut up buddy” kind of thing. A photographer that I’ve not long been following on Instagram posted a screen shot of an exchange he’d had with a model. The model was essentially asking the photographer to cover at least half of a.. Read More
