TREVOR ADAMS IS ONE HELL OF A MALE MODEL. MUCH SOUGHT AFTER HE HAS WORKED WITH MORE THAN A HANDFUL OF INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED PHOTOGRAPHERS IN HIS MODELING CAREER WHICH ALREADY SPANS MORE THAN 10 YEARS. WE HAVE BEEN SO LUCKY TO 'HAVE' TREVOR ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS ALREADY, BUT ONE CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH OF HIM. SO IF HE IS OFFERED NOT ONCE, NOT TWICE BUT THREE TIMES IN ONE AND THE SAME SHOOT, COULD WE REALLY REFUSE?
Trevor Adams is the living proof that one doesn't have to live in the big 'modelling' cities, nor be repped by a talent agency, or that it's ok to have adult oriented photos and still make name for yourself. Adam lives in Houston, Texas, has been modelling independently for more than 10 years now and is known for both his fitness and fashion oriented work as well as his more erotic, sexual and body portraits. Despite what his pictures may convey, Trevor is actually rather shy and modest. OK, I can hear you thinking "really?" I mean, someone who has such a large amount of photos taken of himself, how can he be modest? Truth is, besides the fact that Trevor Adams is simply a man who appeals to a large audience, he also finds much satisfaction in the simple fact of documenting his life and physical progress through photographs.
Trevor Adams modelling career is entirely hobby-based. Meaning, Trevor does not work professionally as a model. However, with his huge experience and knowledge, he does have some very specific requests when it comes to modelling and working with photographers. For example, Trevor works exclusively with the industry's top photographers. They do not have to be professional, but they also shouldn't be 'amaterus'. Meaning, Trevor seeks progress. Both in his own modelling and physical development as in the artistic evolution of those he decides to work with. And yes, Trevor is that kind of guy who actually is in the position to decide.
Photography came rather late in the life of Jorge Rivas. His first objective – career wise – was to become a doctor, like many of his family members. He did in fact study medicine for 3 years in Durango, Mexico, until he dared to admit to himself, it really wasn't what he wanted to do with his life. And so Jorge decided to move to Monterrey City and started to study graphic design and Architecture. He was already 26 years old when he picked up a camera for the first time, but, and we have seen this on many occasion with those who discover the pleasure of photography, once he did pick up that camera, he wasn't able to put it down any longer. After having done the honourable thing, Jorge Rivas eventually found himself on his path of passion.
Jorge Rivas moved to the United States. He lived for a short time in new York City where he had the opportunity to assist one of the ground breaking photographers in the art of male erotic photography: Joe Oppedisano. Jorge moved to Texas where he further developed his own technics and style. It wasn't for long that he started make name for himself as fashion and fitness photographer as well as someone with a great eye for artistic photography. Not in the least thanks to a project he started some years ago and that he still holds dear to his heart and continues working on. His Mirror Project. Jorge started working on his Mirror Project about 5 years ago, and still ads to his slowly growing gallery of photos displaying sensual models interacting with mirrors in one way or the other. If nothing else, this particular project is a wonderful testimony to Jorge's work and progress as a photographer, something obviously respected and admired by Trevor Adams.
It is not the first time Trevor Adams and Jorge Rivas have worked together. Earlier, in 2013, the 2 collaborated in an under and swimwear shoot. And recently Trevor posed for Jorge as a most enriching addition to Jorge's Mirror Project. What once started as relatively simple, though beautiful settings, Jorge has slowly changed his style to more complicated compositions, not-seldom involving more than one mirror. He did it with Trevor and the result is - well – breath taking. Trevor Adams well developed body is already a lust for the eye if seen on standard photography, but with a clever and strategic placement of mirrors, Jorge Rivas now offers us an almost 3 dimensional view of Trevor. All of Trevor in one photo, or, seen differently, 3 Trevor's in one. Could we ask for anything more? –BM-
