Renato Ferreira, Major Model Management. Shot by Richard Gerst for BelloMag - Hunk du Jour

Check out these photos of Renato Ferreira, who is prominently featured in the latest issue of Bello Mag. Renato appears in Boys in the Hood, a fashion editorial from Richard Gerst.

Says Gerst of the shoot:

Renato is truly polite - clear, calm, direct- and "strong" in all aspects of his personality.

When I put him in front of the lens he became this concentration of energy, barely containable by that rippling physique of his -- which he obviously has worked very, very hard perfecting!

"Boys in the Hood" was conceived as a fall fashion shoot and shot with Cameron K. Carpenter styling, someone I have worked with before. He is always great fun to work with.

The strobed throw back shots obtained outside during the day came from the concept of street-wise toughness and action. I wanted something beautiful and atypical.

The editors at BelloMag agreed - and loved the look.

Check out three more outtakes from the shoot after the jump -- a big thank-you to Richard for sending them over!
