PROSPECTIVE MODELS: Please read the following before contacting me!
SEEKING EROTIC MODELS ONLY:
I shoot exclusively what is known as "erotic nudes". In order to work with me ALL models are required to pose fully nude with erections. Specifically, hired models agree to have their entire body photographed, including full rear and frontal nudity. In other words, my photography leaves nothing to the imagination. I prefer to work with models who are true exhibitionists, so if you have any discomfort or hesitation about doing this type of work, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME.
Additionally, if you are concerned that your family, friends, co-workers, or employers will see the images (and they almost certainly will), or if you feel the need to micro-manage how and where your images are used, then please DO NOT contact me...I am NOT interested in photographing you.
However, if you are completely comfortable posing for this type of image and you think you possess the necessary physical qualifications (see below), I would be delighted to hear from you. I give higher priority to prospective models who have been referred to me by a qualified source (agents, photographers, and/or a previous model of mine) that can vouch for your current physical conditioning and temperament.
AGE REQUIREMENT: - First and foremost, ALL models must be 18 years of age or older and have a government-issued ID with a valid birth date. - I have no maximum age limit. Many of the models I photograph range in age from their 20s to their early 30s; however, I wholeheartedly welcome the opportunity to photograph men who are 35 and over, as long as they meet my physical requirements.
PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS - Primarily I am looking for athletic, well-defined, models with muscular physiques, chiseled abs and jawline, slim waist, and full pecs and glutes. Take a look at the models in the various galleries of this website to see some good examples. - I reserve the right to cancel the photo shoot if you do not arrive in the necessary physical condition and/or appropriately groomed.
GROOMING: - An all-over tan is a great asset; however, I definitely prefer models NOT to use lotion or spray tans, or lotion with bronzer...these types of tans never look right in photos. If you prefer not to tan, that's fine, what's most important is that your skin is generally even in tone. - I like models to have pubic hair and underarm hair; however, some trimming is acceptable for aesthetic reasons. Otherwise, the rest of the body can be clean-shaven if that's what we mutually agree upon.
MODEL RELEASE AND DOCUMENTATION: I require models to sign a release and models must provide (on the day of the shoot) a government-issued ID for me to copy for my files.
COMPENSATION: I pay for most shoots with a standard fee. We can discuss those arrangements once we've made initial contact.
SHOOT LOCATION: - I shoot mostly at my home in Texas, but sometimes in Los Angeles, as well. - I will gladly provide airline transportation to and from the shoot location.
IMAGE USAGE AND COPYRIGHT: - My images are primarily intended for my various publication projects, which include coffee table books and calendars, and possible use as individual prints for sale. - I am usually happy to provide models with a very small number of low-resolution digital images of my choosing for use in promoting themselves as models (on ModelMayhem.com, for example). These images are not to be used for commercial purposes. - I never provide models with prints or high-resolution digital images under any circumstances. - I own full copyright to the images, no exceptions.
PRIVATE COMMISSIONS and TFCD: At the moment, I do not accept private commissions and I almost never do trade (TFCD) shoots; however, that may change at some point.
After reading all this, and you would still like to work with me, I invite you to complete the online submission form found at my contact page. When you go to that form be aware that you will need to attach a recent photo of yourself - a quick snapshot will do but the picture should be shot in a well-illuminated area and it should provide an unobstructed view of your head and physique.
I look forward to hearing from you!
