Il meraviglioso Marco. Mi piacerebbe mostrarvi la version non tagliato…fidatevi….vale la pena… cioe’ di vedere tutto in totale…cioe’ tutto della foto….


Brett Mitchel. I have shot before with this exotic man. I was thrilled when we were able to shoot again. Smart, intelligent and a beautiful person with whom to work. He brings a serenity and a calm sensuality to the session. His naturalness is indicative of his personality. His body is eroticism in motion which I attempt to capture in these images. Nothing but praise for this model.


Jago Umberti

This sunny personality shines down on us from California. Third generation Ital-American, Jago Umberti is a third year med student and still has time to hit the gym and get in a little surfing. Beautiful personality and a body that says it all.

I found him sunning himself on Will Rogers Beach in Santa Monica. We struck up a conversation and I asked if he would be interested in being photographed. He said he has never done anything similar but was curious to try. The session was wonderful. Here is a taste of some of the results. More to come later.

Admirers of my Images and Models…I am Back…!!

I am sorry that I have been absent and not been able to update my blog due to my work:The one that pays the bills. Some of you were concerned and I thank you for caring. All is Well! In the coming days, I will be offering you some new images to review. In the meantime, enjoy another great image of a wonderful model that I love shooting, Esteban Rodrique

Edoardo Colosimo

Edoardo 13

I have had so many request and questions about this Edoardo that I just had to bring back this gorgeous Italian hunk!  This is a MAN in all senses of the word. Nothing twink about him. He has a smoldering inviting sensuality that makes you just want to beg to see more. So here is more of the amazingly gifted Edoardo. Oh by the way, there is also a video clip(!!!). You think the photos are hot>…!


Ike Love

I have shot with Ike Love at least three times now and each time was a pleasure.  One of the few models that has earned the distinction of being one who I would shoot again and again. I LOVE me some IKE!! and hopefully you will too! This ethnically ambiguous model is a Brooklyn NY native and is known for his  killer physique, great personality and extreme professionalism.  Primarily an underwear model, he has posed for numerous photographers and graced many runways. If you want to see more and know more about this model, he is currently working on a showcase called THE IKE SHOW 2014 VIDEO LAUNCH – “Get out of Your Own Way”,  An inspirational underwear commercial where you get to see more of his great physique.  With the video launch “I want to transports you to a world that shows what possibilities  exist when you let your dreams take over your heart and not  fear and  doubt. Be sure to follow him on twitter: @ikelovenyc  Hey Ike! Can’t wait for our next shoot…

Now Offering: Hot Backstage Session Videos

I am here enjoying Montreal. There are so many hot gorgeous guys running around that I don’t know where to look. I would love to photograph them all for you guys and girls! When I get a chance, I will try to post images of  Men of Montreal.

Until then, I leave you with something else. I have been trying my hand at doing videos of some of my models during the sessions. I know it is amateur, for now, but at least you get a bit more of the models.


The first will be Ukrainian Model Artur Dainese. If you are following me, you have seen him before here. Boy is he HOT! Take a more intimate peek by following the link.


Artur Dainese



Here is Italian Model Edoardo Colosimo. You have seen him before if you follow my site. He is definitely one of one of my favorite models! He is such a sweet guy but do not let that fool you… as you will see in the video. Definitely some one who will capture your attention! Enjoy!

MY MEANDERING II – Who is Kevin Moore of Arteo Photo?

I decided to share a bit of an interview. It will help get a better prespective on what I do and why? It is not enough just to see a photograph but also know about the photographer behind it.

What got you into Photography?

Tourism. Traveling around the world and wanting to record what was around me. I had a Pentax k1000. That lead to more serious shooting of OBJECTS. Which lead to learning to also develop film and make my own prints. I started shooting male subjects by chance. A neighbor asked me to take some shots of him. At one point, I asked him to unbutton his shirt. I went to reload the film. I turned around and he was standing there BUTT NAKED. I pretended that is was all natural and just keep shooting. The following week, the village exhibitionist asked me to shoot him. I look at those images today and just cringed….LOL

Castel San Angelo - Vatican City

Why did you choose to focus on the male Body?

Being a professional dancer, I appreciate very much the line, shapes, design and aesthetics of a finely toned body, be it male or female. In all truthfulness I focus on the male form because it is much easier and cheaper than shooting female subjects. LOL


What is your favorite thing about what you do?

My favorite thing about what I do is to be able to extend my creative energies into producing something of relative beauty. Though I do no put my more artistic work on the internet (concepts based on baroque and renaissance art with a dash of graeco-roman sculpture), I still think I produce images that are aesthetically pleasing to see and which shows the model in the best light possible.

What do you hope people get out of looking at your photographs?

I hope people are seduced by my images. I want people to see them and want to be in them. I want the image to be strong so that people see the whole image and not only the goodie bits. I want the viewer to see harmony, line, sensuality and images that communicate a thought, an expression, a pleasure. I want them to look and want more and more.


Who are some of your influences/favorite photographers from the pas? And who are some of your favorite photographers nowadays?

I have a Large collection of original Prints, entire out of print magazine collections and books, and many photobooks of my contemporaries. To really appreciate an image you must buy it or a well printed book of the image; downloading pictures from the internet does not do justice to the quality photographer’s work.

At certain periods of my development each of these artist has had a profound impact on my particular style and way of seeing imagery. I am not going to list them all…and not to forget the great renaissance and baroque period artists who taught me how to use light to create art and atmosphere.

Bob Mizer (and all the others pioneers of early male erotic photography in the 50-70’s), Wilhelm von Gloeden and Wilhelm von Plüschow, Duane Michaels, Jan Saudek, Steven Arnold, Pierre et Giles, Isabel Munoz, Diane Arbus, Georges Platt Lynes, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, the incredible Dave la Chapelle, Howard Hoffman, the great John Healy, Andres Serrano, Ruvern Afanador, Duane Michaels, Tomas Benna (Cuban series), Mark Henderson, Rick Day, Greg Gorman, Mikel Marton….gosh the list goes on.


Matthieu RiffiI wanted to bring Esteban back. I just saw him again in Paris. He is even better than before. Still the winning personality, fantastic physique and the love of being in front of of the camera.
