Alex, 20, works mostly as a bartender in a town near Bratislava. He visits Germany each year during the summer through an exchange program and we managed to squeeze in a photoshoot just a few days before his trip.
Alex was a bit hesitant to pose nude when I first contacted him. He had an uncomfortable experience with a prior photographer and I did my best to reassure him that I wouldn’t push him into doing anything beyond photographing nudes.
Once we got to know each other a bit, Alex felt very comfortable and everything went very smoothly. We went for a beer afterwards and Alex told me that he had a great time and that he really enjoyed the photoshoot.
