The Hookies are an annual award ceremony to recognize the supposed best men who work in the escort industry. But it's also a chance to see a wide variety of part-time male models, male fitness experts, gym rats and their admirers. While covering this event for Xtra, a publication and Website based in Canada, I snapped a number of photos of some of the nominees and winners on the red carpet, as well as shots of the singer/rapper Cazwell, giving me the finger and later performing his latest single, "No Selfie Control," accompanied by several male dancers doubling as underwear models. Here are some of the most interesting shots.
And don't forget, you can see samples from Mark Edward Studio's newest photo book and eBook (which even has two uncensored, behind-the-scenes videos): Intimate Male Portraits 1: Young Man & Nature. The eBook with video is just $9.99!
