Unknown Models Photographed by Russ Warner

UPDATED March 23, 2017: Here are two photographs of unknown models taken by Russ Warner, one of the best beefcake photographers of the 1950's.

Today, I identified models in this post and removed five images from here. You can now find these elsewhere on the blog when you click on the name labels below this post for George Parker, Bill Logan and Russ Warner.

Lance Arlen



I know nothing about Lance Arlen, though I suspect he modeled during the 1950's.

Vic Seipke






Here are several more photographs of Vic Seipke, arguably one of the most famous beefcake models of the 1950's.

Jim Collette, Tommy Evans, AMG









Here are six photographs by AMG of the hugely popular Jim Collette wrestling the fairer-haired Tommy Evans. I believe I read somewhere that AMG's Bob Mizer loathed photographing these wrestling scenarios, but followed each decade's changing tastes. I believe these photographs were taken in the mid to late 1960's.

Al Wilisch








I know nothing about Al Wilisch other than he appears in beefcake magazines from the 1950's. Bruce of Los Angeles photographed him, too, but I do not know who took these photographs.

Phil Knight




I believe all of these photographs were taken by Bruce of Los Angeles. I especially like the one of Phil using the skillet in the kitchen. It is included in a sprawling pictorial spread featuring Phil in Volume 12 of The Male Figure by Bruce of Los Angeles.

John Weidemann



Here are seven photographs of John Weidemann by Bruce of Los Angeles. These are some of my all-time favorite beach photographs of a male model. I also like the photograph of him wrestling Kim Fox - they look like titans.



Kurt Freeman



Kurt Freeman appears in beefcake magazines from the 1950's. My favorite are the ones he did with Bruce of Los Angeles, most notably as the Indian.
