Autumn Crisp: 1960's Kim Reed

Mr. Reed posed for Don Whitman's Western Photography Guild during the 1960's. A former U.S. Navy lieutenant, Don began his business in Denver, Colorado in 1947. Don founded the Mr. Colorado bodybuilding competition which was a great way to meet potential models. While the outdoor Rocky Mountains served as a stage set for the majority of his photographs, he also captured the masculinity of men in traditional studio settings, such as these with Kim Reed. Kim had the clean cut 'next door' young man look that made him a favorite for many.
