Ford Men’s Bobby Nicholas features in the DKNY Men F/W 10 campaign photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg, styled by Jay Massacret, and with art direction by Hans Dorsinville for Laird & Partners. In late March when the Ford Models Blog first introduced the 6’1″ (185 cm) American we had learned from our Ford Men colleagues that he was actually shooting this campaign, his first, on that very day. Of course it was early days then and we had to keep that information on the down low, which makes this announcement all the more satisfying. Bobby is a model whom we can describe as homegrown because he came straight to us rather than through another agency. He came to our attention after having submitted his photographs to our online scouting application last December and shortly thereafter was signed. Ford Men’s Eric Watts came to us in the same way having submitted his pictures to the agency. Both guys have been an unqualified success.

You can submit your pictures to Ford Models by visiting the online scouting application page. One caveat, however, we receive thousands of applications every month and are able to contact only those whom are of interest.
