Jack Mackenroth and photographer Andrew Werner... a stylish symbiosis. The two know style, and teamed up to produce these photos for an exclusive Hunk du Jour sneak peek.
"Andrew is one of the nicest, easiest photographers to work with," says Mackenroth. "Since I just turned 41, honestly, I don't know how many more photo shoots I have left in me so it's always great to work with someone you know and get along with. He understands about the importance of lighting someone who isn't 21 anymore. It also helps that he has nice things to say about me, too."
Andrew added, "Everyone knows that Jack Mackenroth has great style. So naturally when I arrived at our shoot, I was eager to see what the stylist had selected for the shoot. After Jack tried on several outfits, he then, in perfectly witty 'Jack style' asked me, Clothes on or off? I instantly knew this would be a fun few hours." He added, "Jack's open, vibrant personality led him to comfortably run around half-naked; which gave me a great opportunity to share the different sides of one man with the rest of the world."
"My vision was to capture Jack's unique essence and energy through my lens; a man who has no only been HIV-positive for over 20 years, but a man who is a sex symbol, and more importantly a role model for the entire gay community."
