A day with Shane & Kacey

Greetings!  I recently got to spend the morning with model Shane Eyeball Williams and author Kacey Shea.

kacey and shane

We walked around downtown Chandler, my hometown, chatting and taking pictures for Shane’s portfolio and Kacey’s book teasers.  Some of you may know that Shane is an model from Australia who does work for ads and book covers around the world, and has also done some television/movie work.

(Please be patient if the pictures load slowly – they’re worth the wait.)

shane by wall final bw wm Kacey is a hot new indie author with three sizzling books and more on the way.  Shane and Kacey are both fun, kind and good-hearted people who love to laugh and joke around.  Shane is rightfully proud of his hard-earned physique, but he’s no diva —  he’s a down-to-Earth nice guy with a great smile and a kind word for every fan.  Kacey can organize the best book-signings ever, and is one of the most creative and driven authors I’ve met, but she’s humble and sweet when she talks about her success as an author and her plans for future books and sexy covers.


Do you recognize that sexy guy on Uncovering Love? It’s Shane!

While we were taking pictures against a particularly scenic crumbled wall, a guy approached Shane with a business card, asking if he was a model, and told him about a new TV show. He said Shane would be perfect for it and should give him a call.  Shane later explained that this happens a lot when you’re a model, and not all of the offers are legit, but I was blown away. Can you imagine the coolness?  People just walking up to you with a business card?  Pretty impressive, right? (The man didn’t offer ME a card.)

While Shane was in the US for this visit, he took pictures with several top photographers, including Eric Battershell and Golden Czermak. I felt honored to take pictures of Shane, too — and thoroughly enjoyed it, because Shane is such fun to hang out with.

Shane was fun and professional, and game for taking pictures in front of every cool wall around, as well as my favorite coffee shop and the bridal boutique next door. Look closely, because in one of the shots you can see his name (“Eyeball”) tattoo.

And be sure to visit Kacey’s Amazon page so you can see (and purchase) her excellent books, which — by the way — have excellent covers. One of them features Shane.  The others are beautiful, too, even though they have not been Shane-ified.

Please stop by and friend by Shane and Kacey on Facebook, and follow their progress on Instagram & Twitter. They have fun, sexy and interesting posts to share — and they’re both super cool, nice people.
