Life Modeling
Art Photography

Welcome! As a freelance professional art model, I enjoy helping artists and students create and learn. Whether you're considering a male model for a project or practice, looking for figurative reference material, or just enjoy visual art involving the human form ... feel free to explore and drop me a note if you have feedback or inquiries.

Availability Outlook

Currently (as of Summer 2022), inquiries are welcome but availability varies and depends on assignment.

ART PHOTOGRAPHY: new bookings in the MD/DC area usually feasible if scheduling and logistics allow; outdoor sessions given priority during warm months!

TRADITIONAL ARTS: If you are an artist, school, or group for whom I already have been a life model I will accommodate new/additional bookings whenever feasible. If we've not worked together yet, you're welcome to inquire and I will try to schedule with you -- it just may take a couple months.

BODYPAINTING: I will try to accommodate new projects, but it will depend greatly on scheduling and arrangements. I will if I can manage it!

EVERYTHING ELSE: please inquire and let me know what kind of collaboration you have in mind. No promises but I will try if I'm able!

It's been my fortune to model for a range of skill levels, from beginner to world class instructor -- and in several mediums: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, bodypainting, and videography. I try to keep rates affordable but in line with professional norms. I can only occasionally consider requests to donate modeling time (or TFP/TFCD equivalent). Being part of a collaboration to make or learn something in the creative arts helps power through challenging aspects of modeling! I invite inquiries of nearly any type.
