Gay Amateur Male Model Aiden
Aiden… again.. not his real name — came to the studio late in the afternoon. Surprisingly everyone arrived on time. Aiden actually showed up earlier than he needed. He seemed very keen to have his photos taken.
We didn’t actually find Aiden through the ads that we placed in the LA Weekly.. He used to be a bartender at the Abbey in West Hollywood. Somehow through word of mouth he found out the we were looking for some guys to pose for us and he was more than willing to show off.
You can see a bit of the outside of the studio at the beginning of this video clip. It wasn’t anything fancy.. but it had everything that we needed. The location was perfect and none of the models had any problem getting to the studio.
Aiden was very easy to work with and seemed to enjoy posing for us. The photographer and I weren’t as professional as we would have liked. You can see one of the gels falling off of the lights during the shoot. No one was injured… it was more embarrassing than anything.
I had some t-shirts with the Gaydar logo printed on them. I remember driving all over Los Angeles trying to find the printing place.. It was very far away from the studio. Luckily the one size fits all t-shirts fit.
Aiden was 22 at the time of these photos. Very eager and he seemed to enjoy just hanging out. Most of the guys that I have photographed are like that. They just kinda wanna hang out and have no problem taking direction.
Everything (aside from the gel falling off) went very smoothly. I think about a year after these pictures were taken he did a model session for Lucas out in NYC. I hope he is doing well.. Sometimes you wonder what happened to the models that you worked with over the years. Anyway.. I think his pictures turned out well. Dontcha think ?!
