The media has gone mental on this one. I fully expect this guy to have a TV movie, modeling and record contract by the end of next week.

You forgot to include a reality TV show.

I think the phenomenon of hot guys in mugshots attests to the grotesque incompetence of professional photographers. Any random shot by an amateur is apparently better than the hideous fright masks the "professionals" are producing.

Let's face it: most photographers are sleazy little idiots who were too dumb to do anything else. And like the life-ruining little punt in 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' (you know, all the young Doc she destroys wanted was a bit of action, and then suddenly he's stuck with this unemployable little sad sack female, who ends up getting him stuck behind the Iron Curtain, with his Doctor's certification revoked, and finally he's killed), someone gets them a camera, and suddenly what they're doing is "art" and "profound".

My Gay friends show me the files they've assembled of erotic male photography (whiles away the time, when I'm at the Colorist's all afternoon, gittin' my roots did...). Before the photos can be "used", they have to be purged of all the stupidity wrought by the idiot photographers.

Gay men, at least the ones I know, HATE what the "pro" photographers do to the guys. Frequently, my buds will have a section of photos of a guy - say, a Mixed Martial Arts champ who does Gayporn on the side (apparently, there are several of those), or a college wrestler who fell into a photographer's clutches (this seems to have been happening since the 1920s), or a British rugby star who's venting his exhibitionistic streak. The section will start with random shots of these dudes out in the real world. But then, when we get to the nude shots by the "pros", the faces will have been cropped by my pals, from the lips on up. If I 'escape' 'full screen', I'll see notes made upon downloading, like "crop queenybrows", "crop puffylips", "crop mascara", "erase porno nipples", "crop all the stupid", "de-color to eliminate ruby lips", "crop that queeny face", "crop the makeup", "crop the queeny hairdo", "crop those stupid boots", "crop the spiky hair", "crop the greasemop"....

The photographers are taking gorgeous, hypermasculine guys, and making them look like they just got off the stage at a drag show and haven't taken off their makeup yet.

My Sometimes-Personal-Trainer, when I'm in a certain Southern city, started out as six feet of blond perfection. When I first noticed him (about the time local TV film crews discovered him), my then-Trainer called him a "young Schwarzenegger". But he had a better face. Huge muscles, beautiful blond bamabangs, and a perfect face: the guy was beyond perfect.

But then, he went to New York and LA for (non-nude, mostly underwear) modeling assignments, and the photographers started "polishing" him. And some local idiot - probably the girl who had his baby - started "beautifying" him. You see his photos all over the Internet, reblogged by people all over the world, showing him with plucked eyebrows, collagened lips, makeup, silly little New York Metrosexual haircuts as bad as the ones 'Mark' had on Ugly Betty... He looks so femmy, now.

In reality, this is a former building contractor who has a jacked-up truck with the giant tires, for when he goes 'mudding'. His voice is so deep it will make your toes curl. He's six-feet-plus of authentic he-man: but those damn photographers make him look like a hairdresser awkwardly and unsuccessfully pretending to be butch. Or, as my Colorist (who's at the other corner of the continent, and so has never met him ) says, "I'll take your word for it, Gloria. But in those photos, he looks like a bigger queen than I am."

And have you seen what the little idiots do to the gorgeous European athletes in those "Les Dieux du Stade" productions? They RUIN them.

So, YES! These mugshots do, normally look hotter than the guys in the fashion magazines and the movie magazines. And because our new 'Normal' is what we see in media, a hot guy photographed by any random amateur is apt to be more attractive than our 'normal' - that is, hotter than he would be, if photographed by a "pro".

Criminals tend to suffer from a combination of overabundant testosterone and undersized brains. High school athletics tends to build hot bodies and criminal minds. Football tends to foster both violent behavior and a sense of entitlement. Add a few years' weightlifting in prison, to the overabundant testosterone, and you've got a real stud. Strip all the fat from his skin, in the early stages of meth addiction, and his neck will look really thick - and he will have that "model" look.

Personally, I'm not impressed by the particular dude in the Original Post. His lips are a tad too 'romantic' for me. But yes: I've noticed that there are a lot of hot criminals out there, these days. Anyway, it's time now for some theme music from my bud in Brazil. Sing it Britney! Criminal Britney Spears (Augusto Mariante) - YouTube

women who see such men for husbands must have other sources of income.

There has never been nor will be a shortage of desperate women or gay men willing to let their lusts could sane judgment.

Plenty of females and gay men will lay with, aid and abet, support and otherwise welcome entirely unsuitable men into their lives/homes for the sake of attention and or affection. Considering many men emerge from incarceration bulked up, ripped, and otherwise with "hot" bodies that is enough for some. Not only will these men be taken in their "women" or "men" will defend them with their dying breath.

Of course, there will always be those who have poor judgment and just follow the flesh.
Such men are often well practiced in the art of not looking at the mantelpiece when they are poking the fire. In short a few moments loving no matter how ambivalent such men are towards the recipient can and often does provide great benefits.

And like that homeless guy with the "golden voice" from a year or so ago, his fifteen minutes of fame will be over real quicklike.

My friends and I were commenting that the lighting in that mugshot was perfect. How do they do that?

ROFL... I saved my old ID photo from past employer because the photo was so good!

Now, if only the Bureau of Motor Vehicles would learn these photo techniques! People would gain much better self image!
