Reality TV star, HIV/AIDS awareness advocate, fashion designer and Olympic swimmer Jack Mackenroth has recently finished a photo-shoot with photographer Rick Day. Self-taught photographer Rick Day moved to New York City in 1994 and has become a noted name in fashion photography. His work has been published in numerous publications such as Elle, Details, Teen Vogue and GQ and he has shot advertising campaigns for Gap, Ritani and Rufskin. With his new book, PIONEERS, Day now delivers a worthy follow up to his stunning book, PLAYERS. This time his way doesn’t only lead him in to the photo studio but also outdoors, to the sea, into the mountains and on the meadow. Surprising, sexy and strong—PIONEERS gives us excellent photo art and breathtaking men on 128 pages. Pick up a copy of "Pioneers" click Here. Says Day, "It was a pleasure working with Jack. His beauty and professionalism made my job a hell of lot easier and quite enjoyable. I wish him all the best in all his future ventures and I will be looking forward to our paths crossing again in the future." Jack Mackenroth has been a fashion and fitness model for over 15 years and mainly does photo shoots now just for fun. He enjoys being part of anything artistically expressive. "I love all of Rick's work, because he celebrates the male physique, without depending on tools like Photoshop, so the images always come out looking fresh and real, and the lighting is amazing." Known best for appearing as a designer on Season 4 of Project Runway, Jack just finished co-producing a popular web series called The Queens of Drag: NYC (http://www.gay.com/queensofdragnyc/) which is out now on Gay.com. In addition, a commercial he shot earlier this year for "Healthy with HIV" was just nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.
