'I suppose if Mr. Six Pack were to take off the majority of his clothes in front of me, I’d have no choice but watch. I’m just saying I don’t seek out that form of entertainment, by which I mean I’m not willing to pay for it. My fantasies are more along the lines of watching a hot guy vacuum and empty the kitty litter box'
Whenever I spend time with the work of James Spada, I am always impacted by the richness and texture he manages to capture. Although the models he captures are beautifully modern, through the artist lens, there is an rich and classical feel, a regal elegance that is usually reserved for dignitaries and royalty.
I love that although his images are clear, they are not overly lit which adds the texture in each shot. James incorporate lush fabrics and patterns which surround his subjects adding to sumptuous vibe. James is a master at draping the human body on, and over furniture in both an erotic, distinctly designed way. The men are not just posing for a photographer, they are sending a message to the viewer. With their eyes and with their bodies, they send a clear invitation, and RSVP that is impossible not to respond to.
James Spada's depictions of the lavish and opulent is not restricted to only his imagery. James is a well known internationally best-selling biographer of the rich and famous including; Barbra Streisand, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Redford, John and Caroline Kennedy, Princess Grace, Bette Davis, Peter Lawford, Bette Midler, Jackie Onassis, Julia Roberts, Ronald Reagan, and many others others. You can check out his books, including his photography books on Amazon HERE:
Sumptuous and plush certainly describe Tyler Brown, the subject of this series from SpadaPhoto. Tyler is a multi-sport athlete with a natural physique and an all-American appeal. The 23 year old Southern California model has perfected both the come hither look, and the come hither pose. Tyler indeed has the look of the all-American guy, but behind his sexy grin, and behind those beautiful eyes, a sexy mischievous Tyler side is also keenly present making him even more appealing.

I have never actually watched their TLC show, The Little Couple, I have seen Jennifer Arnold & Bill Klei on talk shows enough to like them, and feel how authentic they come across. Last week, after seeing a commercial for the new season, I now want to.
Although I detest music videos, I do love the powerful combination that can be created by matching just the right images, with just the right music. The promo for the season, matches scenes from the show, with Christina Perri's song Human and together, the pack an emotionally charged punch. I could not find the actual ad (if anyone can help, please let me know), but the video about is basically the video with Christina's song below acting as the background. The promo instantly connects you with the family, and the music draws you in, wanting you to see, and find out more.
