Mainly an illustrator, I’m a contemporary 2D visual artist with a broad range of interests that I use to fuel my artistic fire. My leading art forms are:
I am based in Hamilton, ON, Canada.
While I mainly draw and paint (graphite, ink, oils and digital), and have spent a number of years in graphic design, photography has always been a significant form of artistic expression for me. From weddings to architecture, I’m quite flexible. Being primarily an illustrator who falls on human anatomy studies heavily for renedring figures, I honestly don't require the use of models often but I am always interested in expanding my photography repertoire. That's why I've joined MM. I'm looking for models; pro and complete amateur of all (and I do mean all) physiques who are interested in a collaborative process in developing new art.
Modes of Flight (MOF) – the name inspired by an engraving by “the Father of Modern Art”, Francisco de Goya, is my enterprise. You can find MOF at its main website (www.modesofflight.com), and on Facebook (www.facebook.com/pages/Modes-of-Flight/111023208951492).
MOF is not a modelling agency, and will only maintain files on models and potential models suitable for my artwork and photography. Models and potential models may be asked to complete the Modes of Flight Model Questionnaire. This questionnaire is not a job application form, contract or agreement. It is a means of tracking potential live action models for the creation of artistic illustration and photography. Participants may periodically be asked to update the information. MOF is not responsible for brokering or referring models to other artists and photographers, referring other artists and photographers to models or finding modelling assignments or other jobs for models.
When models are required for fine art illustrative or photographic purposes, I will use only amateur or professional models consigned on the MOF Model Release or MOF Time for CD Agreement and Model Release. In cases where it is not practicable to pay a participating model, the model may be asked to sign a Modes of Flight Unpaid Model Release.
You can also contact me through my art blog (http://themofman.wordpress.com/) where I’m known as TheMOFMan, and RedBubble site (www.redbubble.com/people/allanh?utm_source=RB&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=promo_badge_rb_logo) and Flickr (www.flickr.com/photos/modes_of_flight).
Other than work for illustrations, I have an interest in producing portraiture for self-promotion.
My wife is my muse. Every model will meet her. She may also need someone to model apparel.
I am open to producing nude work but it is not a must (see here: http://themofman.wordpress.com/mof-on-nudity-in-photography/).
