About Me

Art Minds is known internationally for creating authentic photographic images of contemporary athletic men for mass-market and promotional products, including calendars, posters, gift bags, books, cards, framed art, retail display and any product requiring a masculine, sexy male image.

Art Minds' signature style presents his subjects in settings and wardrobe that are context appropriate, naturally masculine, athletic, handsome, sexy, sharp and clean.

Models are compensated on a royalty basis for usage of their images, and referrals are frequently requested by casting directors and television and commercial producers. We are always interested in hearing from exceptional male model candidates from anywhere in the USA.

A model's primary value is in his "image", not his "experience." New models commonly state in their profile that they are seeking "experience" in front of the camera. "Experience" will not make you better looking. A photographer experienced in producing published images can direct a model to produce exceptional marketable images, if you have the "look": a handsome face, a lean, athletic and proportional physique and a welcoming smile.

If you truly believe you have commercial potential as a model, don't waste your time working with "guys with cams" with no experience in the "business" of photography. If you think you've got what it takes to be a successful model to appear in print, don't settle for "time for prints" (TFP).

Exceptionally handsome and fit models deserve to be compensated for their image, and shouldn't sign away rights to their image to photographers or camera owners not actively working in the publication market. And you don't need a "portfolio" to book commercial work for the first time, and even if you did, an inexperienced photographer whose work has never been published is NOT the person to guide you to produce marketable images.
