'I wanted to create a set that would mirror the "around the house" look of some of the images created during the Vintage Beefcake movement of the '50's era. For me the trick was to pay homage to those particular images but giving it my own modern spin. So instead of the literal black and white look I went the opposite direction and created a set in studio full of incredibly vibrant colors and some relatively timeless pieces in the background. If you look closely at some of those images you'll see a first edition of the very first issue of Bruce of LA's "The Male Physique". I've been collecting those issues for awhile now and it was a lot of fun to include one in a shoot that was paying homage to that same time frame.'Jay Rickard

'Seldom have a had the pleasure of working with a model with such raw athleticism, paired with complete defiance of gravity, and no fear of dirt or grime!'

|Craig by Chad Dutson|
'Chad Dustson is one of my personal favorite photographer. He is one of the first photographers I worked with when I was starting out modeling. Because of his patient and his creativity, he helped me get to where I am today.'
'I was in a hotel room in Portland Oregon getting ready to do a shoot with Humon Photography. At 1:00am in the morning I hear this cat crying and it just go's on and on.... I eventually called the manager and complained! I get a call back and he said no one there has a cat. At this point, it is like 2:30am. I finally go and start looking around the room putting my ears to the walls under the bed every where finally I found this black cat in my dresser drawer. Long story short I found the cat a good home!'

'I love ModelMayhem. It has help me out a lot. Yes you meet people different people. it goes with saying Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly...'
'I have always been an open minded free spirited person. I just did it. How I feel about shooting nude is that we're all human, so we all have a body. What's different besides our names? We may look different but it's still just a body.'
|Craig by Studio MG Photography|
'Studio MG is a great photographer we got along right away the second we met . I have learned working through him about body tone, and how to show it, and use it better it in a photos.'
'I get hit on by more older people, usually 50-60+ men and woman more than any age group.'
'I hope I don't have to fart.'
'My eyes get a lot attention and my upper body because of my strength, people are always shocked with how strong I am.'
'I always, always love art and photos, starting when I was a little boy. I feel at peace modeling. It make me happy that the photographer and I are taking something and making something beautiful out of it. That moment we capture to share as a story.'
|Craig by Pride Of Paradise|
'Pride of Paradise is another great photographer. He showed me to just be myself and not to be afraid of what others think.'
'I am trying to get kids and pretty much anyone that's out there going through tough times to not give up . If I can do this, if I can make a name for myself or get my face out there, then there is NO reason they can't. I been put down, abused, jumped. Was in special ed, had a teacher telling me I was not going to be anything when I grow up, homeless! SO if I can do it so can they. They don't need to do drugs or join a gang. If I can live my dream and be a successful male model, actor or work towards it, then they can too. No matter how many mistakes I make or how slow I progress, I am still way ahead of everyone who isn't trying.'
