A Thousand Images Later: Benjamin Godfre by Carl Proctor
It is always a pleasure to work on a post featuring the work of Carl Proctor. When I first profiled Carl's work earlier in the year, (Visual Stimulation) I touched upon Carl's journey through experiencing fantasies to now capturing them through his lens. I am sure that capturing the scorching image of Benjamin Godfre is a fantasy many of us share.
Benjamin continues to strengthen his Benjaminion Nation, something I wrote about a couple of weeks ago in a story featuring his work with Jon Seneca (The Serious Case of Benjamin Godfre).
'I LOVE my fans and they mean a lot to me. It’s not even work, it’s play. I like to cultivate relationships and I want to see how huge we can grow as a group! Everyone should be having a blast right along side with me!'
Carl and Benjamin recently met up for an intense two day marathon of shooting. Carl's ability to skillfully capture moments, and most beautifully moments in motion, is creatively and erotically front and center in his recent work with Benjamin. I thank Benjamin for once again helping out and supporting FH showcasing his work. Benjamin loved not only working with Carl but the results of their two days together.
'Carl is a great guy. He is efficient and professional. He also has a great vocabulary and a kind soul.'
Benjamin flew into Atlanta from LA to meet up with Carl for the two day shoot. Carl says when he got to the airport it was no surprise to see Benjamin walking towards him with skateboard in hand. 'He's a skateboard-aholic. Must go with the California lifestyle!' After checking into his hotel the two got right to work and it was no surprise to Carl that Benjamin was sporting his trademark Timoteo's. Carl says that Benjamin always keeps his fans and supporters in mind when working and does all he can to ensure he gives them his best.
'His extensive modeling experience and high energy, coupled with an unrivaled sense of humor made the 2 day shoot go by very quickly. Over a thousand images later, I dropped him back off at the airport for his evening flight into the sunset back to La La Land.'
I have not seen all one thousand, but thanks to Carl, have seen quite a few, and look forward to presenting much more of his work with Benjamin over the next few weeks!
