blue eyed Todd contacted me after being recommended by another model named
Aron. He wanted some new photos taken
and at 6'3" and almost 250 lbs. he was more than big enough to be one of
Big Don's Boys. He brought along enough clothes for some good looks without
bringing over too many outfits. Ooh those clothes horses! This is a two hour
photo shoot not a three month trip to Europe!|
Todd is very sweet and is good
with taking direction. The shirtless cowboy shots, especially, came out really
great ... and all we did is run outside and start snapping photos! Then
I took the good ones and very carefully cleaned up the sloppy lighting and other
boo boos you'll never know about. Hooray for Adobe Photoshop! I would much rather
clean up a good photo than spend a lot of time arranging lights and levels and
making the subject feel like a guinea pig. They photograph like guinea pigs too!
Fortunately I ended up getting a lot of great images of Todd. I do wish I had
lights set up indoors because I don't think the photos on my bed really capture
how huge this guy is. He sprawls! Shoe size? 12. He's a big top.
moved here from New York and is currently managing his apartment complex in
mid West Hollywood, aka near La Cienega Boulevard. I thought that stretch of
La Cienega (Spanish for "the swamp") was only known for it's fine
restaurants on nearby restaurant's row. The hotel down the block is famous
for housing big music acts. Todd told me "All the American
Idol 2007 contestants were staying there. I can hear paparazzi at night
and celebrities passing outside my window. It gets annoying!"
