We are crowning pit crew member Shawn Morels as this years real winner of Ru Paul’s Drag Race. The season is not quite finished yet but the non- drag queen winner is blue skies clear. Gabriel Gastelum Photography has just published a photo spread of Shawn in the comforts of what possibly looks like his own home casually chilling out in next to nothing.
Photographer Gabriel Gastelum had this to say:
Lifestyle sessions are my absolute favorite. It’s more than grabbing a simple portrait, it’s about trying to capture the style and personality of a person. A picture of someone actually laughing and having fun is way more powerful than a posed laugh.
Shawn here made the session so so easy. Not only is he incredibly nice and smart, during the session we both talked about our similar interests. We are both anime geeks and enjoy a good videogame here and there. Seriously, you should have seen our faces light up when we saw the trailer to the new Naruto fighting game.
We walked around the Silverlake area with his dog, Ninja, and enjoyed the sunny Los Angeles weather. Shawn is a big time club promoter in Los Angeles and some people may recognize him from [television]. Rad Guy.
