Dan Flood

Originally from Chicago, Dan is now a resident of Fort Worth Texas, who began modeling when he was asked to model for a clothing store. Since then he has done sunglass ads, clothing ads, live mannequin, fashion shows, fitness modeling, and advertisements for Crimson in the City, Fuse, Jet Lag Jeans, OutlawEyewear.com, The Voice, D magazine as well as in many biker ad magazines, all in Dallas.


He dreams one day of working with Prada and Versace. “I’m Italian so modeling for my family’s country would be amazing.” He believes that to become successful in the modeling industry you must “keep yourself current and fresh. Stay open to new ideas, always stay focused.” When it comes to rejection as a model, “every door closed is another one open. Never give up, keep researching and network.”


He loves to model because “I love working with different photographers and seeing the end results. I love getting proofs and seeing my shots in action.”He believes that what sets him apart in the industry is his work ethic. “I enjoy working when there is a certain shot we need to get. I am very much disciplined and always striving to be better.”


Dan’s advice for up and coming models is to “volunteer for all types of work, within reason, and always try to learn from other people in the industry. You are never too old to learn.”
