Always Loyal: The best photo shoot!!

On this photography day, I would like to dedicate this article to Michael Stokes for his brilliant and awesome idea…

Wow man!! He rocked…

So the project is to shoot models for calendar.. Obviously we know, for calendars  models will be sexy.. And here they are, not just sexy.. but powerful, proud, brave, beautiful and with such a charm..

Why can’t amputee be shot with glamour? was his question before starting this project… And Stokes’ idea to photograph wounded veterans in the style of fitness models lends his portraits a strong sense of empowerment. When I was going through those pictures, believe me, I couldn’t find any difference between these veterans and trained models..

I know some of you will not approve many of the images.. But who cares?? For my eyes, these images were awesome rocking… Those models were way too brilliant.. Unable to believe they were amputee with that look in their eyes…

His book Always Loyal showcases 14 veterans of the Gulf War, Iraq War, and the War in Afghanistan.

Happy Photography day Michael Stokes!!!
