West Phillips, a friend of mine who has photographed me before, has a new project he is working on. It’s a photography book that is going to be featuring Asian male models.
Here’s a little bit about his project:
This book will be a sort of ‘best of’ to show what I’ve amassed so far and how my style and art has evolved since the beginning. The book will include models from China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Australia and the USA. In addition to some photos that are classic favorites, there will also be many never-before seen photos and behind-the-scenes shots. I will also include some back stories with some of the photos to tell the viewer how the photo or the moment came to be. And since I’ve had many, many requests about this in the past – yes, this book will also contain some nudity.
Here is what he needs:
I have most of the images for the book already, but still have a few more shoots with some great new models to accomplish! For the immediate future, I need to cover travel and shooting expenses, as well as labor costs for compiling and designing the book. The longer term need is the actual printing cost, which will be the majority of the amount gathered. I plan to self-publish the book and then find a suitable printer to turn it into the beautiful, full-sized finished product I can hold in my hands! It will be a true labor of love and long hours of work, but the end result is one I’m sure to be proud of and proud to share!
