Ronin, 19, studies economics and lives in a central-northern town in Slovakia. He has many different skills and interests, such as welding, fitness training, calisthenics, freerunning, and he certainly marches to the beat of his own drum. Ronin said he enjoys doing or trying things that are daring and unusual. I suppose doing a nude photoshoot for the first time qualifies as one of those things.
While Ronin is an adventurous guy, I was surprised that he initially seemed worried about traveling to Bratislava, a “big city”. He’s a small town guy, and he did after all need to get up at 4:30 and transfer between two buses and a train just to get to the photoshoot at a reasonable hour. I reassured him it’s super easy and that Bratislava is just a big village and nothing compared to Bangkok or Mexico City.
After finally meeting up with Ronin, everything was smooth sailing. He was a very friendly and comfortable guy in all aspects.
