Simon was just 18 on the day of the shoot, although he comes across as a big strong man in his early twenties. I first met Simon at a street workout competition in a small town about an hour drive outside of Bratislava. He is a very friendly and positive person, very athletic and used to being shirtless or naked around his friends. For some reason Simon and his friend Karol decided not to get completely naked for the photo shoot but I hope they will at some point be comfortable enough to bare all.
Simon and Karol were the first two guys I photographed together in a single shoot and I wasn’t sure how I would split up the time between them. In the end we managed it quite well and I guess I can photograph in similar arrangements in the future.
