Exclusive: Summer Solstice — A DNA Preview


Fresh from the recent publication of his limited edition set of prints, 10, Lewis Payton presents a new shoot in the issue of DNA which just hit newsstands. I've got a stunning exclusive preview of the issue for you today.

This time, Lewis features Craig, a newcomer to modeling, though he already comes off as a seasoned pro. Enjoy the shots (click for larger versions) and be sure to follow the jump for a special bonus (NSFW) image...

Lewis writes:

"This was Craig's first major modeling shoot and he was so excited to do it. Unfortunately for him, the shoot was in the middle of winter and I don't think he was prepared for how cold he got! But the end result is beautiful and something a little different than I've shot before for DNA. Craig's a champion gymnast whose career was unfortunately cut short by a major knee injury. Last week, Craig signed up to the US Marines and he leaves for basic training in a couple of weeks. We were all a little dismayed to hear the news, as it's not exactly the best time to be a Marine. I hope he stays safe and keeps well out of harm's way."

Thanks to Lewis and DNA (one of Towleroad’s sponsors) for the shots.
