As promised, I told you guys that I would share the rest of the images of my buddy Camell. once the slight amount of retouching was done. Although the session, photographed by Jimi Sweet was quick, it was quite fun.
I have remained in touch with Camell, and if I do say so, he is a pretty awesome guy. In the short time of us knowing one another, I have learned of some the trials he has faced since breaking into the business about a year ago. Some good, some bad, and some in my opinion, down right disgusting (and no, not on his part).

As most of you know by now, I have FINALLY relocated back to New York. It doesn't take a genius to know that there is a huge difference between the The Big Apple, and The Peach State (Georgia). So far the city has welcomed me back with open arms, but I must say, the fickle changes in weather as of lately has me sick as a dog. My intentions were to stay lied up in bed all day until I checked the messages on my phone. The first few were reminders that it was my move on Words With Friends, and others were invites to parties happening in other towns (oh how I love getting those). Just when I was about to drop my phone, I noticed a message from an unfamiliar name... Joseph Bleu. Curious, I decided to read message, and couldn't be more happy.
Joseph came across Fashion Forward Men and felt the need to tell me how much he enjoyed the site. This of course made me feel slightly better. After responding, I learned that Mr. Bleu is actually a photographer, based out of of NYC as well. Originally going to school in Paris for fashion Design, Joseph realized that photography was he true calling. Below is one of his recent works. Enjoy the editorial as well as video made for Collezioni Uomo (issue no. 80).

Leon Marks lends his photography talents to the unique, but very needed magazine CANDY. Created by Spanish born Luis Venegas, CANDY celebrates gender bending, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny. Whether you are going through particular changes in your life, or enjoy having fun with clothes, Candy Magazine appeals to those who appreciate aspects of life that don't necessarily fall in the boundaries of "normal."
Although published on a regular basis, Candy is very limited and exclusive. So exclusive, James Franco (above right) hadn't seen his own cover until Ellen Degeneres showed him.
In the editorial entitled Smells Like Teen Tranny Spirit. Leon teams up with stylist Way Perry, and uses models Oliver Greenall, John Perry, John Cherkas, Mickey Crawford, Gabe Mador and Morris Pendlebury.
