Nick Ayler’s photo by Photographer Richard Gerst for “Pin Up Boys” which graced the cover of GQ Magazine Italia, not only gave birth to a rising Model and DJ star, but a collaboration, a partnership, and also a friendship between Photographer Richard Gerst, Nick Ayler, and Blogger-Columnist for GQ Italia, Lepilloledistefano!
A way to start again, to go back at the beginning. The photos that Richard took of Nick Ayler for ‘Pin Up Boys’, and that got the cover of the magazine, were the first that the photographer gave me too publish in this blog as an exclusive for Italy, from that moment was born not only a collaboration, a partnership, but also a friendship. I admit that I find it very funny to talk with Richard, considering that due to the time zone when he is eating breakfast, I’m drinking coffee after lunch! But in recent months what has been truly rewarding was to see the professional growth that Richard has done, that has touched really exciting moments for me such as our project ’Casting Privati’. So we decided to go back there, but with a new spirit. That’s why ‘Private Casting: Genesis’ was born, a new shoot in which Nick Ayler and Richard Gerst have met again, with a photographic project which is different and more intimate. Nick also has changed, now he is on his way to becoming more than just a model, with many, many fans and so many works separate the current nick from the one he was then, so I decided to interview him, knowing well that we are chatting with a star on the rise. Many thanks to Richard and to Nick. Here are the beautiful photos and my chat with Nick!
