DW Chase's Samurai Adventure in Japan (Beautiful Mag)

Beautiful Magazine has just published a new article on my photoshoot with photographer Buddy Jiang in Japan. This was actually the first shoot while I was there and we went out to Jogashima Island. I must give all the credit, and I mean all of it to Buddy Jiang who is very young but so talented. He picked the location, the killer in-vogue Samurai Underwear and managed to make Japan look like it wasn't full of people (which is very difficult).

These types of photoshoots are more like memories of being in that killer location on a trip of a lifetime.

TOKYO JAPAN photoshoot with Joey Wong for TOOT UNDERWEAR

My first modeling experiance in Asia
was certainly an interesting one. I landed in Tokyo Japan, 6 months after the devistating earthquake. I have become a huge fan of the underwear and swimwear designs of TOOT a Japanese company making waves in men's undergarmet design.

Check out all their cool styles on their website HERE

I met up with photographer Joey Wong who is actually from Portland Oregon who is living and working in Tokyo. He brought along photographer Jim Ollett, also from Portland who assisted with the technical aspect of the shoot. Wong and Ollett has both worked with some models I knew from the west coast.

I wanted to find a cool spot for the shoot, and we had been looking for interesting ally ways with those traditional Japanese red lanterns. Wong found the perfect spot in Shinbashi. The location ended up being quite the public ally, as we had people from both sides walking through the photoshoot. In Tokyo, you cannot go anywhere without people in every corner. So up and down the shorts went everytime someone walked on set.

My only regret is I wish I had more of the Toot underwear for the shoot, but it was difficult to find the more interesting and newer styles around the city.

 The Male Magazine Blog ETHAN SAYS featured the photos and article on their site, you can see more HERE.

Before we shot the TOOT underwear shots, we did some practice shots in another location where we got kicked out.
