Male Nude Model

Hello, I am a male who is currently looking to try some nude modeling for artists and or photographers. I have no previous modeling experience, just something that I would like to try.
If you are an artist, or photographer and would like a model let me know. Amatuer or professionals accepted.

Hello,
I am a photographer looking for a nude model,  and I stumbled across your ad.  Are you still interested?   Please let me know,  as I’ll be shooting in the near future.   Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks,

Randy, yes I would be interested.  Just a little about myself.  I am 28 white male.  I am 6’4″ 210 slender build.  Working out trying to cut dow a little weight.  I have never done any modeling before.  I am kid of doing this as a little fantasy that I have had of being photographed nude.  The only thing I ask is that this stay as discreet as possible.  I would rather not have my head in any of the shots, not sure if thats something we can work around or not.  I just want to be discreet.

Would this be a paying gig?  Do you have any sample photos that I could look at?

Andy,
As a matter of fact, your head will not be in any of the shots.  Typically,  I photograph wild animals.  However, for my newest project,  I am trying something a little different.  I’m going to experiment with superimposition, whereby I will place the heads of real wildlife onto the body of a naked male.  So, in other words, one photo might feature your naked body with the head of a rhinoceros.   I should probably mention that I will need you to pose appropriately.  For example,  if I’m using your body with the head of a tiger on the prowl,  I’ll need you to be on all fours,  with your back arched.   Because you are tall, slender, and likely well-endowed,  you’ll be perfect for the project.   Most wild animals are at least 6 feet in length, and possess hefty genitalia.   I won’t be able to pay you much, initially.  However, if I like the photos,  I’m going to turn them into a binded, glossy portfolio entitled “Manimals” and distribute copies to several publishing houses.  Assuming “Manimals” will be a top-seller,  I’d be happy to give you a percentage of the profits?

When can you start?  I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
RP

Right now I dont have any other pictures of my genitals besides some close ups on my cell phone, which I could send to you.  Would you like any other pictures to look at to make sure I would fit the description?

Andy,
I’d rather you didn’t send me any photos of your genitalia.  That area will not be focal point of the photos.  If necessary,  I can always have you wear a clay fitting or some sort of rubber tubing to make yourself appear larger.   However, this situation would only arise if I decide to include photos of your body featuring the head of a horse or an elephant.  Incidentally,  the Blue Whale has the largest penis in the animal kingdom,  but I won’t be including any marine life in “Manimals”.   Do you have any photos in which you are posing as an animal?  Perhaps a Grizzly Bear or a Tibetan Red Deer?  That might help.

Thanks,
RP

I do not have any pictures of me posing as an animal.  I really dont know how to get any of those pics.  I need to talk to my wife about this whole thing before I fully commit to it.

I have a few questions.
How much would you be willing to pay upfront?
Do you have a studio?
Will anyone else be in the studio?

If you would decide to use my pictures, and publish them and the book does well.  What percentage would you be willing to pay me?

I just want to know more details before I present this whole thing to my wife.  Might be a tough sell, it might also be something I would have to do without her knowing.

Thanks

Andy,
Well, first, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get a picture of you posing as an animal.   Just strip off your clothes, get down on your hands and knees, and ask your wife or somebody passing by to snap a photo.
Like, I said, I can’t pay you much up front.  Maybe 3-5 dollars per usable photo.   I use my apartment as a studio.  Its a studio apartment,  so it seemed appropriate.  And, for this particular project, I’ve invested in quite a bit of decoration to make the studio look like the natural habitat of several different animals.  Nobody else will be in the studio.  I’ve had one woman agree to the project,  but initially I’ll keep you two separate.   At some point, I would be interested in taking some mating photos.
It’s hard to estimate how well “Manimals” will do,  but 10 percent is pretty typical.   I’m sure your wife will like the idea.  It’s going to be a great coffee table book.

Thanks,
RP
