Commercial Modelling

As well as acting, since retiring during Covid, I have also been undertaking a number of commercial modelling assignments, including music videos and quiz shows. These have not been as numerous as acting jobs but they have been a lot of fun and very varied. 

 

One of the first ones I did was for a French Hand Bag company called Amelie Pichard in a hospital setting. The theme was about a lady giving birth to two handbags! It may seem a strange theme but it was a combination of two themes; Amelie Pichard having started (given birth) to her handbag company ten years ago and then more recently actually given birth. I played a hippy grandfather in a Joseph and the Amzing Technicolour Dreamcoat type outfit. The three photos above are taken from the shoot.

Another early modelling assignment I did was the shoot for which I am most known, I appeared in a "Beta-Squad" video trying to convince a panel that I was the ex-boyfriend of a young very pretty model. Its quite common now that I get recognised when I'm on other acting/modelling jobs for this. The Beta Squad are a group of young black londoners who have huge following on Youtube amongst the 20-30 year old age group. However if you are over 30 its unlikely you'll have heard of them. You can watch my performance by clicking on the following link. It demonstrates my improv skills as it was all unscripted.

Another notable shoot was for a Korean clothes brand called Neithers. The brand is targeted at young Koreans and the campaign was only shown in Korea and on-line, so it was an interesting twist to use a bearded late-middle aged white British man. We had a lovely day however going round London to a lot of my favourite places being photographed in the Neithers clothes, including drinking in pubs and cafes, for which yes I was paid!. Below are some of the photos from the shoot. Neithers also made a really nice video which you can watch by clicking on the link below.

One other interesting project that both my wife and I got involved with was a project about sleep by a young artist called Dorothy Singzhang. A photographer came to our house and set up a device over the bed to photograph us in our sleep. I found it an interesting project as most of us, despite the endless photographs we take of ourselves on our phones, have no idea what we look like when we are asleep. The results were put together into a book "Like Someone Alive" and is available from
