I’ve been in an athletic state of mind ever since writing last week’s Sports Stud. That Tal Evans is all kinds of hotness. Since I picked an Australian athlete slash model for that feature, I thought I’d head back Down Under and pick a model slash athlete for today’s Model Behavior.
Meet Aussie Max Papendieck. This former collegiate basketball player is now an in-demand male model. He moved from his native Australia to the US for a basketball scholarship. He began modeling in Miami where he also completed his business degree. The 25-year-old has worked with renowned photographers like Greg Vaughan and Bruce Weber. In fact, the latter got him his first gig – an editorial in Spanish Vogue.
Papendieck has appeared in campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch, Ralph Lauren fragrance Big Pony and worked with major department stores like Macy’s and Saks. Currently, he’s repped by Soul Artist Management. Check out plenty of photos of Max showing off his Fight Club-ready abs below.
