H I M | where nature + man meet

Welcome to HIM, a place to inspire men, to tell stories of models, artists, makers, and business owners.  Similar to my HER page and Corey Lynn Tucker Instagram accounts, I want my work to inspire viewers, to evoke a feeling, to spread passion, joy and most of all love.  People inspire me and so does nature, fitness, fashion, eating healthy, balance, rest and nurturing good relationships that lead to a sustainable way of life.

I was having potluck dinner with friends and one of them said, hey did you know David is modeling, and they showed me his photo.  The last time I saw him, he didn't have a beard.  I love facial hair on men, I think it's so attractive and certainly a lot less maintenance.  David was my landlord over 15 years ago and I hadn't seen him since.  I reached out to him to see if he wanted to collaborate to help me build a brand and inspiring place for men.  I'm so happy he agreed!  I styled the shoot from borrowing my friends yak pelt to shopping at J. Crew and American Eagle.  Oh my other Instagram page, Hunt.Gather is all about food, fashion, styling and foraging.  David is an incredibly talented and handsome gentleman.  I watched him do 5 pull-ups from the beams of my friends lovely Swiss Chalet.  I was so comfortable around him, we had the best time laughing together and shared equal excitement for what was next.  He has been supportive of my work and has given me credit in every single photo he shares to Instagram.  That means a lot to me in today's world.  Oh, and did I mention, he is married, 51 and a NEXT model and he has his own Youtube channel.  Check him out, really, he's got some fantastic information for the guys and he's funny too.

The story I wanted to create shows a self sufficient man, gathering wood for the stove, someone who enjoys reading about ecology and embraces the environment, is one with nature and of course, health and fitness.  He also enjoys good coffee and has a penchant for Game of Thrones and Vikings.  This session is like a seven course meal walking you through a day in the life of David.  I hope you find it as satisfying and delicious as I do.

I can't wait for our next session together, we are already planning something that has to top this session.  It's a tall order, but I know we can do it.
