Mayhem # 1610930
About MeI have been fortunate to be able to retire at age 60 from my vocations in the digital imaging field and pursue my hobbies that include Modeling, Digital Photography, Martial arts, and Physical Fitness.
In modeling, I enjoy shooting different concepts in almost any genre. I specialize in creating and portraying different characters from my age group, and have not yet failed to create the character that the photographer has envisioned.
More about me:
1. Happily married to my wife since the age of 21, and not looking to change.
2. Hair color is "salt & pepper"
3. Creative, & love collaborating with other creative people.
4. Won't be a no show, last minute cancel, or late without good cause.
5. Will come to the shoot prepared & ready to be an active & creative asset.
6. Open to any & all guidance / constructive criticism.
7. Work out daily. Can physically do anything (within reason) to get the shot.
8. NASDS, NAUI, & PADI certified diver for underwater shoots.
9. No tattoos or piercings. Have scars...from "indiscretions of my youth".
10. Black belt in Bujikan Budo Taijutsu...yes "I am a Ninja."
As with all Gods creations, the human body is beautiful. I don't mind posing nude, however, I won't do porn. I will also pose nude with a female if there are safeguards in place for her and I to to feel comfortable.
JUST ONE MORE THING: My intent here is about modeling and creating art. I am way too busy to do social networking.
