Richard Gerst: Rodiney Santiago (A Portait)
If you watch Logo's "A-List" (the network's highest rated show to date), then you're sure to remember A-lister Rodiney Santiago's emotional break down after making a shocking discovery on [boyfriend] Reichen's phone this last season. It was during that unscripted moment that photographer Richard Gerst got hooked on this sexy Brazilian model. "it was the honesty that pulled me in," says Gerst.
Taken as he was, Gerst convinced Mr. Santiago to stop by for a quick dinner/meet-n-greet just last week and, as luck would have it, happened to have his camera at the ready (imagine that). What transpired was a spontaneous mini-shoot toward the end of the evening. This is my presentation of the pair's first meeting. [ The two have something special planned for later this year...something that combines the "Gerst" feeling with Rodiney's courage. Says Gerst, "...like a good Scout, it would be wise to "Be prepared." ] MORE PHOTOS next page.
