LOS ANGELES—Ideal Image Models looks to shake up the industry by signing two of the biggest industry pioneers, Sean Michaels and Jack Napier. Both legendary studs are award-winning directors and performers with well over 4,000 combined scenes under their belt. These signings cement Ideal Image Models as one of the top agencies for interracial performers.
"I wanted to work with Ideal Image Models because they are a reputable agency that has the best intentions," said Sean Michaels. "They have the ability to help brand out male and female talent, which helps out our careers overall."
Sean Michaels is one of the most respected and recognized performers in the adult industry. A New York native, Sean attended college in Southern California and later the prestigious Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, which led to nude modeling and ultimately the adult industry. He has over 24 years of experience and won numerous awards as a performer and director including AVN’s "Best Group Sex Scene." The gentle bedroom giant has worked with every major production company including Wicked Pictures, Anabolic Video, Evasive Angles, Private Video, Video Team, Elegant Angel, Jules Jordan Video, Mike John Productions, Vivid, Brazzers, and Evil Angel. Sean is still directing for Evil Angel and currently finishing up his novel, "Sean Michaels, My Industry," a working title. Sean looks to continue to uplift his career by allying himself with Ideal Image Models.
"I feel that Ideal is trying to help upgrade talent," said Sean. "I believe by Jack and myself signing with Ideal, it will help educate others on how to become successful in this business."
Jack Napier has been a part of this industry for over 13 years and is one of the most standout performers in the adult industry. He began his career as the poster boy for West Coast Productions, bringing a high energy performance to the bedroom. He started directing in 2000, earning a two-year exclusive contract from Voyeur Media in 2007, where his interracial series was among the highest praised in the industry. It’s Big, It’s Black, It’s Jack won AVN’s award for "Best Interracial Series" three years in a row. Jack has worked for major productions companies including Kink, Evasive Angles, Evil Angel, Elegant Angel, Jules Jordan Video, Wicked Pictures, Reality Kings, Vivid, Brazzers, and West Coast Productions. Jack looks to continue to push his image in a positive light with Ideal Image Models.
"I've known Tee-Reel for a long time," said Jack. "He has always been progressive and positive in my experience with him and I have seen him open up doorways to get into mainstream. It makes sense."
Sean and Jack are highly involved in the community as well. Sean is a consistent donor to the Special Olympics. A documentary about Sean Michaels' life is scheduled to come out in 2013.
Jack has helped run the No Hate (NOH8) campaign, a silent protest against marriage discrimination. He is also a large supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charity in communities. Jack has a role in the mainstream movie Mega Spider, directed by Mike Mendez, schedule to hit stores soon.
