Joseph Sayers (b. October 15, 1983) is a male fashion model best known for his nude centerfold for Abercrombie and Fitch Quarterly, shot by Bruce Weber, and also for the fact that, despite being only 5'6" tall (most male models are at least 5'11"), he has experienced great success as a fashion and commercial model.
Joseph has also fronted notable campaigns for Polo Underwear, DSquared photographed by Steven Klein, and Macy's. He was memorably photographed by Steven Klein wrestling with Lucas Kerr for French Vogue, in addition to editorials in Gentlemen's Options (shot by David Byun), Men's Journal (Aaron Goodman), Instinct, CosmoGirl, XY and Blue magazines. He has also been photographed by Randall Mesdon and Tony Duran to round out a stellar list of photographers, and appeared in a TV commercial for ESPN, an in-store video for Redken, and a music video for the Pet Shop Boys.
Sayers was originally discovered on the ModelLaunch website and was first scouted and signed by agent Adam Silver of Silver Model Management in New York City. Shortly afterward, Sayers also signed with agent Jason Kanner at Major Model Management for fashion modeling work.
This shot is from the now discontinued A&F catalog, which stopped printing because people complained that it was just softcore pornography and wasn't selling clothing, just sex!
Just prior to being discovered on ModelLaunch, Sayers posed nude and masturbated for a photo shoot several days after his 18th birthday, which were then distributed on the Internet by the photographer, Ed Flores. The rights to those photos have since been bought by Sayers in an attempt to stop further distribution, although these pictures can be found online and from others who had purchased the photo sets now looking to make a buck on the auction sites.........
Usually, mainstream modeling agencies steer clear of male models who have done "questionable" photos or porn in their past. This apparently has not hurt Joseph at all, as he is highly in demand to this day as a model. In fact, Joseph Sayers NEVER was truly hurt by these photos surfacing.....it made him more desireable and put a higher demand for his likeness to be used by products and photographers.
Being the kind guy that I am, I have included some of the nude shots from Joseph's past.
I hope you enjoy these snaps!! Let me know if you do, as I have more Joseph Sayers pictures......
See you all soon!
