Samuel, 22, studies at a sports college in Bratislava. We first met at a parkour jam session about a year and a half before the first shoot (in Fall 2018.)
I actually photographed Sam a couple of times beforehand. Initially he was a bit shy and definitely not willing to show everything. It took some time to get to know each other and to build trust before he agreed to do the first fully nude photo shoot.
During the 2018 shoot, Samuel had a long beard (the “Viking” look) although his pubes were shaved off. During the most recent 2019 shoot, Samuel’s bears was shaved off and I asked Samuel to grow his pubes. Now he’s growing the beard again.
