Tank Joey

Beauty and Braun - Full Set (Not Safe For Work)

Earlier this year a couple of models came into studio for some figure study work. It ended up being a great collaboration so at the end of the shoot we decided to self-publish a small magazine of the shoot for fun.

Paint Photo Shoot with Tank Joey and Jaclyn (NSFW)

Models Tank Joey and Jaclyn came to the studio last week to have some fun with paint. I started with two large drop cloths to cover the floor and then placed white paper over top for a high key look. For lighting we use 3 lights, 2 lighting the background and a 7' parabolic with diffusion cover as the main light. I wanted to show colour more than muscle which is why I went with the softer look. Paints were finger paints from the local art supply store. Each of us had a couple of ideas and poses in mind, after that we just played with the paints. It really makes my job easier working with two really good models who know how to move and pose and smile, even when the paint is cold. After we did the duo shoot Joey stayed for a bit and we got some extra images as that man's audience are voracious consumers of his media. It was a good night and clean up was far less messy than expected.

Fitness Art with Tank Joey - Maybe NSFW

I'm working on a series of implied nudes of various athletes as a figure study. I'm not sure where it will end up but I'm hoping to shoot it for a few years at least. I had the opportunity to work with local athlete, artist and gym owner Tank Joey who was just finishing up a North American modelling tour. I'm extremely grateful to have worked with such an experienced model for this project and one with as rabid a following as he has. The images turned out great. I really appreciate every athlete who comes out to help with this project.

Below are a few of the images we captured and we'll probably do some limited edition prints of select ones.
