    Difficult choice between 1) 3) and 6) but 1) won for me 🙂 Just can’t resist the jeans and white t-short combo!

  2. I think I’m still madly in love with photoset #1, dunno exactly why… Thank you so much for presenting all these yummies in one post! You’re giving me cravings… (and not for food) 😛

  3. So sorry, please don’t kill me or even worse…, banish me from the blog, but I just don’t like Alex modelling like this.
    No matter how manly a pose, it’s still a pose.
    In my humble opinion that’s not the most mascullin thing Alex has done over the years.
    Again so sorry FOYeur, youve put a lot of effort into this and I’m such an ingratefull brad 😦

    • Hi Miek,
      You don’t have to apologize to me. It is not me posing for the pictures. And and as always, everybody are welcome to voice there opinions.
      I myself can’t wait for Alex to do another photoshoot. For me it is part of him and he does it with style 😀
      Some of these I also do not like and I often do not like the pictures that are actually picked for the magazine. For instance I can not stand the pictures that were chosen for the cover pages of both the GQ magazines – they are just not Alex for me. 😀

    • You better run and hide!!!
      Well no, it is quite ok to have different opinions to our´s 🙂
      I am a big fan of Alex doing photoshoots. since he is clearly so natural in front of the camera and is not afraid to look s€xy, his pics look amazing. I think it is, as he says, he understands the business and plays his s€x-appeal because he knows his career benefits from it. I am so grateful for his ability to act so cool and casual for the camera. I only wish we could have more of these gems 🙂

      • He has a very natural camera charisma, nothing the matter with that 🙂
        I just think he’s sexy enough being himself.
        I love pictures taken on set (hard at work), or at Egan’s working out (little sweaty and enjoying himself) and most of the fan pics (you can almost feel the love he has for his fans)
        I usually also like photoshoots for a show, because those are being shot while in character.
        In the model- photoshoots I don’t know what to make of him. I don’t see his own character shining through and I don’t recognise any of the roles he’s playing.
        To me he’s almost generic in those shoots and I think we can all agree he’s SO MUCH MORE than generic!!

    • Oh wow, I thought I was the only one who wasn’t so much into the photoshoot pictures. There are some that I like but most feel too unnatural to me. I mostly like those that look as if this was a snapshot, without a carefully staged pose. Therefore, I like the set of #1 best.
      Also, some of his smiles look so forced (eg the last pic in 6).
      Having said this, I have great admiration for him (and everyone who takes part in such a shooting) being able to strike poses like this. I had some professional nude photos taken a couple of years ago (just for myself – and maybe my boyfriend 😉 – before my body started to … well, become less attractive… ;)) – it was REALLY hard work! I wouldn’t be keen on doing this (with or without clothes) on a more or less regular basis!

      I think that’s why I prefer photoshoots like the first one (Charlotte Moye), because it seems the most natural of the bunch, he’s not “posing” so much in the first one. I don’t like the slicked back style of GQ Au–too harsh.

  5. Uh uh, that’s a tough one. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7 are all amazing, can’t decide, depends, sometimes I like it sweet othertimes salty. 🙂
    So I voted for other, because Gary Friedmans shoot for the LA Times will always be one of my alltime favorites. Especially this -> http://i64.servimg.com/u/f64/14/74/84/35/53480210.jpg

  6. I chose the first one because out of all those photos those ones I keep going back to, reposting, printing etc, there’s just something so sexy about denim and him sprawling those long legs *sigh*

    Has tone Rodolofo as those are like e human Mick to ogle over again and agin….longer haired Alex just does it, dunno if it would if Mick was not still my fave character he ever played but those pics to me always seemed like Mick the human unleashed……perhaps undercover as a model to infiltrate a dodgy model drug thing ha ha well whatever, those shots have always done it for means the little snippet interviews rom that shoot, Lordy he is mighty sexy in that too!

        he is just hairy in SUCH a good way here lol! My typing ability just left me as I struggled to type out my first part lol! THAT is the effect an open shorted long haired Alex has lol! I REALLY wish in this next hiatus he grows his hair out and keeps it like that but alas, I think not…….it would be interesting to have a new Steve in the next season who is a bit outta control…longer hair…..one more shirt button left undone….mmmm yeah!

