Introducing Brandon Claybon. He's a model from Memphis, TN. He is featured as a Bleuberry on the Bleu Magazine website (http://www.thebleumag.com). I shot these images for Bleu this summer. Keep an eye open for Brandon. He's an old soul in a young man, he's a hard working, focused, polite and driven dude. He's got a great commercial look and I see the potential for a bright future. What do you think?
In addition to being a visual artist (painting, sculpture, collage and more), I spend the other 50% of my time as a photographer. I shoot landscapes, portraits, still life and fashion. I served as the first photo editor of Bleu Magazine and helped to develop the visual appeal of the now nationally acclaimed mag.
While working at Bleu I began to focus on male fashion photography and as a result I've met some great new talent. As I diversify and enter the world of female fashion and beauty photography, I will continue to shoot men as well. I will use my blog to introduce you to great new talent both signed and unsigned.
This segment is a teaser for a hot new feature on my website called the "It" Boy and Girl. I will feature hot new talent in fashion, music, art and more.
