THE HUMAN BODY IS AN ART FORM THAT DESERVES EXPLORATION AND EXPRESSION. BLENDING SENSUALITY AND ATHLETICISM TOGETHER TO SHOW A MODEL’S PERSONALITY AND AURA IS MY GOAL. – PRAIRIE VISIONS PHOTOGRAPHY –
The Prairie Visions photographer was given a Kodak 110 camera as a youth in Nebraska and would accompany his parents on short landscape photo excursions. He bought his first 35 mm camera as a teenager and enjoyed landscape photography around Lake McConaughy and the surrounding Sandhills of Western Nebraska. He moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, for college in 1988, and his film camera remained boxed up for many years after the move. In 2003 he made the switch to digital photography and has since focused mainly on the human form.
Mathew Vigar is only 18 years old but already knows how to show his best assets on camera. Born and raised in Ontario, Canada, with an Irish and English background, he recently graduated a fire fighter from Lambton College in Sarnia Ontario. Which probably explains that portrait where he is dressed as – indeed – a fire fighter. He grew up training in boxing and kickboxing for most of my life. Later on he switched to weight training in addition to playing school rugby. Mathew is open to artistic, fitness, fashion, sports and physique modelling and has been fortunate to have worked with some amazing photographers so far.
Despite his dream of being a fire fighter Mathew Vigar also always wanted to get into acting. A few years ago he was in a local theatre comedy play called "Who's Underwear?". He played the role of "Sebastian", an underwear model who didn't know what he was getting into when he got the gig. I loved the experience and would like to excel in both acting and modeling as my career develops. A role as fire fighter seems to be perfect for him as well. He wishes to go as far as possible and to reach his goals he signed up with Crew Models International, the successful agency from Lamont Pinckney which has helped many young models to land promising careers already.
Prairie Visions Photography has had work published in Plains Song Review, a publication of the Center for Great Plains Studies, and has books of work now on Amazon and B&N. In 2009 he received his MBA degree from the University of Nebraska and has a new focus to develop his photography business. You also might remember an earlier feature we did with the talented photographer, back in 2012 featuring the sexy Chris Rockway in some very revealing Christmas settings. Prairie Visions has a knack of creating special atmospheres, as he proofs again with Mathew Vigarl, giving his portraits a certain vintage flair which we personally love, and making them look like old Mid West portraits. In other words, prairie visions. –BM-
