For many, the news here is the release of the digital version of Bond: Private Portfolio 2. This is a sequel to Bond's first portfolio and the two books span 24 months in the life of one of the studio's most popular models. Both the print and digital versions are now on sale here. You can read more about the book in last month's blog entry, when the hardcover edition was released.
Books labeled Private Portfolio have quietly resided on a back shelf of our website since 2014. With the release of Bond: Private Portfolio 2, the fourth book, it's time to promote a trio of books into a series. (And a fifth is on its way!)
The Private Portfolio Series is a collection of single-model portfolios featuring models with whom the studio has had multiple sessions. This is the uncensored work from their sessions, including many explicit photographs and art nude studies.
We place no restrictions on the type of work included in the series and each book is as unique as the model with whom we were collaborating. Photography in the series ranges from fashion and fitness work of a commercial nature to physique and art nude studies. Occasionally models have done softly erotic work and almost always you will find casual behind-the-scenes shots along with formal physique poses.
The series showcases the best of our work with the featured models. As such, some images may be in public circulation, others may have been published in Captured Shadows or other studio publications, but most of the photography in each book is previously-unpublished art, available from us only in this series.
Perhaps the most compelling part of these collections is the addition of the temporal dimension: the study of a single subject over a period of time. In the case of these young men, you are witness to their maturing physiques, nothing less than the principal focus of our work. You are watching the body changing over time. These books capture the models' changing looks over 18 to 30 months during their early
The Private Portfolio Series is published as ebooks and as deluxe, hard-bound editions printed on premium paper. A Deluxe Collector's Edition is available for most books; printed on our highest quality ProLine Pearl Photo Paper, each copy is signed and personalized by the model. Costs for print editions vary depending on length.
