I was recently commisioned to shoot the photos for writer Lamar Ariel. His latest book , Ready To Male, is a collection of letters that explore male sexuality. Lamar was very nice to work with... he created an atmosphere that was comfortable and relaxing. I felt comfortable and relaxed so thats how i shot him. I shot him in his apartment. I used mostly natural light to give this soft relaxed feeling . I wanted the viewer ofthe images to feel as comfortable as I felt.
I'll tell you one thing tho...that cab ride from bedstuy to 168th wasn't playing no games on my wallet. I almost passed out when dude told me " that'll be $41 dollars". from now on imma include transportation in my rate. lol
