was inspired by a complaint that alternative models are generally overlooked in the industry because of a tattoo, piercing etc.
Alternative models are often seen as niche specific with a personal style that may not conform with the mainstream ideals of beauty
So I decided to do a series of portraits which is a mix of wonderful and beautiful individuals that fit the description of being an alternative model as well as individuals of various professions who may not be in front of a camera on a regular base and classical models.
In this book you see some of the images that have been created.
