Jack & Jack
I have always considered myself gay friendly. I have gay friends! Dave (not his real name) was referred to me by another photographer who was not comfortable with the assignment. Without hesitation, I said of course, no problem.
After all, I had worked with couples before; however, these were my first two guys.
When I found myself in the same room with two VERY virile men being VERY romantic, I had a “HOLY CRAP” moment. My next thought was, “Ed, You are either an artist or a lecher. Which is it? Think shadow, form and composition. These guys are depending on you to be a professional.” After that I settled down and they were able to choose 44 unique images for me to print and assemble two leather bound books.
A few years back Dave suggested that I use this image to promote my work whenever I liked.
