This is a very nice photograph of Freddie Shields by Kovert of Hollywood. I wish I had more images of this model.

Theseus George


Theseus George was a bodybuilder in the 1950's. I've seen a few other images of him over the years, but this is my favorite.

I always imagine it would be great to be the fourth member in this game.

Martin Moss and Dale Gilbert by the Western Photography Guild


This photograph of Martin Moss and Dale Gilbert is in the classic style of the Western Photography Guild: the two nude models transcend their photo shoot on a hillside somewhere in Colorado, appearing to have more in common with the immutable forces of nature than with us mortals viewing their digital image decades after it was taken.

Ned Trent

This is the only photograph of Ned Trent I have seen.

The photograph has touches of Pat Milo to it, but I do not know who took it.

David Knight

This is a nice photograph of David Knight, of whom I know nothing.

This looks like a color photograph from the 1950's, but I do not know who took this image.

Don Hawksley



Don Hawksley was a popular model in the late 1950's and 1960's for obvious reasons.

I have come across many images of him in the various beefcake magazines from that time.

My favorite of these is the one in which he's wearing only a tee shirt.

Bob Delmonteque


This is Bob Delmonteque, the most financially successful of all the vintage beefcake models. While others like Steeve Reeves, Richard Dubois and Johnny Weissmuller were certainly much more famous, only Delmonteque went from successful nude model to photographing nude models to training Hollywood stars and even astronauts for NASA to owning a nationwide chain of gyms.

He died November 21, 2011.

Unknown Models


Here are ten photographs of unknown models. A few look familiar, but I am not certain who they are.

I especially like the wrestlers.
