Philadelphia Model - Parker Hurley

Parker Hurley, a 25 year-old emerging model from Philadelphia, he is the perfect combination of a bad boy with the body of a Greek god. He has heated up the pages of GEIL, Swiss Made and E&A Magazine and became the face of Buckler Swimwear Fall/Winter 2009 and Von Dutch Spring/Summer 2010. With his sculpted six pack abs and chiseled bone structures, he is moving fast up the rungs of the male modeling ladder. I looked further into Parker’s story and he seems to have a great head on his shoulders. Here’s a personal profile that he wrote of himself for Model Mayhem.

Parker is super open-minded and opinionated yet try not to take himself too seriously. it’s a job and  here to have fun and create neat images. he view modeling as a form of art and one of the ultimate forms of self-expression. he love to travel, if expenses are paid for, and up for crazy ideas as long i respect your work and think interesting images will come out of it.
