About the Book
... updated & expanded edition... Newly republished in 2011 with sexy new content added from Cason's first 2-man shoot...
Cason is a dream to collaborate with! Not merely handsome, and with a great body, he is graceful and imaginative. He is a dancer, an actor, a goof, and willing to do anything for a shot.
I'm not sure I've ever met another model as comfortable in his own skin. From the first frame of our first shoot Cason was nude. Well, that's not entirely true - I did ask him to put something on for one brief series - he had nothing with him except what he wore to the shoot, so that's what we used, including the red Keds... Being nude allows Cason's physique and grace to really shine through though, so that's perfect - it allows us to admire and marvel at the structure and muscle tone that makes it all possible.
These images are the results of several delightful collaborations in 2008, plus a playful shoot with his friend Damon in 2010. Enjoy!
Photography is my art, and one branch of that art is working with the male physique. The shapes, contours, tones, and textures. A sculptural element. How light plays across a muscle, or reflects in the hair. A glint in the eye. A playful moment. How the figure relates to, or contrasts with, the surroundings. The mimicking of shapes. The strength of man mirrored in the environment - the relationships that are captured. A moment in time. A sexy moment in time... I've been lucky... my work has captured some attention recently. There have been a couple of exhibits, inclusion is several anthology photography books, and even a few Magazine covers. Don't get me wrong - I love that attention, but it's not why I create. I create for me, and for the models. I create to push myself - to think about things differently, to see things in a new light. And now I am creating for you - I hope you enjoy this look into my world! -Mark
