You're welcome. I know guys will of course do the obvious thing and think/say "hot, sexy etc" even myself; at first glance. But there's more to it then that, and it deserves more respect.
The lighting, and the skill to capture yourself in such excellent form can be VERY difficult. And I understand what ya mean. I prefer to do things more myself as well. Because only you know exactly what you want to convey with your own art.
