    This guy is 6'5. He said he was in his off season, and that he is "out of shape".

    Shot in natural light on an overcast/rainy day.

    I used a silver reflector for some fill in this one.

    Damn, great as usual. The light in the second one is beautiful.

    I could only hope to be that “out of shape” someday.

    Great shots, the second as Destin said has great lighting. The pose in the last reminds me slightly of the posters for the pugilist of old.

    Oak should be his middle name. Well done!

    Your details are always so crisp.

    Are you sure his name isn't Zeus? Maybe you should do a shoot with him in a toga.

    Thank you. He's a bodybuilding competitor, and I believe it's one of the competition flexing poses.

    Thank you. I do a bit of extra sharpening once I'm done with all of my other retouching.

    That's not a bad idea...

    The texture in the B&W shots is wonderful. Especially the second one - it's all about texture: the skin, the beard - even the way his hair is combed.

    I just groove on elements like this within portraits. I will never understand the attraction most photographers share of smoothing out skin until it looks like plastic. We are textural creatures on many levels; let it show, bay-bay!!!

    Terrific model, terrific images.
