I had an AMAZING shoot with Von. This is a man with a mission!
"Weighing in at 600# at one point of my life I never realized how unhappy of a person I was… Even though I was always the life of the party. It wasn’t until the searching began that I realized I was not the person on the outside I am on the inside. So I worked hard to change that. And to this day I still am."
Von was at a point in his journey of self-acceptance that he wanted to do a photo-shoot. For someone who felt a lot shame about his physical body in the past, this was a big step forward. And he nailed it! He was very comfortable in front of the camera - even more so when we mixed in a couple snakes! Von loves animals, and his compassion and gentle nature shone through. Newer to the leather community, Von wanted specifically do work in some shots in his leather gear. It was a very creative and fun shoot!
