IF THERE IS ONE COUNTRY IN EUROPE THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE BETTER – READ FESTIVE – SIDES OF LIFE IT IS SPAIN. THE LARGE IBERIAN PENINSULA THAT IS SPAIN IS KNOWN FOR ITS FESTIVE CULTURE, HOT SUMMERS AND GOOD FOOD. AND AS IT IS USUALLY THE CASE IN A CULTURE WHERE SUN, BEACH AND OUTDOOR LIFE ARE A BIG PART OF THE DAILY ROUTINE, PHYSICAL BEAUTY IS ALSO NOT UNKNOWN IN SPAIN. ONE WHO IS VERY MUCH AWARE OF IT, IS GERT KIST.
There is a longstanding relation between the kingdoms of Spain and the Netherlands which has nothing to do with the fact that the royal families are partly related, but more with the unstoppable habit of the Dutch to spend their summer vacations on one of the sunny playa's at the Spanish coast. In fact, over the past decennia so many Dutch have made it a tradition to spend a couple of weeks – or months – by year in Spain, that there are whole villages that are almost entirely Dutch. It is not surprisingly so, as the Netherlands is a Nordic country with an average climate that is a lot colder than Spain, but, strangely enough, a population that craves for sun and high temperatures.
If there is one Dutch photographer who knows all about the Spanish temperature levels, and than we aren't exactly talking about sunny days, it is Gert Kist. Let's take a step back, shall we? A couple of years ago we introduced Gert to the bigger audience as a photographer of Dutch male beauty. Indeed, his celebrated Malemodel website once contained the crème de la crème of Dutch boys in all the rich varieties that the Low lands offers. Since then Gert has ventured to other countries as well. First those that are close neighbors, such as Belgium and the UK, but since some time he also started to roam the Spanish grounds for tasty men who are willing to show off their assets in front of his camera. And not without success.
Gert Kist worked with a handful of Spanish models that are slowly but surely starting to get national and international attention. His boys Dylan and Juan Carlos have been interviewed for the Spanish national TV which drew the publics attention to Gert Kist's Malemodel website. Especially the fact the Juan Carlos posed in a most sensual setting with Cristiano, another one of Gert's Spanish bombs, whilst both a straight men, got the attention in Spain. With the result that Gert himself also is becoming quiet the superstar in Spain. Which by itself results in new models lining up for the chance to be photographed by Gert. One of them being Juanjo.
Juanjo is only 21 years old and – according to Gert Kist – a really nice guy. He works as a hairdresser which is a great asset for modeling, but also has other qualities that have made him consider a future career in the adult video industry. I don't think we need to venture more on what those valuables are. Looking at the photos here should be enough to guess. Having someone in front of your camera who's ambition it is to do porn movies is of course the perfect opportunity to not only shoot stills but also video footage. Gert did it and this particular video will soon be available for members of his soon to be new website that will contain all behind the scenes videos he has done so far, and will do in the future. We for one can't wait to see that. –BM-
