mmsqgo asked: Hi, what a journey for me, this year is my first time I see Warwick Rowers, they are truly amazing and it's like you took out of my head my thoughts and put it in front of me, I just can not stop looking at them. Can't wait for the movie and what a dream job you have, I should have follow my dream when I was bit younger ;) I love your photography, all the best. Marcin
What a very kind message!! Thank you so much. It is always a thrill to hear when people enjoy my work, and feel it speaks to them. The movie is very nearly ready, and I think you will love it. It allows us to get a better sense of who the rowers are as athletes and as people. And of course we have lots of beautiful footage of the naked calendar shoot. For me, it is the context that makes imagery erotic, so this is a very powerful combination!
Thanks again for your comments, and I hope you will enjoy the film!
Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.
Today sees the launch of the Warwick Rowing calendar 2013, which is good news in itself. But this year there’s also good news for our friends who like the ladies, because the women have decided to challenge the men with a calendar of their own!
Both calendars are available from the Warwick Rowing shop at http://www.warwickrowing.org, so why not get over there and place your order?
The print calendars are limited edition, so it’s worth getting in quick - we’ve already sold more than a third of each run through pre-orders.
Later you’ll be able to buy digital downloads of the calendar, a range of bonus shots in black and white and colour, and last but not least a full colour, full HD film of the men’s team as they make their calendar. Last year’s film was well received, but this year’s film will blow it out of the water…
Click here for a range of deals on the men’s calendars, including the opportunity to meet real live naked male rowers, or go here to like their Facebook pages here:
My friends tell me I’ve always loved playing the victim, but it’s particularly enjoyable when I’m a victim of my own success.
I promised to bring you all new pictures from the above sequence of two of the @naked_rowers getting splattered in paint, every time their Crowdfunder pitch raised another £100. Hands up, I’ve failed!
The problem, as you will see if you click on the link in the source box below, is that the Crowdfunder pitch has been a runaway success, raising over £2700 already! Well done, you guys! And thank you from all of us for your support - the funds are going to a good cause.
And the good news is that you can still pick up the whole range of rewards the boys are offering. So why not grab a bargain (or maybe even a rower, if you go to the live shoot) and help support a struggling team that still finds time to do charity work on top.
And what I’m going to do is see if I can create a gif out of these images, which I will post here when the total hits £5000!
I’m up a mountain in Cyprus, catching up on various bits and pieces in between trips to the beach. I know, sucks to be me.
One of the things I’m doing is sifting through some of my recent shoots, and I thought I would bring you this early pic from a shoot I did with Joe, a new model sent to me by Paulo Ribeiro. Joe has just turned eighteen, and I think he has a big future.
It’s always extraordinary when you meet someone who is a natural. Joe is one of them. He just kept giving me great shots, so I asked him how long he’d been modelling. I knew he was a new face at Paulo Ribeiro, so I assumed he must have paid his dues and got his chops somewhere else. ”This is my fourth shoot,” he replied. What, ever? Yes. Then how the hell do you know how to do all this, I wanted to ask. But I didn’t, because I immediately knew that Joe was just born to be in front of a camera, and for him it’s instinctive.
I also asked him if his hair was natural. He had the most beautiful blond streaks I’d ever seen. It turned out it was, and I asked him if he knew how much money people pay to get exactly that look. He laughed, slightly embarrassed. ”Yeah, that’s what my mum always says.”
