About Me

We are the Croquis Cafe (, an artist’s resource for those interested in drawing from the figure including cartoonists and fine artists. We post a weekly video that replicates the experience of an art school figure drawing class. We depend entirely on donations from our viewers. Our videos are posted on YouTube and Vimeo. Currently we have 309,000 YT subscribers, in 188 countries.

We are always looking for new models.

How it works:
The poses are relatively short: 1, 2 or 5 minutes. We're looking for interesting, dynamic poses, incorporating twisting or bending… In other words interesting poses for drawing. In all, you’ll be posing for 36 to 40+ poses (standing, seated, crouching, reclining, etc.), so please be prepared with your ideas.

A typical session is about 3 hours. We ask that you bring a photo ID; this is used to show that you are over 21. You will be receiving a company check before you leave that day.

The work is nude but not provocative or pornographic in nature. We ask that you bring a robe or other drape. You're welcome to bring an escort if that would make you feel more comfortable, although they do not get paid. There will be only two people (plus you and an escort) in the room during the shoot, myself (videographer) and my partner/wife, Sharyn (production assistant).

We’ll be video recording the session, but we also take still photos of each pose, and add them to our Croquis Cafe Photo Archive.

Our studio is located in Winter Haven, FL
