One of our favorite models is heating up South Beach in Florida. Jack Weisensel of Next Models in Miami and Locke Agency in Greensboro, NC, recently had a steamy shoot with photographer David Vance…and we are delighted to bring it to you below.
Jack proclaimed that David Vance “produced a large number of my newest favorite images” from this shoot. Jack stated that the shoot took about four hours at David’s studio in his South Florida home. Jack explained that within this collaboration he found David to be one of his favorite photographers, “because he’s so upfront and not afraid to state his opinion…and doesn’t get offended by others’ input…all while creating great works of art.” Jack added that he intends to shoot with David again in the future.
Likewise, David was pleased with shooting 21 year old Jack. “As young as Jack is,” David continued, “he’s actually been doing this for a while so he’s a real pro in front of the camera…and a lot of fun! We laughed the entire time. I’m looking forward to working with him again when he’s back in Miami.”
Jack actually started modeling at age 15. With brown hair and dreamy hazel eyes, Jack is a natural in front of the camera. But the 6’1” tall model is also an exemplary student. He’s a fixture on the Dean’s List at Waldorf University, where he’s studying business. Jack is based near Charlotte, NC in Granite Quarry. He loves fast cars and hiking, and played football in high school. Jack has recently been training his 3 dogs. Two of the canines are mutts and the third one is a nine-month old Great Dane that already weighs 140 pounds. Diesel, the Great Dane, is a bit of a social media celebrity. Jack laughed that Diesel “has more followers than me on Instagram.”
On May 24, 2017, Jack’s diehard fans were able to catch a glimpse of him on ABC-TV’s “Dirty Dancing” remake. Jack spent several days around Lake Lure in Western North Carolina as an extra in the movie, and he got some quality face time in a key cafeteria scene.
Miami-based photographer David Vance’s images tend to convey a sense of beauty that is immortal and innocent. One senses that the soul of David Vance is more important to the photograph than the camera. A certain delicacy is sensed in his powerful portfolio of the male form.
Of Italian descent, David Vance has been surrounded by the atmosphere of his heritage since childhood. The art, the sculpture, the music, the literature and cuisine of his world exposed him at an early age to the classic of observing life. He sees beauty through the eyes of his ancestors, and creates beauty with their same vision.

The gorgeous images of Jack were photographed in June, 2017.
