Emerson is a leather man, a drag queen, and so many other things. As we began our shoot last Sunday, he expressed that he wants to show the blurred line between masculine and feminine. He's a hot guy in a leather skirt, or jeans and candy red heels. He is not binary; he is Duality. [Link to photo]

Check out the photos and the great interview with Ren. Thank you to Ryan Brown for arranging the shoot, and to Derek Harley for being my light wrangler.

A Hot Weekend in Wisconsin! http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2014/9/a-hot-weekend-in-wisconsin I just came back from a hot and sexy weekend at the Mr. Wisconsin Leather 2015 contest. So many handsome men from Wisconsin and beyond. Many of the 2014 title holders from across the country were on hand to celebrate Mr. Wisconsin Leather 2014 - TC Hammond's step down, and to welcome the new title holder, Will Boyd-Bohaczek. Between the contest events, I also had the pleasure to photograph a couple of the Kink U demo events. Nothing like seeing hot men in singlets wrestling or being pups! See more photos here.

Pride 2014 Show Prep http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2014/6/pride-2014-show-prep I just finished matting and framing seven of the eight being that I'm showing at the Minnesota Leather Pride booth at Twin Cities Pride this weekend. The last print is an odd size and will require a little help from my friend Don tomorrow.

Warming up the camera http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2014/5/warming-up-the-camera

I took a couple months off from the camera to work on some web and design projects. Now all of a sudden I am back behind the camera (and sometimes in front as you can see above) for several upcoming projects which I'll be posting soon.

Mr. Twin Cities Leather 2014 http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2014/2/mr-twin-cities-leather-2014

I was invited to judge the Mr. Twin Cities Leather contest this weekend, which I of course said yes too! This didn't mean I was without my camera though, and I took a few hundred photos of the weekend that I'm happy to share here.

Hello Cowboy! http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2013/9/hello-cowboy Here's a little secret... I think cowboys are even sexier than leather men. In my mind that are so similar, this archetype of masculinity. I was very happy when Tommy suggested that he want to do a photos session with me wearing his cowboy gear. Tommy is a beautiful young man, and he was looking extra cowboy scruffy for our shoot.Just Passing Through

Marching in Leather http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2013/8/marching-in-leather It takes a special kind of person to wear leather and rubber on a 90 degree day at 11am while walking down Hennepin Avenue. Thankfully these are my leather brothers and sisters.

Consecrate http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2013/8/consecrate “Consecrate" features the beautiful lower half of the handsome Brian, invoking memories of blessing and beauty. I see something sacred and powerful in every person that I photograph, and I want to show the world what I see.

Last Light http://www.everettallenphotography.com/blog/2013/8/last-light
Allen is this wonderfully intense kind of person, but when he poses he’s able to achieve this amazing kind of sadness.
We were shooting in Rich’s studio, early evening around seven. We were just about to lose our natural lighting, so I asked Allen to sit right in the window frame to utilize as much of the remaining light as possible.
