    Even though I find bullfighting to be inhumanely cruel to the bull, the grace and strength you've captured of the bullfighters in these photos is gorgeous. Is that a touch of Hermes at the waist?

    OK, the pants are a little tight in the second one. This is one hot stud muffin, I can't believe his looks. I like the chaps or whatever you call them that he is wearing in the first photo. Also, the light is incredible in this shot, rather warm and a little yellow. Makes me wish I was there, just for the sun. Is Spain this hot?

    the first photo is pure fashion.
    high waisted trousers.
    silk cummerbund/leather harness
    perfect white ruffled shirt with detailing that is not seen anymore.

    so many designers have 'borrowed' from this look.

    early 1990's references:
    gigli high waisted trousers.
    versace leather harness.
    touches of chanel in that ruffled shirt…and hermes in that silk cummerbund.

    didn't linda evangelista do an editorial spread once, dressed as a toreador/matador?

    Well, what can I say, the pics are beyond beautiful… to those who say this captures the essence of Spain.. I wouldn´t say that much, I´m from northern Spain and there isn´t a strong bullfighting tradition but it´s more of a celtic culture…I don´t like bullfightinng, I think it´s cruel, but what I always notice is that ther´s always a chance for Anglosaxons to show their so-called "superior morality", would they say so if it was part of their tradition?( and I say it again I hate bullfighting), I´m so fed up with stereotypes.. and no, Spain is cold in winter, actually it´s snowing today here in Madrid.
    But anyways good work Scott.

    It's already been said…but the word Matador doesn't exist in Spain, he is a Torero.

    uuggh people: bullfighting is not the 'soul' of Spain. It is a minimal part of it's history. and there are so many different types of 'corridas' – not all kill the bull or even torture it. educate yourselves, please!

    having said that the pictures of Sebastian are fantastic. the 'zahones' are beautifully tooled and worn; ruffled shirt with eyelet so Spanish. MEN in Spain are not afraid to look beautiful – it is the way we are brought up – from the children's being dressed as dolls to the 'traje de luces' the toreros wear. It is an attitude of pride and real manliness by birthright. Nobody can take that away from us.

    I love Spanish men. They are so sexy and beautiful in a way that American men just don't get. He's totally at ease in these photos and revealing. Wonderful work.

    I am from Spain, actually, I am from the south of Spain, land of flamenco and sadly bullfightin.

    I love your work and these pictures are beautiful as all the rest. However, what they represent make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.
    Just the word "matador" is embarrassing. This means "killer", and that's exactly what they do, slowly and cruely.

    As someone else said, please, do not see Spain as that. There's much more beauty in our country.

    Brilliant photography! Based on these photos, we at are going to start recommending that our male clients adopt the bullfighter look as part of their casual wardrobe, along with tennis and golf looks.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing
    the layout of your site? Its very well written;
    I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
