Rodiney Santiago’s sexy ATL calendar adventure

Add this share

Sexy Brazilian Rodiney Santiago, busy with his shirtless romp across gay Atlanta, is taking on a new challenge: Pairing up with talented gay Atlanta photographer Richie Arpino to shoot his 2014 calendar.

When it comes to sizzling hot man candy calendars, we know what Arpino (photo left) can produce. And we certainly know what gay reality star and fantasy man Santiago (photo right) can do. In fact, the two got a taste of one another for Arpino's 2012 calendar.

Now they are traipsing through lake settings in South Carolina and goat farms and horse stables in Alabama and Georgia to produce this latest collaboration. Shooting started this week.

“I can tell you we are definitely bringing a little country to our hottie Brazilian,” Arpino says. “He is so nice to work with and is extremely good at marketing his amazingly beautiful image.”

Arpino says improving on Santiago's previous sold-out calendars will be tough.

“I am proud to follow in some great footsteps of very notable photographers who have shot Rodiney's very successful calendars in the past,” Arpino says.

Look for the calendar to debut in September with launch parties in Atlanta, Miami and New York.
