Chicago is a beautiful city that clearly takes pride in the way it looks. Bold and industrious, yet full of life and creativity, it is a place full of diversity and beauty. The warm seasons practically vibrate with life and activity, but winter is cold and its wind is well known. But there is an answer to those chilly days and frosty nights and his name is David Davila.  This Latino is a Chicago native who puts the same effort into his physique that the city does to its streets, and his images have been steaming up the lenses of a number of noted photographers as he makes his mark in the world of fitness and underwear modeling.

David first came to my attention after viewing images by the incredibly talented Allan Spiers, who incorporated the models’ affinity for sports and working out into the photo shoots. He is seen in natural looking athletic poses wearing nothing more than a baseball glove and cap. The sport theme would carry over into other shoots with different photographers, and David has now sexed up the image of football, boxing, wrestling and soccer.

There are certain features that make David stand out, yet at the same time creating a sense of familiarity. This dark haired beauty could fall into a number of ethnic categories including Middle Eastern, mixed African American, Greek and his native Hispanic origins. This broad appeal is what has enticed the artists who want to photograph him as well as the viewers who just love looking at him. He is still in the early stages of his modeling career, but here at BLISS, I’d like to go on record as saying that we are likely to see much more in the future.
