Marius, the alternative male model interview by the Phlogger

alternative male model interview

For episode 55 of Photography insights, we interview an alternative male model called Marius.  Okay that’s not his real name, but his modelling alias, but that’s what is important and who everybody hires.

I’ve worked with Marius a couple of times at recent charity group shoots in Lincolnshire and he’s a great guy.  He has the character, the laughs and professionalism.  Marius works in the goth style so is normally associated with a vampire.  Knowing this I asked him to portray this for my corpse bride wedding scene, he would be the evil vampire!  He played this role so well and it was then great to work with him again a few months later where we did some dark and low key shots.
