May 16, 2012 This photoshoot has an interesting twist which is that the cover was originally meant for Cam Gigandet but unfortunately due to a last minute emergency he was unable to work with us. We had to confirm a new talent within 12 hours. We had flown into LA and were leaving the evening of the shoot.
Colton performed beautifully. He had a lot of previous modeling experience so this was a walk in the park for him. The only problem that arose from this switch is the clothing was meant for someone a couple sizes larger so alterations had to be made within photoshop. It is a wonderful story.