        • FarkSpark, I like the way you are thinking – it would be such a nice difference to see some longer hair on him again. I think he will look younger as well! But I am sure it will just stay a dream for us – it is Hawaii and maybe having his hair just a bit longer will annoy him to much in the summer weather they have there all the time!

    Each photo shoot shows a different aspect of Alex and really what’s not to love about this man! He’s sweet, he’s shy and he’s always sexy in all of them!! I adore the shot that leiCa included!

  11. There are pics I like in each and pics I don’t like in each. I think he is most like Alex in the men’s fitness, which is the one I voted for but I also like seeing him step outside his normal Alex self and be something different like the GQ Australia shoot. The man’s an actor , I like seeing him in different roles even on a magazine shoot.

    Like

    • Yes ESS, agree with you 100%.
      For me the shoots are like a script by the magazine (of what they need from it – each one of these of course had their own needs), the director (the photographer) shoots it and the actor rehearse in front of the camera the way he sees the “character”. Some pictures hit the spot of what is wanted or needed (like a take that gets used in final editing for the show). Some of the pictures on here was part of the rehearsal that did not make the cut.
      I would not always have chosen the ones used in the magazines – but then it was not my script

    OKay, so i DID vote but I should have put ‘other’ and then described it as ‘his next shoot’ because SERIOUSLY there is NOTHING since Nov 11/ That is criminal! I guess he would have done nothing early 2012 when he was sick, but still……….harumph! We NEED a new shoot and THAT is my favourite lol….the next future one lol!

  14. This was very difficult for me. It was like asking me what kind of chocolate dessert do I love best, and my answer being Alex…dripping with chocolate 😛 I am with ESS, I love (and dislike) many of the pictures in each of the sets individually, but if I have to choose *stomping like a stubborn child*, I choose #1. I love the denim and the sunglasses and him sitting in the diner booth all hot and sexy. He did look the most natural in them. However, the GQ spread with him all stretched out with underarmpOrn in the sunnies is breathtaking! Too bad I can’t photo shop myself in that pic. 😛

    Oi, this is toooo difficult! I love them all! It’s ALEX! What’s not to love about this man! If acting doesn’t work anymore, he can always become a model! I would love to see him being contracted by Hugo Boss or some other big brand and do adds for them. I think their bussiness would sky rocket!
    OK, if I have to choose, I’ll choose the Men’s Fitness shoot. Because there is more of Alex to admire! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I love the shoots. His tv roles limit him to that particular character each year he plays it. So the shoots give him a chance to don different personas for a camera. I think he kinda even enjoys em a bit; after all, he chose to be an actor and the shoots let him cheat on whoever his daytime role is at the time! 😉 And lord knows he oughta be pimping a clothing line cos the boy makes everything look good!

    There are a set of pics from some photog in LA…in one he’s walking his dogs (or somebody’s dogs) in the hills, in one he’s wearing boxing gloves, and this shot appeared in People mag’s sexy issue one year, another one of these he’s leaning against a fence, his jeans hanging on for dear life…oy!

    Anybody remember who that photog was? It was an awesome shoot too!

    • I love both those shoots as well. They are also by Rodolfo Martinez. One was used for the aricle in Jetstar and the other Madison (I think). And I think for TV Guide Fall issue as well (or something like that) 😕
      My problem with them on this post is that the only pictures available all have photographer watermarks on them – I really wish we could find unmarked photos of it 🙂

    • I had a quick look again – those shoots by RM were done in 2009 and were used in OK! Magazine and TV Guide Fall Magazine an the later in 2011 in the magazine that I mentioned earlier
