A PnV/Fashionably Male Exclusive Feature
By Tom Peaks @MrPeaksNValleys
What happens when a 6’4” tall blonde ray of sunshine decides to cut loose and have fun? Well, it might look a lot like the brand new shoot of hunk Tyler Ellis by LA-based photographer Phil Limprasertwong.
Recently, you met Tyler here on Fashionably Male with a feature interview and outdoor shoot (see link near bottom of page to view that article). This time, we go indoors with the fun-loving hottie from Vermont in “Censored: Tyler Ellis At Play.”
Phil talked about what it was like to work with Tyler. “He brought a lot of fun and positive energy to set and was incredibly easy to work with. He does ‘sexy’ very well, so I wanted to keep that vibe for our shoot together.” He continued, “I love that he’s so comfortable in his own skin and isn’t afraid to try new things.”
Phil explained that sometimes models can be too reserved and tense and that the shoot results in bland images, and a one-note face in every frame. Tyler, he commented, certainly doesn’t have that problem.
The California-based model came to set prepared, having totally grasped the moodboard and executing Phil’s vision perfectly. Moodboards, according to Phil, “are basically a study guide given to models to help them understand what’s expected of them for the shoot. Surprisingly,” Phil added, “a lot of models don’t even look at the moodboards or study them and come to set unprepared.”
Phil certainly expects big things in the future for the 24 year old actor/model.
As for sexy Tyler, who was inspired to model by his hairstylist back in Vermont, he now loves living the shirtless life in warm Los Angeles.
And Tyler admitted there’s a 10 out of 10 chance he’d shoot with Phil again, as he had a blast collaborating. “Phil used some lighting that I had never seen before, and it made the shots really stand out.”
In addition, Tyler reflected about his shoot with Phil, “He’s very easy to shoot with and makes you feel comfortable.”
Tyler explained his view of posing for sexy photo features. “The very first shoots I did were posing pretty much nude. It was a little weird at first, but I always knew my limits and I have a clear line that I won’t cross. As long as I stay congruent with my standards and morals, then I am pretty much game for whatever it is I am shooting. In the end, it’s just a body and I think everyone should be proud of theirs and shouldn’t feel ashamed to show it off.”
