Look, I'm Naked!

Last week I had a story come out with Fantastics. The story was shot by the extremely talented McKenzie James and featured me butt ass naked. McKenzie and I shot the story with the help of James Nixon during my recent trip to Toronto. This was the first time I had ever been photographed nude (or at least with someone other than my girlfriend). I’ve received a lot of feedback from the photos, mostly positive, but some negative. So I wanted to say this, I think the human body is a beautiful thing. I work hard to look the way I do and there’s nothing quite as honest and raw as being completely stripped of everything. I was a little nervous going into the shoot, but McKenzie and James were absolute professionals. Once I got over that initial fear, it was a very liberating and freeing experience. And the result is some of the most beautiful pictures that I’ve ever taken. Just a reminder to step out of your comfort zone and to push yourself, you may be pleasantly surprised with the results. Attached are some of my favorite shots. You can view the full story here. http://fantasticsmag.com/stories/focus-mike-scocozza-mckenzie-james
