Mayhem # 23668
I'm a male model/actor/activist/vocalist (formerly of the band, Dark Eden, now of Nemesis Imperium and Charles Lupula & The Soldiers of God), who is available for work in photos, video, or performance pieces. I have a wiry build, but am able to go through a variety of looks, ranging from professional to goth/fetish to more metal to a more Western style. I have done internet, photo, video, and runway work, although the majority of the work I have done has been goth/fetish/alternative modeling. I do not mind nudity and I do not mind bondage work, but I am not interested in being in porn. It's not that I have a problem with people getting off to my image, it's that I refuse to be part of anything cheesy.
Basically, I have been focusing on my music the last few years, so I have been out of the modeling/acting loop, but I am very much looking to get back into the swing of things, starting now. I have a pierced lip, one tattoo on the back of my neck, and my hair is back to being collar-bone length and straight. As you can see in my pictures, I have done a variety of different looks. I am always open to new ideas, however, and have been told that I am a pleasure to work with. Also, for anyone interested. My rates depend on how much I like your work, really, and I am willing to travel, but if it is too far out of New York State, I would require compensation.
I should also note that, although I do not, in any way, fancy myself as a professional photographer, I would like to, in the future, become more involved with models behind the camera. I also have directed the promotional video for old my band's song, "3 Years, 10 Months, 8 Days" (which is available to view on our website), and am starting pre-production on a lot of work for my new band's videos, which are meant to be more like mini-movies than your typical promotional work. Anyone interested in participating or helping out on that is welcome to contact me.
Also, and I have to say this, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO! I do not really have time to come up with photography ideas for you. If you see me, have a vision, and say, "I like that guy's look, I should use him in X and Y!" then I'm all for it. If you see me, and think, "I wonder if there's any particular shoots he'd like to do," then don't bother me. As a model, I am your canvas, I am your clay. A painter doesn't ask the paint what it wants to be turned into. Don't do that with me.
I am currently debating as to whether or not to redye my hair black, as right now it's back to being its natural reddish-brown.
