I have been a fan of model Benjamin Godfre for several years. I like his style, his look and his attitude. If you peruse his website, www.benjamingodfre.com, you’ll see that he’s also uplifting and playful, which makes any shoot fun, and that he’s gotten more comfortable showing the whole of his body as he’s aged. (Who am I kidding, he’s only 24, I think!) I think a photo shoot with Benjamin Godfre would signify my arrival at a level of male physique photography of which I aspire. And I think, based on his photos, that we’d work well together. Oh, and another selling point: He seems to be a good person. He sells merchandise on his website to generate funds for underprivileged children, and in a couple of his videos it sounds like if you contact him, there’s a fair chance that he’ll reply. And yes, it kind of goes without saying that he’s easy on the eyes. Really, why wouldn’t I want to photograph this guy?
I have to admit that I haven’t seen a lot of Alfre Woodard’s movies (“The Forgotten,” “Extremities,” “Grand Canyon”) but I love her, all the same. She’s classy and she’s beautiful. She has a face that I would think any photographer would want to shoot. I was thrilled to see her take a small role in “True Blood” — one of about three television shows that I actually like — as Lafayette’s mother, who might be crazy or she might be intuitive. (No spoilers! Jay and I are a season behind.) Seeing Alfre in any production just makes me happy. I’d love to work with her.
I’m going to confess that the only reason Scott Caan is on this list is because I think he’s cute. When I am in the mood to watch TV and there’s nothing else on, I’ll go to the On-Demand screen and start an episode of Hawaii Five-o, just to watch Scott. Besides being cute, well, he’s short (5’5″ according to Google); I have a thing for short guys. And he’s not afraid of roles that require nudity. The only two reasons to watch “Varsity Blues” are Scott Caan, who has several butt shots, and Paul Walker; and in a movie called “Speed of Life,” Scott has a full frontal scene. I just think a shoot with Scott Caan would be fun.
