When I’m not writing, or doing mind-numbing IT work to keep the dog in kibble and to pay the mortgage, I also am trying to build up a catalog of photos of male models for use on our romance novel book covers. This effort has been underway for around four years now and is developing nicely. My work has graced the covers of a good number romance novels and hopefully will continue to do so as I keep growing my collection.
It had been my goal to try to work with at least one new male model each week, doing a mix of G-rated photos for potential use on book covers, but also doing artistically posed nudes as well (obviously not for book covers). But life has intervened and kept me from meeting that goal. I maintain a separate site called BookCoverPhotographer.com to tell potential models about what I do. If you are interested in seeing my collection of photos, please e-mail me at Mike at bookcoverphotographer dot com and I will send you the URL and password to gain access to the full catalog which now numbers several thousand photos.
