WHEN OUR LONG TIME FRIEND AND PARTNER LAMONT PINCKNEY SENDS US A SUBMISSION OF ONE OF HIS NEWLY DISCOVERED TALENTS, WHETHER IT IS A PHOTOGRAPHER OR A MODEL, WE RARELY SAY NO. AS A MATTER OF FACT, NO I COME TO THINK OF IT, I DO BELIEVE WE NEVER SAY NO. FOR SURE, LAMONT AND HIS CREW MODELS INTERNATIONAL NEVER DISAPPOINT AND HIS MEN ARE ALWAYS FRESH AND TALENTED AND NEVER SEE ON BEAUTIFULMAG BEFORE. EXCEPT FOR THIS TIME.
OK I probably do need to elucidate a bit more on that. Chris Connor is nothing but talented and fresh, so if we say that today's feature proposed by CMI's Lamont Pinckney is different from normal, we are not talking about that. We merely refer to the fact Chris has been featured on BM before, and not even that long ago. But when Lamont told us he believed that Chris has made a significant transformation since last time he was presented on our page, we were curious to see what he was talking about. As said before, Lamont never disappoints, and neither do his talented models. See for yourself what he meant.
A little reminder regarding Chris. Standing 5' 10" / 178 cm tall, 23 years old Chris Conner isn't exactly blessed with the perfect height to make it as a fashion model. But he makes more than up for that in other areas to guarantee him a bright future as fitness and male art model. His ripped physique is mouth-watering and – there is no escaping – also in the area of sex, Chris is definitely a man to envy. When we are talking about the transformation of Chris, it obviously has nothing to do with whom he is. Chris is still the down to earth kind of guy we presented back in November who prefers to take life as it comes, dealing with things realistically. Also his physical shape didn't change that much. No the transformation can be found in his attitude towards the camera.
Already showing great potential in his earlier work, today we can clearly see how Chris Connor is progressing in modeling. Of course he cannot take full credit for that all by himself. The photographers that work with him are definitely partly responsible of Chis' progressing skills. Today's work is by the hand – and eye – of Hayden Su. Hayden Su is an Indiana-based photographer, specializing in portrait, fashion, fitness, hair & make-up, modeling, and performance art photos. What he enjoys the most about photography is its ability to capture the fragments of memories and emotions that quickly get blurry over time and freeze them in the form of a photo. Or, as he says himself on his website "capturing these fragments and piecing them together reveal the trails that we have walked in life, depicting who we really are and how we have become ourselves."
In Chris Connor's case, his collaboration with Hayden Su successfully showcases the versatility of his expressions, moods and poses. This combination of B&W and color images beautifully details and highlights the many facets and nuances of Chris' overall appeal, look and features. A transformation indeed. Now for those who recall Chris' earlier feature, a series shot by the equally talented photographer William Cristos, might also remember that Chris is not only blessed with the talent to model, but also with other exceptional assets. And than we are not talking about his beautiful smile. Hayden Su's set included a wonderful example of that as well, which we, after some internal debate, decided to place here as well. Just in case that smile that truly is beautiful was not enough for you. –BM-
