    Hi All:

    Random question that I’m sure has been asked many times: How would I go about getting into life modeling, either clothed or nude? Is this generally a paid job? It’s something that’s been on my mind, and I’m seriously considering doing it as a part-time job. I live in Los Angeles.

    Thank you, and Happy Holidays!

    Gentle sir:

    Many thanks for your kind comments about my little website. It’s intended to be a basic introduction to life modeling, with sites like yours providing the exhaustive resources once the decision is made and more detailed information is needed.

    Peace and blessings, brother.

    I modeled 30 years ago in college. When I got married I was still working my way through college but my wife hated the idea that I modeled for art classes so I quit modeling and did other jobs to pay the bills. Even though she was a pretty good artist herself she always found it odd and embarrassing that I modeled. One time we met up at a bar with a 80 year old woman who happened to share my then wife’s interest in collectibles. At one point in our conversation my wife apologized to her older friend saying that that she hoped she wouldn’t be scandalized by it but that I was an art model in college. “Oh no,” she replied, “I too was an art model in college.” Guess they had art models in the 1920’s too. Go figure.
