    Haha yeah that's a reality of being an art student, I've also done shoots with friends who were subjects. It doesn't phase me anymore; it's just nudity.

    When I went to art college I was a life model for my fellow classmates & some of my teachers. There are a lot of drawings, croques & paintings of me out there.......

    Back when I was 165 lbs dripping wet this coffee table book photographer Ken Haak once wanted to photograph me for some project but he told me I had to build up abs first and to come back in a few months. In retrospect, I regret never doing either - yet another of a long line of surprising missed opportunities. If I had instead of posting pics I'd have just told you to buy the book on Amazon.

    This rings true. I can't help but roll my eyes at guys who think they have to defend themselves from flatterers (i.e. wwyd if an older fat guy emailed you thread). One day, many of them will regret that they didn't appreciate what others saw in them until after they lost it.

    In my late 30s, the week after I competed in physique in gay games (when I was a bantam competitor weighing around 125# - this is about four years before my long ten-year layoff in which I grew obese) I was asked by a young photog building his portfolio if he could photograph me. We signed an agreement that the pics were strictly for non-commercial use, not for reproduction, and in exchange I got $500 and 8x10 good quality prints of the pics of my choice.
    Two years later I'm in A Different Light bookstore in Chelsea and I see my pic on a greeting card! My BF at the time was excited but I was furious - this creep breached our contract. I pulled the stack and explained to the manager. I then called the photographer and we discussed it and he agreed he'd destroy his inventory, and inform the card company who had bought the license for the image. I eventually had to send a cease and desist letter through an attorney.
    The pic is on my profile - b&w. skinny pup under a fishing net.

    I have no idea.... He had me pose like Jesus on a cross for one of them, but he was annoyed that I was hard, which is why we had to stop and fuck, then get back to work, lol. I literally fell asleep while he was drawing me, and I slept for few hours. He did a whole stack of drawings, which he said he'd later turn into paintings. I hope they turned out! I wouldn't have done it if I had any qualms about nudity. At the time, I was really into art history, so it was fun to take part in the timeless tradition of nude paintings.

    It wasn't that I didn't want anyone to see. It was that a contract for a commercial shoot (pics intended for publication) would have given me the right to either a higher fee or royalties, and it angered me that he breached the non-commercial contract. Proud of the pic, not remotely ashamed. But he profited without having my permission.

    Money is the root of all evil.... So the art was taken off the shelves and lawyers profited. What was the point in any of it??? To me it's silly that you think you were owed. All writers and artists get inspiration from the masses, and it transcends commercialism. Get a real job if you want money, and in the meantime keep your clothes on if you think your nudity is something that must be bought.

    Seriously? You think I think my nudity must be bought? Holy fucking leap of logic!!!! LOL. A). It's not art by a long shot. I'm not dilusional. B) I never said I was owed anything but some say according to the agreement. He approached me originally, set the terms, I agreed. It's an ethical question about honoring terms and conditions. If I entered an agreement - willingly - and the terms were to our mutual liking then no harm. He breached them. Period. I didn't pursue him for money he made from the license or the residual sales. I simply stopped him from profiting falsely. Chill.
