Hunter 2

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Hunter for a couple of years now.  The shot of him sitting on a roof, feet dangling as he looks onto Austin’s skyline is still a favorite image of mine.  We shot this session about a year ago after Cover Male sent me some of their jockstraps.

Hunter is available in the premium print edition of EXHIBIT M available now at Blurb.com


Another set done for vol 2 of EXHIBIT M. Wish I could show the rest but instagram wouldn’t like it. 😉


This shot didn’t make the final cut of EXHIBIT M Vol 1. but the hotter ones did.  #OnSale #Thursday

Patrick Mark - Rush-10

It really is amazing what facial hair does for a guy’s look.  When I first saw Rush he was thin and clean shaven with a portfolio focused on fashion work.  We chatted about setting up a shoot however it wasn’t until a few years later that we synced up for a session.  By that time he was rocking killer facial hair and a stronger build.  Throw in the engaging eye contact and even simple shots like this have a sensuality that is palpable.  Btw, I don’t think I’ve seen a sleeveless tee look sexier.

Patrick Mark - Jerry-12

Over the past two years, Jerry and I have talked many times about doing a shoot and one cold morning in Dallas we finally made it happen.

When I’m not in Austin, I do most of my shoots in hotel suites and it’s back-to-back sessions from check-in to check-out.  I had Jerry scheduled early in the morning on my last day which was tough for him – he’s a bartender with a really late shift.  He finally made it in and we rushed to get in two shoots before my check out time.

Jerry’s a nice guy to work with and takes direction really well.  The second layout which you will see in the premier issue of Exhibit M, my self-published male model magazine due out later this month, required more thoughtful posing and he nailed it.

We wrapped with 30 minutes to spare, just enough time to for me to pack equipment, shower and hit the road back to Austin.

PHOTOG TIP:  I find morning light is the best time to shoot guys with great eyes.  Big windows bring out the natural color beautifully.

Patrick Mark - Clifton




When you live in Austin, it’s easy to appreciate a nice body and excellent tattoo work.  Model Clifton Mooney has both.  I felt like most of the images in his port focused on his amazing body art and I wanted to bring your attention to his eyes and strong looks.

You can see in the last two shots below that Clifton is a perfectly manicured man.  Asking to muss his hair up made him a tiny bit uncomfortable but there is something sexy about the texture that I wanted to come thru for a few shots.

You won’t miss out on seeing his entire tatt work.  More of Clifton is in the premiere issue of my ExhibitM magazine due out this month.
