About me
MODELS: I can only work with you if you are over 18. Please also be willing to get up uncomfortably early to shoot.

Internationally published conceptual fine art photographer and self-portrait artist.

I've been in front of the camera for a long time as Artos the Bear: http://www.modelmayhem.com/artosthebear

Now I'm stepping behind the lens. It's been incredibly fulfilling for me to bring my own visions to life and create the art I want. I see the world mythically, symbolically and spiritually. I want my photos to have these same qualities. I take a lot of inspiration from fairy tales, myths, stories and music. If there are any fairy tales or myths which especially resonate with you, please mention that to me and we may be able to create a photo idea around it!

I'm looking for male and female models, 18 and up, who would like to work with me, who are not afraid to be raw, emotional, and vulnerable; who have an ability to EMOTE. I need deep emotions from you, and I need to see it not only in your face, but your whole body. We are telling stories together, and you carry a big part of it! So be ready to be raw and brave!

You do not have to be willing to do nudes to work with me, but I will be able to use you for more ideas if you are :)

When I shoot someone, there is a specific end image I have in my head; a goal picture to reach. Usually each picture is very detailed and tells it's own story. For each setup I use you for, you will get one beautiful, high-quality, retouched image. If we shoot two different setups together, that means you're only getting two different shots from the shoot. My shoots are not the kind of shoots where you walk away with tons of photos... this is for creating a few, incredible images which you will be able to display with pride. My goal is quality over quantity where photography is concerned. The other good thing is that my shoots tend to be fairly short, so you won't be devoting your entire day to me. I should also note that I do not send out CDs full of raw images. The photos I create often require a lot of post-production, and as such I will only release the retouched photos.

I only offer TFCD for two reasons. One, I'm a starving artist. Two, I want to work with people who are into what I do. I don't want to work with anyone who's only there for a paycheck. You will get your image(s) in a timely manner, they will be fully edited, beautiful and you will love them :)

Because of the mysterious, other-worldly feel to many of my photos, your face may not be showcased as much as some models are used to. I'm going for an overall look and feel, and sometimes having your eyes closed, your face turned away or otherwise obscured creates a much more interesting image that if you were staring straight at the lens. Please be comfortable with this idea if you want to work with me. I can promise that you will always get some photos which show your face clearly, but there may be whole setup which need a less direct feel. Look, you're beautiful! You've already proved it :) Trust me that sometimes less face is more.

I don't get along with escorts. No matter how quietly they stand to the side, I still feel like my shoulder is being stared over. This is very not good for creativity. I'm happy to set up a coffee meeting with models who would like to meet me beforehand and make sure I'm not going to snatch them.

Because of my odd work schedule, I am mostly available weekdays. My schedule changes all the time though, so we'd better discuss this in an email. Since I do a lot of shooting out in nature, we are somewhat at the mercy of the sun. This means my shoots often have to happen very early in the morning, before the sun gets high in the sky. If I could make the sun rise later, I would, but that's just the way things are.

Be bold and brave! Inspire me! Let's make beautiful art together!
