I'm Nick. Welcome to my Model Mayhem Page.
I've been Modeling the past three years and I'm having the time of my life. I'm in the gym 5 days a week and running 20-30 miles a week so I'm in shape almost year round or can get there quickly. I am versatile and can grow or trim body, facial, and pubic hair as needed per shoot.
It is my goal to have a dynamic and diverse portfolio. I prefer photography that makes a statement or invokes an emotional response in the viewer. Therefore, I'd prefer working with photographers who consider themselves artists and are passionate about what they do and driven by their craft. I value commercial/fashion/editorial shoots as much as I do underwear/nude shoots. And I am not a prude, and I consider nude work an art form, so I'm willing to push the boundaries of erotic art with photographers who are innovative but still respectful. I also have experience shooting with other models.
I prefer to discuss the creative ideas thoroughly and collaborate before the actual shoot. A detailed description of how the shoot will unfold is also very helpful. This helps me to prepare for it and will help to make the shoot a successful one for all parties involved. I always show up early and am always prepared to work. The photographers I have had the privilege to work with always compliment me on my professionalism. They say I'm fun and easy to work with and that I'm willing to do what it takes to get the best shots for the project. If you are a photographer that is looking to "up" your port, then I'm the "go to" model for you. Please see "References" below.
Feel free to leave a comment or criticism on my profile, it helps me to grow. Send me a message if you would like to work together. I'm always willing to travel per my work schedule and if some expenses are covered. My rates are reasonable and paid work gets first priority. I am willing to do TFP/CD shoots for top photographers also.
I've had the good fortune to work with a number of creative, resourceful, and passionate photographers who love their craft. And for that, I'm eternally grateful.

"Wow! From the comfort of the studio to the fabulous ruins of Detroit, you brought your "A" Game once again and were still smiling after three intense days of shooting.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your great attitude, your willingness to try new things, and your boundless energy (even in the intense summer heat). I didn't think we could top our shoot last winter - - - but we did!" --JGH Photography
