About Me

I love what I do, if you do me and let's work!

I have been painting people for more than 20 years. I teach classes on the subject. If you want to know more, just ask.

Here is what others have said about working with me.

"Rich is a blast to work with! Besides being an expert bodypainter, he made me feel totally comfortable and even allowed me to have input throughout the process. I'd love to work with him again!"- Sheena Salazar MM#1653819

"Thank you for making my first body paint experience a comfortable and fun one. Would love to work together again soon!" - Ari Elle (Model) Mayhem # 3403330

" He's always brought snacks and is constantly catering to the models' level of comfort. He continues to consistently produce amazing body paint projects, to top it all off. All around, great person to know and work with!!" - Hendryx Friesen (Model) MM 2091490

"Rich is an amazing body painter. Before working with Rich I had been painted before, but he was the most stress-free painting session I have even encountered. Not only did he set my mind as ease, he gave me great advice on being a model and an artist.
Rich is 100% a professional and a 1000% a true gentleman. He's courteous to his models and his supporting staff. He is truly a master artist capable of completing any project put before him in a timely and professional manner with amazing results." - Janet P (Model)

" Some might forget that bodypaint models are naked but he was always courteous to check in with me to make sure I was comfortable. Working with Rich was one of my most memorable experiences in the industry. It was a very unique and enjoyable experience watching him work on my body as his canvas as well as FEEL my body become a work of art.  Although we were working together to create an image, it never felt like work because he made it so much fun! " - Tina Kristine (Model/Retired)

"Rich Diltz has been one of the best collaborators I have worked with. Not only does he suggest his vision he listens to client needs and does all this in a very open and straightforward way. Truly a person you would want on-set with you." Cecilio Asuncion, Film Producer

" I have worked with Rich numerous times on bodypaint modeling jobs, one of those being one of my first photoshoots when I started modeling about 9 years ago. His level of professionalism , skill, and making me feel comfortable while being bodypainted is beyond what I can even express in words.

Rich has always been such a pleasure to work with that I actually think I bug him about working with him again ! Haha. His Personality and genuine care for the models feelings and comfort level is just so amazing... and that is very important when being body painted !!

I'll tell ya this... My fiancé Jose Canseco will ONLY let me work with Rich for bodypaint jobs because of how amazing he is at his job... and his professional and making the model feel comfortable at all times . Even my conservative Persian mother ...who almost had a heart attack when I did a few bodypaint modeling jobs at the playboy mansion... has Rich's photo of me body painted framed and in her living room .

He truly is the best in the industry and deserves to be recognized as that. He is so humble , yet a hustler in his career ... And I always hope and pray for the day the world can see how awesome he is!!! "
- Xoxoxo Leila Knight

My Face Book Page

This is me, I can be a bit of a goofball, but I am very serious when it comes to excellent images, artistic creativity, and model safety.

I am no longer a Model Mayhem Moderator but I was for 5 or 6 years, I think. Please don't contact me here about Moderator duties... that is what the Contact a Mod feature is for.

My rates are flexible if you have me in mind for a project, and I am open to all trade offers though I am fairly selective when it comes to photographers and I expect shared copyright if I trade.
