~Tlaloca did an exceptional dry pastel painting of it here

Used for the cover of Men In Chains #1: Born in Chains by Caris Roane.

I couldn't come up with a name for this image. I started typing and went "absolute... er...". I couldn't come up with something to describe it...

Why? Because I've been DYING to upload it as it's, by far, my favourite shot from the set. I'm SO happy with it and I'm elated to finally share it with you guys.



Model: Morné van den Berg
Make-up and Hair: Stavvie Georgakis
Location: Studio, Johannesburg
Listening To: Deep Forest

More info about the shoot here

Would you mind if I used some of your photographs in my non-profit graphic designing? I really love your shots and they would be perfect as book covers. But only if it's okay with you. I won't be making any money off of it and it's just for my own hobby but they will be shown so just wondering... c:

Thanks for asking, but unfortunately they're not available. A lot of these pics, including this one, have been used for book covers already and they are off-limits. If you are interested in using any of my shots for book covers, please drop me a note and we can talk about cost etc. 

Thanks,
Johann.

Wowser! How the hell did I miss this one? :drool: I may have to try drawing this one on black paper some time soon if you don't mind??Never really have done male models or used black paper with color pencils...so may be a challenge on both parts. haha

Whuuut!? You've never seen it? Getting this one printed out HUGE to put somewhere in our house. It's one of my all-time favourite shots :)

Coincidentally, it was bought for a book cover not so long ago :)

This is definitely among my favourite photographs of men I've ever seen. Something about the light fall and emotion makes this incredible. I'm a traditional artist and this would be so challenging to draw. I wish you had a stock account as well.

This photo's just stunning. I love the pose, I love his body, I love the reflection on the chain - I simply love it! I'll probably use this as a ref in the future if its okay with you :)

First thing I thought was, "wow, amazing contrast!" the colours, the sharpness of the chains and the jeans contrasting the softness of Morne's body is just really eyecatching. Great shot.
