Costumes:
Obviously, we can come up with a custom costume of your choice; here are the most popular looks I have:
Caballero Cowboy; as shown in port; black caballero hat, boots, and gloves, red bandanas tied around waist or neck
Indian Chief; as shown in port; headdress and loin cloth
Victorian Gentleman; black paints and shoes, black top hat, shirt with ruffles around collar and cuffs, vest, jacket

Although I’m kept pretty busy, working at least once a month at an art studio or for an artist, I’m also available for private parties. Recently, I served as a life model for a women’s 50th BDay party in which she simply had her girl friends over to her home, provided them with sketch pads and pencils, and jokingly started the night off by saying, “Girls let’s see some pecs and drink some pinot noir”. A good time was had by all and several women said the experience made them feel empowered and was very liberating. I’ve also served as a life model for bachelorette parties, which inspired two of the participants to enroll in art classes. As mentioned, I’m a mature, experienced, and dependable, life model. Contact me to discuss your next event!!!

In addition to working with some great artists, I have had the pleasure of working with some great photographers.

The link below contains various pics of me when I was in my mid 40’s that were captured by a variety of photographers, including my wife of 33+ years, Cyndi:

Additionally, I offer a 2 hour course on Life Modeling. Dallas is a great market for Life Models, especially male Life Models, in which you can earn an average of $20.00/hour. If you land as a model at a college for the whole semester or encounter an artist who wants to work with you directly, your earnings potential is even greater. Being a Life Model is much more than just stripping down and striking a pose. There are concepts, practices, and behaviors, that, if mastered, can assure that you are consistently working and requested. If you would like to learn more about an upcoming Life Model Workshop, contact me.
