Bob Delmonteque
Bob Delmonteque was not only one of Douglas of Detroit's most popular models he was a gifted photographer in his own right. Working with models from the same Great-Lakes region, his images are sometimes mistaken for the works of Douglas, especially because Delmonteque marketed other photographers' photographs of himself. You can still see Mr. Delmonteque and his amazing physique today on late-night cable, in info-mercials for his own fountain-of-youth wonder drug.
