I have experience working with a number of semi-pro and professional photographers but I would still say that I am an experienced amateur who has had the opportunity to meet a lot of photographers, make-up artists, and models while traveling.
I am willing to travel but might need to have at least some expenses covered. I'm a full-time English teacher and my schedule is usually most flexible in the summers and around government holidays. If you're in whatever town I'm in (currently Moscow, Russia) I'm willing to entertain offers. Since I'm not doing this to pay the rent, I willing to collaborate on projects that interest or amuse me on a TFCD basis but paid gigs always take priority. I am willing to consider far more varieties of genre than what I've listed but I've kept it conservative for the sake of an initial consultation.
Between my wife, Kira Hagen, doing travel and model photography and one of our Moscow friends being the photo editor for Blacksquare, a Russian art and fashion magazine, I started modeling in a more professional context. I wouldn't object to a paying gig, honestly, but I know how much work and luck goes into making money from art so for now modeling is a side-project. Even when I ended up on the cover of a romance novel it was from a TFCD shoot that was put together as a last-minute lighting and equipment test.
I have some theater experience and am easy going and have enjoyed all my shots. My favorite genre to work in is historical and fantasy shots. I end up doing all manner of shots and looks from Vikings and Hitmen to Hippies and Jesus (of the King James variety) although I've just as many comments that my (casual) photos make people think of Odin more than any other god, and he's the one I'm closest too so that's fitting. But for the sake of art and whimsy, I'm not limited to any pantheon, mythology, story, or vision. So whether you're looking for a hero, a villain, or something in-between, I'm willing to entertain your ideas.
My personal/professional background is medieval Scandinavian literature, viking period living history reenactment, security services and consulting, and ESL Training and Tutoring.
Photos are a mix of modern fashion, travel, historical reenactment, and a bit of costuming and fantasy. I have a lot of viking-period gear, garb, weapons, and jewelry available.
As an artist, I've also done theatrical costuming and prosthetic makeup. I have some pics of that work somewhere but they were all done with amateur pocket cams and will need some cleaning up. I have no piercings, tattoos or other body art. But like my viking ancestors, I have plenty of jewelry.
