About Me

I am a mature fine art figure model who keeps himself in shape with yoga, light weights and football!
I enjoy being being part of the creative process using the human body in art for artists, animators and photographers.
I have many years of experience as a photographic model, originally working in England and France as a model for Naturist promotional videos and travel brochures with Mike Herring..
As an artist and photographer myself I can draw upon my experience from both sides of the lens and the palette!
I also write poetry and life style articles, having been a long time contributor to H&E Naturist magazine with many photographs including a self portrait with my partner that made the cover of the August 2015 issue. (see gallery)

Since 2004 I have been working as a model full time at the schools, college and art groups in Vancouver, including the digital photography programmes at VanArts, Vancouver Photo Workshops, Langara College, Emily Carr University and Focal Point, as well as private photographers.

In December of 2016 I will be returning to England and would like to add some more outdoor nudes both in natural and urban surroundings, as well as continuing exploring the shibari and bondage work that I have recently experienced.
I would be available to work with photographers in the London/ South East and possibly further afield, especially Somerset and Wiltshire.

I also have a MM portfolio for my portrait/lifestyle non-nude work at http://www.modelmayhem.com/891271





Becoming a model...

I first began modelling way back in 1984, when a naturist photographer, Mike Herring, developed some of my holiday photos and contacted me with a view to hiring the model I had used.    So I visited Mike's studio and after several successful sessions decided that a new alternative career might be beckoning me.
Fifteen years later and Mike and I have recently returned from an assignment in France where I acted as both model and assistant.
In between times I have lived in the USA, where my modelling career really took off after I replied to an advert in the local newspaper for 'nude models'. It turned out to be a local adult education centre and although being nude in front of one person isn't too daunting, the reality of being nude in front of a dozen or more was a different proposition!
However I took the plunge and  once I had gotten used to hearing the class talk about me as an object that was not too easy to draw, I soon found myself so relaxed that I almost fell asleep on my first job!! 
I then travelled out west to Portland Or, where I found a greater need for models, so that I was able to maintain my new found career and also meet some very interesting people into the bargain, eventually doing some private modelling for local artists. I also found myself running several sessions of 'model only courses' which was a real challenge to my creative ability and artistic temperament!

When I returned to England I was lucky enough to find full time work, but but decided to sign on as a model with the local education authority becoming a regular with the art centres around town.
Little would I have thought thirty years ago that a few naturist photos would lead me into being naked in front of hundreds of people and probably appearing on many art school walls across two continents!(having also modelled in France as well as England and America).
