Selection: Chad Glenn by Carl Proctor
It was back in 2009 when profiling model and dancer Mark MacKillop that I first discovered the imagery of Atlanta's photographer Carl Proctor. Carl has been both generous and supportive, sharing his work and stories on a regular basis with myself and the readers of FH.
It is always a pleasure to assemble a post featuring Carl's work and his work with model Chad Glenn was no exception. I think two of the factors that make featuring Carl's images so stimulating and interesting is the variety of selections within his model portfolios. Carl skillfully blends the erotic with the artistic and ensures the models he shoots end up with a selection of shots from classic, dramatic portraits through fashion, fetish and incredible nudes.
In the case of personal trainer and image consultant Chad Glenn, choosing shots was a difficult pleasure. Not only were there literally hundreds of shots to go through, there were dozens of different set ups, looks and moods to choose from. I tried to pick a variety of my favorites to showcase the variety of incredible images Carl creates within his shoots.
Working as a personal trainer keeps Miami Beach's Chad Glenn 'shoot ready' at all times. Chad's 'shoot ready' body has appeared among other place, in Exercise For Men, Playgirl and his work with Dylan Rosser was featured in Dylan's RED.

'It’s always exciting when you’ve been an avid fan of someone for years, and then finally get to meet them, not to mention photograph them. But it’s even more rewarding if the results are special and it turns out that the model is a terrific person as well. His work as a busy fitness trainer and image consultant are reflected in his photos. I think his body fat was minus 20! He was one of the hardest working models I’ve worked with and takes his modeling and appearance very seriously.'
