Everyone loves photos of adorable pit bull pups. So what happens when you pair the cutest pooches on earth — who just happen to be in need of homes — with beautiful, hunky men? You get photographer Mike Ruiz’s calendar, “Bullies and Biceps,” that will put a smile on your face every day of the year.
Mike Ruiz is a pit bull rescuer and the calendar is in memory of Oliver, his own beloved canine. The men featured in “Bullies and Biceps” are some of the biggest male fitness models working today, including Bryan Richards, Michael Dean, Nick Tope, and cover model Casey Christopher. They are all also passionate about animal rescue.
I admire men who have sculpted their bodies into works of art. It takes incredible skill and knowledge to form human tissue to near perfection. Photographing their work is quite gratifying to me. — Mike Ruiz
