Shane is so awesome. He is our only guy model this year and we so appreciate him! Matt has known Shane for years through Durango High School. I met Shane last summer when he helped with remodeling our studio. He was such a hard worker (going to football practice before and after coming to the studio – like he is doing again this summer for someone else). Shane has been spending any spare moments he has (which are few) in the mountains, jeeping, etc – so that’s where we wanted to photograph his session. We still wanted the session to be creative and not too traditional, so the weather helped us out, with low lying clouds and dramatic skies. We shot Shane’s session at Haviland Lake, which is always beautiful – but it seemed even more beautiful after the rain. Shane is such a natural in front of the camera and he looked good no matter what he did. We tried looking up some guy model poses while out climbing around the lake but I liked what we came up with on our own better. I hope you love!
