“I so rarely shoot agency models,” photographer Dusty St. Amand tells Queerty. “The men I shoot are generally just the men in my life–lovers, friends, or people who I become intrigued by and feel I must have a memento of.”
Dusty is based in New York City, though he recently published a fine arts photography book called “Of Messages and Men: Los Angeles”, showcasing models he photographed in Southern California.
“The experience of the shoot and the images that come later are both very personal, so I have to feel connected to the people,” he continues. “And I think the ease that generally emerges allows me to capture images of seduction. I tend to click the button right when I have them at their most vulnerable state.”
