Sebastien Vachon - Hunk du Jour

Happy Birthday to model Sebastien Vachon, who celebrates today with these new photos from a recent shoot with photographer Rick Day!

A note from Sebastien:

I come from a very small town where very few gays were out of the closet. I took all the bad energy from bullying, high school people negativities, no-self confidence and all the rejections that came afterwards - as a motivation to outshine myself. This gave me order to just be in peace and happy about myself. Coming to New-York and shoot with the amazing Rick Day wasn't something I thought possible looking back 5 years ago.

Derek Alan Watson - Hunk du Jour

Here's a selection of photos courtesy of model Derek Allen Watson of some shoots he did with photographers Rick Day and Ryan Pfluger.

Derek says of the Rick Day shoot:

Rick is the best of the best. It's always nerve-wracking shooting with such a famous photographer and someone that I look up to. But when you are shooting with him, it's totally a chill environment. He just wants high sexual tension in the photos. He's great.

Derek adds:

I do think that my modeling work is becoming more personal to me. Only choosing shoots that I feel inspired to do or feel like I want people to see that side of me. If I'm depressed, you're gonna see those kind of dark images rather than bright and happy.

Derek loves keeping in touch via Twitter (@_derekallen). Join us on Twitter to keep tabs on him as well as me, your Lead Hunkologist: @HunkDuJour. See you online!

Jack Mackenroth - Hunk du Jour

I have an exclusive look at new photos from Jack Mackenroth, taken by the incomparable Rick Day! Says Rick, "It was a pleasure working with Jack. His beauty and professionalism made my job a hell of lot easier and quite enjoyable."

Jack was similarly impressed with Rick, saying "I love all of Rick's work, because he celebrates the male physique, without depending on tools like Photoshop, so the images always come out looking fresh and real, and the lighting is amazing."

Both men have been busy lately, with Rick Day recently releasing his book Pioneers and Jack just finishing co-producing a popular web series called The Queens of Drag: NYC on

Jared Prudoff photographed by Rick Day - Hunk du Jour

I'm a bit gaga for this model, Jared Prudoff... and today he posted some brand new photos from a new test shoot he did with New York photographer Rick Day last month. Jared is completely dreamy and completely unattainable (straight & engaged), but I don't let that get in the way of my affection for him and his work.

After you see the five extra photos (after the jump), check out more on Jared's Facebook Fan Page -- and while you're at it, become a fan of Hunk du Jour too!

Matt Schiermeier - Hunk du Jour

Rick Day (previously featured) has captured another masculine beauty in Matt Schiermeier. According to his website, the former Rufskin model is also trying to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and knowledge of safe sex practices in eastern Europe. With such a stunning (and risque) portfolio, I'm sure he doesn't have any trouble grabbing our attention.

Will Wikle - Hunk du Jour

Will Wikle may have started out on reality television on Big Brother, but he's up on the big screen now in Another Gay Sequel. This raunchy gay answer to teen sex comedies has headed off to the beach, and from the sound of it we aren't exactly talking about the next Frankie & Annette film.

Check out our exclusive interview with Will after the jump -- plus a link to a photo from this sultry photo shoot he did with photographer Rick Day that is even too hot for HDJ!

Ryan Holbert - Hunk du Jour

Ryan Holbert is a model and photographer, and of course we're jazzed whenever we see him in front of the camera. He shot this set with Rick Day in New York, and was nice enough to share them with us!

There's quite a difference between the man in this new set from the prior photos we featured -- and it's all for the better! We talked to Ryan over a year ago, check out his MySpace Monday post!
