Michael came into the world holding a camera in one hand and a cooking spatula in the other. Driven by a passion for capturing life on film and the desire for the best red velvet cake recipe, he continues to strive for a photographic utopia and the perfect dinner party.
For over 25 years, Michael has been capturing images and since childhood, he has always been fascinated with photography. Everything from candid family photos to classic Hollywood stars posing for legendary photographers has dazzled Michael's creative eye. The master of Hollywood glamour photography, George Hurrell was his earliest influence even before Michael realized photography would become his lifelong passion.
The dream of creating a coffee table book has been one of Michael's professional goals for many years. Now faced with the book's creation, he had to develop a fun and interesting theme from a personal interest. So it only seemed natural to photograph hot, naked guys eating desserts. Jose, Michael's sexy and clever partner then gave him the idea to add recipes to these photographs.
Creating this book has become a labor of love, not only photographing the images but also discovering countless, fantastic recipes and the delicious task of sampling them. Most of the desserts are Michael’s favorites, however there is one he decided to include that was a model's pick, it's flan. Michael intentionally selected guys that are as diverse as the desserts! The gorgeous models come from different backgrounds and nationalities. Some are tall, skinny, muscular, toned, hairless or quite hairy. Michael is hoping people will embrace the mouthwatering diversity and appreciate the delectable photos whether it’s a flavor they prefer or not.
