Kauai photoshoot with Charlie Valentine

My third visit to the state of Hawaii took me to the oldest island Kauai, nown for its rainly climate and lush preserved rainforrests. It was hard finding someone to work with on the Island but when I saw Charlie Valentine's work on Model Mayhem (back in Jan, when I was looking) I knew he was the dude I wanted to work with. It's always great for me finding these up & coming photographers on the brink of great things and throwing them a little bit of a challenge.

After pestering the young Valentine for a few months he finally agreed to work with me, and he choose a location on the west where I was staying (which is thevery dry side of Kauai). There was a beach called Glass Beach where tiny little shards of colored glass mixed in with the and made for a very interesting beach.

Valentine and I worked with a few dfifferent outfits, as I quickly changed on the beach, we shot until the beautiful Hawaiin sun went down and I had one more great photoshoot in the land of Aloha. Also thanks for the guys at Ethan Says for publishing the exclusive images!

2nd shoot of 2012 / 2nd shoot with Zest Photography
The male model blog Homotrophy just published the newest DW Chase photoshoot by Texas photography Zest Photography. DW Chase worked with Zest back in 2006 in North Carolina. Six years later both have matured and live in Texas where they decided to work together again, this time on the beaches of Galveston in chilly February.

See the first time they worked together...
