Vampire Diaries star Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood) is getting racy in a new photo that appears in Tyler Shield’s recently-released book of photography, The Dirty Side of Glamour. What are Michael and co-model Dave Franco doing in the snapshot? You’re going to have to see it to believe it!

“Old school photo by Tyler Shields with Dave Franco. Go get that #thedirtysideofglamour book if you haven't already!” Michael Instagrammed yesterday, along with a preview of the picture. In the photo, Michael and Dave are staring, unimpressed, at the camera while two women grab their crotches. We’re not sure what photographer Tyler Shields is going for here, but we’re going to assume it’s a comment on vampire, werewolf, or hybrid culture.

Tyler Shields has actually photographed many a TVD star. He’s taking a few shots of Nina Dobrev (Elena), and — in 2009 — he nabbed this one of Nina, Candice Accola (Caroline), Sara Canning (Jenna), and Kayla Ewell (Vicki) looking young and beautiful together on a highway overpass.

As for his book, The Dirty Side of Glamour, its celebrity subjects include American Horror Story: Coven’s Emma Roberts, Glee’s Dianna Agron and Heather Morris, Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto, The Hunger GamesJosh Hutcherson, Revenge’s Emily Van Camp and Joshua Bowman, and Castle’s Stana Katic. Yeah, this guy gets around.
