This is the kind of photo collection that you just wish could continue forever. I don’t know how Rick Day ever manages to put his camera down when he has a gorgeous hunk like Arthur Keller naked on his bed. I would be clicking away for hours, however long it takes to max out on memory or have to take a break to recharge the batteries!
Come to think of it, I don’t know how Rick Day manages to shoot guys like Arthur Keller naked without wanting to do a whole lot more than just take pics.
I’ve seen a few collections of pics by this awesome photographer before, in the same setting. So I’m guessing he has a bed set up for the guys to use. It’s almost like they just stayed over after a party or something, and happened to be there in the morning ready for him to photograph as they rouse from their slumber.
Okay, I’m probably being too romantic about it all. There’s probably a process of “his people” talking to “their people”, contracts to sign, agreements to be made, then a lot of instruction during the shoot too. But it’s nice to have the romantic thought of it all being spontaneous!
I think the fact that I’ve imagined that romantic image of it suggests that the photography works, that the intended message has been delivered. I love these pics so much!
